the reason why black people don’t want you hoes using AAVE is because when we use it we’re seen as “uneducated” and you use it to mock us

Writing Inaccuracies: What Are You Doing To Kill Your Novel?

not-so-classicallytrainedwriter:

Okay, this may or may not be a series of posts on all sorts of things that will most definitely kill your novel, but today, I’m going to explain why inaccuracies of all kinds kill your novel. Inaccuracies are frustrating, horrible, annoying, and make your novel pretty much unreadable. While you may be able to overlook them, your readers might not want to!

Types of Inaccuracies You Might Have Written: 

1. Real-world flaws: Get the facts right. A dollar is always equal to four quarters. Missing teenagers do get noticed by cops and parents and school. Account for these things. 

2. Constructed-world flaws: If your world has its own religion, do not have them swearing at God. It makes absolutely no sense, but amateur writers do it anyway. By Jove, even the Romans had sayings to reflect their religious beliefs!  Make sure your constructed-world is consistent within itself.

3. Inconsistencies: This is perhaps the most annoying. If you say she has violet eyes, don’t describe them as sky blue EVER. Unless there is something seriously wrong with her and it’s relevant to the plot. Whatever. If the walls are yellow, they will always be yellow unless someone paints them. Keep your details straight.

If someone ever tells you a certain song is important to them you should turn it up and lay on your bed and close your eyes and really listen to it even if its 10 minutes long because at the end you will know that person much better I think

My love for this post is unbelievable.
