Readers who've been with me for awhile likely remember my earlier iterations of Tai's Story. While I'm quite proud of my dialogue writing nowadays, back then it was a little... pretentious and unwiel...
OK, not exactly. But I'm still going to have a whinge about this. Personal bitching time. The stuff I should keep to myself, the ranting that exposes my pettiness for what it is! So I decided, somewh...

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.” -Buddha
“What do you think an artist is? An imbecile who has only eyes, if he is a painter, or ears if he is a musician, or a lyre in every chamber of his heart if he is a poet, or even, if he is a boxer, just his muscles? Far from it; at the same time, he is a political being, constantly aware of the heartbreaking, passionate, or delightful things that happen in the world, shaping himself completely in their image. How could it be possible to feel no interest in other people, and with a cool indifference, to detach yourself from the very life which they bring to you so abundantly? No, (Art) is not done to decorate apartments. (Art) is an instrument of war.”— Pablo Picasso
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences." - C.S Lewis
"Real revolution begins at learning. If you're not angry, you're not paying attention." - Tim McIlrath
"... there are legitimate problems with this world, and the biggest hurdle for the people trying to fix them are assholes who don't take them seriously simply because they're trying to tell them something is wrong.
