the writing reference “said is dead” post is bad

said is not dead. said is very much alive and should be predominantly used in fiction writing, because if you always use words like mumble and observe and articulate and state and express then it will get very noticeable and irritating!! use “said” and “asked” more than anything, and substitute other fancier words in only when necessary and when it will enrich the content of your writing.

How convenient that JK Rowling made Tom Marvolo Riddle equal I Am Lord Voldemort when it’s obviously supposed to be Mr. Tom, A Dildo Lover.

I’m 100% sure it was just George


First of all fuck you

i loved you, i did. i really wanted this to work, and it’s a shame that it didn’t. but, oh god, i still love you. you are the most interesting person i’ve ever met and your mind is the most beautiful thing. i’m so glad you shared your 3am thoughts with me, and it’s a shame that i won’t be hearing any more of them. i’m glad you shared your hopes and dreams for the future with me, and it’s a shame that i’m not a part of those dreams anymore. i’m glad i spent the majority of my year with you, and it’s a shame that our time together has been cut short. i’m glad i had the opportunity to be yours, and it’s a shame that i’ll be replaced soon, with someone better for you. i’m glad i got to hear your voice, and it’s a shame that i haven’t heard from you since the night you said goodbye. i’m glad i had the chance to sleep beside you, and it’s a shame that the left side of my bed is now empty (i still keep your pillow there, in case you change your mind). i’m glad you used to dance in my thoughts and in my dreams, it’s a shame that i can’t think or sleep anymore. i’m glad i could make you happy, glad i could make you smile and laugh, and it’s a shame that someone else is going to enjoy that view from now on. i’m just glad i had the chance to meet you, to love and be loved by you, to explore you. it truly is a shame that it’s over now, but please know that i loved you more than i have ever loved anyone or anything and i am still in love with you. i don’t think i can shake these feelings as easily as you could, and i’m sorry i couldn’t be what you wanted, i’m sorry this didn’t work as we had hoped, i’m sorry for loving you as much as i did. i’m sorry.

And he was about to kiss her.

No, she was about to kiss him.


Oh, what did it matter?

"Going to kill me, Harry?" he whispered.

Harry stopped right above him, his wand still pointing at
Black's chest, looking down at him. A livid bruise was rising
around Black's left eye and his nose was bleeding.

"You killed my parents," said Harry, his voice shaking slightly
but his wand quite steady.

Black stared up at him out of those sunken eyes.
"I don’t deny it," he said very quietly. "But if you knew the
whole story."
