Sjw journalists ahoy – sod the idea and instead love the flower crowns. Rather than report see the female envy.
Journalism needs to sack more people
Enjoy this wokeness (tor.com).
I once attended a panel on worldbuilding in young adult literature. All of the authors on the panel were young, brilliant, dynamic women. They wore flower crowns and they talked about mapmaking and spreadsheets. They were impressive as all get-out. I have never felt more intensely envious in my life.
I was jealous of their flower crowns, of course. I was also jealous of the easy way they talked about going in-depth on planning color schemes for each chapter they wrote, and the Pinterest boards they referenced for their character aesthetics. I was jealous of the way their worldbuilding all seemed to start from the ground up, because that seemed to me to be a whole other level of professional-writer-ness. My worldbuilding has always leached out from my character development—I write how a character moves, and their movement defines the world they live in. The women on this panel were talking about writing thousands of words about the world their characters inhabited, all before they put a single line of dialogue on a page. They were clearly worldbuilding masters. I was in awe.
It only took seven words for my awe to become fear. One of the writers leaned forward and grabbed her mic. She looked down along the table, her flower crown tipped at a jaunty, devil-may-care angle. Her lips brushed the mic, and her voice was a little distorted by her enthusiasm, and she said “Okay, but can we talk about maps?”
I do hope unicorns shit pink.
Oh dear me sorry dear i got bored after all what does flower crowns have to do with anything, You can probably guess the journalist who wrote this was a wamin.
That’s an englsh-y thing now.
Lets hope ya books are not oversaturated with flower crowns or female authors.
Remind me not to read women authors this year.
I guess i will be reading less books this year. I am very sure the publishers are cool with that.
