@HTHR - don't introduce an important character, concept, or thing after the first half of the plot
- characters should enter a scene with information or leave with intent
- if exposition is necessary, tie it to an emotion so it becomes a character's motive rant
- first draft of the scene should have all the emotions and motives on the surface, final draft should push most of those things into subtext

ah yes it's time again for the mystery of "why do i feel like hot garbage" to be solved by It's That Time of the Month

having a months-long moment of needing to fight the urge to hypercaffeinate myself because being really wired temporarily soothes my anxiety

I do actually think that one of the most dangerous facts of the social media-fication of our internet experience is that our news looks like our jokes looks like our propaganda looks like our updates from friends and family, as if it's all equally important and true.
