    Looked for a specific "Writing" thread to post this into - lots of blink and you'll miss 'em efforts but no general, all-you-can-eat area where actual, potential and wannabe scribblers can bang their heads together. Or is there?

    From: Make Your Kid A Writer (via Ta-Nehisi Coates)
    Let her be bored. Let her have long afternoons with absolutely nothing to do. Limit her TV-watching time and her internet-playing time and take away her cell phone. Give her a whole summer of lazy mornings and dreamy afternoons. Make sure she has a library card and a comfy corner where she can curl up with a book.

    Give her a notebook and five bucks so she can pick out a great pen. Insist she spend time with the family. It’s even better if this time is spent in another state, a cabin in the woods, a cottage on the lake, far from her friends and people her own age. Give her some tedious chores to do. Make her mow the lawn, do the dishes by hand, paint the garage. Make her go on long walks with you and tell her you just want to listen to the sounds of the neighborhood.

    Let her be lonely. Let her believe that no one in the world truly understands her. Give her the freedom to fall in love with the wrong person, to lose her heart, to have it smashed and abused and broken. Occasionally be too busy to listen, be distracted by other things, have your nose in a great book, be gone with your own friends. Let her have secrets.

    You know, I keep this thread open at work all day, and am occasionally frustrated when I refresh every five minutes for a couple hours to only one new post, or none at all.

    But it's worth it when I open it in the morning and see a bunch of awesome posts like these.

    Please accept this as a token of my appreciation:

    "Eyeshield 21" Artist Posts Fun, Inventive Manga to Twitter - As comics alliance put it, the most inventive comic you'll see all week ( I'd wager all year tho')

    A good reminder to all that there are some things that can only be done on paper, and that Comics can Do Anything.

    sample panel (more at the link above):

    A friend of mine has thousands of VHS tapes that he's finally getting around to posting clips of on Youtube, Everything is Terrible style. Here's one of his first.


    edited to add: @worsethandetroit, that comic is fantastic.
