an important reminder as ‘4th of July’ rolls around

George R. R. Martin everyone.
My favourite thing about this gifset is that George R. R. Martin acknowledges both of these methods without insulting or dismissing the other. He is a fantastic writer and I know that some other fantastic writers swear by their methods and discount the others, which can be really disheartening as a young writer. Hearing him describe both of these methods without dismissing the other makes me very, very happy, as I am very much an architect and I always get so sad when every writer I look up to is like “NO PLANNING. PLANNING BAD. WRITERS DONT PLAN.”
So thank you, Mr. Martin.
I am by and large an architect but I am not opposed to my building gaining sentience and doing what it wants along the way, a la a gardener. So I feel this. I feel it so hard. Also:
"No one is purely an architect or a gardener in terms of writers, but many writers tend to one side or the other."
GEORGE R. R. MARTIN, YOU MAY NOT BE PERFECT, BUT THAT SENTENCE IS. THANK YOU.

Santa Monica Pier, circa 2012. The traditional end point of Route 66. Take that walk out to the Pacific Ocean after the long drive.
How can two brothers generate such paranoia?
The Koch Brothers need the Keystone XL up and running to generate $100 b in profits. No problem they are businessmen.
Now the paranoia part: Americans for Prosperity (AFP)
Georgia makes it illegal to “Live Off the Grid”, all homes must be hooked up to power utilities even if they have their own power. AFP bankrolled legislation
Oklahoma requires special fees to be charged to home owners installing solar panels. AFP bankrolled legislation
Arizona attracts investors for new solar plant on BLM land. 20 year old rancher/BLM feud hits National Media, investors back out because of adverse Media. AFP supports “Volunteers” assisting Bundy
Tennessee outlaws Public Transit, not only State Level, but even local. AFP bank rolled legislation.
It seems the Koch Bros have through the AFP declared war not just on the 21st century, but on the concept of conservation.
this is all sorts of wrong
