A Writing PSA
'Courage' is active, 'bravery' is reactive.

this person wrote a noun, listed it as an adjective, and defined and used it as a verb
Let’s talk about Ginny Weasley for a second.
In “Goblet of Fire” (Chapter 22 - The Unexpected Task) Harry and Ron are trying to find dates for the Yule Ball. We are privy to this lovely exchange between Ron and his sister:“Right,” said Ron, who looked extremely put out, “this is getting stupid. Ginny, you can go with Harry, and I’ll just -”
“I can’t,” said Ginny, and she went scarlet too. “I’m going with - with Neville. He asked me when Hermione said no, and I thought… well… I’m not going to be able to go otherwise, I’m not in fourth year.” She looked extremely miserable. “I think I’ll go and have dinner,” she said, and she got up and walked off to the portrait hole, her head bowed.
Ginny more-badass-than-Chuck-Norris Weasley, without hesitation, turns down the opportunity to go to a very romantic holiday dance with Harry Potter, school champion and her crush of 4 years, in order to go with Neville not-yet-grown-into-his-badassery Longbottom because she’d already said she would.
Yeah, she’s embarassed. Hell yeah she’s miserable. Fuck yeah she wants to go with Harry. But it didn’t even cross her mind to cancel on Neville.
Ginny isn’t just funny, flirty and good at Quidditch—she’s a good person and I really really want to go re-read the series now, bye.

fathom--less-deactivated2014021 asked: So I've got this bad case of writer's block. I CAN'T WRITE ANYTHING. Do you have any advice?
Okay! Don’t worry!
This following paragraph is taken from an old post of ours;
Writer’s Block, otherwise known as The Wall or quite simply, a loss of inspiration, is where an aspiring writer has nothing to write about. As much as they want to, they have nothing. Some give up, others persevere and lose the fun in writing, and it shows.
Writer’s Block is not the end, however! Here are five useful ways of combating it:
- Leave it. Leave the story to one side for a while, and go do something else. Just passively think of where you could take the story while doing something else.
- Seek inspiration in similar things. Go and read, watch, listen to or play something on a similar subject matter. Don’t plagiarise, obviously, but use the little things to boost your creativity!
- Write something else. Sometimes, a change of scenery is needed. Most writers have more than one story on the go at a time! Often, when they hit The Wall with one, they switch to another, and by the time they come back to the original, the inspiration’s back.
- Create character profiles. Have someone from a character’s past show up, use a phobia or addiction to twist the plot.
- Just make something up. Seriously, just put pen to paper or hand to keyboard, then let yourself write. You’ll be surprised at what happens. [original here]
