  • Lisa shared from Story: Style, Structure, Substance, and the Principles of Screenwriting by Robert McKee
    The writer works at his skills until knowledge shifts from the left side of the brain to the right, until intellectual awareness becomes living craft.
  • Lisa shared from The Unapologetic Fat Girl's Guide to Exercise and Other Incendiary Acts by Hanne Blank
    Our culture often expects women in general, and fat women in particular, to confine and limit themselves. We are often discouraged, in many different ways, from moving freely, playfully, and happily in the world. We’re not supposed to take up space and be visible and spontaneous and dynamic, colorful or loud or boisterous or rambunctious. Heaven knows we’re not supposed to be fierce, physically unafraid, and fully aware of our own physical power. To which I say: screw that.
