I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.
"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."
I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.
As someone who fails regularly, I find such comfort in this!
I like this a lot. My college creative writing teacher refused to read the revisions I had done on my stories because he said he knew I was a B student and that wasn’t going to change.
Stephen King’s college writing teacher didn’t think he was very good. My college writing class thought my writing was “babyish” and “stupid fairy tales.” The original teacher didn’t care for me, but she developed medical problems and was replaced by David Bradley, Jr., who made it plain he believed I had what it took. I don’t do writing classes or groups anymore, but I’m still in touch with Bradley, one of the finest writers I’ve ever read.
Autumn Life in the Russian Countryside with @edgy_frog

“Spending time in my countryside house, ‘dacha,’ is always special for me, especially in autumn. It is sad that we can not capture the smell of autumn leaves or fallen apples on the ground in photography,” says Instagrammer Yulia Tepaeva (@edgy_frog) from Vladimir, Russia. “I love the aesthetic of the north. A morning fog, swallows flying around a nest above my window, wheat in my hand. These small details help create a special mood in my photography,” Yulia says. Her love of country life is visible throughout her Instagram feed. “I run through the wind in the forest, and in every type of weather, just to capture the perfect image. My phone and its battery always give up before I do.”
