Quote 3 Feb 25,449 notes

I was asked in an interview once: You’re writing another book with a female lead? Aren’t you afraid you’re going to be pigeonholed? And I thought, I write a team superhero book, an uplifting solo hero book, I write a horror-western, and I write a ghost story. What am I gonna be pigeonholed as?

Has a man in the history of men ever been asked if he was going to be pigeonholed because he wrote two consecutive books with male leads? Half of the population is women. I lose my temper here. And it’s certainly not at you. It’s just this pervasive notion that “white male” is the default. And you have to justify any variation from it.

I am so lucky to count Kelly Sue as one of my dearest friends. She’s amazing.

"The very best [infographics] engender and facilitate an insight by visual means — allow us to grasp some relationship quickly and easily that otherwise would take many pages and illustrations and tables to convey. Insight seems to happen most often when data sets are crossed in the design of the piece — when we can quickly see the effects on something over time, for example, or view how factors like income, race, geography, or diet might affect other data. When that happens, there’s an instant “Aha!”…"  - David Byrne via Brainpickings

I’ve said it before - you can tell a lot about people from their home. Collectors tend to all do the same thing or at least identify themselves in similar ways. We display things! In clusters, on their own - it’s about showmanship but not in a “look at me” way. It’s about the pieces and creating a space which is beautiful in our eyes.
