Hello there, Wednesday!

Whose writing advice will you trust? Really useful post here about who to listen to, and why.

Why it’s good to horrify children. Talks about, among other things, ‘Salem’s Lot, which (though not mentioned in the article) has of course a smart kid who knows his horror better than the grown-ups could ever hope to. And I love this quote from the article:

Children have a hardwired sense of justice, and of right and wrong. It’s adults who engage in games of moral compromise, who seek to justify their sins and the sins of others by falling back on pleas of necessity, impotence or that old reliable: ”It’s very complicated. You’re just a bit too young to be able to understand.”

Finally. Muppets.
