George R. R. Martin everyone.
My favourite thing about this gifset is that George R. R. Martin acknowledges both of these methods without insulting or dismissing the other. He is a fantastic writer and I know that some other fantastic writers swear by their methods and discount the others, which can be really disheartening as a young writer. Hearing him describe both of these methods without dismissing the other makes me very, very happy, as I am very much an architect and I always get so sad when every writer I look up to is like “NO PLANNING. PLANNING BAD. WRITERS DONT PLAN.”
So thank you, Mr. Martin.
Can this post reach 7 million until Christmas?
#I feel like this is kinda how it is when you meet your favorite celebrity#its this moment you’ve been waiting for for so long#and when it finally happens its this glorious moment#and even though its only a few seconds#its probably the best moment of your life#something you will cherish and think about forever#but to them you’re just another face in the crowd#someone they will never think about again#and its really tragic when you think about it
That’s really depressing… thanks. But it’s true.. I think about that all the time.
No, but think about it. He’s not being rude. He wants to remember. “I met you once.” And he has to go through over 900 years worth of memory, every stranger he’s ever met. He does remember her. He just needs a hint.
He’s never met an unimportant person before. He remembers her. He just needs a hint.
Hands down, my favorite reoccurring joke.You forgot this one
I remember a man stopping me in Oxford Street
once, looking at me with absolute incredulity; he
couldn’t believe it. He said, ‘Tom Baker?’ A man in
his late thirties. I said, ‘Yes’. He said, ‘Tom Baker?’ I
said, ‘Yes!’ And he looked at me and in his brain he
catapulted back in time and he said, ‘You know, when I
was a boy, I was in a home for children; nobody wanted
us, you know? It was terrible. And you made Saturday
night good.’ And I went to say something to him and I
could see him so close to tears that he couldn’t speak.
And he shook his head as if to say, ‘Don’t go on, don’t
remind me’ and he just did [a thumbs up]. Such a
common thing, isn’t it, but suddenly backed up with
an expression on his face through his tears that was
a knighthood. It was a knighthood. Just thumbs up,
meaning it was great, and thanks. It’s incredible, isn’t
it? Just a gesture.
