Best Internet of the Week

A few internet wins from the week. I know you'll enjoy:

--A short imagined dialogue between an accountant and a manic pixie dream girl while preparing her taxes.

--A very funny tumblr that takes on Family Circus, Time is a Flat Circus.

--And 12 Keys To Stronger Writing, by Annie Dillard.

“You could think that your voice as a writer would just emerge naturally, all on its own, with no help whatsoever, but you’d be wrong. What I saw on the page was that the voice is in fact trapped, nervous, lazy. Even, and in my case, most especially, amnesiac. And that it had to be cut free.”

Have a great week, everyone!

  4. Is it weird that I can totally relate to the pixie/accountant dialogue?! That was genius. And also similar to tax season here this year :) (though I tried not to glitter bomb my accountant).

  5. The internet is pretty awesome, and when it makes me laugh like this, I love it so much.
