“I like to live in the sound of water, in the feel of the mountain air. A sharp reminder hits me: this world still is alive; it stretches out there shivering toward its own creation, and I’m part of it. Even my breathing enters into this elaborate give-and-take, this bowing to sun and moon, day and night, winter, summer, storm, still—this tranquil chaos that seems to be going somewhere. This wilderness with a great peacefulness in it. This motionless turmoil, this everything dance.”—William Stafford (via slekes)
Make something today. Don’t think about making something. Don’t plan out how to make something. Don’t tell someone you are going to make something. Actually make something today.
There are lots of people out there that look at people who have made something, directed a film, written a book, drawn a comic, any number of things, and often I hear them say, “I just need someone to give me a chance to do something like that. When will I get my chance?” The thing is, true creators don’t wait to be given a chance. They must create. They must make things. They must express themselves. You can’t stop someone who must create. No one can. Almost all the great innovators and artists of the world have created because they must. They have not choice. They may have had some opportunities come along that are unique, or acted as a catalyst to launching their career, but those lucky breaks only happened because they were prepared for them. After all, luck is really just the intersection of opportunity and preparedness.
So today, rather than thinking about what you want to do, or talking about doing something, actually do something. Creation is often fueled by momentum, so get started on something. Even if you only get a little bit done today, it will be more than you had to start and will almost surely help to propel you towards continuing to make something tomorrow.
The name is Watson, Joan Watson. Lucy Liu is set to play Sherlock Holmes’ sidekick in CBS’ drama pilot Elementary, whose tweaks to Arthur Connan Doyle’s classic include switching Watson’s gender to female. The project, written by Robert Doherty, is set in present day and stars Jonny Lee Miller as eccentric Brit Holmes, a former consultant to Scotland Yard whose addiction problems led him to a rehab center in New York City.
…I won’t lie. I wish they cast Sherlock as a female too.
Oh, now I find the whole post. haha.
Okay, at least Sherlock will be British… but I just don’t see this going overly well. They’re going to lose the magic in it. To be honest, I can see Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock doing equally well in 1895 as in 2012. They wrote the quintessential character - but this… no. Sorry, CBS! Write your own story and don’t call it Elementary. This is going to cross into the uncanny valley of adaptation writing.

I honestly think I’d be a little more cool with it if Sherlock were female and Watson was the guy.
Instead of. well, you know. The man lead with the female sidekick. :l boooooring
This is the part where I should say “I won’t judge it until I see it”, but I don’t think I’m interested in it enough to even give it a try.
Oh come on. Female companion?? What is this, Doctor Who? Complete with a romantic relationship, I bet - as if they could pass that up.
This has been a rumor that’s been going around for AGES. it’d still be GLORIOUS if it happened haha
(wouldn’t surprise me if it didn’t though….honestly- I want John Simm back. 8] )
I really liked John Simm’s Master but honestly… I’d like to see how the on-screen chemistry is between Matt Smith and John Simm before I’d say I’d want him back for sure. The real point to the character of the Master to me is how he interacts with the Doctor. I’m not sure how they’d play John Simm’s Master against Matt Smith’s Doctor.
Benedict Cumberbatch as the Master sounds perfect, naturally… so I like the idea of John Simm regenerating into Benedict Cumberbatch as a good compromise between the two.
But again, it would depend on the chemistry between Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch. You just can’t throw anybody into such an important role opposite the Doctor even if they are Sherlock… XD
Howdy, my lovely Sherlockians! I’ve got three packs of stickers left, which is 10 sheets of 8. To break myself of the stickering addiction, I’ve decided to give these thee packs away to my friends on tumblr. You can pick up to 20 of the designs (as seen previously on floppybelly.tumblr.com/tagged/stickers ) to be included in your pack, the better to stick around your town or campus. Here’s what to do in order to be considered for the drawing:
1. Reblog this post. Simple enough, right? Try to keep the double-reblogs to a minimum, I imagine that might make it tough to keep track of folks.
2. Include a oneword prompt for me to write about. Please make sure it’s not one that I’ve already done! (previous prompts can be seen at floppybelly.tumblr.com/tagged/prompt)
And that’s it! I’ll draw 3 winners from the reblogs on leap day (Feb. 29) then send out the stickers shortly thereafter.
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.”—Neil Gaiman (via la-lacrima)
“Books can be possessive, can’t they? You’re walking around in a bookstore and a certain one will jump out at you, like it had moved there on its own, just to get your attention. Sometimes what’s inside will change your life, but sometimes you don’t even have to read it. Sometimes it’s a comfort just to have a book around. Many of these books haven’t even had their spines cracked. ‘Why do you buy books you don’t even read?’ our daughter asks us. That’s like asking someone who lives alone why they bought a cat. For company, of course.”—Sarah Addison Allen, The Sugar Queen (via -bookworm)
