I think I need a break from tumblr.
This twist and shout stuff is just getting to be too much. I understand where the writers are coming from asking people not to publish their own copies of twist and shout, because yeah, it can be exploited and there’s some unfortunate people out there who were trying to profit off it, but I don’t feel like I did anything wrong and yet I’m getting so upset by everything that’s going on. So I’m taking a break until this is over. Please don’t ask me any more about my book. I am no longer willing to help people make their own. If you want it, you’re going to have to try on your own. If I have previously helped you, please remember the terms of our agreement and do not redistribute anything I sent to you.
I will be removing the how-to post shortly, although my original post will not be taken down. My twist and shout tag will also be made publicly unavailable.
And while I have everyone’s attention, I would like to publicly apologize to the authors if I have done anything to make them uncomfortable. Please know that this all came from a place of love and incredible respect for the story and the impact it had on my life. Please be assured that had I know of your disapproval of the publishing and had had a way to contact you, I would have asked permission before I printed a personal copy. As it is, I cannot change what I’ve done, but I do assure you that I took the upmost care not to edit the story beyond obvious grammar issues and had no intention of profiting from it in any way at all.
To all my followers, I will be on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time. I need to calm down and step back. Thank you for your support.
In health class we were given sheets of paper and told to write a message we would want someone of the opposite sex to know
She read some examples
The girls were like: “Hey can you please not treat me like shit”
The boys were like: “Spray tans look ugly I hate when girls wear too much makeup and don’t lead me on.”
Mother cat walks through flames 5 times to save kittens from building fire in Brooklyn, NY.
That’s a FUCKING mother right there. Best mother of the year award goes to a god damn cat. I wish my mom was a cat
Oh my god this made me cry…those kittens don’t have a mark on them…what a brave, amazing mama she is. <3
Best mother of the year? Try best mother of ever
I can’t even look at the twist and shout tag right now. I’m so upset.
I am no longer answering anonymous questions regarding the twist and shout book. If you’d like to discuss something privately with me, please send me a fanmail or ask NOT on anon.
Being called beautiful by a former supermodel is the most affirming thing to ever happen to me and I’m so happy right now.
