Life challenged...

“Harvesting a deer, it’s a bloody business. What’s ugly about watching a deer die isn’t whats ugly about hunting. What’s ugly about watching a deer die is what’s ugly about our need to survive. I think that a lot of people have fallen into a sort of moral trap where they rely on proxy executioners to do their killing for them. The same way when you put your garbage out on the curb and your’e not sure where it goes that’s like when your meat comes and you can rest on this sanctimonious feeling that it was clean and humane. I think what startles people about hunting is that we go out and have a very visceral experience in discovering where our meat comes from. It’s not just something that appears wrapped in cellophane at your grocery store.”

Steven Rinella (via howtoskinatiger)

"visceral" is indeed the word. Besides the killing part itself, when you see life disappearing from the eyes and the muscles relaxing, nothing makes me think more about the very real deal of meat eating than when I am elbow deep in an animal, cupping the intestines.

A weird thing I find incredibly helpful for art/writing.

Eplans.com is a website that sells blueprints for houses. 

This might not seem that helpful but if you want a characters house you can make selections based on what sort of house you want them to live in.

Then browse through the results and find the house you want. Then you can view the blueprints and have a room layout for that house, which can help with visualising the space they live in.

It makes describing generic homes so much easier.
