A kind follower reminded me of that '7 Cardinal Rules of Life' post going around, and they asked me if I would ever do my take on them (that being, a writerly take). Well, seeing as how I’ve been running a Writer Positivity series for over 100 posts, I thought it would be a fun chance to collect some of my favorite advice!

PS: The above are not meant to be taken as ‘literal’ rules for writing, but rather advice for leading the lifestyle of a writer~ ♥︎

It isn’t so far fetched to believe that humans of that time period were on the cutting edge of todays technology. To me it seems that the evidence is just there temporary without a story. So until the absolute truth surfaces, theories are welcomed to pick at our brains. - EvolvingElement

According to ChinaCulture.Org article titled

A Lingering Mystery:Longyou Grottoes" by Jeff of ChinaCulture.org

" In June, 1992, a villager named Wu Anai, unable to suppress the long-felt curiosity inside him any more, decided to pump the water out in one of the swags to confirm his presumption of a natural water-eroded cave.

Wu called in another three villagers with some money and a water pump. On June 9, 1992, they began their project. At the beginning, Wu pinned high hope on his adventurous program. But after four days and nights of continuous pumping, the mouth of the swag became larger, and the water level fell much slower. The depth of the water still cannot be measured. The only difference was that some steles began to appear on the surface of the water. Wu and his companions began to worry that the water could never be pumped out and their capital would also just flow away with the water without any discovery at all.

However, these steles out of the water surface gave them some hope. Because there were some distinctive carving traces on these steles, which indicated that human being once came to this bottomless swag. Much encouraged by these carvings, Wu and his companions decided to continue to pump with three more water pumps 24 hours a day.

After 17 days, a big black cave appeared in front of them.

A bit scared and surprised, they groped to the bottom of the cave. With the help of the sunshine from the mouth of the cave, a grand and delicately designed grotto gradually came to their sight. The grotto is not a natural water-eroded cave as Wu had expected, but obviously a human-made project. The floor of the grotto occupies more than 2,000 square meters, with the tallest point of the cave exceeding 30 meters. The four steles are symmetrically distributed in the cave. However, there is no trace of human movement left in the cave at all, as if its owner had in someway suddenly disappeared.

The discovery of this cave largely encouraged Wu and his companions, who then decided to pump the water out of another four caves. They found the caves were generally the same in structure, differing mainly in scale. The villagers were baffled by these mysterious caves, not realizing that their discovery was going to be the largest manmade underground construction cluster in the world.’ - Jeff of ChinaCulture.org

Oliver Stone:South Of The Boarder 

"There’s a revolution underway in South America, but most of the world doesn’t know it. Oliver Stone sets out on a road trip across five countries to explore the social and political movements as well as the mainstream media’s misperception of South America while interviewing seven of its elected presidents. In casual conversations with Presidents Hugo Chávez (Venezuela), Evo Morales (Bolivia), Lula da Silva (Brazil), Cristina Kirchner  (Argentina), as well as her husband and ex-President Nėstor Kirchner,  Fernando Lugo  (Paraguay), Rafael Correa (Ecuador), and Raúl Castro  (Cuba), Stone gains unprecedented access and sheds new light upon the exciting transformations in the region." - Synopsis Page
