I’m getting really frustrated over a project idea because I want to really tell this story but I’m not sure what’s the best medium to do it.
At first, I was gonna just write some novel-length thing with this idea in mind- The problem? The more I thought of the story, the more I thought about how I wasn’t sure what direction it should go in. So then I started thinking, well, why not a ‘choose your own adventure’ sort of story? Where the reader would choose what the character does next, and that would impact the story.
Oh- But that won’t work as a novel. It’s kind of a pain to do that with a book, as you’ll have to tell people to “if you choose this option, go to page 73!” after every scene.
So then I started thinking about an app. A web app or something that can be played on a tablet or smart phone. Problem? No one will be interested without pictures. I haven’t drawn in a really long time.
But it’s not like I can’t get back into art, right? Okay. So now I’m looking at an app idea and maybe a website for a version you can read on your browser as well. Problem?
Skills needed for the project: Writing, drawing, programming (Javscript/Ajax or Java or C++), story boarding, planning….
All things I’m interested in, but nothing I’m REALLY good at.
It’s turning out to be a long term project and I’m really worried I’m going to stop. But if I can pull it off- If I can start the project, even if it just starts with a blog detailing the project- I would have something that could potentially put me on the map for a lot of markets.
But I have no idea if I can pull it off or not.
The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.
She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”
The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “
For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”
"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."
I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.

Cause she doesn’t know who else to take if she wins.
What a great message. I wish all characters were this nice. Does anyone know what this is from?
