A professional script reader read 300 screenplays for five different studios, all the while tracking the many recurring problems. The infographic he made with the collected data offers a glimpse at where screenwriting goes wrong.

this is important even if you don’t write scripts

This is exceedingly important to all storytellers

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

I made a walkthrough of my process for drawing faceted stones! Judging by the timestamps from the screenshots I took, drawing this one stone took an hour and three minutes, although I know I went and checked tumblr a couple times while I was working, so let’s just call it an hour.

Now MISCELLANEOUS NOTES

  • This walkthrough assumes you already know how to use layer masks, the clone stamp, and the lasso tool. There’s also one part where I didn’t label it, but I inverted the selection so I could keep my lines consistent. It’s in the third image.
  • Unfortunately I can’t really help with colour choice and the actual colouring of the pinwheel shape that makes up the back facets, but you can kind of see that I tended to colour with lines that cut across the facets and and kept the outer parts of the facets darker. It would probably be best to find a reference to work from!
  • This particular cut of stone is called the ‘brilliant’ cut.
  • There’s actually a lot of internal reflection business that goes on in a stone, but I elected to ingore all of it since at a distance you can’t really tell anyway.

now GO FORTH AND DAZZLE YOUR FRIENDS WITH YOUR SPARKLE

To add: 
6. The KKK is NOT in Ferguson. However it is confirmed they are raising funds to support the officer who killed Mike Brown.
7. It is, as of 8:15am CST, not confirmed who the police officer is, though a name has been released on Twitter.

Anonymous asked: I don't understand why white people or Europeans still call black people monkeys or say aids came from Africans having sex with monkeys when science research proves that there is a direct link between rhesus monkeys and european blood lines 🐸☕️

With that being said, aids was created by a United States Viral Biomedical Engineer .

His name is: Robert Gallo. I suggest looking him up. Along with the fact that the United States has a patent for Ebola.

…Oh my god. This guy actually has a patent out for HIV. And the US really does have a patent for ebola.

White people haven’t changed their inhuman tactics at all, the only thing that’s changed is the technology to go along with it.

Back in colonial times it was blankets and clothing infected with diseases that only White Europeans carried. Remember that? They’d give it to the indigenous people of said continent as a peace offering then suddenly everybody is dying of an unknown incurable cause. The people are too weak to form an army and the White people take over the government and enslave the people, take their riches, and rape their women.

Nothing new… But it’s something we shouldn’t get used to. We should be angry and we are.

Ended up elaborating on this piece. Satisfied with the results. Been told that she looks a bit like Rihanna, but that wasn’t my intent, lol. Total amount of time put in is about 4 hours.
