At the time I knew very little about this character. Things have changed. I now know the character’s gender, name, age… some of her motivations.

But this process is annoying. I am a writer. But working on two projects at once is a bit much. I have finished my outline for this “mystery character’s” story. But I am still elbow deep in my “current” story. But this new character will not stop following me. Continue reading

18 Animated Gifs That Got The Michael Bay Treatment

Originally posted on TwistedSifter:

This. Is. BAYHEM!

When Michael Bay directs animated gifs, explosions happen. Lots of them. A recent reddit post by jerip123 entitled, Unecessary Explosions unearthed a subreddit called /r/michaelbaygifs, described as ‘gifs, Michael Bay style’.

I’ve also embedded an excellent video by Tony Zhou that explores ‘Bayhem‘ ? his style of camera movement, composition and editing that creates something overblown, dynamic and distinct. It’s worth a watch if you’re into film.

Last Week a Character began Following Me … A Writer’s Journey

http://ri.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=AwrTcXpIVlVUsDoA4EqjzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBxNG1oMmE2BHNlYwNmcC1hdHRyaWIEc2xrA3J1cmwEaXQD/RV=2/RE=1414907592/RO=11/RU=http%3a%2f%2fshades-differentcolours.blogspot.com%2f2012%2f12%2fshadows.html/RK=0/RS=Wx_Gs8Bo7LVIcF74KBFTUn._LBc-Last week a character I did not recognize began following me.

Creepy? Not really. Annoying? Very. Maybe this is a good thing… but it is very distracting. I am currently committed to writing a novel, and committed to the characters in that novel. I don’t know the name, gender, or age of this figure. I can only tell you this figure is human… and began following me the other night. So yes… my next story idea is already brewing. But it is difficult to focus on my current project while this new character is stalking me… Continue reading

Yes… I voted

American-Flag3

In Oregon we use mail in ballot. I turned in my ballot last week. You should vote too… even though money has a massive influence in politics… every person still has a vote. Collectively people can counter the power of money.

Easy as ABC?? Our kid can read… but cannot spell

Decorating on a budget: As easy as ABCI’ve been working with our foster kid on her letters and words. She’s only three.

Her alphabet goes like this…

“A B C D E F G H I J A L M M O V Q R S mee 2 G W X Y and Geeee, now I said my ABGs, now what do you you think of me.”

Okay. She’s only three… pretty cute.

But to help her learn her letters, I spelled words for her. I spelled her name, pony, and other words that I know she likes.

I do the following routine: “P – O – N -Y, that spells Pony.” I have a page of at least twenty words on it.

After doing several words, I pointed to the word pony, and she said, “One, two, three, A – G – M -B -C, and that spells pony.” I blinked, totally confused but also impressed. I pointed to another word (pink). She said, “One, two, three, A, B, C, D, E… and that spells pink!”

I pointed to the word (food), and she said, “One, two, three… Q, A, A, B… and that spells food!” She gets Os and As confused, along with all the other letters. But she remembers the words!?

I think this is good for a three-year-old but I’m not sure. Either way, it’s been fun teaching her how to read. She’ll get the alphabet eventually because she seems intelligent and wants to learn.
