"Scrivener is the best thing to have happened to my stories. And my comic. And my lesson plans."
- I hate the notion of a certain tool being necessary to create, or at least the idea that “this one thing” will be the thing to help you make your stuff better… But damn scrivener has been SUPER helpful in the last three days.
I’d tried various methods to organize my book/story/comic notes before. Pinboards, posters, sketchbooks, notecards. And those are all great, but somehow scrivener (which is essentlally a digital version of all of this in one place) just works really well for me.
I’m liking the amount of work I’ve gotten done on my stories in the last couple days. I may finish outlining my comic by today. As in the whole thing. Till the end. it’s crazy.
It’s even useful to write my lesson plans with for crying out loud. AH!
asked: So the movie Lucy appears to be completely based on the idea that humans only use ten percent of our brains. However, isn't that completely inaccurate?
It is indeed. It’s super interesting that it’s such a sticky myth…apparently we feel underutilized.
What bothers me most is they could have gone with something really sci-fi to play with and not change the plot drastically. Even something as unexplored as nanobots or something:
"We’ve injected Lucy with nanobots which allow her to alter her biology. At ten percent control she can… at 50 she can manipulate matter around her… etc etc"
And that’s just something I picked at random because nanobots are potentially cool and scary.
Then we shift it from a dialogue of “oh hey when we unlock our brains we get crazy powers what does that mean?” to “Oh hey when we get nanobots we get crazy powers what does that mean? Or wait is it the nanobots who are doing this? Is she changing them or are they changing her? Are all humans scumbag steves?” without having that huge roadblock of widely disproven myth in the way.
I also don’t like the message that somehow unlocking my full potential makes me dangerous to society :/
gotta knock a little harder
AWWWWW FUCK. Just NOW found this kickass artist and the fucking internet made them leave. And they took their archives with them. Aww shit. I dunno what they did to this person (or what this person did to deserve it) but I am seriously pissed at them right now.
EDIT: I was like legit just looking through their archives and suddenly it’s all “So long” and I found out they had to leave due to getting harrased by tumblr peeps…Thank God for the wayback machine.
I still don’t understand what a person can do that allows a few people to harrass and burn someone at a digital stake.
"I never realised before entering the teaching profession that it is a full-time – and by full-time, I mean an every-waking-hour – job. Even during sleep, I dream about school and staff and pupils. There is simply no escape."
