if ubisoft cant animate lady characters then i expect the next assassins creed game to be all men. completely male dominated. not a single woman in the entire game. all npcs, side characters, background characters: every single one of them is a dude. and theyre all gay. all of them. the game must be 80+ hours of playable gay porn.
I just really like fineliners
Moon 2 Moon: NUT: In Egyptian mythology, Nut was the Goddess of the Sky. Her body made a protective layer over the Earth. Nut was the sister and wife of Geb, and the mother of Isis, Osiris, Nephthys, Horus and Seth.

Readers have let me know there are BLLB spoilers in several places on the internet, including in the main tag on Tumblr, on Twitter, and floating about Goodreads. If you’d like to avoid seeing spoilers until Tuesday when the book comes out, I recommend avoiding the tag, turning off your computer, and also possibly closing your eyes. Don’t talk to my sister and probably not your sister either.

Writing a novel in one month can cause some pacing problems for your story, but there are a few things you can do to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. Here are a few ways to make sure your pacing is spot on:
What you should keep in mind is that you need to decide how long you want your novel to be and if you want to continue it after November (which I hope you will!). 50,000 words is the goal of NaNoWriMo, but you’re going to want your novel to be longer than that if you want it to be full-length and publishable. Don’t pace your novel thinking you’ll be done at 50,000 words because chances are you’ll want it to be longer than that. Think about subplots, where your characters will end up, and how you want it all to be tied up. This will help you pace your novel accordingly.
It also helps to vary the types of scenes you include in your novel. You can keep it exciting, but you should include some slower-paced scenes in order to let your readers catch their breath. Without the slow scenes, you want be able to build proper momentum to make those faster scenes exciting.
Great pacing has a lot to do with sentence structure. Short and quick sentences help you speed up your story and make the action feel intense and urgent. Learn what scenes need to be long and what scenes you should take your time with. Don’t rush through important scenes just because you want to hurry to the end. You can always fill in these scenes later, but try to set the groundwork for the editing process. Focus on whether a quick scene or a long scene will have more impact.
Remember that focusing on the right details have a lot to do with increasing the impact of a scene. If something important is happening that you need your readers to focus on, take the time to write out the details. What does the air smell like? Is it cold? Is there any noise? Learning how to incorporate your five senses when writing will help you slow down scenes and improve pacing.
