Did Coulson erect this Marvel’s #AgentsofSHIELD billboard? #SHIELDrises

I am in love with the fact that they put up a billboard that you’d only understand if you’d been closely following the show so far. Rewarding fans ftw. They know who they’re making this stuff for.

Sometimes setting details – like a jungle on fire, or moonlight sparkling on a lake – are so important to plot or character development that it’s appropriate to include visual setting at the launch of a scene. This is often the case in books set in unusual, exotic or challenging locations such as snowy Himalayan mountains, lush inlands or brutal desert climates. If the setting is going to bear dramatically on the characters and the plot, then there is every reason to let it lead into the scene that will follow.

Ohh this is a good one, I’m writing something really setting-centric right meow.

Anonymous asked: Hello! I have been processing this idea in my head about writing a stripper, where she'd work because she loves it and because it's good money. No sad background story besides the fact that the market was hard so she resorted to the adult field. I'm finding it hard to write her, because she's strong, independant and feminist and I want to portray her as realistic as possible, and I want to break the prejudice about women that work on the sex field, but I don't know how to approach it. Help?

fictionwritingtips:

I think the way you’re explaining it to me now is how you should approach it. There are a lot of women who work in this field who are happy to work in this field. They make a lot of money and they are able to support themselves. I would say to seek out these articles online and try to use them to shape your character. 

Interview strippers. Do your homework. The harassment they get is pretty epic.
