Writing Rant: I want to be an Actor!   Leave a comment

Lately I have been thinking:Why do actors and athletes get paid so much? Writers work just as hard, if not harder, and have a much higher rate of failure. Especially the actors. Everyone knows there names what movies they’ve been in, who they’re dating, etc. etc. etc. But in the end they wouldn’t be where they are now if it wasn’t for writers. Sure it can be difficult to get into character. But they are getting into one or two character’s heads per movie. A writer does the same job as an actor, only instead of one or two characters it is all of them. Instead of reading a line or two off a page, we are improvising and writing, and then re-writing. The actors don’t have to come up with a plot. I can’t help but to think writers are getting cheated somehow. It’s like the screenwriters are the first mouse who snaps the trap, and the actors get the cheese. END RANT.

15 bloggers… that’s going to take some thinking so I’ll get back to that.^o^

7 things about myself:

  1. I’m addicted to pocky (a cookie like snack).
  2. I think foreign movies and dramas are way more original than American entertainment right now.
  3. I love learning new things, the more random the better.
  4. I hate bananas.
  5. My favorite colors are white and black.
  6. Pencils are my enemy (even when I’m doing math). I prefer writing with gel pens.
  7. I am not fond of children (especially crying ones) or child actors.

11 Websites With Free Stuff   Leave a comment

by Elizabeth Huff

The title may be a bit misleading because only some of the are actually websites, the others are programs that you need to download from the websites. The links take you to sites where you can download them (most are softonic or filehippo).

  • CCleaner – to help keep your computer clean and organized (electronically, that is).
  • w3schools – learn how to do all that technical programming stuff.
  • Malwarebytes – to keep your computer free of malware and other bad stuff.
  • bplans – free sample business plans in almost every category imaginable.
  • Keepvid – allows you to download videos off of youtube (and I believe a couple other sites).
  • Deviant Art – for all the image inspiration you will probably ever need.
  • Format Factory – Converts many different types of video and audio into many other different types of video and audio.
  • Celtx – free screenwriting software.
  • Softonic – free downloads of lots of different programs.
  • byki – language learning program, with several to choose from.
