I want to run up, hug her, and wisp her away from all those mean, overreacting arrows.
For heavens sake, the area they live in is based off a place populated by WHITE PEOPLE. A black person would have been a token black, and therefore insulting. As for not being the original story... I can go read the original myself. The original has already been done. It would have been lazy to just copy it.
Plus, how it is sexist? The Queen was allowed to rule without getting married, the princess was allowed to decide who was left in charge, and two of the three main "good" characters where female! Then it turns out to be about sisterly love, a force that saved the day. Not only is that the opposite of sexist, it is also the opposite of "focuses more on romance". The romance, in my opinion, was much more tasteful and accurate than any other Disney film I have seen (most films in general, actually) and added

|This is my precious fat cat Patchy, aka Patch or Patches. She is getting older now and has finally lost all that weight, which I made sure of since she‘s not so active anymore. She is my furry consoler and snuggle buddy. |
Patchy enjoys classical music played on the piano (no I‘m not kidding), snuggling people and rabbits, grooming her sister and bullying purse dogs. She also likes to lick my legs when I get out of the shower, which tickles, and is absolutely fascinated by the refrigerator. She has stood down a wolf dog and will kill any scorpion that comes into the house. If you haven’t figured it out already, Patches is an awesome cat.
What Makes A Good Editor?IntroductionWhat Makes A Good Editor? by JRollendz
A good editor has many qualities and a lot of responsibilities.
Editors are necessary. They're like a test run before something gets printed or posted online. The editor is the first person to read it, aside from the writer, and can fix the mistakes before it's shown to the public.
Think of it like a new car design. Before it goes on sale or is even made, the design is created for a specific reason. It's then tested for numerous things before being sold to the public.
Likewise, an editor needs to decide if what they're editing is worth the time. Is there a purpose to the piece? Does it benefit the public or audience? If so, it's then "tested" by various means (such as length, grammar and punctuation, accuracy and fairness, and ethics), and put up against the editor's personal qualities (like patience, time management, decision making, objectivity, accountability, etc.).
The following will detail these means and qualities to show what makes a good editor, specifi
The pants went in the washer. As I washed the pre-additive soap off my hands the sink made a scary gurgling sound. It startled me, but then I smiled, a big smile, and giggled. I still feel better. I have come to the conclusion (something I already knew but had been avoiding) that just doing the things that I have the urge to do, such as going outside whenever the fancy hits me, or watching an educational video, is a large part of beating depression. And I must ignore the things which I know will entertain me but at the same time, at its core, make me feel miserable. Things such as the excessive reading of fan fiction, log stretches of TV watching, aimless internet surfing, and overall procrastination and reclusive behavior. It is not so much that I must force daily life upon myself, but that I must allow myself to be happy, to go outside the lines when I need to, and to take time to notice and appreciate all the little things that happen from moment to moment. To do what needs to be done and to take joy from knowing that I am doing something that needs to be done instead of ignoring it, and thus feeling bad about ignoring it. This is hard to explain, but for me it seems to work. When I do these things, I feel my vitality.
I finished the first video. I highly recommend it. Especially the end.
The second video was not about what I expected it to be about, but it helped me nonetheless. I now have a better understanding of why the stuff I mentioned above works. Plus, it helped me understand people and motivational skills better. I highly recommend this video as well.
