THAT WAS WHAT IT WAS WHAT WHAAAAAAAAAT

I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS SHIT
Ruth’s spritesheet!
Ruth is Rabbi David’s daughter in Time Trials, a game about the first children born on Mars. 
She’s a goody-two-shoes who always gets what she wants.

How to Begin a Novel

Here’s a short survey of the techniques good books use to start. It’s by no means an exhaustive list or even a prescriptive one, but it could help those looking for a little inspiration.

  • Trepidation in style — If the novel is part thriller or horror with an unreliable narrator, make the reader uncertain of their sanity or authenticity. Example: Gone Girl
  • Myopic fascination — Focus on something innocuous and incredibly defined, yet something that isn’t normally discussed, like the design of water slides. Tie the discussion into the plot. Example: The Sun Also Rises (boxing), and yes, Gone Girl (the back of his wife’s head)
  • Anecdote or Aside — Write a short story featuring once-and-done characters that gets going quickly and creates a mystery, leading the reader into the main plot. Note that this is especially effective to smooth what would otherwise be a long build-up (Crichton does this a lot!). Examples: Game of Thrones, Foundation, Jurrasic Park, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (two anecdotes!)
  • Dialogue — Start with a quick back-and-forth between two characters, discussing a major upcoming event or person in your world. Example: Ender’s Game

Myco-heterotrophy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Myco-heterotrophy is a symbiotic relationship between certain kinds of plants and fungi, in which the plant gets all or part of its food from parasitism upon fungi rather than from photosynthesis."

Monotropastrum humile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"It is almost lacking in chlorophyll and therefore is unable to photosynthesise as most plants do; instead it gains sugars and nutrients from mycorrhizal fungi."

Mycorrhiza - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fungi help certain plants to grow.

Ericaceae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The family is largely composed of plants that can tolerate acidic, infertile conditions.
