Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people. [x]
hahaha…”QUICK SKETCH”… hahahahah (even though I don’t know what that is.)
Well, it only took me an hour, so it is a quick sketch (kind of) - and it’s Lexi from Wizards vs Aliens, which is a CBBC show I started watching because of Gwendoline Christie and now I just can’t stop myself :S
I did a quick Lexi sketch today - not 100% happy with it, but I never am anyway.

Fan: Hi! Thank you so much for being here. My question is do you have any hidden talents? Can you sing, can you dance? Do you play an instrument? Are you super flexible –
GA: [grin] Yes.
Fan: And can you show us? If you have any talent, can you show us?
GA: I got a skirt on, I can’t show you how flexible I am. …Anyway, umm.. [shifts in her seat]
