  • Hi there,
    we started a publishing Book project with 100 Posters of WW1 on Kickstarter.
    Maybe, it’s interesting for someone : )

  • Please note 11th November 2018, isn’t the Centenary of the end the First World War, it’s the Centenary of the Armistice. An Armistice is a cessation of fighting. Yes, that would have been great relief, but it wasn’t the end. It wasn’t until 28th June 1919, with the signing of the Peace Treaty in Versailles that the war ended. It was only then that celebrations took place in the UK to celebrate the end of the war – not before.

  • Take a thought of a character and place him in a scene you believe is great. At that point take another character and place him in a similar scene. How did the scene change, when you put an alternate character in there. In the event that they haven’t changed by any stretch of the imagination, you did awful written work. Do it again and progress. You should see that the scene can’t be the same with 2 distinct characters. Since Motivation and disire is critical.
