the fact that people are like “Coca Cola supports racial equality, I’m not going to be drinking Coca Cola anymore” and “Google supports gay rights I’m not going to use them anymore” like what next “the Earth provides Oxygen to ethnic minorities I’m going to stop breathing in protest”

Hopefully

How petty

just look at babe ruth’s face tho
so confused

pure hater shit

Jackie Mitchell…a bad ass lady I had never heard of. 

From her Wikipedia page: “Seventeen-year-old Jackie Mitchell, brought in to pitch in the first inning after the starting pitcher had given up a double and a single, faced Babe Ruth. After taking a ball, Ruth swung and missed at the next two pitches. Mitchell’s fourth pitch to Ruth was a called third strike. Babe Ruth glared and verbally abused the umpire before being led away by his teammates to sit to wait for another batting turn. The crowd roared for Jackie. Babe Ruth was quoted in a Chattanooga newspaper as having said:

"I don’t know what’s going to happen if they begin to let women in baseball. Of course, they will never make good. Why? Because they are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day."

Next up was the Iron Horse Lou Gehrig, who swung through the first three pitches to strike out. Jackie Mitchell became famous for striking out two of the greatest baseball players in history.
A few days after Mitchell struck out Ruth and Gehrig, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided her contract and declared women unfit to play baseball as the game was “too strenuous.”[5][10] Mitchell continued to play professionally,barnstorming with the House of David, a men’s team famous for their very long hair and long beards.[11] While travelling with the House of David team, she would sometimes wear a fake beard for publicity.”
TL;DR: teenage girl strikes out two of the greatest baseball players ever, teenage girl gets her contract voided, teenage girl plays baseball wearing fake beard

These guys were so fucking injured by a teenage girl’s awesomeness that they literally threw a hissyfit and hung up a sign that said “NO GIRLS.”
They gave up.
They couldn’t handle it.
Losers. 
Teenage girls are amazing.

Hi! I was wondering if you have any tips on how to start a story? I have a good plot figured out and I have gotten all of my characters sorted, I just don't know how or where to start, and it has been this way from a few days. :)

Well I don’t get many questions to answer and I am not sure how much I can help.  Figuring out where/how to start is in part a personal choice. I am partial to lots of outlining. I get my idea and characters and then start going through the story.  I don’t outline every detail, but I do tend to flesh out the outline as I write.  This is really where I start I have the plot in my mind, the characters sketched out and then I work through the plot by details and outline that.

Now your question is not that detailed on how much of your plot and characters you have figured out and whether or not you are an organized person or go with the flow (in NaNo WriMo terms Plotter or Pantser), so I will go with all angles.

The best way to start writing is to literally start writing.  You can start with the first scene, the scene you are looking forward to writing most or just set a timer and start typing.  One method I have used is to start with a writing exercise.  Find a prompt that goes with your plot and write that, just start free writing the thoughts of a particular character (plus points this lets you get to know them a bit and find their voice), or combine the two.  One thing I have done is taken a character(s) grocery shopping.  Mundane I know, but think about what items the would buy, what they might salivate over, what might them contemplate grocery story homicide (getting run over with a cart, screaming kids, long lines), etc.  Again you get to know your character get some words on the page and get into the flow.

As I said up above outlining is another good way to start.  If you outline where you can probably start writing serious scenes pretty easy.  Best suggestion is start from the beginning and only move around if inspiration strikes. 

No matter what you choose timed writing is a good start.  I like the write or die program as it keeps me writing and penalizes me for stopping.  Set it for 10-15 minutes and just start free writing (whatever comes to mind).  It may not be the most productive in terms of storytelling but it can be really helpful in getting started and occasionally getting bursts of inspiration.

So to also help check out my Writing Resources page as it has links to prompts, and plotting methods not to mention a whole lot of other useful things (like a link to Write or Die and other writing programs).  Hopefully this helps some.

The amazing thing about putting trust in God is when you’re standing at the cliff and He tells you to jump, it isn’t so you’ll fall. It’s so He can make you fly.
