As someone of similar height, I’ve been told to go for the joints. Doesn’t matter how big they are or how small you are, joints are pretty fragile. (And so are eyeballs.)
Very true, and helpful… just as long as one is keeping a clear head (noooot something I’m very good at when I’m mad, admittedly). I’ve also found my weight to actually be a bit of an advantage. I’m heavy enough that I can be pretty hard to shift if I can get someone on the ground — something I’ve been forced to make use of once or twice at work. Aided (again) by no one really expecting me to start getting physical when I’m crying.
I think we can thank my father for my habit of reacting to people hurting my friends by wanting to do violence. He always taught me to (literally) never back down from a fight…
Which is all well and good when you’re 6’4” and look like Bigfoot’s second cousin. Served him well during his stint as bouncer at a strip club. Not so much when you’re 5’3” in shoes and tend to cry when you get mad. Not that this hasn’t occasionally served me well, over the years. People don’t seem to expect me to start biting at the nearest bit of exposed flesh when I’m bawling.

Another photomanip commission done, this one for a traditonal Wolfman style werewolf.
Below it is the original stock photo - I replaces the eyes and ears entirely. The nose was morphed between the man’s and a dog’s, and I did some proportional changes to the face (making the nose & mouth larger, the eyes smaller and further apart, the forehead lower), and then added in a bunch of hair. Fun fact: no wolves were used. The hair comes from photos of a bear and a chimp.
WHENEVER YOU SEE THIS POST ON YOUR DASH, STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND WRITE ONE SENTENCE FOR YOUR CURRENT PROJECT.
Just one sentence. Stop blogging for one minute and write a single sentence. It could be dialogue, it could be a nice description of scenery, it could be a metaphor, I don’t care. The point is, do it. Then, when you finish, you can get back to blogging.
If this gets viral, you might just have your novel finished by next Tuesday.
