What should I draw ideas?

-Do your ideas have to be different than those the characters are already doing?

-Have your thoughts of things changed since you wrote them?

-It is usually good to have more than one theme so you can use what works and what doesn’t.

I think the more I think about this idea, the more I come up with an original idea for a new concept.

A map of the United States and its surrounding areas using a digital satellite imagery format is available from the Digital Sky Survey. The map covers the entire United States. It has been downloaded thousands of times, and is still used by geographers to help them understand the history of U.S. society.

The text of the Federal Communications Commission’s Order of October 2, 1978, is available on the Library of Congress website. Note that the text only applies to the order that has been published in the Federal Register in PDF format, not to the original federal law. If you would like to see the text in its traditional print format, you can download a copy of the Federal Register text from the Library of Congress website.
