Default Looking at a blank page. - 03-18-2016, 02:44 PM

You are experiencing what, I believe, is called the blank page syndrome. This is a very difficult situation to overcome as it requires a person to think creativily and I have found that people will in general fight this with an amazing amount of energy.
Even though I don't know the requirements for your project I do have the following suggestions.
  1. Open Alice and do somehing! Anything no matterr how irrealivant will get you started.
  2. Break the problem down. Do you need a loop? if so what type?
  3. Go back to the book, what was it talking about at this point in your course?
  4. If you are not sure how something works, use print statements to see how things are changing
  5. I am guessing you need to make a string that changes as the program runs so look at the.string functions under world functions.
  6. find out how to change the text in a 3D text objec.
  7. Put it all together.
  8. If you find you have been sitting there for five minutes and still have no idea what to do next, DO SOMETHING!
Hope this helps get you going
