A Writer's Guide: Believable CharactersI know a lot of you out there are aspiring-writers (I’m one myself!) and sometimes we get so caught up in this “must publish!” attitude that we get lost in our stories along the way. Sometimes there comes a point when we stare at our half-finished novel and say “I’m stuck. “ Usually these moments happen when we don’t know where we’re going next with our story, and usually that’s because somewhere along the line we’ve strayed off the path and we aren’t quite sure how to get back.DarlingMionette
One of the things that you may find helpful if you’ve never done it before is to take a really in-depth look at your characters and the world they live in. Characters are really the backbone of our stories. You can carry an entire story on the shoulders of a character without much plot (memoirs anyone?), but you can’t carry a plot without some great characters. So, to help you guys out, I wanted to write an article on things you shoul
A Writer's Guide: Naming CharactersWhen it comes to writing novels, names often get overlooked in the grand scheme of things. Most of us are happy if we can tell who is talking and we can remember the character’s names for the entirety of the book, but bad names can ruin a book. I don’t know about you, but when I get a hold of a book where the main character’s name is a comical 20-character tangle I can’t pronounce, it ruins the book for me. It’s hard to take a book, or a character, seriously when you want to roll your eyes every time you read the narrative.DarlingMionette
In this article I’ve compiled a list of things to consider when naming a character for a novel, and though it’s pretty simple, I hope it serves to help someone in their future endeavors to name a character. Most of this is common sense, but it’s often easy to forget these little tidbits of wisdom when you’re busy trying to figure out if your character makes a better Ashley or a Paige.

How to Write Fight Scenes One of the biggest and most frequently asked questions that I get is this: “How do I write fight scenes as good as you do?” I actually got one of those yesterday, but toPoesDaughter
be fair, he changed it up a bit and asked, “How do I keep from being repetitive in my fight scenes?” As I typed out my long-ass answer for him, it occurred to me that this was the perfect topic for my next writing tutorial. So, thank you, random dude on FanFiction.net, for the sudden spark of inspiration.
So, fight scenes:
So much win!
As with nearly every other writing skill an author has in his/her repertoire, writing fights is a skill that takes a lot of practice. Sorry, kids, I know you wanted some gloriously simple answer, but there is none. I can’t just sprinkle magic Street Fighter dust on your head and make you a good writer of fight scenes. If you want to ge
Setting Prices for Your ArtworkThere are few hard and fast rules when it comes to pricing artwork to sell. Why you ask? Well for one there are many variables that go into determining the cost of the artwork. It’s for that very reason that many artists (including myself in the past) sell themselves tremendously short. Another reason we as artists feel our palms getting sweaty when someone asks for a price to an artwork is because we feel as though we’re not being true artists if we accept money for our work. No, no no. Listen, I can tell you from experience that the “starving artist” lifestyle is waaaay less glamorous than it sounds when your pantry is bare for reals. There is absolutely nothing shameful about getting paid for honest work, so don’t try to make yourself feel guilty or ashamed of turning a profit. On the other hand, artists fall into the mire of not even knowing how to price individual artworks. This confusion only gets worse when you look at the price tags iXadrea

Writing: A Simple GuideI do not consider myself a fantastic writer; no, on the contrary, I believe I am just a scale above mediocre. However, I do know that some basic rules I try to follow really have helped me improve in my writing skills, so I figured I might as well share them just for the hell of it. Please - keep in mind that these are all my opinions and I am only trying to help others develop better writing techniques and gain more confidence in their abilities. So, without further ado, let's get to it!PrussianPersephone
Be consistent with your tenses and point of views.
When writing, the two most frequently used tenses are past and present. As for point of views, they include: first person, second person, and third person. It can be extremely easy to accidently slip in and out and tenses and point of views when writing because one's mind tends to wander and can stop paying close attention. For example, in terms of switching between tenses, take this sentence: I take my pencil and wrote a

Levi X Reader – All I want for Christmas
Levi sat in his office doing paperwork as always. The smell of bleach filled his nostrils leaving him content on the snowy day. Every year he dreaded this day. The day he became one year older. Every year it involved Hanji shouting at the top of her lungs as she forced him to eat cake, Erwin casually ignoring his suffering and of course, paperwork. One would think that having your birthday would mean you could be exempt from such an awful, tedious task but no. What made it even worse was that the grumpy corporal just had to be born on Christmas day. This made him dread the day even more because to add to the already awful list of torture he would endure in the coming hours he would have to add cadets whining that they had to train on the holiday, present giving, ridiculous decorations and worst of all, the god awful mess that remained at the end of it all.
Levi shuddered just thinking about it.
“Stupid fucking brats. If they want to
Bullied On Our Friendly Website DAcassylovespink
There was once two authors on a website that wanted to let their opinion out.
But a famous author set to put them out.
She took the flame of these little author’s hearts making them burn from blue to red.
And here’s what she said,
“Your little fire shall be extinguished because I want you to get the Fuck Out!”
The tiny authors wept and cried.
Wondering was it because they picked a side.
Maybe if they had gone with the flow of everyone else
they wouldn't have suffered being a different self?
The small male author thought it was too much to handle and left.
But the dainty female author stayed behind. However,
The light within her grew dimmer and dimmer.
And its glow became barely a shimmer.
Her originality became to be like everything else she owned: plastic.
She wasn't real anymore; just another author following the trends.
All hope was lost.
No one to come save her.
Sadness reigned within her,
making her shallow and pale as Frost.
