Okay, so writing. Something you are interested in? Well,
lets get to grips with just some of the basics of great writing. These tips
will transform your attitude from "How can I fill this page?" into "How can
I fill this page with good quality writing?"
Part One: Initial Idea
Why is it that finding an idea can be so hard?
Why does everyone else have the power to come up with amazing ideas, and what
are you left with? Nothing... Well, to you, that may be what it seems
like, but I'm sure if you dig deep enough, you don't really lack in
ideas, you just have a hard time bringing them to the surface. Here
are some ways to bring out that buried inspiration:
Base some ideas on real life events
Its probably the easiest way to write, you may have experienced what you are
writing about, this helps the mind describe the situation, it also makes it
sound much more realistic.
Use inspiration from other pieces of writing
Soaring with the Rainbows Chapter 5Soaring with the Rainbows Chapter 54 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The pink earth pony, Pinkie Pie (somewhere in all her blather Soarin had caught her name), led, or rather, dragged Rainbow and Soarin through Ponyville. From what he could see of the town, it was remarkably undamaged considering the dragon assault. He could see a few ponies patching up tiles or sweeping away debris, but all of the big, heavy duty damage had been cleared up. This was strange, considering it was only a day after the dragon's disappearance.
Pinkie Pie let go of his arm, and Soarin stood up, massaging his poor limb. The building which she had plopped them in front was a tree, with a book sign pointing out its use as a library. Resisting Pinkie's attempts to shove him through the front door, Soarin waited until Rainbow was upright again before moving into the tree.
Inside was just about what he'd thought it would be like. Same as any library, books everywhere, and a couple of ponies wandering about. Soarin thought he recognised everypony, all five of Rainbow's friends were

His dreams were pretty normal, for once. There were no more mysterious calls of destiny or stained glass platforms - a welcome change. For the most part, his dreams were harmless nonsense, formed from worries about the previous day and whatever random stuff his subconscious could throw at him.
Eventually, his dreams condensed into something plausible; he found himself playing basketball - or was it volleyball? - with his friends. On his team were Kairi and Riku - but also Donald and Goofy. How he missed them! A pity they had to go back to Disney Castle so soon.
The opposing team were the kids from Twilight Town: Hayner, Olette, Pence, Vivi, and... Sefier?
Rai and Fui cheered from the sidelines. "He's gonna beat you all, y'know?" "Slam dunk."
Well, dreams weren't supposed to make sense, anyway.

Why? Why did I have to answer that ad? I was so immersed in the benefits of the super-vitamin that I forgot to read the fine print. If it wasn't for that stupid MetaboAnthro, I would still be normal. Life would have been just fine if I hadn't answered that stupid ad! Then again, my life right now isn't as bad as I had hoped. This school is the perfect place for people like me...
Whoa now! I'm spoiling the ending, aren't I? I'd probably better slow down and start from the beginning where it all went wrong. It all started when I was reading the local paper...

It started innocently enough, one fine morning in the Pokemon country. The sun rose high, almost grinning as Trainers and their Pokemon went about their daily lives. Trading, battling, journeying...
However, there was something else that was smiling at the sight below, as he hovered high above Hoenn. Draped in black robes and holding what looked like a scythe, the figure mumbled and chuckled to himself in anticipation
"Ahh... Such a peaceful day." the figure grinned as his gaze looked towards a small town situated at the foot of Mt. Chimney. "So calm, so serene... so boring." Raising his scythe, he flew off towards the town. "Let's have some fun!"

The Titans stared at the huge factory in front of them. It seemed to be abondoned, several stories high, and slightly rusted walls. A bridge connected the factory's little island to the city. Halfway down the bridge, a kid seeming to be 13 years old, waited for them. He wore a light blue turtleneck sweater with khaki capris as well as blue shoes and round black rimmed glasses. He had light blonde hair that was cut short. He seemed to be as tall as Beastboy.
"Hi. I'm Jeremie Belpois." He said with a welcoming smile. "I talked with your friend earlier..." he nodded towards Cyborg, who was carrying the unconcious Raven in his arms. "If you'd come in, you can meet the others as I explain everything."
"But... I thought this place was abandoned..." Said Robin, waving a hand in the factory's direction.
"Well... yes... and no... depending on who you ask. Truthfully, it is abandoned, but my friends and I know otherwise... c'mon in..."

It had been three weeks since she had left Unova with N. Touko sat on her bed, staring down at the small device in her hand -- her Xtransceiver. Though she still wore it every day, the batteries had long been taken out to keep people that might be searching for her from calling. At the moment she was seriously considering putting them back in. What was she thinking? She couldn't possibly contact anyone from her home town, no matter how much she missed them. If she did that, then they would surely insist on her returning home. Were Cheren and Bianca still angry at her? She hadn't exactly been on good terms with either of them before she left.
Beloved lay next to her with his head resting on her leg. She gave him a pat on the head. "What should I do?" Touko asked him.

Link and Ruto are very good friends and love each other a lot. But they also equally hate Zelda Princess of Hyrule quite a bit. Link hates her not only she is a spoiled brat, but also she has a bit dislike that Link loves Ruto and not her at all. Ruto has troubles with Zelda as well. Zelda always rudely called names on Ruto like Fish Girl and other names like that, and also thinks she should not love Link because she is a Zora, not a human.
They both are at their ends of being annoyed by the stupid princess! Zelda only makes the couple's lives very miserable most of the time. What they needed was a plan to shut up Zelda for good. If only Zelda was a Zora like you, than that would teach her a lesson! said Link. Ruto was with Link and heard his idea while they complained about the spoiled princess. Link, that's brilliant!

Zelda lets out a sigh before turning to Telma, I guess you're right, I just cant shake the feeling that we might be sailing into a war.

Amaterasu doesnt listen to him as she takes a step forward, her thoughts set on helping Link. She looks up at Orochi who nods his head.

Looking up, Misty saw her old enemies, the Invincible Brothers, sneering at her. Ever since she made fools of them as payback for trying to sabotage her position as Gym Leader, they've been itching for revenge. "I told you once, and I'll tell you again: STAY OUT OF MY GYM!"

When Amaterasu opens her eyes, she was back in Kusa village. This small village lived on a mountainside with bamboo growing everywhere. There was a tall windmill that sits high above the village over a sacred shrine; the entrance is in a cave. Amaterasu takes in the familiar sights and smells of the village. When she was last here she saved the village from the Crimson Helm, a monster created from Orochis blood. She knew that if Orochi has truly returned than she must retrieve the Serpent Crystal in order to enter Orochis lair, again. As Issun looks around, he too recognizes Kusa Village. Ammy! Why are we here? What is the meaning of this?
Amaterasu simply shook herself and ran off in the direction of the windmill. Ignoring Issuns complaints, she ran past the home of Princess Fuse. Amaterasu did not want her help. She might get hurt. Amaterasu rushes up the steps and into the shrine. Backtracking to the area where the Crimson helm s

Malon had the teach were how to put on a Bra which for some reason felt not to bad on Link and to have her wear panties. The Blue Tunic needed to be tailored to fit Link.
The Tunic now fits Link and Malon wanted a cute skirt to go on the Tunic. Link did not like the idea, but got use to it and it looked pretty cute on her. Malon also had Link try on dresses and Link was not in the mood to do so, but she should learn this, especially for formal occasions. Also Malon taught Link have to put on Make-Up and Link did not care much for that since she thinks she looks good enough without it. So Link pretty much was having a hard time learning all this new girl stuff.
