Had it looked GOOD, there would have been this nagging feeling that I’d be missing out on something if I stuck to my vow of never again watching another Michael Bay movie. I have fond childhood memories of the Turtles, so I may have weakened. But because it looks like, well, a Michael Bay movie, that feeling simply isn’t there. I have no desire, at all, to pay for or sit through that film.
Transformers 3 was the last chance I was willing to give. I thought “There’s no way it could actually be WORSE than Transformers 2. I’ll give it a shot”.
Somehow…. it was.
That was it. That was the breaking point. No more Bay. EVERYTHING he goes near is pure effluent, and all the evidence you need of how toxic a film Turtles is going to be is in that trailer.
Obviously, we don’t know what the plot is at this point, but it’s a

A common theme, especially in western superhero fiction, is that real heroes do not kill people- or, at the very least, they do their level best to avoid it. Superman, certainly, is portrayed in most popular culture as being against killing, and Batman struggles against nearly impossible odds and still, somehow, manages to almost nev

What the Writers Did RIGHT (Opinion)It’s a well-known fact online that the “Voyager” writers had to make a lot of choices over the show’s seven year run, and it was probably impossible to please everyone. Some were angry that Kes was bumped off and “replaced” by Seven of Nine; some thought “Voyager” overused the Borg; some wish it would’ve had continuing story arcs like “Deep Space Nine.” Re-watching the DVDs, I’ll admit that there are things I wish they had done differently. That being said though, I think the writers deserve more credit that they get, at least in some regards. Comparing the later seasons to the earlier ones, one can see a lot of changes that—in my humble opinion—were for the better.What the Writers Did RIGHT (Opinion)2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Heroic Writing, part 13: Writers' BlockThere are a few names for it: writer’s block, burnout, writer’s fatigue. You sit at your desk and the empty page taunts you. You might have no ideas or an excess of ideas, but, somehow, getting them coherent on the page is impossible. In short, this is the period every writer dreads.Heroic Writing, part 13: Writers' Block2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I do not have any comprehensive, all-inclusive answer regarding how to avoid burnout, nor can I honestly claim to have a universal solution that explains how to break out of it; what I can do is relate my experiences and the tips and tricks others have passed down to me. Hopefully, this helps someone.
A common problem aspiring authors have is coming up with ideas. I’ve been told that I have a fairly fertile imagination, but, in truth, I suffer from the same feelings of malaise and creative inadequacy that anyone feels (with the possible exception of truly egocentric megalomaniacs).

Story Index, part 5 (with other stuff)So before you read the next story index, let me apologize for not responding to notes and comments for a day or so. I had to go to the ER yesterday as I woke up with no hearing in my left ear. At all. After waiting close to four hours they finally saw me and discovered I had an ear infection coupled with impaction (that's a nice way of saying hard wax plugged my ear; never use q-tips kiddies). They got out what they could, but not everything so I still can't hear out of one side of my head (with throws off lots of stuff and makes one generally miserable). I have special drops I am taking 4 times a day so hopefully I'll be back to 100% soon.Story Index, part 5 (with other stuff)10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Heroic Writing, part 10: DialogueOne of the things I constantly have to work at is writing dialogue and conversations. Part of the reason for this is that people in stories do not speak like they do in reality. Another reason is that conversations in stories generally serve to move the plot along or to give further and deeper insight into a character; while conversations in reality may do this as well, it is not the norm. Finally, conversations in fiction tend to be well-spoken, extensions of the author’s grandiloquent vocabulary and ability to choose exactly the right word for any given exchange between characters. Reality, as mentioned, tends to be much messier, but that mess is not usually something people want to read.Heroic Writing, part 10: Dialogue1 month ago in Personal More Like This

Heroic Writing, part 12: Collaborating w/ ArtistsLet’s talk about prettifying your work. There are, of course, a number of ways to do this, ranging from the simple and fairly basic, such as editing what you’ve written for capitalization and punctuation, and scanning the page to make sure your paragraphs flow well and include enough space between them to make them easy to identify and visually distinct, to more advanced methods, such as using different typefaces and justifying the margins based on the needs of your text. Today, however, I’d like to talk about something that few writers give more than a passing thought to; I would like to discuss the inclusion of artwork with and within your narrative.Heroic Writing, part 12: Collaborating w/ Artists3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This

On Characters...I don't consider myself by any means an expert at writing, so look at this journal more as advice for those just getting into the superhero writing genre since I get asked quite a bit for my opinions.On Characters...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
1) Start with a complete concept. What is your hero's name? What powers does he have? What does he look like? You should stop at these three questions and put some considerable time into them. The name is important because it is what everyone is going to call your hero. What he/she looks like is equally important. This is an area where I like to have fun. Designing a costume can be fun even if, like me, you aren't the best artistically. Be descriptive! Let us know what it looks like, what material it's made from and how it fits your hero. Does he/she have any scars? What color is their hair and eyes? A great description can go a long way, especially if you later commission an artist to capture their likeness. Finally there are powers. It's easy when part of a community like AF to simply t
Heroic Writing, part 8: Meaningful ConflictsStories are about conflict. I’ve said that before and, undoubtedly, will say it again. The thing is, not all conflicts are created equal. Bearing that in mind, an author needs to understand what makes a conflict worthy- and, by extension, what makes a conflict trite, overused, or dull.Heroic Writing, part 8: Meaningful Conflicts2 months ago in Personal More Like This
The first important thing to realize is that a conflict must be challenging. The Hulk being attacked by a knife-wielding thug is not challenged; the Hulk defending Betty Ross when she is attacked by the same knife-wielding thug, on the other hand, is. The reason is simple: when the thug attacks the Hulk directly, there is no possibility that the Hulk will be defeated. When the thug attacks Betty Ross, however, there is a very real possibility that the Hulk will fail to save her.
This, then, is the essence of what makes a challenge interesting: there must be a perceptible possibility of failure. The converse, that there must also be a po

Heroic Writing, part 2- Character Biographies IIn the first installment, I discussed the fundamental questions that every author should be able to answer before putting pen to paper. I want to reiterate that this is by no means a hard-and-fast set of rules, and failure to comply will not, in fact, get you shot, execution-style, in the back of your head as you pound away at your keyboard. That said, they are still good questions and answering them gives us a good jumping-off point to explore one of the more fundamental aspects of our shared world-building within :iconAngel-FallsDA:.Heroic Writing, part 2- Character Biographies I3 months ago in Personal More Like This
The first of the questions is What are you writing? In this case, the answer is simple: you are writing a biography- a piece of literature (defined in this case as a part of the writings that are concerned with Angel Falls and not necessarily a work of permanence or lasting significance) that will help to familiarize readers with your character.

Heroic Writing, part 15: BalanceOne of the things I hear people complain about a lot is that they have trouble getting other people to take an interest in collaborating with them and using their characters. Now, part of that has to do with how long and how difficult it is for an author to gain a substantial amount of favorable press on what is, essentially, a website designed for the graphic arts; I’ll deal with that aspect in a forthcoming post, but not today. What I’d like to focus on today is the concept of character balance.Heroic Writing, part 15: Balance2 days ago in Personal More Like This
Balance is a word that gets tossed around quite a bit, but the reality is that there are a number of different interpretations of the word. At one level, balance simply means making a character that has useful abilities that aren’t too overwhelming and then rounding the character out with exploitable limitations and weaknesses that aren’t too crippling. At a more general level, balance refers to making a character that is of a similar ability le
