How to Write a Story: A Guide by KitaWriting a StoryHow to Write a Story: A Guide by Kita5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello guys! Kita-Angel here again with even more stuff! Today I will be taking the time to make an article about story writing, really the key points, what they are, how you can improve on them and what a story really is, like what brings it all together.
There is going to be a LOT of key stuff here, and it is going to sound like English class in high school all over again. Hooray! But this is valuable stuff, so pay attention. It is definitely worth it!
This guide was written with the intention to help those who lack any experience at all with story writing to know what is required to make a story. After this we can maybe start looking into how to improve what you have worked on!
What Makes a Story

Generally, in a story you have an Int

Hacker found on Twitter!!!Hey guys I've managed to track the hacker that's been terrorizing DeviantArt down on Twitter, from what I've seen he's stolen over more than 2000 accounts here and is currently stealing more and more. What's worse is he's aiming to shut down dA and his next target seems to be Tumblr, he's also set up an anti-aspergers campaign. I won't let him get away with this, I'll be keeping watch of this hacker for a while monitoring his tweets and I'll keep you guys postedHacker found on Twitter!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
His way of stealing others accounts is he set up a false website that SUPPOSEDLY lead you to the dA login, but in actual fact it was a phony page so that he could steal people's usernames and passwords. I'll do what I can to keep you guys updated but it won't be enough on it's own so you need to spread the word to as many Deviants as possible cause they to might be in danger from this hacker. Also if you have a tumblr account then warn as many as possible there and encourage them to spread the warning as well so they c

Is the new face of troll art theft. My story may shed a bit of light on the subject, so please read carefully before you go and spam her pages.
This was only brought to our attention a few days a go whilst looking through my comments I stumbled on hers telling me that she had taken some of my work and featured it on her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HavingAnObsessivePersonality
I shook my head in disagreement, "Why are people always taking before asking?...and why are they placing others art work in other sites without first consulting them?!" Is something I will always have in mind to say either out loud or to myself..
R.I.P VeraI just found out that the most kind and caring lady in the world passed away last night, so I thought I'd write a journal for her.R.I.P Vera4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Honestly, if angels were real this would have been one of them. Why should an angel die so soon? We all saw this coming, but it's still too soon..
When I was very young, my mother brought me from Florida to England with nothing. We had no family to help and she was a young, single mother (who's mother had just committed suicide) with a 3 year old child. I don't know how she would have done if of Vera hadn't come along.
She was the closest thing I had to a grandma when I was little, and her place was like my second home. I shared many great memories in her house along with Holly, Celine, and a few other childhood friends that she would take care of as if they were family (and some of them were). Over the years Vera helped me grow, disciplined me, and taught me many things that I'll always carry with me.
At her house everything was magical; with intric

20 WRITING COMPLAINTS1.) Trying to get into N's mind is difficult20 WRITING COMPLAINTS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2.) Keeping Bianca in-character is also surprisingly difficult
3.) Actually, a lot of characters are hard to write
5.) Why can't I come up with decent AUs?
6.) I hate having ideas that I can't go anywhere with.
7.) Meaning, those ideas wouldn't even make sense as a drabble.
8.) Screw context.
9.) Those ideas that just bounce around in my head but the second I try to put into words, they won't cooperate
10.) Those ideas that seem so amazing, up until your write them, then they seem stupid.
11.) Wanting to use certain characters but not being able to come up with a scenario.
12.) Obscure ships. It's so hard to find anything that I can look at or such to figure out how they should act around each other and such.
13.) HESPERIA. FUCKING. SHIPPING.
14.) Half-finished crap still sitting in my notebook...
15.) So many series, so little ability to pull off continuation.
16.) Having things that I SHOULD be writing but just. can't

A CLUB COLLAB TOGETHER, FOR A CLUB ID
All you gotta do is pick a Starter Pokemon bellow that hasn't been picked yet and draw it, flat color only with a white background or if you can do transparent that be nice to.
So whom wants to draw which Pokemon for this?
1.) Gotta be flat color drawn on the computer
2.) no shading, if there is shading I will have to ask you to remove it or draw another one without shading.. flat color means no shading just the drawing and color.
3.) if no one is picking any of the others your welcome to draw them until they are all drawn.
4.) have fun.

As we enter another year of OCTS and adventures here on deviantart, let's take a time to read and review!
Disclaimer: this is not a personal attack against any OCT's, oct admins, or conduct of oct admin teams in general. These are observations, thoughts, and tips that I felt should be taken into consideration when one decides they want to run an OCT in hopes that it makes things a little easier for people.
Like I said above, this is not a personal attack against any OCT admin team or OCT in general. Every oct is different, someone doing things differently from the norm is not bad. These are all merely tools and guidelines meant to help. I've heard about personal attacks being made using both my posts about OCT's as a way of bullying and pushing around the admins of other Tournament groups, and I do not condone it in t
