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
Ten Commandments of Writing1. Have an original plot.Ten Commandments of Writing4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
If every book was the same, we'd get bored with them pretty quick. Variety is what gives that special spice. Try to come up with a story that's entirely your own. If your work is based off another work, however loosely, make sure you use your own style. Don't just repeat what someone else has already written. Nobody likes a copycat, and you could face an unpleasant lawsuit that way.
2. Have a good title.
If you want people to read your book, you'll need a title that will catch their eye. Make it exciting, but keep it brief, too. Don't make your title so long that it wears the reader down. Try to stay within the limit of ten words. If you have trouble inventing a title, go through your story and decide what the main theme is, what it is in that story that really stands out.
3. Make your characters as believable as possible.
The characters are what make the story a story. You learn about them, sympathize with them, and hate them.

Two Women, One Hulk
The Realm of Asgard
Thor was now leaving Asgard after visiting his father Odin, who wished to speak with him regarding the mortals that helped saved the nine realms from destruction at the hands of Loki. The conversation between Odin and Thor, like most of their discussions, was very brief and left the Thunder God wondering, for it seemed like Odin knew something that nobody else did and was intentionally hiding it. Thor could only begin to guess what his father was hiding, but whatever it was, it was something that was not meant to be revealed to anyone at this particular point of time.
He could only hope that whenever this secret was, it would be revealed to him and his fellow Avengers before it is too late. Thor continued to walk through the halls, his mind deep in thought regarding his conversation with Odin, and thus did not seem to notice the sound of approaching footsteps. It was only when this particular person announced her presen

Paneling is a part of Graphic design. O_- It's an art in itself, think of how you would do a collage and put together a puzzle, that's how paneling works.
You must understand the basic 2D design element:
movement, center of interest, value contrast, volume, size, perspective.... so on and on....
As for paneling.... there is no set way to do it, whether drawing the picture first, or draw the panel's first, or draw the panels and the pictures back and forth.... it's all upto the artist, as long as the result is satisfying to the artist. Just experiement and find the best way that suits you.
1. Panels must support your content: That's the most important thing.... if one line is going over an important character's head shot, omit that line and let the character stand out~ If one frame is more important than the other, you wish to make it a focus on the page, make that frame larger than the others, sometimes it can even overlap other panels alittle. However, being overly complicated

I had managed to book a flight for early the next morning, around 8:30am. I hated planes and airports, too crowded and noisy, it made my heard hurt, but I've know from past experiences that you want it to appear that you are home by keeping the car out front. Stops any curious wonderers, so driving was out of the question.
Jakey agreed to look after Hank and Spiderius for me as well as pick me up from the airport. He was probably the only friend who knew about my marks. He found out by accident and I thought I'd have to fear for my life, but he said he would never judge someone for how they were born, promising to help me whenever he could. Been part of my survival ever since.
I looked up from my hands to the board with all the flights on. The flight had been delayed for thirty minutes. Trust my luck.
Moving one of my hands up to rest on my head, I closed my eyes and sighed. I didn't need to see that the airport was gett

After saying good night to them he jumped into his bed without changing out of his clothes, and fell into a deep sleep.
Lewis woke up to a strange sound, it sounded like hissing? "look out!" someone shouted. He felt someone push him. "BOOM!"
Lewis slowly opened his eyes to see he was outside for some weird reason." What the bloody hell!?" he soon saw the hole in the ground next to him.
"Are you ok?" the person that just saved his life said. "y-yeah I think I am" Lewis said and he turned to the person that just saved his life.
"H-honeydew!?" Lewis said in surprise. "No it's me Simon!" Simon said as he got up, slightly injured, while he dusted himself off.

I was already confused with my sexuality and now Cry tells me he loves me. I haven't even told Marzia yet. I'm a mess. I haven't even been a good boyfriend. The last time I took Marzia out was over a month ago. I heard a knock on the door,
"Felix? Can I come in?" It was Marzia.
"Yeah sure," I say without even glancing at the door.
"Is everything okay? You seem to have been acting differently lately..."
I was editing the video that me and Cry recorded. I acted like nothing was wrong, "Yes, everything's fine Marzia."
"Felix, you're not even looking at me in the eye," Marzia said sternly.
I slowly took my eyes away from my computer and looked at her. She's still as beautiful as ever with her flowing chestnut coloured hair.
"Did I do something wrong? Do you not want to be in a relationship anymore?"
"No, no! Marzia, it's not you. It's just that I've been dealing with a lot of things lately."
"Felix," she stepped closer to me, "tell me the truth. Are you seeing someone."

I walked back to the living room and leaned against the door frame. I saw Cry sitting on the couch, trying to hide his blushed cheeks with his mask. But I've already seen them. I grinned and thought: 'His cheeks are red like tomatoes. But why? Is it because of what I've said before?' He pushed his mask up and down his face trying to hide as much as he could. I murmured to myself: "Why does he still wear that mask? I want to see what he's trying to hide. But I want to respect his privacy too... uh... god damn." Then all of sudden he noticed me. I could see embarrassment in his eyes.
I walked up to him, thinking: 'Fuck it. I want to see his face. Now!" I stood right in front of him and said: "Cry? Why do you still wear that mask? I'm your best friend. I think I should be allowed to see your face. I'm sure you're hiding it for no big reason."
I could see that he was trembling now. He turned away his face and stared to the ground. I lifted his chin a little so he wa

Now that it was official you didn't know what you would do. You had to tell Slendy but who knows how he would react. Then there was Jeff. The bastard had gotten you pregnant but that didn't mean he wasn't going to be a good father. He killed people for a living just like you so he probably wouldn't have time for his own son.

Who's voice is that? Where am I??
Jeff gasped as his sight quickly returned to him. He looked around frantically, trying to figure out where he was. He knew he was in a house, but he didn't know where. Or how he got on someone's couch. It was...oddly familiar to him.

The sudden voice startled Jeff. He looked next to him and was shocked to see someone sitting on a table. The boy smiled.
"You had me worried there, Jeff."

"All right!" he responded cheerfully as he came over to them. One of them shifted over a seat so he could sit in the middle of the group. Felix unzipped his small bag and took out a small plastic-wrapped sandwich. He took a bite as he listened to their conversation.
