PE Prose Basics: Pacing ( and Show vs. Tell)Hello, everyone! As you all know, this week over at projecteducate is Prose Basics. We're here to help all you prose writers (whether flash fiction, short stories, or novels) get better at your craft with some basic tips for growth. Today, I'm going to be talking about something you've probably heard about again and again: pacing.PE Prose Basics: Pacing ( and Show vs. Tell)2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
What is Pacing?
No, it's not what you do when you're stuck on a scene and need to get up and stretch those leg muscles to get your writing juices flowing. It's actually a very important ability that writers have to control the speed their story is read. You as the author get to manipulate the reader in a way and make the speed of the story match the scene. What better way to drop the reader right into the moment? But, pacing also holds the ability to make or break your story and keep or lose your reader's interest. This is why it's so important in writing.

Mega Man Tribute gets a MEGA thumbs up!Mega Man Tribute gets a MEGA thumbs up!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
A friend of UDON recently passed on a copy of our MEGA MAN TRIBUTE art book to video game designer AK, who had some great things to say about the book. For those who haven't heard of AK, he played a vital role in the original creation of Mega Man's world and systems, working on the game even before Keiji Inafune joined the project.
AK has graciously give us permission to pass his comments to the artists and fans of the book, which is a real treat as he has very rarely given public comments or done any press at all. The UDON crew is proud to share these accolades with all the great artists in Mega Man Tribute:

To The ''Fake Friends'' Journals I Keep Seeing......It doesn't matter whether you post them or not. I'm a bit annoyed when they pop up in my messages box because they spread like wildfire. I won't bother reposting them in the future, because you're all wonderful people whose friendship or interaction with me doesn't depend on whether you watch me or not. That's silly for the journal to think that in order to be friends on DA, you have to be watching each other. (Even though I'm 99% sure the people posting the journal don't take it seriously.)To The ''Fake Friends'' Journals I Keep Seeing...9 months ago in Personal More Like This
So please, refrain from spreading the journal around because you can't be a "fake friend" if you're a real person.
Instead, simply give a greeting to your friends or ask how they're doing.
Common Cliches in Manga Authors MakeThis is an exercise for myself to improve my own writing skills via identifying pitfalls and mistakes other authors make when attempting their own stories. These are the most common offenders. Other suggestions are appreciated.Common Cliches in Manga Authors Make2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
If they're not the main cast, they are congress level retarded. The author especially makes the "baddies" as incredibly dumb and incompetent as possible. The author thinks this makes the protags look like badass heroes when in reality it just makes them look no tougher than your average school yard bully.
General Plot Stupidity
The author never seems to put themselves in the shoes of characters or do any research on organizations in general. So you end up things like milita

An incredibly cool guy who creates graphics and animations for Jesse Cox from OMFGCata. I even made some fan art of his animations! He isn't too active on dA but that's exactly why you should give him some love and make him post more!
One of the most adorable and talented artists I've recently stumbled upon. I fell in love with her art and immediately commissioned two illustrations from her! A lot of you might know her from her Nightvale fanarts, but her gallery has much more tasty stuff that might interest you.

An update on Sara AKA GloryAngelA few years ago, strangers and friends on DeviantART were a huge help in raising some money for my pal :icongloryangel: who was in a car accident that left her paralyzed but still able to feel her body - a condition known as locked-in syndrome. With help from DA we were able to raise thousands of dollars for Sara so that her mom could buy her a computer which she controls with her eyes in order to 'talk' to her caregivers and friends.An update on Sara AKA GloryAngel4 years ago in Personal More Like This

★ Insanity or Mental Disorders::
► Tibumeru already have enough mental issues with just being a fish, they don't need anymore. "Insane" is not a personality. It's more of a condition. If your character is just a little on the more excitable side, say excitable rather than crazy or insane. We do not allow mental disorders ! Tibumeru are already severely mentally handicapped, they don't need schizophrenia or a bi-polar disorder !

Rockman X / Rockman EXE plunnyRockman X / Rockman EXE crossoverRockman X / Rockman EXE plunny3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When Rockman X is killed -- not in the the midst of battle, but instead executed by flawed human laws and petty technicalities -- the foundation of the Maverick Hunters are shaken to the core. As the world hopes for a miracle, a name surfaces: "Hikari"
'Kay, so this is one of those bunnies that keep coming back and it's been... gosh, about a decade since it was first born.
It's based on Lord Yellowtail's "The Just and the Law" and it's sequel "Legacy" (which was never completed), but the gist of the story is that X is given a choice between:
a) defending human civilians against a psychopathic human opponent wearing military grade ride armour or
b) standing aside, knowing that if he were to harm a human (even in self-defense or the defense of others), he would be executed under (the flawed) criminal law.
So, you guess how that went.
And it was pretty heartbreaking.

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
