2. There is an equal balance of humor and seriousness.
3. You actually learn something from it.
4. The characters are believable.
5. The characters go through a significant change of some sort, whether physical or mental.
6. There is some sort of conflict going on; not all goes well.
7. Good descriptions, vivid but appropriate; the best stories are where the audience has a good idea of what's going on and yet they're still free to use their own imagination.
9. Proper spelling and grammar.
10. Appropriate for intended audience.
Story Writing TipsTip #1: Write about what you know. If you're writing a love story in which the main female character is dumped by her boyfriend, think about what you have been through in your own personal experience, and think about how she might react. Does your character have a strong personality? Are they normally quite likeable? Do they have a weak personality, and they let people push them around? Or do they have a personality that is mysterious, and unpredictable? Once you have established a main character, only you, the author, can predict how they will react to a certain problem.Story Writing Tips6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Tip #2: When beginning a story, and a chapter, it often helps to start the story/chapter in the middle of an action, because then you immediately grasp the reader's attention.
Tip #3: When writing a summary, you might want to include a very short excerpt from your story. That way, you get the reader intrigued. In a real, published book, the first thing that a person sees is the cover, second the title, and third, the

Listen, I know I'm a half-rated author in training. I'm sixteen, what can you expect? But I've read critiques like this, and I decided to make my own, because many tutorials instructed me to give my own advice in order to take it.
This is probably going to be a fairly short tutorial anyways.
Think about how your character speaks. A problem I've actually seen in some young authors' is that they try to sound smart ALL the time--including in their character dialogue. True, some characters such as professors and generally serious people will speak with a certain intelligent ring, but not everyone speaks that way. For example, do you think MOST four year olds use the word concurred? I don't think so. Think about your character, their intellect level, and even how much of it they show through speech, which is a part of characterization. For example, I know people who are very smart who try not to show it through speech because it makes them sound supe
Hetalia sucks1. Every character is a stereotype of their country, and if that wasn't bad enough they're usually incorrect stereotypes as well. I mean if you want to represent an entire nation with an offensive stereotype atleast try and use the correct ones. No sense doing something unless you plan on doing it well.Hetalia sucks3 years ago in Comedy More Like This
2. All Hetalia is essentially, is porn for girls. We can pretend it's a satire on history or country relationships, but that's all it'd be; pretending. The only reason the countries are even there are so that the creator can easily create 20-30 diff't guys for girls to swoon over, and for the english dub a cluster***k of accents. Let's leave Satire to the real Satirists, rather than credit this man as one. Claiming you watch it for the "History" or "Satire" is like a guy claiming he reads Playboy for the articles, even if you do enjoy the articles/satire they ain't the main draw for you. If you girls enjoy your girl porn more power to you, just don't pretend it's a

3. Drawn horrendously
4. I want to hunt the artist down, Shove a history textbook down his throat and punch him in the uterus. No joke.
-----------------------"If you hate it so much don't read it"
-As a History lover and a cartoonist who wants to make historical comics one day, THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE. It's like saying "Ignore that person who's hitting your Friend with a baseball bat". SERIOUSLY. I CANT.
----------------------"It's just a satire chill out"
-Oh no no no no, my dear friends. Satires are meant to be sarcastically witty voices meant to bring upon improvement of the issue being satirized. Sometimes its a bold public statement. Othertimes its an outy. And often then not, are done on Issues within the time frame of the creator. Once you toss in something that must be held delicately and objectively like History (of the PAST no less), and mix it with r
Quick Tips to Child DialogueThese are more like observations in no particular order or consequence (and again, don't apply to every character), but should come in handy with bringing your character to life. Best of luck!Quick Tips to Child Dialogue2 years ago in Writing More Like This
The younger the child, the more intimate the dialogue.
Consider the difference between a five-year-old child calling his mother "Mommy" and a teenager using "Ma" or "Mother".
Nicknames are important.
They also indicate a closeness between characters or an affinity for another character.
Important things are given important names.
There is a good reason that the child's favorite stuffed dinosaur is named Mr.Dino.
Young children tend to use their own terms to describe something if they don't know the proper term.
Until the child learns the proper term for a magazine, it's a "floppy picture book."
Save the bigger words and the more intelligent speech for the older child.
Younger children have a limited vocabulary because their experience is limited. Ther
A Rant of Things and StuffAlright this rant has probably been done countless of times, but I felt like doing it. This rant is targeted towards the weeaboos/fantards of the Hetalia fandom. I run the blog Hetalia Comments on Tumblr and I felt like I should say something based off of the awful submissions I get every day.A Rant of Things and Stuff2 years ago in Scraps More Like This
1. STOP COMMENTING ON THINGS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH HETALIA.
This happens all the time on YouTube. I am watching videos about Minecraft when I look at the comments and realize that there's a Hetalia roleplay going on in the comments. Guess what? If I am watching a video about Minecraft, I DO NOT WANT TO SEE YOUR SMUTTY ROLEPLAY GOING ON IN THE COMMENTS. If you want to see how bad the fandom can get, just look up, "The National Anthem of Prussia" on Youtube.
Also stop fighting over every little thing, if someone tells you to stop commenting on a video that isn't about Hetalia, STOP. STOP ACTING BUTTHURT AND JUST MOVE ON WIT
How to use my bases.I've seen that many people don't know how to use my bases. Well to make it easier on the both of us, let me write a journal all about the basics of base making and using!How to use my bases.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, what is a base?
A base is a stripped picture, normally with no hair,clothing,accessories or extra tid bits. Though some keep some things, like ribbons, or accessories, like scarfs or other things of the sort. Some come with clothing outlines, hair outlines, and other outlines, just in case the user is interested. People use bases to make their own characters. It's very useful for those who can't draw the main body very well, or can't get certain poses right, or what have you. Some people actually draw their bases from scratch, and then post them for use.
Many people criticize base makers and users for "stealing" or not being "original", or "un-talented". However, I think it helps artists, I know my art skills have improved since using bases, and pixel art has even become my main style of art,

Description: Balancing Too Much and Not Enough
Theres an old adage about writing that says, show, dont tell. But what does that actually mean? Surely, were not expected to illustrate our stories, are we? Christ, I hope not. Some of mine are rather long.
No. What that means is that you should use your words to paint a visual picture for the reader. Talking heads are both boring and confusing, and should generally be avoided. If youre unfamiliar with the term, talking heads refers to the phenomenon where all, or most of story is carried out through the characters dialogue. You see it like mad in web and news paper comics, but it happens in prose as well.
The first, and arguably the most fun way to banish the talking heads is to make your characters act. This doesnt mean action, necessarily. The character can do any amount of going from place to place or thing to thing, but so what? Hes still not rea
