(This is not my words)
1. Consider all of the options. Not everyone can create a blockbuster novel. Anyone with passion might be able to earn a living from writing. Copy-writing is probably the highest paid skill on the Internet. Article writing is in great demand for providing content for websites. Creative writers are in demand to bid for projects every day. So the first step in how to become a writer is to research all of the options.
2. Plan using logic and desire. Write the way you want, but decide whether or not you want to rely on the income from your writing. Not having a regular job will allow you to focus on your writing, but it's very unlikely that you'll be able to depend on it for at least a few years.Then you might get bored.
3. Think about what you want to write, instead of what you want to get from writing. You won't get anywhere if all you're after is money.
4. Be prepared to work odd hours -- y

What Is Fan Fiction?
Everyday, we are inspired by movies, television, novels, and other forms of media. They engage our minds with a variety of stories and characters, their plights and triumphs, their everyday minutiae. Fan fiction authors are so enamored with these other worlds and their inhabitants that they must partake in the stories which have brought them so much enjoyment. They expand on the current universe, explain gaps in the narrative and delve into characters' motivations.
A good fan fiction (or fanfic) is more than simple borrowing another writer's characters and universe. The fan fiction author must immerse his or her readers in the story, make them believe it is a natural extension of the source material. Characters have their own mannerisms and quirks; each universe has its own history and rules that need to be followed. The fan fiction author must master the nuances of those characters and the world they inhabit (unless purposely writi

they really haven't been getting any feedback on their work, and were wondering how to get remedy this.
After giving it some thought, here's a quick "How to get comments" tutorial, pertaining to you authors out there.
Get comments on your writing!!
Many visual artists will tell you that finding that niche of followers who consistently comment on your work is hard. You either have to be in a fandom, and post up lots of fan art, have a kick ass style, or promote yourself till your fingers bleed. Writers, on the other hand, don't have that visual one up. Someone can't just look at the words on your page and go, THIS is the author I've been looking for! They have to take time out of their day to really read your work, and if you've got more than one ch

Old News: Korra Season 1 DVD trailerA trailer has surfaced online for a previously unannounced Legend of Korra DVD, making it likely that Nickelodeon does in fact have plans to release the series in that format. 16 days ago this trailer was posted on youtube. This trailer does seem like an official Nickelodeon production – note the end title, peppered with copyrights for Nickelodeon and Viacom – so despite of the current lack of official confirmation, it seems reasonable to be cautiously optimistic.Old News: Korra Season 1 DVD trailer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, the trailer does not specify a date or even a season for the release, instead employing that tantalizing assurance that the DVD will be “coming soon.” No mention is made either of special features or commentaries, though extras like these were always included on the official DVDs for Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Still, If nothing else, this trailer does make us nostalgic for the wonderful whirlwind that was season 1, and gives us the opportunity to look forward with fresh eyes as to what

Sorry it took so long for me to post this, but as I've explained on my Tumblr, I'm not the best graphic designer, so it takes me a long time to complete these kinds of images. I just didn't want to post a Cast Announcement if I couldn't dedicate my full attention to it. These actors have given me their best and they deserve the same from me.
Thanks to everybody who submitted their auditions! I had a blast listening to you guys and lemme tell ya, there were a good few of you who made it incredibly difficult for me to make the casting decisions. You were all lovely!
And lastly, a HUGE shoutout to the actors who were cast. You all have been so kind, generous, gracious and professional. It's a pleasure working with you! Thank you so much for your hard work!

How to: Have a Healthy Relationship with your ArtThere are artists of all kinds - the type that think that they'll never be good as (insert popular artist here) or the ones that are perfectly content with their style despite the obvious anatomical imperfections that they constantly get critiqued on. There are those who are 'too lazy' to correct blatant errors and there are those who beat themselves vigorously for shading that one area wrong. I notice this a lot and it upsets me how hard people can be on themselves or how much one refuses to ever try to experiment or improve. So I'm here to help by giving you little tidbits of advice how to improve and become more confident with your artwork!

1. Accept the fact there are areas you can improve in. - Whether it's coloring, shading, lining, or even just simple anatomy - there probably IS an area that you need improvement in. Take time to look at your work - what you're most proud of. Ask yourself what's working in the image and what isn't - then store that

Aro’kai is a AMORPG (Artistic Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game) where the users are encouraged to explore the vast, seamless world in which several major species thrive. It is a free-roam game where users will be able to interact with NPCs to unlock hidden terrain and talk amongst fellow players. Aro’kai allows players to slip into a world vastly different from our own and experience unique terrain and obstacles through the eyes of their animal avatar.

Writer's Tip: All About POVPoint of View. It can change everything. In the most literal sense, POV is the decision of who is narrating your novel, and what they see. POV also refers to the individual viewpoint of your characters, and ultimately, your readers. So where do you start? Well, that’s why I’ve written this article. We will explore the three standard POV options available to every writer, their advantages, disadvantages, and how to choose which one is best for you. Let’s get started.Writer's Tip: All About POV1 year ago in Writing More Like This
First Person POV
I stepped into the room on hesitant feet. Leander, the great Lion King of the river valley lay half-in-shadow at the back corner of the room, his tawny paws illuminated by a shaft of light filtering in through the high windows. His sable tail thumped once, twice, in the haze of dust motes, and my breath caught in my chest. I shouldn’t be here.
First person POV is denoted by the use of “I”, “My”, “Me”, “Mine

Let's use this day to spread awareness for the bear of the arctic through art!.
A Bit About the Polar Bear
The Polar Bear is a bear of the arctic and only lives largely in the arctic circle.
This bear is the largest carnivore and largest species of bear.
The bears diet consists mainly of ringed seal.
Polar bear fur contains no pigment. The white is seen through the scattering and reflecting of light, much like snow or ice.
A Polar bear's skin is black, causing them to overheat when running for long periods of time.
A male bear is called a boar, while a female is called a sow.
Polar bears can swim for several hours at a time
Polar bears can run up to a surprising 25 miles per hour

Alright... I am Kale, and I am a naga. (Isn't very sociable at first meetings. )
I heard that you know a person called Natalee Grande. Is this correct?
Why, yes... *smirks* Indeed, I do.
How well you know her? I mean, do you share your secrets or something? Or are you just random mates? Tell us about your relationship.
We are mates and I have known her for as long as I could remember.... I believe it was many months ago, and let me tell you that it was not a pleasant experience for her during our first encounter. We often do a lot of things together like explore, watch Agatha's magic tricks, eat... mostly done by me. =u= That's nice. Would you like some coffee or tea?
Hmmm... I don't know. Perhaps some raspberry tea? (Oh, Kale. With that English accent you sound like a real Brit asking for tea. XD)

I... don't think she would mind, actually.

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)1 year 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.
