On: WritingGood morning, afternoon, or evening, as appropriate. The guide contains advice on various aspects of writing in brief, with examples for each. I’ve divided up each aspect of writing into one of four categories: rules, guidelines, matters of style, and matters of plot and characterization. Hopefully this guide will be helpful to you in one way or another.On: Writing3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are virtually no ironclad rules in writing; these aspects of writing come close, however. Even in dialogue or internal monologue, which is normally a space where the writer is free to do as they please, misspelled words are problematic. As such, it is important to master these aspects of writing, and do so early in your time as a writer.
Spelling. It’s always jarring to encounter a spelling mistake in the middle of an otherwise well-written story. Because some spelling mistakes will not be caught by a typical spell checker, and because you should be editing your story anyway, it is a good idea to p

crazynoggin : How to NOT stammer like an idiot?
You can sing out your words, turn your everyday life into a musical. I learnt it from The King's Speech. However you would get weird looks from people.
AmythestDiamond : How do you approach a guy that you like?
Well, you can start by walking up to the guy. And then... wait a minute, you did it! You actually approached him!
BijouBlue : How to handle a "Love At First Sight" moment?
That is too cute! What you need to do is, hold on to your kokoro. While your kokoro doki doki, senpai will then noticed you. Oh and you will also turn japanese for some reason.
Alloci : I suck at writing romance, How do I play up the drama?
Are you writing a play..? Sorry a little confused.
If you picked 'Dont Swap' you are wrongI am afraid if you picked 'Don't Swap' on the last journal/poll then you picked the wrong answer. In this situation you should ALWAYS SWAP. I can understand why you would think it wouldnt make a difference, but the truth is, it does. If you missed the question, Here's the question again:If you picked 'Dont Swap' you are wrong3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You are on Ry's Game Show, there are three doors, Door A, B and C. One has a bag of cash, two has peanuts, now Im the only one who knows which door the money lies. So I ask you to pick a door, you pointed at door A. I then opened door C to reveal there's a peanut there. You are left with Door A and Door B, I then ask if you wanna swap your choices, would you swap?
Here's why you should always swap. Its a little bit hard to grasp a solid understanding of it but here goes. This is called the Monty Hall Problem by the way. Just keep in mind that the host KNOWS where the money is so when he reveals the door, he ALWAYS opens the one thats peanuts. And also keep in mind that its always 1/3 chan
Pokemon MemoriesWattup. Have you kids heard of a game/anime called Pokemon? Well well well grandpa Ry has a few tales to tell. Mostly about the early days of Pokemon, things you young kids might not know about. So without further ado lets talk Pokeman.Pokemon Memories10 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was an invasion
It was one fine morning, little Ry had his breakfast before heading out to school, and on the TV was one yellow colored strange rabbit looking thing, what else was weird was that it was an anime. Now I was familiar with Japanese anime for a long time because I lived in Hong Kong for the first 8 years of my life, but seeing it on Australian TV was weird, and later on they even showed Dragonball Z on TV and I was like 'wait a minute am I back in Hong Kong? What the shiz is going on?' Anyway I didn't pay much attention to Pokemon, until I watched more and more episodes and before you know it, my classmates were talking about it, my church friends were talking about it, the games started appearing on shelves, Pokemon toys could be
Back from RysolationDear Ryceballs. I have returned. It was a short hiatus, but it was a necessary one. I traveled miles and miles on foot into the Indian Desert by myself, in hope that I would be able to find my missing soul, cos thats what people do when they wanna find their soul right? They always go to India. I called it my 'rysolation period'. So I was out soul searching. On my journey, people has been encouraging to me, giving me kind words and needed motivational speeches, I thank you, you know who you are. I think I am more collected and positive now. Yeah I think I am back. Oh also on my soul search I have had time to work out some 'things'. So yeah look forward to more 'things' from me in the future. The desert was hot as hell by the way, don't really recommend it, what my soul was doing there is beyond me.Back from Rysolation2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Difference between selling Art and selling MeatGreetings Ryceballs. Today I am gonna be talking about the differences between selling art and selling meat.Difference between selling Art and selling Meat2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is absolutely fascinating how different the two can be! :iconyoudontsayplz: ... Well first of all, an artist likes their work to be appreciated and let the audience see for themselves whether they want to buy their artwork or not. While a butcher (ESPECIALLY ASIAN ONES LIKE THE ONE IN THE ARTWORK) only cares about selling the meat and making the profit, they have no sentimental feelings towards what they are selling, because if they do then there won't be any meat to sell right? One of the main rule of a butcher is to have no emotional attachment towards the animals, because they know sooner or later the animal needs to be chopped up. Well what about artists? Well they put their blood, sweat and tears into their artwork to make it as pretty as possible, all in hopes that the audiences would enjoy their art as much as the artist enjoy making them. NOW here's the thing thoug
Confession. Im sorry.. well we areHello my fellow Ryceballs. Its been a while since I wrote another journal I do apologize, I have been busy lately with things. Well.. to be honest there has been some frictions.. with us. You might be confused by what I just said.. well ok let me begin by saying thank you to all the supporters over the years first, 6 to be exact! Ry-Spirit began his life on Deviant 6 years ago! Wow long time right?! And I think it is time that I share something with you guys. Just wanna be honest here.. There is no I in Ry-Spirit. But there is an 'Us'. Ry-Spirit.. Umm Ry.. He never existed.

6 years ago me and 4 talented friends decided to make an account on Deviantart and created a fictional artist by the name of Ry-Spirit. We all had our own individual Deviantart accounts but we weren't really getting a lot of pageviews and attention, mostly because we have our own lives and don't have all day to just sit down and draw. But we really wanted a page th
Went Undercover as a Student at a UniversitySorry for lack of updates, I have been away for a bit. But now I am back to tell more stories and upload more art. Anyway. Sometimes Ry can be a troll (Just sometimes). And I did exactly that last week actually. I pulled off a 21 Jump Street. Right, so I was in Melbourne for a convention and I also stayed longer for a few days to hang out with friends. The night before convention, my friend Alice (Who is a core member of the Japan Club) invited me to visit her University at RMIT for a Japanese movie night as part of her Japan Club's activity. At first I was a bit unsure whether I should go or not since I am not a member of the club or the Uni. But I do like to watch Japanese movies, so I went! :iconmingplz:Went Undercover as a Student at a University1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So there I was, in a room full of young fresh Uni students. One thing I noticed is that when I went into the club room, some people knew each other but many were first timers, they were all introducing themselves to each other, and I did as well. At that mome
OMG its an Asian!I don't know if you guys know this but Im actually an Asian living in Australia. And there's always something from my family that ticks me off, and it's how they always view themselves as an outsider living in a foreign country. My father especially, would always say 'We Asians bla bla bla' and 'The westerners bla bla bla'. Nothing too racist but always drawing a line between the Asians and everyone else who doesn't have black hair and HD widescreen eyes. Very often we would be watching something random on TV and as soon as there's an Asian or mention of Asian, my parents would turn into meerkats sitting right up and bringing their full attention to it. They would be like "OMG its an Asian!" and try to listen closely, sometimes even turning the volume up to find out what is going on. Like as if to find out whether the Aussies are making fun of the Asians. And when there's an Asian in movies, even just a not important character who only appears in the movie for 5 minutes, my dadOMG its an Asian!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Edit 3: [Added character links and another explanation] Okay... there are still people who do not understand the concept of this contest. Here's an example:
You draw one of my characters and one of your characters as characters from another franchise, or from your own original world. They MAY NOT appear as their original species! For example: If our characters are from the SONIC universe, they MAY NOT appear from someone from that universe!
An example of an entry would be:
Drawing mobians in the world of Zelda means they have to be drawn as either a Hylian, Goron, Deku Shrub/Scrub, or a Zora.
Drawing mobians in the Spyro world means they HAVE TO BE DRAGONS WITH A BUILD SIMILAR TO SPYRO!
Drawing mobians in the world of Ratchet and Clank makes them Lombaxes!
NOW do you understand?
Edit 2: Some people don't seem to understand... The characters HAS to appear as another species from another either canon or original fandom! If you don't follow the rules and sti
