In the year 350,000 B.C., refugee scientists from Mars landed on Earth as their world was already begin to die. They landed on a small island
that was in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. When they had landed, they began to build a base and a small city so they could recreate their
civilization. By there on Earth, they realized that they need a slave race to help with buildings of cities and the mining of metals and minerals.

at the time were Homo Erectus. The scientists captured a few hundred of these natives and thus began to experiment on them, and with these experiments came
a new race of men, called Homo Atlantea. Over the years, this new race saw their creators as gods, and some of the scientists would interbreed with
the new of race of humanity and were also worshipped as demigods. 310,000 years had passed, a

The sky was alight, as fireworks blanketed the sky over Hanami village. The atmosphere giving off a sense of love, and brotherhood as the villagers celebrated. Blue, yellow, then red. An explosion of color, followed by an uproar of cheer.
Never before had such happiness arisen from the forests of Felarya as there was today, especially for two unlikely friends that sat just beyond the village temple.
"Wow! Kala-chan look at that one!" Hanami exclaimed as she viewed the spectacle above her.

Leo the Dewott sighed, content as he lied in a tree above the dark swampy forest floor. Up above the canopy the sun was welcoming, but below the swamp lied in perpetual night.
Leo needed to wait for the muck to dry a bit before he went out for food, so for now he just relaxed and stared up at the clouds in the orange sunset sky. His relaxation was disturbed however, when a flock of pidgey erupted around him from the forest, whipping him with feathered flapping wings and buzzing with a mass of random cries. He lost his balance, grabbing at the branch, and dangled by his arms as he watched the pidgey fly off, and grumbled. He began to climb back up, when a tremor shook the tree. Leo's hands slipped, and he crashed down into the muck. Sitting up, he grimaced at the grime now covering him, and jumped when the tremor came again; closer and louder. He covered his mouth when he heard a growl, an

Today, I spent a good many hours scouring the internet for tips on improving my writing. You know, useful and practical suggestions for someone who has actually written a bit and wants hints on some of the finer points of writing—you know, as opposed to just wanting to learn how to get publishers interested in the latest Hunger Games or Twilight knock-off. Well, other than the two masters of storytelling—Stan Lee and Stephen King—I found nothing. I thought to myself, “Blake, even you could offer better writing advice than this!” And so I have. Here are three non-subjective tips for the beginning writer.
Tip 1: Pay attention to “Point of View” (POV)
The first mistake I made in writing my novel, and one that I have seen in every single beginning writer's work that I have edited since, is that I did not really pay attention to POV and narration. When telling a story, it is important to rememb

Ichigo laid in his bed, staring out the window and up into the night sky, thinking, thinking hard. His orange brows were creased with concentration, and a scowl was set upon his face as he thought.
There was a woman, a fair looking woman, with dark purple hair that fell just past her shoulders. Her eyes were amber, a deep, beautiful amber that held such warmth that it could sooth even the coldest of hearts.
Ichigo's eyes narrowed as he tried to recall the rest, reaching into his subconscious and grasping whatever else he could of what happened.

Melodrama, strictly defined, means a “song drama,” of the French tradition. The tradition of this story was characterized by over-the-top emotions, to the point that the character's emotions were unintentionally funny, or ridiculous. Melodrama in modern literature, is a term used for when the emotions of your characters are absurd, petty, beyond control, and seem to overshadow the story; and today I'm going to talk about overcoming the melodrama in your story. Please note that this is something to be considered in the editing process, not in the first draft. There will be melodrama—but don't worry about it until you have a whole story down on paper or digital ink.
Step 1: Identify the melodrama in your story.
If you have written a first draft with a good number of characters with different wants and desires, there WILL be melodrama. And so your first step will go to every scene where there are emotional flares—of love,

The Corvettes serve mostly as primary patrol craft, with an maximal endurance of one month, while mostly the departures only last for one or two weeks during peacetime, while they usually have a supply ship around in wartime. Corvettes patrol the more secure, inner systems of the Alliance territory and hunt down smugglers and weakly armed pirates without fighters. The Mercury for example carries a flight of five fighters occasionally, and the two light PACs and the Mass Driver turrets as well are enough to threat every non military pirate ship and unfortified smuggler/ pirate station. However, if the enemy is ready to defend himself, the Corvette is rather underarmed. In wartime the Corvette is used for quick wolf-pack strikes, either out of jumps or from gas planets or asteroid fields.

Hurry up," Catherine complained. She was obviously annoyed. Despite her friendly and calm nature, she got impatient from time to time. She had just turned 19 and was a beautiful and smart girl. Catherine worked hard for school and liked everything neat and orderly. Her school uniforms were hardly ever wrinkled, her shoes were always clean, her long red hair was neatly braided. She was the complete opposite of Stella.
Her friend was following closely behind her . She was a bit shorter than Catherine and had trouble keeping up. Not because of her physique, though.

The light it gave bounced off the hull of the majestic Explorer of the Seas, seeming to mock the sun and the useless warmth it gave off.

The number one reason for people refusing to read a book is boredom. And no matter how much good content can be found if one just “sticks it out,” it will never be found if your readers have to drudge through even a single boring chapter. So, for both writing and post-draft editing, here are 6 steps to making EVERY chapter most excellent.
Step 1: Create a three-act plot structure for each chapter.
Every chapter of a novel should be a short story in and of itself—almost like a comic book or television drama. Now, it is not essential that the three-act plot structure be done perfectly, but every chapter should have the hero encountering a problem, growing from that experience, and a climax where the hero overcomes or is overcome by the problem. Doing this will make sure that every chapter is vital to the story and that something is always happening.
Step 2: Make every chapter opening a hook.
The hook might be

The young pink haired lover ambled through the arched gateway of a small park just outside of Death City's limits. The cobbled path he took lead him up a grassy hill where a fiery red maple tree stood in stark contrast with the light blue of the midday sky. As he reached closer to the maple tree he spotted golden strands that seemed a sweeter color than any syrup the tree could ever hope to produce. Her tank top matched with the clear sky and her tartan skirt the same as the yellows of the brilliant sun and blazing leaves that scattered the ground below her. All of this was outshone by her scintillating smile as she eagerly waved her arm at him.
A shy smile reached his lips as he saw her for the first time that day. Overwhelmed he sprinted up the rest of the path and through the grass to where she stood, and with a small oomph collapsed into her body wrapping his arms around her waist.

All the while he struggled hopelessly with the white tie hanging precariously from around his slender neck, trying desperately to fit it in place.
Why he was dressed the way he was, he didn't know, but Maka had insisted they dress at least somewhat formally for the occasion. Since this was the first official dinner on board their ship, Maka was adamant everyone would be dressed the same way, as if to make a good impression on those around them. Not only that, but Crona had a nagging feeling that the Meister was trying her best to impress those around them, as if she hoped to make up for their hopelessly late arrival by showing themselves off at their finest.
