Making Happyit's an odd concept, when you think about it. Someone once told me that I shouldn't look for happiness, but instead contentment.Making Happy9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I think that's the wrong goal, at the end of the day.
Life is all about doing what you love and loving doing it. I recently read an article titled "21 Tips to Keep Your Shit Together When You're Depressed" and it had me thinking a lot about the ways I choose to deal with my own life. Here are some of the things I've learned through trial and error (and error and erroranderrorerrorerror.)
Find what makes you special and never let it go. Even when you're convinced there's nothing that sets you apart, there's something that you love and something that you connect to on a deeply emotional level. Never let that go. That is your identity.
Don't become reliant on one person or thing because life has a habit of being unstable. No matter how much you may care about someone or something, it's unfair to them and yourself to count on
remedies for those suffering from writer's blockI was gonna title this "prompt journal" but since I'm listing full-fledged strategies and I'm weird you get this lovely little thing, my own personal Chicken Soup for the Literary Constipated. These are all tactics I use frequently or thought would be fun.remedies for those suffering from writer's block9 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Create the prettiest, most unique imagery you can imagine and then write a poem around those words and phrases. (I once wrote a whole poem around the phrase cereal box savior )
2. Write dedications you plan on never letting anyone see. It can range from two lines to twenty stanzas, but sit down and tell everyone what you think of them in as poetic a way as you can. This is really cathartic and a good practice for those who don't write dedications well (*cough* me)
3. Write a diary entry in verse. Take your own emotions and stories and fictionalize them; make them close enough to the truth that it's easy to write but far enough from yourself that you still feel it's beautiful. This is also really cathartic.
4. Take a com

idk if this will be a success or not but i hope it will
basically, what i've decided to do is run a very small contest, and by small i mean small because i'm not a well known author so yup.
it's a contest for writers both big (i mean if you want to) and small (also, if you want to) and the pairing is obviously phan.
so, here is the subject for this competition...
Star Crossed lovers who were not meant to be.

make it angsty, make it fluffy, make is smutty, make it angsty and fluffy, it's your fic, you do what you want with it!
if you do decide to enter (that would be gr8) then name it 'Star Crossed' so then i know

Walt Disney, John Pomeroy, and meWhat do all three of us have in common? Animation, of course. But as far as this posting goes, there are two seperate bits of info I'm giving you:Walt Disney, John Pomeroy, and me9 months ago in Personal More Like This
1) I just saw this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAl9P4T12Rs&featurelayer_embedded to a much loved video of Walt Disney talking about "art style". I as a part of some Disneyland show he did for TV way back when, but it is one of THE BEST looks at the individuality of the artists at the studio back then. Its one of the few times that Disney acknowledges how many different styles reside in the animation studio and that they must all melve together to create one vision. But also contribute their "pieces of uniqueness" in the creation of the ultimate style of a film. It also includes the famous clip, "Four artists paint a tree" that is the second half of the video and plays out all that he says before. A MUST SEE FOR ANY ARTIST!
2) Just last night, I did a podcast interview with leg

I was at my desk with all the new pages of Roommates: Kings War spread out in front of me.
Someone or something out there loves us, because despite a spectacular spill, ink went only on my hands, the chair leg, my leg, the discard papers on top of my pile of unused paper, and the half-inch space on my desk between pages.
Not a drop on the comic.
I'm deliriously grateful and amused.

Hinata Changed History!The moment Hinata’s hand made impact with Naruto’s cheek, the moment he was awakened out of the impending darkness illuminating from a hand out stretched to him. That moment, the parallel between Naruto and Obito separated at a cross roads and the multitude of mistakes that Obito made out of the lonely confines of unrequited love’s woes ceased relevance to Naruto’s character.Hinata Changed History!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hinata is the one that saved Naruto from Obito’s fate. She is a factor, an option, a person, Obito never had. Obito never was graced with a Hinata. She stood between a breaking point within Naruto, she picked up the pieces of his grief, and once again ignited the passion and belief in himself in front of adversity, in the middle of a war that would determine the fate of all either one of them has ever known.
Kishimoto is stressing the pain Obito felt over the loss of Rin to show how tragically not letting go and moving forward can be.
He also showed that Naruto knew Sakura would never
naruhinaFirst off, NaruSaku.naruhina5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Naruto and Sakura interact often, usually very well. They are pretty comfortable, and many scenes between them are humorous. But as soon as Naruto acts out, Sakura makes sure he's put back into place, usually using violence, which does not count as any of the following:
Sakura usually punches Naruto because she is embarrassed of him or because he surprises her. But those are pretty stuoid excuses, don't you think? There's no doubt in my mind that Sakura obviously cares deeply for Naruto, but punching him just for basically being dumb? That's lame. Which is why I don't find their relationship to be very appealing.
Naruto and Hinata seem to have a very good, understanding relationship whenever they get the chance to talk. Naruto feels no need to act all high and mighty for her-- as proved in chapter 98. And, like NaruSaku, NaruHina seems to be a humorous relationship. But, humorous in a different wa

Tom B. General updateHey everybody, I hope you're doing well. I just wanted to plop on here and- for once- not sell anything. I thought I'd just say, "Blah, the weather is rainy" for starters. I'm super busy with about 4 different jobs and preparing for some trips/lectures. I'm excited about most all of it. One cool thing is it looks like I might be going to Orlando and Vancouver to speak at two of the EA video game studios! Its the two that do the sports games but I won't be talking sports (thank goodness- not a sports guy), I'll be talking about performance/acting in your animation. Something they don't get to do a lot of but will be doing more and more of in the future, I'm sure. I have good friends at the Orlando office so looking forward to seeing them. BEFORE that, there's a local comic con here (in Nashville, TN) that I was just invited to just the other day. It's called GMX (httpTom B. General update1 year ago in Personal More Like This

WARNING this is a very long-overdue rant, so it's likely to be lengthy. I don't have very much to do here in Vietnam when I'm not traveling, so I thought I'd sit down and get some of my thoughts out. I apologize for any mistakes in grammar or spelling I may make because I'm too lazy to edit this.
