How to Invent a Good UsernameTime for a quickie tutorial!How to Invent a Good Username4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Your username (also known as nick) gives one of first impressions of you when introducing yourself online. At the best, your username tells people you're an original person with good taste, and at the worst, it blends you to the mass of people lacking imagination.
GENERAL ISSUES TO THINK ABOUT
Here is a list about issues that are healthy to think about in general. After this section, I'll give you "not to do" and "to do" lists about creating usernames. So...
The most important thing is that YOU like your name. If you don't feel cozy with your username, it will irritate you sooner or later. However, especially if you are still young or new with Internet, be prepared for that your naming taste may change later and you may dislike that name you picked first! (That's something I have seen in the comments of this tutorial.)
For example, my first online username was, if I remember correctly, my given name + my birth year (like, Lisa90,

No hay nada más frustrante que un artist block y para mí no hay nada más frustrante que leer eso de alguien más.
Sé que deben haber otros tuts con cómo salir de un artist block, así que simplemente me basaré en cómo pueden cazar la inspiración, estén bloqueados o no, pero primero deben responder a la pregunta:
¿Me satisface lo que hago?
Si están bloqueados es porque necesitan simplemente un cambio de aires, uno se aburre hasta de lo que más le gusta hacer. Ahora, si están bloqueados tipo "nada me sale" o "no puedo hacer nada" y el cambio de aires no es una idea a aceptar, lo tomaría como que son esclavos de lo que hacen y por eso tanto su imaginación como su cuerpo (el "plasmador" de obras) se rebelan. Pongan atención a sus estados y no vayan en su contra, eso empeora el caso. Si ya no pueden dibujar, escriban, si no escriben, lean, vean películas, hagan deporte, jueguen videojue

The Particular Sadness of Pomegranate Seeds IThe Particular Sadness of Pomegranate Seeds I3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She raised her palms to the sky, fingers spread, and sunk her toes into the earth. Heat-filled particles of light warmed her face and the moist cool matter softened her toes. This was life and she relished in its glory.
Nature was her mother and the ruler of the cosmos was her father. She imagined herself as a tree, her feet diving down into the rich folds of the earth, planting their roots, while her fingers extended to the heavens forming into a million branches. Leaves and flowers exploded from her branches as they begged for the gift of light from the sun.
She walked in beauty. From where she stood, a gathering of red poppies reached to her gently brushing against her calf, begging to feel her touch. She leaned forward caressing the petals with the tips of her fingers and the flowers gently kissed her face in return. She laughed. She had always imagined that poppies would make for extremely faithful friends, providing every comfort and need in times of despair, but they would alway

A Guide to OCTsOriginal Character Tournaments are all over deviantart and keep growing in popularity, but not everyone knows what they are or how to participate in them.

What is an OCT?
OCTs, or "Original Character Tournaments" are contests held here on deviantart in which you can pit your original characters against other people's characters in a comic-style battle-royale. To put it simply, it's a cross between an art competition and a storytelling contest.
OCTs can be hosted on someone's account, or they can have a tournament account of their own. OCTs are usually open to anyone with a deviantart account, although some are invite only. Information about who is eligible to audition will usually be clearly stated s

I'm going to try and briefly cover World Building specifically for Fantasy and Science Fiction (though it will apply in general to any setting), both major and minor Characters, and some basics of Timeline here. I am not going to walk you step by step through how to write your own story, but you should (hopefully) get some useful tips out of this.
I never used to organize my novels before I started writing. I have so many stories in my head, I would just pick one and start writing. I didn't have trouble keeping to the same details of a given character because I knew them so well. But after taking such a long break from writing Missing Puzzle Pieces, I really needed to do some serious work. I don't remember all the details I had in my head back when I started... in fact, I've completely forgotten the original ending. For those of you who don't know my story, which starts
How to create an interesting CharacterOC (Original Character) is something that sadly has a rare to no appearance in TF2 Fandom. People started to step out of the idea to create something truly original, once SFM gained on its popularity. These days most of the OCs (Which have a more accurate naming: FC – Fanmade Character) are described by a different set of cosmetic items slapped on a canon model. I’m one of the people who do that.How to create an interesting Character1 month ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
But that doesn’t mean your Character can’t be interesting.
PERSONALITY is what makes your characters interesting, but way too many people either limit themselves to one insignificant aspect, or they’re making a way too big variety of different behaviors.
So Happy, Sad, Serious, Shy, Friendly, Mean etc. are NOT a base for a character’s behavior. They’re merely one of many attributes.
Also known as the very core of every personality. People change over time d

- Something to fight Zombies with. Whether it's guns, knives, or a baseball bat, you need something to bash some Zombie skulls. You can most likely find guns at a Walmart if it hasn't been stripped of weapons.
Note: Remember, ANYTHING can be a weapon. Even a pencil!
- From a screwdriver to a flashlight. You need to be able to see to repair, but you also need to repair to see. See what I mean? Okay, sorry, bad pun.
Note: You will also need BATTERIES, so try to find some. They've got to be either in your house or that store across the street. I really don't think Zombies would be interested in those things anyways.
- When I say health I mean a First Aid Kit (although that might not help you when it comes to bites), and you'll also need some Meds. You can find them most likely at a Walgreen's or a Walmart. You will also need to find some food and water. Grab a backpack or a dufflebag and fill it with water b

Sadly, he fails to live up to expectations with his social awkwardness and general aloof nature.
