A Beginner's Guide
Poetry publication is awash with literary magazines, internet journals, print-on-demand presses, vanity presses, indie presses, and major publication houses. So many options! It's a lot to navigate. But before we delve into the 'How-To's,' it's important to understand the 'Why.'
I'm talking about the the Big Why, the biggest WHY after 'Why write poetry?' Which is, of course, 'Why are you publishing your poetry?'

Tutorial Showcase #13DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal.

Creative Near-Sightedness. Do you have it?Thanks to a brief comment recently made by a friend, it spurred me into coining the phrase 'Creative Near-Sightedness' to describe something I've battled with and continue to battle with, throughout my journey. I hope that this might make some sense to others out there and shed some similar light on your situation like it has mine.Creative Near-Sightedness. Do you have it?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have achieved some of the big goals I've set myself in life, but have always had trouble with achieving some of the more creative goals, due to the fact that, they are often rather ambiguous to begin with, for example:
How do you quantify / visualize a goal like 'I want to be a good artist' when being good is completely relative?
So firstly I want to break it down into a couple of things that might seem simple commonsense, but in my case something I need to constantly remind myself of:
The first thing is: Keep the major goal clear and simple!
Something you can understand and describe to someone simply when they ask you 'but what actually is it?'

NEW PERCY JACKSON NEWS FROM RICK RIORDAN!!!(copying this from my journal because everyone needs to know!!)NEW PERCY JACKSON NEWS FROM RICK RIORDAN!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
OMG uncle rick confirmed that he wrote a kane and percy crossover!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!! :iconcryingrainbowsplz:
So, yes, it's true. As announced today in Publisher's Weekly Children's Bookshelf, I have written a crossover story featuring Carter Kane and Percy Jackson. The story is called "The Son of Sobek."
This is something fans have been asking me to do for years, but why this story and why now? My publisher Disney-Hyperion was looking for something fun to add to the paperback version of The Serpent's Shadow, which comes out May 7 -- something to encourage folks who haven't yet tried the Kane Chronicles to pick up the series. I decided what the heck. Let's throw Carter and Percy together in a Greek-Egyptian dilemma and see what happens. The result was SO much fun to write.
If you buy the paperback version of Serpent's Shadow on May 7, "The Son of Sobek" will be at the end of the book, no extra charge.
5 Ways to Avoid Being DiminishedThere's a discussion brewing in comics about artists being more diminished as of late--that readers, reviewers, and publishers are focusing too much on writers rather than the artists who draw the book. I agree it's happening, but I'm not sure it's worth sounding an alarm over. I never felt diminished, but maybe I'm part of the exception. Maybe it's because I'm an artist and a writer.5 Ways to Avoid Being Diminished7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Either way, I do have a few thoughts on what artists can do to pull themselves out from under the rug.
1. DON'T DRAW LIKE A COG.
If you conform to a "house style", then you're at higher risk of being treated like an interchangeable cog in the comics machine. Yes, you're more likely to get consistent work, but you won't stand out as much. Therefor you'll be sought after less by big name writers, you're less likely to make a lasting impression on reviewers and readers, and you'll have a harder time getting raises (12 others draw like you and for less money).
I also suggests inking yourself if it helps. Penc

Event 6 - Temporal Terraforming“Oh man! You again!? I swear I was JUST HERE!” She looked at Devonshire sternly, as if she could somehow divine the answer she sought from his equally stern gaze. Her appearance in his office was not _totally_ uncalled for, she had been summoned by the blowing of the Thistle Whistle, an amazingly powerful (if not a bit mysterious) instrument that now lay safely in the possession of Arianna. While much more could be said about Arianna and the Thistle Whistle, that’s not relevant to the task soon to be on hand. It’s Jasmine we’re interested in.Event 6 - Temporal Terraforming2 years ago in Personal More Like This
“Ah, yes, you must be the girl Arianna mentioned! We were beginning to think you weren’t going to show, what with you taking so long.” Devonshire really didn’t know how she abruptly appeared in front of him, and didn’t much care.
