In a Little Girl's MindThere sits the girl with the things in her eyes
Monsters, destruction, and sweet butterflies
Hopscotch and daisies, surrounded by screams
Beautiful dresses now torn at the seams
Crayons and paintbrushes, villains and grins
Young, gladsome innocence, hatred and sins
Little red houses on roads left to fade
Gorgeous moonlight shining off of the blade
Blood pouring out as she cries her own name
Knowing she's forced to take each bit of blame
She could have stopped it and left it behind
All of these things in her troubled young mind
She could have saved them if she dared to try
Rather, though, she left herself there to die.
Now, others watch as she

I got a request from :iconGreen-Nicole5: which wanted me to do a more specific personality of Loki, to know more of him as a INTJ.
What does INTJ stand for?

Writers Notes - DialogueWriters Notes - Dialogue2 years ago in Writing More Like This
Dialogue is the speech between characters. It is when the narrator (you) stops telling the story and the characters speak instead.
Here's some pointers regarding dialogue writing:
Never write dialogue like real-life speech. Why? Because if you listen to real-life speech it is littered with umms and ahhs and errs. Anyone who has ever sat through a meeting or an assembly listening to someone droning on umming and ahhing will know just how frustrating it is. The last thing you want is to inflict that on your reader.
Real life also has moments where you completely forget what y

When I was a mid-teenager, I was captaining a private research vessel through three oceans to study wild dolphins up close. I was still young, and it was a vessel I did not own nor steer. But I plotted its course, I did the main research, and my word to stop or go was the word to be listened to. However, it needed 12 years of training with (wild) animals,

5 am, thinking of you
a certain romance
a chill in the air
a day to be remembered
a door to the unknown
a fresh start
a kiss to build a dream on
a little bit of heaven
a mirror's story
a moment suspended in time
a new beginning
a peaceful world
a smile like yours
a thousand shades of passion
a thousand years from now
a whole other story
after my dreams come true
after the rain
ain't this a fairytale?
all for love
all time adored
always in my heart

Writing Notes - Killing charactersWriting Notes - Killing characters1 year ago in Writing More Like This
Many writers state that they are very connected to their characters. This is not surprising, for writers we build worlds, we create people and animals and imbue them with a form of life. We let them live in our heads and think on them often.
Often I have day-dreamed into my written world, sat on a log watching my characters around the campfire swapping stories. I've seen them laughing, passing around skins of bad wine and spiced meats. I've seen them sink into sorrow at those they have lost, those they couldn't save. Whether any of this gets written is a different matter because it is all designed for me to learn more about my characters, so
Writer Notes- Plot DevelopmentWriter Notes- Plot Development2 years ago in Writing More Like This
Whether you are writing a novel or a short story it is best to have your MAIN PLOT before you get too much written down. The Main Plot is the singular thread that runs through the novel/story. You may have character ideas or scene ideas but eventually you need to think about a plot. Do this sooner rather than later.
The best way to do this is to list your main characters and then decide what are their individual main plots. Are they all on the same quest with the same ideas / goals or do some of them have their own goals?
To help show this, here's an example:

Here I have compiled a small list of ways you can help yourself network through dA a.k.a building your own empire. This is just based upon my own experiences and witnessing other's doing. This is by no means a how-to on being that front page artist. You either have be be beyond elite and catering to the popular genres of art OR become a well known hack doing the same thing over and over again.
1. First things first, improve your artwork FOR YOURSELF!
Your first goal is to stop worrying about getting exposure. Oh the irony of that first step. You need to be your own artist discovering things for yourself on top of improving your techniques. Enjoy your process of artwork, you'll be surprised at how much better your end product looks versus a piece of work you did just to do it and get it uploaded on dA real fast. Do not compare yourself to other artists tha

Here is a tutorial on how to create a well balanced original character for the Naruto series. In this tutorial, I will talk about various abilities, powers and flaws you can use to better flesh out your characters. This system is borrowed heavily in traditional d20 RPG rules, so if youve played games like Dungeons and Dragons before, then some of this will seem familiar.
Please note that this tutorial contains some spoilers in Naruto (if you don't read the manga).
The Abilities: Strength, Constitution, Stamina, Agility, Dexterity, Intelligence, Wisdom, Charisma, Comeliness
To each of the above abilities, you wil
Writing Lesson: Naming Your CharacterYour character's name is one of the most important decisions you have to make when writing a story. There are tons of resources for naming your characters (baby name websites being my personal favorite) but there are also many things you should take into consideration. Here are some do's and don'ts in no particular order.Writing Lesson: Naming Your Character3 weeks ago in Writing More Like This
Similar names for twins I read an article on names recently that expressly forbid the use of matching or similar twin names because it was "overdone". While yes, naming your twins Jayden and Kayden can be a bit tacky sounding, the truth is that people do it. A lot. I've personally met a pair of identical twins named Kirsten and Kristen. Do I think their parents are crazy? A little, but when you're choosing names for your twins, it's hard not to look for rhyming or alliteration. For writers, my only suggestion is to make them visually different enough that readers can tell them apart. Jace and Jackson are easy twin names to read, but
