Naming Characters: A TutorialThis is it! You have made a super sexy awesome character that fights evil purple monkeys and saves the world from imminent destruction! All you have to do is write the story! But suddenly, you're stuck. Yes, this character is super sexy and awesome, but... what's their name? This is a sad attempt at me showing you how to give your characters super sexy names to go along with their super sexy monkey fighting skills!Naming Characters: A Tutorial5 years ago in Writing More Like This
Option one: Think about it for a long time
Sometimes if you think about it long enough, inspiration will strike and you'll think of the perfect name for your character. Obviously this doesn't work for everyone, as most people can only think of the names of people they know. Which leads me to option 2...
Option two: Think of people you know
Now, this option doesn't work for some people because it freaks them out. I hate naming my characters after people I know, or at least see on a daily basis. It makes me feel awkward to talk a

There are several things you can do with dA's text. You can use Italics, Bold, Underline,
Strikethrough, and even change font face or font type. However, there aren't many directions on how to do these things. So, I'm going to give you a quick semi-tutorial on how to work these.
These features are easy enough to use once you know what you're doing. You just have to learn tags. You can visit this link to learn about some other common HTML tags.
The Simpleist Tags to Use Are:
< i > to begin italics and < /i > to end the italics
< strong > to begin bold and < /strong > to end the bold
< b > to begin bold and < /b > to end the bold
< u > to begin underline and < /u > to end the underline
< strike >
to begin strike and< /strike > to end the strike
< s > to begin strike and < /s > to end the strike

"Himawari-chan, I have your lunch!"
"Here you go Himawari-chan!"
"Thank you, Watanuki-kun!"
"You are very welcome, Himawari-chan."
"I see. Of course. Thank you, Yuuko-san. Do I need to tell you what she said?"
"No! No, you don't, and I don't want to hear it! I don't need a freaking baby-sitter!"
"Yuuko thinks you do."
"That's her! Not me!"
"Are you a fortune-teller?"
"No! Of course not!"
"I'll come get you after class. I'll get the instructor to let you wait while I practice."
"What? No! I said I don't want to wait !"
"You gonna eat that?"
"Yes I am!"
"I do not, not, NOT take orders from you!"
This is "Talking Head Syndrome." There are no dialogue tags, because I don't use them.

RESEARCH is your Best Friend.
"...for bigger fictions (maybe 10-20 chapters, or more) for a big fan fiction or OC fiction, how much do you plan out?" -- Wanna Rite Reel Gud
How much do I plan out for one of my novels...?
-- I detail everything. Seriously. I believe in a Total Immersion style of writing. In other words, I want to know the world so well, I can simply step into the mind and skin of my main character and LIVE the story.
How do I do that...?
I start with a basic plot formula and extrapolate on certain points as needed.
Romance needs extra doses of lover's angst, Gothics need psychological breakdowns, Horrors need room for monster attacks, Sci-Fi's and Fantasies need moments of wonder... This gives me a rough plot outline to work from.
Next, I break down each of the Three Main Characters: Hero/Ally/Villain.
This is to make sure that they a
