Vizkopa's Writing TipsHi everyone!Vizkopa's Writing Tips1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you may know, I’m in my final year of a Creative Writing degree and while I still have a long way to go in terms of my writing skills, I’ve picked up some very useful tips from my tutors over the last few years (and bear in mind, some of these tutors are published writers, so their advice is sound!). These tips have really helped me to improve my writing and I would like to share just a few of them with you all Included in this journal are some points about writing in general, as well as ones that are a little more specific to fan fiction. A lot of them might seem really simple and obvious to some, but they are so very important and I hope everyone can take at least something away from this, and that you continue to be inspired to write and hone your skills
Now I have formatting as number one because so matter how good of a writer you are, no matter how beautiful your prose is, it needs to be readable! A lot of

Frozen was Disney’s tremendously successful third attempt at adapting the grimm Hans Christian Anderson tale The Snow Queen. As early as 1943, Walt Disney saw the potential in this the longest and most highly acclaimed of Andersen’s stories, but it to

ATTENTION ONE PIECE FANSI wanted to share with you guys some suuuuuuper One Piece-related news! Have you ever heard of the Unofficial One Piece Podcast? They're a group of chill dudes who discuss all the latest news, manga chapters, anime episodes, and merchandise, to name but a few things. The OP Podcast has also interviewed various Funimation voice actors, like Christopher R. Sabat (Zoro), J. Michael Tatum (Eneru, Dalton, Pearl), Colleen Clinkenbeard (Luffy), Patrick Seitz (Franky), and Vic Mignogna (Nezumi). They've been going since 2009! You guys should definitely give them a listen. One of their correspondents lives in Japan and reports about exclusive One Piece events and trivia. This is the very same podcast that has raised a little over $42,000 for their "Anime Fans Give Back to Japan" charity initiative.ATTENTION ONE PIECE FANS2 years ago in Personal More Like This

He comes to us, not to shield us from the harshness of the world but to give us the courage and strength to bear it; not to snatch us away by some miracle from the conflict of life, but to give us peace - His peace - by which we can be calmly steadfast while the conflict rages, and be able to bring to the torn world the healing that is peace.'

When I joined here on 1st of January 2014 and submitted my first drawing 2 days later I just wanted to show others what I'm drawing.
And maybe receive a nice comment from someone.
But now, over 8 month later I've got much more then just some nice words.
I've found some really awesome people here who became friends to me.
Their works inspired me a lot to go on and improve my skills.
Here are some of those lovely and awesome people with their breathtaking and inspiring art
And so much more people... Too many to count.

EPIC 5 Tags~!!! XD:iconlazyonion:MiChan's Answers:iconcreepyonionplz:EPIC 5 Tags~!!! XD2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tagged by: :iconKatokushka:
1. Do you like people with unusual appearance (dreadlocks, piercings, colored hair, tattoos)
Umm.. it's just fine with MiChan because it is their own style. MiChan respected that, but NEVER ask MiChan's style to be changed because that's very impolite.
2. Your favorite food and why it is a favorite (can be somewhat)
Anything sweet, spicy, and soup-like are MiChan's most fav food. MiChan actually loves chicken porridge the most.
3. What are your plans for the future: who would you like to be, how many years you want to start a family and so on.
MiChan sees herself living with a simple life, just like what she really wanted. About starting a family? It really depends if there's a good and reliable man out there
4. Do you have any pets, tell about them.
Before, MiChan had 4 dogs and 3 cats, but the four dogs died and one of the cat, too. Now s

To be honest, now.... I'm in Japan for 2 days (and one day for a flight). I'm in Miyagi prefecture, in Sendai city ;DDD

Thank you so much to everyone who entered. The variety of entries was better than I could have imagined! I was really amazed by all the creativity. I saw the bra turned into a vest. I saw the neck chain used as a signature weapon. I saw the red drapery turned into skirts and loose, baggy pants. I was amused to notice so many people leaving the boots as they were after I mentioned that I liked them. I saw Leias suited for ballroom dancing, sneaking around dark city streets, firebending, brawling, and just being awesome!

How ya'll been? So recently as you know I've been on a bit of a health kick. Yeah... I slightly broke it (for a month omg) XD But what has my health kick got to do with the topic of this journal? WELL! I was thinking about it today and I've seen so many comments on cosplayer's photos over the years that make me quite upset to see. There are comments like "you're fat", "you're boobs are too small" or "you're ugly". Or even the opposite of "you're too thin", "you're boobs are too big and saggy" or "your face doesn't suit this character". So as you can tell it'll be rather ranty so if you don't wanna read that's ok XD
When I first started cosplaying I got this a couple of times and yes, it hurts. It upsets me to see that people go out of their way to make someone feel bad for all the hard work they've put into a costume. So what image does everyone expect to see when cosplayers' cosplay? They expect them to look exactly like this character they're cosplaying, right? Well
