En los siguientes párrafos, leeremos toda una serie de paradojas.
1) No hay tal cosa como malos clientes: sólo malos diseñadores.
A nosotros nos encanta culpar a nuestros clientes por un trabajo pobre. Cuando los proyectos se vuelven amargos, siempre es la culpa del cliente -- nunca nuestra --. Por supuesto que hay malos clientes. Pero diseñadores tratándolos mal usualmente los convierten en malos clientes. Como diseñadores, terminamos con los clientes que merecemos.
2) La mejor forma de aprender a ser un mejor diseñador gráfico es convertirse en cliente.
En las pocas ocasiones en que he pagado por un diseño gráfico, he aprendido más sobre ser un diseñador que en cualquier otra cosa que haya hecho. Es sólo al encomendar a otros diseñadores que descubrimos que muchos de nosotros no somos muy buenos en articular lo que hacemos o cómo trabajamos. Para muchos clientes, l
The FoustsTwo of my characters have obscenely large immediate families which I thought I'd finally share a bit about. And we shall start with this bunch.The Fousts2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Before we go, a reminder that we're in my other storyverse, Hellecker, entirely separate from the Network stories.
This would be Morgan Daubenmire's family as they were seven years ago, just before Morgan secretly and accidentally became the world's most incredible shapeshifter, faked her death, and fled from home.
The Fousts are a moderately poor farming family hunkered down in the rural county of Honeywell. The region is a warm, wide-open area of modest hills traced by little creeks and ponds cloaked in mosquito-ridden bushes, with one large and lazy river tapped into by dozens of cat-tail-clogged irrigation ditches winding off into myriad fields.
Common crops are wheat, barley, peas, and lentils, many families also keep orchards, and everyone has a garden, chickens, and milk cow for their own use. S

Tacking on wings months too late; our legs didn't break -
Fate gave me a flower; snowflakes and granite

I am home.
Your eyes of forests, branching away.
Defeathered, dust settling;

Writing Tutorial - DialogueWhile some authors may talk about how their writing is all talent and a gift from The Powers That Be, the truth is anyone can do a great deal to improve their writing. One effective way is through working on your dialogue.Writing Tutorial - Dialogue6 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Fan fiction can be particularly bad about this, but God-awful dialogue can be found just about anywhere, from popular books to comics to television. Bad dialogue often happens when people lose sight of reality and get hung up in the information or message theyre trying to get their character to communicate. Good dialogue is a natural reflection of the characters and the world, is easy on the ears/eyes and moves the plot forward in one way or another.
Tips for Improving Your Dialogue:
Yep, just listen. Next time youre on a bus or waiting at a restaurant, take a moment and listen to the conversations around you. Listen to the rhythm, the accents, the grammar people use in daily life. Good dialogue sounds natural. Bad dialog do

El arte de la autopromocionEl arte de la autopromocion5 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Hace poco compré un libro llamado " I had be rather in the studio" (Prefiero quedarme en el estudio) de la autora Alyson Stanfield. Lo compré porque me llamó la atención su slogan "la guía para artistas: no más excusas para la autopromoción" .
Todos los artistas tenemos excusas para no "auto promocionarnos" , algunas de las más frecuentes excusas son : "no tengo tiempo" , "no sé por dónde empezar" , "soy muy introvertido/tímido" , "no tengo dinero" , pero la excusa más frecuente para no salir al mundo es "prefiero quedarme en el estudio / prefiero quedarme en mi casa".
Para que nuestro arte sea conocido tenemos que auto-promocionarnos. Es vital , es fundamental. Y más si quieres sacar dinero de tu arte.
¿Sabe tu vecino que dibujas? Si no , necesitas autopromoción de urgencia. Las primeras personas que necesitas enseñarle que dibujas es tu fam

Kiku sighed, still staring down at his lunch in his lap. He sat alone at the edge of the lunch hall, often just on a chair as all tables were taken by groups of people.
"Yes, and I'm not listening." He replied quietly, continuing eating.
"Ooh, trying to be a smartass are you?" Alfred sneered from above him. "Lets see how smart you are now!" He turned, grabbing a bottle of juice from behind him and dumping the contents onto Kiku's head.
Laughter erupted from most of the lunch hall as Kiku inwardly sighed, his hair now sticky and dripping wet and his lunch ruined. Alfred roared with laughter and swaggered off, his 'posse' following him. Matthew, Alfred's twin brother, shot him an apologetic look before following him.
Kiku stood, dumping his ruined food into the bin before walking out of the lunch hall, following his usual route to the

Writing Tutorial: Dialogue"An Amateur-Editor's Note on How to Paragraph Dialogue, and Other Dialogue-Related Crime Avoidance Techniques" by DailennaWriting Tutorial: Dialogue8 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
On my daily walk about the internet I often come across some horrible piece of writing at which I'm forced to stop reading and take a few deep breaths to calm myself before either sending a note to the writer, or fleeing in terror. These pieces of writing are usually just an accumulation of terrible spelling, grammar, syntax, and too much or too little plot, description, dialogue or action. Yes, there are stories that may have a lean towards dialogue or action and still look absolutely wonderful – in fact, these are the stories usually best written, because the author has learnt how to use their skills and mediums to produce the best result from a usually disastrous content – but the bundles of words I'm referring to have not had the same care and talent poured into them.
It could be the case that small children and people who don't have English as a

I knew it in the most obvious manner. It was in the way you had a subtle sort of comfort in your own skin a quiet and humble confidence while I struggled to make sense of the prints on my fingertips and the way one of my eyes crinkled in the corner more than the other when I smiled. You felt safe with yourself while I was always warring with my own reflection. Half the time, I didn't know who I was. A quarter of the time, I still don't. You would call this progress if you were here to see, but I just call it sad.
When you miss something for long enough, you start to forget the exact way that things happened. Or the exact way they happened to fall apart. For instance, I don't remember the first time you didn't call, but I do remember when you told me you loved me but not enough. It's never enough, is it? The point is you were gone before I could even say goodbye. You were gone before you were ever really here, but somehow I let myself bu

I'm just a human.

So why am I hated?
Because I'm different?
Everyone is lost in a book

Because I like things
Things that people consider repulsive?
Because I read things
Things people consider sick and mortifying?

It matters not.

Only I can change me
But I won't.

star you blot out. you store them
in your evanescent eyes, making

your lips are cold

the sun sits in the hollow

drowning me in your

Colorless Self-Injury (Original English Lyrics)I wanna be a person like youColorless Self-Injury (Original English Lyrics)2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I wanna be “a person who is truly me”
If that's what I wish for, then I can always do so
But is it really who I am?
A dream is a mere puerile trick
If that's who I am, then I should just die
Just the presence of someone like me
Makes ten thousands of people suffer
Nobody wishes to see me
It'd be nice if the world actually went that way.
Just the disappearance of this kind of me
Makes billions of people feel at ease
If nobody held grudges against anything
There's no way such a happy can happen can't it?
Tomorrow too, I will be half sleeping
If only I could just vanish like this.
Billions of people don't know
About the existence of someone like me
Nobody wishes to see me
Would it be nice if the world went that way?
At the place where I disappeared
Billions of people wouldn't change a thing
Even if nobody hated me
I wouldn't be able to regain what I'd lost
In the end, everyone will all collapse in the same way
The “Self” made in others

He slowly heaved himself up, wincing as he stood unsteadily, and made his was to the bathroom, leaning on the sink and staring at his face in the mirror. His cheek had gotten less swollen over the night, now the swelling was barely noticeable. However, his cheek was now tinged pinkish-red, and slowly getting darker.

After he had finished, Kiku replaced the small bottle back into the cabinet and quickly washing his hair, before retrieving his school bag from his room and leaving the house as fast as he could.
