Proofreading Tips #2 Semicolon Conjunctive AdverbsProofreading Tips #2 Semicolon Conjunctive Adverbs1 year ago in Writing More Like This
...Wow, that's a mouthful! These suckers are used to attach two independent clauses as one single sentence. Many people have confusion about when to use commas, semicolons, and colons. Semicolon conjunctive adverbs are helpful to emphasize the relationship between two thoughts (as opposed to separate sentences). Here is a list of words commonly used for this:
Some examples in sentences include:
"She arrived to school late; consequently, the teacher did not accept her homework."
"Man could not overcome the demon army; thus, the age of darkness was born."
"He forgot his lunch; additionally, he had no umbrella for the rain."
Note that these are different from conjunction words such as "and," "but," and "or." These attach two independent clauses with a comma.
OC Mary-Sue Test 2.1OC Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu TestOC Mary-Sue Test 2.13 years ago in Writing More Like This
This test is designed for Original Characters. Questions for Role Play Characters and Fan Characters will be added soon.
Now, this tests for both the traditional Mary Sue/Gary Stu, and for 'gloomdog' style characters, which I suppose is a sub-category of the Mary Sue, but is often over-looked in this kind of test.
Further down this test, there is a list of traits and characteristics, each one stating how many points that particular trait is worth. Simply read through the list, and give your character the appropriate number of points for each of the listed traits/characteristics displayed by your character.
When you reach the end of the list, add up all of your character's points and refer to the results at the very bottom of the test to see (approximately) where your character is on the Sue Scale.
Now, while you're taking this test please also take into account
Proofreading Tips #3: Indefinite PronounsProofreading Tips #3: Indefinite Pronouns1 year ago in Writing More Like This
Why are these important when proofreading? It's knowing when to use a singular or a plural verb. The "indefinite" part of these pronouns refers to the fact that the subject is undefined.
Many writers fall into the grammar trap by assuming that because the pronoun is referencing multiple entities, it requires a plural verb. Often it just "won't sound right" otherwise. But when these entities are referred to as a collective, a singular verb is the word you'll want to use. Examples of singular verb indefinite pronouns include:
Here are some examples of what I mean by a sentence "not sounding right" but it really is technically correct:
"Neither of the students wants to join her for lunch."
See that? Neither is actually the subject--"neither wants"--but because we add clarification that we are referring to students, it doesn't sound right. This can

Proofreading Tips #1: RedundanciesProofreading Tips #1: Redundancies1 year ago in Writing More Like This
Have you ever thought about how redundantly we speak in every day conversation? Sometimes this passes into our writing. For graduates especially, we are unfortunately trained to add extra "padding" into our text to reach a desired word count.
Word redundancies (known as pleonasms and sometimes given the nickname of "baby puppies") are one such way. Here is a list highlighting such phrases--avoid using these at all costs:

Tips to Remember for selling your ArtIntroductionTips to Remember for selling your Art4 months ago in Other More Like This
First things first, a quick introduction coming from myself. My name is Jade Choung, but I am better known as mzzazn / mzzy on the world wide web. I am an artist that primarily focuses on digital media. My art work produced for income is of the anime/manga genre. A majority of my publicity is derived from deviantART.com. I have held the position of Community Volunteer (CV) on this popular art website in the past. A community volunteer is pretty much a moderator. This means, there's a handful of tasks given to a CV on this website, but one that last a huge impact on me was selecting Daily Deviations ('spotlights' for art pieces that are reselected every day).This is important because it taught me to see what kind of art appeals to the greater public on deviantART.
As for my
Profile Pic: Making A Character Profile SheetProfile Pic: Making A Character Profile Sheet3 months ago in Writing More Like This
First of all, I freely admit that what I say isn't gospel. I am a total amateur at art and writing. I've learned everything that I know via the internet and a few drawing books. It's just that I appreciate all of the tutorials here on dA that have helped me out, and I want to put a little bit of my own methods back in.
Once upon a time, I ran out of things to complain about. And so it was with a heavy heart that I hung up my tutorial-guide hat forever, never to be heard from again…
Just kidding, my life just got massively complicated for a year or so and I didn’t have the time to write anything. I doubt I’ll ever stop complaining. It’s for your benefit. I promise.
Now, how about we smoothly segue into the topic of character profile sheets? For the sake of this guide, I’m talking about sheets in which people include an image of a character they’ve made, along with a slew of information about the character, includi
