Introducing Prose BasicsOnce again, the Literature Community is taking over projecteducate and this time it's to work on our prose writing. What better way than to go back to basics, right?Introducing Prose Basics7 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
What is prose?
Okay, maybe not that basic. Over the course of the week, we're going to be educating (or re-educating) you on the fundamentals of prose. Simple things that we overlook, but hear about constantly when receiving feedback and critique. You know, the flow of your story, crazy text walls, your dialogue and it's effectiveness, point of view and NOT switching it in the middle of the story, even how to start your story to have an effective hook and a bunch more but we don't want to give away all the surprises!
And since I don't have fancy schmancy GIFs to share :
I keep six honest serving men. (They taught me everything I know); Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who. -Rudyard Kipling

February 2014 : Inevitable PiracyHi Everyone. It's me zamius, I speak in behalf of mazjojo and the rest of BMP crew.February 2014 : Inevitable Piracy6 months ago in Personal More Like This
We are facing an issue again, this time about leakage of UNCENSORED PRODUCTS.
We would like to know everyone's thoughts and suggestions on this one, especially our loyal buyers. So please if you have your opinion, do post a comment and/or send a note to me.
Piracy is inevitable, as much as we deny it, all of us have done it one way or another. This is the same when our products are repeatedly leaked into various websites for free, some of those hosting websites, even open up donation pools, making money out of an artist / circle's hardwork. That is really no way to support the artist themselves. We aren't called starving artists for nothing. Although, it's already a culture in internet, and there's nothing much we can do about it. Despite our efforts to put a password system to our files, some are really just clever and resilient enough to extract all the images without the waterma

Conclusions I've Come To...I'm sick of worrying about what others think of me....all it does is make me defensive and paranoid. All my life I've lived to please others (my parents, the church, society) and it seems I keep failing. So from now on I'm going to just live and stop striving to be what everyone else wants me to be...I'm going to be ME.Conclusions I've Come To...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes I will love others, as it's kind of unavoidable...I love others naturally, it doesn't take much effort because I wear my heart on my sleeve...but I need to know that if I live only to please them, all I'll become is miserable. Lately I've been feeling like everything I think and do are wrong....not anymore. I felt like that way too often during my high school years and it made me neurotic.
Yes, I want to better myself, but not at the expense of my own individuality and creativity. The way I think is the way I think, and I can't change it without feeling oppressed and uncomfortable (this m

When Being Human Just Isn't Enough:icontechgnotic:When Being Human Just Isn't Enough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The allure of Anthro Art is obvious to anyone who ever “owned” and loved a pet. (Only those who have never loved and shared lives with a pet speak of pet “ownership”!) Once a bond has been formed between a human and an animal the rigid distinctions between what is human and what is animal begin to fracture.
The definition of “being” becomes suddenly far more expansive. And soon the bonded human begins feeling spiritual affinities with the “animal” that are undeniably powerful and as “real” as any felt with other humans. The desire to leave all the lies and hypocrisies of human society behind and join in with a simpler and somehow more “honest” society of different beings in nature can become palpable and intense. “The grass is always greener…” and, oh!, to scamper across it on four liberating paws!

I saw this post going around on tumblr, warning about a virus being sent around on deviantART. I figured making a journal about it here would be more convenient for those who don't have tumblr, so I copy and pasted the message (and source) below.
If you get a note like this from this guy, ignore it. Delete it. If you ask what his daughter likes, he'll try sending you a very suspicious folder with random art in it, as well as a virus.
Please spread this around because someone who doesn't know any better can really wind up getting screwed over. Thank you!

Harley Quinn Part 2There's been a LOT of talk about this contest. http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151 Most of it negative, some of it positive, and some of it trying VERY hard to justify it. I've already said my peace about it in 3 consecutive comics which you can read here:Harley Quinn Part 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
But outside that there's still a lot of debate going on and I wanted to touch upon it. First up, there were a lot of people trying to justify "why" she was committing suicide. A lot of these people suggested things like "she's a crazy character and she's unstable so of course she would do something like this" or "she'd probably do this if the joker left her." And while those people DO have a point... all of it is rendered null and void when the creators of the contest come right out and say that the point of these attempted suicides was a tongue-in-cheek gag at the awful shit they were gonna put Harley through. As in, she sees what they're gonna write a

Black and White Mindset?After the government shutdown post I made yesterday I started thinking about something... Is it at all possible that the reason why internet opinions and interactions are so blindly polarizing and extreme is because the American political system is so polarizing and extreme? Could the reason discourse online is so black and white be a result of being seeped in such black and white political mindsets for so long that we have difficulty breaking out of the mold?Black and White Mindset?11 months ago in Personal More Like This
