Tipps gegen Mary SuesWas ist überhaupt eine Mary Sue?Tipps gegen Mary Sues2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Alles fing mit den Trekkies an. Dabei handelte es sich wohl um den ersten wirklich großen „Fandom" zu einem Medienprodukt überhaupt.
Also war es auch nicht verwunderlich das gerade diese Serie die erste bekannte – ich nenne es jetzt mal – Fanfiction schwämme erhielt. Und damit entstanden Tausende dieser Figuren. Ihren geläufigen Namen (die wenigen von ihnen heißen wirklich so) haben sie von einer Parodie einer Star Treck Fanfiction erhalten.
Die Mary Sue ist ein Charakter der von dem Fanfiction Autor für sein Werk erstellt wurde. Meist handelt es sich dabei um überidealisierte und übermächtige weibliche Wesen die jedoch keine wirklichen Charaktereigenschaften bieten können. Natürlich gibt es auch männliche Versionen dieses Prinzips, sie sind jedoch zugegebenermaßen selten. Deswegen werde ich mich einfach mal dreist auf die weibliche Version konzentrieren, behaltet aber im Hinterkopf „sueness" ist geschlechtsübergreifend.

I'm back from Otakuthon and I'm so tired...:iconpapmingplz:
There were so much more people than last year, I was shocked! I'm glad my cousin and friend where there to help us (my sis and myself) at my table if not we'd be dead by now. o-o We totally didnt expect to sell as much as we did: man, we had to go reprint four times in the weekend since some prints got sold out so fast. (especially the Free! and SnK ones.....omg)
We didn't get to walk around as much as we wanted, so we missed a lot of awesome cosplays and didn't get to see all the artists' tables and merchants at the con. :iconsawbplz: But it was still fun!
Here are some of the few photos we took:

Nsio's take on critiquesHello there people,Nsio's take on critiques3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks for all the comments on my latest poll about your handling of critique. Many good points emerged in those conversations, I really enjoyed reading them. I thought writing a bit about my take on critiques. I have broken this journal into 4 parts, feel free to read what you find most interesting:
1. How I learned to deal with critique
2. What did I learn about myself
3. How I handle critique
4. What you can try doing to learn handling critique
1. How I learned to deal with critique
For starters, I showed my drawings to my friends a lot on my early days. Although they did provide some critique, it was mostly about joking: "she looks like she was just raped lolololo". Either that, or just plain praising. That said, I didn't get very useful critique, so I mostly laughed along my friends and ignored their negative words. I had quite high self-esteem (read: I was naive) back then, so I didn't get discouraged from that. In fact, I believed I

Writing a Six Word Story3wyl recently posted a SixWordStories journal asking members how they write their stories, and she has kindly allowed me this opportunity to talk in a little more detail about my particular writing process. This blog isn’t meant to be a tutorial or even suggestions as to how to write your own. It’s really just a chance for me to discuss a subject that’s become very important to me.Writing a Six Word Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, to start off with, I like to read other people’s work. It’s what I did before I ever began writing my own six word stories, and I still do it to inspire myself. Sometimes someone else’s story will directly lead to one of my own. (And then I credit story and author in my notes.) But generally it’s not as definite as that. Seeing what others are doing sparks off ideas and sends me in a fresh direction.
Prompts assist me a great deal as well. The m

Remember getting your art exposed is an important role in selling your art. There are many ways and sites for your to not only show off your art but sell as well.
Try some online store:
These are free to list
Yardsellr: http://yardsellr.com/ Easy to list and sell. The blocks are kinda annoying but its gives you a etsy and ebay importer and it has an exporter for styl.ly and D&K. You can also link your email and facebook page, make tweets, and pins. plus you get bonus money to spend on the site
These cost some money to list and possble other fees;
Freedom of speech and the abuse of itYesterday all was normal. Except for this stupid cold I have been fighting since I went to Disneyland and subsequently returned.Freedom of speech and the abuse of it1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In my mail box I received the normal mail; an add for local restaurants and some tax return info, oh and a dead fetus.
Or more precisely several photos of dismembered dead fetus'. The photos are followed up with a lovely slander line about how a local government official running for office in our small city of 1.5 million people supports abortion and if we are disgusted by this smear campaign we need to contact her and burn her at the stake.
For the record, I do not care which side of the abortion issue you are.
This journal is not about that mine field laden topic. My journal is pissed about the abuse of Freedom of Speech. It is about those zealot, spineless, no-talent hack people that hide behind FOS and use it like some propaganda announcment speaker in the wasted husks of cities in the middle of World War II!
