There are myriad ways to avoid completing a project, and one of them is to become the eternal student. Always learning, always improving, so that future hypothetical story keeps getting better and better... While somehow never making its way into reality.
But on the other hand, it might help to know a bit about swimming before jumping overboard. So where do you draw the line? What do you absolutely need to know before getting your feet wet with a story?
I can't speak for anyone else. But when I started Dreamkeepers, I didn't know jack about story.
I didn't know about inciting events, verisimilitude, thematic armature, pinch points, none of it.
Quite simply, I did not know what the hell I was doing. Which makes for an interesting question about my first books.
Why don't they suck?
Professional reviewers have said "the writing was absolutely golden," that they were "completely blown awa

Fundraising Adoptables [Updated 11/03/14]Greetings and Salutations to all Citizens of Internetopia!Fundraising Adoptables [Updated 11/03/14]2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Edited November 3rd 2014
I'm just going to say.. That you guys are wonderful and that I love every single one of you. I've been getting caught up in trying to finish a few commissions before continuing my adoptables which is set to go up fairly soon. ..But first. I need to thank a few people who have been unbelievably supportive since this all started.
CosmicDerp, Eyan, kittyline13, PapaSamOLD, and PurrfectlyKind
I've stated since the beginning of this that I'm not very good with accepting donations in exchange for nothing. It doesn't feel right and it's always very difficult for me to be on the receiving end of such treatment. That's hard earned money that I'm sure they themselves are in need of and yet despite my consistent protests they continued to go above and beyond what I wanted them to do and have already helped me reach 1/4th of my goal.
That's right! Not

PE: ARTIST TOOLBOX: Water-based Media!Waterbased Media!PE: ARTIST TOOLBOX: Water-based Media!10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I love water-based media! What is “waterbased media” you say? Well that would be any kind of water-soluble ink or paint! There are many advantages to working with water-based media, the main one being that many water-based paints and inks are not extremely dangerous to work with (in comparison to oils which are not good to get on your hands people…wear gloves!), there is no need for special clean up or a specific work environment (on that note, please PLEASE do not paint with oils in your living room). Another advantage to working with water-based media is quick drying times. This is a pro especially if you do illustrative works. A third pro to water-based media is that they are somewhat cost effective for us starving artists. Here are some types of water-based media: watercolor, ink, latex paint, and acrylic paint. My favorite type of water-based media is watercolor. Tip: you don’t need t

PE Prose Basics: Varying SentencesVarying Your SentencesPE Prose Basics: Varying Sentences11 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
When I was in college, I took an early morning Anthropology class. I had to wake up at five to catch the bus. Ugh. Yeah, I'm not a morning person. But I did it. The first day, our instructor stood before us and starting reading from the textbook. Word for word. Completely monotone. I was asleep within ten minutes. The rest of the week was the same; arrive, begin listening to the instructor, pass out. I had to drop the class and get whatever refund I could, while I could. It was my worse class experience there.
Most people know that in public speaking, the person talking needs to vary their tone and speech patterns and such to hold their audience's attention. They need to have a rhythm. Otherwise, they'll end up putting the audience to sleep. The same applies to writing. If you use the same sentence length or structure continually, you'll be the literary equivalent of my instructor.
