So society and pressures aside, now I'm going to talk about what it's like diving into the industry.
First and foremost, get your shit done. So now you have a complete first chapter. I say that in one sentence but it would normally take a newb 2-5 months to finish a piece. One you will bring to the publishers and editors. Generally they want you to have 32 pages. <-- I'm not sure why but this is the standard. 16-32-48 are the norm.
It's very easy to get an appointment whether it be Shueisha or Kodansha etc. You can set up an appointment where an editor will look at your work. And it's simple, if they think it's sellable then they assign to you an editor. That editor will either make you rewrite your story or do a completely new one. You don't have to have it figured out til the ending but they at least want you to tell them where your plot is going. You are very lucky and talented if you reach

A Friend in Need
... is a friend indeed. Seriously though, one of my friends desperately needs to boost her personal finances. Like, a lot. So if you've been yearning for a watercolour commission, and you've got some spare change rattling around in that pocket, visit and help out my :iconshinatarou: I wouldn't push you, and you really needn't if you don't want, but this is her future we're talking about here. Sorry for the guilt-tripping and mixed messages, hah.
Now, let's play a game
I like to call it the 'mention game'.
It's an idea that I stole from , which was in turn inspired by .
The aim of the game is to mention a number of deviants who you feel are unappreciated, unloved, or simply don't get enough traffic through their page, and who you think are amazing

Oh, guys. Do you remember those little contests I used to host back when I had money for prizes? Me too. And I miss them. So I've decided to ignore my oft-dire financial situation and bring them back.
The primary purpose of these contests is to have art-based fun. While there is obviously that element of competition there, the idea is to enjoy the process of creating your art rather than worrying about winning. It's not about perfection, it's not about skill, it's about doing. You have
Good Byes On The First Day Of SchoolI was walking on my way to class and I could literally hear my heart beat pounding like it was on mega phones. I don't know what I'm so afraid of anymore. The troubles I've faced before are now of the past but I still feel the nervousness every time I walk through those doors.More Like This
I wasn't planning on coming in late but I always time my arrival just before the bell. This time I guess I walked a little too slow and by the time I got there every one was already collecting forms in front of the room. I was really pleasantly surprised that there was a specific seat that was unoccupied between my usual group of people. I some how felt like I was welcome and had a place I belong.
We greeted each other like it was just yesterday where we last left off. It's been actually more than a month though. Every body looked so familiar and I didn't meet any unpleasant faces or situations. The only thing that bothered me in class was probably the noise. Some people don't really know how to tame their own vo

Looking back now..XD...My artwork then was pretty bad...I used to draw people's necks really long...(like giraffes..XD) and the faces like circles..XD...^^'...
But I was good at writing imaginative stories then...and I once wrote a one about fairies....(which was really long.......and went over several Microsoft word pages XD...^^' That side of me hasn't changed ..at all....( ^^' try reading my ICT essays for college...most of them are over 1000 words X'D)
