.:Writer's Tips On How To Stay Creative:.
Overview of maintaining character/story creativity:
• The first and most important thing to understand is that originality in the world as a whole isn’t dead, and creativity can only be lost in you if you let it. Sure it may seem like nothing’s original anymore due to the fact that most people are too lazy to even try. And this trend continues to discourage creativity in the sense of making it seem impossible to come up with something memorably original. So I’m here to encourage and to remind you that not only does originality exist, but it is very possible to keep coming up with new and creative things as you get older; it'll just be a little bit harder.
• When you’re young, creativity can seem in abundance as your brain is still developing, trying to figure out all the little details of processing and assessing information. But as you become an adult, your brain specializes, and loses brain cells. To avoid falling into a monotonous rut of unorigina

Bad Habits - Levi x Tomboy? Reader
“Get your feet off the table {first}!”
The [e/c] eyed girl looked at the short grey-eyed man in disdain. “No”
“Idiot I said put them down” Levi narrowed his eyes in annoyance.
You yawned, “Nah I’m quite comfortable”
A vague throbbing on his temple started to form.  “Damn brat…”
Why did he love you again? Oh right because you were the only girl who had enough gall to retort back to the Corporal.
It was what drew him to you. You weren’t like all the other girls who flinched at his mere presence; instead you blatantly ignored him and when he demanded your attention you would treat him as any another cadet.
It wouldn’t be a lie if at times he wished he could strangle you for being so frustratingly stubborn. But what really pushed him on edge were your bad habits.
Don’t get me wrong you were cute. So cute in fact that many boys were attracted to you even Captain Erwin Smith.

.:Types Of Mary Sues And How To Fix Them:.
Personally, I would say if you find yourself creating any of these fantastical Mary Sues, just omit them and have done with it. But, in case you are dead set on keeping that character in the story world, I’ll share my two cents on how to subvert that individual sue trope with advice based off a realistic approach to that character.
• The number one common sue I see is the girl next door. She’s just your typical good girl. She has her quirks, but they’re irrelevant. She has a few pointless little hobbies or skills that are introduced before the writer actually vomits up a plot for her. Her social life is in ruins, but she’s usually got a nice family to back her up. They mean absolutely nothing though. All she cares about in the world is winning the approval of crazy high school teen stereotype popular girls and/or good looking guys with no personality. For some unfathomable reason, she adores these people and would go through heck and back to get them to li

A lot of times when a story on DA is especially awful, I'll click on the author's avatar and find out they are from Poland, the Phillippines, or Chile. That is - their story is written in english, but english isn't their native language.
If a writer has a good grasp of english, that's not a problem. However, that is rarely the case - far from having an understanding of english, it's clear they've used google-translator to convert the text.
That would be like me writing a story in my native english, then google-translating it into japanese, then posting it on an asian fiction site - for ACTUAL Japanese people to read. Does that sound like a good idea? Do you think a japanese reader would like to be subjected to the terrible, unreadable grammar this would produce?
Here's a recent example I found from a dA author (I've cha
