5 Tips for Cultural Diversity in Writing
5 Tips for Cultural Diversity in Writing
Anybody Can Write a Novel
Chapter 7 “From Story to Art” – Section 4 “Diversity”
With Links to Supplementary Material
Diversity—it almost seems a trap word meant for snaring unwitting people into a political debate. But why is it important to writing? Many will argue that it is a means of political correctness, popularity, and seeming hip to all your liberal friends at the coffee shop. While coffee shop creds are pretty important, the real reason for creating a diversity of religion, nationality, culture, ethnicity, philosophy, sexual orientation, gender, economic background, and any other sort, is that it gives a new layer of depth and realism to anything you write. By understanding the specific ways in which to apply diversity so that it adds this depth, we can also learn h

Tips and Tricks: Action Scene Basics

How to Draw Manga! Tips and Tricks: Action Scene Basics Introduction
Action scenes are a key part of any manga, whether they be a placid shoujo to a shounen mecha showdown. Action scenes are a dynamic action driven panel showing a fight or action against an inanimate object, or a passionate realisation. All of these follow a similar formula to create the action sequence.
Setting the Scene
When creating an action scene first consider the what action is being performed and how the two objects/subjects are interacting, i.e. show the force of the movement. For a person, it they are being hit, they will reaction in accordance to the force applied.A common way of achieving this is using the < shape to indicate where they are being hit. Take into consideration anatomy; if a person is being hit in the stomach they will produce a nice < shape with their head and shoulders coming forwards, whilst the hip becomes the poi

Big vs Skinny
You say that big is beautiful
That it's the new 'in thing'
You talk about how nice I'd look
If only I weren't thin
But will you come to realise
That it really isn't right
To say that we're not big enough
And take our name in spite?
You may have gotten insults
From some idiotic men
But when you call us skin and bones
You're just as bad as them
To say that big is beautiful
Is fine and true to say
To say that big is better
Is to think a hateful way
Nothing's better, nothing's 'right'
We're built to look unique
To say we're pretty, big and skinny
That's the peace I seek
It's easier to get along
When we're not starting fights
To see the wars of big vs skinny
Aren't such pretty sights
So lets find a happy medium
To stop this pointless hate
Let's have respect for everyone
No matter what their weight
And when we all abide by this
We'll see what happens then
A world full of less hate and fear
And more friendship again

.:How To Make And Keep Friends On DA:.
HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS
 Making friends is easy—just start a conversation! Don’t know what to talk about? Ask them what they’re up to, or try to find out what they like. It’s got a whole lot more depth than that (or should) but over time by getting to know each other little by little, you’ll realize you’re friends. I hate hearing about how the teen years are the awkward ugly years you just want to be over. But that’s only true if you allow it to be. If you’re socially awkward, and you have regular internet access, you don’t have to stay awkward. I hate it when people use it as an excuse when they’re online all the time.
 You might think you are a weirdo, freak, geek, or whatever social label you want to slap onto yourself. Well guess what? We all have labels. We can change what we don’t like about ourselves but we can’t change other people. Don’t go into a supposed friendship intending to change s

Forest Photography Tutorial
Animals, Plants, & Nature Week
Boing! Boing! Hello reader! Boing! Boing!
I am Nelleke, and I was asked to write an article about forest photography. Which is my favorite subject of photography! There is something about them that is timeless. Of course there's a reason forests get used so much as a backdrop in stories and movies... They can give you the feeling something magical is waiting just around the corner.

In this article I will discuss several points, some a bit longer than others. They are CompositionConditionsEquipment and Editing.
---
Composition
You might have seen a beautiful forest scene once, but noticed after taking a picture that it looks very different. A picture lacks the depth your eyes can see while walking in a forest. Which can result in a picture of just a flat bunch of trees.

Ways to use your art in non-artistic careers
What does this mean KovoWolf? Well let me indulge! Art can really be applied to any work force if you are in the position to be creative. Whether that's welding, photography, or a desk job.
Applying your artistic skills in a non-artistic work environment can be crucial and at times, benefit you in making you become a valuable asset to any company. So the purpose of this PE article is to shed some light on ways your artistic insight can benefit your employer and yourself! 
A Good Eye
It's safe to say that anyone who is artistic can bring a lot to the table in any career. You have the passion for things that are creative, unique and your own but can also follow guidelines and direction if need be. Think of it like coloring within the lines of a page in a coloring book. Being uniform but at the same time being totally unique.
One of the many things about bei
