NANOWRIMO Warm Up Prompts!
I thought I'd share some prompts that I will be using for little warm ups during Nanowrimo. I often find that I have a hard time sitting down day after day and diving right into my story, so I thought I'd start off by beating around the bush a little. These exercises aren't meant to be used in your final story- they're just to get the gears turning! (Plus, I find it easier to start writing when I'm not worried about what somebody will think when they read it.)
Please keep in mind, these prompts were created with my (modern-ish non-fantasy) story in mind, so you may have to tweak them! You can change them however you see fit.
A day from a side character's perspective, including an introspective moment where they consider whether or not it’s worth it their relationship with the main characters is worth the trouble.
A day from a side character's point of view, in which they battle with some internal demons and demonstrate a coping mechanism.
A detailed description of an important lo

Character Development OC Questionnaire
I see a lot of "OC questionnaires" and stuff that are really silly and goofy... and that's great, but I'd really love a serious one to help with character development. I also wanted on that asks the actual character the questions, so they can respond. So here is my attempt to create a useful questionnaire to fill out using your characters. I made this with the intention of using one character, but feel free to choose several characters and rotate them between questions. 

The most important part of this is to be thorough. I tried my best to stay away from "yes/no" questions, but elaborate. If your character is one that doesn't speak much, feel free to include their unspoken thoughts as well. 
Also, I tried to stay vague so that you can fill this question out with your 16 year old high school student OC, but also with your 23 year old Ninja Warrior from feudal Japan. And probably your random closed species giraffe/shark hybrid too.

How to Complete a 100 Theme Challenge
Hey guys, it's been a while! Thanks for all of the support on my writing guides and whatnot <3 
So, I've noticed that 100 Theme challenges are pretty popular. There are tons on Deviantart to choose from and all of them offer many great themes and ideas for getting those creative juices flowing. Even I have grabbed one and drawn out "introduction" (which is often the first one). Occasionally I do two in a row. The next day I might do the third. Then a few days later I'll do a fourth. About a month later I remember that I had planned on doing the one hundred theme challenge. I look at the ninety six themes remaining, promptly decide that it's far too overwhelming, and give it up.
I feel fairly confident in saying I'm not the only one that does that. So, then... how do you finish a 100 Theme Challenge?
Step one: Break it up! 
One hundred drawings is a lot. How many do you have in your gallery now? How long did it take you to make that many? If you did one drawing a day

Writing Guide: Your Character's Relationships

   Hello again! It's been a while, but I'm back with another writer's guide. As always, I should remind you that I'm not a professional and everything here is just my own thoughts and opinions. Please keep that in mind!

    As with normal life, stories often have romantic relationships. Sometimes the characters are together before the story even begins, and sometimes the characters get together throughout the course of the story. Either way, here are some tips and notes on your character's relationships!
Creating Relationships
The Evil Girlfriend-That-Must-Go

    Scenario: Mary really wants to go out with Jon, but Jon's evil girlfriend Elizabeth is in the way.

    It's really easy to write about how evil Elizabeth is, especially if you're writing from Mary's point of view. Of course she's evil! She's in the way to Mary's happy relationship. Ri

Writing Lesson: Naming Your Character
    Your character's name is one of the most important decisions you have to make when writing a story. There are tons of resources for naming your characters (baby name websites being my personal favorite) but there are also many things you should take into consideration. Here are some do's and don'ts in no particular order. 
Similar names for twins  I read an article on names recently that expressly forbid the use of matching or similar twin names because it was "overdone". While yes, naming your twins Jayden and Kayden can be a bit tacky sounding, the truth is that people do it. A lot. I've personally met a pair of identical twins named Kirsten and Kristen. Do I think their parents are crazy? A little, but when you're choosing names for your twins, it's hard not to look for rhyming or alliteration. For writers, my only suggestion is to make them visually different enough that readers can tell them apart. Jace and Jackson are easy tw

Writing Lesson: Character Traits
It's come to my attention as of late that there are a few traits that people give their characters for no other reason than making their character unique. I thought I would just ignore it, but then they started popping up everywhere. I mean everywhere. I looked through the deviations in a group yesterday and saw reoccurring "traits" that make me want to tear my hair out. So this handy guide is here to tell you what's been done to death and when (if ever) it's still okay to use it. I am by no means a professional, but I certainly hope you'll take some of this to heart.
Please keep in mind that these are all just opinions, really. I am not telling you that you can't do these things! (Not that I have the authority to do that anyway). More than anything, these are just things to take into consideration when creating a character for a novel.
Physical Traits
Heterochromia. This is the condition where one's eyes are two different colors.

Writing Lesson: Your Character's Parents
    While I am not a professional by any means, I have been writing for many years and, more recently, beta-reading as well. In all of my experience, I've noticed that a lot of to-be authors follow the easy trends and miss out on some great story telling opportunities. Hopefully this guide will help you improve your story and learn that the easy way out isn't always the best! If you would like more writing guides and tutorials, check out the description below.
    For this "Quick Tips" entry, I'm going to focus on an important part of back story: parents.
    *Please note! I understand that, unfortunately, not everyone reading this has parents. If your parents have passed away or are otherwise absent, please forgive anything written here that might be considered upsetting. These scenarios are for fictional parents only and when I say "dead", I do not mean it to sound nearly as insensitive as it

10 Easy Tips to Improve Your Writing.
These are some very basic things for new writers. If you see somebody that could benefit from this, send them a link! :D
1. Use correct punctuation, spelling, and grammar everywhere, not just in your writing.
I see a lot of writers that text-talk in conversations, leave out punctuation, don't capitalize words, etc. Even if you're just shooting a message to a friend on Facebook remember those rules! Not only does this create good habits, but I find that it leads to better and more intelligent conversations
2. Learn those tricky rules like "laid/lay" and "effect/affect".
A lot of people slack off on these. Personally, I have to look up things like this all the time because I just don't remember. They're annoying, but learning the differences can help you out in your writing and in real life. Also, the difference between "good" and "well" is a must-know! I hear this used incorrectly every single day.
3. Paragraphs and when to use them.
Obviously your wr

Writers Block and How to Kill It
With NaNoWriMo coming up soon, I thought I'd finally spit out a writers block help guide. This can be used any time and for any blocks! Let's begin.
        A lot of writers block cases come just from environment. For example, for a long time my computer was a desktop. Not very portable, right? Well, this meant that if I wanted to do any writing, I had to sit down in the same spot every time and write. I had to deal with the same environment, the same clutter, the same chair, the same sitting position, etc. This doesn't help! So consider your environment. (For suggestions that require moving elsewhere, use a laptop or a good old fashioned notebook with a pen or pencil)
Clean up your workspace. Organize it. Rearrange it. Make it different than last time you sat there.Light a candle or incense, or even freshen up your room with an air freshener. Go in another room. So

Don't Give In
       “Math test?” I questioned, dropping my trey next to my friend Carlson and sliding into the seat beside him. A corndog hung out of his mouth, temporarily forgotten as he scribbled an equation onto the paper before him. Math books and study guides took up more than his fair share of the table, and I shoved one aside to make room for my milk carton.
       “Yeah,” he grunted, finally remembering his lunch. He wolfed down most of his corndog and dropped the remainder back on his plate, then returned to his studies.
       Assuming I wouldn’t get much of a conversation out of him, I turned to Emma across the table. “How has your day been so far?” I sampled my tater tots and found them to be disappointing.
       “All right I guess. I didn’t get anything done in English because everyone kept throwing paper at the queer kid next to me. Between him sulkin

Writing Lesson: Writing Conversations
While I am not a professional by any means, I have been writing for many years and, more recently, beta-reading as well. In all of my experience, I've noticed that a lot of to-be authors make some really silly, simple mistakes. In an effort to help out, I'm going to be putting up a few "Quick Tips" that might help you improve your writing and get more readers.
For this "Quick Tips" entry, I'm going to focus on conversation and the use of quotations. Here we go :D
Punctuation in Quotations
When a character is speaking, their statement is often followed by, "she said" or, "he mumbled". However, you have to keep in mind that this is still part of the sentence!
Incorrect: "Wait, I have to tie my shoe." she said.
Correct: "Wait, I have to tie my shoe," she said.
Even though her statement ended, the sentence carried on to tell the reader that it was she who spoke. That's how it works with a period, but with exclamation marks and question marks, many people choose to ignore t

Tyler's Fight
       As fast as he was running, he should have expected to trip. When he did it startled him, and he tried to protect his face as he went down on the rough gravel. He hit the ground hard, but managed to roll and dissipate some of the force. It didn’t take long for his pursuers to catch up.
       “We told you running was pointless, slut.” Josh, the group’s leader, kicked Tyler hard in the shin as he struggled to get up. Tyler didn’t see Raine with the group, for which he was glad. He gritted his teeth and stood.
       “Why won’t you just leave me alone? I want nothing to do with you or Raine,” he begged, his heart pounding. He stepped back and winced at the pain in his leg. He really wasn’t made for physical confrontation. 
       “You never should have touched her in the first place.” Josh spat on Tyler’s shoes and turned his b

Kyouya's Swordfight
       Kyouya stood as still as the dead, poised like a snake about to attack. Breath in. Breathe out. There are only three. The men circled him, swords ready and eyes watching, waiting for him to make a move. His hands hovered over his own sword, ready to unsheathe it at any second, but he did not.
       “Will you stand and fight, or come with us?” The smallest of the man asked loudly.
       The man to his left scoffed. “What chance does he have to fight? Come along, boy.” Kyouya studied his hard face and square nose.
       The third man said nothing, distracted by his superiors and their taunts. In the split second that he was distracted by them, Kyouya struck out with his hand and opened his throat. The man gurgled as blood sprayed from his neck, eyes rolling back into his head. Before he hit the ground, Kyouya had pulled the small knife back up into his sleeve.

OC Exercise: The Best Cure for Writers Block
'Ello, Kitsune here. As many of you know, I'm currently working on a novel that is taking over my life. Recently, I've been having trouble keeping the personalities of my characters (who have changed a lot over the near eight years that I've been working on my novel) completely straight. I know my main character well enough, since the story follows her life closely, but sometimes I feel like I don't know everyone else in my world enough. 

I'm sure you've all seen the character profiles before. (Name, age, height, physical description, likes, dislikes, etc.) I have filled out more of those than I care to admit, but they very seldom help. Therefore, I came up with this "OC Exercise" to help you get to know your characters better. The best part is, it will even get you some writing practice!

:lightbulb: I highly suggest posting your finished products on deviantart and requesting a critique. This will not only help with your actual writing, but it mi
