This the the writer-artist OokamiKasumi from LJ, Yaoi Gallery, LiquidEros, and the LemmaSoft forum. Don't expect too much from me here. Most of my stories and art are way too adult for this place. If you want to see what I can really do, look me up on the other sites.

This account is merely to post my writing Tutorials, search for Photoshop resources, and browse the occasional art piece.

Current Residence: NC, USA
Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite style of art: Art Nouveau
Personal Quote: "I can resist anything--but temptation."

...I am wondering, do you want to read the next story I post either here or elsewhere? -- Friendly Amateur Writer

Thank-you for the invitation, but I don't do critiques. I am much, much too harsh a judge of fiction. I've made published authors cry after posting my opinion of their work. Seriously! One NYT's bestselling author still hates my guts. Mainly because her editor told her --on a public forum-- that I was Right.

The other problem is that I Absorb what I read and Use It later, especially if the idea is Good. Worse... I won't remember where the idea came from.

NEVER let a professional author read your unpublished work. All of us are Scavengers looking for a good idea. It's not deliberate! It's just a side-effect of the job.

You ARE what you READ. by Randy Ingermanson, "the Snowflake Guy. Reprinted with permission of the author. Years ago I was talking to a fellow novelist whom I’d just met and I asked him what his Top Five favorite novels were. This is a question I ask writers a lot. I’m always looking for great books, and one place to find them is on the Top Five list of another writer. He said, “I don’t read fiction.” This guy’s answer just about knocked me over. I couldn’t believe it. I asked him if he meant he didn’t read much fiction. No, he didn’t read any. He was a nonfiction kind of a guy. He

Do you have a tutorial on how to decide the title for your story? When I can't decide on a title, I fall back on how the professionals do it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ > No more than Three words, preferably Two. One word is considered ideal for a title. > You can have Four if the word is 'And,' 'The,' 'A,' or something similar. > One word for the Genre. > Any other words should stand for: -- the Emotion the story is trying to invoke -- a Character -- an Action or -- a Location Examples: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Star Trek (genre + emotion) Grimm (Genre & Emotion in one word.) Once Upon a Time (Genre) The Addams
