The Chronology of Storytelling
Imagine you're reading to a live audience. It can be as big or small as you'd like. It can be your writing or someone else's. It doesn't matter. Indulge yourself in the fantasy. So you're reading to a live audience. They're enraptured. They're engrossed. They're generating a movie in their heads as you weave your tale. Imagine how important every word you produce is to these movies. Every detail you provide adds another layer. They smell the flowers. They feel the roughness of the brick. They see the vivid colors of the clothes.
And then you require they perform time travel to make the movies accurate.
Wait. What?
The chronology, or order of events, in a story is something I've been focusing on a lot in my writing lately. I'm not just talking about the overall chronology. There's obviously a beginning, middle, and end to a story. You progress from one event to the next. Things happen in chronological order. That's how, y'know, stories make sense. That's also

Creating a balanced character
What is a well balanced character?
A well balanced charater is one you would believe is really existing. Creating a character like this may seem not easy at all and sometimes even impossible but it is all about relating information about your character, a bit knowledge of human nature and psychology with each other.
If you manage to master this combination, you will be able to create characters that can come to life on their own.
Sounds good  but pretty complex, right? Let me show you.
First of all: A character should always be the result of many factors being combined as I mentioned above.
-> Never say the creation progress is done when you miss out e.g. on important events in their backstory or did not mention their family/parents!
You can start out with different aspects and then build up the remaining parts very often but to keep some structure let's start with your characters backstory.
What happens to you in your life forms your personality and character.

A Writer's Guide: Believable Characters
I know a lot of you out there are aspiring-writers (I’m one myself!) and sometimes we get so caught up in this “must publish!” attitude that we get lost in our stories along the way. Sometimes there comes a point when we stare at our half-finished novel and say “I’m stuck. “ Usually these moments happen when we don’t know where we’re going next with our story, and usually that’s because somewhere along the line we’ve strayed off the path and we aren’t quite sure how to get back.
One of the things that you may find helpful if you’ve never done it before is to take a really in-depth look at your characters and the world they live in. Characters are really the backbone of our stories. You can carry an entire story on the shoulders of a character without much plot (memoirs anyone?), but you can’t carry a plot without some great characters. So, to help you guys out, I wanted to write an article on things you shoul

WWWOOOOOOHHHHHOOOOOO BOOYEAH!!!!!!!
I've passed my exam!:happybounce: Woohooooo! #1 Winner Party Party Party Party Party Party  

I'm now officially a Yoga teacher Yay!#1 Jawdrop  

l did reasonably during the exam, the exam was to show my teaching skills being put in to practice and taking a class and being assessed on how well I did it, a practical exam on how well you cue a pose and the benefits of each pose and things you watch out for, I did have a couple of cock upsStupid OMG! frustrated like their was one pose I should not have included and should have had the proper one, that and  how you use your words when cuing, and one or two bits of music weren't right just a bit busy and loud for yoga when you need calm and gentle    

Overall I felt awesome and excited at the same time on Friday, when it was my turn to teach, well you can only imagine I was ecstatic all I could imagine was a SAR 500 in the new streamline casing and Overland paint job just coupled up to the Overland and all eyes watching, I could feel the energy moving through the body warm and fuzzy and tingly all over, the hairs on the back of my neck were standing up. Yeah I was a bit shaky to start with and those little jitters to start with but once the music kicked in and I acclimatized I settled down and became the teacher and went through the motions.

Right down to the last bit of music in relaxation and finish and to get the thumbs up   Deadpool - OK and a whisper "You've passed Cam" Yeah you can only imagine I was over the moon, ecstatic and a roar with emotion going off like fireworks inside and a 500's whistle going off going cock-a-doodle do like the engine drivers did.
I'm still riding high on that feeling.    

Where from here? well this is only the initial now the hard work begins I've got a bit of work to do, one is to correct my alignment of my body and give my body some love it needs, because your student indirectly follow you, two I need to get some experience under my belt so for the next 6 months or so I'm going to be assisting in at where I do yoga with the teachers I know and do regular classes with. Well I'm going to talk with head yoga teacher and work something out and go from their.

So yeah all that hard work has paid off and now I'm qualified teacher and I'm still pinching myself over it
