Advice · 7:57am Jul 9th, 2017

Hello,

Today, I could need your advice/opinion.

My proofreader had the suggestion that I should upload the remaining chapters on my two incomplete stories and publish the new onces should he take too long. I'm just unsure, given they're still not checked on errors, if it would be a good idea, but I don't want you to wait for too long.

So, my loyal watchers and anyone who is interesting in the incomplete stories, what do you think? Should I do it?

So, ummm... I think I'm getting evicted this month. · 1:01am Jan 3rd, 2018

I just got a letter from my apartment building today, informing me that my month-to-month lease is not being renewed. And with that, I have until the 31st to return the apartment to them. This came completely out of nowhere, and I was not expecting to be given such an ultimatum.

Well, so much for having high hopes for 2018, huh? :ajsleepy:

How many people are willing to donate to my Ko-Fi page? · 4:24am Jun 21st, 2019

I'm only asking because I need to raise about $300 to afford a new laptop (preferably something like a chrome book) & external hard drive. I know I already have a Patreon, but I wanted to put a new computer fund on a different format. I was thinking about offering various stories that could be donation goals, with the biggest story up for grabs when I get to three hundred. Now, I'm fairly certain which prompts could garter the biggest chances for success, but I'd also like to hear from you

CA: Outlines · 4:07pm Aug 19th, 2015

The outline is your story’s skeleton. We call it this because it provides us with the bare bones required to identify the beast we are trying to create. It is the framework you hang the picture you’re painting on. This topic of the outline has been updated for my newly revamped Cumulative Advice blog, because I’ve still been discussing it at length ever since that blog was first published.

The Nine Best Pieces of Writing Advice I Didn't Learn in School · 6:39am Sep 17th, 2016

The first thing you write will always be bad
I wish I had a professor or teacher just come out and say it. You can have a twelve step course to teach you how to code in C++, cook up a batch of applesauce, or calculate the optimum trajectory and force to kick someone in the groin. All of that can be repeated with very little margin of error, but that is because those skills are perceived by you and not others. They are based in hard science.

Writer's Block · 2:19am Apr 20th, 2016

I was looking here and, sadly the author won't read this since they haven't been heard from in over 2 years now. But it brings up a very important point about writer's block. Trying to write makes it worse.

Or,

Keeping Your Characters in Character

*Inhales and exhales deeply* Alright… Let’s do this. Recently, I wrote Twilight Sparkle a certain way, and the person who pre-read the story warned me about portraying her as… well, kind of a bitch. I mean, I had my reasons. It’s an AU story, so characters should act a little differently. I… don’t think he really agreed.

Cumulative Advice (Remastered) · 12:38pm Oct 19th, 2014

My cumulative advice for writers has been progressively expanding to an unmanageable point for a single blog post. It’s been taken down to undergo restructuring as to produce a more manageable format. This blog post will be the hub for all subsequent topics and advice. It is broken into sections with a link to the individual posts, while containing a short blurb about the topic in question. If you find a link that doesn't work yet, stay tuned, it will.

Bad Horse's Bad Advice--Avoiding comparisons · 9:02pm Nov 6th, 2017

For some reason, B_25 thought it might a good idea to ask me for advice.  The best advice I could give would probably be not to ask an unemployed ponyfic writer living on oatmeal and fimfiction notifications for advice.  But I could hardly turn down an invitation to indoctrinate someone with my opinions.  So here is the first installment of

How to Write More Good - Conflict · 5:30am Oct 5th, 2018

Almost everything you write where there’s a conflict between two characters can be thought of as a combination of a fight and a dialogue, and those two things are really different ways of describing the same thing. When two characters cross swords, it’s just a way of talking out their differences with action, and when two characters get into a screaming match or a debate, that’s no different from a boxing match.

And there are good and bad ways to write that.

RPG Tips: Give Players Property! · 8:45pm Jun 21st, 2018

I run roleplaying games every so often as I've been in the GM hotseat since I was seventeen when my first two DMs took major dumps on the game before quitting, lol. That's nearly ten years of me trying to learn how to be a better DM and lots and lots of study. At this point I could probably get paid to DM if I wanted to charge people.

WWBP: 36 Questions · 7:30am Sep 6th, 2017

The 36 questions

So I’m studying journalism at the moment, and one thing I’ve come across is a list called the 36 questions. The 36 questions are what I’ve been practicing for interviews, and the history behind them is interesting; they resulted from a study on love, how we fall in love, what causes it and how to maintain it.

How would you react if, in the Avengers, Captain America agreed to bomb a building full of innocent people just to get a few bad guys? How would you feel if Twilight started treating her friends like dirt for no reason? How would you feel if Superman was fighting Zod, not caring about the collateral damage and causing countless deaths?
