Music? · 7:05am Jan 6th, 2018

So, one thing that I would really like to be able to include, but I have no idea just how to do so for the most part, is musical numbers. Not just using songs that I know and just transcribe into the fic, but also something more original. I mean, uplifting musical numbers are just part of life in the source material. I can get away with not doing them, but it also feels kinda sad to have a character whose name literally has the word "sing" in it not take part in the various musical features

FiMFiction Tutorials 3: Staying in Character · 3:14pm Aug 15th, 2019

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?

The god scale in fiction · 1:39am Apr 4th, 2018

Gods aren't all, all-knowing/ all-powerful beings, in both myths and modern fiction there's a scale of godly power and I will show my interpretation of this scale here for anyone to use for reference.

Writing Adventure fics · 2:38am Apr 1st, 2015

Hi-ho, Merc here! It's been a while since I've actually talked about writing on a writing-based website—most of them lately have been about vidya games or how awesome tits are.

Sometimes how awesome vidya gaem tits are, in a divine infusion of tastes. It's like a metaphorical PB&J of combos

Feel free to trot over to the site and check it out!

CA: Making a Character Wrong · 7:50pm Aug 27th, 2015

Another addition to the Cumulative Advice blog I've been writing; this one focuses on misconceptions as a core idea. The most fundamental misconception in all of literature occurs when the reader assumes that if a character believes (or says) a thing, then that thing must be true. This assumption undermines the very concept of characters as people, since it goes against the first rule of humanity:

I Need Some Advice, Will You All Be So Nice? · 2:40am Aug 1st, 2015

I have an idea, a pretty good one, I bet

Where Trixie duels Twilight without the amulet

The only problem, you see, is i want to make her win.

To do that, ugh, I know not where to begin.

Twilight's league is nowhere in Trixie's reach.

It's farther than Kansas from a beach.

Somebody please give me some tips to make this work.

To make her win, not by cheating or any unfair perk.

Something I don't understand... · 7:55pm Jan 31st, 2016

Why does everyone use sites/document creators to write their stories, and then save on a computer that you can't take the data from? The way you create chapters here works just as well, if not better, for writing because it's essentially Google Docs, but you don't need to do any transferring to get it here. I write 100% of the fics I have posted here with the site's own system because it works just fine. When you create a new chapter, it isn't that hard to just write the story there because

Wholesome Rage: Procrastination is Character Building · 5:15am Feb 21st, 2019

Horizon liked this one, and I like Horizon, so it must be good.

About the small moments and touches that make the whole thing worthwhile to read. A call to action to write fluff, faff and meander with precision.

Special thanks to Pearple Prose on his miraculous advice on what writing advice guides usually lack:

Great writing advice and a plug · 12:21am Jun 23rd, 2019

Heya readers!

You might have noticed I'm offering a bit more writing advice in the form of answering questions given to me!

Well, I didn't get one! However, Heartshine, lover of the pony based wasteland apocalypse and bunnies, has a wonderful blog post that everyone who is an active writer should consume voraciously !

I just added my fic to the Pokemon Fics group without asking anyone I hope that's not breaking any group rules · 11:49pm Sep 2nd, 2017

Alola to a New World! is just about done with the third day! A bit embarrassing, considering that I've been writing it for almost a year now...

I was going to submit this fic to Zeus so it can be sorted into canon after the last chapter I just posted, but I underestimated just how much material I would need to sort out by then. We'll see if I can straighten this out by next update, which will be September 16th.

Body Types in Fiction · 2:34am Apr 13th, 2019

So I've noticed that a lot of people here in the west have gone about changing the way characters look in comic books, artwork, and stories lately and calling it 'realistic'. However, I must stress that a lot of these changes are not actually based on realistic body types for that character but rather they are based on what's currently politically correct. I won't go too much into the politics behind it as I want to tackle the actual body types themselves.

Advice For New Writers · 6:34am Jan 11th, 2016

Every writer has that feeling of wanting to make the story of their dreams. Or at least a story they know people would love. So you sit down, and start typing away the amazing title that will advertise your work with intriguing words. Then you write down the descriptions, and click on all of those pony photos at the end, finally hitting the save option. You bring yourself to your story's page, creating a chapter, and of course begin writing. This is of course is where you encounter the

CA: Three Roles · 5:18pm Feb 27th, 2016

This extension of my Cumulative Advice for New Writers Blog helps distinguish and disambiguate three frequently used terms: Pre-Reader, Proof-Reader, and Editor. The goal of which is to help identify what each term means (through reference), so that when a writer is seeking help they know exactly what kind of help they need, based on the kind of work they want help doing. Or, alternatively, the kind of help they can

Some more bizarre writing advice: Character Psych · 7:33pm Feb 3rd, 2016

Outside of a formal literary setting, WRITE HOWEVER YOU WANT.
