Being a Better Writer: The Meandering Story · 9:55pm Feb 29th, 2016

This post can also be found at Unusual Things

Today we're tackling a topic directly. Head on. We'll be discussing a problem I often see throughout literature, especially work from new writers or in the area of fanfiction (and both are probably bolstered by the fact that most television deliberately commits this act in order to pad out run-time).

Obstacles vs Disempowerment · 10:34am Oct 22nd, 2015

An obstacle is something that comes between a character and something they want.

Disempowerment is the removal of agency from a character.

Well, not quite.

Writing Advice: Character Voice in Dialogue and Narrative · 4:55pm Jan 5th, 2019

It's been a while since I've written one of these, but I've been hanging around in FimFiction's Discord's Writing Help chats, and one of the most common things I've been seeing is difficulty with character voicing. Character voicing is hard. It's what's important to making characters stand out from each other.

“Behind Him” Chapter 3 is Almost Done! · 4:34am May 29th

The editing process for Chp. 3 of “Behind Him” is at least 1/3 of the way finished. The whole narrative is completed I just have to go through all the nit picky editing. I’m honestly not sure why editing took so long this time other than I’ve been busy. Anyways, just letting you all know that you’ll have something to look forward to here soon, hopefully by sometime next month :raritywink::twilightsmile:

Ladies and gentlemen, the Equestria Girls franchise antagonists, ranked from best to worst, with supporting factual evidence.
