Writing Tips and Tricks

Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.
- William Faulkner

“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”

― Gary Provost

It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.
- Ernest Hemingway

"Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." – Anton Chekhov

Any man who keeps working is not a failure. He may not be a great writer, but if he applies the old-fashioned virtues of hard, constant labor, he’ll eventually make some kind of career for himself as writer.
- Ray Bradbury

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
- Douglas Adams

I went for years not finishing anything. Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged.
- Erica Jong

^Not my preferred example. However I can not share that version as it deals with strippers.

Hi there! I'm Normal, or you can call me Stormy! Bet you've never met a person named that before. Well hold onto your britches because that's my real name!

Since age is always changing I'll just say I'm born in '94. Nineteen ninety-four that is!:derpytongue2:

Anything else?

I am on this account quite frequently so feel free to just start chatting. :trixieshiftright:

Do you remember drawing this?

If you're looking for inspiration to make more drawings like this, I have a bunch of scenes that could work really well in a comic.

Sweetie Belle brings home her Friend Tenty.

Sweetie Belle announces her and tentacle wrap around the filly, engulfing her as Tenty says, “We’re bestest friends now.”

Rarity saves Sweetie Belle but ends up with Tenty on her Hoof, crawling toward her face.

She uses the door to get her off and leaves her outside.

Sweetie Belle convinces Rarity to let her back in.

When she opens the door, she’s sticking to all sides of the frame with her ear to the door (she’s been eavesdropping).

Before dinner, Tenty is asked to clean herself. She pours soap on her tentacles and doesn’t wash it away.
At the diner, Rarity sits Tenty on a chair.

Tenty doesn’t understand the concept of a chair, so she just wraps it in tentacles and mounts it on her back while she eats.

As they say thank you at the table, they hold each other's hooves, but Tenty holds all the Hooves with her tentacles as well.

As others eat at the table, there are tentacles all over the table, touching everything.

To open a clam, Tenty uses Rarity’s horn (clam-opener) without even asking.

When there’s a visitor, Tenty jumps at their face like a face-hugger.

When the mailman drops mail through the door. Tentacles emerge out and he runs away.

When she sees a pegasus, she tries to imitate wings.

At sleep-over, Tenty is laid on the top bunk, but she instead hangs from it with her face against Sweetie Belle’s. Always watching (Tentacle ponies sleep with their eyes open).

Tentacle mare can’t restrain herself. Tentacles have a mind of their own.

Gets a tentacle stuck on someone’s eye. They have to pierce the sucking circle and she has to bandage a tentacle. It happens again right away…

Finds a job handling postcards. When they change to echo paper, she no longer excels at it because she can’t suck on the rough surface.

Finds a job at moving glass.

Forces somepony to smile with her tentacles.

Anyways if you want them, these ideas are free for you. You don't even have to mention me. Ideas are worthless. Work is what counts. And since you'd be the one putting in the work, it would make you the sole 100% author of the comic.

Let me know if you're interested before somepony else takes these ideas and beats you to the punch.

Opps :trollestia: While I am struggle to write my fic.... Well yeah very hard to finish it.

P/S: I really need an editor.

If it makes you feel better, I've already been told more times than I can count how much of a failure I am for struggling to finish things to completion :pinkiesmile:

You might say I even gave up counting :trollestia:

I am most likely not posting on this account any more. And I did try focusing on one or two stories. However depression makes it hard to focus and finish things.

If you look its been years since I last updated anything here.
