As a writer you ask yourself to dream while you're awake. As an editor you ask yourself how to change a story while leaving it the same.

On A Small Interview With Justic4243
By Justice4243 for up and coming authors

Figure out a story that’s important to you and write it. It can be something that you feel is missing or maybe just something you want to write your own take on, but the important thing is you write and don’t stop writing until you’re done. On that note, don’t be afraid to talk to and get guidance and ideas from your readers. They’ll likely become part of your motivation for continuing as you continue.

Nope, I'm flying blind on this plane. Probably why everyone is screaming....

We should really change "common sense" to "unique sense of judgement." It's really not common anymore...

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Characters in a story are only as good as the author who writes them.

Just because you're losing, less smart, or anything but the best, doesn't mean you're hopeless. It means that you have to most potential to grow.

Timing has a lot to do with the success of a rain dance.

As a writer you ask yourself to dream while you're awake. As an editor you ask yourself how to change a story while leaving it the same.

The funny thing is... this is completely right :D
When writing, I am often faced with the problems I have no idea what to write / how to get the character to do just what I want them to do...
Even though I already have diaries, note and everything else all scribbled out and written down... I still face that problem that I don't have the same genious ideas as to when I am trying to sleep (which leads me to fetch my notes and begin to scribble :D)

And Looking at my proofreader, or when I think I could maybe proofread something... I always face the point on... "wait... that would change the story/idea" :D


Thanks!:twilightsmile: That was the goal! If it goes well I may write a few more.

Your new story looks adorable.

thanks for wanting to check out the story, hope its up to snuff:twilightsheepish:

Wowie! :rainbowderp: A page that is almost filled with OctraScratch - whether story or even shitposting :rainbowlaugh:. Anyways, Mystic would not mind being stuck in a bunker with you as you if it means you could tell and make more of those stories! :rainbowkiss::raritystarry: Cannot wait for what you have in mind if ever G5 comes out! :pinkiecrazy:.Unless they are not featured anymore there :fluttershbad::fluttercry:.

Other than that, would like to explore more of your content after some exams :pinkiesick:. Maybe you even have some tunes you would recommend? Mystic here is like an arms dealer, but in the music industry so... Vinyls dealer? :moustache: Here's a sample :raritywink:! Not a lot know this :coolphoto::

Mainly just a thank you note for the dedication and staying awesome! :heart::twilightblush:
Best wishes,
~ Mystic Stirling ;P


I will, but I have two one shots I want to write. I'll be putting out more of it during the summer though.


Sorry about my late reply. Anywho, I have to put it out there that I was like thirteen when I did that. Prime cringe age.

I also agree with this notion.

I used to respect you, but then I saw you posted a Minion meme on a terrible story 4 years ago.

Hey Shadow! Ive been a fan of your work for a while now and I was wondering, do you plan on continuing Hearing is Beleiving?
