anonymous asked:

I really want to start my own story, series, or comic about my characters. I'm just afraid to start it and dive into it and just end up disappointing myself and others. Any tips for first time trying to do this sort of thing? I love your work by the way. I draw and take inspiration from mythological stories and folktales; I love them.

I’m not sure I can be of much help (I usually don’t know what I’m doing) but… 

  • Whatever the main subject of your story is, make sure to understand it well. Research, research, research. The better you know smth the easier it is to talk to others about it;
  • Establish what your main focus is. What do you want to communicate? What is the message you’re trying to tell? Is it about friendship? About love? Morals? Self-sacrifice? (for me, the message is the most important part in a story);
  • Take your time to know your characters. How do they talk, walk, sit? What are their struggles and how are you going to develop them throughout the story;
  • Regardless of how the story turns out to be, in the end you’ll have both regrets and good memories about it. Therefore, try to focus on your own personal development. Use the comic as a tool to improve and understand yourself. Test new things, explore, experiment. Enjoy the process of it!

Once again, I’m sorry. I’m aware this doesn’t help much but it is what works for me ^^ Good luck and have fun!!

HOW TO COMMAND THE MUSE TO COME ON YOUR TIME (3 STEPS TO DISCIPLINE YOUR WRITING LIFE) 

Have you ever said or thought any of the following statements?

  • I want to write, but I should do the dishes.
  • I’m just not inspired right now.
  • I’ll write tomorrow, because then I’ll have more time.
  • I’m just too busy to write right now.
  • I have so many things to do! How can I possibly fit writing a novel into my life?!
  • I don’t have enough time.
  • How does she do it? She’s so busy and yet she still makes time to write every day. I could never do that.
  • I will write; I’m just going to binge-watch this entire show on Netflix first.

Or perhaps that isn’t the issue. How about any of these statements?

  • I’m going to write today (and then you look up and it’s 9 o'clock and you still haven’t written a word).
  • I’m going to write as soon as I get home (and then you do the dishes and make dinner and cuddle up for movie time and before you know it you’re in bed and no writing has been done).
  • I’m going to write (and then you DO sit down with your writing, but you’re uninspired and you end up staring at the blank page wondering why you ever wanted to do this at all).

Don’t worry. You’re not alone.

I made another thing. Another novice piece of graphic (well not “graphic” in that way) fanart.

@atomicallyabyss

If anyone (Arkn character or otherwise. Just need a picture to use as a reference because proportions perplex me) wants me to make art in this style made for them, hit me up. I’m always extremely bored, and these entertain me.

It’s kinda sad seeing all the negative stuff in the tag (don’t get me wrong, I understand everyone has the right to their opinion, it’s just the negativity bums me out) so I wanted to make a list of everything good about that episode.

- The sdr2 kids are alive and okay!!!

- Komaeda has a cool ass robot hand 

- Seeing the sdr2 kids animated in their Jabberwock Island clothes

- Kazuichi making more mini robot nekomarus!!!

- Souda’s face when he finally gets some praise from Sonia

- Mikan helping Hiyoko when things were about to get rough

- And Hiyoko saying thank you…albeit reluctantly 

- Gundam’s hair (I know I already commented on their animation but this deserves another mention because it’s great) 

- The fact Ibuki’s music has the power to knock down all the guards like that lmao

- Just seeing the sdr2 kids work together 

- Getting to see the ultimate imposter in 3 disguises 

- Hearing all the sdr2 music 

- The Hajime/Izuru eye theory being correct

- The sdr2 kids looking out for Ryota and wanting to help him

- Ryota not brainwashing the world with his hope anime 

- Nagito shoving Mikan out the way so he can meet Makoto 

- Hajime thinking of Chiaki and Chiaki holding Usami

- Just everyone being friends

- Kyoko is still alive (thanks to Seiko and Mikan!!!) 

- Makoto is a headmaster!!

- I suppose things aren’t as glorious for Munakata but he’s got a cool new coat. 

I’m gonna stop bc this post is getting long, but these are some of my favourite moments from the episodes. I know it wasn’t to everyone’s tastes, but it made me really happy.

I'm a trans boy and I can't get a binder. I asked for one, and my mom's concerned that it'll hurt my health as I'm still growing. I'm at the point that even seeing my breasts makes me want to throw up. I hate myself as female. I want to die. Why can't I be fucking male? I'm honestly terrified and I don't want to go to school because I look so feminine.

Hey hey hey I know things are shit. But you need to stay strong. For some reason you were made the way you are. And guess what, it’ll make you stronger. Just get through the tough times rn. Try baggy shirts, sports bras, and bajas work for me when dysphoria gets bad. Head up. You’ll get there
