With Links to Supplementary Material
It has become increasingly popular for writers to want to collaborate with another person in order to create a story, and with good reason. Having another person cuts down the amount of work each of you has to do, gives you new perspective, challenges your style, and can help you improve tremendously. That being said, it is also has about the same likelihood of succeeding as a business venture of selling Popsicles in Antarctica. Today, I'm going to explain the flaws in writing collaboratively, as well as some tips for traversing its murky waters.
Tip 1: Know the risks.
It may seem difficult to envision, but writing is a very intimate activity by which you infuse your soul
The Truth About Selling FanartUpdate notice as of January 17, 2013: I have given this guide a MAJOR overhaul. It was originally written over a year and a half ago, and since then my own views and understanding of copyrights has changed. I felt that this guide should reflect those changes, so if you read this guide in the past, please take a moment to look through it again as I have added MANY new topics, information, and sources. Unlike my first draft, I have also changed my viewpoint to neutral throughout this writing.
Update notice as of July 17th, 2015: Check out DeviantArt's new article on art theft, fanart, copyrights, and other relevant topics! http://protectart.deviantart.com/journal/The-Art-Theft-Discussion-544490149
Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, nor any kind of professional that works in dealing with laws or copyrights. This guide was written based on my own research and understanding of copyright laws, and from discussions with others knowledgeable of the subject. These facts are all
Paint Tool SAI Bug Fixesokkkkk so I was having some problems with this program, and here are two fixes I found.
They work and now I'm happy.
First: Touch sensitivity
I have a Windows 7 comp and a wacom tablet.
So, first open the "Start" menu.
Search for "tablet preference"
A link labeled "Wacom Tablet Preference File Utility" should pop up.
Then, Click "Remove" All Users Preferences.
This fixed touch sensitivity....
On top of that, it wouldn't work at all -______________- it didn't even show up! when I clicked, nothing happened!
So here's what to do....
go to the folder in which sai is located. it could be "PaintTool SAI EnglishPack" or something like that.
A Configuration Settings file should pop up labeled "misc"
You should have the following:
Proof that The Rugrats Theory is Fake (Updated)By now, everyone knows about the Creepypasta known as "The Rugrats Theory" which states that the babies all died prematurely and became figments of Angelica's imagination. The only Rugrats that were real were Susie, who was Angelica's best friend that played along with her game, Dil and Kimi, who was taken from her mother and became a figment after Angelica listened to stories about Kimi.
When I first read the theory last year, it seemed very well solid with only a few small holes. This is a case with most Creepypastas that are written about TV shows. However, after re-reading "The Rugrats Theory" one year later, I have discovered a couple of major holes. I know...I know. Creepypastas are meant to be scary, not real. That being said, many people may have actually believed this theory, possibly because they mostly remember the series after the first two movies. I remember the entire series, including all the episodes that predate Dil and Kimi. &
How to Invent a Good UsernameTime for a quickie tutorial!
Your username (also known as nick) gives one of first impressions of you when introducing yourself online. At the best, your username tells people you're an original person with good taste, and at the worst, it blends you to the mass of people lacking imagination.
GENERAL ISSUES TO THINK ABOUT
Here is a list about issues that are healthy to think about in general. After this section, I'll give you "not to do" and "to do" lists about creating usernames. So...
The most important thing is that YOU like your name. If you don't feel cozy with your username, it will irritate you sooner or later. However, especially if you are still young or new with Internet, be prepared for that your naming taste may change later and you may dislike that name you picked first! (That's something I have seen in the comments of this tutorial.)
For example, my first online username was, if I remember correctly, my given name + my birth year (like, Lisa90,

Creating a Well-Developed Original CharacterCreating a Well-developed OC
Hello! Welcome to my guide on the creation of a balanced, believable original character! Whether this is your first time creating a character and you want some advice on where to start, or you need to tweak your character, because you're unsatisfied with it, then you've come to the right place. In this guide you'll find details on the importance of every aspect of an OC, from something seemingly insignificant as the name to the powers of a character.
This guide can be applied to original characters of any fandom or purely of your creation for your own story! If your setting doesn't include some parts, like having abilities, you can simply skip over that section. Likewise, if I'm going into details on some specifics that don't apply to your character, feel free to skip over that as well.
Before I get into breaking down a character, let me first start off by asking you to do one thing. Get the term "Mary Sue" out of your head right now bef
