The story of my life goes thusly:
One day, Nan-chan was bored, she walked about the house in a very downcast mood. Upon entering her brother's darkened room, she was even more downcast - he was watching a stupid cartoon.
"What is it?" she asked peevishly.
She watched for a minute - a bare-chested man, sliced open a guy with glasses who fell backward off a bridge.
Feh. Idiots. Watching dumb shows like that.
But a couple of months later, out of SEVERE boredom, she borrowed the cds and began to watch. When Episode 4 came around, she perked up. For she had met the man of her dreams.
The rest is history.
I don't like talking about myself. But here goes.
I'm a Canadian, living abroad (currently in China). Female. 31. I love writing - been writing since I was 9. I've got a vivid imagination. I also like to draw, color, make AMVs, crochet, knit, quilt, READ, do school, READ, boating, READ, needlepoint, cross stich, paint by number, acrylic painting, READ, watch anime.
GOOD WRITING TOP 8
1. Make sure you have a mood
AN EXAMPLE of SHOW vs. TELL:
Iruka felt nervous around Kakashi. It was hard to explain to Kakashi why - he didn't know if it was the status of Jounin, or the fact that he was ex-ANBU, or even because he was so - mysteriously... hot...
That's okay and will do to help the story run along faster (for example, I can't write every conversation in Konoha in my GL novel or else it would be an encyclopedia, right?), but you could also write it differently.
TELL: (1st person thinking)
I feel so nervous around him... sigh... it's hard to explain to him... maybe because he's Jounin... nah... or ex-ANBU. Or maybe... maybe - becuase he's... WAAAHHH! so hot! and mysterious!
TELL: (3rd person dialogue)
"You're nervous around me," noted Kakashi.
Tell me which one do you think you liked better? All were good, but admit it, the dialogue is more engrossing. let me tell you a secret to tons of reviews: dialogue, a good sprinkling of description, and well thought out plots/ideas.
STEPS TO GOOD DIALOGUE!
