Author has written 8 stories for Dragon Ball Z, and Naruto.
Hey, I'm Kaka.
On most days I'm a uni student but I like to write whenever the muse strikes. I don't get a chance to read too often these days but I'm always on the lookout for something interesting.
The best way to get me to update any of my stories is to leave a review with some honest feedback. Nothing serves as better inspiration for me than finding out what I did right and what I still need to improve on.
I also need to shout out CloakSky for letting me use her artwork as the cover picture for When Ends Meet and drawing the one for Come Fly With Me.
You can find a lot more of my writing at Team Dragon Star which is a collaborative account that I was a founding member of. The idea behind it is that a few authors working on a story together can often make for a more cohesive writing experience and, therefore, a better story. Take a look at some of our stories or if the concept of writing alongside others intrigues you, sign up yourself.
Here are some of the stories I've helped write for the group:
The Videl Satan School for Martial Arts
When a ploy to discover whether the new kid actually is Saiyaman backfires on her, Videl takes it upon herself to teach him self-defense. The only problem? Son Gohan's been the strongest person alive since he defeated Cell seven years ago.
Failings and Misunderstandings (complete)
Team 7's failure to pass the first stage of the Chunin exams leads to the fabled Sharingan slipping through Orochimaru's fingers, prompting the Snake Sannin to mark Hinata Hyuuga with the cursed seal. While Team 7 attempt to make up for not advancing to the next stage, Hinata has to deal with the consequences of bearing Orochimaru's mark.
Tranquil Violence (complete)
Videl struggles to get stronger, constantly being in the shadow of her family. When a mysterious new dojo opens up, will the Sensei, Gohan be able to help her overcome her family name and make one for herself?
Trials and Forthcomings
The outbreak of a war unlike any before it threatens to overshadow Team 7's reunion after three years of intense training as the threat of the Akatsuki descends upon the ninja world. Meanwhile, Hinata finds that putting her cursed seal behind her is a task much easier said than done. Sequel to Failings and Misunderstandings.
These are just but a few of the stories you can find on the Team Dragon Star account. You'll have to check the rest out yourself.
Here are a couple pointers I have for those looking to write stories:Write realistic and complex characters. Be careful about having characters undertake specific actions simply for the sake of the plot. Have a plot. You don't need a detailed chapter-to-chapter guide, but it's helpful to have a general idea of where you're headed. Don't overdo it though because one of the best things about fanfiction is the spur-of-the-moment decisions that authors make at the last moment. Proofread. Get a beta-reader if you can because, as I can testify, there'll always be a few mistakes that slip past your eye no matter how diligent you are when you check over your writing. Write an enticing summary that would make you want to read your story. If it's your first summary, try to identify good summaries and compare yours to them. Write things that you enjoy. Post them online for feedback. Reviews are great but they just bolster a small number next to your story. Believe me, you want feedback too, not just the numbers. I'd rather have five reviews that explain their honest thoughts on the story instead of fifteen telling me to 'update soon'. Even though the latter does imply that those reviewers enjoy your story enough that they want to see it updated, it tells you very little about what they did like.
