Author has written 2 stories for Naruto, and Pokémon.
Name: Shubham Dutt
Country of origin: India
Hobbies: Reading, be it fanfics or regular novels, writing, though it is currently limited to fanfic only, and the occasional basketball game.
Favorite Anime/Manga: Naruto, One Piece, Basilisk, Sekirei, High School DxD and a few more.
Favorite authors: Classic writers including Shakespeare, Alexander Dumas, Fyodor Dostoyevski. Modern writers like Paolo Coelho, Agatha Christie, Dan Brown, Amish Tripathi(those who don't know about him, I recommend reading his books as they are brilliant mythological fictions) and a few more.
The following words by Paolo Coelho have been a great inspiration for me and I hope they provide the same inspiration to others as well:
"I believe that every human being on this planet has at least one good story to tell his neighbor"
“There are two types of writers: those who make you think and those who make you dream says Brian Aldiss, who made me dream for such a long time with his science-fiction books. In principle I believe that every human being on this planet has at least one good story to tell his neighbor. What follows are my reflections on some important items in the process of creating a text:
Above all else, the writer has to be a good reader. The kind that sticks to academic texts and does not read what others write (and here I’m not just talking about books but also blogs, newspaper columns and so on) will never know his own qualities and defects.
So, before starting anything, look for people who are interested in sharing their experience through words. I’m not saying: “look for other writers.” What I say is: find people with different skills, because writing is no different from any other activity that is done with enthusiasm.
Your allies will not necessarily be those that everyone looks on with admiration and says: “there’s nobody better.” It’s very much the opposite: it’s people who are not afraid of making mistakes, and yet they do make mistakes. That is why their work is not always recognized. But that’s the type of people who change the world, and after many mistakes they manage to get something right that will make all the difference in their community.
These are people who cannot sit around waiting for things to happen before they decide on the best way to narrate them: they decide as they act, even knowing that this can be very risky.
Living close to these people is important for writers, because they need to understand that before putting anything down on paper, they should be free enough to change direction as their imagination wanders. When a sentence comes to an end, the writer should tell himself: “While I was writing I traveled a long road. Now I can finish this paragraph in the full awareness that I have risked enough and given the best of myself.”
The best allies are those who don’t think like the others. That’s why, while you are looking for your companions, trust your intuition and don’t pay any attention to others’ remarks. People always judge others using the model of their own limitations — and at times the opinion of the community is full of prejudices and fears.
Join those who have never said: “It’s finished, I have to stop here.” Because just as winter is followed by spring, nothing comes to an end: after reaching your objective, you have to start again, always using all that you have learnt on the way.
Join those who sing, tell stories, enjoy life and have happiness in their eyes. Because happiness is contagious and always manages to keep people from being paralyzed by depression, loneliness and troubles.
And tell your story, even if it’s only for your family to read.
Paulo Coelho’s writing tips:
On confidence: You cannot sell your next book by underrating your book that was just published. Be proud of what you have.
On trust: Trust your reader, don’t try to describe things. Give a hint and they will fulfill this hint with their own imagination.
On expertise: You cannot take something out of nothing. When you write a book, use your experience.
On critics: Some writers want to please their peers, they want to be “recognized.” This shows insecurity and nothing else, please forget about this. You should care to share your soul and not to please other writers.
On note-taking: If you want to capture ideas, you are lost. You are going to be detached from emotions and forget to live your life. You will be an observer and not a human being living his or her life. Forget taking notes. What is important remains, what is not important goes away.
On research: If you overload your book with a lot of research, you are going to be very boring to yourself and to your reader. Books are not there to show how intelligent you are. Books are there to show your soul.
On writing: I write the book that wants to be written. Behind the first sentence is a thread that takes you to the last.
The following is a work of fiction and readers are advised to treat it as such.
THE BRO CODE
Whether we know it or not, each of us lives a life governed by an internalized code of conduct. Some call it morality, others call it religion. I call it ‘the Bro Code.’
Article 1: Bros before ho’s.
Article 2: A Bro is always entitled to do something stupid, as long as the rest of his Bros are all doing it.
Article 3: If a Bro gets a dog, it must be at least as tall as his knee when full-grown.
Article 4: A Bro never divulges the existence of the Bro Code to a woman. It is a sacred document not to be shared with chicks for any reason…no not even that reason.

Article 6: A Bro shall not lollygag if he must get naked in front of other Bros in a gym locker room.

Article 8: A Bro never sends a greeting card to another Bro.
Article 9: Should a Bro lose a body part due to an accident or illness, his fellow Bros will not make lame jokes such as “Gimme three!” or “Wow, quitting your job like that really took a lot of ball.” it’s still a high five and that Bro still has a lot of balls…metaphorically speaking, of course.
Article 10: A Bro will drop whatever he’s doing and rush to help his Bro dump a chick.
Article 11: A Bro may ask his Bro(s) to help him move, but only after disclosing an honest estimate on both time and number of large pieces of furniture. If the Bro has vastly underestimated either, his Bro(s) retain the right to leave his possessions where they are-in most cases, stuck in a doorway.
Article 12: Bros do not share desserts.
Article 13: All Bros shall dub one of their Bros his wingman.
Article 14: If a chick inquires about another Bro’s sexual history, a Bro shall honor the Brode of Silence and play dumb. Better to have women think all men are stupid than to tell the truth.

Article 20: A Bro respects his Bros in military because they’ve selflessly chosen to defend the nation, but more to the point, because they can kick his ass six ways to Sunday.
Article 21: A Bro never shares observations about another Bro’s smoking hot girlfriend. Even if the Bro with the hot girlfriend attempts to bait the Bro by saying, “She’s smoking hot, huh?” a Bro shall remain silent, because in this situation, he’s the only one who should be baiting.
Article 22: There is no law that prohibits a woman from being a Bro.
Article 23: When flipping through TV channels with his Bro, a Bro is not allowed to skip past a program featuring boobs. This includes, but is not limited to, exercise shows, women’s athletics and on some occasions, surgery programs.

Article 35: A Bro never rents a chick flick.
Article 36: When questioned in the company of women, a Bro always decries fake breasts.

Article 39: When a Bro gets a chick’s number, he waits at least ninety-six hours before calling her.

If both call dibs at the same time, the Bro who counts aloud to ten the fastest has dibs, if both arrive at the number ten at the same time, the Bro who bought the last round of drinks has dibs. If they haven’t purchased drinks yet, the taller of the two Bros has dibs. If they’re the same height, the Bro with the longer dry spell has dibs.

Article 105: If a Bro is not invited to another Bro’s wedding, he doesn’t make a big deal out of it, even if, let’s face it, he was kind of responsible for setting up the couple and had already picked out the perfect wedding gift and everything. It’s cool. No big whoop.
Article 106: Given an option on quantity when ordering a beer with his Bros, a Bro always selects the largest size available or shall never hear the end of it that night.
Article 107: A Bro never leaves another Bro hanging. Besides the obvious health hazards inherent in keeping an arm aloft for an extended period of time, the emotional effects of leaving a Bro out dry in public can be devastating. If you ever see a Bro, even one you don’t know, looking around frantically with a paw held high in the air, throw him a Brone and hit him up top.

Article 116: A Bro shall not kill another Bro or a Bro’s chance to score with a chick.

Article 124: A Bro never wears two articles of clothing at the same time that beat the same school name, vacation, or sports team. Even in a laundry emergency, it’s preferred that a Bro go out half naked rather than violate this code… half naked from the waist up, naturally.
Article 125: If a Bro lends another Bro a DVD, video game, or piece of lawn machinery, he shall not expect to ever get it back, unless his Bro happens to die and bequeath it back to him.
Article 126: If a Bro learns another Bro has been in a traffic accident, he must first ask what type of car he collided with and whether it got totaled before asking if his Bro is okay.
Article 127: While a Bro is not expected to know exactly how to change a tire, he is required to at least drag out the jack and stare at the flat for a while. If he needs to consult the car’s ownership manual to locate the jack, he shall do so from inside the car, where he is not visible to passersby and where he can discreetly call a tow truck, after which it is recommended that he hide the jack by the side of the road so he’ll have a legitimate excuse when the tow truck arrives.
Article 128: If a Bro decides to let all of his Bros down and get married, he is required to invite them to the wedding, even if this directly violated the wishes of his fiancé and results in a ‘no sex’ penalty or whatever lame domestic punishment couples might employ.

Article 130: A Bro is entitled to use a woman as a wingwoman.

Article 132: When interrogated by a girlfriend about a bachelor party, a Bro shall offer nothing more than an uninterested “It was okay.”

THE PIZZA EQUATION

b= number of Bros (including yourself)
Article 134: A Bro doesn’t laugh when a guy gets hit in the groin.
Exception: Unless he doesn’t know the guy.
Article 135: Regardless of veracity, a Bro never admits familiarity with a Broadway show or musical, despite the fact that, yes, ‘Broadway’ begins with “Bro.”

Article 141: A Bro is never offended if another Bro fails to return a phone call, text, or email in a timely fashion.

Exception: If his Bro has picked a fight with a scary looking guy.
Exception: If this is the third fight (or more) his Bro has gotten into that week.
Exception: If the Bro has a note from a physician excusing him from having anybody’s back.
Article 144: A Bro doesn’t listen to chick music…in front of other Bros. When alone, a Bro may listen to, say, a Sarah McLachlan album or two, but only to gain valuable insights into the female psyche, not because he finds her melodies tragically haunting yet curiously uplifting at the same time.
Article 145: A Bro pretends to understand and enjoy cigars.
Article 146: No sex with your Bro’s ex.
A Bro is entitled to have sex with his Bro’s ex if she initiates it, she is really hot, or his Bro is out of town or in a different room.
If a Bro writes and directs a trilogy of awesome space-themed sagas that define a generation’s childhood, he is forbidden from later tarnishing the legacy by crapping out a prequel trilogy that forces Bros to specify ‘Episode 4 to 6’ or ‘the real Trilogy’ when referencing what was once a perfect series of movies, regardless of how anyone feels about Ewoks.
Should a Bro become aware that his Bro has a really hot sister, she is no longer protected under Article 19: A Bro shall not sleep with another Bro’s sister. That said, a Bro should reevaluate if the sister kind of resembles his Bro in a wig.

'You are fools! Your log is but a mockery of the power of ninja! - The ninja from the desert declared. And the people shook their heads.
'and as the smoke cleared, his foe stared in awe at the log. blackened and charred, the log crumbled. the ninja, filled with righteous wrath, fell upon his foe and slew him. he made his way to the log, and wept. his companion, the log that had accompanied him through so many battles, was no more. he spoke thus to his fallen companion: though now you have fallen in battle, you rest where the logs forever grow. the forest of life called for you, and you answered its call, as you did mine. i thank you my friend.'
'he despaired, for in this place of stone and earth, there was no logs to be found. reaching out with all his might, he begged for a log in the forsaken wasteland. and he was answered, and saved by the log, in a place where there were none.
'the log took his place and fell, forever into the abyss. the people, hearing of this, railed against him, in such numbers he swore to never endanger another log again. for many years, he fought without the log, growing more and more weary with each passing day. finally, he came across a foe that was too strong for him. as his life was about to end, he felt a familiar pull, and found himself out of harms way, seeing a log in his place. his stunned foe was felled in his stupor, and he approached the log, he knew it, for it was the same that fell so long ago. he asked of the log: why did you endanger yourself for me again? have you not done enough for me? and the log spoke: it is my duty, and our bond. we exist to save the ninja, and they exist to save the trees. we both play a part, for which i am content.'
Let it be known that it is absolutely forbidden to willingly perform the technique known as "1000 years of death" on a log. It is also equally frowned upon for one to replace oneself with a holy log for the purpose of avoiding said technique. The punishment for such actions is at least 6 months of banishment from the use of the holy log.
