The Story - Regular Updates
A regular update schedule is key to any artist's growth. Practicing one's specific brand of art is simply how one gets better at it, so setting and keeping a set schedule for new work should be the best way to become better. There are additional components as well, such as receiving honest critique or learning from others, but the main thing is just to keep churning out material. There's also other people to consider, it's not like you have some responsibility to keep them entertained but you do have a responsibility to yourself to stay relevant. Artists upload work because they want it to be seen and more people will see it if the artist curries favor with those watching, such as (I believe) by updating regularly. So far I've seen a few ways to keep up a steady pace and I'd like to share them here.
As a webcomic reader I love it when my favorite story has a few comics in the buffer. It means that when unforeseen (or foreseen) circumstances occur I can still get a new page even if the
Craw-Land Log 8
Crawland Exploration Log, Day 16
Sometimes it's good being the weakest-looking member of the Council. Case in point, yesterday. That abomination would have surely killed me instantly if I had been among the front lines, but by staying in the back and doing my small part the creature was defeated. Then we were nearly all captured by the Claw but again I was overlooked and managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
Earlier that day, we had just finished our morning meeting in which the announcement was made that we had completed construction of a tavern, another fledgeling road, a farm and several more houses. There were some worries among the people following the centipede storm but our continued advancement has put them at ease for now. In my personal matters I barely scrambled my way through the kingdom's finances and even managed to set aside a small stipend for each of the Council members, our wages if you will. Master summoned more planer creatures for the
Character - Accidental Tourist
This place isn't so bad, it's really not as barbaric as it sounded. Clean water, good roads, they even had an organization to help people like me. So what if getting back will be difficult, impossible even, it's not like I had a lot of personal ties there.
The man's bulky high-necked coat ruffles in the winds whipping past him, tufts of black hair poking out from a warm cap. His eyes squint into the distance, a pair of thin glasses perched on his nose and wiggling a little as they glint in the sunlight. Scowling, he shakes his head.
That's not true and you know it! Sis needs you even if she won't listen to a word you say, let's not forget Mom and Dad would be devastated if you disappeared and never returned, you have a whole life to live there. You're going back, somehow, some day!
He passes a minivan driving in the carpool lane, small faces inside staring out at him, he doesn't notice their gaping awe as he nods with a new determination. His oversized boots float a few i

Craw-Land Log 7
Crawland Exploration Log, Day 14
These last few days have been one nightmare after another. After receiving that ridiculous amount of money we received a message from the Sivis outpost that a snitch had information he wished to sell us on Jones. The King was soon informed and we set out for the old fort nearby, where a half-orc butler tried to guide us inside for the meeting and a meal. Quickly we realized something was off about the situation and so demanded that the snitch be brought out to us, as well as this supposed feast. After some negotiation he relented, and a number of toughs brought forth tables of food and what was now a very badly-beaten and tongueless snitch. I quickly deduced this group was a branch of the Emerald Claw, and informed the King of everything I had heard about them after they offered to trade us the snitch for a safe haven within the country and an official presence in our military. We promised to consider the deal and took the snitch before

Crawland Exploration Log, Day 10
Strange events aplenty face us these past few days. The grandmotherly halfling woman returned after temporarily leaving town, speaking of strange tidings and a dark presence winding its way toward us. We nearly went bankrupt a few hours into my tenure as Treasurer, for a reason I am having trouble believing; for some time now a large amount of money and resources have been siphoned from the accounts to some untraceable purpose. The only one with the authority was our ex-Treasurer and the agent of our financier. Would that man really have been stealing from the kingdom he was sent to watch over? For now I shall lay the blame at the feet of the thoroughly demonized Professor if I am asked, more to protect the good name of a dead man than anything else.
Yesterday a number of farmers appeared in court, speaking worriedly of a pack of small dinos eating their crops. Our King immediately offered to take care of the problem personally, and we
Character - Vanished Wizard
Prey tell, have you heard the Saga of Sotch? Now there was a wizard most mighty and an artisan extraordinaire! His tower still stands, I've seen it myself, a marvel even of modern times covered in ancient vines and with only a few stones now missing. I dared not intrude, even wizards long dead love their privacy. Of course I should add it's a mystery whether the man still lives at all, that's the crux of the story. And the lesson? Think a little before you leap forth.
Arko Sotch was a master of magic, secluded like them all, spending his days studying matters esoteric and arcane. His tower was built in a day they say, the stones rousting from the earth like birds taking flight, landing in even patterns and cementing themselves through the force of their meeting. Sitting in the humid jungles to the south it always refreshingly cool a mile around; endless fountains at the base of the tower pour forth all manner of liquids, all safely drinkable and tasting like nothing yet tasted in this
The Story - American Anime
What is anime? My own technical definition would be something like, "professional animation made in Japan with a medium-specific visual language, with an overarching plot and oftentimes based on a manga." This definition splits into four components, being 1) is professionally made in Japan, 2) uses the Anime visual language, 3) has an over-arching and evolving plot that follows the series from beginning to end, and 4) often comes from Manga. Each component is important, and each gives me something to think about. Additionally, I make this proclamation that will be explained in detail later: the Ben 10 series is something I call American Anime, or at least the original series was.
Being professionally made in Japan is something that troubles me, what with my own stated goal of writing anime. To do so by this definition would probably involve learning the language so I could move to Japan and then trying to join the industry there. Thing is, I pretty much want to stay where I am now. I'm

Crawland Exploration Log, Day 6
I must remember to keep up on these logs, as far as I can tell they are the only account of these first days. We are now gaining some official recognition as a new country, and so a true history will perhaps be valuable for future scholars.
When last I wrote, the King was outside having a rousing party with his subjects. The festival spirit was in the air and the merrymaking was jubilant. The king wished to go exploring (I heard from my tent) but the agent of our financier persuaded him to leave it until morning. That half-elf shows his talent more and more, and upon further consideration I have realized he is an artificer, based on the fantastic crossbow he carries.
On the morning of our fourth day here we set out for a multiple-day exploration mission. In the interests of keeping ourselves healthy I spoke with the Priestess, who could not accompany us but passed to me a wand of healing. The artificer should oh no, I forgot to gi

SCENE: Ponyville Park
Twilight Sparkle and new beau Flash Sentry walk down a path in the park, watching the leaves provide a splash of colour to the ground below.
Flash Sentry: "I gotta say that I like autumn leaves."
Twilight: "I've always loved the leaves falling. They're so pretty."
Flash Sentry: "Not quite as pretty as you."
Twilight: (long pause, Flash Sentry remains still) "I am not... You're such a cheeseball!"

HetaOni - GerIta"Italy..."
That name escaped everybody's lips. I never thought they'd miss me that much. I could see them, but they couldn't see me. They were all around my body. Spain was tearing up and Romano had already broken down, while everybody else was in shock and disbelief. Yet, I wasn't. I knew I was going to die, that thing was after me anyway. I'm just glad I was able to save everybody, especially Germany... I just didn't know where I was supposed to go. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, I saw that thing. Was he going to guide me to my friends?
"Is this the right way?"
He nodded, remaining completly silent. I unconciously started walking towards him.
I stopped and turned around to gaze into the pitch blackness.
"Hello? Is someone here with me?"
"That's not the right way Italy! He's trying to trick you."
His voice sounded so familiar, I know him from somewhere.
"Follow my voice, Italy. Don't go with him."
"Can I trust you?"
"Of course you can."

Winter Solider x Reader (Beautiful Stranger)
Winter Solider x Reader
Well, you never met him. You barely know him. But just looking at him, made your heart flutter. Yeah, he might kill you right now. But you couldn't stop staring at him.
You were working at a small coffee shop in New York City. It was cozy, and had a good handful of costumers. Monday mornings were very busy. There would be long lines, but you made sure that every costumer would be happy with they're order. Which they were. And people would just come back, some would even bring friends.. But like I said Monday Morning were busy and people just came in like a bunch of animals.
And today you weren't like yourself. You were, slower and more unfoc

Italy's Second Self
"Feri-Kun,come here." Your eyes still fixed on the pasta you were cooking, you tapped Feliciano softly on the shoulder.
"Kiku wants you." You said, stirring the pasta, which sizzled softly in response.
Feliciano waved at the pasta, saying a goodbye. You rolled your eyes and quietly whispered,"Don't say goodbye to food, Idiota."
...Man, you've been hanging around Lovino too much.
Bored with your thoughts, and the pasta, you listened in on Kiku and Feliciano's conversation.
"Feri-kun, Ludwig-san is coming back."
"Veeee~! He-a is? Iam so-a haaappy!"
"F-Feri-kun, carm down!!"
Kiku sweat-dropped, holding the Italian down so he wouldn't flip tables out of happiness.
You chuckled abit and sighed.
It would be nice to see your boyfriend again, after two years.
"When is he coming?" you
01. Kung Fu Panda 3: Super...
TITLE - Kung Fu Panda 3 - Chapter 01: Superlative Lethargy Training!
It was another early morning in the Jade Palace for Master Shifu, The Furious Five, and Po, AKA "The Dragon Warrior". But instead of constant and routinely training exercises, being in a state of 'Inner Peace', etc... We all had woken up fed up, and surprisingly nobody knew what to do for a change!
There were no bad guys to fight, the Valley was at peace and literally lived to its name, and generally so was all of China at peace as well.
Master Shifu just sat on the stairs that led up to the palace, the rest of the Five wondered and pondered on what to do outside on the training ground, Po wasn't hungry, and I (Tigress) just laid on my back and gazed up to the hot summers clear blue sky.
"What do you have planned for today Shifu? Nothing, I have nothing planned for today!" Shifu said to himself, as he chucked pebbles down the steps to relieve his boredom.
"I want to get something done, oh yeah! Wi YAH!" Po sai

The one thing she never got to see where the Northern Lights she always dreamed of seeing them, so for her 20th birthday, he decided to surprise her with a trip to Iceland to see them.

All those years, outside looking in
All that time, never even knowing just how blind I've been

"Come on outside, love" He said, leading her to the door. Once outside, she was met with the most beautiful sig
