Watchers

This isn't what you normally see in lists like this, though...

Normally, you see lists of said bookisms, grammar, writing structure, blah blah blah, right? Well... not so much here. These resources have been some of the greatest and most helpful in my eternal journey to become the best writer I can possibly be. From character development to narratives to avoiding Sues, these links are often hilarious, greatly entertaining, and surprisingly far more helpful than you'd think at first glance!

RedLetterMedia
RedLetterMedia (RLM) is a Web-based series of videos intending to critiquing various films. The reviews of the Star Wars prequel trilogy are hilarious, but also incredibly helpful. I highly encourage any aspiring writer to start here, as they discuss keeping narratives coherent, addressing plotholes, romance cliches, how to avoid confusing your audience, and dialogue - all incredibly helpful info, especially when you're just starting out.

Twilight Snarker
An unfortunately discontinued blog that critiqued the Twilight series. While I don't 100% agree with everything here, it does help teach how to avoid purple prose and romance cliches, among other things. I really wish this had been continued, but, at least it still exists.

TV Tropes
Believe it or not, one of the best resources I've found. Its discussions of character archetypes is very helpful if you're planning to write a character who's not quite the ordinary type, especially in a particular genre, while they also address plotholes, narrative structure, and dialogue.

Be sure to check out aversions and subversions of various tropes, which can genuinely help with creativity. Stuck in a rut? This will help.

More to come later!

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Hello there! I am a hobbyist artist and author. I am the author of Without Crisis: Final Fantasy VII and a few other stories. My fan-fiction specialty is "What If", ranging from single-chapter asides to multi-chapter epics. For one reason or another, the Halo franchise will always have a special place in my heart, as will Firefly, Star Wars, Ratchet & Clank, and Tomb Raider.

Things you should know about me:
• I am Christian
• I am a big-time nerd-geek
• I am not a multishipper
• I love to write above all other hobbies
• I am a gamer and don't engage in the console wars
• My OTP of OTPs is Caius x Lightning and nobody can change my mind
• I was once told I can pair two random objects together and make it work
• Thrawn is my favorite Star Wars character, hands down

Hey there Genesis. Man, it's been a while. You probably don't remember from how long I've been gone but, :iconnoctiana:. Your fellow CaiusxLightning shipper, which I now fully approve of after going through the events of Lightning Returns and being a full-fledged NoelxYeul shipper. Your writing is excellent as always, I'm glad to see that hasn't changed ^^

Of course I remember you! It's good to see you around again. :hug: So, you joined the Noel x Yeul and Cairai fandoms, did you? Well, welcome aboard, we're always glad to see new faces. And thank you, I'm glad you still enjoy my writing. ^^

^^ You're welcome. :hug: I've been working on my own Original Story recently, but since the absence of my co-author, I'm trying to do some fanfiction in terms of, maybe FFXIII-related or Skyrim. 
But, despite my shipping of Cairai, I still love Caius to pieces. That hasn't changed. At all.

Ah, original stories are fantastic. Nothing like spending hours daydreaming about worldbuilding and characters and storylines... I love it. It's one of the best things in life. ^^ So, what made you decide to follow Cairai and Noel x Yeul? I know you were pretty fond of both Hoperai and Caius x Yeul, so I'm genuinely curious. :)

And duh, you're still free to be a huge fan of Caius. I mean, I'm a hardcore Cairai shipper and I still am a reasonable fangirl. ^^
