            This is something I’m majorly struggling with. Choosing and sticking to a point of view. This is something that comes with practice from what I’m aware of. I’ve read lots of articles and books talking about what not to do and what is good form. They all seem to conflict at one point or another. I’ve decided to list all of these anyway, in hopes of not confusing anyone but helping them come to their own opinions on the subject.
            One thing that seems conflicted to me is choosing/switching story point of views or using multiple types. A lot of people say no on this, but there are many books out there in third and first person, even a greater mix of point of views. People argue its jarring and bad writing, but some of the greats have pulled off switching viewpoints points in style or individual character pov.

How I Plan An Outline
How I Plan An Outline
Cecily Rowley
     
    When playing around on another forum. I would often see people ask the question when writing which is best, outlining or flying by the seat of your pants? Followed up by another question if you plan your novels or short stories how do you do it? I saw a lot of different answers on there but nothing like what I do. So I pitched in my two cents here and there on the subject. Maybe it’s just me… Maybe I over think things? Maybe I’m obsessive compulsive and a control freak. Haha… I don’t really think so. I would like to think that I’m organized. 
    I’ve actually been complimented on my method of planning. I honestly wasn’t expecting it. So I thought maybe it would be a good idea to share it here as well. So without further ado…
    Often in my process, I start off really simple. I insert myself into m

Character Development: Villains
    Character Development: Villains
    Cecily Rowley
    When creating a villain of my own, I went away from a rule I kept seeing pop up. “Show that your villain wasn’t always a bad person.” I wouldn’t say this rule is law. I decided to create something completely different, which I think can also work too. In writing, we want well-developed characters, but with villains, there are so many options and so many ways to take this character the possibilities seem limitless.
    One thing I feel a lot of people fail to see in these articles is that you can have a person who is/was just a rotten apple from the start. You don’t have to have the fallen hero type or the tragedy tropes. You can decide to inject a psychopath or a sociopath into your story. (When doing so, I would suggest doing a lot of research on mental illness.) Because it can be very difficult to make a character like

New Writers Resources Group!



Please feel free to check out our writer's resources group :iconwritersresources: My goal is to help the writing community with this group and to bring quality resources to aspiring and seasoned writers.

If you like what you see join us. If you want to contribute feel free to do so! I'm looking to get us noticed and put on the map so we can become a super group.

In other words, I hope to create a group of writers who will want to benefit not only themselves but others.

What I'm Currently Doing



I'm currently working on writing a fantasy book series. My focus is on the research phase so I can give my worlds a more believable feel. While writing is my main focus, I am also looking to eventually do commissions. I'm in the phase of gaining information on other site platforms for advertising, as well as looking into how others conduct commissions. If you have any advice on this please note me. I'd like to pick your brain! If your a writer please take my polls so I can better serve my writing group page.

To Do List




1. Working on posting up articles and sites to my group.
2. Writing, and creating an artbook.
3. Making ornaments for Christmas.
4. Sewing a tree skirt and baby stocking.
5. Looking to set up a fabric donation fund so I can make blankets for the poor.
6. Actively participate in the DA Community!

 Before we get started. I just want to thank again whoever was kind and donated the three-month core account. It's mega appreciated and I feel loved! So, here's to my third featured journal! I've met some pretty amazing people over the last couple months. We have a strong community of artists looking to give and receive feedback that I hadn't been aware of. As I've been taking part in some groups and chats looking to help others and gain feedback on my own work, I've had the opportunity to run into some generous souls and talented artists!

Hell Hound by KurGuardianz  Evil Angel by KurGuardianz  Kur's Aura Part 1During a very dark night at the Saturday home, Doc & Drew are doing some midnight sparing in the training room, Doyle is making a few adjustments to his Jet Pack in the living room, Komodo sneaks into the kitchen to get himself a snack & Zon is minding her own business in her nest outside. As for Zak, Lexi & Fiskerton, they are all sleeping in their separate beds in the bedroom. At first everything seemed okay, but suddenly, Komodo hears a shriek coming from Zon outside. He crawls outside as fast as he can to see if Zon what is wrong, but as soon as he arrives at Zon's nest, she is gone.
Komodo goes to the living room so he can try to warn Doyle about Zon's disappearance, but when Komodo makes it to the living room, Doyle is also gone. Then after a few seconds, Komodo hears huge thuds coming from the room that Doc & Drew are in. Komodo enters the training room, Doc & Drew are also gone, the room is filled with knockout gas. Komodo tries to keep himself awake after breathing in the
  Kur's Aura Part 2*17 Minutes Later*
After a long search, Zak & Lexi managed to find their tracking device that was confiscated by Doc about a month ago.
"Shouldn't we wake Fisk up before we leave?" Zak asked.
"I've tried waking him up while you were in the surveillance room, we're on our own" Lexi replied.
Lexi used her shape shifting ability to turn herself into a Thunderbird, a fast & large bird-like creature with a few lizard features. Zak climbed on Lexi's back with a worried look on his face before they both took off, leaving Fiskerton all alone in the Saturday home.
*29 Minutes Later*
Zak & Lexi found Van Rook after they tracked him in the ghost town of Switzerland, the same place where Van Rook & Piecemeal tried to kidnap Fiskerton.
"Where's our family metal head?" Lexi asked.
But Van Rook ignored Lexi's question and started throwing a few concussion grenades at her. Luckily, Lexi managed to conjure up a unbreakable ice shield in front of her before the grenades exploded. Zak charged at Van Rook

    On another note please check out our group  :iconwritersresources: There are tons of resources already uploaded since its arrival one month ago! Please stop by and check it out! Whether your an aspiring writer or a skilled author we would appreciate your membership. We need writers willing to share their experiences and be an example to others! If I can get enough members I would like to eventually find some admins to help manage the group, greet newcomers, enforce rules, and provide assistance.

    I've started a trail folder for members who are interested in feedback. I would like to build a system to manage this if it takes off. I want to make it a critique trade folder for serious members. So if you are a member or plan on joining your thoughts and feedback would be appreciated. Since this is an Alpha test and it ends up not being successful, I'll be putting the idea aside for the time being and we will just solely focus on references and resources!
    
    I plan to upload more as soon as I can but I will be away for a few days. I had a crisis come up and I may not have a home unless I can somehow manage to pull $400.00 bucks out of thin air. With the holidays approaching things will naturally slow down anyway, but don't lose hope, I have tons more to add! So keep an eye out! Don't worry about me, I'll be fine, this sort of thing happens.

Thank you so much to whoever sent me the core donation! I'll make sure to put it to good use!
Research is being stunted online and in my library.... :/ I want to write my book, but there are a few things I want to inject into it. So far the book I'm working on is halted for a bit in hopes I can finish the overall timeline arc for the universe I've created. I just want to make sure everything is polished and tied in.
I'm posting this here as well because I need feedback from my friends on a particular question. The topic is concerning sexual content in literature. 18+ please, and request to keep it sfw as much as possible. forum.deviantart.com/art/liter…

A little about me:
Currently, I'm working on my book series. I'm going to need to draw maps out, and come up with ideas for cover art. I will also be eventually creating a concept art book to go with it. I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to it since my current focus is on writing.
