    When to End a Scene

    December 11, 2017 by SolZen321

    Hey guys, Sol here, for another blog, this time we're not doing tropes, or simple concepts but a thing of opinion. When is the right time to end a scene, an arc, or even a story/episode? For you see, the issue is more than just a simple scene.

    Before we continue, please, please go and check my blog on what makes a scene. If you don't understand what a scene is, this will not be as helpful., I'm not going to explain that in the comments...

    Aside from that, this blog is also assuming you understand basic writing, have written and wirte, even if not here on this Wiki.

    To make a long story short, in my opinion, (< take note of that) the best time is when something important happens. Now when I say, 'important', I am purposely being vag…

    Relatable Characters

    December 5, 2017 by SolZen321

    Well I said I would do this, so here I am, let's talk about making characters relatable. A fair warning my definition of that may not the same as most people.

    There is a logical fallacy about what 'relatable' characters. People often assume that to be relatable is 'to be like me', that I, the reader/viewer understand because it's something I've gone through. This is wrong. Why, you may ask? Because it forgets and sometimes insults, the concept...of empathy.

    Empathy is our ability to feel remorse, pity, and even attempt to understand another person's problems and/or point of view. Take note of that last one. It does not mean we have to share our opinions, and 'share' I mean have the same opinions.

    You do not have to make your characters have a…

    Protagonists and Heroism

    December 4, 2017 by SolZen321

    Sol here, I have returned, and now I'm going to talk about Main Characters, but also 'heroism', mainly, how to tell when a hero is done well.

    This should be simple, its the main character. This person is the one whose perspective we mainly follow for the story, and who generally gets the most character development. That last part is often why Ultras with human forms are often considered better heroes than Ultras with human hosts, because in the later part, the characterization and character growth of the civilian identity and hero identity are often separated, unless you're X and you actually get to talk to people.

    However, one thing you should note, while in Ultraman, the protagonist is typicaly the hero, Protagonists are not always heroic. …

    Alternate Ultra Beam Names

    November 29, 2017 by SolZen321

    So this may have been long overdue. This blog is not to give hints or tips to help with writing, no this is for the user that wants to come up with their own name for their Ultra's finisher beam.

    This is not a help guide on attacks, just some food for thought, for those looking to name their character's signature beam.

    This is something, I myself am guilty of. That is naming the main character's special attack '(Character Name) Shot/Shoot or Ray'.

    Now, as should be obvious, this is not really a problem, the 'issue', if it can be called that, is basically everyone does that. In function there is nothing wrong with it, but the point of this blog is to help people be more original.

    These, from what I've noticed are other suffixes for Ultra Beam n…

    When to be Mature or Dark

    November 25, 2017 by SolZen321

    Sol here, for another helpful blog. This time, it for a topic, that in hindsight, has long been overdue. Today let us talk about maturity in writing, specifically what it is and what it isn't. Despite what may come up, this is not a blog about comedy and parody and when to use them, I believe another user plans to write a blog on that, and I more than feel him more suited to write on that topic, and it write competently than I. No, let's talk about maturity, i.e. how to be mature with your writing.

    Firstly, let's establish what we are talking about. Now, there are many people who define maturity differently, in different context, but this blog is not here to tell you how to be an's here to tell you how to write for them.

    Mature wr…
