Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
For a while now my goal in life has been to eventually get an animated show(preferably 3d though only if the quality could at the very least be almost as good as advent children). And I feel that a good first step would be to start writing my idea as a novel, which i will eventually turn into a comic, which eventually I would like to turn into a series. I was just wondering, those of you who are seasoned writers and artists, what are some good things to keep in mind when writing a fiction story? What things should I avoid doing that may turn people off to my story? Would making short bios for my characters(something I plan on doing, literally, right after Im done posting this) be a good idea to get people to actually connect with them easier.
Now I know my above mentioned goals are somewhat...lofty, maybe even unrealistic depending on who you're asking. But I hope with practice, and a well enough told story Ill be able to realize them. Thanks ahead for any advice I may or may not recieve.
