 What's more important, plot or character?     That's a tough question to answer. A great mystery plot will keep me turning the pages until the end. But delightful, intriguing characters whom I can…Continue

As a promotional tool, animated gifs is one way to bring attention to a product. My character is many things and being a gossip-monger is one of them. See her in action.

I'm starring the character I've developed in a webcomic. Here's the second trailer of her photo shoot.

Hello Ladies. Anyone here have a moment (or a few, actually) to spare? I am looking some feedback on the 10th chapter of my YA Silent Voices. It is written from a omniscient third-person narrative, focusing on one or two of the for MCs feelings (or silenced voices) in each chapter.

Silent Voices: Flowers and Flirts

I have taken forever to actually get down to writing this chapter (January blues turning to March blues!)

It would be very kind of you to give me any positive, negative or constructive feedback you may be willing to share. Thank you very much in advance! :)

As a rational, spiritual human is she obligated to save this man's life? She stays put and watches the fire creep within inches of him. She remains silent.

Silent Voices: Meet and Greet

I am slightly worried about the pace of things in my writing...the story takes place between September to March ( around 6 months), but I seem to be bogged down in specific scenes so far. Although I do have a few leaps in the middle, but it still seems to have taken a sluggish pace. Any advice?

Silent Voices: Four extraordinary people, young of blood, kind at heart, strong of will, but rash at actions...living in their own worlds, following isolated paths to their own goals...when the paths cross, the worlds shall crash...into a complex bonds of relationships...Because in a world where wants precede needs, only two can survive happily...
