Hello everyone. I've decided to start a blog, partly because it sounds amusing, and partly because I want to remind myself of everything I should be doing while writing. This blog will dispense whatever sage advice I happen to have to offer, along with the side tangents and other thoughts that come to mind while writing these things. I will have space at the end of each blog for a more condensed version of the advice, for the sake of clarity and really making sure I get all this stuff. I'm still working on making it look pretty, and I probably won't have it super fancy until sometime in January. Let's face it, I'm never going to get around to it.

Repetition

Posted February 8th, 2016 at 8:18 AM by Bardothren (Writing Advice, Assuming I Know Anything)

Salutations everyone! I was debating what catchphrase, if any, to use for this blog. Salutations is fine and all, but I was thinking that I needed to come up with a better catchphrase... and that's when it hit me. So, I'm still coming up with a better catchphrase.

If you're wondering how my pinky is doing, it's much better now. Still tingles a little, but it's not nearly as bad as a week ago. That's good... because I have nine days to write eleven pages for a story that I haven't...

MICE

Salutations! Woohoo, no "Hello" to start off this one! Anyways, there's something funny about my blog I want to address, but first, a funny life story from yours truly.

For the past week, I've been losing circulation in my left pinky. At first, it was sporadic, and mainly happened while I was typing, but for the last two days, it's been constantly asleep. It's been bugging the hell out of me, and I didn't figure out what it was until last night. Anywho, in Orchestra rehearsal,...

Hello - wait, no, let's try something new this week. I always start by saying hello, so let's go with... Salutations!
Spoiler: Let's not spoil RWBY for anyone
Yes, in honor of Penny. RIP Penny.


And crap, the blog still starts with hello. Oh well, let's pretend the backspace button doesn't exist and keep going.

So, last week I said I would post to my blog again on either Tuesday or Thursday, and while it may be either of those days in your time zone, by me it's Wednesday. You may be wondering why I'm posting...

Plot Holes and Plot Convenience

Posted January 21st, 2016 at 5:38 PM by Bardothren (Writing Advice, Assuming I Know Anything)

Hello again everyone. For my quick update, today marks the third day I've been back in school, and let me tell you, it's been rough. I had to read a whole 300 page book in two days, and after working three hours on a circuit diagram for my research group, the computer crashed and I lost all of it. But, the good news is I practically have nothing to do until next Wednesday, so woohoo!

And now for this week's topic...

Emotion

Posted January 15th, 2016 at 9:08 PM by Bardothren (Writing Advice, Assuming I Know Anything)

Hello however many people read this thing. I've been operating on an every-six-day schedule for some reason. Anywho, I'm going back to Madison tomorrow, and my classes resume in a few days. My schedule looks extremely light, but that's because I have two 600 level courses that don't show up on it :| Ah well, I should be fine, since the rest is all English fluff and orchestra.

Okay, with that out of the way, it's time for the topic of the week: Emotion. How do you put a character's...
