. . . I'm just thinking to make Otome, but I want to try breaking some formula I've found in most Otome (which is the lack of personality in main character, I found that most of them are Mary Sue, and when they are seduced a bit by the male characters they usually fall in very easily). However, the...

Thank you, sweety! -- Hopefully, you found it useful too. I definitely did! It's odd (or not) how I didn't even realise these points until I read this post. I'm glad to have had my eyes opened, though! Sometimes the obvious goes right past our eyes. It's like when you're looking for the aspirin in ...

And something else I think is interesting. When people do "break the formula," if they are successful, what often happens is that what they did often is just given a new genre title, and the new genre ends up coalescing around a new set of formula that are then often just as rigidly uphel...

OMG I love personality tests like this so much! I had lots of fun when playing this game, seriously :D I'm so glad you enjoyed my little game. ♥ I had a hard time understanding some aspects of my personality though (specially the ones that were related with what I wrote because I couldn't reall...

. . . Before you decide how the story would end, I suggest you to ask yourself, how much time and effort do you want to use for this project. If you have no problem with this, then I can suggest you some things : 1. Read as many stories, or watch as many movies as you can. 2. Try to be the characte...

Everything alright over there, Okie? Did somebody go and commit unspeakable acts upon your respective Cheerios? I can't help but be curious as to what sparked this. Oh, my Cheerios are just fine, but my Lucky Charms were absolutely Desecrated! (Couldn't resist.) As for the cause of this...? Let's j...

I will write where I intend to make CGs, thanks for the tip! And I haven't actually made a mockup... Maybe I will do that first and send the mockup to you? I think drawing will make me feel less insecure about my story (since I have more confidence in my art) and like you just said I don't have to ...

. . . I wonder if I should ask more specific from the beginning? This is an important reading for people who want critiques and I'm glad I didn't miss it. YES! Be specific about what you want to know about your work from the very beginning. This makes it easier on you and the person checking your w...

Thanks! I'll try to post it's okay to pm me-- my work was also posted in the adult forum so maybe more people were embarrassed about replying. (Also there are just fewer people over there in general.) I would love to have you look it over (and being brutal is 100% okay, sometimes my feelings are hu...

This was rather fun to play. I took it twice in different moods. Second time made me look rather cold (love is easily replaceable :lol: ). Thanks for making this :) I'm glad you enjoyed the game! -- Ah... You really shouldn't take anything the game says too seriously. I'm not a professional psychoa...

. . . I think if you can answer some of these questions, she'll start being relevant. I agree. -- The more we know about the main character's personality, and more importantly; their Flaws, the easier it will be to make this character the center of the story. For example: -- The story of Joan of Ar...

. . . There are two types of stories. Character-driven or plot-driven. Character-driven ones shine regardless of a re-hashed plot because the characters are just so good. I personally prefer character-driven to plot-driven but that's just how I work. Character-Driven stories still have plots, they ...

This is a good tutorial, thanks OokamiKasumi. I will keep this in mind-- I'm glad you liked it! -- Cutting loose once in a while can be soooo refreshing! . . . when I posted my work not too long ago asking for critique I was pretty specific on what part of the story I wanted critique on, and didn't...

This was cute, I enjoyed getting immersed in it and walking through the environment/s. Seems I'm suicidal - I just can't stop climbing over that bloody wall. Struck a bit of odd phrasing... I see, so you're out walking at night in clear with lots of stars, autumn weather. Thanks for making ...
