The Table Scene

Tantz_Aerine at 7:01AM, Dec. 3, 2016



It’s the ultimate horror.
You are trapped with your very own demons.
You cannot escape- you will not be excused.
You will need to look at them, as they look back at you, and do a reckoning.

At least until dessert.

In my opinion, in all creative writing/art ...

Your Self-Insert is Everywhere

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 26, 2016




I came across a little blurb the other day about Mary Sues, and fanfiction, and how the writer of a fanfiction is basically writing a fantasy, inserting themselves as the character at the center of attention, immaculate, glittering and perfect. Basically everything you want to smack into a different galaxy ...

Constructing Suspense

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 19, 2016



Everyone loves a good thriller, a titillating mystery, a tale full of twists and turns (that make sense), something that challenges you to find the answer before you’re given it at the final act.
I’m not sure how many like sitting down to construct them.

Don’t get ...

When Death Comes…

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 12, 2016



No matter what the genre, plot and general tone of your comic, death always is absolute.

Or alternatively, death is used as a very efficient comedy device (if anyone remembers the numerous ways Dirk dies in Dragon’s Layer). Unsurprisingly so, I think, since real comedy is based on tragedy ...

What is it that needs to be original? (No, it’s not the story)

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 5, 2016



The old frenetic push to any creator to be ‘original’- especially, though not limited, in literature, in comics and the arts in general is nothing new. It pretty much is the first question anyone has when trying to assess a work of art: is it original?
