kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, June 10, 2019



Last week, I was in a classroom and the plans on the desk were to show a DVD. “Oh good, Zootopia it is!” I said as I happily loaded the disc into the computer. I had already seen the movie three years ago when it came out in theaters, so ...

Writing Mental Illness: A Good Example (Part 3)

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Feb. 9, 2019



Having discussed a general approach to writing characters with mental disorders (with a lot of thoughtful comments by you further enriching what I had to say!) it's only right that we wrap up this very quick analysis with an example of a story that properly portrays them.

Banes at 12:00AM, May 17, 2018

I may have told this story in this spot before, but years ago I worked with this book called “The Artist's Way”, which included fun exercises meant to unlock the creativity most of us adults don't access regularly.
