Approaching Horror

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 8, 2020



Though I am certainly no stranger to handling the horrific in my creations, horror as a genre is something I never dabbled in before.

Horror scares me the same way comedy does!

While I can crack jokes, I always feel I can never do it on demand, or consistently think ...

Choosing Your Genre

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 1, 2020




For better or for worse, we are creatures of categorizations. We love to label things, and to sort them into neat little boxes so that we are absolutely certain we know what to expect when dealing with each one. It is that sense of familiarity that we are looking for ...

Wounded Characters

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 25, 2020



There is a reason why in fanfiction archives there's a whole category of stories called “hurt/comfort”, where one of the main characters of a specific IP is injured, and others (usually an unlikely person or whoever the author is shipping with the injured one) have to take care ...

How Little and How Much?

Banes at 12:00AM, July 16, 2020



In the early weeks of the pandemic, I started updating my comic more. Shortly after that, I took two weeks off work and went even harder.

A Binary Approach to Motivation

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 11, 2020




I've talked a lot about motivations in my articles. And how could I not? My scientific field aside, what makes us behave in certain manners or way is a question that has occupied entire schools of thought in psychology, philosophy, political science, even AI and (bio)chemistry.

There are ...

What if Nobody Ever Sees It

Banes at 12:00AM, June 25, 2020



Early in my writing efforts, I mostly did short stories. Scenes, really. I'd imagine a whole story around the scene I wrote and drew. I did a series of scenes about two private detectives hired to solve a 20-year old murder. I had no idea who did it, why ...

Revisionist Historical Fiction

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, May 30, 2020



So over here on Greek TV, there's this very popular drama series that happens to be set in a Greek mainland village in the 1950s, and sells itself as ‘authentically representing an era’. It started off very promising, as a crime drama + family drama kind of story where three ...

Knowing What You Write

Banes at 12:00AM, May 14, 2020



Last week we talked about “writing what you know” … but how about ‘knowing what you write’? I knew I wanted to do this one as soon as I posted the previous article…just for the title.

In a TV show, series of books, movie, printed comic series, or newspaper strip ...

After Marriage

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, April 25, 2020



Usually in adventures, thrillers and other stories, when the main characters are romantically involved, the B plot (or even the A plot) is the ‘will they/won’t they' question: will they get together in the end, usually with a happy end scene of marriage, or some such thing. Romance ...
