characterdesigninspiration:

The latest generator, the random demon maker! Complete with horns, wings, and (mostly) unappealing personality traits, you can make your own demon in varying degrees of non-human-ness.  

(Fun fact you can technically get my headcanon for demon!Dean on Supernatural [but that’s probably like a one in a million chance])

characterdesigninspiration:

It’s been a while since I made a generator, so here’s a companion to the Demon Generator.  You can get some pretty unconventional angels from some of these combinations.  If you do make a character with this, tag ‘characterdesigninspiration’ so I can see them!

To Play: click and drag each gif or take a screenshot of the whole thing.

Building a Character Arc

thecharactercomma:

One of the best parts of an awesome character is watching them grow and change over the course of the novel. Even if you’re planning a multi-book series and they don’t complete their arc in book 1, they still should be making progress.

Basically, a character arc shows…

What’s up with active voice and passive voice?

To better understand passive voice, we should compare it to active voice and see how the two differ.

In active voice, the subject performs the action expressed in the verb:

  • John (the subject) ate nine doughnuts this morning.
  • I (the subject) finished the 25-page essay last night.
  • The Doctor (the subject) greeted me.

In passive voice, the recipient or target of the action gets promoted to the subject position. 

We can recognize passive-voice expressions because the verb phrase will often (but not always) include a form of “be,” such as am, is, was, were, are, or been. Another way to recognize passive-voice sentences is that they may include a “by (someone or something)" phrase after the verb:

  • Nine doughnuts were eaten by John this morning.
  • The 25-page essay was finished by me last night.
  • I was greeted by the Doctor.

Let’s look at an example in which passive voice is clearly not inferior to active voice. In the active-voice sentence “I love you,” the focus is on me (I), not on you. To some people, this sentence can sound narcissistic.

But if we turn it into the pass-voice sentence “You are loved by me,” the focus is on you (the person I love), not me. To some people, this can be more romantic than the active-voice sentence.

Therefore, the passive voice can sometimes be an effective stylistic device (in small doses).

All of you are loved by Finn the Human (passive), and Finn the Human loves all of you (active).

Teacher: You're late to class. What's your excuse?
Me: ...
Me: ....
Me: *looks into the camera*
Me: You thought I was gonna use that meme, didn't you? Well, I'm not. But statistically you'd assume I was because of the chat layout of this post since majority of these "I came out to have a good time and I'm honestly feeling so attacked right now" posts are made that way. You must be so relieved by now, since you probably saw a hundred of these around tumblr and your dashboard. But listen, my brothers and sisters-
Me: *stands on top of teacher's desk as students look at the camera too*
Me: WE WILL NO LONGER LIVE IN FEAR OF THIS MEME. WE WILL TUMBLR THROUGH AND SOMETIMES WE WILL FALL AND SCRAPE OUR KNEES AND MAYBE BLEED A BIT BECAUSE WE'RE NOT USED TO THE OUTSIDE STRUCTURES OF THE WORLD BUT WE WILL NEVER STAY DOWN. WE WILL FIGHT.
Teacher: Please get off the furniture.
Me: *looks at teacher*
Me: I came out to have a good time and I'm honestly feeling so attacked right now.

everybody should have this on their blog

  • if you want me to add anything just write me. i’ll add that and update the post!

I love all the click and drag games on Tumblr and after I read an article about diversity in YA books, I wanted to make a click and drag “game” myself. (i think this was the article, but i’m not sure, sorry)
