Literature
Characterization and Names

Characterization and Nomenclature:
What's in a name?

As an author, one of the most important tasks in writing a story is building a character. Every small trait that a writer leaves, builds, and hints at, draws a reader into the story and gives them an image of each character, be it protagonist, antagonist, or miscellaneous extra. However, many writers overlook one of the strongest traits that a character can have: a name. Nomenclature can be one of the most powerful assets that a writer has in their endless battle to build a lifelike character.
The uses of a name
The craft of literature is always at some level a decision-making process. While names need not always be used, there should always be a conscious decision that a writer makes about a name. When making a conscious decision, one must be able to list the benefits that the choice yields: if one names a character "Charles," they should also to some extent be able to explain why th

NewVS.Old Ellery quick redraw monochrome
I was tired of not-having-drawn recently, so I just told myself, "damn it, draw something". And then I did. The old picture is like... prooobably the first time I'd ever drawn anything resembling a decent picture of Ellery. As you can see, I didn't have a real good grasp on what his outfit was really supposed to be like... or how to draw. New one's not fab, because it's mostly a quick sketch, but hey. Time spent: maybe an hour.

Addisson and Isabelle phone paint
Hey-ho, it's more phone art! (Because the PC is for writing these days, apparently.) My OCs, Addisson and Isabelle, aka pissy mermaid and scruffy knight girlfriend. 
Painting is hard. Painting on a tablet? ...It's hard. XD BUT I'm trying. I mean, I tried. Haven't drawn anything much recently; this was from a few months ago. 
Anyway. If you want more of these two, my gallery is rife with 'em, so take a look. Especially in the "Original Characters" and "Damselco" folders.

Sagittarius in the canyon
Another thing I doodled earlier in the year on my phone. (It's a Galaxy Note II, and it may be a little old, but I love it.) 
I'm not gonna label it as such, but this is technically an Overwatch fanart, given that I was thinking of my Overwatch fic "Sagittarius" when I painted it. Given that, you might be able to guess it's an AU where McCree is a centaur, and if you pay attention to his left arm, you /might/ guess that he's been involved with the Shimada clan. I've only managed to write the first chapter so far ^^; but if I get any further in it, I'll drop a link here, I guess. 
Not 100% pleased with the background, because I'm still low-key teaching myself basic painting techniques (and lighting), but it was fun, so there's that.

It's really been an awfully long time since I've been on dA much. I still like the site, sure, but in recent years I've tended towards Tumblr, and in recent months I've been mostly offline in general. Let me tell you, it has been refreshing. 

But I still do like to come back here every so often. (And good thing, too; I had a fun note waiting for me.) 

TBH I just came back because I was looking for a few fanarts I thought I'd saved, but then I guess I just remembered seeing them in my favorites folder, because they're /nowhere/ on my PC. I'm actually scrolling through my massively long favorites list as we speak, but because they seem to have done away with pages, it now takes forever for my computer to catch up, every couple of rows. So, while it loads, I'm here in another browser, doing this. 

If you're curious, I'd say very little has changed in my life since last time you may have talked to me. It's like that, as I get older. In fact, so little has changed, I probably said the exact same thing in my last post. =P 

I have, so far, spent much of this year writing. It was my New Years Resolution, in fact! I somehow managed to eke out an ending to my longfic, "Rogue" (HINABN)-- which I guess I ought to consider cross-posting here! Or linking, at least. For posterity's sake. I mean, it took me two damn years, so, y'know. After finishing Rogue in March, I madly started like 7 FFXV fics, none of which really took off unfortunately, and then spent two focused months on the first 3rd of a Fallout 4 fic (as of yet unnamed). At the start of this month I got super lazy and spent two weeks reading fanfic like my life depended on it, then remembered that I'm a huge One Piece fan, started rewatching the series and playing that damn phone game I can't put down, and started a Coby-centric fic that is probably going nowhere. Then, spontaneously (or perhaps because I was reading Guardians of the Galaxy fic??? and I love Rocket because obviously fluffy woodland creatures that ride on their tall partners' shoulders and like to throw sarcastic quips are A++) I got back into frigging Jak and Daxter, listened to the same song probably literally 500 times, and starting writing a fic for /that/ series. 

Which is where I am now, and why I'm scrolling wildly through my favorites list. 

Funny too, because that was what the note I got was about. Wild stuff. =] 

More than anything, this year I've really found that I'm not capable of much multi-tasking. In any given day, I find I can focus on maybe 2 different things, work aside. On a larger scale, that also applies to months and years. Today: that J&D fic and socializing. This month: writing and One Piece. This year: writing and video games. 
It's good to realize this about myself, as annoying as it is. Realizing it helps me deal with it. It helps me not be mad at myself for not... doing more, you know? I keep thinking, "God, I haven't drawn almost anything this year!" but then I realize that in order to do that, I have to sacrifice one of the other things I'm focused on, and it takes time to switch modes. Damn, if I hadn't gotten sucked into reading mode, I'd probably still be going strong on that FO4 fic. But that's what happens. 

Anyway, I'm off to continue looking through that massive favorites list, whew, then trying to find a thing for a person, and then dinner, and then work, and then rinse-repeat. (Well, not the favorites list and the finding thing. You know.) 

I hope the lot of you are doing well. Don't hear from you much anymore, but please do leave a comment if you feel so inclined. As much as time runs by and draws lines between us, I still love all the people I've been brought close to from the art and fandom communities, and I wish the best for you all. <3

Cadoba and Solei -- OCs
Hey look, art I actually did today instead of months ago. Here's a centaur OC, Cadoba, and her boyfriend-I-guess, Solei. With and without shading, just so I can impress myself.

OH. I thought the name was familiar. At first I was like....Facebook? I rarely post art on Facebook. Maybe you were following my old account and that's how you got to my Facebook? My old one was "HeartlessAssassin" and I had...very much outgrown it lol

Ahh, right. I knew you had to be someone I'd known from before. It's funny... I wonder what fandoms we were in together? I don't usually follow people willy-nilly.
Ah, anyway, I hear it's your birthday today, so, Happy Birthday! =D

Hello! This is a very random question, and a blast from the past, but do you still have a copy of the bonus chapter from Demyrie's fanfic Just Another Mission? I just reread it and saw in the comments she might have passed it on to you? It's nowhere online... Like I said, random! But I'd be very grateful!
