Burnout

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, March 16, 2018



I want to take a quick break for a second to talk about something creators go through but often don’t talk about. It is hard to see it coming and even harder still to lift yourself out of once you are there. This post is about addressing creative burnout ...

Showing and Telling

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, March 10, 2018



Anyone who ever dabbled in creative writing or any sort of narrative work, had the phrase “show, don't tell” hammered into them. The sheer anxiety of being caught ‘telling’ rather than ‘showing’ made us all think in terms I assume only exhibitionists do.

Points of view - part two - Unreliable

Banes at 12:00AM, March 8, 2018



Last week we talked a little pov basics.

This time, how about we talk the fascinating device called the Unreliable Narrator. For anyone who doesn't know, this type of narration (usually first person in prose, but not necessarily) tells the story in question…but is not necessarily giving an ...

Points of View - part one

Banes at 12:00AM, March 1, 2018



Welcome to March!

I thought I'd try a connected theme of Thursday articles this month. I've had some half-baked ideas floating around on the subject of “Point of View”. They haven't coalesced completely but I think I can figure out four articles on this topic over the ...

LISTEN!

Jason Moon, author of Crater's Edge, messaged me about some comments he had. He was perturbed about reader reaction to his storyline and wasn't sure how to handle the comments. I told him that those sorts of comments are the very greatest compliment an author can get ...

LISTEN!

READERS are a massive part of Drunk Duck! Actually readers are a huge part of ANY comic. But Drunk Duck tends to focus far more on creators than perhaps we should… This idea was inspired by a newspost of Tantz's ...

We are only a couple of days away from the end of 2017; another year done and dusted and placed on the shelf. Is this a year you’ll look back on with fondness, or has this been an up and down adventure for you? As we gear up for ...

The Turn

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Dec. 23, 2017



There are few scenes more dramatic, more alluring and more riveting than the moment when the one of the main characters of a story makes the Turn: the moment where they change their convictions- for better or worse.

If properly prepared, the Turn is an extremely cathartic and exciting moment ...

The Dream Sequence

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Dec. 9, 2017



Kim Luster’s The Good Walker webcomic is what inspired me to write this newspost about dreams.
Depicting a character’s dreams in a story is a very powerful and useful tool! Especially when it comes to visual narratives, such as webcomics and movies, a dream sequence can communicate to ...

Figuring Out Dating as an Introspective Comic Nerd

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Dec. 4, 2017


(I drew this in my comic ten years ago.)

I am going to broach a subject that we do not openly discuss in the forums, or at least is lacking an open channel for discussion: Dating.
