How are comic books written? Are the panels drawn first then the words are filled in later ? Or is there a manuscript to base the panels on? If so, what does a basic comic manuscript look like ?
Answers will most certainly vary, but here's a boil-down of a start to finish comic.A writer will write a script. Most scripts I've seen are written like a short story or a play, with the dialog broken out from the action. This gives some idea of the pacing of the Josh Flanagan, iFanboyThe writer and artist will then compose a storyboard, which is a very simple version of the comic. Not a lot of detail, maybe arrows drawn to signify the direction of movement or where to focus the reader's eye. This is almost exactly how movies do it. This stage is not necessary, but I find it to be the best process for allowing the writer to get some of their vision of the action into the visuals of the SMR-Comics on deviantARTThen the artist, at this point we call them a Penciller, will start drafting out the sketches of the page that will be the final product. Some comic creators use this as an extension or replacement of the storyboarding phase. The penciller is responsible for defining the cell boundaries (called "gutters"), and the word Carl PetersonTraditionally, the penciller creates space for the word bubbles, and allows for a Letterer (literally someone who writes in the speech bubbles) to fill in the words.More frequently now, this process is being performed digitally, with a typed font replacing the lettering and the bubbles being added 'on top' of the original artwork. Either way, room for the bubbles must be accounted Brian RobinsonWhen the pencil art is finished, it is handed over to an Inker who, you guessed it, inks over the pencils. We love making the old 'tracer' joke in the industry, but even someone who inks their own pencils knows that there's a great deal of finality that happens to the art in this process. Line thickness, blackened space and depth are all solidified during the inking Joe WeemsNext comes the Colorist, who adds colors, shading, shadows, and effects to the artwork. Sometimes the colorist will take advantage of definitions created by the inker, and overlay colors to turn black space into a more vibrant area. Again, this process is getting more complex with the introduction of digital coloring Norman WongI'll skip the production process of going to print, but it's equally fascinating. I encourage you to learn more about this process - and don't let the job titles fool you, a comic can be done by an army or a single creator, and wearing more than one hat in the comics industry is a valuable thing.
What is your review of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019 movie)?
Holy shit. I don’t know even know where to begin.How can people even respect this train wreck of a movie?!Let me preface this by saying: I was a huge fan of the first and second movies. How to Train your Dragon surprised me and is one of my favorite animated films of this decade. It’s something that can rank up there with greats like Wall-E. In my eyes, it’s that good.The second movie continued that story of the first one in a logical and awesome way, growing both Hiccup and Toothless and developing them in good ways, and building the world into an even more fantastical realm following the theme of humans living with dragons in harmony. It was How to Train Your Dragon, but bigger, and much grander in scale. It was the perfect sequel.Then you have this piece of turd that is the third movie.I don’t know who wrote the script for this movie (ok, I lie, I actually know who wrote it), but it felt like the person who wrote this movie didn’t watch the first movie. It spits in the face of everything the first movie stood for and just does a bunch of random, haphazard small scale popcorn scenes that don’t tie together in a meaningful way.First, let’s start with the main conflict. The Hidden World opens with Hiccup and the vikings of Berk raiding dragon hunter ships who are rounding up the wild dragons in the world to use in their own armies. Hey, if you’re the only nation in the world with weapons of mass destruction, it’s a good idea to keep a monopoly and prevent everyone else from arming up, right? Sounds good to me.But apparently there’s a Super Hunter out there who is so amazing he can easily defeat an entire village full of dragons without even trying, and he spooks Hiccup so bad that Hiccup feels his only recourse is to run away from his ancestral home and hide everyone and his army of dragons in a mythical place known as the “Hidden World.”We get a flashback of Hiccup and Stoic, where Stoic tells Hiccup that he just wants to protect Dragons from humans by sending them to a mythical place known as The Hidden World. This is incredible revisionist history, must be Hiccup’s addled brain, because Stoic was a fierce dragon slayer who had no qualms killing dragons and even wanted to commit genocide on a dragon nest. Big change, huh? It's just one symptom of the severe retcon problem this movie has.As Hiccup has to worry about escaping to the Hidden World, he has to deal with his dragon who’s going into heat looking for his lady love — a female Fury in the hands of Mr. Super Hunter who actually hunted them all down to extinction (except of course for this one that magically shows up out of nowhere for him to use against Hiccup. Oh how convenient.)The problem is, Grimmel the Super Hunter is never established as a dangerous threat. He has two drugged up Dragon junkie slaves and… that’s it. How is he even a threat to Berk and its literal army of dragons?There is no sense whatsoever for Hiccup to turn tail and run, but that’s exactly what he does. You might say that he left Berk to find a larger home where his overcrowding dragon and human population can live more freely, but that is absolutely not the reason why he made this decision. He was just spooked and turned tail and ran like a lily-livered coward. It makes absolutely no sense.Anyway, they fly off to run away from Grimmel, but as they settle down to make camp they find out they are being pursued. So what’s Hiccup’s mighty plan? “Hey guys, I know I asked all of you to abandon our ancestral home because I’m scared of Grimmel, but now he’s hot on our tail. So I will go out in very small numbers to personally kill him, instead of fighting with everyone and our army of dragons, because it’s too dangerous to risk everyone! I will go alone, it’ll definitely be a much higher percentage success to do this mission by myself and my useless young friends who can’t even fight without their dragons.”Yes Hiccup, great plan.And so nonsense after nonsense occurs in this dumb script of a movie, which includes an underground cavern under the ocean which somehow doesn’t fill up and get submerged in water, even though it has a direct waterfall from the ocean falling into it like so.And in the end, when Toothless has been subdued and all the dragons captured by Grimmel, what is Hiccup’s plan?After less than a minute of sulking (55 seconds to be exact), Astrid gives Hiccup the most weak,uninspiring and unconvincing pep talk I’ve heard in years, and Hiccup gains his mojo back, and comes up with the amazing plan to….Attack Grimmel and his entire army with nobody but himself and his six friends, and this time without their dragons!And the even dumber thing is, he wins, with no special plan, no special preparation, just a gung ho “Jump in and hope for the best!” suicide approach.There’s a limit to how dumb the script can be, but this movie breached it over and over and came up with senseless plot progression after senseless plot progression. The worst thing is, none of it builds up or is connected thematically with anyone.Why is Astrid able to pep talk Hiccup? No real reason. He just likes hearing her voice. Why is Hiccup afraid of Grimmel? No reason, he just lost to him despite literally having an army of dragons at his beck and call. Why is Hiccup now able to beat Grimmel? Nothing no reason, despite not having an army of dragons at his beck and call. It just happens. With no rhyme or reason.And when the dust settles and they beat the stuffing out of Grimmel and the warlords — something they easily could have done at the start of the movie instead of running away — what do they do?Back to the conflict. “Oh no, this world is a dangerous place for dragons! Buddy, we don’t deserve you. Go and live in The Hidden World away from us evil humans, where you can have children in peace!”At this point in the movie I am just rolling my eyes in disgust. What the hell is wrong with the idiot who wrote this? Not only has it been established that there is no threat to the dragons here as you literally have the strongest fighting force in the world, you just crushed the only threat that was even remotely capable of threatening you and your way of life in Human and Dragon Utopia.Worse, now you are sending away all your dragons, meaning you are effectively disarming yourselves. But guess what? Not every dragon is part of Toothless’ tribe. There are tons of wild dragons out there — these are the same dragons the Warlords were capturing to turn into their dragon armies, remember? Let’s not even talk about Drago and his bewilderbeast, who are still out there somewhere plotting revenge. And now you’ve just given up your only means of stopping everyone else from raising a dragon army.And the ugliest part of all this nonsense, what was the point of How to Train your Dragon again? That’s right: it’s to find a way for dragons and humans to live in harmony. But in this movie, for no good reason, the writer is just saying, “humans will kill dragons, we can’t coexist. So we send you away for your own good.” Only the premise isn’t true since their village is stronger and can beat all dragon hunters and sending them away does nothing because there are still other dragons out there in the wild not beholden to Toothless. So yes, let’s just spit on the theme that the first two movies established in finding a way for humans and dragons to live in harmony, and just get rid of the dragons altogether!But wait, there’s more!Not only did they do such a stupid thing, they decide to later cheapen it, by having Hiccup and Astrid and their kids travel to the Hidden World anyway and play with Toothless.So, uh, why did you send the dragons away again, if you’re just going to come over to visit and play with them anyway?So the Village of Berk is “keeping knowledge of dragons secret” until the day that humans are ready to live in harmony with dragons. So… why did you not just keep all the dragons in your new secret village again? Or go with them to the Hidden World if you’re just going to do that? Heck why didn’t you just go to the secret island where Hiccup’s mom was hiding out all those years, that place was huge and has more than enough space for Berk and all their dragons.I'm sorry, this kind of cop out just cheapens the entire (unnecessary) sacrifice they made and is basically “playing both sides.” They want to make bittersweet ending, but they also want a happy ending (kids movie right?). Sorry, but you can't have your cake and eat it, too.I just watch this movie and I shake my head. How the hell did the guy who did such a great job on the first two movies end up writing such nonsensical bullshit like this? It boggles my mind. It feels like such a sloppy way to end the story of Berk and its dragons.And oh! I saved the best part for last.For some reason, Valka seems to have fried her brain, because she is actually giving Snotlout the time of day. I mean. No. Just no. Especially considering Snotlout was nothing but a useless coward who was absolutely useless the entire movie and gave absolutely no reason for Valka to respect him, much less have a love relationship with him, in any way, shape or form.That… is pretty much what this movie is. A Snotlout, not deserving of anybody’s respect or admiration.
Why did the Communists win the Chinese Civil War?
One man. Nationalist leader, Chiang Kai-shek.If there was ever an instance of the wrong man at the wrong place and at the wrong time, it had to be Chiang.(Please note I am not an expert on the numerous intricacies of China’s political turbulence in the 20th century. I’m leaving out a lot of important information for the sake of time saving.)Rising to power as a second to Chinese leader Sun Yat-sen, Chiang became rather influential in China’s nationalist Kuomintang political movement. At the time, the KMT was quite popular, both for its reformist values and the unifying message it brought to China (which at the time was rife with anarchy and warlordism). Chiang became a general and helped to form the KMT’s army based on his time in the Soviet Union.Now as a military man, Chiang might have been allowed a good place in history had he stayed in his position. He certainly cleaned up some of the Warlords plaguing China and did help to modernize the Chinese army. There was only one problem. In 1925, the KMT’s founder Sun Yat-sen died.Sun Yat-senNow despite being a philosopher, writer, doctor and frequently exiled revolutionary in his wild life before founding the Kuomintang, Sun also represented something that China desperately needed. A unifying demagogue.China at that time was coming off over a century of humiliation at the hands of western powers and internal strife. The Opium Wars, the Taiping Rebellion, the Boxer Rebellion and the fall of its last great dynasty, the Manchu (or Qing). By 1912 China was in a very bad state to say the least. Warlordism and famine was rife and there was no central authority to take control. Someone had to fill the vacuum and with an iron fist, drag China back into unity and save the nation from itself. That man was Sun Yat-sen.Sun was popular amongst a lot of Chinese people for good reason. He was balanced. Despite his inclination towards military conquest in reuniting China, Sun didn’t intend to form a dictatorship. He hoped that after reunification there would be a transition to democratic rule that would finally set China on the right path. He brought together not only conservative remnants of the old dynasty but also new political thinkers and the people who represented an emerging leftist/communist movement. For a while it actually seemed this might work out. Then, on the eve of his triumph, Sun died of cancer. Into his massive shoes stepped Chiang Kai-shek.Now, as per the norm of many 20th century military leaders, Chiang was a hard right conservative and despised having to work with the communist elements of the KMT. Communism appealed to the vast numbers of peasants and landless men inhabiting China. Chiang represented the upperclass wealthy landowners.Less than 2 years after Sun breathed his last breath this difference boiled over and in a spectacularly messy attempt, Chiang tried to purge the communists. This marked the beginning of the Chinese Civil War.KMT agents execute communist sympathizers.The Shanghai MassacreNow, after a lot of bloodshed two primary groups emerged from this. Obviously the most powerful was Chiang and his KMT loyalists based in Nanking. The other was the communist guerrilla CCP under its leader, Mao Zedong. Ignoring the various military and territorial differences, the most striking contrast was perhaps the men who led both groups.Chiang was in many ways an enigma. Ostensibly he represented democratic advancement, but this was tainted by harsh pragmatism and an ingrained conservative machthat soured a lot of his policies. Many of his early political goals were aimed to China’s wealthier modern classes, often to the detriment of the poor population. He wasn’t an easy man to follow or listen to and at times lacked a certain decisiveness that was sorely needed. During the Sino-Japanese war he squandered many opportunities to deal a serious blow to the Japanese war effort and mostly just sat out the war and waited for the Japanese to give up. Rather he spent most of his time and effort trying to exterminate the communist movement. It didn’t help that one of his American aides, General Joseph Stilwell often spoke poorly of him to Washington and much of his reputation world wide has been forever poisoned as a result.Mao on the other hand, has gone down as a natural leader. Now a million, billion words can be written on his post civil war policy, his “Great Leap Forward” (or backward depending on your viewpoint), the chaotic Cultural Revolution and the various legacies he and his little red book left behind. What matters is how he compared to Chiang during the civil war. Mao offered the vast majority of China’s poor population something they had been missing for years. A friend. Chiang was someone far away and represented another emperor or warlord. In exiling Mao with his failed purged, Chiang emboldened the CCP more than they ever could have in the unified government.Mao, in his flight from the KMT allowed himself to hijack his narrative. He became a man of the people who wanted to overthrow the old ways and save China from the KMT. He exploited this feeling of resentment with the current climate and combined with his natural charisma made him a hero of the peasants and swelled his popularity and support in China. By the time the war with Japan was over, Chiang’s government was stagnant and ripe for a regime change in the form of Mao and his refreshed CCP.Chiang lost the war probably before he even sent his troops against the CCP. Often times it’s the weapons, resources and tactics that win a war and write the history books. But sometimes it’s the will of the most powerful, popular and decisive leader who can inspire the most devotion and make the greatest case for his rule. And that leader was not Chiang.
How much has Medium paid out to its writers?
How Much Money Can You Make Writing for Medium? – MediumCan You Make Money Writing on Medium?Medium is the only platform on the Internet right now that allows anyone to sign up, post an article, and get paid earnings immediately. And yes — you definitely can make money through Medium’s Partner Program. The Medium Partner Program has been used by thousands of writers, and it is not a scam (as a few have suggested). However, the amount earned writing for Medium can vary widely.How Much Money do Writers Make on Medium?Screenshots of Medium EarningsIn the era of internet marketing and self help gurus, it’s hard to trust what you read online, especially if it involves earning money.So while this is by no means a thorough scientific answer, the following screenshots offer some testimonials about earning potential on Medium.Given that exceptional results are typically bragged about (and would subsequently by posted) I’m going to assume that these authors all experienced at least short term success that would place them in the upper 10–25% of paid writers on Medium.Medium Earnings | Source: Stella J. McKennaMedium Earnings | Scource: Yann GirardMedium Earnings | Source: Blake GossardMedium Earnings | Source: E PriceMedium Earnings | Source: Medium MasteryEarnings Data Released by MediumAnother way to EMedium Writer Earnings is to look at the data provided by Medium.Here are some other stats Medium included on their Partner Program as of July 2018:$2,059.72 — the highest amount earned for a single story$16,007.02 — the highest amount earned by a single author9.8% — the percentage of active writers who earned over $100Anecdotal Medium ResultsI’ve only just started writing on Medium but it appears that it is realistic for someone putting in decent part time writing effort to make $35–250 per month. I cannot say for sure, but given that the search algorithm weighs story recency so heavily, I’m willing to bet that a writer that can consistently produce marketable content could earn $500-$1500 per month without being featured by the site or major publications. If you can manage to be featured repeatedly, that is when you have the potential to earn thousands of dollars per month.How are Medium Payments Calculated?Photo by rawpixel on UnsplashWhen you enroll in the Medium Partner Program (which is free and open to the public), you can start earning money with your Medium content.With Medium, users are able to read up to 3 articles per month. If readers want to enjoy any content past that limit, they must become a Medium member for the price of $5 per month.When Medium Members clap for an article, a portion of their $5 monthly subscription fee is paid directly to the author.According to Medium:Partner Program writers are paid every month based on how members engage with stories. Some factors include reading time (how long members spend reading a story) and applause (how much members clap). Each member’s $5 per month subscription is distributed proportionally to the stories that the individual member engaged with that month.In other words, you are paid per clap on Medium. Generally speaking, the more claps you receive, the more money you make. Each reader is limited to 50 claps per article (with no total clap limit across all articles they read).The confusing part of this payment system is that your payment per clap varies using a weighted average. Since clap payments are a fraction of a user’s $5 per month subscription fee, users who clap very frequently have lower paying claps than users who only clap a few times per month.This means a single clap ranges from $0.01 to $5 depending on who is viewing and clapping for your article. This assumes the person clapping is a paying member (non paying readers may create a free account and clap however these claps do not factor into your earnings).How Writers Actually get Paid Through Medium?Your Partner Dashboard is updated every Wednesday with what you’ve earned up until the previous Sunday. Your earnings are deposited into your bank account on the last Wednesday of every calendar month. Medium makes payments through Stripe.Should I Lock my Articles and Make Them Exclusively Available to Members?This is a choice each writer must make based on their goals of reader engagement. Generally, by “locking” an article in the Medium Partnership Program, you will receive less views, reads, and overall engagement. However, articles that are not “locked” and are freely available to anyone may get more views but they are not eligible for payment. So if you are a new author it is probably worth at least experimenting with leaving a certain amount of articles “unlocked” to help gain exposure. Remember — you can always start off with an article being accessible to everyone and later choose to make it available exclusively through the Medium Partner Program (or vice versa).Do I Need to be a Previously Published Author or Professional Writer to Succeed on Medium?Partner Program stories are rewarded by readers who believe writers should be compensated for the quality of their ideas, not the attention they attract for advertisers or their status as a previously published author. So, no — you do not need to be a “professional author” to succeed on Medium.Do I Need to Promote my Articles Outside of Medium?Medium won’t be the right platform to promote all types of articles. However, certain industries have really great, established audiences.Topics that do really well on Medium include:Life learningBusinessEntrepreneurshipStartupsCultureTechnologyPoliticsEven if you are not publishing articles focused at the above topics, Medium can still prsufficient traffic:Medium Internet Traffic | Source: SimilarWebHowever, if you really want to boost your Medium article views, I would suggest sharing your article on other social media platforms.I recently posted a link to my Medium article on Uber Vomit Fraud on LinkedIn to see whether it would gain any traction.

What is a sign of amateur fiction writing?
Oh, there loads now, keeps changing every year.I think the most prevalent of these is the insufferable Mary-Sue[1] character which originally started off in fanfictions but ended up creeping into actual fiction. The most (un)popular ones I can remember are Bella Swan from Twilight and Anita Blake from The Mortal Instruments. Now you can actually create a likeable Mary Sue and make it work but that would require skills. Like Nancy Drew, she is a pretty good Mary Sue but nobody really hates her. Anyway, if you see any book with a main character, a couple of hot supernatural creatures and a love story…well, beware.Poor world-building is also the weakness of an amateur. I liked The Hunger Games but the world-building was meh. if you cannot build a proper world, you're relying too much on willing suspension of disbelief and sometimes you can push that too far.Too many plot twists. Don't bend the damn thing like a pretzel.Poor character development. This ties in with the first point I made. Sometimes, it is difficult to think of flaws for your protagonist. So you make him or her some kind of demigod whose word is law. That's annoying. Or, they’ll give the hero a paper-thin flaw such as “being an orphan” “stubbornness” or “clumsiness” which only enhances their personality, instead of producing effective consequences for their actions.Copying known writers and reproducing their works. Don't. Don't do it. Are you listening, author of Divergent? How about you Maze Runner?Repetitive expressions, especially where the dialogue is concerned. Use of too much “he sniggered” “she postulated” “they muttered”, feels artificial. It is better to stick to “said” except when you really want to emphasise how the character said something.Using too many big words, especially where those words are not needed. Ever heard the quote “brevity is the soul of wit / And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes”? Yeah, well, keep stuff as relevant as possible. Extra words and florid sentences become periphrastic. They also look like you're trying to show off. Everyone shows off, but good writers do it in moderation.The reader can tell when you're using a character as a mouthpiece. At least most of the time we can. We can readily feel the difference between the character and the author. So, don't put your words in the character's mouth unless you have the patience and the skill to create a world and a situation which gives you sufficient cause to make a character act in a certain way.Footnotes[1] Mary Sue - TV Tropes
