@Konstantinos: I don't think anybody's said that, but yes, if that's the furthest you'll go in complex stuff, you have to find stuff that's better and better-written.

Since Enter made a new writing tips entry, I figured putting it here would be more fitting than leaving it in the general thread.

He even offers advice on writing things that deal with love. He still manages to sound bitter.


As if I needed more proof that MrEnter has no idea what he is talking about. Alright, we do I start?

Awkward and in Love (as well as anything else regarding love)
I'm sorry, isn't MrEnter an asexual or aromantic or whatever-the-hell-it-is? That would mean that he's indifferent to love/sex, right? So why the hell does he think he's qualified to talk about love? I am now fully convinced that he's not asexual, but just another loveshy nerd who calls himself that because nobody wanted to touch his penis in high school.

Bullying Just Because
Of course, because every cartoon sperg has to rant about bullies in cartoons, not because they actually are cliched, but because they themselves were bullied and couldn't/didn't do anything about it so they'll take it out on cartoon bullies because they know they won't fight back.

Daddy Works Too Much
I'll take "Projecting His Personal Issues" for $200, Alex. Seriously, I wouldn't doubt that his own father had the same issue. Oh and "it's not realistic?" Gee, it's almost like entertainment is trying to take us out of reality and make us feel for a father-son moment.

Internet/Cell Phones
This I think is the dumbest from his list. So he doesn't believe that internet and cell phones should be included because it makes the cartoons too omnipotent? When has this problem ever occurred in anything? And what if the cartoon takes place in today's society? It would be kind of weird to not have cell phones or internet.

Anyway, those are my two cents. Take them for what they're worth.

Some of the ones he puts can be very annoying if done incorrectly such as All Just a Dream, Amnesia, The Chosen One, and Explaining the Wizard. The other ones he lists are all bullshit but his reasoning is bullshit throughout the page. He is practically telling users not to use any cliches. If he actally knew what he was talking about he would have added the cliche MY VIDEO GAME CARTAGE IS HAUNTED as a cliche to not use.

Interesting that Enter hates the All Just A Dream thing, considering this episode of GA:

Also, the worst "All just a dream" scenarios have everything else about the story be as realistic as possible
Don't you mean best ones?
Does Enter hate something that chalenges his mind?

I think he doesn't want people to use the cell phones because he overreacted to a terrible show known as Pixel Pinkie and possibly the Replacements (if he has seen it at least). Since cell phones didn't work there, he believes that they should be banned in all cartoons which is terrible logic.

Didn't his precious pony show have a love potion episode?
Come to think of it - didn't his OTHER favourite show, Gravity Falls, have a Love Potion-esque plot too? One where Mabel had good intentions to help Robbie with his inability to move on from Wendy and was clearly NOT an attempt to get Robbie to rape Tambry or vice versa?

I don't know - to me, it isn't that somebody uses a love potion, but rather, what their intentions are with said love potion.

MY VIDEO GAME CARTAGE IS HAUNTED
Goddammit I read that line in JelloApocalypse's voice.

It's disheartening to know that young aspiring writers are taking advice from this guy.
This. If anything, he's Andrew Dobson's literary counterpart! (minus the halfway decent skills that Dobson somewhat possessed a while ago...)

Do we have a thread for his writing, actually (the non-GA stuff)? I'd love to see someone tear that apart.

Edit: I see he's been watching some old cartoons, after all. Odd, seeing as Red Hot Riding Hood's protagonist committed suicide at the end.
