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.
Interesting that Enter hates the All Just A Dream thing, considering this episode of GA: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 though but this 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.
He obviously did it the right way, you dummyInteresting that Enter hates the All Just A Dream thing, considering this episode of GA:
He wrote it in the way he told people how should use the cliche in his writing tips so he is basically saying that people shouldn't use this cliche unless they do it Enter's way.Interesting that Enter hates the All Just A Dream thing, considering this episode of GA:
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.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.
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?Didn't his precious pony show have a love potion episode?
Goddammit I read that line in JelloApocalypse's voice.MY VIDEO GAME CARTAGE IS HAUNTED
This. If anything, he's Andrew Dobson's literary counterpart! (minus the halfway decent skills that Dobson somewhat possessed a while ago...)It's disheartening to know that young aspiring writers are taking advice from this guy.
I skimmed though it and this advice actually isn't that bad or at least compared to his other bullshit. I was expecting him to bring up MLP as good slapstick and then say the character has to get hurt as little as possible.
