Someone asked me how i made this graphic, and it’s a bit hard to explain because typography is very subjective and specific, but I tried. In this post I will include:

  • general resources/tutorials/fonts
  • how to set up a graphic/typography poster
  • how to make a banner/ribbon
  • different techniques to try with fonts

Good question, palindromichannah.

Few topics in grammar and usage inspires as much dread and confusion as lay vs. lie. This post will allay your fears.

Things you should know about each of your characters

These are what I would consider to be the most basic, bare-bones questions of character creation.

Body Language: What Eyes Can Tell You

fictionwritingtips:

We’ve talked a lot about body language and how it can be used in your writing, but not much has been said about analyzing the body language of the eyes. A lot can be inferred by utilizing eye body language in your writing, so hopefully this will help you learn more about…

Hey, guys!  So, we’re all familiar with Cyberpunk and Steampunk, but there are so many more alternate histories/speculative science fiction genres out there!  I came across this handy-dandy infographic and figured I could share a bit of these punk genres for anyone interested.

  • Steampunk
    Roughly covers the Western world during the mid- to late-19th century (ie:  Victorian era, US wild west, etc.), and sometimes up to the Edwardian era.
  • Dieselpunk
    1920s up through WWII, ending at just about the Cold War.
  • Decopunk
    A cleaner, artistic, more “optimistic” version of Dieselpunk (same time period)
  • Clockpunk
    Covers the time of the Renaissance (think da Vinci)
  • Atompunk
    Cold War era, ie: the Space Race
  • Teslapunk
    Derivative of Steampunk, but focuses on electricity rather than steam.
  • Splatterpunk
    Explicit horror and gore
  • Biopunk
    Biotechnology, genetics (part science fiction, part real life)
  • Nanopunk
    Nanotechnology, sometimes overlaps with Biopunk
  • Cyberpunk
    The granddaddy of them all:  computer technology, the internet, hackers, etc. 

Others not included in the infographic

Okay, uh, TW for graphic descriptions of rape in the Splatterpunk explanation link (specifically as examples of ~look how edgy and without boundaries this subgenre is~), but I think all the other links should be safe.

Also, Arcanepunk is a theme with combinations of magic and science/technology, or with technology so complex it appears to be magic.

So, let me guess— you just started a new book, right? And you’re stumped. You have no idea how much an AK47 goes for nowadays. I get ya, cousin. Tough world we live in. A writer’s gotta know, but them NSA hounds are after ya 24/7. I know, cousin, I know. If there was only a way to find out all of this rather edgy information without getting yourself in trouble…

You’re in luck, cousin. I have just the thing for ya.

It’s called Havocscope. It’s got information and prices for all sorts of edgy information. Ever wondered how much cocaine costs by the gram, or how much a kidney sells for, or (worst of all) how much it costs to hire an assassin?

I got your back, cousin. Just head over to Havocscope.

((PS: In case you’re wondering, Havocscope is a database full of information regarding the criminal underworld. The information you will find there has been taken from newspapers and police reports. It’s perfectly legal, no need to worry about the NSA hounds, cousin ;p))
