Oh! Hello there!

I'm Writer. Isn't it a lovely day out here in Neopia Central? I think so too. Come on. Why don't you walk with me? I'd love to talk to you about what I do!

You see, I have the fun job of helping others using my...unique abilities. I write quite often, and many times it's...very important work that I do. Sometimes it's even downright dangerous. But let's not dwell on that. Anyhoo, you're here to receive some...assistance I presume? Good. Good. That's what I'm here for. Forgive me for a second. I left my satchel over there on that bench.

Ah! Here we are. These are my Writing Bits, spare details and things from my travels, little bits of advice and things. You're welcome to them. Of course, if you have any questions for me, I live just a few streets down there on Aisha Avenue. You can always stop in and ask me or Sunny a question or two. We'd be happy to help.

A Note from Sunny

This page is here to share writing resources I have collected, including resources related to the creation of writing, the teaching of writing, as well as historical facts and other details useful in writing. This is meant to be a resource. As well, I also have some fellow writers who have agreed to contribute some suggestions or comments on occasion.

Habits of Good Writers

We Read Hard and Deep

Good writers read a lot of different genres, over a lot of different subjects and levels. We make time to read, and not just to read but to ponder the writing and how the writer wrote the book itself. I myself have multiple books on my bookshelf, not just books for adults, but books for youth, and even children. I find that even children's books can give me messages and questions to ponder.
The "greats" are greats for a reason. Read the classics, not only because they're high in literary merit, but because many copies of the books are free on e-readers everywhere. In high school, I spent my spare time reading titles such as Tale of Two Cities, Arabian Nights, The Lost Prince, Macbeth and other titles of that sort because they didn't cost me anything.

Genres and (some of) the Writers that Define Them


Italic Authors are authors I read and personally enjoy.

Western: Louis L'amour, Zane Grey, Dana Fuller Ross, Larry McMurtry, Cormac McCarthy.
Children/YA: Neil Gaiman, J.K Rowling, Eric Carle, Sharon Creech, Lowis Lowry, Beatrix Potter, Judy Blume, Mary Pope Osbourne.
Horror:
Mystery: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Allen Poe
Fiction - Adventure: Robert Louis Stevenson, Jules Verne, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Mark Twain
Fiction - Historical:
Forgive me for the long children's/YA section. I'm a future teacher, so I have a lot of recommendations that I use in my own classes and experiences. ;)

Reference



Writer's got a quad reference because there are some artists who simply cannot draw anthro ixi. So I created a quad version of her. I don't really /use it/ in my stories/roleplay, it's really just here to allow those artists to be able to create fan art if they're really keen/interested in doing it. ;)
