Hello, I'm Dreamsoap. I came here because ironically, I keep having to direct artist peers to writing websites who want advice on writing comic stories but for whatever reason, they seek out artists instead of writers for that information. I just did so again today and found this place through google and figured, why not join myself? I live with someone who writes and they have helped me improve dramatically. But it can't exactly hurt to just snoop around, read critiques and soak up the info myself. My goal is actually to create comics. And yes, "manga" style ones, as generally awful as the genre is these days. I completely understand and agree with all criticisms flung at it. However I take my craft seriously, I'm not just drawing blatant fanservice and pretty pictures to bring in an audience. I intend to create and tell actually interesting stories. Some people might wonder "Why do you come to a writing place for comics, those are different." (And I hope no one thinks that) but it's really not different at all. All the same rules and structures apply, it's a story telling medium after all. I could also really learn grammar, too. My boyfriend tells me I type like an English as a Second Language student sometimes.
