7 Tips for Being a Responsible / Ethical Writer
7 Tips for Being a Responsible / Ethical Writer
Anybody Can Write a Novel
Chapter 7 “From Story to Art” – Section 2 “Ethical Writing”
With Links to Supplementary Material
Of all the elements of storytelling, the one that sets it apart from other forms of art is the relationship between the artist and the author. Not to say that a relationship does not or cannot exist in other forms of art, only that storytelling creates a necessary long and intimate connection between the author and reader—requiring trust between the two so that the story can be told. Today I'm going to discuss the process of earning that trust and not abusing it—a first step in learning to be an ethical and responsible writer.
Tip 1: Understand the need for ethics and relationship in storytelling.

I've always loved video games, animation and story-telling, so I've developed a strong fondness of art. My inspiration for coming to deviantART was the GMod art, which I've since retired from. Today I'm studying 3D animation.

I'm putting my episode reviews on hold for a bit. I have a special video to work on...
FINALLY finished writing Episode 10!
After some thought, I'm changing my name here to "anim8ball." I'd rather have one name than 50 like before. :P
All animations for Season 2 of Anim8Ball have been selected!
Design of my short film's main character has begun! ^^
Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! :party: It was a wonderful day and weekend!

If you don't mind me asking, will you be doing a review of Little Witch Academia series? I love to see you review it since you got me into the anime from your review :D

Hey, just out of curiosity, for your cartoon reviewers thing any chance you'll talk a bit about RebelTaxi. All I'll say is that he's one of the animation reviewers that doesn't take himself as serious as the others and does his own thing.

I went into RebelTaxi's reviews hoping to enjoy myself, having often heard he's one of the better cartoon reviewers on YouTube. Unfortunately, I ended up disappointed.

From what I've seen, his review videos have almost no structure; he constantly jumps back and forth between random points. One second he's giving a character overview, the next he's citing a favorite joke, and then the next he's on some tangent that barely relates back to the original subject.

Taxi has a clear emphasis on humor in his videos. Too much emphasis. So much time would be spent on jokes and random anecdotes that there would be almost no real talk about the animation. Every so often there'd be a start to a potential subject (i.e. the usage of sound effects in Ed, Edd n Eddy), only for it to be stepped on by another topic. 

There's nothing wrong with making ramble-style videos or incorporating humor. My main problem is that these videos are framed and labeled as reviews when they're not reviews. Reviews call for cohesiveness and involve analysis of the work, not just jokes and summarizing. I feel like there's a major misconception in the community that the latter is what passes for credible cartoon reviewing, so long as you occasionally say something that sounds analytical.

Why are you so afraid to confront Mr. Enter? These preschool level jabs at him only make you look spineless. Grow up.

Hey Anim8ball, in those journal entries you did a few years ago, what program did you use to make that moonlight background?
