Thanks a lot, even if I drop the illustations (I'm no Kubo Tite) and make it a simple novel in the end this is a great guidline for any story.

I write stories. I pretty much wish for them to become manga, but unfortunately my drawing skills are pretty much... How do I say this... An F in art??:D I get frustrated when no one reads my work, although I know that the reason for that might be because I don't know how to 'spread word' about my works.:D My folks at home aren't of ANY help whatsoever too. Pretty much NO ONE supports me in my passion & hobby.

I gots me plenty of ideas too. Can someone teach me to draw??

I think my biggest barrier to making manga is I get bored easily when I'm not doing an action scene. I've tried several times, but in between action scenes I get bored to tears writing and drawing talking scenes.

I'm... decent at drawing, but with lots of practice, I really want to start. I already have a really great story just waiting to get out of my head and on to paper.

By the way, some advice for those with trouble writing. Write down three simple plots first, then one by one, keep adding tropes and idioms. for Example.

1. A guy trying to save his lover

2. An MMA fighter who wants get to the top

3. A girl wanting an awesome guy

Now let's add some Tropes and Idioms shall shall we?

1. A Samurai trying to save his Geisha Lover from Hell, all while tearing himself up in the process and wondering if he should continue or still move on.

2. A low ranking MMA fighter whos hidden potential is sealed way by drugs, money and pornography who gets himself/herself all cleaned up, but do to the effects of drugs, he/she can only get to the top with his/her will (Side note: Come on ladies, we know you love seeing man sticks on the web as well)

3. A girl wanting an awesome guy, but all around her are some complete douchebags who trick her and want to use her for sex and just wanting to have a girlfriend just for the sake of having a girlfriend. And in her POV, she will ever wonder if she can get atleast a decent guy to like her!


Don't think that this is the only approach! You can make the simplest concepts amazing with your own way of telling a story! And I just made these up on the spot, one of which appeals to a probable Female Demographic!

If you can make things interesting based off simple concepts, you will have an amazing story to tell!
