    How To Make Manga #1: Story Ideas

    This is the first entry in a series on how to make your own web manga. Every creative project starts with an idea. This idea compels an artist to act. The artist then starts creating. And in the end, you get something creative. A manga is no different. Before you can draw, you have to write, and before you write, you have to get ideas. Particularly, story ideas. But how do you get story ideas? And not just any story idea. How do you get good story ideas? Mind Mapping Start by getting a pen and piece of paper. (Or use your computer like I did.) Write down any word that comes into your mind. It doesn’t matter what it is. Any will do. Ball. (That’s a word that crossed my mind as I’m typing this) Next, write down another word that is related to the first one. Basketball. (Ball was my first word) Add a third word that is related to the second one. Lebron James. (Basketball was my second word) Keep going until you can’t think of any related words anymore. Let’s say I got stumped at my fourth word. (LA Lakers) Ball > Basketball > Lebron James > LA Lakers Go back to the previous word and think of a new related word. (I go back to Lebron James) GOAT. (A new word that relates to Lebron James) Continue until you run out of words. Go back to the previous word if that happens. Repeat until you’re out of new words. Ball > Basketball – Lebron James > LA Lakers > ??? Ball > Basketball > Lebron James > GOAT > beard > ??? Ball > Basketball > Slam Dunk! > ??? Ball > Volleyball > ??? Ball > ??? I can now come up with story ideas thanks to my finished mind map. Here are a few: A manga where the main hero is trying to get in the NBA. A great basketball player reincarnated as a goat. A manga where there is a futuristic sport combining basketball and volleyball. Mind mapping is a technique that helps you generate ideas. It’s typically used in business but I found it to be effective in creative endeavors too. However, the quality of ideas generated will depend on your ability to read between the lines. Do not look at a mind map literally! Let your creativity flow to get the best results. Once you have selected a story idea we can now move on to the next step. Expanding that story idea.

    Creative Corner - Closed and Archived

    I really appreciate how this forum has a feature that automatically searches for possible duplicate topics. I was about to create a new topic on why is the creative corner archived. And it led me to this. I was thinking of sharing some of my creative projects but I don't really know where. This topic has been helpful.

    Which Gender do you usually go for in games ?

    I clicked on this topic thinking, For sure most people will say female. Then I voted and saw the results.... Yup I knew it. hahaha I switch back and forth actually. If I played as a male last time then I choose female. And vice versa.

    Hello! New to AF!

    haha You're definitely not the norm. Although I'm in my 30's (old for the fandom) but I have no plans of slowing down too.

    New Year, New You?

    I think that's a good explanation for why people wait for new year to make a change. Because it's easier to look back and remember when you started. It's easier to say, Oh I've been exercising for 6 years now. I started in 2017. Rather than Oh, I've been exercising for maybe 6 years now. I started around 2017. Maybe mid 2017. But I agree with what most people already said. There's no need to wait for new year to change/improve. You can start tomorrow. Or in the next 5 minutes.

    Hello! New to AF!

    It's interesting. I noticed that the anime fandom tends to peak at around that age. And tapers off as you get older. Anyways glad you're back in the fandom. And welcome to the forums!

    how important is money for you~ ?

    You're still a better person than me. haha I guess just be careful as some people can get really dependent on you. I had co-workers in the past who kept borrowing money from me because I lent them money in the past. They think I'm always available to give money.

    how important is money for you~ ?

    Yeah like what most people already said. We just need enough money. Not really millions or billions. But just enough to keep living decently. As long as you have a place to sleep, food to eat, electricity, clothes to wear and so on that's enough for me. And there was a study done that showed past a certain amount of money, it makes no difference. It doesn't add to your happiness anymore. And good for you @XII360 for helping others. You're a good person.

    an introduction to particle physics

    SPOILERS BELOW! About the manga, I haven't read it. It does continue but some say the story gets too confusing. I do plan to check it out. At what point did you stop watching the anime?

    an introduction to particle physics

    Oh I thought they now made their own anime. haha I recently watched Hunter x Hunter. Yup hands down the best shonen of all time. One Punch Man, can't wait for season 2. It took them a long time though. Kinda lost some of its momentum. I have to watch My Hero Academia season 3. Definitely looking forward to it. I enjoyed the first 2 seasons. Reminds me a lot of Harry Potter though. Attack On Titan, I stopped watching after the 1st season and went with the manga instead. Is season 3 out already? Steins; Gate probably my favorite show. Did you watch the new one? Is it as good or better than the 1st? And I haven't watched the others but will definitely check them out. Thank you!!

    Yes hello and welcome!! I love your avatar. And yeah, China and Korea has been getting into the anime industry lately. I think it's awesome. As fans it gives us more choices. What do you think?

    Is malware crusher safe to use ?

    A quick Google search seems to indicate it is "questionable". It might be malware itself. But I haven't heard or used that software. I personally use Avast Anti Virus and Malware Bytes. Both are free. And I can vouch for them.
