I NEED YOUR OPINION: ‘The Mad Artist’ Project

by evilnymphstuff

I hate myself for saying this, but when I feel like chilling in the morning, doing nothing, I open my Facebook and scroll down my news feed. The nice thing about my news feed is that, since a news feed depends on the previous posts you liked and such, I keep seeing either inspiring/writing quotes or beautiful artworks. I’m especially a fan of Word Porn and berlin-artparasites.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, despite my recent irregularity, you know that I’m also as much of a writer as a reader, and also that I’m as much of a visual artist (especially seen on my instagram) as a viewer and appreciator of art.

So, I was doing my usual online routine when an idea occurred to me. And ‘The Mad Artist’ Project was born.

What is that ‘crazy’ project?

Nothing has been done yet, because I would like some opinions from a little of everywhere before I do begin it; but in theory, ‘The Mad Artist’ is going to be a start-up Facebook platform for starting or established artists (digital, traditional, photographers, you name it) to get to promote their best art on a weekly/monthly basis. If I do get to go along with the project, I will start it as a Facebook page first, then expand to a website and Instagram and more maybe.

Why this project?

You see, I am sometimes an artist too, but often, my student life gets in the way and I just stop. Moreover, every time I feel like making my brand, I tend to falter and shift to another style, thus I’m way too inconsistent in art to have a signature style and build my own ’empire’. However, I’m consistently looking out for artsy things, especially during my Facebook time, since I do have creative friends and I do like a lot of such pages, and I really appreciate art, and sometimes I just wish I could help those consistent and dedicated artists in a way.

Besides, I think that being an independent artist (my targeted audience for the project for the time being) requires not only to make art but also to promote it… and the project is going to take care of that second job, at least, I hope it’s going to give more exposure and encourage mingles among the different artists I know.

It will basically be a platform for uniting my favourite arts and at the same time for more exposure for busy creative artists.

If you are confused, here’s a prototype of how a post on the page would look like: a photo/the art and a caption by me (because I do love to write and I did enjoy doing the Picture it & Write challenges long before on this blog, which has the same concept):

“”She might as well have been a porcelain doll. She was played with, but she could not play with.”

Life, I’m Scared.

by evilnymphstuff

My first ‘serious’ vlog:

I hope it doesn’t make you cry, although if you did cry it means I did a great job :)

Anyway, this is basically some reflections on my life situation, where I’ve recently realised that I wanted to pursue art as a career while writing will remain my favourite hobby. And it’s also about my struggle to be accepted as an art student, since many do not agree with my decision, many don’t believe in me, many think that I’ll just end up in the streets instead of having a stable job.

But I don’t believe that. I believe in me. I know I can do this.

I know it’s so sudden and since I didn’t do Art & Design at school I have to do it privately and sit for its A-level next year, thus I’ll still be studying next year instead of going to university.

It’s a risk, I know, but I’m ready to take it. It’s all about follow my dreams and listening to my heart because only my heart knows what makes me happy.

And art does.

That’s the advice I want to give you: it’s okay to be scared, but you should go forward along your heart’s desires anyway.

An Evil Nymph.

12 Tips for Proofreading and Editing Your Own Work! [Guest Post]

by evilnymphstuff

Our brains have the tendency to mess with us. How? Well, when we are proofreading any written work that we have done, we are likely to read the words in the way that we believe they should be written. This means that we are prone to misjudging our written work by missing typos, spelling mistakes and grammatical errors – including punctuation, poor choice of words and wrong sentence structures. This in turn impacts the context of the work as well as the readability.

proofreading

As proofreading and editing is extremely time consuming, it is unlikely that friends and family will want to spend any of their spare time doing it. Also, hiring someone to proofread and edit can be quite expensive. Therefore, it is great to learn how to help ourselves. Continue reading to discover 12 great tips on how you can proofread and edit your own work, to a high standard.

Exercise: Improving Your Writing Skills [Guest Post]

by evilnymphstuff

Writing is a difficult and necessary task of life, no matter what your job is, you will have to do some writing at some point. Even before you get to the technical details, writing is hard enough.

writing

Like most things, writing seems a lot less difficult if you have an idea of how to do it. This is easily done, with a workshop or a writing course. Like riding a bike, these are skills that you only need to learn once, and then get used to implementing. Most professional copywriting companies like Gaps Writing offer offers courses on how to write well, and what constitutes good writing. If you are a business owner or manager, it is particularly important.

The Art Of Planning A Blog

by evilnymphstuff

Let me tell you that I have a blogging schedule, but that I don’t have one. Yes, I love paradoxes lately.

blogging artWhat I mean is that when I first started this blog, I had absolutely no clue where I was going with it. I posted at random, writing without being specialised in any niche, many posts a day or how often I wanted to publish something in the blogosphere during the week.

Then I started to have an audience. A small one at first of course, but for me, one faithful reader was enough for me to become a little more organised on my blog, since I’d despise myself for confusing or overwhelming any followers of mine.

In The Mind Of An Introvert

Today, we live in a world of extroverts. We, introverts, feel marginalised.

Getting Sponsors: uh, what? Spongebob??

by evilnymphstuff

All right I know that in my previous post I promised you a beautifully well-written guest post, but something happened today that I have to share with you! I can’t stand to keep it all to myself. And don’t worry, the guest post will come just after that.

First of all, what is a sponsor? Well when a company/business sponsors something it means that it is supporting the ‘something’ financially and in return the ‘something’ gives credit to the business/company by offering publicity.

This year, I’m part of the school’s editing team for the school magazine :D and we need sponsors to support the magazine. Money just doesn’t come out of thin air, you know.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

by evilnymphstuff

Unusual – I kind of like this word. I’ve always been considering myself as unusual, and everyone should too because we are all unique. And what is unique, is out of the ordinary, thus… bizarre! :)

When I think of unusual, some many things can come to my mind.

Unusual can be something that you’ve never seen/experienced before…

A breaking new innovation: zoos of children!

Why Avoid The Unavoidable?

by evilnymphstuff

Why avoid the unavoidable? Life itself is so simple, but we make it complicated.

We limit ourselves… and sometimes it just makes everything worse.

“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.” 
― Neil GaimanThe Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

Yes, for teenagers, school is a perfect example of what I’m going to write about today. Of course, I won’t say that this type of education isn’t important; it does have advantages like, it is now critical to have passed high school and at least followed tertiary courses to have a stable and respectable job.
