  1. (As far as I know (And I searched) there is no current Ask Sweetie Belle thread. And we can't have that! So I started one Feel free to lock it if there is already one!) Hello everypony! My name's Sweetie Belle, and if you ever want to ask me any type of question, ask, because it'll be really really fun! Maybe I'll get my cutie mark in question answering?
  2. When you read text off the internet do you hear a voice in your head reading it to you? If so who's?
  3. So yeah what accents do you find cute and/or sexy? I think Southern American is the Sexiest accent and Asian is the cutest ^^ Examples Southern US Accent ^Yes AJ as the example (I'm too lazy to find anything else)
  4. Do you have a voice you can use?! Do you have a microphone of any kind whatsoever?! Do you love, or at least tolerate fanfiction?! Can you imagine combining all three?! Then do I have an offer for you!! ...okay, toning it down some. In short, I'm looking for volunteers to help with the Golden Oaks fanfiction reading project. At this point I'm mostly looking for folks to lend additional voices to the fics I'm reading, but I imagine the whole project should also be able to grow on its own given interested contributors. So, if you are interested, drop a line here. I don't care about the quality of hardware you have to work with, and if you're worried you're not good enough, I care even less. The only question I care about is whether you think you'd enjoy it. Everything else is insignificant. I hope to hear from you, in more ways than one. Quinch
  5. So, I don't know if this will sound weird or what, and I don't know if anypony else picks up on little details like this, but I love the way Rainbow's voice sometimes sort of breaks when she sings a word starting with the letter "H." Let me clarify. Listen to her short solo in "A True, True Friend." Listen to her line, "Applejack needs your help; she's trying hard doin what she can." Specifically, listen to the way she says "help," and "hard." Her voice sort of breaks/cracks a little, sort of like the sound she makes when she laughs. I absolutely love that. It's so endearing. It's not typically a feature you would think of as good when it comes to singing, but it gives her such a unique flair. She really has such a surprisingly beautiful singing voice. She needs more singing time in the show.
  6. So just as the title says! I have a low pitched voice, and I am a girl, sorta like gilda/AJ/Sunset shimmer
  7. Which voice out of the mane 6 do you like best? I think the voice acting in that show definitely makes it what it is. They are all done well but I think Rarity has the best one. Even though I really like Rainbow Dash's voice, I just think that Rarity's is just funnier when she's being dramatic.
  8. Hi there! Ben here and im asking here because I need a female VA for my OC because im making mutable projects like a animation, a game, and other things.for her and I need one. This is her. Her name is Lilly Bell and she is the first ever Trainpony invented by me of course. xP Me and my friend are making meany projects with her and she needs a VA. She has a voice of a young adult with a ascent mix of babs seed and AJ. Think Boston ascent with some country. Here are some lines that you can say. *happy tone* "Oh my Celestia! This coal is DELICIOUS!" "It must be because I'm part loco now is why it tastes so good!" *in sarcastic tone* "Well you know I weigh about a ton now. You should of removed those carpets." *in sad tone* "All *sniff* I wanted....was to be helpful. But I see all you see me as now is a FREAK!" There you go. send links to your guy's recordings if you did one here or to my email Thanks and i hope to see at least a few people wanting to try this. ^^
  9. Who is your favorite member of MLP: FiM's voice cast? Even though Twilight is my favorite character and I very much admire Tara Strong with all of her voice roles, I think my favorite is Tabitha St. Germain. She's just so versatile and her performances as Rarity are some of the most entertaining for me in any cartoon I have ever watched. Also, she voices Princess Luna, Granny Smith, Derpy, Mrs. Cake, Photo Finish, and a bunch of random speaking background ponies. I admire that ability to adapt to all sorts of characters. And of course, those are only the ponies she voices. She's got a lifetime of experience with a very diverse set of characters.
  10. I am hoping to gather together a team of programmers, graphic artists/designers, animators, voice actors and writers to bring together a long awaited project. For years now, this fandom has gone without something important, something that would bring motivation to us creatives, companionship to those of us who are lonely. I'm talking about a virtual pony assistant of course. Just think of all the content in the fandom and the amount of us actually using computers in our day to day lives, as well as the lonely ones out there who just want to connect with the ponies they love or anypony in general be it OC, fanmade or otherwise. Since day one I myself have been looking for something like this, surprisingly there are not many pony apps out there that are that well made or appealing, not blaming the creators at all, they made what they wanted to make not what other people have been wanting or asking for. This needs to be done. In saying it needs to be done, i'm not demanding anyone do it, I'm simply saying it has to be done as in it needs to eventually happen as it would be incredible and something of value, well sought after by many in the fandom. Imagine you had a bad day at work, or are simply stuck on an idea, or just need help with research. Imagine you could just simply say "hello princess, do you think you can brighten my day?" and have Twilight herself reply with a soothing "of course I can, well I can at least try, should I play your favorite song, or we could play a game?" Imagine being able to compliment anypony of your choosing, pet their mane with a click of your mouse, boop them on the snout, or have them lay there in all of their animated beauty, maybe even on a pillow or cushion looking all cute and adorable. If anyone is willing to contribute their time to such a project, if you have the skills, please message me and we'll get to building this team. I am no leader, so I will need all the help I can get planning this venture. I look forward to working with all who wish to contribute. Best wishes, Final Verse.
  11. Singing is by far a huge phenomenon in MLP. However, what is most important is maintaining the character's original voice while singing. The biggest issue is keeping a great shape in your vocal cords to keep airflow not only strong but the voice you are performing must remain in top shape at all times. The #1 rule when it comes to singing in character is to NEVER lose your character voice. That's the worse possible thing that can happen. Now, every character's voice is different. The fact is the Mane 6 are the characters the most song time, along with the CMC, Princesses and other side characters. This means that whenever you sing like a character, you will have to shape your vocal cords in order to not only get the proper airflow, but also make your voice sound like that character. Before we go any further, there are some important guidelines you must follow in order to keep your voice healthy and avoid hurting it due to singing improperly or allowing too much or too little airflow. KNOW YOUR LIMITS: This is perhaps the most important rule when it comes to singing in general. Always know what you can and cannot sing. It is great when you have a partner who can test your range. You can also test your range yourself. Everypony has a range, which is basically the gap of pitches they are able to sing. Don't Push Yourself Too Hard: This is a singer's greatest mistake. A lot of singers, including myself, want to be able to hit those higher notes, especially if you're at a concert with your favorite band, and you wanna be heard belting out the chorus of your favorite song. However, if the song is out of your range, don't push yourself to try to hit those notes, unless you use your head voice. We will talk about the head voice later. Maintain a Healthy Voice: Always drink before and after you sing. As a vocalist, you must keep your voice healthy at all times. Drink water preferably, but nothing with caffeine. Caffeine will dry you out quickly. Drinks high in electrolytes are known to help the voice as well. Now that we've covered the guidelines, we will now go on the part you all have been waiting for: How To Sing In Character! As you may know, there are many different MLP characters, but there are 9 mane characters that have singing roles. This includes the Mane 6 and the CMCs. The Princesses also have singing roles, but we will get to those later. Now, we will break down on how to hone the singing voice of each character. Princess Twilight Sparkle Princess Twilight Sparkle has two voice actors: Tara Strong being the mane one and Rebecca Shoichet. Rebecca Shoichet is her singing voice. Twilight's voice is quite smooth in character, and her comfortable singing range, or tessitura is between Bb3 and about a D5 (Using Midnight In Me as a reference since a D5 is the highest pitch sung in the song). Twilight Sparkle has hit higher notes, like in Find A Way, but notice how the singer retains the vowel sounds and open voice. To sing like Twilight, you have to make sure your voice is smooth. Don't focus too much on trying to get the voice to "sing loud". You will lose it automatically. Instead, take the time to warm it up to it's upper range, especially if you're going to be covering a song like Winter Wrap-Up, which has that one big section where Twilight is hanging in the soprano range. Fluttershy Fluttershy's voice is a very delicate and gentle voice. What you need here is to make your voice sound airy. However, do not overdo this effect, as it will be much more difficult to hit higher notes. Fluttershy can hit pretty high notes, as witnessed in "Music in the Treetops", where she hits an A5. Some say Fluttershy is an alto, but she is really a mezzo-soprano. To sing like Fluttershy, you need a delicacy in your voice. Give it that angelic airy sound, but again, don't overdo the airy effect. You can add vibrato for effect, but it is recommended you reserve vibrato for only the higher notes. Rarity Rarity's voice has a double whammy. Her voice not only has a bit of the airy voice like Fluttershy, but it also has somewhat of a British accent. This means that when Rarity sings, her vowels will be naturally taller. In singing, "taller vowels", does not refer to volume, but rather than the shape of the mouth and jaw. The sound will be much brighter and open sounding, which gives more room for expression. In comparison to singing songs in a normal contemporary fashion, Rarity uses the traditional chorale type of singing, which indeed enforces tall vowels. If you listen to any song or part that Rarity sings, you will hear the vowels sounding more open. To illustrate this, let's examine the first two lines of "Art of the Dress" Thread by thread Stitching it together Now, as you can see, reading these two lines normally would produce a contemporary and bland voice. However, adding the tall vowels adds brightness, which means the words will be pronounced differently, as shown below Threahd baui threahd Stihtching it togethuhr Notice the word "by" is pronounced with a stress on the sound "au". This is why Rarity has one of the most difficult singing voices to master, because you have to focus on formulating the tall vowels properly and deliver a smooth and pleasing tone. Remember, tall vowels does not equal louder singing, it means to enunciate and open your jaw. Think of Rarity's voice like an opera singer's voice, except it is not as projected and slightly held back, with some delicacy on top. Rainbow Dash Rainbow Dash may seem like an easy one to master, but don't forget about her raspy and somewhat scratchy voice. Her singing range is of an alto. The biggest mistake a singer can make when trying to imitate Rainbow Dash is that they make their voice so raspy and scratchy that either their throat starts to itch a lot, or they suffer multiple voice cracks. Rainbow Dash's voice does crack during regular speech, but is 100% clear. To sing like Rainbow, you've got to grasp the balance of raspiness and clarity of voice. Pronunciation should be that of everyday speech. Make sure you have enough airflow and breath control to sustain longer notes. Vibrato should only be reserved for long notes that last 3 or more beats. Applejack Applejack has that thick country accent that affects all vowel sounds. This means that all articulators will be used. The articulators include, the tip of the tongue, roof of the mouth, lips and teeth. The country accent adds twang to the sound of each word. Some vowel sounds are more affected my others. The most noticeable changed vowel sound is the short e sound "eh". It's sound changes to "eeye" or "ee-yeh". Therefore, the word "generation", would sound like "geeyeneration". If you listen to Applejack's speech closely, you can even hear this outside of singing. Therefore, to sing like Applejack, you must adopt to a thick country accent. However, don't try to force it out. It will end up becoming sloppy. Instead, let it come natural and use your articulators to help you with the pronunciation. Applejack's range is quite comfortable, from middle c to the b right below treble c. Pinkie Pie Pinkie Pie has that tricky voice that hangs in the mid-upper alto range. It is quite loud and squeaky. Still, this doesn't mean you completely forget about all you learned in this thread. Pinkie's voice requires control and balancing. Pinkie's voice also has what is called a glottal attack. This means that when Pinkie says a vowel sound, it is sharp and instant. The glottis opens up on a whim and air flows through. This is not necessarily a good thing because it can wear out the vocal cords faster because they open up quickly. Her range starts at the Bb right below middle C. Pinkie's singing is actually slightly lower than her speaking voice. To sing like Pinkie Pie, you'll need to adapt to a sort of squeaky voice. The one cautionary point you need to take in is that you must not emphasize the squeak or else you'll wear your voice out and may even cause damage. Applebloom Applebloom is a foal, but she's growing up, so her voice has gotten a little deeper, but not much. Her voice is in the alto range but more of the upper alto range. Some could say she's a mezzo-soprano but I'd say she's alto 1. Again, Applebloom like Applejack has that country accent. Everything from Applejack's voice should apply to Applebloom, but Applebloom must sound more childlike. Sweetie Belle Sweetie Belle has one of those "mixed" voices. This means that the character of her voice sort of "borrows" from other characters I have explained. Younger Sweetie Belle has a more squeaky voice. However, now that both Sweetie Belle and her voice actor are growing up, Sweetie's voice has lost some of it's squeakiness, which makes things a little easier. Sweetie Belle has two distinguished types of singing voices, her soft singing voice and her power singing voice. To sing Sweetie's soft voice, adapt a somewhat childlike tone, but not as childlike as Applebloom, unless you're doing younger Sweetie Belle's voice. For the power voice, the one thing you have to make sure is you have total control, Sweetie Belle doesn't sing that high unless you're doing one of those crazy songs like 99 Buckets of Oats on the Wall. Even then, when Sweetie Belle is singing this high (C5 to G5, the range for 99 Buckets of Oats on The Wall), you still have to have some degree of control, especially if you're singing that high and that loud. Sweetie Belle's voice range sits right in the mezzo-soprano range. Scootaloo Scootaloo's voice is quite tomboyish. Because of this, it is hard for Scootaloo herself to hit those higher notes, which is why her range ends at the B right below C5 or treble C. Some of the raspiness from Scootaloo's tomboyish voice carries over to her singing voice. To sing like Scootaloo, you gotta make your voice slightly scratchy, but not too much. Remember, a scratchy voice can contribute to an itchy throat, which can wear out your vocal cords. Princess Luna Princess Luna's voice is quite smooth, but it can become quite powerful. Princess Luna is an absolute alto. Some can argue that she can be a filly tenor, because of the characteristics of her voice. I say, that if she was placed in a choir, she would most like be an alto 2. Though we've only heard Luna sing twice in the show, we can now distinguish two different singing voices of Princess Luna. The first voice is found in "You'll Play Your Part" where her voice is warm and both. The second of the voices is found in "Luna's Future", where her voice takes on a darker and more airy character. Remember, an airy voice cannot be too airy. Plus, Luna's darker voice is not as airy as Fluttershy's voice. To sing like warm Luna, you'll need to focus on pronouncing your words clear and maintain a delicate and sweet tone. To sing like dark Luna, take on an airy character and somewhat operatic voice. However, the biggest thing is that Luna's vowel sounds are not as tall as other voices. Princess Celestia Princess Celestia has that beautiful and warm motherly voice, which is why she is one of the easiest characters to sing as. She is best placed in the contralto range, due to her voice being able to reach some of the mid baritone range. In Celestia's Ballad, Celestia's highest note is a B right below C5 (treble C). This is the highest note she has sang so far. In "You'll Play Your Part", due to polyphony (many voices singing different melodies), she takes the lower range of the song. To sing like Celestia, the most important thing you must do is to have that warm and motherly voice. Be delicate with it. Celestia's voice wasn't meant to be powerful, unless there's a situation going on. Also, Celestia's voice wasn't designed to lurk in the soprano and upper alto range, so try to stay between E3 and A4. You may go up to C5 but cap it at there, or else you'll lose the warm and motherly voice as you try to take it up in range. Princess Cadence Princess Cadence's voice is more of a sisterly voice. It is caring and is classified as a soprano, specifically 1st soprano if she were placed in a choir. The highest note we have heard Cadence sing was in This Day Aria, where Cadence hit an F#5. When Cadence sings, she mixes her contemporary sisterly voice, with an operatic voice that consists of tall vowels. Like Rarity's voice, the tall vowels should be open and clear. Every "ah" should sound like "auh", "e" like "eh" and so forth. Also, when Cadence goes beyond C5, she starts to use her head voice, also known as falsetto, especially when she hits the F#5 in This Day Aria. Singing like Cadence is quite the challenge, for you have to not only be able to be clear in your tessitura but also make sure you have a strong falsetto, especially if you're writing a song that exercises the higher soprano range. Now I know what you stallions are thinking: "Hay what about us males? Don't we get any characters?" You certainly do...three...for now. Spike may be a boy, but his voice actor is a female. Big Mac Eeyup, you stallions saw him coming. Big Macintosh would considered a bass, for the highest note we have heard him sing was in "Find The Music In You", an F3. Big Mac has a little bit of a country accent but not as much as his sister Applejack. To sing like Big Mac, you really just have to have that natural deep voice for him. Your voice must be classified either as a bass or baritone, but bass is highly recommended. Like Applejack, you gotta have that country accent, but remember, it is not as heavy as hers. Feather Bangs A very new character, introduced in Season 7, Feather bangs has that "cool guy" type of voice. He is fit in the upper tenor range. In comparison to many of the other singing voices, Feather Bang's voice is of the contemporary era. You can hear some of that heavy accented "Michael Jackson" flare. Also, Feather Bangs exhibits what's known as a "glottal attack". This means that the glottis, the slit-like opening between the vocal cords and the airway is opened forcefully, causing an instant sound. This can become unhealthy and cause the vocal cords stress due to how quickly they open. The biggest mistake one can do with singing like Feather Bangs is that they glottal attack to the point where the upper notes of the voice become thin and soon, they will be lost. Rumble Rumble, who spoke for the very first time in Season 7, has a somewhat teenage jazzy voice, which he may strain at certain times, like in the song "Blank Flanks Forever", which is the only song we've heard him perform thus far in the series. Rumble's highest note sung is a G#4, which is just about his limit. To sing like Rumbler, make sure you have plenty of water on you, as you gotta combine a strong tenor voice with a childlike edge, which means you may have to strain, but try not to. And lastly...but certainly not least... Spike Spike is voiced by a female, which is understandable. Spike's voice has that childlike edge, which makes it somewhat difficult to sing. Spike's voice is considered mezzo-soprano in a full choir setting, but mid-upper voice in child's singing settings. Spike can hit an A4 very comfortably, but somewhat struggles to hit a C5 even though his voice is capable of doing it. Spike's tessitura is most likely from middle C to A4. To sing like Spike, you'll need a childlike voice along with a little bit of edge. Just try not to strain and go above Spike's normal tessitura. Well folks, we've reached the end of our journey on exploring the singing voices of our favorite pony characters. There may have been characters I've left off, but I will certainly update this guide in the future to include movie characters and other ponies that gain singing roles. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to PM me at anytime and I'll get back to you when I can.
  12. Ever since Rainbow Rocks, I've been hoping for the Dazzlings to make another appearance. I mean, we saw some of the Crystal Prep students again in "Dance Magic" so its not like Hasbro's above recurring EQ character cameos. I thought they were pretty awesome villains and I'd love to see them again (maybe even reformed, that's kind of always been a thing with FiM). Plus I have a huge crush on Adagio (yes, I'm one of those weird people with a crush on fictional characters, but I don't think that's unusual for these parts). Heh.
  13. I recently made a collection of 'creature' sounds, and I would like you magnificent pone pones to guess what I used as a source sound effect to make the sound file. It's a dumb idea, but honestly, I'm just curious to see if people can guess where I get the bases for some of my crazy files from. Anyways, audio file is right HERE! Soundcloud link.
  14. I really like Cadence's and Bonbon's to be honest. What're yours? I'm very curious of everyone's opinions just because.
  15. Seeing around the internet, I know alot of the brony fandom can do alot of voices for the characters of MLP, from the Mane Six, to Big Mac, to the CMCs, but I cannot find someone who can do Spike's voice to the point where it's hard to compare between that voice, and Cathy's! XD I swear, Cathy is the only one who can do his voice! Unless you know of someone that might knows how!
  16. I love all of the voices in My Little Pony, but my favorites in particular is Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash! I like Pinkie Pie's because I have a very high pitched voice, and it's very squeal-y. As in, people have told me I sound like Pinkie Pie. I also like Rainbow Dash's because it's adorable! I love the squeak in her voice sometimes! So who's your favorite voice in My Little Pony, and why?
  17. Hello! I am GeekBrony, the owner of the Radio Station on Bronydom Network, which is known as Bronydom Radio. Currently, we have a limited amount of Station IDs that play on the radio, and we're looking for voice actors/actresses to get Station IDs from. We're looking for people who: Have a professional-grade microphone. (Doesn't have to be really professional, just has to sound good for radio) Have an enthusiastic voice. What's a Station ID? A Station ID is a few second (2-10 second) identification played on radios and television networks, which says the name of the Radio/TV Station. For an example of one from our radio station, click here. What are the guidelines of a Station ID? Well, the only thing you generally have to say is the radio's name, but we'd like to hear, "you are listening to [sTATION NAME]," which gets the job done quite well. That said, you can add more onto the Station ID, including (but not limited to): Saying your fandom name and what you do. Imitating an MLP character of your choice. There's a lot of possibilities, but I can't think of any right now. Be creative with it, don't just say it into a mic and then send it over! What format should I send this in? We would prefer if you could send it in lossless format (WAV or FLAC), but if you can't use those, we recommend exporting in 320kbps MP3. So.. what do I do after I record this file? I recommend that you upload it somewhere (like Dropbox or Google Drive) and send me the link via PM. If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this thread. I'll keep an eye on this thread so I can answer in the fastest way possible. Happy Recording!
  18. Hello . In this topic I will put my small covers (Non pony). it's a way for me to work my accent in English. Not easy at all, but it's a good way to increase my level 0/. The most recent :'ve put it on this website because youtube block this song) The second : More covers will come with the time . I'll do my best. 0/
  19. Anypony can help me find a popular/memorable pony that I can voice? I can talk as high as Coco Pomell and as low as Big Mac, I slur my words and talk really fast, but I can control that. If I want to do high voices I kinda have to create a airy voice, kinda like Flutters. I wanna sneak up behind my friend and be like hello!!! I want them to be like OMG AM I DREAMING!!! But the problem is that she wont recognize Big Mac's voice since he only voiced in 2 episodes, so I don't want to voice him.
  20. I just wanted to know everypony's opinion of who, out of the Mane 6, is your favorite singer during the songs and music scenes in the show. You can aslo discuss about specific songs by specific ponies you enjoy. For me, my favorite singers are both Applejack and Rarity. But if I had to pick only one, it would be Rarity, because her songs reminds me of the old Disney cartoons' songs~ 'Becoming Popular' is a perfect example I have. +EDIT+ Sorry for not adding the other wonderful singers we have along the show, like Flim & Flam, the Cutie Mark Crusaders and Cadance. Their roles aren't just small compared to the Mane 6, but I'm also sure I'll be always forgetting some character as my memory is rather bad... You can still absent your vote for the poll and mention another singer that you enjoy.
  21. so I had to correct one of the bronys in one of the videos about this , and just figured I'd mention it here too. The spike in EQG3 is NOT the spike from ponyville. I know it was confusing as he chased that creature through the wormholes and then suddenly came out and he could talk. What many didn't notice is as the magic was being drained from one of the mane 6 (I think it was fluttershy) spike got caught in the "drain' stream, and the elements of harmony magic granted him the ability to talk - probably aligning him with the magic of equestria that allows spike to talk. Also I believe the creature he was chasing was a jackalope. so yeah, it's still human world spike - not ponyville spike replacing him and leaving human world spike in equestria, although that could have been interesting hehe..
  22. hello as the title is saying i search for a few voice actors for my project i already have most of the voices only ones missing are Twilight and Rainbow Dash if you are interested in voice acting for one of these two please leave a comment below send me a message here or on youtube (the name is the same) the project contains blood,gore,dark humor and a bit mean lenguage ( just for the note :3) anyway im looking forward to read from you all^^
  23. I know the fan favourite poll has passed now, but I only just saw the promos. However, Applejack's really shocked me! I don't know whether I'm just imagining it but her voice sounds a little deeper, and less cute Decide for yourself: As opposed to her "old" voice: I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if it is. Ashleigh's voice has just changed and, I accept that - maybe a few years of raspy Dash has deepened her vocal chords, I don't know. What do you think?
  24. Hello everypony , I am looking for some nice voice actors for my upcoming My Little Pony flash animation/minimovie. The video length is projected to be about 10 mins long. My summer is currently busy as I have summer school, but once I am out of summer school in August, I could start animating. For now, I wanted to get a head start by hiring potential voice actors. I already have some idea of how the animation works. The script is unwritten yet - but I could kinda incorporate many roles due to the flexibility of an unwritten script. Here are the voice parts I need and have more priority: - Celestia - Twilight - Spike - Any of the Mane 6 (but twilight has higher priority) - Crowd (Voicing of people in a crowd - example - 15 secs in the vid people are chanting Modi Modi) - Screaming/Shouting (Something along the lines.. maybe "WHAT IS HAPPENING????"), voice of a background charachter Here are the parts I may/may not need: - Luna - Bon Bon - Lyra - CMCs (any of them) Keep in mind that this list is not permanent and if you voice any other roles, you can post it here too, I will decide. (I will not take OCs voicing as they are hard to animate) Thank you for your interests in participating in my animation, you will be credited in both the movie credits & description of the video. Please provide a link to your auditions as I cannot assess on your potentials without it. When signing up for the role, PLEASE be noted that this project could take up some time (I am the only animator on board), so it is some kind of "Long-Term" Commitment. Thank you so much! I am looking forward to collab with y'all! Possible voice actors that has reached out to me so far: - LittleshyFiM - His own OC (Minor Role) - AttackRacer - A pony of some kind (I know what his voice sounds like, but the character part could be anyone, probs twilight) - AmaranthineWoof - One of the ponies in the crowd - starscreamer13 - A pony of some kind (I know what his voice sounds like, but the character part could be anyone) - toothydeerrrrrr - A pony of some kind (I know what his voice sounds like, but the character part could be anyone) - skystarartist - A pony of some kind (I know what his voice sounds like, but the character part could be anyone) - zalabany - spike possibly
  25. If you find this useful, check out my Fimfiction Profile. A bold title, yes, but not an untrue one. You see, I’ve been working on a number of writing projects and one of them is an actual book to be published. Because of this I’ve been doing a number of things that are new to me and I came to a realization; I can research how to write all I want, and I can practice trying to be the best I can, but you learn stuff differently when, on purpose, you do something wrong. Let’s start with the story of how I came to this realization. One of the things authors need to do for their book, that was new to me, is to prepare a pitch for the story. A pitch is used to sell the book to a publisher or agent and is a lot like the paragraph on a back of the book designed to sell it but it is slightly different. Usually an author needs to prepare a short pitch, a medium length pitch, and a long pitch. The short pitch is the most important because that’s what will get you in the door and it can sell the book completely if done perfectly. I needed this so that if I run across someone who wants to hear about my book I can explain it in an interesting, concise, fashion like a knowledgeable professional. Now, I’ve never been good at selling myself or things I’m involved with. I’m even terrible at convincing people to try a movie when in a group and have had people recite, word for word, what I have said to successfully convince people of things. Thus, pitching my story really worried me because even on the rare occasion where I’ve done “everything right” it still hasn’t always worked for me. So, a few weeks ago, I started really learning about pitching a story. I’d listened to several podcasts and read a dozen or so articles on pitching. Thus, when it came to write it, I was feeling confident that I knew what needed to be done. However I could not get it right. The short pitch was too long, it had way too much info, and/or the pitches generally had everything wrong with it that you could have at one point or another. I just couldn’t condense all that I had learned into a single concise pitch that worked. I decided to do the opposite. I wrote out a really long, overly complex, and confusing pitch just to get it out there. I had this idea because I did something similar when trying to find my voice for the novel. I was originally trying to go for a medium length pitch but decided to screw it and see if doing it wrong would get it out of my system, possibly even produce a rough gem that I could improve upon. The crazy thing was, when I was done I was able to go back and actually do a much improved pitch. It was a few words long, maybe a tad to much info, but it was close to being focused and concise and, most importantly, interesting. In fact I just went back and tried again and was able to, I think, nail it. I was able to do this only because I had purposely done it wrong the first time. By doing so I was able to get all the information I wanted out there, analyze it, make some of the cuts and refocus some of the wording and really grasp what not to do. The real key, however, was that I saw the bad. It reinforced to me what not to do so that when I sat down I instinctively shied away from many of the issues I had had. Note how I even changed the focus of the pitch from the characters to the world. I did this realizing that everything in the story really revolves around a deep interesting world. While I love my characters and the plot, it’s the world that really ties everything together and makes it interesting. Continuing on I went on to do a pitch that I liked a lot better. It leaves the person who reads it wanting more and asking questions, it speaks to the intertwining effect the setting has on the characters and the problem, and it lists the selling points in my book (character and world) by framing them in the context of this particular story and the challenge faced. After realizing how doing it wrong helped me do it correctly, I thought back on some other times I’ve done this. When having trouble explaining a section of a story I sat down and wrote a thousand words in a uninteresting extra telly 3rd person fashion. But afterwards I was able to rewrite it in an interesting first person fashion that was only about 450 words. In fact, my very first fic (never published) started with 3 pages of boring tell. But when I sat down to re-write the beginning it flowed easily, ended up being smooth, and had a lot of character and charm, all condensed into a page and a half that was almost all dialogue so it effectively cut my word count by two thirds while still feeling like a lot. Now, this is different than the tool of simply sitting down to write and warm up/wait for something good to start flowing. I purposely did something that I know was bad and analyzed it to find the good/identify what I really wanted to say and I have a theory for why this works. Doing and seeing things wrong also hit home the lessons I had been learning. It was one thing to see bad examples, but it was another to make them. But, by doing it on purpose it didn’t get me down, I wasn’t frustrated, and it didn’t discourage me in the least. If anything it encouraged me because I was already way above the bad pitch even though I wasn’t satisfied. Now, there is a reason I think learning this way helped. You see, words are all conceptual, there is nothing physical about them, so practicing something with words is a bit different from practicing something physical like trying a special knot. If the knot is wrong you can simply follow the rope back to see that a lope is simply missing because you forgot a step. With words it’s different because you aren’t writing a single word. You are writing a word that coalesces from one general concept, like a chair, and relating that word with many others to form a weave of interconnecting concepts to make something more substantial, a creaky chair that a woman is pulling out to sit on and rest her weary bones. Beyond that sentences are formed into paragraphs, and paragraphs are only a section of an even larger whole. Now, in relation to a whole 30,000 word long short-story missing a simple comma isn’t all that big of a deal. Missing every comma, however, would be noticeable. This is because a simple mistake will often get edited automatically in our head before the concept as a whole is messed up. Don’t believe me? I would remind you that when we speak we have a lot of hmms, huhs, and ums. We don’t like to see it written that way because it’s wrong, but it’s also undesirable in speech. In speech we just overlook a single um or huh in regards to carrying on listening to many other words and nonverbal cues. But if you say um a lot it stands out and bothers us. Writing is much the same way only for it’s own special set of circumstances. In both cases, speaking or writing, the more there is the harder it is to pull out a single mistake. So when you sit down to identify the problems with a character, it might be one little thing, or a collection of smaller things, and the problem might not even consistently be there. Thus when we try to find a problem that’s there we can often overlook it even as we know something is wrong. We are looking at the whole concept, sometimes the plot for an entire story, and one little part is off but we can’t see it. But if everything is wrong, if we are seeing issues all over the place, we can’t just fit it in and auto fix it nice and neatly. Thus, it helps identify the issue by changing the filter in our minds. The good can also really stand out which can help us change the focus. By comparison, if we go to the original knot comparison it’s easy to find the problem if you simply follow the rope to see that you zigged when you should have zagged. I have found this tool of doing things wrong on purpose incredibly helpful without even realizing I was doing it. As a result I figured it was something others might like to try so I have come up with a list of situations/reasons writing something wrong can help. I say situations because when I think about it each things that I tried to fix took a slightly different approach. 1) Voice: Sometimes the story you are trying to tell isn’t coming out right and just sounds wrong. Rather than constantly fighting it specifically try to write in a boring fashion. Then, instead of trying to figure out what’s wrong try to find what’s working. There is a good chance that if you can find something about your purposely boring words then you should focus on that because it’s coming naturally. A lot of people don’t realize what’s actually good about their work until people tell them. This is a way to do that yourself without relying on the input of others. The downside is that you might still have to try a few different things. Maybe once in 1st person and once in 3rd, or perhaps you should switch between past and present tense on tries. These are normal things to try if your voice doesn’t sound right so this practice can feel repetitive. But if trying those things didn’t work the first time you might find it helpful to try again and to do it wrong on purpose. 2) Something is wrong with a character: Your character not interesting, find their dialogue dull. Great, do in on purpose. Write a scene unrelated to your story but with the character. Now, there are two ways to do this that I feel work the best. The first is to add in some other character that you are familiar with from a different IP and have them talk. The second is to have the character you need help with make an impassioned speech about something to a version of himself that is completely boring and frustrating. The other option is to write out a bio specifically highlighting what is bad. You should be able to identify the interesting bits in any of those example which you add in on accident. The second suggestion there is a bit more specific but the contrast could help a lot of people, it’s another tool but one that could work well when combined. The third I haven’t tried but I would think it would help much like the next situation I’ll list. 3) Problems with your plot: Sometimes I’ve had problems with my plot. I wish I had thought of this a long time ago but simply listing the plot in a giant paragraph and go back and try to edit it can really help. This is the wrong way to plot a story but it can highlight a lot of issues. Maybe you’re characters have to much drama, maybe there are a few too many side plots, maybe something needs to be moved around, maybe you have too little going on, perhaps you need to add a try/fail cycle, or maybe some of your plots just aren’t that interesting. Putting you plot down in the order it happens can really help you see how chaotic a story is, and while many good stories are actually pretty crazy when you put it down like that it can help some issues jump out at you and help you identify the plots that you are most motivated to write. 4) Action/Fight scenes: Action and fight scenes can be really hard to do well for a lot of people. If this is the case for you write out the scene purposefully being bad. It’s all action, no thoughts or pauses, just straight action. My gosh it will get boring fast, hopefully boring enough that you will learn a thing or two about what really needs to go into a fight scene and what needs to stay out. Then, compare it to what you had been writing, any similarities? If so take them out or change them until it looks totally different. Make some actions quick, others take a while, add in a pause, maybe even some slight tangents. Add emotions like frustration or disgust. The trick is to always change it in a different fashion. While you generally want somethings to be the same going from all identical to all unique will help you identify where you want to be and get some good creativity flowing for how to write something properly. 5) Summaries: Whether you are writing a synopsis for a fanfic, quickly describing a story to someone, or writing a short pitch for an actual book, authors generally have to summarize their story a few times and doing so can be a challenge. If you are struggling do it poorly, line it out without being a draw on purpose. But then go back and identify any little thing that is interesting and use that as a starting off point. Well, that’s it for my list and this topic. I am sure there are other ways to use this tool but it is still new to me. I am sure there are more ways to use it, so if you're stuck try with something not listed above try to create a failed version and learn from it in some way. It might require a bit of extra work to really get the most out of it but in the end if it works, and you learn something about your strengths and weaknesses, then it’s a winner in my book.
