Quick Tips for Improving Your WritingThis guide is for people who are trying to become better writers (those who want to get published). This is not for people who write only to express themselves; while thats a valid reason to write, this is not the guide for them.
This is long, but I call this 'quick tips' because they're a distillation of what I've learned in the last couple of years.

30 day adoptable/design challenge1. fancy/elegant

(pretty typical themes aha)
adoptable theme challenge n_n

i couldn't find any adoptable challenges, so i looked through people's 100 theme challenge things, picked out a few that i think would be suitable and added some of my own ideas.
if others want to do this challenge too;
you don't have to do one every day, and you CAN do more than one every day.
basically, do what you want, and take your time. i do suggest mixing up the genders sometimesm though. maybe if you usually do female adopts, try a few male, and vice versa.

Cotton Mouth Species Info *UPDATE*THIS IS A CLOSED SPECIES MEANING YOU MAY NOT MAKE ONE UNLESS YOU ARE A CO-OWNER!!
