    TEEN: The Island of Dr. Fuji [Part 5 of 5]

    Hi all, it's been some years since I've been active around these parts, and being back has been making me want to write fan fiction again. I can't help but feel though that I want to pick up some of the projects I let drop before. The thing is that I've still been writing a lot in that time...

    My Return to the Fray

    Hi all, it's been quite some time since I've been here, but with Generation VII on the horizon I thought I might have a pop back into the world's best Pokemon forum. I doubt I'll be as active here as I was once upon a time... mostly I think I'll just have a look at the odd Video Games thread...

    Was that an April Fools joke?

    So, yesterday was April Fools. As I'm sure you've figured out by now, we, at Bulbagarden, like to have fun on April Fools! Just to clarify that a few things were in fact jokes. 1) The rules are NOT changing. The rules are, for time being at least, the same ones as before April Fools. You will...

    Constructive criticism v. flaming

    In this section, there can be a fine line between pointing out mistakes or errors and just being rude. There is never any call to flat out insult someone's work. It takes a lot of guts to post your writing online and people should not be discouraged from doing so by insults. Always make sure...

    ACADEMY: Lesson 5 - Getting Started

    Getting Started This might seem like a weird place to have this lesson. You would think it would go first. Well it’s not. Get over it. Essentially the logic behind this was that since most of the writers here are part way through stories, it would be better to start off with something that...

    Welcome the new Writer's Workshop Section Head!

    I've been promoted to the dizzy height of Admin, which means I'll be doing more behind the scenes work. One of the conditions of becoming an Admin is that you give up being a Section Head. So as my reign of terror draws to a close, let us celebrate the beginning of the reign of terror of...

    ACADEMY: Lesson 3: Character Development

    Hey boys and girls. Firstly, let me apologise for the lack of an August Writer’s Academy. I assure you, it was a one-off due to several of the Writer’s Workshop mods being away at the same time... Just that time of year, you know how it is. Anyway, with that out of the way, let me move on...
