さくら❀Ambassador

I'm an ambassador, more specifically a guide. If you're new to the site and don't understand things, or if you want someone to read or explain the site rules to you, I'm that girl. :)

Winner of the Science Fiction competition, the Battle of the Fandoms Competition and the Young Graphic Artist Prize. Second Place in the Feral Youth Competition. Honorable Mention in the Inspired by a Song contest.

I'm Sakura. High school graduate, embarking on a Gap Year to Japan. I can speak Japanese, Spanish, English and I'm an uncontrollable nerd. I want to learn Chinese next.
私の名前はさくら。外人の作家です。英語も日本語もスペイン語もちょっとチュゴク後も出来るよ!
Mi apodo es Sakura. Soy puertorriqueña y estoy en los estados unidos ahora. Puedo hablar un poco de chino, español, inglés, y finalmente, japonés.

I critique, and would like to receive critique as well. Thanks :)

If you choose to read anything of mine, please read my Movella Victoriana.

I'm not an artist or an author, just someone who has a lot creativity bottled up inside of her.

My sister is Sophia Marie and she's AMAZING!

    the new movellas

    Honestly movellas recently feels more like a cheap social network than a writing website lately. All these funny fridays and instagrams and twitter things, fanfiction fanfiction fanfiction. I do feel as though I've outgrown this site, which is a terrible thought.

    When you feel this, it's time to move to the next level. Get serious, pick your best piece and rewrite it again. Add action or tenderness, describe places, people and things in detail. Then read it...as you read it, make notes about things you could have added or that don't sound right...then go rewrite it again with your notes. When this is done, time to self-publish. Trust me, take the jump and get it started.
    TheShadow
    Sakura can verify this: I fought like a madman to change this site and it just didn't happen. Nor will it happen. I've come to understand what Movellas is since then and it's really simple.
    They say you don't get good at wordcrafting stories until after you've written a million words. Movellas is the place to get started on that. It's a good place to write and have a circle of people comment on it. Out of the 20 that look, 8 will comment and 1 or 2 will be honest.
    But if you are serious about wordcrafting, then you need to take the next step. Get your stuff into the real world, join a group like Goodreads and get some real critiques. Yes, they might be harsh but if you want to grow as a writer, you need to look past that and work towards changing the problem.
    You need to leave this security blanket behind. Then when you get on here, it doesn't matter if 1 person looks at your work or 10,000. You're no longer here to compete in popularity contests and read bad fanfiction. You're a writer, an author that has put your work out and now have what every writer wants...people to read their work because they like their style, not because they want a vote or a critique.
    Flask of Earth
    I love writing and all, but Movellas is turning cheap, I agree. It wasn't as secluded and precious as it used to be, it got overrun with fangirls and stuff. Its okay that they're fangirls, its just that they kinda took our home away. I only get on about once a week now, even less sometimes :/

    If you want a break from it, I can suggest the website or app, wattpad. It's like this app/website a lot
