    1. Re: Need Help with Starting a Story

      That could work, it just depends on how you write it. Yeah, it comes down to execution. Though now I'm wondering what would work better? If Stella started the story just finding her job at the capital, (...)


    2. Re: Need Help with Starting a Story

      How does Stella go from "looking for a job" to "hunting for long-lost dangerous artifact"? why does she pair up with the rest of her party? how does she meet them? Surely there are safer, better paying (...)


    3. Re: Need Help with Starting a Story

      you need to define the character and her priorities, then you can decide. If she focuses on the artefact and is looking for money to fund the search, then she comes to that city because of a hint on (...)


    4. Re: Need Help with Starting a Story

      One idea for the intro I had was that Stella goes to the capital in order to seek a job, but when she does find one she also runs into the other characters, and they're looking for the artifact too. (...)


    5. Re: Need Help with Starting a Story

      Really, everything is there, it's just a matter of introduction Example: People come and go through this tavern, seeing me in a slump, alone. ... I've been alone for a long time. (...)


    6. Re: Need Help with Starting a Story

      I'd suggest introducing the characters one at a time. So start with a single POV character, like Stella, and then have her show off her awesomeness in a solo chapter. Maybe have her find the first piece (...)


    7. Re: Need Help with Starting a Story

      Hey, so I need some help with something. I developed this idea for an adventure-type story, but I'm having trouble with some plot elements Here's the basic synopsis of the story I had in mind.   A long (...)

    9. Re: Short Stories/Anthologies

      This is probably a dumb question, but do you think short stories would be allowed on this site? Or a collection of short stories that will make an anthology be allowed? 


    10. Re: Quick Help With Some Motivation

      Feel free to PM me ;) Thank you!


    11. Re: Quick Help With Some Motivation

      Okay, now we are gettin somewhere - you brough up 'a character they will love to hate', and you also said that you want a legit reason for the soldier to hate - not just dislike - the MC. So, while you (...)


    12. Re: Quick Help With Some Motivation

      Nah, it doesn't sound better. However, I'm starting to feel like you simply haven't read enough to realize it just yet, so me repeating the same thing over and over is more or less pointless. It might (...)


    13. Re: Quick Help With Some Motivation

      Making one of - supposedly important - antagonists an inconsistent uter hypocrite isn't a good move. You can't have someone righteous know that his woman was killed because she was commiting serious crimes (...)


    14. Re: Quick Help With Some Motivation

      Motivation is fine, but you need to flesh it out more. Is being a bounty hunter against the law or did the soldier act out of his own jursdiction? Why is it exactly your MC that warrants the soldier's (...)


    15. Re: Quick Help With Some Motivation

      My answer would really depend on whether you're aiming to write a short story or a more developed story and whether you're a starting write or if you already have some experience. In case you only want (...)


    16. Re: Quick Help With Some Motivation

      Just from a quick glance and without knowing the story, it's hard to say. If I understood you correctly, her actions are hinging on this premise: The main antagonist is somehow involved. From that point (...)


    17. Re: Quick Help With Some Motivation

      Hey, I was wondering if I could get some quick help with one of my main characters motivation real quick? I have most of it figured out, I just need to know if it's strong enough or if it can carry through (...)


    18. Re: New Here, Could Use Some Story Help

      Got it, that's a no go. I was thinking of having her follow a more traditional narrative with a beginning, middle, end. And then having her goals and motivations change with every sequel or arc. Which (...)


    19. Re: New Here, Could Use Some Story Help

      Well actually it's only the main character that gets to travel around the country, but each of her chapters usually ends coming back home to her lover, as he's there mainly to heal her wounds and for (...)


    20. Re: New Here, Could Use Some Story Help

      It's not a post-apocalyptic wasteland like Mad Max, so she travels from city to city taking different jobs. And idk what Kino's Journey is. Her original goal was to become a "hero" but the world that (...)
