    1. Re: Epic Fantasy - LOTR style

      Hi! I humbly invite you to check out my BL/gay epic fantasy fiction based on Hindu mythology. However, please keep in mind, this is the first draft and I am a new writer. So, please keep your expectations (...)


    2. Re: Mistakes in characterization / character evolution

      It can be an interesting and educational experiment... or not, if it doesn't work for you. :-) What a fun suggestion! I will definitely try it and update you! :peoYes:


    3. Re: English as a second language

      ESL represent here lol. And oh boy, my entire story is about my culture, two hundred percent, lol. One look at my signature will you.


    4. Re: Mistakes in characterization / character evolution

      I'm curious - UnASoulD and FantasyBliss30 and MichaelSilverV - how do you write? I've found that people who have a detailed plan of where they want their story to go are generally better able to bend (...)


    5. Re: Mistakes in characterization / character evolution

      The biggest mistake I make is that my main characters tend to be the most passive of the lot, including with respect to their personality, which doesn't lend itself well to them being likeable/relatable. (...)


    6. Re: Mistakes in characterization / character evolution

      I forced my character to make decisions to fit to the story that were definitely out of place. He was impulsive where I'd said he was meak because I wanted him to jump straight into action. He was headstrong (...)


    7. Re: Mistakes in characterization / character evolution

      Writing exercises are good! I think, for you and the problem with how to make your character react to his flashbacks are a chance at self-reflection. We all have lucid dreams, and day deams and even (...)


    8. Re: Mistakes in characterization / character evolution

      Outwardly, he'd appear normal although those that know him might say he is having a bad day. He might be irritable or distracted or more sensitive. He might cry or get scared or angry for no reason. (...)


    9. Re: What is your favorite POV?

      Another thing about First Person POV is you can do the unreliable narrator thing really really well. My favorite novel is from a unreliable narrator first person POV. BUT, the author who wrote it is probably (...)


    10. Re: Mistakes in characterization / character evolution

      Maybe he's in shock or in a state of denial. So this gives you time to address his feelings in a future chapter. You know what? You ARE right!! Thank you!! That is a good point. But I must address it (...)


    11. Re: What is your favorite POV?

      I can read just about any POV, but I absolutely hate writing in First Person. It makes me feel like I'm inserting myself into the mind of the character I'm writing, which doesn't really sit well with (...)


    12. Re: Mistakes in characterization / character evolution

      I'm not going to talk about making mistakes, as that serves you no purpose. LOL trust me, it will serve me great purpose because I love to learn from other people's mistakes. :peolaughing: Just kidding. (...)


    13. Re: Mistakes in characterization / character evolution

      To the writers in this forum, what mistakes did you make in your characterization or character evolution? I can start.  My biggest mistake I feel is a big life changing event happened to my MC i.e. (...)


    14. Re: What is your favorite POV?

      We read an entire novel in that POV and we found it too gimmicky. XD We applaud your endurance.  :DrakanPotato:


    15. Re: Synopsis Improvement?

      What do you guys think? Which one do you guys prefer? I like the second one for sure. But it still has too much desciption for synopsis. I would suggest cutting down on the lyrical descriptions. Also, (...)



    16. Re: What is your favorite POV?

      We just found out about first person plural and we love it! 


    17. Re: Helpful Tip for Writing Descriptions

      Funny I do not know how but I was already watching that video for some reason lol. Thank you!! :DrakanPotato:


    18. Re: Favourite books on writing?

      Great, thank you! I might check it out. One concern though, can they make your writing too coached?


    19. Re: Queries on writing anything BUT the action.

      Write a scene where two people are just exploring stuff. Start from there, and put lots of dialogue in it. See if that helps. :DrakanWine:
