Do you ever catch yourself while writing and go, “Nope. Nope, that’s not that characters thought pattern at all”?
Writing has become a chore. How do I fix this??
When did writing become a chore to be put off?
Do. Write. Finish.
I know, you’re saying, “That’s easier said than done.” I know it is! So fucking what? A big-ass boulder tumbles down from the mountaintop and falls on your hand and pins the limb, you either gnaw through your arm like a goddamn coyote or you die under the rock. Door won’t open? Kick it down. Wall blocking your path? Bash it with your skull until it falls or you do.
I have non-canon otps of my own characters. Is that even allowed?
I have a sudden need for my book to have a fandom so someone can draw non-canon otps that I can coo and sigh over. Or just so better artists than me would draw out the scenes I am writing.
The scene just won’t form. Think I’ll just skip Ardal’s pov and stick with Ettie’s for another chapter.
Can I just leave out the fight scenes? Please? Actually, no I don’t think I should. I mean fight scenes are some of the best scenes in books and movies. It moves things along as much as the dialog! And certainly just as important as a kissing scene, right?
Not much of a fighter myself how am I to write fight scenes? And I chose to write about werewolves? I must be crazy.
I find that, when writing bios, it’s really helpful to look at a list or a chart like the one above. Picking two or three traits from each chart and building a character based around them will give you a really interesting bio, because they will serve as a reminder that characters need depth and dimension.
Independent and clever.
Independent, clever, pretentious, and stubborn.
The first combination doesn’t come with any flaws, whereas the second will provide a more dynamic character.
