True or False??

I read from somewhere that brains need sugar to work. So question is, is this true or false. When you have good and inventious writing going on, are picking up more candy than normal or are you just living with coffee? For me, good peppermint choclate caramels seems to work. I think? :D Have a nice ...

Re: Who should read what you are writing?

Greetings! My name is Juan Manuel. I am trying to write, mainly for hobby. I gravitate towards fantasy, be it classical heroic fantasy or modern settings where fantasy intrudes normal life. I am, however, ver critical of my own writings, and I don't know if I should search for opinions. I found wha...

Re: Book Released!

Wow! Great cover. Looks really appealing to me. Never should though criticize book on its cover but it has to be compelling to stand out and this is just that. Congratulations.

Re: Cliche the writers curse or just ignore it?

"Thirdly, natural dialogue should use cliche as people use them when they speak to one another, that is after all how something comes to become a cliche - feel me? -know what I mean? -see what I'm gettin' at? So, a hard fast rule in some cases might handcuff you." I think you are right.´, ...

Cliche the writers curse or just ignore it?

I want your opinion about cliche. When I started to write my story my friend who has been reading it time to time has giving me these insight what he sees on it when reading it and main topic has been rising up is "Don't write a cliche". It was actually his first advise :D not a bad one bu...

Re: "You should write on paper" advice

When idea pops my mind I absolutely have to write it down somewhere. So learning from these "situations" I'm carrying with me always note book and pen when I'm out. I have post it stickers all over my apartment so I don't have to run to find paper if my computer isn't on. Lately I have bee...

Re: Music for writing

For me it is Oldies Goldies from 60's, 70's, 80's. We have actually one radio channel that plays with non stop so there's no commercial's to interrupt. Oldies Goldies are easy to "not" listen. Even I'm writing I found my self tapping my foot or humming and somehow it doesn't disturb writin...

Re: Am I a Writer?

I guess that when you start your write down a very first word - you are writer. The question is how good you are? Anyway, don't focus on that and do what you love. Found this article, maybe it would inspire you hongkiat.com/blog/signs-you-are-a-writer/ That was interesting article. I have always th...

Re: How to come up names to your characters?

I suspect everyone does this differently, so hopefully you’ll get an assortment of replies. The “fit” of character names is important to me too. Sometimes, I don’t know whether a name is going to work out until late in the story. So, I pick one, then move on. It’s not worth getting blocked by it. T...

How to come up names to your characters?

Simple question but is there a easy answer to it? Hopefully so. I have this problem about character names. Nothing fits that's the usual problem for me. Am I too strict? :shock: I may know exactly how this character speaks, walks, moves. How they dress etc. but I cant fit the name to those images. S...
