Yes! I know what you mean! That always happens to me… it’s like “wait, you weren’t supposed to be that important!” XD
For me, I just kinda roll with it, because hero characters are fun and they just deserve the spotlight, right?
Exactly! Weird how that always happens! XD Totally, hero characters are actually way more fun than th…[Read more]
Totally! Holly sounds cool! Courageous characters are fun to read about!
My hero character, Gavril, is also a side character. He’s the main character’s older brother, and it’s fun to use them as foils for each other, especially since my MC is basically Family Disappointment no. 1. (At least, she sees it that way XD)
Another odd…[Read more]
So, I have a dilemma regarding my 200k epic fantasy novel that I’m hoping to get some thoughts on. But first, a little background:
I wrote the second draft of my epic fantasy last year. Rewrite might be a better word, since it was radically different from the first draft. I outlined most of it, though the plan for the second half of the book was…[Read more]
Brian Stansell started the topic Intriguing Opening Lines (Mystery/Thriller/Suspense) in the forum Mystery/Suspense/Thriller Writers 3 months ago
I am curious, for all my fellow Mystery/Suspense/Thriller Writers out there, how do you begin your stories of this type? Are you willing to share some of your personal examples of your opening lines from a WIP that you use to grab a reader’s attention?
Here are a few that I have used in some stories:
1. Lost, alone, cold, wet, tired and no one…[Read more]
@imwritehere1920 Ey, thanks so much for helping me tag some people! I usually don’t interact much here anymore, so I’m a bit out of touch with the community, haha…
Dystopian/fantasy is something that I’ve been thinking about lately, yeah! You mention wagons and trains; would this be more of a 19th century type of time period?
So, usually I do medieval Fantasy (i.e Ranger’s Apprentice style) with maybe a very light touch of magic (I have a phoenix in my current WIP novel). But I’ve also tried a dystopian/fantasy style for a MG short story I just finished. It’s kinda like alt. history, in the sense that there’s wagons, trains, towns and cities, b…[Read more]
Heya, y’all! We’re running out of people, especially since everyone seems to be busy right about now. I’m going to tag a couple of people who might be interested: (Read as: I’m tagging people randomly XD)
@writergirl101 – I’ll give this one a shot too 🙂
1) Name: Mia
2) Age: 22
3) Career/Role in Story: Hidden friend/supporter of MC who isn’t given as much credit as she deserves. Or maybe an engineer or some kind of ‘fixing’ job.
4): Personality: Friendly, but can be pushed to fierce.
5) Would you be…[Read more]
Here’s my guesses. This girl is stunning, by the way.
1) Name: Tara, Kristin, Sierra
2) Age: 17-21
3) Career/Role in Story: MC or MC’s older sister
4): Personality: A thinker. Pensive and perhaps a little distrusting. She knows more than she is saying. I see her as strong-willed and determined. A natura…[Read more]
Hey, so @writergirl101 also did this chara, you can scroll back to page six if you wanna read that too.
I’ll do yours now 🙂 Beautiful pictures by the way!
Thanks! I found them online.
Name: I’m thinking a name beginning with D – Delia, Delilah, Daniella
Ah, no, Sry, her name is Aylin Chio, but I may write down those names for future use.…[Read more]
I can point you to some free…[Yes, I said FREE]…resources that I use, if you are interested.
I use “Voice Record Pro” on my Apple i-Phone. It is free in the…[Read more]
Oh I’ve looked at Audacity before! Thank you for telling me how to get those and how to edit well, I can’t wait to try it! (Although it may still take a bit with the getting a laptop and drivers’ ed XD). But now I have a good place to start and free is never bad :P! Thanks! <3
I just put in the following search string in YTube “Best Voice Recorder Apps For Android That Are Simple to Use”. The video has several options offer, but I would check to make sure the Apps listed are free to use.
On the video, this one looks promising: “Hi-Q mp3 voice recorder”
I use “Voice Record Pro” on my i-Phone to record the initial voice…[Read more]
Wow, that picture’s awesome!
Thank you! <3
1) Name: Ranya, Neruna, Zuri, Adah? (I’m just making up names lol)
Those are all awesome names! *Quickly scribbles them down* Her name is actually Sahar, which means dawn in Arabic and moon in Hebrew. (I like both meanings!)
2) Age: 17
She’s 18, so you’re really close!
Wow, she’s gorgeous! did u make those?
No, most of my faceclaims are just stuff I found online, although I have some fan art by friends and a few sketches by myself. These were found online. 😉
1) Name: Taliya, Alaya, Riana? Something melodic.
Hmm you were kinda close with Alaya. Her name is Aylin Chio, I’m not sure if that…[Read more]
Wow, I didn’t realize how much you could tell about someone’s personality from looking at them, lol!!! XD Great job, Rose! (this is so fun) <3
LOL, my guesses are entirely unfounded most of the time XD But I’m glad I was close! She does look like a Holly!
Here’s another one of my characters! I posted her earlier but she eithe…[Read more]
