Re: Why do we write?

I guess one reason is to escape the harsh realities of life. Haha, I write stories that are harsher than real life (at least the reality I'm experiencing). I like to throw every single problem imaginable at the main character, but if they manage to live through them, then I can do the same with my ...

Re: Best Writing-Specific Software

Write or Die is too extreme for me, so I settle with the softer and fuzzier version, Written? Kitten! If you keep writing, you'll be rewarded with kittens! Or puppies or bunnies, depends on what you choose. I don't really like fullscreen mode. If I'm thinking of the next sentence or the scene to wri...

Re: Seek a co-author, or fly solo?

I'm a fly solo type of person, but almost always I share my ideas to someone and we end up tossing around more ideas for the work I'm doing. You can't come up with new materials out of the void. Original ideas are just recycled ideas combined together. Even an overused idea that's approached differe...

Re: How to get better at proofreading?

Read a lot. I don't know how old you are but brush up on whatever English Language courses/classes you did at school until all of this stuff is second nature and you don't even have to think it. In your post you: -Skipped out "as"; that's fine, we all miss a word sometimes, spot it though. Read it ...

Re: Weekly drawing -- source of drawing motivation!

I'm not a thread regular I will be soon, but can I suggest a new theme for this week? How about Skyscrapers?

How to get better at proofreading?

I've been writing for long as I can remember and there's one thing evident whenever I sit down to read my rough drafts after I'm done with them: I suck at proofreading. SUCK. I can spot the basic and awkward stuff, but whenever I past it to someone else, they tend to find more mistakes than I do. Wh...

Re: Nonsense Writing?

for a second I thought you mean like Chris Simpsons Artist unless I sometimes write in jumbled and really awkward sentences to fight off stagnant scenes. I hate being stuck in one paragraph forever just because I don't know what the next sentences should be to bridge the first scene to the second s...

Re: The last book you read or what are you reading right now

I'm rereading A Study In Scarlet and about to devour the rest of the Sherlock Holmes stories that I haven't read yet. I'm sort of getting tired of what I have in my bookshelf so maybe you guys can recommend something for me? I'm specifically looking for good LGBT books (that's hopefully available in...

Re: Does fanfiction improve your writing?

I'm super focused on a novel right now, but at the same time I'm finishing my WIP fanfic stories so I could move on completely. I'm Camp NaNo-ing this July as an excuse to focus on my novel instead of fanfics without getting messages from my readers asking when one story will update. But my answer i...
