Re: The Ultimate Character Template

I think you guys are being far too critical, the template can be changed and altered to your likeing and I'm not saying all 50 sum questions have to be used, this is just to hopefully allow you to develop your main cast of characters. Filling this out for EVERY character would just be a hassle and t...

Re: How much time do you spend with your characters?

I work extensively on my characters and flesh them out to make them sem as "human" or "rational" as possible. I think that having great characters is a very high priority for ANY story because if the characters aren't likeable then regardless of how good/bad the story is I won't care. Some of my fav...

Re: Would a harem with a girl as a main character work?

A little late but I'll still add my 2cents. I a huge strawberry fanatic of course female harems are possible and have been done for many times (most being "reverse" harems in which one girl is surrounded by many guys) but awhile ago I talked about an idea I once had for a yuri harem here One day I h...

Re: Writing about other character's memories

Actually this occurance isn't as hard to overcome one you think of it in a new perspective. Clearly if you're writing a story and telling it in a 1st-person narritive then your lead character will be oblivious to thoughts of other characters, however this is not to say you can't allow the reader to ...

Re: Light novel outline

Hmm, I see your point, reading is all but obsolete around me, but as I can't do much on my own I have to settle for this. Thank you for your insight, even though it looks bleak, I still don't want to give up! But before that I need to figure out so much, this is the 1st time I've written something n...

Re: Light novel outline

Eh, I'm not really looking for anyone to really judge my work, esspecially at this early stage as this was a new story that was in part inspired from one of my stories I forcedly dropped a long time ago. This story doesn't have a tittle, character names, and very little guidence beyond it's 2nd book...

Re: Playing Games vs. Making Games

I love to watch anime and I love to play game, because even if I come across the same concept multiple times I also run into different ways of telling it. As far as I'm concerned yes there is pretty much a template to writing stories nowadays since there's little originality left in the world, but o...
