    I think about drunk Sherlock a lot. 

  2. when writing longer fics or novels do you plan everything out ahead of time and then write, write a sketch of it with minimal details and then add onto it later on, write as you go, et cetera. what do you suggest?

    xekstrin:

    Hmmmm

    What I do— I don’t know if this is recommendable— Is I write on a notebook or paper what I want to happen in short bursts. Like, “At one point, character B is going to die and Character A must deal with the continuing threat of the Galactic Empire while trying their best to mourn/come to grips with the death”

    I put that as a finish line and then I just write to that moment.

    It’s not always the climax of the story, but generally the part that is the most interesting to me, so I have something to look forward to, and on the way there I’m exercising my writing muscles so I know I’ll be able to try my best to write it the way I see it in my head. And build up the tension in the story to that moment.

    I have lots of smaller markers in mind— “they have to kiss under the stars at least once” “they have to travel through a swamp and lose the MacGuffin” “they have to negotiate with the swamp dragon to get their shit back”—… you know what I mean

    By the time I reach those points, I usually have a good idea of how to get to the next point and just keep going, writing down any stray ideas or “points” that I wanna reach next. The story sort of unfolds the more I think about it and the more I write it.

    But sometimes by the time I get to those points, I realize they won’t work for what I have in mind, and I have to write something else. Like in The Limit, Finn was going to die really early on. But I realized I couldn’t do that, so I kept him in until the very end, and wound up killing off someone else whose death was more significant/made sense.

    You just have to make it all link together. (something I’m still learning how to do tbh)

    I found a really good visual chart of it once!

    Except sometimes by the time I reached the green/red markers, I realized what  had planned would not work, so I had to change it.

    I’m a little tired and worried that my meaning might not come across right, sorry for the word vomit!! but yea

    Paranorman, demonstrating how it has more in common with many 80’s kids movies than more modern childrens’ movies. You know, like The Goonies.

    I love this movie because it had charm and struck a chord with people that’s hard to do in most movies

    this is my movie

  11. 5 Ways to Build Your Character

    fictionwritingtips:

    When you’ve been writing for a long time, even seasoned writers run the risk of having their characters feel the same. If you’ve been relying on one type of character in all your novels, now is the time to switch it up. It helps to try different approaches when building characters and see what happens. Here are 5 unique ways to develop your characters:

    Ask them questions

    Interview your character. Imagine that they’ve been kidnapped by a group of people who want to stop them. What would your protagonist be asked? How would they react? Would they be calm? Angry? Figuring out this stuff will help you mold your character’s personality. How well they do under pressure is important. It helps to make sure the questions they’re asked fit into the world you’ve created and they remain canon, which is why I suggested the kidnapping scenario. That will help you put them in every situation.

    Build on a common archetype

    You often use character archetypes without even realizing it because they’re almost impossible to avoid. When structuring your character, try to build on a new archetype you’ve never explored before. If you’re always writing the strong male hero, try something else. You can get super creative if you allow yourself to explore outside of your comfort zone. Look up a list of general archetypes and go from there.

    Develop their motivations/goals

    Before you even think about what your character looks like or how they act, think about the goals you want your protagonist to have. What is the endgame of your novel? What do you want your protagonist to accomplish and/or how do you want them to grow. This allows you to look at character development from a unique perspective. Motivations and goals are one of the most important aspects of any character, so try approaching character building from that angle first.

    Try role-playing

    Role-playing with an OC is a great way to test them out or get unique story ideas. You’ll know right away if they haven’t been developed enough or their personalities are lacking. Role-playing allows you to know your characters inside and out and puts them in situations they’ve never been in before. You’ll also be able to bounce ideas off of other writers and see what works and what doesn’t.

    Learn from their enemies

    The best way to learn about a character’s flaws is by asking their enemy. The antagonist of your story will know a lot more about your main character than you even realized. Why does the antagonist want to stop the protagonist? What does their enemy have to gain or lose? Observing the different perspectives people might have of your main character will help you come up with unique situations and allow you to further develop your character.

    steve, bucky and sam going out for early-morning jogs. every time steve and bucky pass sam, they yell “ON YOUR LEFT” and “ON YOUR RIGHT” respectively. sam gets increasingly frustrated. but after a while, steve and bucky realise they haven’t passed sam again, and he’s nowhere to be seen. and they start to get worried, fearing the worst, until suddenly they hear a shout “ON YOUR ABOVE, ASSHOLES” as sam swoops overhead, leaving them behind

    Oh dear God I haven’t seen the movie yet and I thought this was a Supernatural crossover.

    Me too!  Took a few seconds to realize what was going on and stop wondering where Sam got the power to fly…
