From writing short stories, to Interactive novels, to Interactive autobiographies!?!
I want to know how YOU write. Anyone from published authors to fan-fic writers, to the occasional person who writes a WiP, but never shows it the light of day and instead let’s it fester in the darkness where it will slowly, but surely develop into the next mutant book bent on human annihilation. (Which reminds me. I better go dust off some WiPs.)
How do you write your stories? Do you have a game plan in mind from the get-go? Or do you just let your creative brain have at it. When you write do you already have an idea for the tone of the story? The type of tense you will use? The POV? Is there a certain presence or uniqueness to your writing?
What has helped you write your stories? What has not? Are there any tips you would like to share to the world? What has NOT helped you? What has been detrimental to your writing?
The reason I ask is because so many of us write, but not many of us ever finish our first story. Whether it be lack of inspiration, time, diabolical children, or the madness known as Writer’s Block.
I feel that a thread to discuss the way people write, how they inject their persona’s and styles into their works, how people go about writing in the first place, and what helps and doesn’t help them would help other aspiring or published authors find new ways to write, or reinvigorate old ones.
Anyone is welcome to share their experience when it comes to writing.
