Frankensteins Monster | A4 | Graphite on Paper

When I looked around I saw none and heard of none like me.

Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth

from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run.

Advice: Is First-Person Lazy?

Anonymous asked: What do you think about writing in first person? I’ve always thought that style is perfect to share a lot more of your MC’s point of view, show the complexity, emotions and internal struggles but it seems more like the suitable style to be a lazy writer now. You can find a lot in the market and not just YA. Seems like writers want to write the less they can and readers not read at all. It’s disappointing and if you combine first person with a cliche or a bad plotline the result is awful.


Any point-of-view is going to be awful if you combine it with a bad plot or cliched elements. And, to be honest, I don’t think first-person is the result of lazy writing. I think that first-person became trendy, and some persnickety readers who don’t like first-person have set-out to trash it in an attempt to get people to stop using it.

First-person simply results in a different kind of story. First person offers a more intimate look into the mind of the character. It’s also more direct, because third-person is about having someone tell you someone else’s story, while first-person is about a person telling you their own story.

Another reason why first-person isn’t lazy is because we all learn to write in first-person. It’s actually the more natural point-of-view for most people to use when telling a story, and many writers have a difficult time writing in first-person. First-person forces you to filter every little thing through the lens of the character’s experience, whereas third-person is more neutral.

The reality is that there are going to be critics of everything, whether it’s first-person or third-person, single point-of-view or multi-point of view, past tense or present tense, and so on. You just have to keep in mind that for every opinion out there, you can find people who have the opposite opinion. So, write in the tense you want to write in and don’t don’t worry so much about that kind of criticism. Lots of wonderful, award-winning books are written in first-person, so you’re fine if that’s what you want to use. :)

Resources: Family Tree Charts

Anonymous asked: Hey, I’m writing a story about a family through the years and the family is quite big (think Weasley to the power of 10) so it’s hard to physically write out. Do you know of any free sites that will let you write out a fictional family tree? (Love your blog, by the way :))


Thanks! I’m glad you’re enjoying the blog. :)

This free family tree maker by Family Echo looks like it could work for what you want to do. This one at Lucid Chart is a bit more complex. Here’s one at My Heritage that you can download for free, or so it says. There are a lot of great free templates available, too. This is one of my favorites. You can go pretty in-depth with it. :)
