writer notes:

  • immediacy is brought about by: tactile detail, short sentences / paragraphs interspersed with long ones, ‘conversational fillers’ (huh / what / really / etc) that express surprise or affectation
  • narration from limited points of view (first, second, third-limited) can/do double as character voices — choose your verbs / adjectives / descriptors accordingly
  • when stuck on how to get from point A to point B, start at point B and work backwards (in your head, if you write as chronologically as i do) — start with ‘what would bring about point B’ and then ‘what would bring about that’ and just keep working backwards until you see a link
  • music helps
  • so do caffeine pills and multivitamins
  • remember that it’s okay to take breaks to think once in a while
  • work ‘til your idols become your rivals

Some people just like to watch the world burn ;)

okay but here’s the thing: i want to watch the world burn

—and then i want someone broken and scarred to take a deep breath, look at the mess, and start building something new with all those ashes

bringing a character back from the dead is easy. it’s cheap. it’s the same old same old same old ‘true love conquers all (even death)’ and usually that’s not even the point of the story, so writers don’t go out of their way to make it interesting.

i love ‘starting again’ stories with all my heart, and the possibility of watching characters i’ve already been made to care about hit rock bottom and then claw their way back up just makes me so happy.
