I wanna start writing, Is there any tips and pointers you could give me? I just love your wtiting and i wanna be able to write as good as you!:).
well i feel flattered that you think i’m good, let alone good enough to ask advice from!! well i’m still kinda learning as i go so i don’t think i’m the best person to turn to for advice but the few little tips i can give you is:
1. never stop writing!!! even if you feel worried it might not be something others may like, if you like the idea then go for it!!! you’re supposed to be writing for yourself, no one else ♡ (i say this as i never take this advice and im probably gonna get beat by my friends for being a hypocrite but OH WELL)
2. grammar and basic rules are vvvvv important in my opinion, even if a concept is rlly original and cool and amazing, i have trouble stomaching it if it has spelling or grammar errors, they drive me BONKERS. like something as simple as proper punctuation and spacing can turn a fic from good to great! if you’re ever worried, spellcheck on any program can be ur bestest friend
3. as a personal tip, i always listen to music to fulfill my “mood” when im writing. now u don’t gotta do that bc i know some ppl sing along with music so it’s harder for them to focus but for me i have to put myself in the mindset of the fic in order to really feel like writing it, so if it’s smut i put on a good sex playlist lol or if its fluff i listen to bubble gum tooth rotting pop or if it’s angst i put on my emo playlist from 2007
4. take!!! breaks!!!!! don’t force yourself to write if you don’t feel like it! if you start something and then decide it isn’t what you want, before u scrap it completely, step away from it!! take a walk, play with a pet, work on another fic, but just don’t give up on an idea unless you’re truly sure it isn’t what you want. if anything, try asking a friend to give it a once-over, just to see what they think. it always helps to have another pair of eyes, especially since as a creator you’re gonna be more critical of your own work, guaranteed. you need an impartial party to actually see it and see if the story lines up right, if your points makes sense, the idea works out, etc. but please please please, never give up!!
idk if this was any help but pls feel free to ask any more questions and i’ll do my best to answer them in the best way i can!!! ♡ best of luck to you, my new writing guppy!!
