My Stupid Fan Fiction Writing Technique (Be warned this is really stupid) PART 1

So a friend asked me how I write certain scenes in fan fiction like sad, tense and romantic moments. So I told her how and she said it was both stupid and brilliant at the same time, so now I’m going to share it with you all…

I watch videos to make me feel the emotions I want to write about, literally I have go-to videos to make me feel happy, sad, angry and scared, I know it’s silly but it really works. Here’s a selection…

Happy/Funny scenes

The Sideshow Bob Rake gag just makes me laugh like an idiot, I remember watching this when I was 7 and thinking it was the funniest thing ever and it still makes me laugh FUN FACT: Rich Moore one of Zootopia’s directors was the director for this scene 

The ‘Nobody’s a Nobody’ song from The Amazing World of Gumball makes me feel all toasty inside, it’s a cheesy as hell but I love it. Damn it I want cheese on toast now…

‘Sol and Vince rob the bookies’ scene from the film Snatch is my favourite scene from the whole film, these two are the worst armed robbers ever and the great dialogue always makes me erupt with laughter

Action scenes

The Raid is woefully unknown to mainstream audiences but it’s one of my all time favourite action movies and the Machete fight stands out as my favourite fight scene that always gets my imagination alight…

The first intro for Attack On Titan is the perfect mix of striking imagery and epic music that gets me psyched up to write an action scene
