Following on from my recent article How to avoid Female Stereotypes in your novel, we obviously need to discuss some of the male stereotypes.
So, I’m back with my World Building series. So far, I’ve discussed topics such as water, atmosphere, sun, seasons and land so now let’s get to some of those living organisms.
Today’s topic is Flora. (That would be plants)
Having amassed huge amounts of scenes, notes, ideas, plots, character profiles, lists, maps, pictures and more all to do with SEVERAL novel series’, an organised system was needed.
So is it really important? (I hear you ask)
Fight scenes can be difficult to write. Some novels I’ve read, had painful fight scenes that I either skipped completely or re-read just to figure out who was doing what. So this tutorial is an amalgamation of my thoughts on the best ways to do it.
This blog post was suggested by YokoNakajima from deviantART. Big thanks for suggesting 🙂 So I thought I would add it to my World Building series.
The terms “talent” and “skill” can often be heard, banded about. I see many young writers, new writers who speak in awe of someone else’s talent. This is often followed, I am sad to say, by talk of “I’ll never be that good” or “I wish I was that talented.”
It is so easy to get disheartened in the creative arts. When I was younger my writing would suffer horrendously every time I read a great book. As the wow factor of the book faded, it would be replaced by a bitterness at myself and my work. This led to my own novel festering away alone as I refused to “waste my time” on it.
Thankfully I have grown out of that annoying habit and while I do still read books that wow me, they are now just a measuring stick by which I can gauge my own development.
A true writer loves to write, it is a passion that consumes, to some it is even a craving that needs to be fulfilled.
So what happens when the words don’t come, the characters fall silent, the plot line stops… or worse.
