Thanks a bunches.


So, are you a creative writer? Have you written any creative stories in a while? Any characters you grown attached to? Explain in your opinion.

Enjoy!!!

I think I could be if I actually put in the effort, I have a few stories Im writing but I'm super lazy and only add on to them on occasion.

Laziness is a killer.

How sad.

I can think of ideas but putting them all together into a story is too much work for me

I'm not bad at it I suppose. I've always enjoyed writing stories in my spare time. When I'm in the mood for it. c:

Yes, I write within a variety of genres. Poems, short stories, novels, journalism. You name it. Most especially creative writing. Did a lot of expanding on some literary technique, and growing from that type of writing. I'm working on a story right now. I do have a character, Jake Wilson, that I'm a bit attached to. He's a collective bit of different personas, so to speak. A bit of my father, and a close friend I had in junior high. I think that perhaps the most amusing thing to do is create a character you absolutely hate, for the purpose of character types and personalities. That sort of mean, nasty character everyone loves to dislike. Characters that are intentionally supposed to be obnoxious and annoying too, haha.

Happy writing of the variant kind, to all.

No, I'm not good at writing. I also feel like I have a strong lacking on the creative side as well.

Not really, but I plan on becoming a cruciverbalist when I quit my current job.

I write everyday, but I've never published anything. I'm currently 322 pages into my second draft of a sci-fi fantasy series on which I'm working. I have a very rough draft of the first three books written out across about 10 different notebooks (they're numbered of course, so I don't mix them up), but I'm a little stuck on the climax for book 3 (I know whats going to happen, but I'm not quite sure how to get the reader there) which is why I started my second draft of the first book. I'm hoping by the time I catch up I'll figure something out, but that won't be for a year or so, maybe two.

Whether or not I ever actually put my story out there is my real problem. I'm super self-conscious about my writing. I feel like I have a good understanding of story and characters, but my descriptive skills are lacking and I'm afraid I won't be able to bring the reader into the world I've created.

........................................................................... Take my word for it. I'm actually part of a duo so I don't wanna go around spillin' our creative beans. Gotta keep dem beans safe, baby. I'll spill a safe amount of beans. Like a bean. Just one bean. A friend of ours created the general idea of this character and then we took it much further. He's sort of a dangerous guy with no allegiances. He wants a challenge but nobody can beat him in a fight even though he's isn't some sort of fighting genius. Why? Because he possesses an artifact. An indestructible black crystal owl that can attach to his body and morph around to form some cool claw wings. It's red eyes can become a short sword that can cut through anything with little effort. The best perk is the owls ability to affect time. This basically gives our friend here super speed. The only real limit to his speed is that he'll pass out from the g-forces if he moves too fast. It's seemingly the only downside (at first glance anyway.) I even thought of a shot where a group goes to fight him in the forest. A character blinks so the screen goes black for a second. We hear a lot of loud noise and the eyes open. The forest is already coming down around them.. The only reason our heroes are alive is because he has mercy on them and he has less mercy on some then on others. Some get off with gashes but of the six who go to fight. Only 5 make it back. They're all injured. One who later becomes a main character has lost both of his arms and that will be important to his character development. Now that they've fought him they can form a new strategy and next time. He doesn't stand a chance against one of the mightiest warriors heaven has to offer.
I think about this stuff every now in then. I'll just think of amazing things in short bursts that I can improve our story with like every other week.
