Where do your characters come from? People in your life? Movies and books? Or are they totally your creation?

I'm very interested in where writers' characters come from. Some are genuinely weird or complex or unlikable but yet feel like real people. I don't know what makes them real so I sometimes wonder if they are based on real people. Doesn't mean consciously, though I mean that too. Could be totally unconscious. A friend writer once went back to analyze his award-winning short story and realized that the character of the crazy surgeon was actually based on his brother-in-law and a crazy dentist from a book he had read. Freaked him out, worrying that if his brother-in-law (a police officer) read t ..read more

I won’t name him Arthur Fleck, Jack Napier, Joe Kerr, or any previously used names for The Joker. One name that came to mind was Walton Brokes, but I’m not sure about that. What names do you guys have? submitted by /u/Bitter-Stranger2863 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

How to handle hand/wrist pain with writing/typing?
Reddit » Writers
by /u/beaisdefabitch

I’m not sure if this question is relevant to this subreddit, but I feel like a lot of writers often deal with wrist pain from the immense amount of writing and typing they have to do to construct their stories. I’ve been in the process of digging back into interests of mine, which include writing a story I’ve had in my head since high school. However, I am a graphic designer (lots of mouse/tablet use), been writing notes, and learning how to code, and I don’t feel like I can give my right hand anymore stuff to do without being in immense pain. It’s been getting worse with time and I’m only 22 ..read more

Hello, This is my first attempt at writing with no formal background and plan to have it published at some point but it is far from finished. There will be five stories with five different writing styles, all taking place in the same location. So far I have completed two ( 20k words each) without refining and editing in a couple months. There are two openings for two different stories below and would love to know your thoughts. Do be gentle though. #1 The rhythmic ticking of an antique pocket watch plays in unison with the muffled pistons of the locomotive’s engine. Curiously gilded and faste ..read more

Imaginative writing.

I have a very vivid imagination. I can imagine shapes, colours, sounds even smells.. I can imagine a scenario as if it's happening in front of me. Yet, I still struggle to turn those imaginations into words. On my first draft, my description was very poor, for example : " His face got pale. his fingers started shaking and his legs got weaker from panic. He couldn't catch his breath, his eyes started to wet with tears. " When you read this.. you don't feel touched. When I observe published works, I notice that the authors use fancy words and poetic ways to describe their imagination.. and I ju ..read more

(Sorry if this is not the place) I'm Not Sure If I Need to Take Certain Precautions When it Comes to Cover Art

I was working on the cover art for my manuscript when I started to wonder if I would get sued for using sketch.io . I intend to look deeper into the website, but I don't know first of all if there are laws about using public software that the website owner(s) in themselves just don't know about. Am I overthinking this? Is getting into contact with the site owner all I need to do? Or are there laws about this that maybe even they don't know about? submitted by /u/askXmeXaboutX2006-7 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I want to create my own story, but I find sticking to a single idea very hard.

I used to love writing when I was young but as I've grown older, I've started to like writing and reading fiction less and less. I can NEVER stick to a premise and I find the act of writing almost boring after a while. This is probably due to the fact that I really would rather be creating a comic but my drawing is shit. I'm a pretty good writer but I've always excelled at non fiction essays rather than fictional literature. Does anyone have any tips on staying motivated and sticking to one idea? I just don't find the act of writing fiction specifically very stimulating. submitted by /u/Kura ..read more
