In general, I do not use images within my novel for two simple reasons: I want to save all the good images for something more important instead of wasting them or it is simply too specific that I cannot find in Pinterest or an AI can replicate it. . But, when I do, it is generally to show the appearance of a character ... and that is the dilemma. I know how to draw (more or less), but only on paper and I am not even good to create something of mine because I don't know anatomy and everything. Even if I did well, it would seem ugly to show such a photo to represent a character. That is why I g ..read more

I have been writing and living in my fantasy world for more than 2 years now. i have created some of the most detailed events and characters and fascinating (at least for me). but i have no one to share my ideas with and talk about it. it always helps when you have someone with same interest and hobbies. you would share your creations with them and then talk about the holes and areas that needs filling. every time i meet someone new my first thought would be "does he like to write as well?" or "what would they think of the world i have created?" there is so much passion for writing but no lik ..read more

Alright so I have a scenario for you. a bald man in his mid 40's gets dropped into your fictional universe. he has full knowledge of the events that happen in that fictional universe. he gets dropped in as a person of low standing, one week before the start of the plot. He has one goal, which is to cause as much chaos as possible. what are the craziest things he could do to affect the world or the main character in a way that the main character would definitely notice, but not become plot relevant? submitted by /u/EverlastingWealth22 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I have an idea for a story that involves a treasure hunt. The deuteragonist used to go looking for this treasure, but his son drowned in one of the trips. Now he's super depressed and given up on everything. Can I please have some tips on how to not only write his depression, but also how to make the protagonist motivate him to go treasure hunting again? submitted by /u/Atyn_Rener [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

The Huntsman: Chapter 1 (Dark fantasy / historical fiction, word count: 2,550)

~The Huntsman~ ~Chapter 1:~ The man stood solemnly over the slain beast that lay before him. It had caused him and so many others an abundance of pain and misery, yet he did not hate it, nor did he hate any other beast like it. A beast does not kill and devour its victims out of any ill intent to inflict harm upon them. It does not sink its claws into the soft flesh of men because it wishes to torture them. It does it because that is it’s innate will to do so. A beast only knows two things. Kill and eat. There are no emotions involved in what they do and the harm they cause. They do it and do ..read more

A scene: what’s wrong with this wee bit?

The deer that was not a deer paused in the middle of the clearing, ears twitching for sound, hungry. Mimi covered her mouth as the knees of the creature undulated, swelled and split. The creature’s posture shifted silently with the new joints. It looked around, eyes flittering like butterflies to blossoms. Too fast, too fast. The blur of those eyes, the speed of the movement. It shimmered its fur and made a chittering sound. Mimi bit her fingers to hold the scream those ears wanted. Stillness, silence, these were her salvation, these were her new gods. She prayed to Periphery to hide to, to k ..read more

Looking for conflict inspiration during travels.

So I’ve got characters traveling from one location to another. They have multiple places they will stop along the way and those each have their own conflict or trouble for the characters to face but I was wondering how I could enhance the time in between those locations. Is it even worth including or should I just location hop and give a quick summary about what happened. Has anyone found a way of writing travels they thought was cool? submitted by /u/Holy_Moley_ [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Thoughts on a Revolutionary Antagonist who's in for the power?

I'm developing antagonists for my "character falls into a TV show world" and have the final antagonist planned first because he's supposed to be the most dangerous and scary. Sometimes it's easier to go backwards than rachet up the tension from the beginning and end up writing yourself into a corner. Anyway, the world my main character falls into is a show that was written in the 1950's. Except, it's a bit darker than the worlds of "Leave it to Beaver", "The Andy Griffith Show" or "I Love Lucy". Not "Twilight Zone" level dark. If you've seen Disney's adaptation of "Zorro", then you know the v ..read more

How can I write from the perspective of an emotionless character?
Reddit » Fantasy Writers
by /u/BubblegumLily12
2d ago
Yes, it is an essential part of the story as the plot is centered around their emotions being trapped in a jar by the villain which will be used to fuel something important later so they basically have their emotions drained for now. But I’m finding it very hard to write a character who literally cannot feel anything. I’ve realized how much emotions mean to a story because completely removing it makes my writing so bland when the character cannot react to anything in their environment. A lot of the relationships also fall off really badly because the MC is unable to return any sort of feeling ..read more

I want to learn how to write really good mind-boggling lore and I have no idea where to start so I was wondering if anyone could help. For context, my story is about the universe being balance until the gods got greedy the universe (aka the parents of the gods) decides to create chaos to keep them in check. submitted by /u/BatmanisIronMan [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
