Re: Just for fun: What movie stars would be best for your MS?

haha That's funny Jaime. I have a character named Scott as Jesse Spencer too. And my protagonist (whose also a minor character in about three of my other stories) is DEFINITELY Jude Law, even though another character in the same story is also Jude Law, so that's what I would call a predicament... An...

POV character

I'm working on this sort of mystery thriller. I've outlined and I know my characters well and I've continued to think about it and write a couple scenes while writing and revising my main story that kind of died and I don't really know how to revive it. So I've decided to start writing this mystery ...

Re: the drawer novel

I'm working on my first novel right now, and I'm sure that it's going to become a drawer novel because it's really not that good. The plot is interesting, but it's not suspenseful enough and maybe a little repetitive, and no matter how much I try to add, it's only gotten to be around 30,000 words. T...

Re: What are you writing now?

I guess mine would be considered literary because I don't know what else it would be called... it has a little bit of romance in it. not much, but still a little too much for my taste. also, i'm working on about four different stories at the same time, but that is my main one. I guess I just have a ...

Re: Pure Pain or Pure Ecstasy??

I have these two main characters in my WIP and I know them so well and love them so much! They both have to die near the end, or else the story's point is totally changed and not what I want to say. One of them is a hypocrite sort of, and the other character's death is sort of his fault, so I've act...

Re: A question for outliners

My outline is always changing as I write. I don't just sit down and write an outline of my story; I write down all the ideas I have for the story, notes about the characters, and info on setting and quotes and such. It starts out as the broad idea and narrows down and gets more detailed as I figure ...

I've been writing since I knew how, and I don't think I could ever stop.

Re: How many projects do you work on at once?

I'm always getting new ideas. I try to work on one at a time, but my new ideas always seem so much better, and when they start to fall apart, I go back to the first story and continue that one. But I have about three going that are really great, and I usually work on one at a time (with the other tw...

Re: Outline or Out of the Mist?

I am an outline writer, but it's hard to get it right. As I write an outline, I always get new ideas for the story and add them into the outline, but then I have all the little details and I just can't seem to get started writing. However, when I try to sit down and write without an outline, I never...
