How I Write My Stories/Books

​I have many, many story ideas that always need writing/typing down. I must have hundreds now waiting to be written! But, the main thing is, how do I begin and complete them?

 

 

 ​The Beginning Step.

 

​                 First off, I either grab a notebook and pen, or, because it's easier, head onto Blogger, go into my story writing blog, and get writing. If I do have an idea, I just think about it for a moment. I picture the characters, creatures, objects, places and try to imagine what a simple plot would look like with it all together.

​ When I've done as said, I just start..​ writing! ​ Besides the ideas for the story I had, there's no telling where the story will go. After I'm at least written a paragraph or two, I stop and consider what I wrote and if it's working with the whole concept. If it is, I may quickly write the basic sentences down to make sure my ideas are kept- Even if I scrap the writing.

​ ​Character Creating.

 This is my favourite part- Creating the characters! I'm lucky enough to  be a fairly good artist as well as a writer, which means I can draw my personal characters and creatures on page. Something I find helpful is that thinking up a personality for your character can help with their physical looks.

​ As you know, I'm honestly horrific at creating male protaganists, so don't be surprised if you don't notice any boys in my stories! But, either way, it's something I'm working on.

 

 

Diving Deeper.

 

 

​ By this time, I will have consumed all my ideas, characters, and possibly the plot, and it's time to real​ start writing. There isn't really much to explain here. I simple am just writing the story!

 

 

 

​Finishing Off.

 

 

​ Ah.. The almost complete project! Hopefully by now the beginning of the story will be completed, the middle as well, and I may be finishing the last chapter. But, there's always that one decision: "What should the story be called?". As you can probably tell, I left this part until after​ I writ the story. This can help a lot.

​ For example, say you named your book to begin with and you called it something like "The War of Puppies", (hehe..)

 and when you finished the story you realise there's also a lot of other animals/creatures in it, it may not seem the right name. You may start wanting to call it "The War of Creatures". So, that is why I leave titles until the end.

 

 

Editing, editing editing!

 

 

​ When writing I write my stories, I don't really focus on grammar or puntcuation. I'll usually edit it all out when I completely finish the book. But, I'd reccomend trying as hard as you can to get most of it right- After all, who wants to have to edit nearly ALL of there story? It'd be like writing a 300 paged book all over again! So, take care with that, but don't think so hard about it that you don't focus on the main part: the story itself.

 

 

 

 ​All complete.

 

 

​ The feeling of a finished story is amazing! When I read over a completed one (That's rare..) it makes me realise how much work I've put into a few words. And then, the best part, seeing people enjoy the stories makes it more then complete. Without happy readers, a book just isn't the same. For example, imagine if J.K. Rowling wrote the Harry Potter series and no one read it! There'd be no films, no suveniers, but, mainly, the book just wouldn't be complete without the people who actual enjoy reading something from your own imagination.​ No one can make a book like your own. Everyone has different minds, different hearts and different opinions. And all together, it can create an amazing book- Even if you don't find it so!

​ Anyone can be a writer, all you have to do is think and.. dream!

  This is Diana the Screaming Death.

Everyone says she must've been a bad egg because she's the SWEETEST SD in the world. She's sort of like a whale.. They're huge, scary looking but, in reality, they're just adorable. Diana has light blue eyes, blue speckles on her underbelly and underwings, and also has large, vunerable looking pupils.

I have been writing a fan-fiction series, currently on Book 6, but if you check the majority of the chapters I have posted, they do not have replies to them.  I do get more pm replies, but there are silent readers that don't post.  Back when the forum had a feature called, "reads" meaning every time someone clicked on your thread, it would record a read.  I did not have a whole lot of replies, on some chapters zero replies, but I still got people clicking on my chapters.

 

Just because no one is replying, doesn't mean that no one read your thread.  I read your thread, just hadn't had the time to respond to it yet.

 

It is better to understand that your readers or those just searching the forum has other things they have to do.  Sometimes you would have to pm your friends to come check out your thread, or merely *bump* your thread by yourself replying to it so that the thread appears on the Active forum topics.

 

Best thing to do is to be patient.  I've put hours upon hours upon hours of work into my fiction books, still I only have a few replies.  Early on, I did not get any.  But I did write for the responses.  They are nice, but I did because I love writing.  And if people enjoy my writing, that is bonus for me.

I AM A PROUD ELDER IN THE CRAZY CLUB!!!! I'LL SAY IT LOUD AND I'LL SAY IT PROUD!!

 

My name is Valasari, Viking from the Isle of Vanaheim. Home to the sick and elderly dragons who make their final pilgrimage to this sacred land. Not many Vikings have made it past the unblinking Sentinel gaurdians, who have stone-like statue appearances and have the element of surprise upon unsuspecting Vikings. They are actually blind, therefore rely on their hearing & smell. They have better hearing than most dragons because of their blindness.

   ABOUT ME

 

I come from the Isle of Vanaheim. So far, the Sentinels have trusted me enough to live among the poor old dragons on this sacred Island. Of course, my Dragons are with me. They had to prove that they were trustworthy, as well as loyal. I have sadly moved away from Vanheim to live in the School. My goal is to become an Ultimate Dragon Trainer and then go back to Vanaheim!! I wish to see the Sentinels again....someday, after I have achieve my goal.

 

   ABOUT MY DRAGONS

 

I saved Saharii from a devastating situation. Dragon Hunters had caged him, but Hiccup and I rescued him just in time.

Now, Zeena, on the other talon, has a wonderful life, I am making sure of it. I wish to befriend more dragons. I hatched her from an egg and raised her. With some help from Saharii.

 

Join me in my quest to save dragons from scum like the Dragon Hunters and Viggo. And as far as dragons are concerned...I wouldn't trade them for anything.....Would You?

 

 

 

   THINGS I LOVE!

 

​0.The Avengers!--DUH! They are amazing!!

1. SilverWeed San--She is my favorite Youtuber!

2.Dragons!--WHO ON LOKI ISLAND doesn't LOVE dragons.

3.Horses--Beautiful animals

4.Razorwhips--my favourite dragons

5.My animals...'cause...well...just 'cause.

6.Reptiles--Who dosn't like scaly creatures?

7.Lord of the Rings--Obviously 'cause Gandolf is AWESOME and Legalos too

8.School of Dragons--Uh...I don't know what to say but I wish I could play it MORE!

Funny things

 

I'm NOT clumsy. It's just that the floor hates me. The tables and chairs are bullies and the Wall Gets In The WAY!!

 

 

When someone told me I was in a fantasy, I fell off my Unicorn.

 

Friend: Did you fall?

Me: No, I attacked the floor.

Friend: Backwards?

Me: I'm freakin' talented!!!!!

The morale of this story. Just believe the cold truth that you're a Klutz. 'Cause I sure am.

 

If a robber broke into our house to search for money....I would laugh and search with him.

 

I hate it when people text me and it says "call me". One day I am going to call someone and say "text me".

 

I can't dance to save my life, but when I step in dog poo, I can moondance better than Michael Jackson. =)

 

 

 

Dad jokes:

 

 Dad lookes at me....."You know hon, I couldn't find a single shoe shop today". I breathe in a sigh of relief, knowing that he won't make a bad joke. Dad: "They only sold them in pairs". I bang my head on the wall.

 

Dad dances around in front of the ATM machine. Me: what are you doing? Dad: Just checking my balance. Me: *walks away to the car*

 

Dad in the morning: You know I stayed up all night wondering where the sun went....then it dawned on me.

 

Dad: Yesterday I ate a clock..it was very time consuming...especially when I went back for seconds!!

 

Dad: What's the difference between a piano, a tuna, and a pot of glue? Me: I don't know. Dad: You can tuna piano, but you can't piano a tuna. Me: What about the pot of glue? Dad: I knew that you would get stuck on that! Me: OHHHHHHHHHH

 

Dad: Did you hear about the guy in KC who was addicted to brake fluid? Me: No..... Dad: Good news! He can stop at any time.

 

Dad and I were at the store and he picks up the velcro: I wouldn't buy anything with velcro....it's a total rip-off.

 

Mom asks dad at Thanksgiving: How does the turkey smell? Dad: Through its nose, I guess. Me: I'm going to bed.

 

Dad after a nice hot shower: You know..... Me: Here it comes. Dad: Singing in the shower while washing your hair is all good 'till you get soap in your mouth.....it then it just becomes a soap opera....

 

That's All Folks!!

for now.....(evil laugh)

This thread is indeed inspirational to me. If I had to be specific I am writing a book, in some sort of sense, that contains small stories (but I try to write them to be very interesting and... unique in my own way). I am also planning to write a story of three (?) books (which is not easy for me so I rather stick to the first style).

 

My favourite part of the writing is with my characters because I can show and share my little sweethearts who are little cinnamon rolls filled with goofiness and happiness (some filled with sadness and sorrow, these can’t be missed in my stories).

 

The biggest problem for me is that I make too much goofy stories of my characters and afterwards I have no use for them (maybe that is the reason why I put them here on this forum). 

 

But there is also a problem finishing the story and that’s why my endings never gives sense. (My friends say that those endings are making them think more about the story and taking it as clue for more, which I did not do on purpose but readers always make it more interesting with their... theories???)

 

But this thread kicked me up back into a mood of making more! So to be very specific, I’m now really thankful! So, thanks for now!

 

And by the way; good luck with your writing! :3

I can be really annoying, arrogant, awkward... stubborn? Well if you ever talk with me in person, your mind could go crazy

I like to sometimes scare people with gorey stuff but I know where my line ends (in case we are great friends, there’s no line :3)

(also I’m in fandom and I’m sucker for roleplays with my OC’s and I really like knock knock jokes... I already know that I am weird :3)

No problem ^^ 

 

Well if you want to read some I have started a thread called ‘My little corner with a trash can and my trashy stories’(?) where I put some goofy stories that got into my mind (and don’t know what to do with them) and for some kind of reason a wrote them in english. Besides I don’t know what I wrote anymore, so yeah x’3
