You AREN'T cheating, Max, don't tell yourself that. You are rebelling. Big difference. ;) I too am a slow writer...I started my Nano novel in SEPTEMBER. But I put it on pause.
Until the moment was right.

i strongly agree

((also i'm an allthiest so i believe in everything and like to have references from many religions))

venika 11-08-2014 12:57 PM

i just idk
i love my characters so much <3333
i already have ships for my characters and i thought of this amazing conversation between my main character and her best friend
idk i love my nano characters too much

(also i love how characters seem to develop on their own)
(like my main character was supposed to be a fiery, angsty stereotypical dystopian main character)
(and when i started writing her, it turned out she was pretty insightful, intelligent and observant)
(yaas nano)

I'm writing a book series with a really huge plot twist at the end that I'm pretty excited about and I want to tell everyone but I can't. ;~;

Ember 11-09-2014 01:27 PM

Does anyone know a last name that (subtly) means serpent or *brushes off sugarcoating* lucifer?

Not any off the top of my head. Maybe just use a name site?

thank you. I have been but last names are so hard especially when you're trying to pair it with the first name.

Don't even get me started on middle names my gosh.

True. O-e

(dude sometimes i just forget i should probably give them middle names, and then can't think of any, and end up not giving them one anyways. xP)

I found this that might help: http://www.20000-names.com/dragon_names.htm

also what I sometimes do is just go to google translate and plug words in and run it through the most fun languages (Irish, Icelandic, Norwegian, Swedish, etc.).

or I go search up mythical beasts/gods and use their names (liek the antagonist in my current book's name is Laufeia bc she was the mother of Loki in Norse folklore)

but yeah also just going through the bible or other religious things might be fun especially if you're looking for a name that means 'lucifer' c:

Thanks that list helped.

And yes I do that too but I'm trying to find a name that sounds authentic and normal without being too obvious. I shall continue my search though so thank you.

Ahah me too but sometimes if I'm really procrastinating I spend as much time on names as possible (like right now tbh)

Ember 11-09-2014 02:05 PM

Do you think it'd be weird if in church today I just continually bring the conversation to satan? (Watch the lesson be on like food storage)

EmmaR 11-09-2014 08:21 PM

in that play that was entirely a biblical allegory actual literal lucifer was named sam, short for samael, which is a name of the devil.

graceterry 11-11-2014 05:20 PM

I am rewriting-YET AGAIN-The Boundaries. In hopes it will be better this time! I'm doing less of a dystopia, more of a sci-fi, I think, this time, with modern, non-destroyed stuff.

rebecca 11-11-2014 05:27 PM

I have to decide how I'm going to write the apocalypse.
Will the world actually end? It's a bit of an anti-climax if it doesn't. Ladies and gentlemen, I do believe I shall have to destroy the world.

graceterry 11-11-2014 05:40 PM

I'm introducing my old character Rachel.... debating on whether to make her lesbian or bi. . Also, I'm wondering if "Take over the world!" is too dramatic and cliché.

Yes. Queer characters are so important, do it.

Thanks for the advice. I think I will. :)

rebecca 11-12-2014 04:08 AM

Take over the world is a bit cliche. So is starting an apocalypse that gets PREVENTED. That ALWAYS happens. Why does the world never end?

saphiremoon 12-20-2014 04:38 PM

...when you cry because of what you're doing/going to do to your antagonist.

god dammit I'd make her win but I love the protagonists and secondary characters too much too

I want to write a story about teen pregnancy and abortion but it'd have to be a play and I suck at writing scripts. also my parents will not approve of the basis. :/

Go for it! It's a very real issue for our age group, and I don't think there should be any hinderance from getting your message across

Aynonomus_Angel 12-21-2014 08:16 PM

If I write the story/play would some of you submit characters? Cuz I'm so lost on that right now.

saphiremoon 12-22-2014 02:04 PM

yesterday I started a romcom play called 'Tromeo and Clarinet'

I have neither written a romcom nor written a play before so let's see how this goes O.o

saphiremoon 12-22-2014 03:15 PM

okay so to deal with my WB on my main novel (Shadow Realm) I'm rereading the past few chapters (15-17)

and I'm almost done chapter fifteen now and it's when Luana gets the Cloak and Emmery thinks she's hot and he's just being the biggest dork ever

I mean he was looking at the Cloak when Luana was wearing it bc it's magical and shit and then he saw that it didn't have any zippers or buttons or anything and he was going to ask how it came on and off and what had happened to her other clothes but then he was just like "shit wait I'd better not"

I mean he's a complete idjit I absolutely love him <3333

I reall admire how much you have developed and love your characters. You make them sound like they are real people that are south bnch to you and whispering what they should say in your ear as your are writing. =)

meerkat 12-25-2014 12:49 AM

this story is complete trash and it has no plot and it's just a frustrated and chronically anxious kid talking about her life
i'm so done

Ssh. Go with it.

rebecca 12-25-2014 04:47 AM

I found a notebook I haven't seen for months and read some of it and hell yeah I love this story.

A transgender genius on trial for war crimes? Check. His idiot best friend being unreliable narrator? Check. Lots of blunt swearing? CHECK CHECK CHECK.

EmmaR 12-26-2014 04:26 AM

I WANT TO DO HEAVY REVISIONS TO MY PLAY BUT I'M LAZY AND I LiKE IT IN GENERAL BUT IT SEEMS KINDA AIMLESS AT PARTS?? SEND HELP

maxi 12-26-2014 05:58 AM

I wanted to write a gay paranormal romance, but if I told my parents, I'd have to tell them that it's about a straight couple and not a homosexual one because that might hint my sexuality and I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO BUT IMMA GO WITH IT. IMMA WRITE MY BOYS.
