Mystery Story? 12 Writers 8/23/14 3:36pm
iHikairi
The way I work toward the resolution of a mystery is the same way I'd work toward any ending: know the puzzle you're trying to solve (in this case, the mystery), the pieces (characters, setting, the beginning of a plot), and keep momentum going with scenes that advance the story. If you don't know how the mystery is resolved when you start out, that's fine. Keep working logically with your pieces ...

Guy, are you trolling us right now? edit: also, I am one of those silent downvotes. I saw your thread the hour you posted it, and was probably the first downvote you got. I do that when people post in the wrong place. You didn't even bother to find out where to post this, so I didn't bother to give you feedback.

You're fighting the good fight. You got this. If you want to do some reading about young greats struggling, I highly recommend "A Moveable Feast" by Hemingway. That book is incredible to me. Hemingway writing about his and Fitzgerald's writing depression and how Gertrude Stein was bolstering them both and how they in turn were bolstering TS Elliot. We only see their good work after their pa ...

new novel/short story idea, comments/critique VERY nice 11 Writers 8/18/14 11:17pm

My M.O. is asking questions, so here's some. Where are their parents? Why five kids? Is that a special number? What time of year is it? Where? (school, scenery, wind, temperature) What POV? Important -- will this be a coming of age story? interesting implications, especially because of your emphasis on she "thinks" she knows what she's doing. What is their ethnicity? What's the culture of ...

David Foster Wallace. What exactly are you seeking now? You've been given valid criticism. What else do you want? For us all to apologize and say we're trolling you? We're not.

Different from binder clips, but I probably would have done the same :wink:

"Barton Town" under the "Gaia Community" section. Sometimes people search out partners for "collaborative writing" hereabouts, but my understanding is that isn't quite the same thing.

That man 0ver there
A friend of mine did this. She is currently shopping two novels, and the one like this is less close to being bought, though there has been some demonstrated interest. Just a corollary. edit: the reason she is finding it difficult to shop is (regardless of its quality) she must find a publisher/agent who is interested not only in experimental writing, but also in literary mystery/detective stor ...

I am a binder clip thief. When I show up, binder clips disappear. Writing on computer, I will only use Wordpad, unless I must needs be using Open Office (late stage revision/formatting), single space, 11 point, Calibri. It's not a conscious decision or peevishness -- my brain doesn't work well if I can't quantify the work at a glance. I need to remember writing the night before (how long it too ...

My point is that it's taking way more time to put it down on paper than it is for him to think it. Examine what that thought process looks like. Is there a way to seed information in the text that may be recalled at key moments? (like the way a computer program works) I just now finished a book by John Elder Robison called "Look Me in the Eye" which very successfully communicates an extremely (and ...

Disguising a woman 19 Writers 8/18/14 5:26pm

How does it serve the story besides jolting the reader a little in the end? If you obscure her sex, how can she deal with the sociocultural issues you mention you'd like to deal with? I think these are questions to consider. I don't presume to know your answer, but just personally, I feel like O.Henry jolts rarely serve a long work.

"icky" "thingies" You have to decide if your character is pedantic or not. You can be smart as s**t and not a didact. How much time is this person taking out of his day to think about clinical studies while he's trying to get things done? I'd rather know about this person as a person ("this tastes sweet") rather than how much he knows about obscure "intellectual" stuff.

I'm not sure. It sounds like it's from the FF family, but it's tripping me out because it resembles a very poppy/muzack version of "La Mer" by NIN :rofl:

Draco x Ron. It's a rare one, but I read this fic once that explained exactly how it would happen and it utterly convinced me.
