Parent Category: Writing and Composition
Creative writing refers to a writing style that expresses thoughts and ideas in an imaginative way. It involves creating a work of fiction, non-fiction, or poetry, going beyond the technical, professional, journalistic, and academic form of literature.
Oi. Não sou tão boa em inglês,por isso você vai ter que traduzir.Sou fã da Sandy e soube que ela se revoltou por receber poucas reviews em suas fanfics de Bleach (lindas fanfics). Também por causa das críticas de algumas escritoras que não gostavam dela e a importunavam. Ela...

Only you can come up with a good name! Titles come from the story , not from some anonymous person on the internet! Titles are not as important as some writers think, also - your title might change many times between your first write and your final draft! Think about your story - what is going...
If you're going to be a writer, you must learn how to decide these things. If you cannot think of a mythical creature, you should not write about one. Your character does not have to be some kind of super-being to be interesting. Click the links for help on writing.
Vampires can be anywhere! Here's a link to show you how writers invent place names for their stories.
No, you want to type it out - or pay someone else to type it for you. Use a very common font like Courier, and be sure to use the MLA rules.
Harry and Fred get bitten by a mad basilisk and then they become the same person. After which, Mad Eye Moody and Professor Flitwick get married and honeymoon in an Albanian forest where they meet Lord Voldemort riding a unicorn. Hopefully this has shown you that an author needs to invent their...
First, plot it out -- you need to be able to picture the scene in your head as if it was on a movie or TV screen. . Begin where the action begins. . Put in dialogue and action. . End where the action begins. . Put in a "teaser" to make the character want to turn the page (something that hints at the...

You need to invent your own names - writers who copy ideas from other people end up in trouble for plagiarism! If you copy someone's names or ideas, then when you publish your story, they could claim you stole those from them and sue you for part of your money. I use online name generators for the...
The best way to find names for your characters is to just google "names" or "random name generator". If you go on a baby names website, you can find really long lists. Randon name generators just suggest a name for you to use.
Yes Because we need somethings to calm us at times. Fiction is so much to us because without it there could be no creativity in our imagination and life would seem so dull. Wouldnt it?
What comes to your mind when you think about being lost? What could be lost in your story? The plot has to come out of your mind for it to be your writing -- otherwise it's just plagiarism of somebody else's writing. Click the links for more help.
Writing and reading are not better than one another, but are very similar. Writing is a way to express your feelings and yourself through words. Reading is to read someones thought and feelings and words.

In order to explain to you, i will like you to first understand what a Juvenilia is. Juvenilia is a term applied to literary, musical or artistic works produced by an author during his or her youth. So a reputable publisher of Juvenilia, is someone who publishes Juvenilian works exactly as it...
This is a rather common problem of many writers, and is perfectly normal. Simply no one can always have a great idea on hand, and ideas dwindle as the need for a profound, more intense story is necessary as the writer develops skill. Oftentimes, I find that typical "advice" helps me zero percent,...
Doesn't matter what interests me - write what YOU are interested in! Otherwise you're going to get bored before you're even halfway through. Professional authors know that you can't try to write what's popular now because it'll be over before the book gets published. The only thing you can do is...
Third-person normally gives you more detail and a more complex story, as you can see everything building at once, while still hiding certain details until a later time. It also allows more literary tools to be used, since the comparison between situations experienced by different characters can be...
It is easier to write in first person. It doesn't require a narrative distance .
Look up their name and business address in Writers' Market and be sure you spell everything correctly. Then, write a short query letter explaining who you are and what work of writing you would like them to represent. Enclose a brief sample or summary of the work. If they like your letter, they'll...
It depends on the writer. If you are in a business program, many people will say true. I personally believe it is false. Many people think that first-person writing is "unprofessional" ... and of course, as a student of or working for those people, it should be avoided. I think that removing the...
Conflict develops by having the character's desires thwarted in some way. You can have small conflicts -- perhaps the character wants to get downtown and the car won't start -- or large conflicts -- perhaps the character needs to take a magic ring all the way across the continent and throw it into a...
It depends on what kind of story you're trying to write. For fast pace novels, the plot is slightly more important, although you can't afford to neglect the characters. For novels with a slower pace, you can focus more on characterisation, although again you can't neglect the plot. Generally it...
There are about 250 words per page, so just divide.

Yours. I'll tell you a trick all seasoned writers know - you don'tknow the perfect beginning lines until you finish the story. Onlyafter you've got the whole thing down can you go back and createthe perfect opening lines.
Once upon a time a young prince knew he needed to hunt a deer . He dare not let the next annual fair come without having done so, or the people might force him to step aside in favor of his younger brother. You see, he'd turn 21 then, and would be ascending to the throne - if he had proved...
Short stories don't really have a plot as such, as they are too short to be able to have a plot most of the time. Something happens, then a little bit of action happens and then it ends. So it's better to keep it short and simple. ^ That's actually not true. Short stories do, in fact, have plot....
The 5 parts of a personal letter are: Heading - This includes the recipient's address and the date (in some cases, it's OK to just write the date) Greeting - the act or an instance of welcoming (Dear.......,) Body - the main text of your letter Complimentary closing - The closing...

You can just pretend that you are somebody else and write as if you were writing about another person . You can combined both first person and third person as in the example below. Wolfgang Schwartzschild is a great man. I should know for I am he. If there be a virtue then he has it. If...
The simple answer to this question is "Yes, of course." In many cases, a composition about literature, film, etc., will be read by an audience that is unfamiliar with one or all of the pieces being discussed. If that's the case, plot summaries make subsequent discussion of the books/films/etc. more...
Writing dialogue is not as hard as you're letting it seem. You have dialogue all the time -- it's called talking.

If your character is interesting enough, the readers will want to see more of him or her. Make your characters fun to read about.

You have to think up your own ideas for your books. But, seeing as you already know what you want your book to be based around (crime), then why don't you answer these questions? It should help you to know what you want out of your story, (unless you don't already know): . Who is doing these "crimes...
Whatever you want them to be like. You're the writer! Characters in any story have to come from your imagination. In a mystery story, some of them should be guilty, some should be suspicious, and some should be good at solving puzzles.
On your first book you wont get that much money, you will probably get around £5000 or so, your agent and publisher also have to get paid as well you know from your book, it depends on how much they take, and also if your books are going overseas and how many copies are published.

Situational writing means you toss your characters into a situation and just write whatever happens. You let them do what their personalities dictate. Find an interesting situation, put your characters into that situation, and start writing without planning anything out ahead of time.

Any idea that is interesting enough to you will be a good idea . You cannot write a story or novel based on ideas that someone else invents - you won't be interested enough in the subject to be able to research and write anything that will actually sell. Plus, anonymous people on the internet have...
Your subconscious mind is a wonderful thing. You often dream things that would be good book ideas!
Asking people is a polite thing to do; however if for whatever reason you can't, you can do as many writers do and say at the start, 'All characters and/or places used in this work are totally fictional. Any resemblance to real people and/or places is entirely unintentional.'

Here is a link to show you how writers come up with story ideas! If you're going to write a story, you need to learn how to do this instead of getting some anonymous person to write it for you. For a quest story, you need to think of what the hero or heroes are looking for -- then think of...

You write in a dull manner by not putting enough action into your stories. Write long, boring descriptions of things and have the characters blather on and on about nothing.

A typical good beginning for a superhero story is to start by giving the main character human characters that others can relate to. Next, I would make the hero into a tragic hero by introducing something that they have to overcome like a drug addiction or the death of a family member. This shows how...
It depends entirely upon the story! Some authors start with plot, and others with characters. Some start off slowly and build up the tension, and some start out with a bang right in the middle of things..
I hope not. Go check fanfiction.net I guess if you REALLY want to find one. D:
Um... What are you planning will happen? Details would be helpful.
FFirst, make a main character. Then make a plot. Maybe the character is a child of Kronos and has to repair what their dad has done. Lots of poem generators are good for prophecies. I'm sorry, I can't write your story for you.

its not the same thing the plot is the whole story that builds up to the conflict in the story. So like the story about the boy who cried wolf, the plot is the boy keeps calling for help but the actual conflict is when the villagers dont come and the boy is actually in trouble.
The ending of a story is crucial. The whole climax of the story is building up to this point. The ending should bring closure to the horror of the rest of the story, and should show the reader what happens to the characters right after the story climax. Horror stories have two major categories to...

The tone of the piece of writing conveys our attitude towards our audience and our subject matter.
Setting is where and when the story takes place. It can help setthe mood by either reinforcing the emotion of the characters (suchas setting a scary story in a spooky place) or by being theopposite of what's expected (such as setting a scary story at anamusement park).
Where and when the story takes place is important. If you have astory set in a really odd place, it's not going to be as effectiveas one where the setting makes sense.
You can't find a Triple Crossover Action option on fanfiction. You have to look up a crossover of 2 of the 3 and some people add in a story. It's usually in the summary that they tell you it's a crossover of 3.
They explain how to classify the objects introduced in the topic sentence into smaller groups, or they list the parts of the item introduced in the topic sentence.
I'm not sure that it is... but if it is, it is because it is easier to treat smaller subjects in a short story. You don't have to develop the ideas as much, and you can cope with smaller topics. You could do this in a novel as well, but it is harder, and could take more development.
You have the plot already figured out. If you get bored and quit, you're not really cut out to be a writer. Writers write because they can't stop! If you have lots of other ideas, and are just bored with that one, just switch and write the other idea instead. really really focus on what you're...

A good novel, like a good story of any sort, can transcend time and place -- in other words, it is so good that it doesn't matter what the setting is. Stories like A Christmas Carol , The Lord of the Rings , Pride and Prejudice , or Moby Dick are great reads even if they are clearly in a time...
Good writers do not use "story starters." If you want some ideas for something to write about, use the internet to find unusual things, or watch the news, or go outside and watch the people in your neighborhood. A writer is observant, and everything they notice will give them ideas for stories. If...
