broken everything

broken desire, shattered attire

wear ย that crown of thorns

glass tears and eyes of fire

times like these are in dire

need of fixing

come and help me

broken heart

and broken everything

How about now?

How about now?

I tell you of my differences

that i am not what i seem

i wipe off all my makeup

and throw away my frilly things

cut my hair and put on a hood

oh my goodness, i feel so good.

but wait.

you don’t like it, and i’m offending you?

you say this isn’t something i should choose.

you say i’ll never be the same

and i’m taking your “precious” daughter away.

you say “i’m losing you”

“You’re not my kid anymore”

you know, when i hit a certain age

i’m walking out that door

so i put on my makeup

and throw on a gown

you know that I will never be happy

but do you love your “precious” daughter now?

Writer’s Block! Help!

Writer’s Block! Help!

Hey, guys! I hope you all had a great thanksgiving, because i sure did. In fact, i’m currently eating leftover pie for breakfast. ๐Ÿ˜›

So, you guys know I’m a writer. I’ve been writing for years and have never finished or liked a finished product. The last 2 books i wrote turned out to be really bland and anti-climatic, and I didn’t like them. This is where you guys come in. I would like you guys to give me a topic that you would love to read about, or a certain character/setting. It would help me a lot!

These are the genres I write:

  • realistic fiction
  • horror
  • romance
  • some historical fiction.

Thank you guys in advance for your input, and I hope you have a great day!

Top 10 Hardest Elements of a Fiction Novel

Top 10 Hardest Elements of a Fiction Novel

So, thinking of writing a book? Want to edit a book? Bored? Well, whatever reason you’re here for, you obviously would like to know the main elements of a novel.

There are many HUGE elements to a fictional novel. In fact, it was very hard to pick just 10. Many of these make writing very difficult or stressful for many authors, like myself.

#1: Writer’s Block. The hardest part of writing a novel is getting past that rut in your mind. You can do certain exercises, but your brain just won’t give you the pieces you need to finish your puzzle.

#2: Good leads. If you can’t pull the reader in from the start, then they probably won’t bother to read your book. But if you have no leads throughout the book, they’ll eventually get bored, and we can’t afford that.

#3:Theme. If your novel doesn’t convey a message to the reader, they’ll wonder what the heck they’re reading it for. Sometimes themes are easy like, “Beauty is only skin deep.” But some themes are hard to figure out, and they’re not planning on solving your little riddle unless you’re writing a mystery.

#4:Pertaining to a wide group. who are you writing for? Well, first you have to figure out who buys the most, and then figure out if you can write that sort of literature. If not, you have to settle for something you’re comfortable with. If you don’t think about who would like your book, then not a lot of people will want to pick it up and read it.

#5: Good Climax. You need something to give your reader an adrenaline rush, and a need to figure out what happens next. If your book is just quiet and has no rising action or some sort of conflict, who’s gonna read it?

#6: Vocabulary. If you misspell words and have a short vocabulary, it will bore the reader, and Nobudee wll no wut yer sayin.

#7:Length. Should your story be long or short? That’s all up to you! But if it stops abruptly with hardly any material or good climaxes, or runs on and on until the reader falls asleep, then you have a problem. Like i always say, “Keep a novel like a skirt. Long enough to cover the subject, but short enough to keep it interesting.”

#8: Setting. Where does your story take place? A certain era or a place? Either way, this is also your choice. But sometimes the setting cane make or break your story. If it was in the 1700’s, then it would be way different from something in the 21st century. If you screw up and put cars instead of wagons (Unless that’s your story) then you’ll be confusing every living soul reading your book.

#9: Interest. Make it interesting! Don’t keep the reader bored, or tell them a bunch of stuff that is irrelevant to the story. Make it unique and fun to read.

#10; Last but not least, The Conclusion. How do you end a story? For most authors, that is the most challenging part of a story. How do you wrap up everything you spilled onto those papers? What should happen to the characters? Should the ending be sad or happy? There are so many choices to make, and it personally stresses me out to the core.

Foolproof Pre-write Plan For Writing a Novel or Short Story

Foolproof Pre-write Plan For Writing a Novel or Short Story

I know that almost every author (Including me) starts with an idea for a story at first, and has no idea what to do with it. After years of writing stories and never figuring out how to use elements and good writing skills, I finally made my own pre-writing system. It is easy to use, and as you do it you can see your story unfolding.

Step one: Characters. Write down the names of every character you plan on using in your story, and maybe even draw yourself a reference picture. Then, write down the age,physical description, background info, and any other add-ons you would like.

Step two: Timeline. Write down every event you want to show up in the story on a separate sheet of paper. Then, write them down in the order you would like them to happen, leaving about 2 lines in between each event.

Step three: Character conflicts. On another sheet, write down all of the character conflicts that will happen throughout your story. Figure out where they go among the extra lines on the timeline paper.

Step four: Additional characters/ideas. Last but not least, read through your timeline and character conflicts. Think of characters you might want to add, or events you should place within the story.

I hope this plan works for everybody:) For more tips/stories from me go to my site. Thank you!
