How can you write truefully?

The best writing comes when you are yourself, when you don’t have any expectations. That’s why it’s so difficult to write, not because you have high expectations to go big, if that’s the case then you do it for the wrong reason, or you’ve… Continue Reading “How can you write truefully?”

Digging for gold when there are gems in the sand

Stories, I can find them everywhere. In nature, in books, in people, in movies, in shows, in patterns in the sand, in sound, everything is a reminder of a story. Stories aren’t manufactured, I firmly believe, they are out there to be found and… Continue Reading “Digging for gold when there are gems in the sand”

When the story becomes dull

I’ve talked about this before, but I really need to beat it into my brain so I don’t make the same mistakes again: I cannot separate plot from character, character is plot and they decide what happens. Granted, it’s good to have a general… Continue Reading “When the story becomes dull”

Characters Rebel

I’m a very, in the now, kind of guy. I hate to think about the plot, on what has happened and what will happen. I much rather let the story take me on a ride. The characters do what they want anyway. They have… Continue Reading “Characters Rebel”

The writer in you

I read this book called, Deeplight. It’s about two orphan boys who just try to survive in a fantasy world where there once existed deep sea monsters, or Gods. The gods are dead and the people collect the parts of the monsters and they… Continue Reading “The writer in you”

Stephen King Lessons

Stephen King on Writing… I’ve read it a few times now and I just want to share my favorite quotes from the book along with some of my own revelations! (1) When you write the story, you’re telling yourself the story. When you rewrite,… Continue Reading “Stephen King Lessons”

Is a backstory even necessary?

The backstory… Such an elusive term. What is it? I mean really, when do I use it? I’m not saying this to be cute, by the way, because I have many instances where I’m writing something and the backstory is more interesting than the… Continue Reading “Is a backstory even necessary?”

Writers High

I often wondered why I write. If I write for myself, writing stories become quite easy because you only write for your own curiosity’s sake and most scenes happen in your head. However, for me, writing means change and when I try to write… Continue Reading “Writers High”
