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”

The path to writer

I never wanted to be a writer. I don’t think I ever wasted a thought on it at all while growing up, so why do I want to now? I never wrote anything substantial on my free time. I just played games and studied.… Continue Reading “The path to writer”

Trying to be Like Stephen King

I’ve read Stephen King’s book on writing a few times now. What he says makes a lot of sense, but there’s one thing that he and I are fundamentally different.  He seems to be able to work out a story from the get go… Continue Reading “Trying to be Like Stephen King”

Figuring out the writing process Part 2

I belive you use different parts of your brain (or at least have different mindsets) depending on which phase of the story you’re writing. For instance, the drafting phase seem more open, like watching the landscape from afar… I dunno how to explain it.… Continue Reading “Figuring out the writing process Part 2”

Figuring out the writing process

I get Carried away

So, back story is important right? It fleshes out the characters and we get to know them better. I guess back story doesn’t happen on the first draft, but on the second, when you try to make the story more coherent.  I have a… Continue Reading “I get Carried away”

Dream Scenario

Confused, is the word I’d use for writing so far. I’m the very definition of ‘winging it’ and I have to say, it haven’t gone that well. I’ve abandoned several stories and now I’m putting all my efforts into learn my craft. Writing isn’t… Continue Reading “Dream Scenario”

Creative VACUUM

When I first moved into my small studio apartment I was on top of the world! I wrote everyday for hours. Having an apartment was exciting, but as of late, writing have become a chore, and I suspect my environment is part of the… Continue Reading “Creative VACUUM”

When you learn how to write

When learning how to write, I didn’t do it the right way. I started with flowery words and I just wrote from the heart without knowing what made a story. Though, honestly, that’s probably the only way to start because the basics are boring.… Continue Reading “When you learn how to write”
