Hello. This is all sorts of tips involving writing and characters

But unfortunately, 'Sam's All Sorts of Tips Involving Writing and Characters' was taken.

 

Redone because I don’t know how Tumblr is formatted.
I really liked this post, so I wanted to do one of my own.  All of the following links are to YouTube

See this is good.  Because the best I can get with describing shoes is basically:
"So what kind of shoes do you wear?"
"Um…  The feet ones."

Reblog if you love to write.

ohfortheloveofchuck:

Whether it be fanfiction, original stories, drabbles, songs, poems, books, or anything that has to do with creative words, then reblog. Let’s gather all the writers of Tumblr together.

That’s so me right now. I’m staring at my screen like, how do I story?

How do you story?

YOU CAN STORY VIA PROMPTS FROM ‘WRITER’S DIGEST’

YOU CAN STORY VIA REDDIT’S PROMPTS

YOU CAN STORY VIA THETEACHERSCORNER PROMPTS

YOU CAN STORY

CAN STORY

STORY

And if you follow anyone who writes, you can ask then to give you a prompt (or maybe 3 words to put into a story), and I’m sure they’d be more than happy to reply.

Got any questions after reading this? If you do, feel free to message me or maybe go actually read a book about it.  

I recommend Ninja: The Shadow Warrior by Joel Levy.

Sam’s Writing Tip #22

You want to expand your vocabulary?

Go to a bookstore, go to education, and find a book on the GREs, or any other test like it.

The GREs are a test you have to take to get into business school after college.

But, regardless of if you’re in college or not, if you get a book on the vocabulary section of the GREs, such as this one: [x], and begin to memorize the words in there, not only will you have the vocabulary of an educated individual, you’ll also have that much less studying to do when you finally get to the GREs themselves.

Though, for the first days of studying your new words, the only complicated vocabulary you’ll have will start with the letter ‘A’.

characterdesigninspiration:

Quite a few people requested some form of trait/personality generator, and here’s the result!  I wanted to keep it vague enough that the options could work for any universe, be it modern, fantasy, scifi, or anything else, so these are really just the basics. Remember that a character is much more than a list of traits, and this should only be used as a starting point– I tried to include a variety of things, but further development is definitely a must.

Could pair well with the gender and sexuality generator.

To Play: Click and drag each gif, or if that isn’t working/you’re on mobile, just take a screenshot of the whole thing (multiple screenshots may be required if you want more than one trait from each category).

Feedback for teen writers from Dr.Glitter: PhD in literature and professor
