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.

 

the-nerdwriter asked
Hi! I don't really know what kind of question you want to be asked, but how are you? Happy Labor Day (if you're in America)! Otherwise, Happy Unbirthday! How's your day going so far? I really love your blog, by the way. You post so many useful and help things, so thank you!

Hot-darn, someone asked a question!  It’s been an A+ day so far, and I intend to get a writing tip out there as a labor day present to my followers. It’ll probably be something about writing in a post apocalyptic scenario.

For the most part, if anyone of my followers has a question about who’s running this blog: you know, check to see if I’m a serial killer or not, ask about fandoms, or ask for a writing tip that would generally be too stupid (but, you know there’s no such thing as a stupid question, only stupid people) or small to ask as a main question.

Notice only 20 shades of gray

It’s been proven that women actually have an acute ability to pick up subtle differences in colors

Then I might be a man because I only see like eight colors in all that mess…

thats probably also because like 1/12 men have some sort of color vision deficiency while only 1/255 women do so

Dear anon: sorry this took me 3 weeks to do, I’ve been out of town, so I didn’t have the notes I took on surfing until today

Redone because I don’t know how Tumblr is formatted.

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.
