This is a thread for writers to talk about all things related to the creative writing process and possibly share their works for critique, much like the Artists Thread, but with regards to the written word. If you're writing something and need some tips, feedback, perhaps even an idea or two to get past writer's block, feel free to share below.

Is it okay to link to them with an "NSFW: Language" warning?

You sure? I've seen mods do that all the time with videos and images. Or do you mean you can't link it because you don't have it up anywhere?

@CanisWolfred Dude, I was just about to make this thread, but I never got around to it. :O


I have someold stuff in my signature (with awkward formatting and stuff sometimes), so if anyone is interested, click it.

I'll link to stuff I'm actually proud of later when I get on a computer.

Oh, no - I don't have it linked anywhere. I thought we were just going to copy and paste stuff. Nevermind...lol

@GuardianKing - Looking forward to it.

As for myself, I love making stories...and never writing them down. I'm gonna change that soon, as I'd like to write a few short stories in 2014. Don't expect much from them, though - I was never a good english student, and if I hold myself to high standards, I'll be too afraid to start.

Am I the only one who tries to keep their stories PG when possible? :P At the very least I'll have an easier time here...you know, if/when I actually have something written down.

In fact, those short stories I mentioned might be tough, since most of the ones I've come up with for the past few years have centered around a specific group of characters and their many wild adventures, whose backstories have become a little too complex to be appropriate for a short story...unless handled correctly, which I may not have the skills to pull off just yet. So I'm going to have to start from scratch, which is fine, since that's why I'm writing them in the first place. :P

So...if nobody has anything to share, perhaps we could start off with basic tips?

I know I tend to find it difficult to start a story, so aside from the usual advice of Brainstorming and outlining, I recommend simply not worrying about how it starts so long as you have something to build off of. Once your ideas come together a little more, it'll be easier to go back to the beginning and revise things (so long as you're not publishing something in parts, anyways...). Basically you're writing a riough draft to start, so of course you can try again later and refine things. I know it sounds basic, rough drafts are a big part of many art forms, I find it's easy to forget, and once you remember that it doesn't have to perfect the first time, things get a lot easier.

I sorta/kinda have a story in the works. I've gotten the beginning chapter and a later chapter mostly finished, but that's it. Plus it hasn't been touched in months. Heck, I haven't even thought of a name for it yet.

I really want to actually continue writing it though. Maybe that'll be my new year resolution or something. If anyone is interesting I can discuss what it's about.

@CanisWolfred Can we call this the "Nintendolife Writers" Thread to parallel the other thread?


Well, here's some of the stuff I'm prouder of, guys :$

For You (Guardians Unchained Short Story)

National Novel Writing Month 2013 Sample (again, from Guardia...

For those curious, Guardians Unchained is a series I'm working on comprised of the main story (still under construction) and several other short stories I'll interject with the characters here and there. The backdrop is supposed to be that of a fantasy world in a modern era (a setup which I intend to elaborate upon later on in the story).

The same format applies to most of the works I am writing (Starship Crusader, Trinity of Time, Children of Eden, etc.), so be on the lookout for that whenever I decide to share something. Also, I tend to experiment with different POVs depending on the tale I wish to tell. :P

@GuardianKing - I don't want to confuse people thinking this is related to the Writers of Nintendo Life. :P

And cool, I'll be sure to give your story a read and see if I can offer any advice...sometime tomorrow. My head hurts right now. :P
