Hey, so I'm writing a book....

Post by L on Thu Aug 15, 2013 4:37 am

Heyaaaa, never thought I'd be posting in here....but....I am....so....you know. I'm writing a book, I've only just started, but I've got a lot of it planned out already....It's about....well....no spoilers. But I'd love some advice from all of you guys that are adept writers! I know my grammar isn't the best, and I'd prefer the writing to be good. It's in first person.

You're going to want to avoid cliche phrases and terms, like nowadays and things of that sort. Try not to rely overly on one character trying to prove themself to the world or something like that. Because as you can see, there are a surplus of those books and it's starting to get old (Naruto, Harry Potter, Bleach, One Piece, Eragon, Percy Jackson, etc.). I'm assuming it's going to be an off-autobiography. Where you take the position of the main character loosely. Kind of like Starrk's Story in the Chat Room Quotes. If not, please correct me. But you'll want to avoid directly citing actual events if you're writing fiction.

It did, it also had a shitty unfulfilling ending. However, that's not the point I was trying to make.

Just remember to make interesting character, interesting setting, interesting plot, or just kill everyone.

This just reminded me that Qualna was supposed to write more of that story about Kool-Aid man.

Resh, if you do a reboot of that and continue, and do it decently well, I will give you 10000000 tokens and the site title of "Token King".

No, they'd start playing basketball or something or just say they don't know.

Oh okay. The end is fucking terrible. Let's just say.... What you've been waiting to happen since about the middle of book one never happens.

The main character dies, also the main villain wins.







That was a lie....

Okay, I have a little bit written out that is totally subject to change. I will show it to you lovely people.



The Dream Realm



“I’m all alone in the dark. I cannot escape it. Why should I even be allowed to, after what I did? After what I caused the others. All I can do is wait for death to come. Is this all I can do?” I contemplated that question for a minute. “We all have to face our fears eventually… Even me.”



Chapter One : Reality

The sky was clear a minute ago….now the cloud cover blocked out the sun. I could barely see the field in this darkness, though I could still make out the army of skeleton warriors moving towards me. I raised my sword, and cur through them. Not a single blow missed, swiping through bones. As I swiped through one’s spine, another swung it’s sword at me. Narrowly avoiding it, I stumbled backwards and fell over a rock, dropping my sword. There weren’t many skeletons left, but they were closing in on me. I raised my hand to the sky, and the clouds blocking out the sun responded with the rumble of thunder. A few seconds later, lightning began striking the skeletal warriors down. I stood up, and began walking towards the only one left, their apparent leader, a menacing figure in thick black armor riding a black stallion. I backed away, suddenly terrified for some reason. As I turned around, a figure wearing a dark black cloak appeared in front of me. He cut my sword in half with a scythe as I raised it, and grabbed my shoulder with one of his white, boney hands as I tried to run away. I felt myself slipping away, I was sure I was dying. I closed my eyes, and opened them.
I was in my bed. No dark terrifying figure, no army. It was just a dream. “Welcome back to the world of the living, Vern.” I sighed, and got up out of bed. I was disappointed that I wasn't a hero battling evil, but I was relieved to be alive.
