Writing! Right here! Right now!

Post by Mr. Fountain on Tue Feb 03, 2015 12:45 am

Everything writing. From tips*, to discussion, to suggestions, to ideas, to styles, to copy and pasted grammar rules* from Tumblr. 

*Should I just make a separate thread dedicated to writing tips and English lessons? I feel like these kinds of things would be good to archive on such an RP-focused forum such as this.

**Okay, I made a separate thread for general writing tips and English lessons.

Okay, done. Now fly, monkeys, fly! Gather things to copy and paste there! XD

EDIT: I might sticky that other thread once I throw a ton of information on it.

I have a question. Is first person writing considered lower quality than third?

I don't really think it matters, actually. There have been several great works written in first person and third person.

I always felt like writing in first person was an odd thing to do, but for me it was always significantly easier to convey a character's emotions and thoughts that way.

As a side note, your writing tips have already taught me things. Please continue.

I'm just copying and pasting stuff from Tumblr, to be honest, and rearranging it to look better.

EDIT: But if it helps, then I'm glad. XD

I feel like a lot of people make fun of 1st person writing because a lot of YA fiction is written this way and it's easier to write for a solitary character.

With 3rd person (be it omniscient or limited), you have to be able to focus on multiple characters and convey their thoughts and feelings without constantly saying, "So and so character thought this" etc.

Sometimes third person can be weird. The Harry Potter books are written in third person, but quite frequently the reader is still hindered to only knowing what Harry knows or seeing how he feels.

Then again, its fucking named after him, so whatever.

They call it a cult following for a reason apparently.

Also, this is called Third Person Limited.

Third person omniscient would be knowing the thoughts and feelings of all characters.

Also, sidenote:

I like when an author ventures off from the "normal" style of writing.

Example: Cormac McCarthy:

Also, I thought this was neat. Twilight's sounds like a teenage girl's deep poem.

Even if it's really mundane and simple, I have this insatiable need to know what comes next. So, what book is that passage from?

You think that writers would notice that they're reusing phrases and stuf- Oh, God... Now I'm afraid to go back through and read my own writing.

It's from Cormac McCarthy, so it's probably from The Road.

Looks more like Blood Meridian to me given the mention of Brady, Texas and cattlebuyers. The Road was an apocalyptic tale about a nameless man and his son.

Blood Meridian: The majority of the narrative follows a teenager referred to only as "the kid," with the bulk of the text devoted to his experiences with the Glanton gang, a historical group of scalp hunters who massacred Native Americans and others in the United States–Mexico borderlands from 1849 to 1850 for bounty, pleasure, and eventually out of sheer compulsion.

The role of antagonist is gradually filled by Judge Holden, a huge, well-educated man depicted as completely bald from head to toe. Holden is the most philosophical of the scalp hunters and appears remarkably well-educated; however, he perceives the world as fatalistic and liable to an endless cycle of bloody conquest, with human nature defined by violence; he asserts, ultimately, that "War is god."
