- Having a Beginning
- Having an Ending
- But WHERE’S THE MIDDLE?!?
- HOW DO I GET TO THE ENDING
- WHAT IS A PLOT
- WHAT ARE PLOT DETAILS
- WHAT IS WRITING
And most importantly:
- HOW DO I TITLE
And if you’re posting it somewhere
- SUMMARY? WHAT SUMMARY? HOW DO I SUMMARIZE ****** WORDS?!
- RATING? IDEK. RATED T FOR TERRIBLE.
What’s the first story or poem you can remember writing? How much have you improved since then?
Wow. I think the first story I really recall writing was in primary school, the final year. I wrote a short story about a girl who somehow came by a sweet that could make her fly. I can’t really remember how it went now, but I remember being praised for it and being like yeah, I like this. I don’t know if that’s the first story I ever wrote, but it’s what I remember, I guess. I remember the praise had an impact on me, quite big - I was quite proud of that story at the time. No idea where it is now. In some old, old exercise book, long lost or in mum’s garage, I suppose.

So, I haven’t posted for a while. Here, or FP. Or indeed anywhere. I’ve been distracted, and lazy, and distracted, and lazy, and….watching a lot of Supernatural recently, amongst other things. I would feel bad but then I remind myself of how many other far better FP writers are out there and updating regularly for you all and feel both better and worse simultaneously, ya know? Anyway, things that may or may not update within the coming months:
I have this problem where I would much rather read the story I’m trying to write than actually write it.
