BlogClan Tavern

We’ve moved again! We now have a whole new second floor to flood with comments! And look at those exposed brick walls – surely this is nothing other than our greatest tavern to date!

This is the place for off-topic chat, sharing and hanging out, so pull up a chair and settle in!

I’m sure BlogTeam is already looking shiftily towards the sign outside – The Cat’s Meow – and wondering who will be the first to look behind it at the secret page held within.

You can find the old Tavern here!

    Hey I’m new to this page!

    I joined yesterday, I was actually pretty shocked to how many people welcomed me and were just generally nice!

    It was my first day in year 8, did anyone else go back to school today?

    This seems like a really nice place! 👍

    PEBBLE

    Any tips for writing a whole first draft ? Did you write down character profiles to keep track of stuff ? Did you make a chapter by chapter plan first ? Did you have the whole plot planned out first ? How long were each of your chapters ? Ahhhhhh

    I really want to write my story Autumn Stills, here’s the blurb / plot idea 😀

    Warbler lives a sheltered, perfect life in a land where autumn never leaves until one day when everything he’s ever know begins to crumble. Desperate to fix the slowly breaking reality, Warbler runs into a secretive stranger, Iris, who seems to know much more about the magic affecting the world than any other cat. Together, they travel to try and find the elusive, immortal mages to try and save everyone before it’s too late.

    (Work in progress I literally came up with that off the top of my head)

    Any other tips are welcome, I just know for a fact peb has finished a first draft !

    • September 4, 2019 at 6:35 pm

      That sounds awesome!
      Personally, I don’t write anything out. I have really descriptive ideas of certain chapters, and I use those sometimes, but tend to just write a chapter and add in a lot of things. I have an overall plan, but don’t really plan chapters 😛


      💕

    • September 4, 2019 at 7:34 pm

      That’s so neat! I would read that!!

      I’m not peb and I haven’t even started my first draft yet (hopefully I actually get there haha) but I am also working on an original book idea and I’m making a list of everything that happens in the book, and then I’ll organize it into chapters and edit it, and then I’ll actually start writing. But different strategies work for different people!

      I also read online that famous author terry pratchet wrote 400 words a day. I’m trying to do 200 as a starting point. So far it hasn’t been amazing, but I’m trying 😛

      Second version of blurb

      The world is crumbling, and so is Warbler’s sheltered, perfect life. Forced to flee through a world forever frozen in autumn, the young tom cat has to face many struggles he never could have dreamed of. After meeting the mysterious and magic obsessed Iris, the two must work together to try and find the last of the immortal mages and save their reality before it’s too late. But with some secrets, buried and still for too long, how can two young cats, with barely any faith in each other, be trusted with the fate of all life ?

      Would you want to read that if you saw it in the library ?

          Do you have any tips for finishing a first draft / writing a book / how much / ahhhhh

          • 🐍❄Viperfrost, Allegiances Editor Edition❄🐍
            September 5, 2019 at 1:33 am

            Okay, okay, let me try to formulate my thoughts into actual words 😛

            1) For finishing a first draft, I’ve heard of (this is for when you’ve reached the editing stage) waiting a few days to a week and then stepping back into editing, since if you’re editing the book just after you wrote it it’s pretty likely that your brain will fill in any holes in the prose for you when you’re trying to read through it.

            2) For writing a book, what style of writer are you most like? Writers generally split into two main groups, “planners” and “pantsers”.
            Planners are the ones who benefit most from preplanning the book and may have a few dozen fleshed-out completed character profiles next to them before they actually write any of the scenes with those characters in them. Pantsers write by the seat of their pants and often are referred to as “stream-of-consciousness” writers because they write whatever they feel inspired to write, whenever they feel the inspiration to do so. While most are a mix between the two, there is often a leaning toward one or the other. For example, my style is to think through my characters first and have a couple character profiles for the main characters, which I then figure out how to work into the scene I was just inspired to write after I write it. Everyone’s different. 😛

            If you’re mostly a planner, I would recommend looking up character profile questionaires and world-building questionaires, which help to fill out the world before you try to write a story in it. There are a lot of them available for free. There are also resources that can help narrow your plot down from a “plot with conflict in it” to a plot with this main conflict, several side conflicts, and a few minor conflicts that all weave together into the metaphorical rope holding your story together.

            If you’re mostly a pantser, I would recommend designing mood boards and collages regarding your characters, because they can help to get a sense of the characters and inspire you for another scene with them in it. I also sometimes draw the characters myself in a scene displaying their interpersonal dynamics, so I can glance at it when I’m writing and won’t forget about furthering their relationships as well as their plot-related arcs. 😛

            If you mean “how much” as how much I would pay for it, the answer would probably be five dollars after I checked it out from the library, read it for free, waited for the hype to die down, and then bought it from a used bookstore. 😛 I don’t really pay for books all that much unless they’re secondhand and for a holiday present or something, but that’s just me. 😉 I’m not exactly sure how much this would go for as a brand-new book; how many words is it? is it paperback, e-book, or hard-cover? is it self-published or backed by a traditional publisher? All of these could affect the initial price, so I’m not really sure how much a regular person might be willing to pay for it. 🙂

            I know this wasn’t very much information, but I hope at least some of it might be helpful? 😛 (also I don’t know if you saw my reply a couple days ago to the PMV post since i’m forgetful and it was like 1 AM, but spotify won’t let you download songs for free unless you have premium 🙁 i’m really sorry about that, but I hope you do find something and make the PMVs cause they sound great!)

    I want to have stronger abdominal muscles because I’m weak and basically, I’m insecure about how I look, and it’s not that I’m fat, it’s just my body doesn’t have the muscle to hold in the belly that I have (like I said, not fat just the normal level but like… I have no muscle)
    And now that area sorta ache s and like…. does that mean I’m doing it right ???

      Oof big mood!! The thing is, that kind of thing takes practice and time to build up your endurance. You can’t expect to magically be super strong the first time. But if you do even only a few each day, you’ll get stronger in no time! And yes, that ache means you’re building up muscles!! 😀
