Spell of Love and Trap of Love · 5:30pm Oct 5th, 2019

Seeing that Spell of Love is my most viewed story so far, I wanted to know what ideas can put into the sequel, Trap of Love. I had Trap of Love planned out and now, I can't figure out how to word anything I wanted to put into the story. I may start writing short chapters to see if I can make it work that way, but ideas from you all would be very much appreciated.

Nice Guys Don't Have to Finish Last: BradyBunch's 4 tips to improve confidence, appreciation, and image · 1:36am Jan 14th, 2020

Recently on my Neckbeard meme post, I mentioned that Nice Guys shake their fist at the sky and wonder what's wrong with society, where nice guys like them don't get girls, but the jocks and douches do. Now, of course, they're douches too. But I have an answer for the timid, passive man as well. Niceness isn't the problem. It's your lack of action or confidence that makes your niceness slip down the slippery slope into Weinerdom.

Tis been a minute · 11:59pm April 18th

Like before I've been learning to write more consistently. Frankly put I found one strange piece of advice that I have taken to heart and that is to write poorly. Writers block can come in a ton of different forms and sometimes the block is just nervousness. One second you could be blocked from writing because you don't actually understand your own characters, they're an idea not a person and so trying to figure out what they'd say or do becomes difficult because that's like asking how would a

Ready... Aim... · 11:59pm Jan 24th, 2015

As a writer, there are numerous factors you have to consider in your story. Are you keeping the reader engaged with your balance of showing and telling? Does the plot make sense, or at the very least, will it make sense in the end? Have you obeyed all the proper rules of grammar, like not using none of those double negatives?

Wait...

Screw it, moving on. You see my point.

Writing and You: A Guide to Failure · 1:38am Aug 31st, 2020

So you want to be a writer. An author. An artist of words. A Lothario of literacy. Well I have a few things to say to all you aspiring bestsellers out there:

Don’t.

Creative writing is a pain of a hobby, even on the best of days. Fiction or poetry, every key-press and pen-stroke is to teeter on the edge of exhaustion. A dead-lift a plate over your limit forcing you to push yourself beyond what you thought capable and the only reward is sweat and soreness.

In Need of Serious Advice · 10:41pm Oct 26th, 2016

So, there's this friend I have from last year in college that I share the same major with. This year, he invited me to Bible study and I agreed, thinking it was going to be a group of other people. On the day of the Bible study, he texted me, asking my to come to the Library, and I agreed. He directed me to the back room upstairs, and I discovered it was just him.

Hotshotting and a Theory on Creativity · 2:19am Nov 26th, 2014

Don’t mind me, just climbing on my soapbox again...

There we are.

Hotshotting, if you’re unfamiliar with the term, comes from pro wrestling. I’ll admit that’s a strange place to start a blog on writing, but given the staged (“fake”) nature of the business, pro wrestling has always had an element of theater and entertainment to it. The basic premise of “Two men don’t like each other, and people pay to watch them fight,” has sold out arenas across the world for decades.
