Character building tips by @miss_dewolf
Repost :
"Maybe a little after the fact, but I created my character logbook so I can track all my characters' traits and choices. I used to have this information in my head, but with 35 different characters it was becoming a tad overwhelming, especially since I'm thinking about writing a sequel.

My biggest tip for fellow authors is to write down your characters' values and the goals that follow. When a character has conflicting values they become unpredictable and more interesting to the story... PS. Note how I have a separate field for husband/wife and another one for secret crushes... 😇"

Would your MC approve of the genre you wrote them in? Love this question!! Think it’s so interesting.
My answer to this in No! Christina would not. She’d like reading YA, but not being in a YA contemporary.

✖ COFFEE TIME ✖
When you feel like getting out and about or changing sceneries and discovering a new writing spot, I highly recommend going to a cafe. Perhaps even your favourite! ☕
•
Coffee. Chocolate brownies. Sitting at your own booth chair with so much table space. What more could you ask for? 😍👌
•
Where is your favourite writing spot? 💜

Meet Skylar Crimson. Character from the young adult novel "A chance for porcelain hearts" by Nancy Gallegos. Skylar is a rocker, that loves all kinds of metal and rock music, even if she doesn't understand the lyrics of songs that are in German or Finnish. She is a law student and lives in Pennsylvania. Her birthday is May 12. She is the excentric of the group and the loudest. She loves to bother Hikaru.

“How about a run?”
She snorted. “I’ve never run a day in my life.”
That rare mischievous look flickered in his eyes. “Exactly. It will build endurance.” He started toward the outskirts of town. “Come on, your Highness. I won’t tell the others if you’re sick afterwards.”
Joseline sent him a narrowed look. “I won’t be sick.” Quinn waved a hand at her, not bothering to turn back as he said, “No? Prove it.”

Today’s #writetogether prompt asks for an excerpt. Recently I’ve given a bunch of intense and serious ones. So I figured this little exchange would be a nice, cute change. They may ignore their feelings, but they can be pretty adorable too. 🙃
Also once again the Pintrest gods have graced me with a picture. This time of what I imagine Joseline looks like when she gets focused on training and zoned out. 🤩🤩🤩

Coming up with a title for my novel is the hardest thing ever. I know it’s going to be a series of at least 3 books, so I want the titles to really go together (also know the premise of each book already so that helps!) Hopefully it’ll come to me soon, cause I want to make a title reveal/all about my novel video of this story which has the temporary title Shadowborn (which does not fit the premise anymore). #authorsofinstagram #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #amwritingya #authortube #novel #preptober #preptember

It started in elementary school when I was gifted markers and sketch pads for Christmas, when I joined photography clubs, and was told I had “an eye” for patterns. It kept going when I began to express my teen turmoil through very emo poems (if only I still had a copy of my poem The Hillbilly Ex-Boyfriend 🙃) and recording my fantastical dreams about zombies and flying unicorns.

Now it’s focused to a unique world called Ashkadance, the kingdom in which Ember discovers she is actually Embrence Dragon Daughter - the initially unwilling protagonist raised in secret, fearful of her deformity (🐲 scales). Creating a happy, creative, and growth/challenge-focused life is a driving force in my psyche. How can I spread joy today? How can I be a better person today? Is that a good font choice? (lmao)

Life is what you make it. I’m creating an epic one. It’s all up to me. What is up to you? Can you claim it by taking one step in that direction today? 2018 is my year of Pursuit. Watch me grow. 📸@rhapsodyreads #HappyStoryBible

Ahhh...coffee - how I love you so.
⠀⠀
It’s been an odd couple of days. I’ve been thinking about the feedback I received from my writing coach/editor - and it’s become apparent that I wrote the wrong story. So....now what?!?
⠀⠀
More to come as I figure this out.

#fantasywipseptember QOTD: what inspired your world/story?
•
AOTD: my bullied childhood and my desire to be strong regardless of those bullies and internal demons trying to bring me down. Because bullies are just that, bullies. They don’t deserve the satisfaction of seeing you cry. ✨💜🔮💜✨
•
Also, I love this picture and this kinda looks like the hilt of the dagger I got at the Renaissance Faire this weekend ✨💜🔮💜✨

The 4:45 pm coffee hit me hard. I came up with an idea for a plot twist that changes everything in my story. I personally love the twist because not only is it sufficiently shocking (if I do say so myself), it solves the problems I've been having-a lagging middle, unclear motivations, several disjointed storylines. However, I do have two big reservations: 1) It may be too convoluted for me to adequately explain, and 2) (the big one) It moves too far away from the mood and themes I was originally shooting for.
What do you guys think? How long do you guys stew over your ideas? Do you think mood and theme are important, or are you willing to compromise on those things when the perfect idea comes along? #ineedadvice #amwriting #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #amreading #bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #amwritingya #amwritingmystery #writingadvice #1amwritersclub

Mystery in bonsai gardens starts with a key and then the encounter with a mysterious white fox 🦊 Facts about the fox. Likes to eat a lot, appears in the most awkward moments, it sometimes appears with one tail and sometimes with 9 and its alliance it's unknown. Finding the kitsune it's a blessing or a curse ?

There is a 1950s-style American diner in the heart of Florence, Italy. My main character goes there on a breakfast date, and this very nice waitress I had (her name is Chiara) makes a cameo in that chapter. I wrote a draft of the chapter while sitting in that restaurant, and she gave me her email address and asked me to send her a copy of the chapter to beta read when I finished a more polished version. I just sent it to her this evening. Like, am I just a total nerd, or is that freakin’ cool?

✖ SELECTIVE MUTISM ✖
In anticipation of Selective Mutism Awareness Month coming up soon, I thought I'd share a quote from my YA novel. 💙
This one sentence is just one of the many that depicts the daily challenges of one of the main characters who struggles with this condition.✒
•
Although this little known condition is not the main focus of my book, it does play a huge part in it and shows that despite trauma and the difficulties of life, someone can find their voice and who they really are. But sometimes, they can't do it alone. 💙
Another character shows just how much they care by being there for them, loving and accepting them for who they are and proving to them that they are worth it. 💙
•
I love my book SO much that I can't wait for you all to read it and to meet the characters that shaped this beautiful story. 💜

Evening Booklings! ✨🌻 📚 🌻✨
•
What inspired your love of reading/writing?
•
Well, my parents always read to me since before I was born. From The Lorax to Where the Wild Things Are, to Wemberly Worried, I always had a favorite. And then once I could read, I always loved reading. I’m pretty sure I read every single Magic Treehouse book there was. Honestly I’m surprised I haven’t written a time traveling book yet! Hmmmm...maybe I should...

What inspired you?? ✨☕️📚☕️✨
