Hello Mr. Writer’s Block

Hello Mr.Writer's Block.png

Hello, everyone! Today I am interviewing someone you may know very well. Mr. Writer’s Block. The obnoxious Writer’s Block is entering this post this very second.

Mr. Writer’s Block: Well Hello there. I am happy to be on this post. Oh- and don’t worry, I’ve done a lot of practicing. 😉

Ava:*Glares* Well… as long as you don’t ruin this post, then I will be fine.

MWB: Okay, sure I definitely won’t ruin your posts’.

Ava: Okay, first question. Why did you start this profession, of causing others to be unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing?

MWB: *Smirks* Since I was a young child, I have been very fond of writing. But there never was a challenge for me. Before I existed, everything was easy. I wanted to make writing an adventure-a journey!

Ava: Well that’s not the case. Because of you *Points at him accusingly* Many people who could have become excellent writers, have begun to form a hatred to writing!

 MWB: …
Ava: Yeah, Big mistake Mr.!
MWB: Well… I’m not sorry, it’s their problem that they decided to despise writing.
Ava: *Glares* Okay, next question. What do you like to do in your free time?
MWB: Ruin writer’s progress, Make them start over, cause others to be unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing.

Ava: Besides that.
MWB: I like to critique books, and laugh at how the authors took me so seriously.  They didn’t have to change the whole storyline.*laughs*
Ava: What! You did all of that?
MWB: YUP…
Ava: Why?
MWB: Did I tell you that I made Jane Austen rename several of her books?
Ava: No… WAit! You made her rename them!
MWB: Yes Ma’am.
Ava…wOw…
MWB: *winks* Wow indeed.
Ava: Mkay. Next question, Cats or Dogs?
MWB: Cats
Ava: Fruits or Veggies?
MWB: Fruits
Ava: Writing or Blogging.
MWB: Writers, they listen to everything. *Chuckles*
Ava: Money or Fame?
MWB: Money. I’m already famous, just sayin’
Ava: I see *slightly smiles* Rice or Noodles
MWB: Rice
Ava: Okay last question, Pusheen or Micky Mouse?
MWB: PUSHEEEEN! Pusheen is AWESOMENESS.
Ava: I have to admit… I AGREE WITH YOU!! PUSHEN IS BOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

Why planning doesn’t work

Why Planning.png

I remember staring at a piece of paper full of scribbles and notes. When will I ever start this novel? I had thought to myself. All my plans and ideas I had scribbled on the page were forgotten. So I clicked the button that said: Word 2013 and started typing about my random story characters. I ended up writing a nice short story. That was the first time I realized that planning doesn’t always work.

when you are writing a story, you need to have a plan. But when you over plan, the story process becomes more of a chore. For me, writing is harder when I plan and it’s easier when I come up with an idea and start writing.

Here are some alternatives to planning

Talk to your characters

Have you ever talked to your story characters? I have many times. When I talk to my character, I learn more about her/him. I imagine I’m the friend and they are having a normal conversation. It’s easy and fun to talk to them.

Write random stories about your characters

When writing, you don’t have to always stick with the story. Open up a new page and write a mini story about your character, and how the character handles a certain situation. Then, if you liked the story you can try to add it into you book.

 

Experiment with other ideas

When writing, try knew things with you charcters. Interveiw your character. Ask them questions. That will help you learn more about them, trust me, it helps.

 

I hope these tips help!
