message 1: by Kristin (new)

Kristin Vincent (kristinkitty) I'm currenly writing a fantasy novel. I think i'm going to make my own species of vampire. Any ideas?


message 2: by Emma (new)

Emma Lol, yeah... No like, sparkles, I suggest having fangs.


message 3: by Kristin (new)

Kristin Vincent (kristinkitty) Yeah no sparkles! Fangs are good


message 4: by Kristin (new)

Kristin Vincent (kristinkitty) Yeah I like that idea.

What color hair would be good? I kinda like the idea of orange or red.


message 5: by Frank (new)

Frank Hofer I added blood suckers to my novel, and I got comments from readers that they love the fact that I don't have sparkly vampires. They're not coffin sleeping vampires either. I think they may be my favorite species in the book.

Katarina | 19 comments I used to write short stories about death, but that's all, anybody have a wattpad story?


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm currently working on a fanfiction. It's called A Thousand Years. I based it off of Edward and Bella from the Twilight Saga, and every chapter title is a line from the song A Thousand Years by Christina Perri.

Chloe Fandom Queen Hi, I'm currently writing a novel and I'm stuck on how to get it started. I've got the story line planned out but I don't know how to get the story going. Can anybody help?


message 19: by Makayla (new)

Makayla | 4 comments Hey. I would recommend maybe looking into some books and how they start, that's usually how I get ideas(considering I love to write!) anyways, or you can start it out by one of her problems she's having, or an introduction, or even for her to crave to do something's for instance: "my father always told me adventures are a man thing. And that a princess like me has better things to do with myself. But I can't stop thinking about it. Ever since I was a child, the sound of the wolves howling at night, the birds chirping in the evening and the big full moon, surrounded in the deep dark blue sky, surrounded by thousands and thousands of bright glittering stars." And then you could continute from there.
I hoped I helped. I understand, beginning a story is a HARD THING to do! Good luck!

Chloe Fandom Queen Thanks! That was a great help :D Is there anything else I should know?


message 21: by Makayla (new)

Makayla | 4 comments Umm...what do you mean?
Well I've noticed something that readers really hate. They hate when the story drags to long, or hurries too fast. Umm...also, I would suggest not to put anything inappropriate in the book.
There is many moms and teens out there that do not like their kids to read that kind of stuff, so yeah.
Sorry, I hope these tips helped a bit. And i would love to read your story when it is finished. And was these the type of tips you were looking for?
And glad I can help!


message 22: by Makayla (new)

Makayla | 4 comments Also, I've learned reading a lot, and getting ideas from your favorite books, or books similar to what you're writing may help. So you can see from where they go to the beginning to the end. And how they like gain on the good stuff. Does that make since?


Chloe Fandom Queen Yes, thank you, I think I have a good start now, it's not too long but I think it explains some things well
