message 1: by Naomi (new)

Naomi  (purplebookdragon) where to start, where to start... you dont have a lot that you're going on. what type of girl is she? is she sweet, mean, shy, over the top, ugly, pretty, tall short, ANYTHING??? when you see her in your head what do you see? and what age are you most conformable with writing? cuz there is a very big difference between thirteen and sixteen.
where does ivy live? what happens during the story?


message 2: by Siareen (new)

Siareen | 22 comments maybe you could do some sort of dark secret, which is the reason her brother was hidden from her and the reason her father died...


message 3: by Naomi (new)

Naomi  (purplebookdragon) dark secrets are good. they make the story interesting. my stories tend to have twists. siareen- *coughs* sara *coughs* lol.

ok, so ivy has long black hair and grey eyes. thats already sort of haunted looking. it goes with what you said about her visions/dreams. are the visions real? do they come true? is she psychic? is she haunted? her living by the graveyard is also cool. and creepy. she's giving me the chills. lol.


message 4: by Siareen (new)

Siareen | 22 comments lol Zoe :)
maybe she did something a long time ago, something horrible that she is ashamed and scared of, and she looses her mind after doing it. her mind blocks out the memory, and also leaves her with other problems.
does killing her father work? but how does the brother fit in?


message 5: by Siareen (new)

Siareen | 22 comments maybe she just witnesses her fathers murder. a very brutal murder. that could drive her crazy. unless you want her to be the murderer.
maybe the brother is also psychic, and because they both are, they have to be kept apart or something.
does he know its his sister?


message 6: by Naomi (new)

Naomi  (purplebookdragon) lol. i know what you mean. ok, so she has visions and dreams that sort of come true. i like siareens idea of killing her father. or something else really bad that she blocked out. then you have another twist in the story, she can be trying to unblock the memory of the bad thing she did but at the same time being scared to know what it is that she did cuz she knows it was something bad. am i making any sense whatsoever? cuz i feel like im rambling on and what im trying to say only makes sense to me.....


message 7: by Naomi (new)

Naomi  (purplebookdragon) until what?

i have a character who saw both her parents die. her mom was murdered and her dad committed suicide. she's sort of a depressed character. and awesome. she is one of my favorites.

them wanting to kill each other is good. it throws in something interesting. but what type of person is she? is she nice, mean, bitchy, shy, angry? what personality does she have? if someone insults her to her face what will she do? punch them, walk away, insult them back, sic a ghost on them?


message 8: by Naomi (new)

Naomi  (purplebookdragon) ok. so now you have her looks, a past, and a personality. what do you want help with next?

Maybe she can play any song on the piano after hearing it once?


message 17: by Ky, The Name Ninja (new)

Ky (poeticshark) | 812 comments Mod
Cool. You still need a last name right?

What's her background/heritage? That'll help.


message 18: by Siareen (new)

Siareen | 22 comments doesnt having mental problems [however small they are] count as quirks? if you really want, make her slightly unstable at times. she can see things that arent there while other people are around, or get into these dreamy stare or something...

just a question- where does your story take place? this world or a made up one?
