All the talk about Emmys in the Beginner Writer section, I'm curious who will be hosting them here? I know it's a little early to discuss these things, but hey, gotta be prepared! ;)

Nope. Only reason I can double post now is because the wait time is over.

If this is still a problem, feel free to contact Yabs or Jomei about the issue. To be honest, I'm not sure if it can be fixed.

You mean without "you know who"?


he's not really gone. his account was just deleted. he does have another one. ever wonder why things managed to get fixed despite you not mentioning them? ;) :P

Running into a Writer's Block for TKFA 5. I want to spend more time on character development, but with Obidiah's death and Abigail's return, I feel like there's no practical way to spend time with the characters. I really wanted to focus on the side guys (the ones not in the main cast).

Any suggestions?

So, I'm a writer in my free time off site as well, so it's very likely nobody in this section (or on site) will ever knowingly read my work, but I would like to ask two questions:

First, do any of you enjoy fantasy literature and works?

Second, how many races/sentient (defined as: intelligent AND self aware) creatures would you say is a good number to have living within a realm of your own creation? Total land area would be about the size of combined France + Germany.

Yes.

Hmm...for story's sake, 3 or 4. Gives you a little diversity, ya know?

Yea, I figured around 3 would work. It's a combination of story/world building, as reads like a history book full of anecdotes.

So I've been figuring out my stories pattern and track, and just about everything is planned out. However, I'm having some trouble coming up with a beginning to the first chapter. Does anyone have any advice for that?

I say throw us right in. Give us details, yeah, but shroud a lot of stuff in mystery. How did things go wrong? What was it like on that day/night (night would be a bit more moody, I might add).

I'm starting out a story, but I'm having problems with both planning the method it's delivered (Like how the parts are divided), and where to start. I know I want to do different perspectives, I know that much, but other than that, I'm struggling to start this thing.

Any ideas, bros?

To quote Three:

well what's the story?


Setting and plot, while not needed to answer your question, are important things to consider. I'm assuming you're talking about Wisper II, but I don't want to jump to conclusions
