the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.

Writing Tips #13: Read a lot!

bookgeekconfessions:

My advice? Read a lot.

I don’t mean read other people’s books and steal ideas, but you have to read. How will you know what works or what doesn’t work if you don’t read? How will you know if that brilliant idea you just came up with has actually been done before?

You should do more than just read the genre you’re writing. You should read everything. Nonfiction, articles and and websites about your subject are there to be used as a resource. If your story is about time travelers, but it has an important love story, how can you tell a love story if you’ve never picked up a romance?

Read and be inspired!

You should read everything. You should read classics, trash, young adult books, memoirs, new york times articles and even wikipedia. It will help you get ideas. It will help solidify the ideas that have been churning in your head since you were sixteen. It will help you realize that killing that character on page 100 instead of page 200 is probably a mistake. It will make you see that giving your main characters converse or a bow-tie is just the level of quirkiness your character needs.

So take my advice. Read, read and when your done reading, read some more.

Writing Tips 12: Cassandra Clare’s two things to ask your self about your Characters.

bookgeekconfessions:

1. Is my character developed and believable? Do they seem like a real person? Some people find “character worksheets” very helpful in developing their characters. It’s not hard to find character development worksheets online.Crawford Kilian provides a “character resume” which is not dissimilar. Elizabeth Moon has some detailed instructions on creating complex and realistic characters

2. What does my character *want*? Character arcs are determined by desire. I.E. what does your character want at the beginning of the story? Do they get it? Do they not get it? How does getting or not getting what they desire change them? A character who doesn’t want anything is flat, not to mention not believable.
