I have done something I consider unusual in a story. I have only seen it done by one author ever. I patterned my main character after me. The closest I have ever seen this done is Clive Cussler, who writes the Dirk Pitt stories. He writes himself in his stories like a cameo. I once heard that all authors put a little bit of themselves in every character. Has anyone ever heard of any other authors creating a fictional character based on themselves?
I'm writing the second novel to a fantasy series. I finished the first novel last week (yay!) and I'm just barely a few pages in and I'm stuck already (GRRR) I don't have either story posted on here but I would love to hear of ways to move passed writers block. Any comments will help!! Thank you :)
It would be great if I can get some feedback on my book, its writing and grammar. (Link here: https://www.inkitt.com/stories/drama/99817?ref=v_fa662391-622f-46f2-9c7b-c52a3f37d8f8&utm_source=shared_web ). Thanks a ton!
I have been working on the first book of my series for a long time and many people including, anime voice actors, say my plot is great but i want to know what i can improve on. I know there is no such thing as perfect a book but i want to hear some feedback. https://www.inkitt.com/stories/fantasy/100474?ref=a_5b7ac0f9-0919-4533-bd13-631de32386c2&utm_source=shared_web
What would you do in a world where creativity was banned? Find out in my novel "To Dream"! There are only 14 copies left of this dystopian-fantasy! Here's some feedback I received this morning:
"Just from reading the first two paragraphs, I know this is gonna be a great book! Incredible idea!" — luvtoread21
I plan to edit my story and would love some reviews on where to tweak. https://www.inkitt.com/stories/fantasy/97614?ref=a_f6c5c65f-29cf-4316-aebe-0b275b29b05e&started_reading=true
Hello, inkitt friends. I was wondering what do you writers prefer? Writing a whole story then putting it on inkitt, or posting and writing chapter by chapter. Which do you prefer or suggest, and why?
Okay. Umm, so first off, I've been working on re writing this story for the past week or so. I think it's looking better. I even fixed the prologue and updated most of the chapters. I'll add the rest in a bit. This is the story I've been working on. Book Two of The Innocent Heart: A New Journey. Please check it out! I adjusted the first few paragraphs, so I hope it's looking better. I finally finished this story cause I got all the chapters up apparently. So I'll be adding them in a bit and will
be working on Book Three. I hope you like it :) If you'd like to review it, that'll be awesome!
Enjoy reading! :D
Hey guys. I'm really just some sort of ghost on this site as i cant dedicate too much time. I was wondering if any of you could help me on solving a... rather personal issue i'm having with some stories of mine. My work has been floating about for a long while as a "work in progress", but... i have almost finished some of these works (just haven't published the final chapters). I was wondering... is it best if i leave it unpublished on this site and publish it for contests or something? or ... See More should i just publish it completely?
What do you find is your largest deterrent when it comes to writing? How do you solve it?
Discuss plots, styles, writer’s block, grammar, technical and creative writing.
