Truth, Writing Writers, Editing Work
Yeah... especially true for editing work on some days... *staring at my laptop screen* I know this sentence is wrong, but how do I fix it?
This pretty much hits the nail on the head...
The last one. TRUTH!!!!!
So much truth in this

Oh I love this, so true. For people who just say these out of context. These are serious mental illnesses and shouldn't be thrown around how they are
People need to stop labeling people like this. This pin speaks the truth. We all have imperfections, but that does not mean we label them and call them mental health problems.

Oh I love this, so true. - ima partly bipolar and I was depressed and I used to not sleep for days and yeah
Every person goes through each of these at some point in their lives. Don't let anyone put a label on you, because truth is we are constantly evolving, and who you were yesterday is not who you are today and is not who you will be tomorrow. And remember that if you are not yet who you want to be, this very moment is a new opportunity to chip away at the fears and faults that hold you back.
Oh I love this, so true. Infertility makes you seem like you have mental disorders
So true! So tired of doctors labeling us...we are human!
Oh I love this, so true. My life story.

Villainy 101: Villains Are People Too: How to Avoid Writing a Protagonist-Centric Villain<<<Good thing mine hates an entire people, then, huh?
Villainy 101: Villains Are People Too: How to Avoid Writing a Protagonist-Centric Villain. That villain had a life before his/her crimes that made him/her the way they are as a villain now.
book idea: Main character is the villian, not so much, the hero of the story keeps coming after the main character. They even get a little group together targeting this person and it really is pissing the main character off. So she humors them and becomes the villian because these people are crazy. But then more people believe it and join their cause, and she tries tp prove herself innocent but the people are like crazed. She has no idea what to do, so when they come after her she defends

#110 Because when I get a crazy idea, instead of brushing it off and calling it crazy, I start thinking of opening sentences. Submitted by anon

or i decide the writer of the book i'm reading doesn't know what they're doing and i come up with new opening sentences for that.
I've not yet had a crazy idea that could be a story... but when I do, this will certainly be my reaction.
Because when I get a crazy idea, I start thinking of opening sentences. Not sure where to pin this.
If it's crazy enough for me to stop and think about it, why not everyone else? #writers #writing
And assigning a character to carry out that crazy idea.
Why I Write reason #110 - it starts with a sentence

Author, Books, Draft, Editing, Feeling, Truth, Writing, Writers
LMAO.. Yessss... Oh God, editing is such a bitch. It has taken me much longer to edit and rewrite than to write the original draft!
I feel like the bottom photo for both writing and editing. Actually that is what my office looks like when I am on deadline...hmm. ..
This picture represents the exact way of me writing essays. When I start editing my first draft I can't believe that I wrote it. I don't recognize words and sentences. I feel like cleaning up my kids room after they have played for hours. I find myself playing a quest game called what is where. After editing its absolutely different writing, and a lot better. The first draft gives me a lot of ideas though.
Pretty much. I'm not sure a graphic exists for how it feels editing the subsequent draft/s.
How I felt writing the first draft and how I feel editing the first draft. :)
Yup. Accurate. I just finished the first draft of my book. :)
Writing the first draft Vs. Editing the first draft. Truth.

Thought, Writers, Writing Truths, Character
I've always said a writer is the best actor, because they have to literally put themselves into the heads of multiple characters, act how they would act, and switch rapidly between characters during dialogue.
What makes it worse for me is I have a character with an Eastern European accent (so of course I have to fake the accent when I'm acting the dialogue and I'm pretty sure last summer my new neighbors over heard me with the windows open.)
Seriously? I though I was the only one! I act out my characters all the time like a play. It's the best thing ever.
and if the characters aren't doing anything at the moment, i narrate what I'M doing.
All day long. The characters in my head make work and school more tolerable.
Yes! I do this often with characters to a story I'm writing and it is so fun!
oh my goodness... i thought i was the only one. i do this all the time!
omg... I AM A WRITER!!! I thought I was the only one that did that!!!
YES IT'S THE MOST FUN THING EVER>> EEEK I THOUGHT I WAS ALONE
Title, Writing Problems, Truth, Book, Writers Problems Funny, Writer Problems, Major Problems, Middle
For me, it's: Having a Beginning, but no ending, nor a middle, nor a plot, nor characters. Just this really fantastic idea that needs to be written. Oh and forget an outline. They are useless when you're not even sure of what the fudge buckets you're going to write!
I KNOW RUGHT FOR THE LONGEST TIME I ONLY TITLED THE BOOK AND THAT USUALLY TAKES FOREVER AND I STILL CAN'T TITLE CHAPTERS!
I can't even tell you how long I spend try to come up with a title! THE STRUGGLE IS TOO REAL.
Writing problems:.. Don't forget "What do I name my characters?".
usually I have the title before i even start writing the book.
Middles and titles, man. The struggle is real.
So many more, but these are the major problems

Less so ways to kill people and more so ways to make lives miserable. I'm not crazy (well that's up for debate) I'm a writer.
"If you've ever spent any measurable amount of time considering 'cool' ways to kill people... You're probably an author." - Harry Widdifield #quotes #writing
I hate how creepy this makes us writers seem, but it's true.........most of us actually do sit around and think about how to kill of characters in an interesting or (sometimes) bizzare way // We think like sociopaths but write down things like we're psychopaths
...I actually spend a lot of time thinking about cool way to kill people, it's probably bad for my mental health, but eh, it's all for a good cause!
If you've ever spent a considerable amount of time considering 'cool' ways to kill people... you're probably an author.
Yeah. Lock us up. Throw away the key. Life would be a lot saner (and less fun). Author writer
O.o ive done this...(don't worry people, i do write stories just ask @no way Holly )
Or a murderer. Which author's pretty much are, anyway.

more like the best idea comes and then I have a whole new train of thought for the story and it happens at least four times to me.
Writing Problems # 105 When you're halfway through the story, you suddenly think of all sorts of new amazing ideas, and just sit there rethinking everything again.
Every time! And if I'm already more than halfway through the plot, I get a sudden good idea, but it affects everything, and I have to think if it's worth changing jt. But it's really good, so I just make up another version of the story.
accurate- this is a very real and annoying problem. I either have no ideas, or ideas that make me rethink my entire piece.
I usually start out with a good idea and then that idea completely evolves into a totally different story

I am currently procrastinating, and convincing myself that looking up writing inspiration is productive. It's really not.

UGH!!!!! So then you think about another book, but you should really finish the one you're working on, but hey that other one looks pretty good too... I have Writer's ADHD
That actually happens more often when reading someone else's book, but still, this is so true.

Writer quote by Anne Rice. You certainly do. It's putting your complete creation under inspection for the world to teach you.
Only you can make yourself feel foolish...So rather, it is not that you risk making yourself look foolish, but that you risk rejection from those to whom you show the most personal parts of yourself.<----Love the quote and love what is written here.

Truth, Book, Writer S Life, Writing Tips, Writers, Search History
This is just true, writers as a species have to research some pretty questionable things for their novels, now I don't condone the use of this knowledge for anything other then the novel being written, so use of the info in any other way to me deserves punishment but only if proven to have been use in another way
The truth in this is disturbing. And I did just buy a baby name book at Goodwill for character naming purposes...
So true. Anyone looking at my internet search history would think I was some crazy murderer. The problems of writing mystery novels.
My problems exactly! I research every little thing when I write a story/novel, so that I don't have a hole. But then I remember my government can spy on my internet history and I don't want them to think I'm a murderer since I'm really only writing a crime and mystery novel. It's the same as when I write a supernatural story, like no, trust me, I'm not a Satan worshipper, I'm actually a writer.
See, this is particularly interesting in my case of "I'm Not Even a Very Dedicated Writer, I'm Just Horrifyingly Curious About These Things: A Spinoff". Companion novel: "Oh, God, Please Prevent My Parents From Seeing My Internet History"

BY THE ANGEL YESSSSSSSS!!!! This is totally me. I find parts I adore, then I find parts I hate, and when I read over the whole thing I hate it then I re-write it and I love it.... then a year later and I re-read it and wonder how I could ever write that....
