    Writing everyday scenes without being boring

    I'm not really sure if this question makes any sense, but I will try my luck anyway 🙂 One of the things I find hardest in writing is those scenes that aren't action scenes as such but rather fulfil the function of showing the characters more in depth and maybe let them interact with each other...

    A FUNERAL FOR VIRTUE PART I (1600 WORDS, DARK FANTASY, LANGUAGE, ADULT THEMES)

    Hello all, The following is an excerpt from a monstrous novella I wrote a few months back.

    How do I write a good staring character?

    Even the most interesting, thought out, and well-written of characters shouldn't be the sole focus of a story. This is because each character has a motivation independent of the author's favorite. So how do I write a good story that focuses on a particular character while still having a cast...
