    Any tips on improving the quality of your fiction writing?

    I know one popular tip is to read what you like to write. For example, if you like to write romance, find a romance writer, or several, whose styles you enjoy and try to emulate their writing styles. Do you know of any other tips, though? What works for you?

    How would they react?

    First, let me explain that my story is now two books deep, unpublished, and though this is a question about werewolves, this is not your typical werewolf love story. I am working on the third installment of the series but am having trouble getting into the pack’s mindset on this topic. So...

    Is there a specific thread/forum for script-writing?

    Writing Craft 
    I'd love to learn how to do it, but nothing I've found myself has explained it in a way I can really understand, especially when it comes to adapting traditional novels. One plan I'm hoping to accomplish for my series is to release it as graphic novels, manga or a web comic, and I want to be...

    Writing an Abusive Character Advice?

    I'm trying to write my protagonist's partner to be an abusive creep that trapped her in a relationship for a few years.

    Bad things in places

    I'm working on something that involves a monster from a dream world running around a small town in the real world (A super original plot). Originally the monster was supposed to nest at a tree behind the protagonist's house, as it was really important to her. The problem is, the monster...

    Service provider or terror trader?

    In the light of new information that has come across, this particular article needs an image makeover in many aspects. As everyone on this earth wants to have ‘the best’, I am willing to give the best. Hence I am taking down the original for the time being. It will take some time to materialize...

    What to charge for Ghostwriting services....

    Hi! Ok, so there's this gentleman in my community that needs some ghostwriting services for his book. I've never done this and I don't even begin to know what to charge. I'm currently doing some proofreading/editing for another local (new) author and I'm charging her $10/chapter (which I've come...

    Medical Question: Facial Surgery

    Hello again, all. I'm writing a chapter that contains a botched facial surgery. Only problem is, this chapter takes place during the 1800's in the Wild West, and I have no idea what reasons they'd have to do facial surgery during that period. Whatever it is, it has to have potential to (if...
