Writer Rants
« on: April 01, 2017, 09:16:20 pm »
We've got a number of threads like this around, but I haven't seen one for writers. Pardon me if there is one, and I just missed it.

I've been working on a piece for a few months now, and I've been stuck at one spot for a while. The protagonist is supposed to be changing out of soaking wet clothes, and I wasn't quite sure how to write it realistically, so I more or less doused myself in water to have it make as much sense as possible, oops.

I wish I was better at writing in general.

My writing is decent, to say the least-I just wish I wasn't so paranoid when I post any literature works

There's bound to be some stupid typo, and I have to edit it quick before someone points it out

The sheer embarrassment from getting called out on a typo is painful

I'm not very good at writing lore for my characters
But I love writing short stories
I wish I could write back stories for my characters and such

I have so many stories I want to write. Not for anyone else, just for myself but I can't find the motivation. For example I'd love to write out more detailed stories for my fursonas and characters but I can barely even get the motivation to fill out their ToyHou.se profiles

Trying to actually write the story I've been planning since seventh grade is a lot harder than I thought it would be

I'm a decent writer myself, it's just finding a plot and sticking to it is so hard.

I want to write a series involving my characters but, I'm totally unsure what plot/setting I could put them in that isn't cliche. It grinds my gears.
