No one will write the story in the same way that I will.… Continue reading Knowing what makes your work unique

This is something that is more or less debated time and time again. Whether the writer should debate over the placing of every word or just let it be.I feel as though there is a time where I simply should just let it go. Telling myself that nothing is perfect and my work will not… Continue reading When is a manuscript ready?
Honestly speaking, I am writing serials. From the very beginning serials have always been how I planned out my stories more than novels. Since I always thought beyond just a single book, beyond just a trilogy. I merely thought about the story, where it begins and where it ends.And here is where I will talk… Continue reading What is a serial?

Without conflict, I can say there will be no story. Conflict raises all the stakes, is the one which keeps me hooked, excited and curious just where to see it.

No, I can say that these two do not always go hand in hand. You have stories that is dark but have no depth and stories which are light and have plenty of depth. What makes a deep story is how the author uses the themes, the setting the characters to give out depth. To… Continue reading Does a dark story mean a deep one?
I have a belief that these two are separate in the first place. Storytelling is all about the elements of the story, writing is how you use the medium to express it. Some people are a swordsmith others are masters at telling the story. And a writer, sometimes they are stronger in one than the… Continue reading Storytelling VS Writing
My answer is yes. They should, they should make an effort to learn about anything that they exhibit an interest in. Mostly because of the fact that if you're going to just study writing, you're going to run out of ideas pretty soon. And the fact that for me, I just have plenty of other… Continue reading Should Writers Major In Other Disciplines?
I'm not a fan of that advice. Not at all. I think that all writers should write what they want, and an amateur should not be made to feel bad about their lofty ambitions. Because that is what makes us unique as writers. The work that we dream up, no matter how big it seems… Continue reading The Advice Of Starting Small
To me this is important. Very important as all of us tend to be guilty of the fact that we try to fit into the industry, and well after so much failed attempts or thinking that I just did not do a good job in truly writing my stories in the way I intended it… Continue reading Writing What You Enjoy
My answer is always to ourselves. Write what you want, write how you see the world. There is no one who can say whether your world is unrealistic, unless of course the people do not really face any consequences from their actions, nor any effects come from it. And well, I dislike those who appeal… Continue reading Should We Appeal To The Market or To Ourselves?
There are many series which I fell in love with just because of the jokes and the setting. Sometimes, when I simply want a break from all the seriousness I pick up something funny. Which I can simply laugh together with. And they often remain my most memorable books. To the degree that I'm also… Continue reading How Important Is Humor?
For me, I realised that I have been rewriting a lot of works or looking into everything, again. Only one of them is complete, the other is quite closely so. But by that point, I figured out where I should go next. Although right now I'm a little less certain whether I will not just… Continue reading Indecision

I would say this is vital to almost every writer that there is some place where you can just put all your ideas. It is rather important for me, and I end up buying three to four notebooks each year just for this. Sometimes for ideas, other times just for outlining and sometimes for details.… Continue reading Keeping A Notebook
Personally, it's not just about the style or the nature of the story. It's not really up to choice, as without either of them the entire story would fall. Even if it leans to be a bit more on either side, I still expect a decent plot or relatable characters who have some depth. And… Continue reading Choosing Between A Plot-driven, or charater-driven story.
Personally, I'm fine with clichés that are few and far between the entire story. Notorious or not, I don't really judge it as long as it has a reason to exist in that particular novel. Or a reasonable explanation why. Or a good plot twist with that cliché. Personally, clichés are fine when they are… Continue reading Clichés, should it be used or avoided at all costs?
Honestly, I don't think it should be a lot of the entire book. Mostly I plan out the plot and what has to happen to push it forward. And worldbuilding details when it comes to me. And also the rough personality of the characters and their role. I normally keep my options open, and more… Continue reading How far should a writer plan?
Happy New year to you all, and here are my goals for the entire year. What will I be focusing on this year, and what are my goals would be: This year would be a hard year for me, seeing that I have a major national exam sitting at the end. But I will still… Continue reading New Year’s Goals
