Mmm hmm.

I personally avoid giving my OCs or any characters, for that matter, characteristics I wished I had, because then I boarderline or go beyond Mary Sue or Mary Stu. Then I get pissed at myself.

When I'm working with a real person like Adrienne or someone, I give them characteristics I think they would have just but interviews, comments, pictures, thoughts of my own, etc. I think it's worked well so far, but that's just my opinion.
That's all we can do as observers of these real life people we never get to spend any time with. The fact that you observe so closely by using different sources of information proves you're a good writer. Anyone else whom does their homework on the subject they're writing about is also on the paved road to becoming an excellent author.


Well thank you. I like to think that there are more categories to characters and people than 'sex god' and 'bitch.' You know what I'm saying? I can easily go overboard when I go into territory I'm not at least 75% familiar with. . . . . and then I get pissed at myself.

Like I said either here or in another thread, the new story I'm writing right now are literate pages of my own life. Situations that I went through are evident in the text. The players and scenes are different and some stuff is toned down and some exaggerated but it's there.

Isn't it illegal for GSB to contain stories with pornographic material?

YES.... SLASH is included in that...

How it was explained to me was you can outright say they fucked, but you can't describe it in graphic detail.

Badly written sex scenes are another trend that may be happening. You have thriteen year olds trying to instigate passion between thirty year olds. . . . and the outcome is trashy trash. Trasy writing for trash sex.

When I get to an intimate part of my stories, I build up to it, but the actual deed, I'll leave that to the imagination.

A teenie girl who suddenly comes apon a band called Green Day and she lives with them. She's stuck in between each member. One day she'll fuck Tre. One day she'll fuck Mike. The other day she'll fuck Billie. Then the three Green Day members get in a fight over the girl and finally the teenie settles for Billie.

And so on and so forth. Rolling Eyes

That's usually what I do. I've even stopped writing full blown 'sex scenes' because I haven't got experience in it to write stuff like that. I know what you mean about thirteen year olds trying to write sex scenes and intamacy between two 30 year olds i see alot of it.

It's not just sex as well i see alot of other stuff that people try to write about that they haven't got ANY experience or knowledge in what so ever even if it's like, being drunk, or taking drugs. It's like i wouldn't go into full detail about someone taking herion because i have no idea what it's like.

I've got this idea. Everything in it is autobiographical. I'm trying to write what I know, how I feel. I may not know much, but I sure as hell feel alot. I don't know how to fully explain it. It's based on everything about me. Where I live, my mom, my family...everything I feel. Just GD in it. I just have to observe something I don't know as much as I want to, and interpret it if you know what I mean.

The trendy trend that I used to find really annoying but I've begun to do it myself just for the hell of it and see if it actually works is pork-barrelling your own stories. You got the threads, the avatars, the mentions in your cliques signatures (Which I'm just leaving to them, not me). There's nothing wrong with it! This is just the main place in the world that I've noticed this.

I get more and more disappointed every day with these continuous trend stories, all garnished with the same plot and everything else. It's all pointless. They all bloom into the same beginning and wilt into the same ending. Not exactly the same ending, just the idea and the fantasy ending, like Cinderella. I don't expect people to be absolutely wonderful. I mean, some of us just aren't good at writing and some of us are, and it doesn't hurt to try..

I guess this comment was pointless. ._.

I just write about what I know, you can't go wrong there. What's the point of writing a huge sex scene when you don't know much about it, it just ends up crappy and then spoils the story. Imagining what happens is miles better...... *imagines*

This puts me off reading some of the stories and lots of stories I only end up reading the first page and thats it... i'm outta there.
