I hope this isn't spamming.

When I write, I read over the results. Now it's like...if I can imagine it perfectly in my mind when I'm reading, if I can almost feel, see, taste, smell everything in it, than I know it's good.

I can't believe it took me that long to realize that.

But I'll always feel like it's aweful.

Hi. I need a title for my new story.I can't think of one. It's pretty much about this girl named Katie. Actually she's Tré's sister. She lives in an apartment with Tré and Billie. She is 17 and they are 18. Katie and Billie start going out but Billie breaks up with her cause he meets Adrienne. I can't really say much more cause it will ruin the story.

Well, personally for me, the title is the hardest part of the story to write. Just try and think of a phrase that sums up the idea of the story. And if you still can't think of anything, pm the story to me and I'll try and help.

I caught myself doing something when I was trying to work on London for a bit and I wondered if anyone else used this tactic to help them along.

I always read my stories backwards. I do. It's weird, I know, but it really helps because you can make sure that your story flows and you're not missing out on a huge detail or that you're not jumping too much. You're looking at it from a different angle and you catch so much little things that improve the story.

Does anyone else do that or am I just weird and if you've never done it, try it. You may be surprised.

I do that sometimes... when I'm stuck, I read bacwards a bit and then re-read from the beginning....

Yeah and you see everything in a new light. Okay, I'm not weird in that sense.

You can just use anything really. I use really random things that just pop into my head, like a little interlude about video games. Laughing Just use anything really. It doesn't really have to play into the story, or at least into the big picture. Afterall, it IS a space filler. Up

How does a ......Billie Joe based Religious Thriller sound?
EXTREMELY Basic Concept:Billie..ex-attempted sucide victim/Catholic-turned-Atheist starts getting the Stigmata

That sounds really cool. But I agree with CristhyneS it would have to have right wording.

********

Does anyone have a solution the right wording problem though? I have some ideas in my head( not all fanfiction), but whenever I write the words down, it ends up looking...I don't know, random, childish, thrown together. I need some help.

I need something for a story: You know those 'everything you need to know' books that you get every now and then? I'd like to know one of them that would have come out say... forty, fifty years ago?

Or, i could just make a book title up, but how would i word it? Right now i have;

‘You memorized everything you could from those ‘everything you need to know about everything’ books. '

Woot.

Um, I need a beta reader. Rhiana had to quit after chapter 4 and I'm lost without her. So, does anyone want to be my beta? You'll be paid in kittens.

When I finish a chapter of Fallen, I send it to you. You proof read it and point out typos or whatever if you feel the need and also just make sure it sounds good. Like, making changes where certain sentences don't sound right or if there's parts that are hard to understand, you point them and out and suggest changes.
