Here are the results for the fantasy section of the survey.
it’s so so important to donate books when you feel you no longer need them, rather than throwing them out
donating books to used bookstores and to public libraries not only help out their businesses and your local libraries, but it makes books more easily accessible for people who can’t afford to buy the latest books at full price and enables for everybody to partake in the fun that is reading!!! and that’s super cool!!!!!!!
|Are you ever going to post your own writing on here besides the first chapter of Thief? xx|
Maybe bits and pieces of writing in the future. I’m honestly not sure yet, though.
And to be completely honest, I don’t have any other writing to post at the moment unless you want an essay about the creation of patriarchy I’m writing for my women and gender studies class. Or one that compares and contrasts two classical rhetoricians that I’m writing for my issues in rhetoric class.
(Never take multiple writing intensive classes at the same time. It’s a terrible idea.)
|Hi, I just read a post of yours that you wrote a few months ago about plagiarism and had a question. Is referencing another work plagiarism? By which I mean, for example, let's say the protagonist mentions she read Harry Potter and was disappointed when she turned eleven and didn't get a letter from Hogwarts. But she's not meeting Harry Potter in person or going to Hogwarts. She's just mentioning it like a normal fan would. What's the rule on that?|
Referencing another work as pop culture is completely alright.
However, if you reference Hogwarts as if your novel and the Harry Potter novels take place in the same universe, you might run into some issues.
|Did you get outline certain parts of your novel and then just right them? I'm in the process of outling parts of my novel now, specifically individual chapters, and some parts of my novel I'm unsure how to get there/bridge to there. I was wondering if I should try writing out some of the outlined chapters, could you recommend it?|
Personally, I’m the kind of person who likes to outline the entire novel before even starting the actual writing.
But because this is your novel, you should do what you feel most comfortable with. Just because a certain order works for me doesn’t mean it will work for you. If you’re stuck with part of your outline and you think jumping into the writing will help you out, go for it. There is no one correct way to write a novel.
(leans on column near you, wearing a trenchcoat and a shady hat) hey kid wanna talk about my characters
do you think like 600 years ago book nerds got real mad when the printing press was invented because filthy casuals could get books without having to copy them out themselves
Actually yes they did
and there were certain ancient Greeks who were angry when writing was invented, because it meant that literature was more accessible to the filthy casual masses
true shit, people
People never change do they
we got taller
I’ve updated my Tags page, so it’s looking a lot better than it was. Now each tag has a short description of what can be found in it.
I also added three new tags:
So if you’ve ever wanted to find some funny post or pretty picture I reblogged five months ago but never felt like digging through my blog to find it, the bottom two tags will help you locate it.
The Author Needs tag will get some more love seeing as it only has one post in it, but it’ll get there eventually.
Seeing as NaNo is right around the corner, I may make a tag dedicated to NaNo tips and advice, but I’m not sure yet.
