Just a quick question, who all reads every thread with a new marker? Even if the thread doesn't pertain to you at the moment, it may have valuable information or patterns that parallel that you may find important to the story. ;)

Also, goodnight all. I will try to post tomorrow.

Yo! This guy does! I like to see what people are up to and to try and improve my own writing to keep up with the really good writers. (Im looking at you Crysanthe. You and your incredibly detailed posts. Like im reading Tolkein all over again with the flowerly language! How do you manage it?!)

I just enjoy imagery. ^^' It is hard to think of some likeness' though. :o

EDIT: I did not mean to post this immediately, damn you quick keys, Bane of my existence!

Anyway, for instance my more recent post included birds and their shadows on the ground. I was really struggling because usually when I write I use birds as reference for something quick/agile (A lot of my imagery is from nature, it's so pretty! Plus it fits in nearly every setting. <3) but since I was describing bird shadows.. well I had a 3 minute or so dilemma where I finally brought up the salmon, since I know documentaries mention them leaping up waterfalls to lay eggs where they were born. Those little busy bodies!


Thank-you for the compliment though! I don't really see myself as a decent writer though, my structure is usually abysmal and I've noted writers who are so very amazing. One who could convey so much in a select few lines, and another who could describe something with such beauty. ^^' I'm trying to work my way to the latter, then hopefully I can reach the first ;3 but I have to improve my structure before that happens.

Plus I've seen some really good writers here! It's just a matter of whether you enjoy writing. I usually get lost in a scene, and write for a while non-stop. Then sometimes I'm sat scrawling for some creativity. My minds too spontaneous for it's own good. ;c

But nonetheless, thank-you for your compliment! It's greatly appreciated. ^^'. I just work off what I see, or what I've imagined. :)

Again, a small little nit-bit into my way of thinking is that at night whilst a friend was driving me home (Thankfully I wasn't driving and getting distracted...) I noted at some angles the lights of the streetlamps moved out in lines, in a arrow-like fashion sort've like this > o < . That immediately made me think of a cliche sweet wrapper. Since then I've wanted to convey that in a scene, but I haven't got to a scene like that in my writing. Bleugh.

But that is just a little bit of how I get my imagery. :P Some is thought off the spot when I see it, at other times it is literally at the computer whilst writing. ....


Guys, I've gone on a gander again. Boo!

Edit: Plus I read over my previous post (not in the ooc) and I realised I've mispelt something... See I'm bad at writing. XD Temptation to edit.. but then it'd say it was edited and... nooooooo.

When I write, it depends on who I am writing as, because I enjoy the temperament of some of my characters and dislike those of others. Then, of course, it depends on who I am responding too. If I can picture the scene myself and enjoy the character I am responding too, I can post fairly easily. Now, my problem is not being able to describe what I see (as you can tell by my poor location posts).

Edit: I also have a problem of occasionally having way too much writers block.

I enjoy writing for a lot of characters, but I have to be able to relate in one aspect otherwise they're never a joy to write for. I can't do the cliche villain, or doing everything for power! Character. It has to be an in-built plausible reason for whatever they're doing. Then it becomes a lot easier to develop their personalities as they meet and greet other characters. :) I enjoy my characters being molded by their surroundings and people around them. It makes them that much more interesting. ^^' Of course, some of their personality is more set in stone, but hey! Anything can happen. :D

Hey Simon, do you intend to leave the classroom or have the Complete respond to his actions?

In reply to The Complete (msg # 155):

When I run in to the problems of writers block I try to place myself in that world. What would I, as I am myself (not my character) do? Its a bit easier for the PC's but as a DM/GM playing the NPC's i try to think how the players actions would make me feel if I was the merchant/mayor/BBEG/whatever. I take my own feelings and twist them a bit to fit the character. Maybe that doesnt make a whole lot of sense to explain.

Roy, for instance, when I have a roadblock is my own actions minus any hesitation or planning. All about the instant gratification.

My feelings don't work usually, I'm the paranoid oh-too-careful type. XD I basically choose stereotypes, adapt them, and set up a character with enough of their own personality that I can develop them through playing as them. When I have writers block, it is more directed towards the action going on than how my character might react; a lack of willingness to write at the moment, more like. And, what would pertain best to the story; allowing natural reaction, or twisting the situation to what I feel is necessary to the story (for instance, Kuron. Consider the possible reasons for his lapse in his usual attitude). You will notice patterns of this "purposeful change," I assure you. And they may not happen at the best or most fun of times, but they are often flashback opportunities or foreshadowing, no matter how unsuccessfully executed they are.

:S Can't we just have an out of time line thread for our characters to interact, or? :s.... like just as a possible suggestion.

I think that was the intention, but somehow it became a thread where anyone could do anything. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely... Apparently it also derails a thread. :3

New proposal. IC thread is set in a Cafe/Park/Common Area setting where the players are considered "Not in class" or its a perpetual weekend or something. Allows interaction but limits the god like powers.

A thought

Was that what it was supposed to be? I usually credit that to out of timeline threads.  >.<

In reply to Roy Unda (msg # 164):

I like.
(Though Cassandra will keep some of her "godlike powers," but that's just about obvious to everyone.)

Goodnight all, I'm sorry I didn't respond everywhere today just... Had an off day. I'll try to post next weekend.

Roy, give me your sexy writing style please. *Mewls.* XD. Really good job on it, though I'm still a little on the edge of how the whole process was done... but eh. I'd have personally preferred a fresh slate. However! This wouldn't get us a fancy-schamncy post like that. But hey. ;)

Edit: Any chance we could have an image for the park? I have my own suggestion, I just like a little bit of visual ^^' Unsure if anyone else is the same, but hey.



 It looks so fannnceeeh. *-* Why can't I have something like this near me, I'd live there.
