    Too many ideas,too few braincells

    I'm finally getting out of what's probably the worst writer's block I've ever had: haven't written more than two paragraphs at a time for the past ten months, and most of them end up getting deleted anyway. Writing again has been great, but I've also had to deal with a problem I've been avoiding...

    Article about AI as a tool for writing fiction

    In The Verge they've published recently a long article about an AI-based fiction writing tool. The Great Fiction of AI. The strange world of high-speed semi-automated genre fiction. It's an interesting piece, where they talk about why some authors may require the use of such software, or the...

    Faster More Accurate Writing With Text Expansion Software

    I created a plethora of clever names and references for my story. Didn't invent a new language, but I did give people, places, things, deities and events non-english names. Not so clever as I thought. I can't always remember how to spell said names correctly. Though I can usually remember the...

    A syntactics issue

    Hey guys! this may not be the right corner of this forum to open this thread (mods, feel free to move it to the appropriate spot, or let me know) Here is the thing. My editor and I got stuck for a bit on a small passage in my book, trying to choose the appropriate verb-tense. Here is the...

    Does anyone else daydream?

    These have been the main inspiration for my writing. When I was a kid I was a maladaptive daydreamer, which has lessened since I became an adult and my life became more stable. But these intense daydreams are the inspiration of my works. I was wondering if anyone else has done this?

    Good morning from the east coast

    Hello! I am a very introverted person and thus to be social I have turned to online services. I debated writing everything in poem-form but since I am not familiar with any of you yet, I'll refrain for now. I self publish and have done so with seven books (my first series) and am currently...

    What makes good dialogue?

    I come from a family of book-lovers and artists, so I've pretty much been reading my entire life, and I've been writing for almost just as long. I've had a lot of people tell me that how I write characters interacting is really good, and not to toot my own horn here but I'm pretty proud of some...

    Just a short story that needs working on and perhaps some improvement. It contains a lot of sci-fi/philosophical themes, which help establish a kind of allegorical nuance. The story also ventures into metaphysical realms of individual experience. Link to story: The Superland Enigma Synopsis...

    Good Ways to Keep Everything Organized?

    I tend to be a pretty sporadic writer. I’ll start to write the backstory of a character, and it leads to me writing dialogue with a different character. I try to do world building, but I can never keep track of what everything is or where all the pieces go. I also like to draw out certain...
