Question: I have started writing a story,can you give me some advice ?
I am posting this again:).I just wanted to correct some mistakes,and change this a little bit.
I have decided to name the story : The Black Cat.
It's about Julie,a seventeen year old girl who discovers that has cat like powers. She will meet David,a guy who has the same powers [he is going to be her boyfriend] and Thomas,another "Catman" :)) . They will try to find Julie's lost brother,Malcolm.What do you think about this? Unfortunately,I can't decide how Julie will transform and have these powers. I have some ideas,but I don't think they're really good.When Julie finds Malcolm,she discovers Malcolm's secret.
So,can you give me some good advice? And also,some ideas? :3
You mean there were more mistakes before!
Your Grammar is worst than mine! Please, please don't be a writer until you at least learn how to use a comma, capital letters and full stops and Paragrahphs...actually just get a Grammar book. Simple things like a space after a comma my 4 year old sister can do that. We have so many bad writers don't be another!
Um, I read this earlier and David was called Edward which was a big mistake and it's good to see you took Yasmin's advice she does know what she's talking about and has helped me countless times. Your idea is better but you Grammar is not!
I think it would be a nice short-story but there's not enough material for a novel. You haven't given us a Theme so it's hard to give you ideas because they might not work. Your Synopsis isn't very good and it really sketchy. Learn to write a Synopsis with a beginning, middle and end and to add in the points of important action in each Act of the book. Also try yo add in more about the characters their goal, conflict, add and little mini goals throughout the novel that moves the character closer to their goal. I think if you worked more on the idea and planned you'd find it easier to write. At the moment there's not much to work with.
Do some work on Theme and Symbolism and I love to add this into books it makes it more interesting
What POV you'll use
Characters and character profile
If you learn to plan it'll make your writing better, help you avoid writers block and you can see plot holes. Ypud don't have enough to make 75,000 to 80,000 words which is what a novel needs to be accepted for Publishing (I heard that at a conference as I am interested in Publishing, you didn't say if you was or not)
Your idea is a bit childish and not something I would read, sorry. But I hope I helped a bit
Best advice I can give you, and I can't remember where I read this but: 'Don't get it right, get it writ.'
The best (and most fun) way you're going to sort out any problems you have with your story is just to start writing. Start at the beginning and go on until you get stuck, then switch to a different bit you've already worked out. Later on you can go back and rewrite and you can work out how to link all your disjointed bits of narrative.
The actual process of putting fingers to keys or pen to paper is the most helpful aid to writing.
