JENNIFER LYNN ALVAREZ'S
So I thought this could be a post where we all share our writing tips with each other.
I totally agree with @Wispiflower and @Echoheart (Echomoon)
Tip: Write and read everyday.
Every day I set an alarm to write for 15 minutes and either add on to an existing story or start a new one. I almost never have an outline, I just get an idea and run with it. Sure, I could read it later, cringe, laugh, and change it, but the idea, the plot, is there. It's fun (generally XD), it relaxes me, and I'm training myself.
When you read, you subconsciously memorize spelling, sentence structures, and basic rules for writing. You pick up the elements of a story without thinking about it. Reading others' work strengthens your own writing.
NOTE: Writing and reading everyday helps with writer's block. Whenever I'm stuck, I flounder. Reading can not only give you ideas, it can improve your mood. Writing anything also increases your creativity and focus levels.
Hope this helps!
@Rainleaf (Desert Herd) @Cinderfrost (Sunblaze) Holy moly y’all this chain is so loooong XD (But BEAUTIFUL)
(@Wispiflower WISPI!!! OH MY GOODNESS HIIII
Lol, yeah all things KotLC are long but beautiful 😉)
@Rainleaf (Desert Herd) Too true, too true XD <3
I have a new tip...
Don’t be lazy. Write even if it’s trash. You can fix it later XD
My English teacher needs to outline everything before he writes. People function in odd ways lol.
I have new advice: Just write. it doesn’t have to be all day, but every day. Write even when you don’t want to. Practice makes perfect, so WRITE!
R.L. Stine said this: ”Think about it like this: when you write, you are a writer!”

I say read different kinds of books, draw scenes that have happened past, present, or future. i get my most inspiration, reading, being outside, and doodling. depending what you're writing about, if its takes place in a forest, spend rime outside, and notice the different colors. since i'm writing a book on dragons i'm reading dragon books, mythology books, and so on.
XD this was helpfull to me! But i guess i have a tip: (not that great tip) i once tried to just “force” writing, i get very bored easily so i cant sit still! It helps to do little parts at a time for me(: hope that was helpfull
why does it matter either way? as in why would it be harder on paper?
Thanks Flamefrost! I’ve been trying to do the painting pictures with words thing for a while, but when you are writing your fanfic on paper, it’s a little hard.
I’m so inexperienced I don’t have tips lol. I’m only really good at art.
Because she talked about Brackentail insisting on being in the story even though she didn't want him in it. You're advice about listening to your characters reminded me of that.
