#389015 In the big jumble of creative mind soup...

Posted by Pterodactyl on 12 October 2012 - 01:51 AM

I want to start writing longer fiction. I've written 10,000 word stories, which I usually get writing to at about 1 to 3 in the morning when I have time. I take notes whenever I can on my iPod if I have an idea, but I just run out of stuff to write. I don't need advice on fleshing out ideas; I've got a lot of those kept up in my noggin; I want to flesh out my writing itself in a non redundant way. Any advice?

And Taco, I really like the idea about the NR Zrillak. It just seems like it'd be a great read, somewhat melancholic and reflective. Having him go through important memories of his life would be amazing. If you need anyone to sample reading, I'd love to get my eyes on that. Send me a PM sometime.

There's an astounding lack of Bond here. What's it he said in Octopussy? It was Roger Moore, but still.

Magda: “He suggests a trade. The egg for your life.”
Bond: “Well, I heard the price of eggs was up, but isn’t that a little high?”

This is something I'm proud to say I was somehow involved in by acquaintance. They'll write ballads of us one day, the nerds who made a role play come to the screen.

When I saw the name of the person who put this up, I should have left it at that.

On seeing the title I immediately thought of Ryoma's Haken from Rise.

On the other hand, these aren't that bad! Keep up the decent work, it'll come to you eventually.

Please. Never, ever say that again. I will now proceed to attempt to mindwipe myself or instead bleach my eyes.

Doesn't this kinda fall in line with the Favorite Books topic? Just sayin'.

Agreed.

THIS IS A FANTASY WORLD. WHY THE HECK ARE YOU USING REAL LANGUAGES TO BASE THE NAME OF A CITY UPON?
...
Seriously, though, not everything needs some cool Latin base word or some Greek pronoun. I find that when you make a name that is cool, it also has to be simple. No one wants to figure out the pronunciation of Dhyrtmghsisstryisumbadob. Chill with something easy and simple, like Cortrik. Obvious, easy pronunciation, like most of Lord of the Rings. If Gimli's name had been Jarabgbvszvy, do you think he would've been such a simple character? Far too much fantasy these days wants to make their names unique and pronounceable only if you read the Spanish dictionary front to back. So, Coronar or something else short, sweet and similar would work well.

Who doesn't like the Roman Empire? :P

... Those who prefer the Greeks.

Same thing as you guys, I started looking at the Halo, before going to the Refuge section.
