I finally also made a cover for myself. :). More covers below!
I am working on trying to update this blog whenever I can. I still am really in need of people to submit questions to “Ask Jelsa”! I only have one response I can give to you guys, and I would really like the opportunity to give out more advice!
I’m one of those people who is participating in NaNoWriMo. If you would like me to add you, feel free to comment in the comment box giving me your username.
I’m not editing my own stuff very much right now. In case any of you guys care. I’m just trying to power through NaNo and see what happens.
Anyway, love you all, thanks for listening to me ramble!
Okay, this one is weird and I literally thought of it two seconds ago, but give it a shot. True writers don’t care if people think they’re crazy, right?
Most projects will have at least one main character. Go to your room. Make sure no one is around and will interrupt you. Then ask your character why he/she is being so frustrating. You might have some interesting conversations, learn something about him/her you didn’t know before, or at the very least, distract yourself from all your earlier stress.
Here’s how some of my typical convos with my characters go.
Jelsa: Okay, Trey. What’s your deal?
Trey: What’s my deal? What’s your deal?
Jelsa: *sighs* You know what I mean. Why is your story so hard to write?
Trey: Well, it’s your own fault.
Jelsa: Well! Thanks for reminding me!
Trey: *smirks* You’re welcome.
Jelsa: You’re weird.
Trey: You made me that way.
Jelsa: Oh yeah, I did do that.
Jelsa: You’re confusing me.
Trey: That was my goal.
Jelsa: Okay. Now I’m mad at you. *picks up pencil*
Trey: What are you doing…?
Jelsa: You’ll see!
Writer’s block solved. Sort of. I was having some trouble with his story, to be perfectly honest, so that was a fun conversation to have. You don’t have to say it out loud if you don’t want to; writing down the conversation is perfectly fine too. But make sure it’s recorded somewhere where you can listen/see it again, because you never know. You might say interesting things to each other and want to relive the memories.
Hope that helps? Heh.
