  1. Always prefer writing with female characters in mind. . This conversation has gotten me interested. My protagonist is female, (perfect for my first novel and I am writing in first person ). But, I think I am trying to create too many characters. I am trying to work with two male characters that both have pretty major roles and I am having so much trouble with one, though he was supposed to fall in love with my protagonist. But, I could switch them around, I am still planning. The second male character I can see him relatively clearly. The former, I have been trying to discover his motivations, but with little success. Maybe I should just stick with the one? Appoint a more secondary role to the other? I would love to hear your opinions. Maybe I should put this in a new conversation... Wow, writing this all out to everyone here is actually clearing my mind so thank you.
  2. Working through the Snowflake Method! Only on step 3; I do like it.
  3. Thank you EBraten! I read over this method as well and I like how its structure progresses. I will give it a try.
  4. Thank you, Zee! All that you provided is a great help :). I do have my main character and her best friend in development right now. I will keep that in mind as well, PenName. :). I know I am not one to plan everything. ":
  5. I would appreciate some suggestions on how I might begin outlining/planing my first novel please. I am terrible at organization though I am very meticulous. I know there are some good writing programs out there, but I just starting out. I do have notes on a few of the characters and plot;the prologue is complete for now and a page that introduces two of the characters, but that is about the extent of it. I have written a few very short stories, so I am on a completely new path now. When I posted my prologue long ago, so many of you said I had a good start! Thank you so much for that! Thank you for any help you can give me.
  6. No, just a long term substitute aide at the moment.
  7. All there is for me is to write for the next five weeks with my school district closed! I have no excuse now lol. Hopefully, a lot of sharing will be forthcoming.
  8. Yes for me as well, but my church is having online services. I do not know about next week, though I am guessing not. With schools also closed, I have no reason not to write! Indeed, if I do not boredom will ensue. I hope to share progress that is promising.
  9. Thank you, Zee and thank you everyone. I am glad to be here again!
  10. Hello again everyone, I know I have been away for quite awhile. I feel the need to reconnect with everyone here and become involved in this community of Christian writers again. My novel is progressing very slowly for those of you who remember that I am working on a historical fantasy novel based on the Irish legend of the selkies. I do hope to improve in this endeavor. I also hope that I can help some of you as well. I would be very glad to, though i do not have professional experience.
  11. I am partly Irish. Besides that, I love Medieval history and literature. My name is Brittany.
  12. Haha. It is never to late to say hi ? thank you! Glad to meet you! I have you to thank largely for a good community reputation on my profile. ?
  13. It is true that this being my first novel, I would like to make sure my writing is as perfect as I can make it. And the prologue is not too long
  14. I have finished my prologue, quite nervous about putting it in the Critique section. Should i wait until it is more refined, or wait a little longer, until I have more?
  15. I cannot access the rules to the Critique and Feedback Forum. Are there any other rules other than responding to two other pieces that members have written?
