I want to Write a Book but have no IdeasI' d like to write a book, but I have no ideas.
If you like to write but don't have any idea, what do you do?
Use a very general, very straightforward, totally banal and banal topic - something totally original - and try to spell it as well as possible.... no, not even the best, just appropriate, right. Your changes will cause mistakes eventually; noncharacter-behavior, time-dependencies will break, foes behaving like fools, exposure to unbelief, things that come out more easily than they normally occur in your lifetime, small inconsistencies. What do you mean?
So my Romeo creeps through the garden to his Julia and then sees her. She' s completely atypical, much too sexual agressive, dominating, upmarket. A whole élite of safety forces guards the parks. The atypical, sexily agressive Julia is not Julia at all. In the past, our hero had an incident with some inconspicuous, powerful antagonists.
So, let's adjust to the facts, choose a sexual aggression, mighty foe. Tradition has it that a successive cube daemon matches, let us run with it and consolidate the inconspicuous foes into daemons, with the successive cube as their chief. So can we get through the whole thing without the original Julia? Faced with these prerequisites, these circumstances, this dispute, let us take sides in combat, take sides in combat, beat the others where it stings, look for inner strength, where it counts, lose and find belief - we have the big picture of the game.
Great desire to compose, but not at all any idea?
I' ve been working on this riddle for quite some while. It' +'- but I have this exceptional desire to compose this great epoxy tale, but I can't think of anything vital when I sat down to work. I' m sure that's a very frequent problem among others, but I've been struggling with it for far too long and I just don't remember.
It' melancholy part is that I was said that I am a good author, I know that I am a good author and it was the only thing I could ever do successfully in this world. Still, it's such a horrible thing every single try. I' ll acknowledge that I have an ideas that won't let me down, but the whole thing is so full of exaggerated clichés and torn off elements that I can't get myself to research them on film.
It' like my brain's mocking me. This is a widespread problem, but I'm not sure about the seriousness. I found out that if the only idea that comes is evil, it will help to get them on the site. You can optimize, revise, rewrite until you have something to be proud of.
Best thing I ever wrote began as a derived dunghill. How did you come up with that? Typically, when I hear, look or reread something "creative", I get dozens of narrative notions. If I don't see and enjoy anything "creative" like OnTube, most TVs, most films, newspapers, non-fiction, my head gets gummed and I can't get any inspirational notions.
Why don't you just tell your tale of clichés? It sounds like you're spending more of your life wondering what to think about than just making this thing less clichéd. I' m making a tale that should be covered in clichés, but it's not.
Don't Fear Failure. I' m gonna be on fire, do you want to be on fire? So if you don't have a tale to tell, why do you want to do it? I can see that you are locked up at the writer plane - you have this big brainwave in your mind, but it doesn't seem the way you want it to, or you're trapped at a certain point or something.
But on the ideas side? That' usually what's wrong with me when I feel like this. I know someone who deals with automated typing, I myself have a tendency to write semi-automatically. I also tended to make the live narrative quiz air/random quiz gen. group. Let an unfamiliar storyteller ask the protagonist something about himself.
Where do the notions come from? In some cases, a "what if" becomes "wouldn't it be great if" or "I've never seen that before". Once you know what happened, it's much simpler to see the notion that hasn't been tried yet. Then we have the magpie moment.
We should be writing and gathering excerpts of gleaming things. A notion. Transfer one notion to another. It will look a little like Frankenstein's monsters at this point - replacements of limbs and limbs that don't quite mate. I' m happy you asked. You' ve seen this with your one notion that... well, not working, stupid, done, banal.
" Every concept can be made to work if you show enough fantasy and resolve. Grab your ideas and turn them upside down. âª tre et faire circuler cette idée jusqu'à ce qu'elle soit tout froissée, excitante et funkie. I' m an abettor! I' ve been working on this riddle for quite some while.
It' +'- but I have this exceptional desire to compose this grandiose epoxy tale, but I can't think of anything vital when I sat down to work. I' m sure that's a very frequent problem among others, but I've been struggling with it for far too long and I just don't remember.

It' like my mind is mocking me. This is a widespread problem, but I'm not sure about the seriousness. When I' m jammed, I like to do twisted things in my mind with thoughts. So I take an ideeee and think: "HOW could I make it so strange that it surprised them?
" That' actually my FAVORITE way of coming up with stories. It is my pleasure to shake and shake the reader with my own thoughts, which then take a kind of break..... So let's say your brainchild is a 15 year old kid who is learning about his magic power and going to a school/camp/etc where he can get to know more about it.
Where can I make this clichéd concept surfprise guys? How about if he goes to the Academy of Magickers and it turns out it's actually a rising fraudsters' college from which the CIA and the much the same are recruiting? Perhaps the Heroin isn't part of the anti-government group (the kid in the district, the divergent), but one starts with something like a harvest, where the main character is so anxious that she is ill, and when her name is shouted.... she is excited that she was selected to be a part of the dictatorship.
Just keep your mouth closed and keep writing. Authors are the ones who are writing. You don't want to type, you're not a novelist and you should get another work. It doesn't make any difference what you are writing, if it is good, if it is public or if you can just reread it. They know how to spell (you have written an article here.....).
I have to say, I'm going through the same thing right now. I' ve just been compelled to end a tale I've been working on for about four years, but I've put it on hold for a year because I'm still having a bad fit of writer's-blocks.
But now that the one thing I've been working on is done, I still have the drive to start thinking, but my ideas have long since run dry. A few month ago I had an invention that I researched but never really made it. And I think what I crave -" +" - and what you might also crave -" +" - is the period when it has been simpler to work with.
I was able to compose two short story lines years ago without much effort. Then I could have some other thoughts that I wanted to talk about later. Unnecessarily to say that it's not as simple for me anymore, and I don't anticipate that it will be the way we as human beings are always evolving.
This is something I'm still trying to figure out and get past me, but it wasn't simple. You may force yourself to keep it out, as already proposed, and putting the concept on board, even if it is not flawless, will help. It' difficult to get away from the notion that everything is just fine the first try.
Seems preposterous to say something that could be perceived as garbage, and also to think that it should not be so. I' m sure there are some things you can do, even if it takes a pause from everything to give you some perspectives and maybe give you a pause from the strenuous job of just reminiscent.
In my group we have this challange named "Daily Plot Bunnies". For a certain amount of timeframe every single working Sunday (the shorter was 7 working nights, the longest 20 and the "sweet spot" is about 14) you come up with a new plot novel. There just have to be a few sentences - whatever you would have written down if you suddenly had a great thought and wanted to come back to it later and work seriously on it.
Come up with a new concept every single workingday, and put it down on paper. Thoughts can be as long as you like, from flashy fictions to multi-book epics. If a suggestion is banked\ (published in the threads we have created for this purpose), you can't handle it until the task is finished.
It' probably still heavier than it looks, even if you think it looks heavy. You' re ending up with a bunch of dull, clichéd notions that you can't believe your mind has been made. nThe wierd thing is that once you launch all the sluggish clichéd plans you can think of, you still have half the challange to go so you have to dig deeper and really work the creative muscles. There are many ways to do this.
That'?s why it's so difficult. Authors sometimes speak about how they can come up with a hundred new notions without taking breaths, but..... It' s quite good to kill every WIP I put down here, but I can handle reviving my blogs. Begin by saying the most horrible thing that ever occurred to you.
You' re a novelist. I' m in the same thing. I' ve had several ventures I've been working on for years, but I just can't get it over with. Well, I think the major issue is that I have to stop my fiction first and then move on to my other stuff, even though I've been working on it.
When you want prompt, "Writing Down the Bones" has some good ones. Begin by saying the most horrible thing that ever occurred to you. You' re a novelist. Although I think the story base connection didn't work, the whole thing was great. You can' t just type about all those things you have.
Enter a descriptive text for the room you are in. Writin' shit. I am an abstracted painter, whom I have been drawing for 6 years now. I think abstraction is very similar to typing. You' re gonna have to do the work physical and you' re gonna find your way. At the end I know I will have a great work of work.
I don't scribble much, but I know if I keep going, I'll get there. Every day, I don't give a shit what it is. Here there are many good things to do. Stop making a "great apic story".
Simply type without any size expectation. I' ve got an idea that comes from ying-yang. It'?s hard to put on the record. I think you have such an impulse to do something that turns that impulse into pushing to do something great. You' ve got to let go of that fear and just type something.
And, frankly, even if the only thing you get is a cliché feel, you still need to do some planning. You' ll find out as you type that the plot becomes more and more inventive. This may be a cliché, but every little departure from the cliché makes your new storyline all the more unique until it no longer comes near the cliché seeds with which it all began.
Any good tale I've ever seen begins with one or two or three characters that interact in a situations where things don't go well and none of them know how to use it. Even Saint Tolkien didn't think that he worked out his whole epos before he began to write it.
I know very well, from his editorial story, that C.S. Lewis hadn't thought through the whole range of Narnia before he written The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Ursula LeGuin also did not fully understand the Earthsea myth; she drew up a triology and then found reasons to extend to two or three more stories.
And, as JAR said, stop worrying about things. Take part in writing a scene. Imagine what you have to say and say it. What should the state of the earth be, how should humans act, what would you have done in position E? Select some of your strong views and observation and create an action around them; in the universe or in imaginary countries or in stompunkia or in today-' +'- all according to your moods and styleclecustom.
The important thing is that you have something to say. Organize your fundamental beliefs and beliefs, your I\'ll-show-you-alls and come-the-revolutions, but then, instead of trying to make a ritual or grassroots politics move around them, build an action, with scenes and signs that illuminate your beliefs and beliefs, in thrilling and style.
I am never related to all those who say they have more thoughts than they know what to do. The thing is.... I seldom get an idea unless I am a writer with the aim of getting an idea. So I choose to choose a style and then I choose to record everything I can think of.
I can usually come up with an ideal after a few lessons. I have to work very hard. Thoughts don't just come to me while I spend my days. There seemed to be so many folks with all these thoughts, and I.... not. A lot of authors are confused by those who don't have more thoughts than they might need.
However, the above works well for me, and the benefit is that I can't distract my new thoughts because I don't have any. Many beautiful ledgers don't have great inventive notions. I would probably just make a few random decisions in the OR environment to make two different personalities (some kind of MadLib thing to find their name, profession, etc.) and then let them talk to each other.
Great desire to compose, but not at all any idea? It' s hard to tell, but I have this exceptional desire to compose this great epoxy tale - but it comes to me completely nothing when I do. I' m sure this is a very frequent problem among others, but I've been fighting for too long and just don't remember.
It' a good author, I know I am a good author, and it really was the only thing I could ever do successfully in my time. Admittedly, I have an notion that doesn't want to abandon me, but the whole thing is so full of exaggerated clichés and torn off elements that I can't get myself to research them on film.
This is a widespread problem, but I'm not sure how serious it is.
