What’s your process?
Do you think it’s effective/beneficial?
ME: I usually listen to music to try and zone out and let my mind wonder and it feels relaxing. I’ve noticed it takes alot of free time for me to warm up to writing. Not a fan of this :unamused:

3rd person for some stuff, I struggle with 2nd person even though it can be interesting :smirk:

Forgot to add! A new method of writing that I’ve tried is writing backwards.
Write the ending of your story then work your way back to the beginning. This was helpful for my current story!

Ooh, reminds me. I have a story on episode I’m in the middle and a story on Wattpad I’ve started planning and writing

Help on managing both?

2 Likes

Both 1st and 3rd person

3rd person for writing actual stories (like on paper sometimes, and mostly online novels), but 1st person for episode stories to get the “visual” aspect of it

Want someone to help you reach some goals or asking about how to keep the stories organized to write more effectively?

Keeping the stories organized.

If I’m just getting started or unsure about a story, I use notepads.
That’s usually for free writing, character names, and major plot points, rough drafts.
For the ones I’m sure about, I have a notebook for each one with post-it tabs to separate certain things. I write down confirmed character names and their connections with each other. If it’s Episode I also write down possible games and choices that can connect with the plots.
But https://www.notebook.ai is really helpful too.

What do you do? :nerd_face:

The 3 notepads are maybes/rough drafts.
The 7 notebooks are confirmed stories. :unamused: AKA I hate myself…

Oh me? I should be writing notes, but I don’t know where to write them without forgetting about them. Sometimes I lose motivation to write because of this…

Oooh okay. So do you free write online and just go with what pops in your head?

Most of the time I have a set plot or idea, some characters and just build off from there.

I’m too forgetful to do that :weary: I need a guide for all my characters or else I’ll forget who they are and their purpose :smirk: It is kinda annoying sometimes because I feel like it’s taking away from writing time :confused:
So have you tried notebook.ai?! You can have multiple stories/universes saved there and they even have detailed questions for characters if they need a little more depth or tuning :slight_smile:

I have tried notebook.ai! Is it possible to have more than one story on there?
