5 Common Story Problems with Simple Fixes

fictionwritingtips:

Our stories are often plagued with these common story problems, but if we don’t know how to fix them, we’ll never improve our writing. It’s important that you remember you don’t need to scrap your novel if you keep having the same issues over and over again. Hopefully this…

If you write just about one type of person, not only is that boring, not only does that deprive people of other points of view, it is also just false. It’s not what the world looks like. You should try to write about the world that’s there, because that’s the interesting one.

Joseph Fink, who’s p good at writing, I think. (from this week’s Philadelphia Weekly)

Yes. This.

DO NOT DISMISS A SOMETHING A CHILD IS PROUD OF. LOOK AT IT. POINT SOMETHING OUT AND TELL THEM YOU LOVE IT. IF A CHILD DRAWS YOU A RAINBOW, TELL THEM YOU LOVE HOW IT HAS RED. THEY WILL THINK “WOW. IT DOES HAVE RED. THEY LOVE HOW I PUT RED IN IT. I PUT RED IN IT. AND THEY NOTICED.” MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD KNOWS YOU ARE PROUD OF THEM.

I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc).

So, any thoughts on Windblade’s difference in internal energon?

Because in virtually every other fiction (ie all the male-coded Cybertronians), it’s purple.

Since Caminus has a hot spot, does that mean the Camiens (who I think are implied to be all-female, I could be wrong?) have a different physiology? Windblade said they evolved from their default Cybertronian nature. 

Just an interesting little thing.

I really do love the headcanon, but I think this has a lot to do with TFP (in which energon is blue and in which I’m relatively sure Sarah Stone has watched. Perhaps there was a discussion with the colorist? Not to mention Maighread Scott wrote for TFP, but that’s the obvious one).

…still going to headcanon though…
