Writing Problems

When in doubt, suck.

artistinthetardis413 asked:

Any advice about writing characters not in your age range? (In my case, being a teenager, writing a married couple in their late twenties-early thirties) I know I'm writing a fantasy novel, but I want their personalities to be realistic.

Research is your friend. Read for dummies books and blogs about early marriage. You know those dumb buzzfeed advice posts? They can actually come in handy. Ask your friends/parents/family friends. Read realistic fiction with folks in that age range. Ask yourself what you see yourself being in 10-20 years. Hope this helps! 

Disclaimer: This is what works for ME. I rely heavily on researching, but some people do better in talking to their friends.

Writing for so long your arm gets a cramp, and you seriously consider writing with your other hand because it’s so uncomfortable.

None of your friends understand the huge difference putting a period instead of a comma can make.
