Creating plots with the zigzag method

19. Januar 2017 Schreiben lernen

1000storyideas: I’ve learned this method years ago and I’ve been using it ever since. The zigzag plot creator starts like this:  An crescent zigzag.  You can have as many up and downs as you want.

Every up isWeiterlesen

adrielthefallen: girl-with-sandshoes: clementive: Ok. I’m tired of the typical vampire, werewolf and fairy.I’m also tired of the occidental-centrism in mythology.

geographical vocabulary

6. Oktober 2016 Orte, Schreiben lernen

octoswan: I made these as a way to compile all the geographical vocabulary that I thought was useful and interesting for writers. Some descriptors share categories, and some are simplified, but for the most part everything is in its proper place. Not all the words are as useable as others, and some might take tricky wording to pull off, but I hope these prove useful to all you writers out there! (save the images to zoom in on the pics)
