Writing the idea down, it’s hard having an idea, knowing how to start, but you don’t have all the tools.

No need for the snarky remark :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

On topic - Writers block is the number one struggle for me

Maybe more friends that could have something going on that the MC or LI is helping with.

The hardest thing about writing is know that 99% of people on here doesn’t know that french fries and salad dressing is the P e R f E c T match and pizza is so gross :nauseated_face:

I’m often afraid if I’m gonna go off-character with my own characters :persevere: for example this person is supposed to be brazen, but they seemed too shy in this dialogue so I had to delete the scene and start it all over again.

The hardest thing for me is to write the first few chapters, especially the very first one. When I finally start writing, I rewrite those episodes dozens of times, just to waste time and to eventually go back to the original version, lol. After the 4th-5th episode writing becomes pretty easy to me, and I just go with the flow.

So yeah, I guess it’s hard for me to actually start a story, even if I have an idea I like. And at the moment it’s even worse, because I’m missing the idea too :smile:

That’s helpful, but vague. How will it stay interesting to readers? How do I break it up into episodes?

There’s so many difficulties when writing I think. I guess for me the hardest part is how to create a certain depth to characters, especially the side ones so they don’t appear just as social backgrounds (especially in romance, because as a reader myself I can’t stand when a story is focused on the MC and LI, and their best friends are just decorations which sometimes give the typical “best friend speech”).
But as it was mentionned earlier, this is a lot linked to fillers. I think fillers are the key to create a captivating story. Somehow what you make out of that space between big events are crucial because its says a lot about how you going to introduce these big events. Some stories even don’t have fillers at all. Sometimes the plot is basically a succession of (un)fortunate events, where it seems that every coincidence brings the MC and LI together.

I can’t do sound and music either… So I don’t. haha

I love coding! But when it comes to making characters- dressing them up :nauseated_face: :nauseated_face: Also I have so many ideas in my head, I end up with like a billion one chaptered stories because of it! :sweat_smile: :skull: (I’m working on my first story, it is legit almost done.) What I did to not lose motivation was, make an entire different account and I forbid myself from pressing New Story and I’m ending up with a fairly good story in my opinion! :innocent:

The first chapter, I’ve rewritten mine about five times before finally settling down with the one I have now

I agree with everything you said.

Same and this is exactly why ended up with 9 main characters :joy: I just don’t like when the friends only role is to just be there.

Keeping inspiration to write more than a couple episodes. I get lots of ideas, and I’ve started so many stories, some of which with a few finished episodes, but after that I usually switch to another story. It’s definitely why I haven’t managed to publish anything, even after being here for multiple years. Hopefully I’ll get there eventually. I’ve been getting better with sticking to stories lately :blob_sun:
