Re: Calling All Writers!

Thanks.

My original plan was to do it as a 75 page script in one go; but I've decided to do a test to see if I'd have an easier time writing it as a full length story, and then translate it into a script. The story is pushing 30 pages, and the script is maybe 20 something--which isn't too shabby for something I've been working on almost full time since last month.

With a few film festivals happening in my area, I condensed part of the first act into a 16 page script, which I hope will get the "Saw" treatment; where James Wan originally filmed Saw as a ten minute short film, and eventually made it into the beast it's known for after gaining more support and interest. Since I plan on staying in the indie scene, I can only hope it gets enough attention from the underground scene so I can get everything off the ground.

Re: Calling All Writers!

I've been toying with a story for almost two years now, about two high school girls falling in love despite their social boundaries and their past bitterness against each other. I really want to write it but I'm not sure how to really end it, the story just kinda goes on and on for me. There's a lot of details I want to include in it (pretty much every main character in the story is LGBT so there's a lot of side plots that I want to add in) but it's so much that it just goes on forever xD I know I will write it someday but it's so hard to start because I can't figure out a good beginning and ending for it

Maybe try writing an outline...just sentences describing certain scenes. A lot of famous authors did stuff like that to help them keep track of the plot of a novel. It can also be altered...heck, you could even make multiple ones to see what version you like best.

Just and idea.

Re: Calling All Writers!

I've been writing loose scenes from several projects lately and I'm considering posting a steamy romance scene from one of them here.

It's a little experimental for me, because it's the only thing I have ever written from the first person perspective, as I normally find the perspective to be restricting.

This story in particular follows a soldier in the army of a fictional country in a fictional world and her experiences with her regiment's captain. The Captain is a strange woman, granted immense strength simply through progeny, who is vicious, bloodthristy and merciless as she revels on the battlefield; and yet she treats the subordinates of her regiment with a lot of care and empathy.

The main character, Kaya, is torn between these two sides of the woman that controls her life.

Sounds like your characters are quite developed. I like the idea of the main character trying to reconcile her feelings about someone so "split" shall I say? It would be interesting to read an excerpt, if you feel comfortable with that!

Characters are my forte. I tend to come up with characters and have their interactions and motivations write the story.

I'll post the scene I'm writing here, but it'd be, um... Rather NSFW.

Re: Calling All Writers!

I love to write. I like to write in a journal about my personal experiences, my daily life, my thoughts on different topics, and other stuff. I like to write lists of stuff. I like to write poetry every now and then. I like to write fiction every now and then. Sometimes, I like to write short essay pieces.

Re: Calling All Writers!

I write a lot of poetry and songs, and most of it is basically what I'm dealing with, but strangely I don't really write about being queer that much. Like I've written about being questioning and confused, but not a lot.

Re: Calling All Writers!

I'm almost done writing that scene I was talking about, but it's longer than I thought it would be. I'm not sure if EC has a character limit, but if it does, I have surely exceeded it.

Re: Calling All Writers!

Alright, I couldn't finish it tonight. It was going well, but then I got to the steamy parts and they always take me so long. I want my erotic writing to be tasteful, so I think about what I write a lot to not make it feel silly or too much. None of that "ooooooh, my pussyyyy~" shit.

Re: Calling All Writers!

I'm still not done, but I'll post the first part. I'm just hoping there won't be any real formatting errors when pasting it.

A bit NSFW, but nothing bad yet.

Re: Calling All Writers!

I'm currently working on a heap of different stories, all of them are some form of science fiction or fantasy, and all of them have at least one LGBT+ character (in one of them all four of the main characters are LGBT+).

Thank you! I'll probably polish it some more when I go through it again.

These both sound really cool! Have you got any plans for putting them on the internet, or getting them published?

Re: Calling All Writers!

The second I don't think is that publishable and I'm writing it mostly for fun. I may post it somewhere, though.

I'm pretty serious about the first one, though. I'm even planning on going on a research trip to London to get a better feel for the people and the city to help me write it better. That one I'm gonna try to publish.

Re: Calling All Writers!

I wrote some poetry recently, but can onley remember one Poem:

Queen of the skys, above and below,
All for naught, for they call me king.

This is my best peice of writing, but i'm planning an epic, about aliens invading an earthlike planet during it's industrial revolution, winning in about 6-12 months, and the experience of the "prince" of one of the kingdoms, who is scretly transgender, and, in the end of the second story arc, escapes the planet at the end of the war aboard the first interstellar spaceship created be humins, and then about the rebellion back on the planet. With the help of some highly advanced ailiens, she makes the rebellion succeede and it continues into intergalactic warfare.

A research trip would be awesome!

Nice poem. Sounds like an intense plot you have going there. Good luck!
