I Have No Idea Of What I Am Doing

That Was A Thought

I have some emotionally riddled outbursts at time, which I usually regret later. Then I do it again later down the line


Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.
- Erica Jong

The highest courage is to dare to appear to be what one is.
- John Lancaster Spalding

Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Before you embark on any path ask the question, does this path have a heart? If the answer is no, you will know it and then you must choose another path. The trouble is that nobody asks the question. And when a man finally realizes that he has taken a path without a heart the path is ready to kill him.
- Carlos Castaneda

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven? And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
- Kahlil Gibran

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
- Dale Carnegie



my favorite thing in stories is when the antagonist doesn’t die, but instead they realize they were being kind of a stupid dick (maybe because the protagonist saved them or something) and then they have to kind of awkwardly tag along with the heroes in order to make up for their mistakes and gradually become slightly less evil

If you don’t know what atmosphere is, you might have a hard time deciding how you want your own story to feel. Creating atmosphere is important and it can set the tone of your story. If you feel like your writing has been lacking something, you should begin to think about the feel of the WIP you’ve been working on. Your readers must feel something if you want them to become interested in your writing. They must connect with the atmosphere you’re trying to create.

But what is atmosphere? 

Atmosphere and mood are closely related and they are achieved by using all five senses.

Your readers must feel like they’re right in the middle of your story. Before you even begin to write, you should decide what you want the mood or atmosphere of your story to be. Are you trying to create fear? Happiness? Confusion? Decide how you want you readers to feel when they’re reading your story, even if it feels like you might not have much control over that. You do.

The best way to create realistic atmosphere is to stay observant. 

When you’re in a situation where you’re feeling scared or fearful, try to take note of why that is. Did you just watch something on TV that scared you? Is it dark out? Is it cold? Is it foggy outside? These things all add up to create atmosphere and you’ll give your readers a realistic experience.

Atmosphere is mostly about understanding your characters and being able to put yourself in their shoes. 

You need to know how your characters feel and what emotions you’re going to evoke in them. The same feelings need to be pulled out of your readers, so that they understand as well. If you’re able to do this, your readers will be able to have a relationship with your characters.
