Writing exercises

Hey, all. I'm Dave and I've been dabbling in the world of creative writing for a while with colossal lack of success. I find my biggest problem is I have so many ideas that when I'm at most a couple of chapters into a story, I come up with something completely different, get started on that and never come back to the previous story. What's even worse is when I come back to re-read what I'd already written, I think that's terrible and delete it. I do however have infinite fun doing the little…See More

"So do you guys reckon that a writer is better to just dump his / her brain on the page and then come back to polish up later or to plan out your story and work out your chapters from there?"

Dave, top of the milky way to you,  and welcome to authors.com  …from The Chuck-master of Science Fiction Fantasy and fun…
        I write sci-fi fantasy novels filled with adventure, mystery, romance, drama, horror, and plenty of comedy… Sci-fi for every adult human to enjoy. I'm also a well-known published poet. When you have a few free moments to spare, please check out my Authors page and a few of my videos and blogs I have recently added. Many of my blogs consist of free to read enjoyable sci-fi stories that I reedited and united these twenty-two stories within an eBook titled: 'Epic Marvels'. One of my recent sci-fi novels is titled: 'They!', which is somewhat related to the 1954 sci-fi classic movie, 'Them!' I've just completed my next sci-fi mystery, titled: 'The Mysteries of Fuller Park'. A fun story based on the eerie satanic urban legends of Fuller Park, Athens, Texas. My next novel title is: 'It's Not A Lovable Pet Story!' LOL... It sure isn't another lovable pet story. Its Sci-fi horror at its best for delighting my many thousands of reading fans. Also, check out my famous 'Apollo Trilogy Novels'… Thanks…

Please let me know if you'd like to become friends.

The Chuck!

Dave,

Writing isn't an easy task, and most likely every writer has suffered what seems like a dead end, but there are no dead ends until the story ends. The writer needs to dip deeper into their imagination and write whatever comes to mind, no matter how strange it may be. Fantasy is fun because strange generally rules the story. Imagine yourself as being each of your main characters, step into their  fictional lives, and experience their emotions. Guide them in the direction their going. I believe this will help you to continue on with your story.

The Chuck!

Do people put chapters up on this site for review or do writers generally keep thier stuff to themselves until it's finished?

No, they generally do not do that. I usually keep my characters to myself, keeping in mind my future readers will meet my characters and become involved in their lives. No mater if the characters are human or alien, female or male, good or evil, I want the reader to fully accept them and want to continue reading my story.

Right now, trying to actually publish a novel is like hitting a state lottery three times in a row. You need to self publish your work as eNovels, because they are rapidly replacing paper books. Soon paper books will be a thing of the past, like music cassette tapes.

The Chuck!
