Tips for Naming Characters

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in YouTube

As some of you may know, my family and I travel full time around the United States (check us out here: http://livingnomadstyle.com/). Because of this, I can get really busy when we’re moving. Such is the case now. Currently we’re in California, and will be here for a few short days until we move on […]

Writing the Opposite Sex

Writing the Opposite Sex

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in YouTube

Since I’m catching up on all my posts, here’s all about a Writers’ Corner video I released last month: writing the opposite sex. This comes as a challenge to many, often times because we get in our own heads. We make this task harder than it needs to be! Well no longer. Writing the opposite […]

Creepy Characters

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in YouTube

Alright, so my posts have been more sporadic as of late. That has partially been due to the time of the year, and partially due to my workload. Also, partially, because posts got bumped down on my priority list. However, they are high up on that list once again! This week I just posted a […]

As Thanksgiving draws ever nearer (only 3 days to go, whaaaat?), many people are already thinking about turkey, food comas, and whatever sport people watch when they’re too full to stand. As for me? I’m making a Thanksgiving special on Writers’ Corner! Unfortunately, my Thanksgiving special does not include pie, turkey, or food of any […]

Writing Conflict

Halloween has come and gone, and with it all the bouts of obsession with death, horror, and creepiness, our society tends to display during that time. Now we move onto giving thanks, and gorging ourselves with turkey. Before all of that, though, I’ll be releasing a couple videos that don’t have anything to do with […]

Killing Off Characters

This marks the final Writers’ Corner video I’ll be remaking, at least until the inevitable change of my standards causes me to do more. Until that day, however, this is the final Writers’ Corner remake! As such, it’s about one of the most important writing topics ever. Today, the topic is: killing off characters. Yes, […]

Making Characters Suffer

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in YouTube

Alright, so I’ve already covered topics in Writers’ Corner like what if you suck, subplots, etc. This week I’m moving on to making characters suffer. Mwahaha! I mean…this is an incredibly important writing skill that you shouldn’t take any enjoyment in. Yes, that’s it. In all seriousness, though, making characters suffer is actually a very […]

Creating Distinct Character Voices

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in YouTube

This marks the final video I will be making (for the near future anyway) about multiple different perspectives. I’ve already introduced multiple different perspectives, talked about how you decide between them, and covered multiple perspectives in the first person, and third person limited, points of view. This week in Writers’ Corner, I’ll be talking about […]

Growing Pains

Posted on Posted in YouTube

This time in Writer’s Corner , (we’re assuming) your favorite teen writer, Noah Barfield,discusses growing pains; this should be fun. At least, we think so. Mostly because we’ll get to watch people squirm. What does Noah mean when he talks about growing pains? In character development, growing pains is the awkward transitional phase between where […]
