What You Do With a B.A. in B.S.



Professional fangirl. People also occasionally pay me to help them capture souls on film (or write scenarios in which souls are captured on film. You know, livin' the dream).

Creative writing (and linguistics, poor redheaded stepchild of a degree) graduate figuring out life, love and the big city (...well, mostly just the first).

Oh my has the list grown: Johnlockian, Stridersexual, religious subscriber to science boyfriends, Avengerverse, MCU, Clint/Coulson, Suits and Marvey. As per usual, buckets of crazy. On this blog you will find fandoms, opinions, writings and fandoms. Welcome!

But imagine Steve Rogers ferociously defending women who get harassed on the streets. Steve going super red when Darcy tells him about all the shit she faces. Steve publicly denouncing MRA’s and most republicans for making life harder for women and especially getting pissed when governors go on tv and talk about how poor people should just stop being poor because he’s BEEN THERE and he knows how hard it is to function day to day, much less deal with the people running your country telling you you’re a drain on society. Steve Rogers doesn’t like bullies, right, no matter where they’re from.

Short stories are designed to deliver their impact in as few pages as possible. A tremendous amount is left out, and a good short story writer learns to include only the most essential information.

Crafting a Strong Character Voice || Part 5

Exercise 1 –
Take the above photo. Describe it with your own style and your own literary flair. Bring the scene to life. Give it its own characterization. Capture a moment.

Exercise 2 –
Now, describe the scene from the eyes of one of your characters. Don’t be afraid to borrow those moments of gold you write in exercise 1, but make sure to stay absolutely true and honest to the voice of the character.

Bonus –
Describe the scene from the eyes of the protagonist.

Goal –
A big part of what makes a story stand out is character voice. Your own personal style changes as you do, and a character’s voice changes as the character does. When the two come together, there’s potential for literary magic, but bringing out and differentiating between different character voices takes lots of practice and even more reading.

Write for yourself, but also take time to write with the intention of improving skills. There’s reading for pleasure, and then there’s reading like a writer. The same applies to writing: write for pleasure, then write to improve. Experiment in these exercises. Try things you haven’t tried before.

Remember, the image is meant to generate ideas, so it’s intentionally vague. If you’re not used to writing about the subjects in the image, good. Write something you’ve never written before. Push yourself.

Need some help? Check out the guide on character voice, or look at the Voice & Style Summer Camp exercises for additional tips!
