Writing tips! From The Internet!

Post by Trandafir » Fri Sep 08, 2017 10:37 am

This is a spot to share useful videos, blog posts... Anything related to writing that has helped you in any way and may help others.

For starters, here are some Youtube Channels that have helped me and I feel can help a bunch of other people too! Everyone is free to post, avoid Off Topic chattery.

Jenna Morecci: She's a self publishing writer and shares tips and knowledge on a weekly basis. Her content (as most of the ones I've seen) are focused on novels, but many of them can be applied to Roleplaying as well. There are many other cool vids that teach stuff like how to set a scene, when to show, and when to tell, how to write breaking points, plot twists, how to add/remove lenght to your writting (yes!) And much more.

Overly Sarcastic Productions: The series I follow is called Trope Talk. There, she discusses common ground on writing, questions them, explain why they are a trope (for example the rule of 3) and gives lots of examples! This video especifically is my favorite, about reformed villains. 10/10 recommend.

Just Write: This channel is awesome! It analyzes movies, series, pop culture icons that we are in contact with daily and ask the question: What can we learn from them? Not only are the videos good, entertaining and didatic, they also make you learn how to take a second look everytime you come in contact with other fiction.
Hey! Isn't it funny we all want what isn't right?

GM Tips: In this Geek & Sundry series, either Matt Mercer or Satine Phoenix talk about certain things to look out for and ways to improve when designing a D&D world, or while playing in it. I personally love Satine's videos the most since her topics fit so well within the realm of collaborative writing.
