  • Is it normal that I can't read books?

    I really want to read non fiction books to increase my knowledge, especially those dummies books for a layman like me. But I just don't have the patience to read 3-5 hundred pages. Are there any tips for me?

  • Is it possible to sue or have someone change the name of a character in their book?

    As a kid I thought it was funny and cool as an adult I find it disturbing and distasteful but also getting annoyed that it comes up in any search of my name on Google. A distant relative that eventually disowned my family wrote me as a character who is a gold digger that gets murdered. My name is rare and she even... show more
    As a kid I thought it was funny and cool as an adult I find it disturbing and distasteful but also getting annoyed that it comes up in any search of my name on Google. A distant relative that eventually disowned my family wrote me as a character who is a gold digger that gets murdered. My name is rare and she even said she used our names, except I'm the only one who was a God awful character and who gets murdered. I also find it disturbing how she went into detail about the characters sex life. Can I have it removed and her forced to give the character a different name and recall the books or ? Or is there nothing I can do but write about her in a distasteful way so it comes up in the searches for her name and maybe buy a domain in her name so it comes near the top?

  • (Advice/Motivation) I have really bad social anxiety and I need to submit a short story for my writing class?

    Im also a minority in the class, where a lot of the other students know each other and are friends. That adds a pressure to me in general just sitting there being this quiet odd one out.

    Im also a minority in the class, where a lot of the other students know each other and are friends. That adds a pressure to me in general just sitting there being this quiet odd one out. Also everyone in the class so far has written a story with a shock factor to it, going for a dark subject matter writing about criminals on the run, or pedophiles or a woman with a sugar daddy etc. Which is good for them but now I feel need to stick to this trend. Also I have a short story I have already written a draft of, but it takes place in the future and so I made up some random bits of futuristic setting, but Im anxious that those parts are lame and cringey. But also if I don't add those descriptions then I will get critiqued for it. Im just anxious for the whole thing especially being an odd one out in the class already. Does anyone have advice to settle my nerves, or anything to keep in mind for my story?

  • Recommendations for a good fantasy/epic read?

    I’ve never been a huge fan of fantasy but I try to explore different genres just to break up the monotony or at the very least, I try to read what’s popular just to keep up with movies and whatnot.

    I’ve never been a huge fan of fantasy but I try to explore different genres just to break up the monotony or at the very least, I try to read what’s popular just to keep up with movies and whatnot. As a child, I begrudgingly made my way through the Chronicles of Narnia, grinded out The Hobbit amongst other Tolkien works but just didn’t have it in me to sit through Harry Potter by the time it came around. Now in my mid-twenties I gave fantasy another chance and decided to take on the Game of Thrones series this recent summer. I surprisingly loved it. I know some people say GoT isn’t *exactly* fantasy but I think dragons, frozen zombies, and giants count for something right? XD So any recommendations for fantasy/epic reads similiar to that? Please don’t recommend Harry Potter lol not only do I not believe it is in any way similar to GoT (I could be wrong) but similar or not, I’m simply not interested. I don’t really have any preference, as long as the protagonist is not under age 15. I’ve also read a number of other fantasy novels but I’m doing this on my phone and too lazy to type them out haha so feel free to list whatever comes to mind. If I’ve read it, whatever, if I haven’t then I’ll check it out. Much appreciated.

  • Must you finish reading a book even when you find it boring?

    Best answer: Absolutely not, unless it's required for some purpose like school or employment. I have the 50-page rule. If a book cannot trap and hold my attention in 50 pages, I can quit it if I choose to. For gigantic books over 750 pages, I make it my75-page rule. And I've quit a lot of books, since it gives me way... show more

  • What do I write about for my college essay?

    So, I don’t necessarily need specific topic ideas or prompts. I just need any advice that you guys might think is helpful. I am just very stuck with this.

I have only 2 things that I am somewhat comfortable writing about, except they aren’t really good for writing about. I can’t really write about them. I don’t know what to do and I am freaking out, so yeah any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

  • Why don't I feel 'ready' to write certain books?

    Every time I start a novel, I think: 'I'm not ready to write this'. So I start another and think the same. Why do I feel like this?

  • Why didn't somebody just shoot Voldemort?

    I know he can't really die when he's still got the Horcruxes... but really, how's he gonna function if he's riddled with bullet holes?
