Warning! Unfinished Page

Please don't contribute unfinished pages. We get a lot of these, and almost none of them are EVER finished in a timely manner. Your unfinished page has been deleted. I'd suggest you post unfinished pages on your own computer in a notepad or other text document, or if it isn't your own computer that you're using, to save the text on Pastebin so you can access it later. Posting an unfinished page again will result in a block.


Additionally I would strongly suggest taking it to the writer's workshop as there were quite a few plot issues and mechanical issues (mainly formatting with dialogue and awkward wording). EmpyrealInvective (talk) 22:18, January 26, 2019 (UTC)

Re: Story

You're welcome. Starting with dialogue, the typical format is to space out dialogue so two speakers are never on the same paragraph. Your story was formatted like this: ". "How may I h-help you?" he asked. "What kind of plants do the seeds grow?" I asked him. "Part of the fun is to see,"".

Dialogue is spaced out so there is a new paragraph between each speaker is to improve story flow, prevent misattribution (who's saying what and with what intonation), and generally makes the story easier to follow.

As for making dialogue more natural, I am a fan of reading the story aloud to myself as I'm writing and when I'm done and working on areas that come off as awkward or you stumble on when reading aloud.

As for story ideas themselves, I wouldn't really suggest asking for them as most authors are going to write their own ideas and anything they are willing to share are ideas that they abandoned/don't think work. I will point you to our trope page as it is a good way to avoid a lot of the more overused tropes (shady salesman for example). While this doesn't mean you can't make an idea there work, it does mean that those tropes ended up on those pages because a lot of people were using them and weren't spending a lot of time on making them original.

I hope that helps, if you are looking for more insightful help, I would suggest using the writer's workshop (link above) for your completed story. Best of luck writing. Have a good one. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 22:36, January 26, 2019 (UTC)
