artiestroke posted a topic in Creator's CornerSo one of my character’s magical quirks is being blessed with supernatural good fortune- but I fear straying too close to just writing her into Deus ex Machina after Deus ex Machina. For example- the opening scene that both features this ability and gets the party together involves her being chased into a broken down transportation hub by anti-magic raiders at just the right moment that our Main Protagonist is fiddling with a transportation hub near her own hometown, activating it and starting the plot. Is there a way to write Luck that doesn’t feel contrived?
Just though I'd share some inspirational words from newly published author Dalinar Kholin on the art of writing - The most important word a person can write. It's not the first one, is it ? It's the next one. Always the next one.
I was wondering is there any rules regarding formatting when writing that a true amateur should know/follow? I feel like the way my writing looks is off. How do I represent dialogue etc etc? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
