Dream casting

Whenever I'm working on a new story, I like to "cast" the roles of the characters so I can imagine more accurately what they look like. For my new story called tentatively, "Black and White", I have cast these people so far. (And feel free to share your own thoughts on dream casting in the comments!)





My goal for this week

My goal for this week is to write at least 500 words a day. So by the end of the week, I should have 3,500 words at least. Help me stick to that.

Wannabe Writers #1

Wannabe Writers is a weekly meme. It's a writing group for the un-published and anyone is welcome to join. It's a place where future authors can ask questions, share stories, and get feedback. Click (here) to find out how it works.

**Please note: I just found this and accidentally did an old meme question for it. I'll get it right next week for sure**

Current Question: How do you know when you're good enough?
People tell me I am a good writer but that's mostly because they've read my fan fiction and as we all know, FAN FICTION is a whole different ballgame. Fan fiction is so much fun but there are definite advantages to writing is rather than original fiction (something you came up from your own mind). 1) The characters are already created for you and 2) you have an almost-built in audience; meaning if people like the same fandom as you, they will probably read your work. Those things don't exist in the original fiction realm. Whereas I can get 50+ reviews for a story at, at I am likely to get 3-4. Its depressing so I always have to wonder if I'm good enough. I don't think I'll ever truly believe it but I want to believe it. I really want to publish in my lifetime as its a dream I've had since I was just a kid and writing stories about animals in my journal to pass the time.
