Hello, I'm new here. I recently have been suspected of having mild ASD and somebody recommended me to visit this community. I've looked around and found it quite interesting.
To briefly talk about who I am, I am a high-schooler interested in technology, science and language skills including fiction writing and communication skills, which I considerably seem to lack and have decided to learn some from this community.
If there's anything you would like to talk about, I would always be happy to join the conversation.
Say anything that comes to your mind at this very moment below!

Welcome to Wrong Planet!

Fiction writer and communications skills. What do you like to write about? The only information that I learned about in fiction writing is begin by describing the scene using your 5 or more senses. What did it look like, what did you smell and hear. How did it taste? Did it send chills up your back or did you sense something in your gut? Frame the scenes around the senses.

The other thing I learned is I never follow an outline. I just brainstorm and brainstorm and commit all this to paper. Then I gather up all the pages and begin to sort it into an outline. It is like I write from the inside out. It flows much easier that way. I never have writers block because my mind is always thinking. But sometimes I do not know where the story will lead until the very end.

Could not agree more with the importance of figuring out what you feel through your sensory system. I, too, am trying hard to describe how I feel and what I can sense to 'frame the scenes'. And your advice on not to follow a certain outline and to focus more on free brainstorming gave me a new point of view. My conspicuous and prolonged problem as a fiction writer has been that I was overly focused on forming the outline or what it would sound like to the reader. And I believe that what you told me about brainstorming would help me in the long term :)
Thank you for the genuine piece of advice. I really appreciate it :) :heart:
