Hello! I noticed that some group on a site called Goodreads completely plagiarized all your hard work! The plot, all of the information and history about the Academy/Classes/Characters, even some of your graphics. I don’t know if that bothers you, but I thought I’d let you know anyways. https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/118018-barnoa-academy-advanced-roleplay
Yes, it does bother me when people steal my work, so thank you very, very much for letting me know. I really appreciate you telling me, and I’m sorry I didn’t reply sooner. Just the fact that someone would do something like that really discouraged me from creating anything for Barnoa for a while, and just when I was about to start again after exams a personal matter took me away from Tumblr entirely. However, now Barnoa is running once again, and is currently undergoing a revamp so the roleplay should be reopening soon! If you’re interested in joining then we would love to get your audition when we reopen. Again, thank you so much for letting me know, I really appreciate it, and am very happy to say that the group copying us has been taken down.
Okay. Hi there. Quick one: I usually get these ideas that I find really cool but they die out around the tenth chapter, and so lately I have only been writing one-shots, but I wanna go back to the 30 chapter kind of thing. Advice on how to prevent ideas from getting lost or feeling... dunno, dead?
The best advice I can give you is to plan. Plan and plan and plan. That way, you know what you are writing and what should be happening next- it does help with the writing process.
I know that for myself this doesn’t always work, and I get stuck. The amount of ideas I’ve thrown away after the first ten chapters is pretty high- so I definitely feel your pain. In these sorts of cases I find if the story is worth it it is easier to struggle through the pain and the hard work to reach the end. Most of it is mind over matter, it’s a struggle to get words onto paper.
But really, planning does help. The more detailed the plan the better (at least for me). If you don’t like a detailed plan then bullet points will do the same sort of thing. If you know the direction you are taking your story in and most of the major plot points the easier it is, honest.
Best of luck to you,
Imagine if your greatest fear was being naked in public, and the first Boggart you encounter is just naked you…
And when you shout ‘Riddikulus’, it changes to naked you swinging about on a wrecking ball and singing their head off…
That would be an interesting day in Defense Against the Dark Arts
…Snape’s face, though…
If someone gives you important ideas for your story, stop being one hundred percent yours?(someone else gave to you the essence of the idea, but you modified it)
I’m unsure of the legalities, but I’m pretty sure it would be still yours. Perhaps you should discuss this with the person? Just so you know where you stand?
Anyone know anything on this subject?
