Chapter 9 “Types of Writers” – Section 1 “Self-identification”
With Links to Supplementary Material
While there are still a few topics in the genre section that I need more time to think about and research, I feel the need to take a break from it and move on to another section of major importance—Types of Writers. There are many types of writers—each separated by their motivation for writing. It is important to know what writing groups you fall into, so that you know your strengths, weaknesses, and can devise strategies so that your motivation can meet with your medium in order to create the best possible story. Today, I'm going to list the types that I will be later discussing, as well as giving readers the chance for input, in case I forget any of them.

Character Creation Tips
Note: I wrote this after reading a similar article in The Writer magazine about a year ago.  Hope it's helpful!
Not all characters are created equal.  Here are some steps to make yours superior.
1) Desire
Figure out what your character wants, needs, desires.  A closer relationship with God?  A place to belong?  Just to survive?  Figure it out.  You can’t move on to number 2 until you have.
2) Fear
Now that you know what your character most desires, you should be able to figure out what he/she most fears.  Doing the wrong thing, being alone, death?  They are the polar opposites of your character’s desires.
3) History
Go back in time to before your story begins and create a detailed backstory for your character.  What happened in to past to create in him the desires and fears that he has now?  Be specific.  Write out individual scenes, or at leas

How to Start and Stay Writing
I recently solicited my watchers to ask me writing questions that I would then attempt to answer in a writing guide such as this. This article is my first response, and there will be many more to come.
I've been asked to give advice on ways a writer can begin to put words on a page. The bottom line is as simple as this: sit your butt down and write.
Duh, right? It's the only way I know to actually write.
Sure, sitting your butt in a chair is easy, but getting your fingers to move and stay moving is a challenge. Here are three things that have helped me.
1) Have a goal.
Your goal can be as simple as "describe the person in this picture" or as ambitious as "write 1,000 words of my novel." Having a goal will drive you forward and motivate you to keep writing. Whatever you do, don't move your butt from your chair until you accomplish your goal.
Other practical goals include setting a timer, writing to the end of a chapter or scene, and completing a particular section of an outline or numbe

Research: How to do It
We’ve already discussed where to do your research, so now we’re going to learn how to go about using those tools. Like everything else we do in life, there’s a process to it, and once you’ve learned the steps, finding the information becomes a bit easier (admittedly, some of the harder queries will never get easier).
What do you Need to Know?
Knowing what it is that you’re trying to research seems sort of obvious, but there are times when you won’t have the first clue about what you’re looking for. These are mostly situations when you already have your story plotted out, and now you need fact to work around your outline.
The situation: A group of police characters is out in the sprawling farmlands of the West Country in the middle of the night. After a brief struggle, one of them is shot. The character that has done the shooting and his accomplice flee. The remaining uninjured character dials

How to write a summary
NOTE!: This is a random tutorial that I wrote because of all the people I know that say they can't write a summary. I have left plenty of other info in the artist comments so go read that if you must, now! Oh, and I am looking for errors so tell me if you spot any, I need to change them, ktnxsbai!
HEY! Have you always wanted to write a summary that was so good your readers read the summary more than your story? Well I hope not, then no one would be able to read the writing would they. But have no fear, although I may not be the most amazing writer ever I’m sure I can give you some basic tips on how to write a good summary that makes all the people who read it want to read the story right there and then.
Now I’m not saying you are incapable of writing one, no, everyone can. But, there are certain ways you can write it to ensure that people are going to read it. Obviously you need a nice story title, if there isn’t a good title people might not

Pre-Writing and Brainstorming.
Writing is a multi-step process.  If Shakespeare were to just write whatever he wanted to with no prior planning, well…we probably wouldn't know who Shakespeare is today.  Writing takes time, thought and a lot of organization in order for it to come out as one, cohesive work.  In the midst of your random scribbling, many of your ideas may seem to be jumbled and in-cohesive.  This makes it hard for you to really get your ideas in motion.  How do you fix that?  Well, the ultimate way to ensure flow with writing is to undergo Pre-Writing and a little organized Brainstorming.
There are several, critical points to Pre-Writing.  For each point, write down whatever it is that entails of it.

Writer Notes- Plot Development
Whether you are writing a novel or a short story it is best to have your MAIN PLOT before you get too much written down.  The Main Plot is the singular thread that runs through the novel/story.  You may have character ideas or scene ideas but eventually you need to think about a plot.  Do this sooner rather than later.
The best way to do this is to list your main characters and then decide what are their individual main plots. Are they all on the same quest with the same ideas / goals or do some of them have their own goals?
To help show this, here's an example:
Main Characters
Eric – To become knighted and serve his king
Vivian – To destroy her former master before he can poison the kingdom
Luke – To find his brother
Other Detail
Taldor – The largest city
Maybe from this list you decide Vivian is the MAIN character and her story line is the driving force however each of the other three have story lines that need to be tol

Your Character TOO Special?
Is your Special Character

Are you indulging in a few too many "special traits"? Is your story really an excuse to show off your Super Special Character? Are you committing a MARY-SUE/GARY STUE?
--> Dead give-away: Your favorite character is YOU only BETTER!
Who is Mary Sue/Gary Stue?
According to
"Mary Sue / Gary Stue is any original or deeply altered character who represents a slice of their creator's own ego; they are treasured by their creator but only rarely by anyone else. A Mary Sue/Gary Stue is a primadonna (usually, but not always badly-written,) who saps life and realism out of every other character around, taking over the plot and bending canon to serve their selfish purposes."

Writers Notes - Research
Firstly, my rule – any writer worth their salt who WANTS to be published someday has a LARGE collection of reference books in their home or knows intricately the layout of the reference section in their local library.
If you want to be a professional writer, a published writer then you can't skimp on the research. So, unless you were born with a mass of knowledge on hundreds of subjects then you will need to read up on them.  Not to mention things change especially in some subjects where improvements and developments replace original knowledge: for example Medicine, police procedures etc.
Do not think your readers are stupid. They are your second biggest critic (after yourself) and even loyal fans will be ready to point out flaws.  Try and get passed any anger or frustration you feel if people point out your flaws.  Take it as a positive step that they are trying to move your work forward (sometimes).
I read a novel once that described

Writers' Notes - Battles and Wars
While I have written a tutorial on fight scenes, I felt that it would be prudent to write one regarding wars and battles.  After all a war or a battle is not just about how to fight.
When you are writing a war or battle first make sure you plan where it's going to take place.  Land can be tricky, and it changes during a battle.
Image two giant armies amassing on a huge field. Infantry and cavalry alike, all decked in battle gear and heavy armour.
The pound of thousands of feet, man and horses alike.  How do you think the ground will look? Grass torn and flattened, turned to mud especially if the weather turns and it begins to rain or sleet.  Are there hills or mountains?  Has one army taken a higher ground, dug a moat or added spikes of wood to protect their area?
Is there forests around them, have the trees been burned by one army to keep the other from using the wooded area as shelter?  Has an army begun to p

Writers' Notes - Fight Scenes
I have read enough books to find that fighting scenes can be difficult to write.  Some of the novels I have read have had painful fighting scenes so this tutorial is an amalgamation of my thoughts on the best ways to do it.
First, let's break this down into aspects to think about:
Before writing fight scenes think about the characters involved.  What are their skills, what are their ideas of fighting?  Why are they doing so?  Is it a sense of survival?  Is it to show honour like a duel?  
For example -
Does a peaceful man watch his brothers murdered in a slaughter by the king's men.  Does he, in a rage, grab a fallen sword and defend the last of them.  He holds no skill but the sheer fury at watching his peaceful world be shattered.  Afterwards does he vow revenge and ride for the king's castle or retreat to the mountains to get over what he di
