Alright, I’ve posted with you (duh) before and I chose one of your posts from our thread ‘Opposites Attract” I’ve decided to begin with starting posts, as your others seem lengthy and descriptive, we will get to those later. For now, here is the post.
Deathly Attraction, for once, was going around the world outside of the only place he had know, his father's land. Now that he was out here, a lot of things were new to him, and he wasn't quite sure what exactly to do... For starters, why in the hell were there houses?! Who or what lived in them. Devil had only really thought that all of the humans had died... and now it seemed as if that was wrong. Snorting he galloped onward to a new area, smirking when he came to an area covered with death, almost every tree was dead an n it's side, while ther seemed to be a forever fog over the ground.
It is a good post, punctuation is good ect. But I’m going to show you how you could make it a lot longer. Let’s break it down.
Deathly Attraction, for once, was going around the world outside of the only place he had know, his father's land
This is the starting sentence of your post.
1. We could easily expand this. Describe his father’s land. Instead of keeping going you could say. Deathly Attraction, for once, was going around the world outside of the only place he had known, his father's land. His father, (insert fathers name here XD), was a relentless force breeder and rebel. The land he had left had been barren and bare, with valleys that protected the mares from the harsh wind during the wild winters. Here, the land was lush and green, the grass tickled his hocks as he pranced along the wet dew covered groundhis thoughts resting on (insert what his thoughts are ‘resting on’
Already I’ve made this longer, and I could expand it even more. Other things to remember:
1. When you use starting posts, if you are in a spot of trouble making your posts longer, then describe your character, his thoughts, description ect 2. Try a change of style of writing. I have always found that I have way more muse when I write in first person, it’s a lot easier to portray your characters feelings (for me anyway) 3. If you are having muse problems; here are some of the things I do: 4. You can always add an extra descriptive word or two. It makes your posts longer, and easier to read. 5. If you do make your posts longer, then you get posts that are longer in return, I always find that if the person I am rping with does 100 work or less replies, I can only get about 100, its very hard to get ideas out of a post that’s only 50 words long - Listen to music; music helps you relax and it normally always give me muse - If your character is based of a movie i.e. A friend on another site had a charrie based of the Hatter in ‘Alice in Wonderland”. If say, you have a character based of the Hatter then watch the movie ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and try to find some muse, look at; how he acts, how he speaks ect. Now for homework –rubs hands together gleefully o.O-
I would like you to expand your post above using the method I taught you, just remember, even if you don’t expand it much, it doesn’t matter. But there are always ways, and if you are having problems, ask, I don’t bite Your homework must be submitted in/before 5 days If you need an extension, ask!!! ~KitKat
