~ someone has arrived... ~

Recommended Posts

Hello! You guys can call me Nyx. My pronouns are she/her. I'm a high school freshman digital artist/writer who lives in the US. In my spare time, I read (like, a LOT). As of right now, I'm reading Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell (!!!). My favorite authors in no particular order are Cassandra Clare (and her amazing Shadowhunters books), Tomi Adeyemi, Yoon Ha Lee, Christina Farley, Shannon Messenger, and Ellen Oh. (I can't forget about her!) Besides reading, you can find me fangirling about SOMETHING related to Good Omens (that show has touched my heart in SO many ways, and the book as well), or waiting in anticipation for season 2 of Umbrella Academy. Of course, I'm a bored person, so I'm always looking for a new decent TV show to watch! (Yeah, I don't watch a lot of TV.) 

Now, let's get to the writing part. I feel like I've been "writing" since 2nd grade. I'm trying to do NaNoWriMo this year. I currently have a super vague fantasy idea that starts with some girl being experimented on in a tower (kind of like Rapunzel) and I know that it ends in her becoming the Evil Queen or something like that. That's it. I need more details! I need more plotting and outlining and...Sorry. Can you tell that this hasn't been going well yet? 

Luckily, I found out about Worldsmyths. I decided to create an account because I joined the Discord server first (which I found on NaNoWriMo) but in fact I realized I stumbled upon this website a while ago, thinking "Oh I have to create an account", but I never really did until now. 

My instagram handle is Lunyxsta if you want to see some of my (crappy) digital art. 

Bye!

Welcome @Nyx! I was at a friend's house last night and her friend (and my semi-mutual friend) that was there mentioned Good Omens and said that the show is really good. I haven't read the book, but I've heard of it and it does sound like a good show, so I might end up checking it out.

I know this feeling/frustration ooooh so well! XD We do have a section of the forum for brainstorming, but you have to reach 15 posts on the forum before you'll be able to actually use it to make any posts, but in the meantime you're welcome to use the brainstorming channel on Discord to get some brainstorming help. One of the things I do when I have a vague idea is I go through my idea journals that I keep and write down the stuff that sticks out to me that would possibly work for the story. Or I go to the NaNo forums or a few other forums I know of and see what I can find for ideas there. Something else that might help you (it doesn't necessarily always help me but that's because I am a chronic over-thinker XD) is to just free write and write a scene or something where you kind of discovery write and figure things out that way.

I just looked up your instagram and your art is not crappy! XD It's way better than anything I can draw...which amounts to stick figures, lol.

Anyway, we're happy to have you here, and I hope we can help you do some brainstorming for your NaNo! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We have monthly writing challenges, and also do our own mini version of NaNo (sort of) in March (the last two years it was a six month challenge but I think next year we're going to do three months).
