Tumblr is a wonderful thing. Besides offering hours of random thoughts, it tosses gems out like candy.
Today’s is a special case…
Jukeboxhound reposted about a site (https://charahub.com/refer/aefo) that helps organize your OC characters. I know most people in fanfiction don’t go near OCs, but if you ever develop the world past what the original creator fleshed out, this site is GOLD. It helps define what and who your OC is. From family links, to back story, to setting, dislikes, appearance, jobs, appearance, love interest, birthday, and finally FANDOM.
Who else has spent several thousand words on their character, but haven’t even thought of what the OC’s b-day was? *holds up hand* Guilty!
You can apparently plug in a hundred OCs. A HUNDRED. It boggles my mind. Then again, I might have… thirty. >.> I tend to create characters on the fly when I’m
bored inspired and in the middle of writing with Lost. It just happens.
THAT FIRST SITE IS EVERY WRITER’S DREAM DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I’VE TRIED WRITING SOMETHING AND THOUGHT GOD DAMN IS THERE A SPECIFIC WORD FOR WHAT I’M USING TWO SENTENCES TO DESCRIBE AND JUST GETTING A BUNCH OF SHIT GOOGLE RESULTS
There have been many many times where either Lost or I would pause and say, “WORD,” and then go on to describe what it is that we are trying to say. Sometimes between the two of us, we get it out in about five minutes or less. A few rare instances has the word eluding us for hours until sometime later it hits us and we have to scroll up to search for the impostor in our writing. Out damn spot!
And I am sorry that I haven’t been posting anything lately. There is hope on the horizon! Lost and I are striving to get together and write. Our schedules are just… not… meshing… DX
