(Hopefully this helps)


That’s great, thanks. So what is it you’re stuck on?


What I’m on stuck on is trying to create a character that isn’t a cliche?


A new one, or changing one of the ones you listed? Because the ones you’ve listed seem fine to me.


Okay, can you look over the draft I wrote in the beginning to make sure that it is okay?


Sorry, I don’t do that. You’re looking for a critic, which you can find here


Okay, I need help creating a plot for the story. I have a few things in mind.


Sure, what are they?


Well, this a collaboration.
Plot: There trying to find Artemis and bring her back home to take her place has princess and the Oracle. But, Artemis doesn’t want to do it because of the ultimate sacrifice she has to make and doesn’t want to because her life is relatively normal

Where Riku is a spy for Ardyen, his objective is to lure Artemis and capture her. At first he’s up for it but, then he slowly changes his mind knowingly, he is putting his friends lives at risk and he doesn’t want to do it anymore.

That’s what I have.


Who’s perspectives do you plan to write from? Artemis and Riku?


Hey Mush, you’re really cool for doing this. I’d love it if you could sort me out with some writing prompts. I write mostly in the urban fantasy genre, but I’ll also take anything that’s romance, supernatural or teen-fic. Thanks!


Yeah, no problem!


Urban Fantasy



I plan to write both. At first I was going to do Artemis perspective, then I was going to slowly transgress to Riku’s perspective. Should I do that or no?


I wouldn’t recommend replacing Artemis’ perspective with Riku’s (because readers will have spent x amount of chapters on her side, growing attached to her) but it’s definitely ok to add Riku’s in and switch between the two.


Thank you so much again, that’s awesome!


No problem! Hope they help.


So, Keep Artemis’s perspective but, just add in Riku’s? Don’t switch or transgress them.


That’s what I would recommend (or only use one perspective the whole story). The two perspectives sound like two different sides of the same overall story, so they should work together well.


Okay, that makes more sense. Let me give an example…
One prespective: Is trying to save the kingdoms and bring peace.
Two prespective: 1) Is Artemis’s past coming to haunt her and not wanting to be involved with the war.
2) Riku’s personal conflict of betraying his friends and family by being a spy for the imperial army.
Something like that?
