Need a mentor or mentors for certain areas.

Okay, so I am going to make this short and simple, hopefully.

I would like a mentor that can help me out in terms of writing out personality and history. Also, writing out a plot, too.

If I can find a mentor or a multiple of mentors, that'd be awesome! My writing skills get me by but are not to some of the standards of roleplay I join. If that makes sense.

All and all, I just want to be a better writer!

Hey Dumisa! That happens to be the fields I'm particularly good at!. I'd be more than happy to help you out with them. I took a look at some of your most recent characters, and you seem to have creating personalities down pretty well, along with extensive skills at making profiles. Is it just the writing down the personality and history that you struggle with, or is it the coming up with it?

Overall, you look like a very good roleplayer. I didn't look in depth just yet, but you clearly have the ability to write a very good quantity each post, and your profile for Raquel Lewis is very thought out. I assume other recent characters are the same as well.

As for the plotting, what's your current method of plotting a story or roleplay out now? I'm more than happy to help you figure out how to plot, and to help you with practicing plotting something out.

Hey Demi! First, I thank you for your kind words in regards to my writing. But I just think that I am not giving people enough to go by, you know?

But I have a problem coming up with personalities and history then writing them down. I tense up and be like Uhm, alright. Yeah. Then do not even write out half of the time or enough information is not given to make them pop. LOL.

Coming up with a story and a plot is my biggest issue, to be honest. I've written up some stories and plots before but Uhm, let's just say that those roleplays never went far. Haha. But if I can get help with coming up with a story and plot, that'd be awesome and epic!

Thanks. :)

It seems that I'm about a month late to the party, but I'd like to offer my services as well, Dumisa. I've been writing for a very long time, and I've learned that when I can't invest in my characters I can't invest in an RP. To that end I've come up with a few different, quick ways to brainstorm and jot down information.

All I ask is that, in return, you use the website's default font and left justification; it's difficult for me to read your font choice and center justification.
Do you feel like you're a bad writer? PM me, and let's talk about it. :)
