  • Am I too old to read young-adult books?

    I absolutely love young adult books that have greek mythology mixed in such as the Apollo trials and Chronicles of Nick. I'm 18 now and have had people tell me I shouldn't be reading young adult books, that I should read more mature stuff and forget about the fantasy world.

  • Is there any way I could 'tour' an insane asylum and learn more about what happens there?

    I have a really good idea and I'm thinking about writing a story about a mental patient and what happens in their everyday life but I don't really know much about anything that happens in those places or what people experience.

  • Should I write a story about black people as a white man?

    Best answer: Hi there! Given the current political climate, I can totally understand your perspective 1,000% of the way. It's awful how far some people have gone to establish whatever racism against whatever race, but I don't think you have much to worry about in terms of getting demonized. Sure, someone's always... show more
    Best answer: Hi there! Given the current political climate, I can totally understand your perspective 1,000% of the way. It's awful how far some people have gone to establish whatever racism against whatever race, but I don't think you have much to worry about in terms of getting demonized. Sure, someone's always going to disagree with this or that, but you shouldn't want those people to read your story anyways! Like-minded people will be more understanding and willing to read your story, and anyone who's so racist as to say you can't write about WHATEVER topic, or WHATEVER character, in WHATEVER setting, just because you're white, likely wouldn't have the capacity to even understand how complicated Science Fiction stories can get. As long as you do your share of research on that time period and write your protagonist how you would write any other protagonist (black, white, or whatever race), you'll have nothing to worry about! Creative thinkers and readers hardly care for what characters look like, what's important is that you have an interesting concept and a suitable protagonist.

But on every worldbuilding site, I post this ask on everyone immediately says Harry Potter that's fine and all, I've read all the books and watched the movies but I actually don't like Harry Potter that much it's kind of bland and the magic is kind of undesirable in my opinion and no I don't like Twilight either. You don't know how many times I've been called an idiot Twihard this. So far I've watched The Craft and Pans Labyrinth.

  • Would you be offended by fiction written by a white person from the point of view of a minority person?

    If so, why? Do you deny that people should be free to exercise their imagination and write from any viewpoint? Do you think people should be restricted to writing from their own ethnic or racial point of view?

    Best answer: I meditate. There's a lot of amazing guided meditations you can find online, as well as in the app store. I also go for walks out in nature, or long car drives listening to music. I find myself listening to a lot of ambient tones since it tends to calm me down and put me into a more relaxed state of mind. I also tend to draw or paint, it's therapeutic. It really depends on you as an individual though, you need to find that out for yourself. It's easy to do if you're aware of your state of mind and the reasons it alters with certain emotions. But, meditating is definitely a mind relaxer, for anyone.
