  1. Have a suggestion for a new video? Add it here and vote for your favorites: http://bit.ly/VivienVote

  2. I know this video was 3 years old but thanks for this tip! I'm currently writing a story of "what if everyone knew of the supernatural?"[the characters are from pokemon sun and moon, they are not mine!] But im having trouble writing the 4th chapter but this helps a lot! Thanks!

  3. I love Harry Potter and I agree with you that we can not and should not take other peoples works. Dead pool is good too. 🙂

  4. I am thirteen and always had a thing? for writing. I was seven when I wrote my first short story on Word. I printed it, gave it to my primary school teacher and then the next day it was photocopied and placed around school. Now, thirteen, I am struggling with writing a novel/book.

  5. Yeaaaah….Not helping. (Nothing wrong with your advice!) I think my ideas are just too bare and I have no imagination to deal with their bareness. Honestly, I have simple stuff like "a character who is obsessed with Latin" and that is that. I have no idea what to do about it. (I know I want her to be a side character. So that complicates things since I have no idea who should be the main character. I also have actual story ideas but the problem is pretty much the same.)

  6. Whenever I get a new idea, the very first fear I have is that it's to similar or might even be the exact plot of another book. I just had this idea, and other than worrying if it's even good enough to be a novel( I have trouble asking people for their opinion of my book because I'm afraid they'll find it stupid, even if I think it's good) I also worry if there's another one like it. So when I post the story somewhere, someone might go "HeY YOu cOPieD ThIs!"
    Or I might be copyrighted or something.

  7. Great video, easy to understand and actually helped with a lot of problems I've been having with my novels 🙂

  8. Oh/Ooh? This is me with my star wars story,Sleeping beauty/Sweet elegant Aurora…'s film which turned 60 yesterday,and my fantasy,Sci Fi and many other stories,my star wars story started off as a matrix like drawing.

  13. I'm working on my first draft of my novel and my question is, how long should drag the will they won't they? I state in the first chapter that they like each other, but she is dating a total A hole who doesn't even go to the school anymore and the boy she likes is one of her best friends
