Author has written 3 stories for How to Train Your Dragon.
Hello, this is Stormdragonrider
Favorite color: Orange
Favorite food: On the fence. I'm a teenage boy, so I pretty much like food when there is lots of it.
Hobbies: I like to write, play cello, and fencing (which is sword fighting. It has nothing to to with actual fences...)
Favorite pet: I like cats, but if it were up to me, I would get a dragon (my parents won't let me)
Most used phrase: THIS... IS... PASTA!!!( Yell at opportune, or inopportune, moments)
And of course, favorite movie is: HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 (only slightly more than I like the first)
the combination of a writer's brilliance and a child's imagination
the place where you can show the world your magic
the place where anything can happen, and no idea is too crazy
the place where rules are what make them
the love of the inexplicable, and the joy you find in the impossible
the ability to dream
the ability to see without seeing, and show that vision to the word
the courage to try something never done before
the dedication and will to keep going, hoping for a happy ending
my love, my joy, and my passion
So come fly with me... into a fantasy.
Tips for writing fanfiction.
Here are a few tips I found are useful when I write fanfictions. I have learned these mostly from my experience (which isn't a lot) and so hopefully someone will find this helpful.
1. Write something you know that you would want to read.
2. Make a plan for the story, but leave it open to tweaks.
3. Use good grammar, spelling, and punctuation. It makes a difference (Though I make plenty of mistakes in this department :))
4. Make the story your own. If you find yourself copying lines word-for-word what characters are saying in the book or movie, then it's just a retelling, rather than something you made up on your own.
5. Use music to inspire you. I find it very much helps me get into the mindset of the scene if I can get an appropriate song playing in the background while I write.
6. Be prepared for reviews, both good and bad. Take them into account, don't let them discourage you, and be open to constructive criticism.
7. Most importantly, have fun! When you are having fun with your story, you write better, longer, and people will like the stuff you write more.
