comment How much time should you devote to learning the craft?
I think you have two kinds of procrastination now: how-to books about writing and Q/A sites about writing. I agree with what and John Smitter. Just write. You'll develop some sort of "instinct" that will come out automatically when needed.

but then isn't the Synecdoche New York example similar to the one I wrote? (They are both unlikely but not fantastic.)

Do you think slowing things down and adding more descriptions help? I heard that made scenes "feel" more realistic, even though what's happening doesn't make sense at all.

Thanks I guess you're right. I love the stuff that Murakami and Kaufman produce. Maybe I'm getting too obsessed with reader's feedback.

comment Is it a bad idea to publish individual chapters of my book idea, online for feedback?
@Nicole B. Well, I don't think it's over. But I'm not a fan myself, so I have no idea. I think there are other people here who know more. (By the way, to know if an idea is good or original you have to wait some time. If you're still in love with your idea after a few months or a year, it's probably good. If you just can't give up the idea even though you wrote ten crappy chapter, then it's probably good. And then of course, online feedback. If people say it's original and unique, then maybe it is.)

@evilsoup "Middle grade fiction is defined as novels with characters aged 8-13 or novels intended for that audience age range." google.com.tw/… My novel has suicide dogs, blood-dripping cats, and stuff like that. Not sure if it'll be suitable for them.

@Lauren Ipsum I see. I think my problem is that sometimes I don't know whether I'm padding my stories or adding stuff that is actually making them better.
