comment Writers block: Lost momentum, can't write even a sentence
@Mac Cooper Yeah, then you'll get drunk and write some amazing stuff and forget how you did it in the morning.

comment Is it OK to add description just because a chapter has none?
@what Oh, I see. Yes, the question still represents my intentions. I'll try to write questions like that in the future (sometimes the line between what's allowed and what not in this site gets confusing). Thanks.

comment Is it OK to add description just because a chapter has none?
@what I can't see the difference, though, between my question and this one: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/8332/… (both ask for a specific question while referencing personal material.)

@what Oh, sorry, I didn't notice. What can I do? Maybe just remove my example?

@Dan Bron Thanks for the reply. I'm curious. Why aren't you fan of either?

You can do it like David Mitchell and write a novel that consist on many interconnected novellas/novelettes.

comment Main noun: How do you decide where to place it?
Mmm, I'm confused. I read somewhere that the last part of sentence was the most important one.

comment Ways to remove “filtering” in narration?
Interesting. I didn't think of that. I wonder, though, why filtering makes the narrator sound less confident?

comment Is it strange to describe the narrator's facial expressions in a first-person narrative?
So you wouldn't consider the second examples as "telling not showing"? But something that comes natural to first-person narration?

comment What to do with cliched metaphors?
When the mother asks "are you all right?" she's referring to her health (the cold that the daughter previously mentions). Hence, not getting what she wants to say: that there's something else aside from health. I think this is my fault, though. I didn't post the whole thing. I wanted to keep the question brief.

comment What to do with cliched metaphors?
Actually in the end I listened to your advice, ha (and what's). I changed it into this: "Like she'd focus on my individual words instead of what they said as a whole." What do you think of that one? (What happens is that the mother is listening to her daughter, but not understanding what she wants to say.)

comment What to do with cliched metaphors?
Well, actually the mother isn't disagreeing with her. She just doesn't get her point/meaning. Which is that happens when two people are speaking different languages.

How about: "...as if we spoke two different languages, with words that couldn't be translated."

comment When is repetition good?
I see, well the thing that I wanted to do is to express two different ideas with the same verb. Pissed at him = Angry at him. Pissed me off = Made me angry. The first case would mean that she's angry at him. In the second, she's blaming her own feelings.

comment How to make a character that doesn't speak about himself relatable?
Oh, did that. Can you check my EDIT? The other characters do talk about him. But not too much. (By the way, thanks for the advice. I'll give it a thought.)

comment Is the following deus-ex-machina? If so, should I remove it?
Why it's not deus-ex-machina if it happens on the first 20-22% and not if it happens after?

Oh, I see. I thought no one in this site would read it.

Thanks, but wait a minute, how do you know so much about the story? Ha.
