  1. Help me brainstorm (for fiction) please!

    Advice Center
    Novice fiction writer here... The draft for my last short story for this course I'm taking is due tomorrow... Although I have the bare bones of my plot, it also leaves me with a lot of logistical questions that I want to figure out before I start writing. Unfortunately, I admit I'm a little...
  2. Need Character Help!

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I'm a novice fiction writer, who's currently taking a fiction writing course that's required for my English major :sad: Anyway, I just received feedback on my first short story that two of my supporting characters (whom I would identify as Enneagram 3) lacked dimension and were exaggerated to...
  3. [ENTJ] ENTJ - Yearning for something greater

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Yearning for something greater is a curse that many of us are intimately familiar with. A storm rages within us all and threatens to destroy us from within if it is not either satiated or tamed. A mirror into the heart of those who thirst for thunder and great deeds. Those that crave adventure...

  9. [ISFP] Tips on Writing an ISFP Character?

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    I have a main character which is still very much in the developmental phase, but I would like to try and make her a more realistic ISFP. I'm not completely sure how I should go about doing this. She has the artistic stereotype to some extent (she's a singer/songwriter, she dislikes drawing but...
  10. "writers can't deal with reality"?

    General Psychology
    Hi everyone! I read this the other day and couldn't get it out of my head since: writers can't even deal with reality so they have to make up their own... I took that very personally and it made me wonder, is it true? Is it actually just a coping mechanism? Or does fiction make us understand...
  11. [ENFP] Non-quirky NFPs

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    An oxymoron, I know, right? But as a history major and an aspiring fiction writer, I've been wondering what ENFPs and INFPs would look like in a really constricting cultural setting. In the modern Western culture, individuality is celebrated, in theory if not always in practice, so nfps are...
  12. LOTR Species and MBTI Types Comparison?

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    Just a for fun thread. Which LOTR species do you think can be compared to which MBTI type? Like for example which type for the hobbits, the orcs, humanity of middle earth, elves, maiar(gandalf is one) or the dwarves? Expecting an interesting and fun discussion here. Though this could be tricky...
  13. Trouble Identifying Character...

    What's my personality type?
    Enneagram CP 6 or 8, Fictional Character I'm actually having trouble identifying a character's Enneagram type. In short, I'm a writer, and this character has given me a lot of grief over his type. He just likes to be complicated, I'm sure of it. Initially I thought he might be an 8, then I...
  14. Some Fairy Tales

    The Art Museum
    I have these stories elsewhere on the web. I originally wrote them to accompany, help define, and expand upon a world I made for RP purposes (a world called Soyl). The attachment above is a recent experiment in typography. I'm interested in any and all feedback.
  15. INTP here to learn more about personalities

    Hello! I am an INTP with this recurring pipe dream of writing a novel. One of the things that a novelist has to learn is how to create distinct characters -- characters that speak differently, think differently, and act differently from one another, yet are still believable enough for a reader...
