Author's responseOkay, here is what I got so far:
Sadie is a self harmer, and after her most recent suicide attempt, she ends up in a mental hospital, where her parents hope she deals with her suicidal tendencies and become normal..
That's all I got so far.
(#) xXchickenwithatacoXx 2013-04-12 07:15:28 PMWhat happens when everything she knows changes and the boy who changes it begins to like her?
Ideas: Possible character death- mental hospital fire.
Vic's a werewolf.
Vic's an old friend that you don't remember cos you lost your memory.
It's all a bad experiment and the doctors are all evil. We have to escape.
It turns out I'm your younger sister.
Author's responseI'll go for a possible character death and mental hospital fire. I want everyone to be human ok.
Hm. Like the end summary bit. I'll take it. but what could the 'everything i know' bit be..?
(#) xXchickenwithatacoXx 2013-04-12 07:18:25 PMHmmm. . . I dunno. Make something up. . . ? Huge plot twist?
It could be like a lie my parents said.. about boys? and I believe that and then Vic changes all that. What could the lie be though?
(#) xXchickenwithatacoXx 2013-04-12 07:28:52 PMMore Ideas:
It should be from a different era. Like, the fifties or thirties, when mental hospitals used electroshock therapy. Creepy stuff.
Each chapter should be based off of a song. And while you're writing, listen to a band's album. It'll help get you in the mood.
Really develop character personalities.
Have some flashbacks.
There's some more ideas I have
Also: for my character (this part isn't true) I've had really bad experiences and a lot of mental scarring so to feel safe I act like a little girl.
Author's responseYes Flashbacks'll be in there.
I'll develop my character's personality a lot too.
(#) xXchickenwithatacoXx 2013-04-12 07:30:25 PMMaybe your family's extremely Catholic so you've lived a sheltered life and Vic teaches you new things. If you've ever seen Titanic the main character Rose is really rich and sheltered and her lover Jack is this poor guy and he shows her how to act like a proper girl less.
Author's responseI saw Titanic. Can't remeber it though..
Hm. Sounds good.
Or, I'll go with the parent-lie and I know what the lie'll be.
Okay, so basically when I was younger my father left my mother and every day she'd say to me "all boys are the same, mean and leave when the girl gets bored." but Vic won't be mean and idk how's that?
(#) xXchickenwithatacoXx 2013-04-12 07:37:12 PMNo, it sounds good. Research mental hospitals. It might help you with writing your story. Like:
By the beginning of the 20th century, increasing admissions had resulted in serious overcrowding, causing many problems for psychiatric institutions. Funding was often cut, especially during periods of economic decline and wartime. Asylums became notorious for poor living conditions, lack of hygiene, overcrowding, ill-treatment, and abuse of patients; many patients starved to death.
Author's responseI wanna make the mental hospital like 21st century though. I'll basically make the mental hospital where they're trying to help but I don't want their help or something IDK.
