We explain what Discord is, and how our writing community there can help you write your stories.
The Writer’s Struggle
Imagine this scene: it's 2:30 a.m, you're stuck trying to name your protagonist's third uncle, and none of the names you've found on Google are cutting it. You've pulled open your baby name book at least five times, discarding all of the common names such as "Jake," "Jamie" and "Carl." The third uncle comes in with a plot twist, so it's important to get his name just right. You're on your third glass of red bull when your friend texts back the perfect name: Zander.
Getting feedback is very important in novels, from anyone who will read them. Yet, sharing novels with friends and family can seem so personal, especially when it's about a taboo topic. How do you casually explain to your mother that the reason why you researched murder weapons and the maximum death sentence for a murder is for research, after all? Exchanging writing ideas is so important for writing feedback, growth and development. It can also spur you to write more.
Luckily, Plot Factory has something that can help you exchange ideas, get excellent feedback, and chat with other writers - our very own Discord server!
