The Power of Editing

The Power of Editing *originally published in the July 2018 edition of Hear Ye, Hufflepuff* The first draft of anything won't be perfect. Accepting that is the first step towards peace. 😉 But what do you do once you have accepted your draft's imperfection? Well, you edit, of course! Different projects will take a different number of edits. Here are a few tips on what to do next: Put the draft aside. The first step when you finish writing something is to stop looki

Alice and Frank Longbottom

Alice (11y/o -2017) and Frank Longbottom (10y/o- 2017) and at this point it's day 3 and I am burning out but Alice and Frank are pretty much straightforward characters. Alice is an art major, she loves bright colors that stand out. She has her mothers personality with a little bit of Neville sprinkled in. After the war, Neville changed a lot. He grew to be confident in his appearance, himself and his friends. Alice may be shy and soft spoken but she knows when to set her foot down. She cares a l

Percy and Annabelle Wood

Percy(11y/o -2017) and Annabelle Wood (10y/o -2017) are OCs of mine that i thought would be a fun little spice to add. You see, Percy was named after Percy Weasley; Oliver’s roommate and friend, I like to think that Oliver did it to spite Percy.  Bc in my head Oliver would refer to Percy Weasley as Perseus instead of his actual name so it’s like a personal fuck you and I am stealing your name, you get me? Now for Annabelle, it was purely on accident that it also refers to Annabeth and Percy from

The Scamander Twins (Lorcan and Lysander)

Lorcan and Lysander Scamander (10y/o -2017) as peculiar and unique as their parents they are only a milder version of Luna and Rolf. They both are interested in gargoyles and most definitely creatures of any kind. The Scamanders grew up surrounded by nature but they weren't cut off from the world. They also were super close with Hugo Weasley and Lily Potter. They were always up to shenanigans. They both play the beaters for the Hufflepuff team, some say that they are the new Weasley twins with h

Fred and Roxanne Weasley

Now for Fred (12y/o- 2017) and Roxanne (10 y/o -2017) ohoho if they are the closest siblings ever, both take after their parents A LOT. they both are hilarious as well as extremely sarcastic. Fred is best friends with James bc I am a basic bitch but I just love the idea of the boys taking their namesakes to a whole new level and just going ham with it. Fred loves a good laugh. He’s reliable for whenever you want to just talk and vent as well as having an infinite amount of practical jokes on him

Louis and Dominique (and Victoire and Teddy...you get the point) Weasley

i am copy pasting this from my google doc so if it seems like the transitions are weird its because of that. Now for my last siblings from the Weasley family, Louis (19 y/o -2017) and Dominique (11 y/o -2017). I know what you're thinking, ‘that's not the right order’, actually I know. I changed it on purpose. I need to explain something about Teddy (19y/o -2017) and Victoire (16y/o -2017) dynamic before I get into her siblings. Blondes for days!!!!! Bill was very disappointed when none of h

Molly and Lucy Weasley

So as you can tell theres a lot to get through. so I have the bright idea to do it by siblings! This isn't going to work very well but I need to somehow separate them. starting out with my favorite sisters; Molly and Lucy. the daughters of Percy and Audrey Weasley. Molly (10 y/o -2017) and Lucy (9 y/o -2017) are my next ones. I honestly remember being so in love with Molly back in 2015-2016 because I related most to her, and I honestly still do, but I relate to both Molly and Lucy now. I lo

NaNoWriMo Self-Care

NaNo Self-Care *originally published in the November 2018 edition of Hear Ye, Hufflepuff* Hello NaNo-participants! Below you'll find three tips geared towards this month in particular, but I hope that anyone who writes on a deadline will find them useful.

Writing LGBTQIA+ Characters

Writing LGBTQIA+ Characters *originally published in the June 2019 and June 2020 editions of Hear Ye, Hufflepuff* Originally posted in honor of Pride Month, I aggregated some tips for writing non-heterosexual characters. While this list is far from exhaustive and won't apply to every character you write, it will hopefully be a good place to begin. FFT was founded as a place on the internet for "people of all ages, genders, races, and sexual orientations" and maintains "a strong focus

"Further" vs. "Farther"

"Further" vs. "Farther" *originally published in the August/September 2018 edition of Hear Ye, Hufflepuff* Say you want to write about the distance between your character and their destination. Or you want to talk about an idea in addition to the one your character had begun with. You type the letter f and then pause. Is it "further" or "farther"? And how do you remember which is which? Well, this writing tip aims to tell you just that! So, the easy tip that can help is that "

Choosing a Point of View

Choosing a Point of View (POV) *originally published in the April 2019 edition of Hear Ye, Hufflepuff* Before you can write any story, it's important to choose a point of view from which to tell it. Sometimes this feels like the easy part of planning, but other times it can take more consideration. Below, read about the four main points of view that you have to choose from and some tips for writing each one. First Person The first person POV utilizes the pronouns I, me, my, etc. A

Welcome! (+ Blog Index)

Welcome to The Write Way! (Oh God, that sounds like I'm starting a cult.) I thought it important to start this blog off with an explanation of what to expect from its content and a brief history of its inception. In March 2018, I began a monthly Writing Tips column for Hufflepuff's newsletter, Hear Ye, Hufflepuff. Besides a brief hiatus last fall when I was busy planning my wedding, I've written an entry to this column every month since then. So far, I've accumulated 21

Sorting the MCU (Peter Parker)

I’m a Brooklynite, so Captain America’s exchange with Spiderman in Civil War made my day and remains one of my favorite exchanges… like, ever. “Queens.” “Brooklyn.” Queens is not the best borough, obviously (which is why Steve wins the fight, in an art-reflects-reality kind of why), but Queens is still adjacent to the best borough and has the 7 train, so it deserves props nonetheless and may be the second best borough, all things considered. By this somewhat questionable logic, I decided to sort
