    I'm currently writing another story. It's a paranormal one about a girl with empath abilities and autistic traits. I want it to be about her struggles with the abilities she has while dealing with a disapproving father. I really need help with brainstorming and making this story interesting for my readers, but I'm stumped. :(

    I need help with something to do with the plot of my new story When I'm Gone. At the beginning of the story my main character is a drug addict and alcoholic and has been since he was a young teenager (he's now in his mid twenties). I know the two main events that will happen in the story is that one of his brothers will die due to a drug overdose (despite him not being an addict, it's a bit ironic) and the main character will eventually go into a treatment center/rehab and finally get the help he needs. Now, this story is very loosely based on a true story and in real life, he went to rehab first and got completely sober and six months later his brother died from the OD but I don't want the story to end up being about his brother dying so I'm not sure if his brother should die first and have the ending as him finally getting help because he saw what the drugs did to his brother or..? If anyone has any suggestions please PM me Cute

    Okay, I need someone who can help me with my fanfiction. I'm writing a Christmas story about AkuRoku (Axel x Roxas). Basically, Roxas has no idea what the holiday is, and it's up to Axel and friends to show him the true meaning of it. I know it's a bit cheesy, but I've been trying to plan it every year for two years... yet I have ever had much success. So, if anyone wants to help me with brainstorming and stuff... PM me? :3

    Ok, I need help with my story. I started writing it about 3 years ago. I posted some of it, and I have another chapter that is in drafting. However, I think the reason why I stopped writing, is because I have no idea where I want to take it. Basically, I need help with an outline. I also need to try and figure out where the story is going. Or, I guess maybe I could just scrap it, and begin a new story. However, if that's the case, then I need help trying to figure out where that one should go. I'm not a very experienced writer, but I would like to write some more!

    So, I'm in a pretty specific fandom, and with the growing number of fanfictions being put into that fandom, it's getting harder and harder to come up with a plot that isn't cliche and boring. I have a few ideas running around my head, but I need someone to help me figure out the skeleton of the plot and then to work with me when it comes to the bits I'm not so good with. PM me if you're interested- I would love to hear from you!

    So, I have this idea for an original fiction, but the things is; I don't know how to start it up and keep it going. - I watched this movie today, about a 17 years old girl who started babysitting a little guy. Then her and the father of the kid started having sex, and later she started her own little business, where the babysitters would have sex with the dads. - I want to write an original fiction based on that, but maybe without the business part. The movie is called: "The Babysitters"

    So what I'm trying to say is that: I want to write a "babysitter x dad" story, with the mentioned story as an inspiration. - I need help to start the story, and to plan out a plot for the story. Whoever helps me, will get credit on the story page.

    So can somebody please help me? Please PM if any of you are up for helping me. More details can be given if needed.

    I am attempting to sketch out a short story dealing with several sensitive issues - so far there are just two main characters and young man and a young woman and the woman has a significant mental disorder manifest part of the time and has raped the young man. This is only revealed as the story unfolds. I need help in treating the subject matter properly - getting it wrong would be dire. Furthermore, I intend for the characters to challenge the misconception in the fictitious context that female - on - male rape is impossible.

    Since my last update was a Christmas story... yeah...

    I want to write a story involving Loki. After all, I've been obsessed with him for about three months now. That's a new record for me! Well, anyway, All I have so far is that the character is going to have a form of autism. It's what makes her different from everyone else in the world. Loki sees that she's not like the others, so he decides to 'help' her. I really need some help with this since I honestly don't know where else to go with it. :<

    So, if anyone wants to help... or offer ideas... anything, please do so. ><

    Hey guys, I'm writing a story and found myself in the position where I'm not happy with flow. I would love someone to discuss the idea with and a way to make it seem less choppy! I just rewrote the first chapter so now I have two versions of it -- it would be great if you could read them both and help me pick the better to go from there. It's nothing long term, it's just a quick one-two job. I'm just going crazy deciding if I should leave it be or if I should switch it out. Marvel-related. Please and thank you!!

    I need help with my Alice story. You can find it here. I need help with brainstorming more ideas and getting all of my characters in the story to work. I also need help with the plot as well. >< PM me if you have any ideas or are willing to brainstorm.

    Okay so... my previous post is really old. Don't hate me for posting again, but I really need some help with my new story. I was hoping to explore other conditions such as maybe Social Anxiety Disorder or something like that.

    Anyway, my current story is about a girl who is overweight. It's a twist to the traditional princess stories. Everyday you see princesses who are thin and beautiful. You never see ones who are overweight or anything. The thing is, I'm having trouble brainstorming ideas on this because I'm not really used to writing princess related stories. I don't want anything that's actually made up. I want it to be set in modern times too. I don't mind their being made up characters or anything though.

    I just need help planning this story and getting out the ideas. ><

    I'm writing a story called Suffocated. I'm pretty sure that I've posted it here & I know I posted it on AvengedSevenfoldfanfiction.com. It's has a rating on 10.0 on that website, BUT I hit writer's block. Damn. I'm on chapter 9 & I don't have any major ideas for furthering this. I've been bouncing one idea back & forth, but I'm not sure how to weave it into this story. Short summary if you haven't read my story...
    Johnny is my little brother. Zacky & I have crushes on each other. Johnny is over protective of me. I get tired of it, run away, don't talk to anyone for years. They find me years later. We regroup & I move back to Cali. Some drama & now Zack & I are together. Zacky's ex girlfriend, Gina, is also coming in & out of the picture to cause drama as well. I was thinking of maybe having Zacky have a drug problem & then Johnny flips out & starts being over protective again & then finish with a good ending. But for what reason would he do that? I don't know. I'm open to any & all suggestions or maybe even help me with my idea I suggested. Throw your ideas out there & let's brainstorm! Thanks for reading! Hope to hear from you all soon. You can private message me if you'd like. I normally respond pretty quickly.

    So, I'm big on vampires. Everyone who knows me on here knows how obsessed I am with vampires and that I am an original fiction freak. I took down my vampire series, Blood Pleasure and the rest because I was lacking in the department of action. I don't know why but I seem to not be good with making action scenes seem interesting. What I would like help with is; how would you go about an action scene in your vampire novel? I think if people answered that question, it would help me out a great deal.

    I also need possible ideas for my stories, Immortal Kiss and His Blood Filled Kiss. They are sequel/prequel and you can find the link in my signature. I'm trying to make my vampires the type Anne Rice has in her novels. It's the version of them I adore endlessly.

    Hit my profile if you're interested.
    Thanks for reading. Cute

    -Maria.

    I'm writing a story called Beautifully Impaired. I have no idea where to go with it and am in grave need of brainstorming. DX So far, it's going to be a slice of life story about a girl with autism and how she functions in a world she doesn't quite understand. I don't need help with the disability part of the story, I can handle that myself. All I need help with is the the brainstorming for the plot.

    Would someone be willing to discuss my story with me and help me come up with a title? I think I'm ready to start posting the first several chapters but I just need a little help (namely, a name!)

    Please PM me if you'd be cool with helping me out!


    EDIT: I think I've got it now! Thanks to all who helped or offered to help!

    Okay. New story idea. DX I've been watching Doctor Who for what seems like almost week, and I'm obsessed with David Tennant. He's a life ruiner. >_> ANYWAY, moving on. I decided to tweak around with one of my stories. It's called Tomorrow Never Dies. Title is still pending right now but yeah...

    I haven't gotten much of the details or the plot, but I have a lot of ideas. I just need help ordering them and such. Every time I do, I get beckoned to watch more Doctor Who to see David and my brain shuts down the whole story thought process because of him. The beauty of being autistic, oh joy!

    The story is about a girl named Mia. Basically, she was one of those experiments gone wrong sort of thing. Well, she has no record of her past at all and wants to try and find her true calling or a reason to keep living her life. She sets out on a journey to find the truth and maybe a clue to her missing past.

    That's all i really have so far. The character does have autistic tendencies, but it's only because she had a lot of tests and other stuff done on her. I want her to have a lot of problems that she can't deal with, yet she also wants to find the reason for as well.

    I just need help with the plot. So, if you are interested in helping... PM me and we can talk it over I guess. XD

    I'd like to request help with writing...adult situations. NC-17, R rated, that sorta thing. I've always started stories with R-rated scenarios being done somewhere down the line, but I always panic and get nervous thinking that it would never be good. There's nothing worse than a boring sex scene or one that going into explaining something so much that you lose interest. I'm currently writing a fanfic that is R-rated, but I feel that I should get some help before I get to that part. I'm not anywhere near writing out those parts in my story, so I was thinking that as my mentor, you could give me a short prompt or situation I would write, and then you look over it and point out the dos and don'ts and how to improve. I figure I'm going to need lots of practice and teaching, so maybe we can meet at least once or twice a week depending on my progress to have a little writing session. Think of it as a teach/student type deal where I'm being given homework/assignment that I have to turn in and you grade.

    Ideally, I'd like someone who is experienced with writing R-rated material and who is patient and understanding because I'm hella nervous and worrisome when it comes to criticism and critiques. All I ask is that if you're interested and plan to PM me, please have one or two R-rated pieces ready to be shown to me. You can just cut them out of a story you wrote or just write them up on the spot. You don't have to write anything long, just something to give me an idea of your writing.

    I need help with information concerning in-vitro fertilization, i.e. the process leading up to it, the actual procedure, how long you wait between sessions if the procedure doesn't take. I also need to know what a feasible number of attempts is. Just, any information would be helpful.
