15: How do you write a really good metaphor?
Metaphors… These are things I never could figure out all through school and even now, I don’t know lol. I think I write them on accident? XD They always confused me, I’m sorry.
16: What is your best piece of advice for writing angst scenes?
Find angsty music to help inspire you. Imagine something that would really make the reader ache emotionally, and could have possibly life changing consequences for the character(s).
I like to go to movie scores for angsty sounding music. Youtube has been reccing me some more (I have found the Epic Music corner of the site and I’m loving it).
17: What is your best piece of advice for writing hurt/comfort scenes?
You can write an incredibly painful scene, just make sure you are able to come back from it. If you go too far, no amount of ‘perfect words’ or anything can bring comfort. If you struggle with the comfort, try rewriting the hurt, make it a little easier on them.
Thank you for the ask!
