If You Were A Writer Stamp by MysteriousBob777 If You Were A Writer Stamp by MysteriousBob777
It's not that tragedies aren't tragic, or that disasters aren't disastrous.
It's not that we should rejoice over death and destruction - that would be terrible!
But let's just be honest.
If bad things didn't happen, what would make life precious?

This is something that every writer should understand. It's a part of playing god.

And if God is real, I know why bad things happen.

Way to speak the truth!! :D

When I write I try to make the situations either horrible for the character or just hard in general (not all the time, but a lot of the time.) When I write I try to make it as heart wrenching and emotional so that the reader can feel the strife and the heartbreak (and joy :D) of the characters involved. No tears from the author, no tears from the reader. Cool stamp!

so true...

A completely happy story is a boring story... Things have to happen, to make it a realistic and good story. Same with life...

Great Stamp!!! :iconbigsmileplz:

OMG THANK YOU! I needed this stamp! Some of my readers were upset at me because I killed off one of my characters! But sometimes you NEED to let the tragedies happen on their own,
Thank you SO much for making this

I've had that experience too. One of my friends spent days hunting me down when I killed a character she liked. XD

I'm glad you like the stamp :D

Can't people understand that in writing, things don't always go right (and everyone's like "Nuu! Hao can dis happen?! Dey must come back 2 life!!") Life doesn't work that way, go figure XD

Exactly. They even tend to write like that! And not only does life not work that way, it's terrible for the plot and it can turn your characters into Mary Sues...

Exactly! It's annoying when you kill the character so everyone feels bad for them, I killed mine for 2 reasons:

If she stayed alive it would interfere with the plot

and 2, her husband (who is a canon) would be really OOC if she was alive (He's kind of cold-hearted and can be a jerk at times, but that's because he had a tragic life, and if she died that'd make him who he is now.)

I brought the character back as a spirit, but only for the ending, and then you don't see much of her again (I'm re-writing it because she was in the sequel and her husband saw her, I'm changin it so he never noticed her.)

I'm prud of my OCs, none of them are sues because I spend FOREVER making them PERFECT (irony, I mean perfect in writing XD)
