I'm a West african and I've lived my entire life in Africa, yet my writing is usually based on white characters which I find easy to create to an extent. I prefer story writing because I enjoy it but lately I began to run into problems that affect my writing a lot. It mostly affects location description. When I first started writing, I stuck to fantasy because I could create my own world and write pretty much anything I pleased, now I can clearly see a drastic improvement in my writing so I decided to start a novel and actually try and finish it. First problem: It's not fantasy, though its paranormal. I'm having trouble describing the scenes and its only the first chapter. As usual, the prologue was easy enough to write but now I'm starting to get into it, there are gaping wide holes in the description. I'll post it for critiques when my 14 days are up. For example I wanted to describe a really great office and I've got the image and everything in my head but somehow it does not materialise on paper. I went on google but it seems that I'm not typing in the precise keywords cuz I got nothing. I've started getting frustrated because I have to juggle my school work with my writing and so it doesn't leave much time for me to face this thing with a clear head while I'm busy thinking I have a botany assignment still undone and I'm scribbling stuff down for the next chapter. Suggestions and advice please? Thanks. Fei.
