Latest issue

Here's a preview of the latest issue of this newsletter.

I just realized why so many Young Adult Dystopian stories feel the same to me - They start off with unique concepts, but they all end up becoming a series about overthrowing the government and forgetting about what made them unique in the first place.

I just realized why so many Young Adult Dystopian stories feel the same to me - They start off with unique concepts, but they all end up becoming a series about overthrowing the government and forgetting about what made them unique in the first place. r/writing   u/XxItsNowOrNever99xX  

Lets take the Hunger Games for example, the first book is about being sent into a death arena where you have to survive both the environment and the other tributes trying to kill you.

What are your favorite literary podcasts and why? r/WriterMotivation   u/mkrainey  
Fanfiction is the Perfect Form of Training Wheels for a new Writer. r/writing   u/Bluehag08  

I see a lot of people disparage Fanfiction here, and everywhere else writers gather, but there is a case to be made for it. Building worlds is difficult.

What if Marvel Studios just put Batman in, let’s say 6 of their films in a major role, and decided to just pay all the fines they’d face? r/hypotheticalsituation   u/firstdays234

I often post prompts here on this subreddit, and do my best to come up with unique, fresh ideas, but recently I haven’t been able to get a prompt above 25 upvotes or so, and I keep seeing the same basic ideas circulating in the top spots –...

[WP] You are an immortal, but you're not that old. In fact you were born between 1980-2010. Mortals excitedly ask you about experiencing age old historical events in person, only to be disappointed and bored when they find out you're a millennial immortal. r/WritingPrompts   u/arizonaicedgreentea
