Writer's Write by Lupana Writer's Write by Lupana
Non-writers think that writers have an easy job. They think that we can create characters and they'll do whatever we want them to do, when that couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, we create such realistic characters that they tend to have a mind of their own. We might want them to go slay the dragon, but they will go and storm the castle first because the love of their life is inside.

In short, writers are only right when the character says they are. No ifs, ands, or buts about it ;)

Normally I don't do these kind of contests, but this one intrigued me. How could I miss the opportunity to create my own writer's shirt? :D There are so few of them already!

Anyways, here's my entry. Please vote if you like it!

EDIT - Though the contest is long over, I still love this design. Would any of you guys be interested if I made this shirt available somewhere for sale?

I couldn't agree more. You wouldn't believe the arguments I've had with my characters, they're always telling me what to do.Sweating a little...

*gets pushed aside by Lewis* It's alright, Jax. I totally understand that. Listen, this insane person here keeps giving me excuses not to have me tell this girl I like her. I just want to tell the girl already but she won't let me!

*pushes back but is shoved aside again*

I really like this, and it couldn't be more true! You write one thing, but then have to completely re-do it because the characters are standing behind you going :iconohnoyoudirintplz: I really hope this hits the dA shop so I can buy it!

I am writing a novel right now and the main character (Jeneil, goes by Neil) is mad at me and won't speak. I have one character from a different story who would ALWAYS choose to storm the castle instead of slaying the dragon. :)

Haha nice. You know, you may be able to relate to this: [link] in which I effectively try and convince my character's that they're wrong and fail.
