I want to write a story about a girl whose brother is in severe depression. I was wonderin if someone wanted to write the girls POV and I write the brothers. Or visa verca?
Hmm..I'm sorry I've been told this before but what's a POV? (I'll try and help if I can....)
Hey, I would like to help you out with this! Please expand your ideas on this, sounds very interesting though! :’)
Point of view I think??? :)
Well you see, I wanted somebody else to write the POV (yes, it is point of view :D) to get a different feel and style to the story.
So say if I am writing form the girls POV it could start out with her being all alone because her brother is not talking to her anymore. And say if you're writing from his POV, it could start out of him being in a hospital or something. And then we could continue the story form the other persons story and see where it leads?
Ok, ace. So I am writing a point of view of a brother who suffers from server depression, how this reflects on his sister, the rest of his family and his life. Now if we are both writing about the same person (the brother), even if it is from two different people’s views we still need to decided on a personality, character and image. We also need main character names for this to work. Any ideas? Ok so I only have a few ideas but I was thinking maybe Luke, William, Angus, Jamie for his name. and for hers maybe Liyla or Lilly? it could be set in England and he could be a typical ‘English lad’. (Maybe 17 years old and her 15 but up to you?) He could be dark haired, slightly long unruly hair, pale complexion but tall. Dark circles always linger round his eyes but he has a slight beauty to him. What do you think?
That is brillant! I like the name Jamie. For her, I like Lilly. She could be petite, long, jet black hair and pale skin. She could be quite popular, often bullying ones around her. But, when she sees the effects of depression on her brother, she feels guilty, as if she caused it. What do you thnk?
Yes i love that! She could seem quite cocky, strong and cruel but it is all just really for show and truly she cant cope with what is happing in her family life (ie her brother etc...) when you say long do you mean tall and slim? Ok so what are the parents like?
