Do you write in the style of any particular author? If so, who?
Well, I guess the closest matches might be Rick Riordan, Patrick Rothfus, and J R R Tolkein. Maybe. It's not intentional, but those are the three most similar to what I think I write.

Have you ever written something in a completely different style than normal? All dialogue, or none, or just imagery, or along those lines.
oooo! These are fun exercises! If you're strong with dialogue, describe the interior of a taxi cab after a hard breakup or the coffee shop table after a nailed interview or a new house after a miscarriage. The only rule is you're not allowed to use words explicitly linked to any of the circumstances while describing the scene, and there's no dialogue. If you're great at description but find dialogue difficult, copy a conversation during lunch and go back later and change words choice or order and try to get a completely different tone without changing exactly what was said. You can try describing senses using a candy and just spend five solid minutes describing one sense at a time until you've finally eaten the candy ((Eat it slow, though. You need to describe how it tastes for five minutes ;) )) I've occasionally done projects where you pick an inanimate object and use that as your narrator, which I've discovered I enjoy. Just, lots of cool things. 10/10 would recommend.

Nah, I'm not really good enough or distinct enough to compare myself to anyone

Yeah, I write different junk all the time I guess

      i don't think i could claim to match the quality of any of these authors, but it take a lot of influence from terry pratchett, douglas adams, walter moers, & tracy chevalier.

      i love to do no-dialogue stories. i think those are neat. i also like to do stories out of order & try to do it in a way that is comprehensible.

Definitely! I count as an author, right? XD
Naw I don't really, or at least not intentionally xD But I have been told my characters have a Brandon Sanderson feel. My heart diedddd that made me very happy lol

If there's one thing I love the idea of, it's doing things weirdly XD I'm not sure if I've ever followed through on style? But I've definitely put a lot of thought into it, even if I haven't done it, and I've for sure made my ideas or execution strange cx (Intentionally XD) If it's a short, usually emotional piece, I sometimes change tenses or even switch first/second/third povs to addle my readers. It's great

Not me, but fanfics are Wren's jam. Idk if she's on here often enough to see this convo but I can probably poke her on XD

I can't count how many times I have tried to write down the story/history behind my first oc, Neo.
- I won't be posting it on here though o.o it's a bit too dark for that...
But I think I have started over five times already, I just can't seem to get the idea I have in my head out on paper or in this case, on the screen... :c
Does anybody have any tips on how I can get started and stay motivated? I really want him to have a story, and it should be a good one as well - because, after all of the things I have put him through, he deserves at least that x'D

My style tends to shift depending on what I've been reading lately, so yes, kind of. I don't usually do it intentionally, though if I want to write something in a certain style I can use it to my advantage by reading something in that style first.

Have you ever written something in a completely different style than normal? All dialogue, or none, or just imagery, or along those lines.
I've done a couple things like that, but I don't do it often. It can be pretty fun though!

The best way to get writing done is simply to sit down and write. Everyone wants to skip that step, but it is, frustratingly, a requirement. Don't worry about quality, just get the words down. You can always edit later. I've heard the first draft described as telling the story to yourself, and that's generally a better mindset than trying to put together a finished product on the first try.
If you're really having trouble with the "just sitting down and writing" part, I've found it useful to set a daily word goal. Mine is pretty low - I usually go for 350 words per day - but getting a words down every day, even if it's just a few, eventually adds up to a lot!

Fanfic usually isn't my thing - I hate writing other people's characters - but lately I've been writing a lot of stuff set in the world of a webcomic I'm a fan of.

I'm currently posting a Transformers fanfic on Wattpad! Also, I'm doing Rise, which is a warriors based ARPG, so I guess that counts as some one-shots, but I'm not really a fan of the books

      hi !! over the past year i wrote a lot of h/mestuck fanfic, but i'm transitioning into writing my own work now. fandom works can be so rewarding, though - they have that sort of instant muse and gratification that can be hard to find elsewhere. i loved writing fanfiction.

      a good tip that a writing supervisor i had once was to "write what you want to write first". treat your work like a movie in that respect - a movie isn't filmed in order. write your story starting from what you know you can write, or what you're excited to write - and then build around it.

      another thing i'd recommend is doing research on some of the things involving your character. it's easier to write about what you know than filling in the blanks with what you think, y'know?

      other than that, maybe read a bit & see if it gives you some motivation :)

      the best of luck to you !!
