Some Help For Those Authors That Find Writing Hard

So writing is hard, guys. Really hard. I've been having a lot of my own frustrations of late. My mother disagreed when I tried to explain this to her, but there really are no new plots. None. Only new ways to present a plot. That's a problem I've been faced with: how do I make something unoriginal into something completely new and original? It's hard to write. It's hard, and nobody understands. Well, no one except for another writer!

So I have some good resources that I am willing to share. Use them if you like, or not. At least you will know of them.

The first resource I'd like to share is a blog called Go Teen Writers. The Article here is called "36 Plot Ideas for Your Novel." This is what is currently helping me. I have an idea of what I want to write about. I know what I want to do for my original novel yet I need some sort of framework to put the ideas in, and it's just very hard for me. But this makes it a lot easier, and it's really something worth looking at.

The next resource I'd like to mention is called "Seventh Sanctum." This is a beautiful website, truly. I won't go too in depth, and leave the site as a nice little surprise for you. But I will say that there are many categories: anime/manga, characters, writing, beings, equipment and more... And then you click on one of those and BOOM. A bunch of other things to click on come up! So many categories for a million generators! I'm not even exaggerating. That website has to have over thirty generators. It's wonderful for getting ideas for a story. A word of warning: I personally think you would get full enjoyment out of the site if you were inclined toward anime/manga, horror, fantasy or sci-fi. Or all of them, that works, too. I cannot praise this website enough.

One other website I would suggest, though, is TV Tropes. I suggest this not without some hesitation and much forethought. I believe this is only useful if you have thought of symbolism you would like to use. You like a certain object, feature or idea and you're thinking, "Man, it would be great if I could use this as some sort of symbol. But would it just go over everyone's head?" While yes, it does entirely depend upon how you write it, you could also check up on whatever it is to see if it's a "trope." It's also nice to use just for the sake of curiosity, and if you're on that site long enough you may even get some ideas for symbolism you wouldn't have thought of before.

While these are not all of the resources that I utilize, these are the ones that I truly think others could use. I do hope this helps!
