Hemingway makes your writing bold and clear.
Basically the coolest little tool to have as a writer.
This is awesome!!!
Riots vary widely.
- What it Looks Like: It might start out as a peaceful protest and law enforcement might be the ones who start the riot. This is common. Riots can be small or large. They can be in a small space or they can spread out over a large area. There might be looting in stores, people running away, people lying in the street, people climbing things to get away from whatever is on the ground. Look for some videos of riots and find one that is similar to yours.
- What it smells like: It might not smell like anything out of the ordinary. It might smell like blood or like a certain gas. Your character, if in a tight space, might smell sweat and other people.
- What it sounds like: Again, this can vary. It might be loud and it might not be. People might be screaming or shouting. There might be gunfire or people falling on the ground or car alarms going off. Like I said above, looking at videos of riots can help you with this.
- How they end: This depends on the technology and what law enforcement is allowed to use. Do they have protective gear? Guns? Pepper spray? Gas of some kind? Tanks? Swords? Knives? Clubs? Whips? Magic? Do they arrest people or just chase them away? Do they attack them? Do people run away in fear or do they stand their ground until they are all injured or arrested?
I would also suggest personal accounts of riots on sites like experience project.
On the subject of protests: Cracked.com recently ran an article in which they interviewed some folks who were a part of a major Ukranian protest movement that interested writers might like to read.
This is a small list of website links to look at when writer a story or even a starter for roleplaying. Want to know how to describe something or someone? Check out this list.
Slapstick: physical humor, as in humor found from physical stimuli or physical reactions. Ex: farts, sex, AFV, pie to the face, Three Stooges.
Sarcastic: double-entente humor, as in humor based off of the ironic difference between literal and intended meaning. Ex: Bert and Ernie, Squidward, 9th Doctor, Sam Winchester
Subtle: dry or deadpan humor, as in humor which is found by an unaffected delivery of emotional or radical subject material. Ex: Mikasa, Jeff Dunham, Sheldon, Phil Coulson, Castiel
Satirical: ridiculing humor, as in humor which seeks to mock faults in the status quos or belief systems. Ex: Deadpool, SNL, Monty Python, Springtime with Hitler
Sardonic: dark humor, as in humor which plays off of tragic events to create a grim irony. Ex: Cruel Irony, “Laugh to keep from crying”, Shakespeare, Olaf the Snowman
-Now, keep in mind that people can have one or many of these types of humors, and often can appreciate one or many types of humor. Its good to give a character some funny aspects to them, and hopefully this little cheat sheet will help you decide what kind of aspects that might be.-
it’s good to be well-informed when writing fanfictions and such and i hope this helps u guys out!!!
