I love your stories! Do you have any advice for G/T beginning writers?

arc852:

 Thank you! I’m not the best at giving advice, but I’ll try my best! (I’m really sorry if these are all terrible or not what you asked for…)

  • The first thing to figure out is what sizes your characters are. Since Gt just means interaction between two or more people of extreme size differences, and there are a lot of options. One could be a giant while the other is human. One could be a borrower or a fairy, or even a human who was shrunk. But it’s good to get what species your characters are first and foremost. (I usually go for the borrower option, I just find that the most fun)
  • Now this next one is more of an opinion and does all depend on the character and you, of course, but there should be a factor of fear within the ‘tiny’ character towards the ‘giant’ character. Unless they have known each other for a long time, even then, there might still be an underline of fear.
  • Descriptions are your best friend when writing Gt scenes. Usually this happens in the tiny’s pov, with things like describing what it’s like sleeping on a giant chest, or describing how it feels to have a giant looming over you and being in their shadow. How they feel more than hear a laugh. But descriptions are also important in the giant’s pov, with describing the feeling of having the tiny in their hands for the first time, or the first time they try to ‘hug’ them. Things like that.
  • It’s good to have a clear size in your head for your giant and/or tiny character. Personally, I like the tiny being around 4 to 6 inches tall in comparison to the giant (meaning, an actual giant would be around 65 feet tall I believe, don’t quote me on that). It’s perfect handheld size, while not being too big or small. Though, again, that is just my preference and you are perfectly fine with going bigger or smaller than that. Just know that if you decide to make your character a borrower, they are 4 to 6 inches tall, according to the books and movies.
  • There are a lot of Gt cliches and it is perfectly fine if you use them.

 That’s all I have for the moment, I hope these helped!

I tagged these people, just in case they have anything to add to this. Also check them all out for some top-notch Gt writing examples. 

 Also feel free for anyone else to add to this 🙂
