      Hello everyone,

      My name is Abby and I am 14 (kinda nearly 15) years old.

      I love writing (obviously) and am super excited to be part of Story Embers.

      My current WIP is a longish kid’s chapter book about the adventures of my very mischievous little brother. Hopefully, I can publish it soonish as I have completed the writing and am now in the editing stage. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Anyway, a few bits about me are:

      I am VERY crazy, just slightly addicted to chocolate and coffee, and love playing my mandolin and writing songs with my sisters and cousin.

      Some of my favourite authors are: John J. Horn, Hope Ann and G. A. Henty.

      Movies/tv shows would be – Blue Bloods, Hacksaw Ridge, Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, and the Book Thief.

      My favourite genres to write in are historical fiction, suspense and mystery and I really like short stories.

      I also am hoping to write a book about a Jewish girl who finds out that her father is working for the Nazis and the choices she has to make to save those she loves.

      P.S. If I get my words muddled up on here, that’s kinda usual.:)

          Hi ๐Ÿ™‚

          Nice to meet you.

          I would like to join a guild at some stage but I don’t think I have enough time for it at the moment.

            P.S. What sort of art do you like doing?

            Yeah, I understand that! Although I’m under the impression that even only popping in once a week is doing better than the majority of guilders. ๐Ÿ˜€ย Not to pressure you into joining before you’re ready or anything.ย Take your time, friend.

            I am an aspiring graphic novelist, so most of the artwork I make is related to one of the stories floating around in my brain. *Mostly drawings of my characters* haha.

            How did you stumble across Story Embers?

              Hi @the-fledgling-artist,

              I will probably join a guild sometime soon, hopefully. I just wouldn’t want to not be active enough on there and have to leave. ๐Ÿ™‚

              Your graphic illustrations sound really cool. If you had to choose, do you prefer art or writing?

              I found out about Story Embers through my sister, @holly-anne, and decided to participate in the competition. And then I properly signed up. I am sooo loving it here.

              How did you find out about Story Embers?

              Oooh, cool! You’ve submitted something to the competition? That’s awesome!

              If your question had been storytelling vs art, I honestly wouldn’t be able to choose, because for me drawing is howย I tell stories. But since you said writing instead of storytelling, It’s a pretty easy choice. ๐Ÿ˜€ I like writing prose, but my allegiance is to art. Aka, graphic novels. XD

              I found Story Embers through another similar website called Kingdom pen. Most of the kingdom penners migrated here, so I did too. That’s the short story haha.

              What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

                Did you submit a story for the competition?

                My allegiance is definitely to writing, now and forever ๐Ÿ™‚

                I also used to be part of Kingdom Pen. The pic competitions were really cool.

                I like to write songs with my sisters and cousin, bake and read if I have found a good book.

                What about you?

                I did not submit anything to the story competition, though it would have been cool if I did! I’m actually pretty new to writing so I didn’t have enough confidence for something like that yet. xD

                When I’m not writing I’m likely drawing haha. I also enjoy reading though! And yk, other human things, like spending time with friends or family, and going for walks. XD

                That’s cool that you write songs! I admire people who pursue musical stuff.

                  That makes sense ๐Ÿ™‚

                  Walks are super fun. My family loves going walking and seeing pretty places around us.

                  Yes, I live in a very musical family so it kinda is in our blood xD

                  Do you play any instruments and do you like music?

                  I play piano and mandolin which is fun.

                  I love music! Though I don’t play any instruments, read notes, and I have an average singing voice at best. xD

                    I guess you are in good company as I can’t read much music or sing very well. I like to sing, but it can go a bit weird sometimes… or a lot of the time LOL. ๐Ÿ™‚ I prefer playing by ear xD

                    Hi and welcome, Abby! I am so thrilled…I FOUND ANOTHER HENTY LOVER!!ย  *hits the ceiling* Wow! This is pretty much a first. XD Have you read all of his books? I have read all of them, most of them 2-4 times. Awesome!! I have some other authors I love on my profile page, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

                    I am 18, and I write mostly his-fic. I’m an avid history reader…his-fic and non-fiction. How about you? Your current WIP story and your want-to-be-WIP sound amazing! Really excellent ideas for sure.

                    @holly-anne

                    Heyo! I don’t think I have met you before. *shakes hand*ย  Are you the older sister? I have three younger sisters, one of whom writes and is on here as well. ๐Ÿ˜€

                      Who is your favourite author?
