      Hello, there my (probably) human friends. 🙂

      I am a nerdy girl who enjoys all forms of the arts. Drawing, writing, reading, dancing, singing… (questionable singing skills, but still singing).

      Someone told me about story embers awhile back, but I didn’t really do anything about it. But then 2020 came along, and quarantine was like “Lona, you better actually do something for this undetermined amount of time that we are stuck in lock down instead of procrastinating away your life and being a lazy little hermit crab.”

      (I talk with myself a lot. :D)

      So I thought, why not writing? Before 2020 I wrote things, but this was just a great excuse to write more. And so, here I am, hoping to improve my writing, have some fun, and get to know all you wonderful people.

        Hi Lona!!!

        Welcome to StoryEmbers!

        My name is Gracie (even though you can see that). What genre do you write in the most? Do you do non-fiction?

        Do you have a cat? If so, is it white? (: Do you have any other pets?

        If you have any questions about StoryEmbers please let me know! I’d love to help.

        Welcome again. (:

          Nice to meet you! Thanks for the welcome!

          Come to think of it I don’t think I’ve ever written non-fiction, aside from journaling, that is. I write fiction, fantasy specifically. How about you? Which is your favorite genre to read and which your favorite to write?

          Oh haha, no. I’ve never had a pet. Lona is just the name of a white cat from a book I like. 😀

          Thanks again for the warm welcome!

            You’re welcome!

            I am writing my first Fantasy right now actually. It has been really fun, creating my own history, and workings for a world… And, yeah,… it’s been fun.

            I write and read mostly in Historical Fiction. Though I read a lot of Non-Fiction too. (:

            What is your Fantasy like? Have you created your own world? What about creatures? Is the world like ours, or incredibly different?

              Ahhh yes! World building is my favorite part of fantasy. Is your fantasy like medieval fantasy? Futuristic?

              Cool! Do you have a favorite time period to write about?

              Yes, I have made my own little universe. I’d say half of it is like our world; there’s knights, and merchants and peasants and normal human things. The other half, is well, not very human haha.

              I actually don’t have that many magical creatures aside from sea dragons. The world itself and its workings is the more mystical part.

                Not far enough back to be medieval, but not close to present day either. Few in Ganiel know how to build towers of stone, but there are a few places that have mastered it. Wood homes (not in urban areas) and stucco homes (in urban areas) are quite common.

                Almost the whole world are farmers or merchants. Cities and rulers employ soldiers. Almost the whole world has a grassy/or pine forest type of feel. There is no magic in my world/universe.

                A favorite time to write about…I don’t really have one. 😀 I haven’t written a story in the same place/time-period yet. But many (outline-to almost publishable) in spread out places/times. (:

                Oooh, sea dragons. The only non-human things in Ganiel are living stars (no one knows), water people made of water (trade regularly with the namus/people), and one type of tree that is alive (believed to be a legend).

                World building has truly been fun. (:

                  Howdy, Lona (I’m nerdy too, btw). I love to draw, read, and write as well! I used to take voice lessons, but now I’m taking an art class and joining an AHG troop. I took a few dance classes too, but let’s just say I’m not a natural 😛

                  And ya know, sometimes talking to yourself is needed, especially when you haven’t seen any other human beings besides those in your family for MONTHS.

                  My writing is not the best, and I have never finished a book. I guess I just like to write in short spurts. *shrugs* Anyway, both of y’all’s fantasy worlds sound so cool! The novel I was trying to work on is a fantasy, too.

                  I hope to see you around!

                    Sounds cool!
                    I’ve wanted to incorporate magic into mine, but then I have to make laws and limits for magic and that’s just hard. Magic is just too magical haha. I’m working on it, though! 🙂

                    Nice! I like your variety. But, wow! Almost-publishable! Mine is an organized mess spread across 5-10 notebooks 2 computer files and a couple of sketchbooks.

                    Living stars? That is awesome. (If someone does know, I’d love to hear the story behind living stars. :D)

                      Hello!

                      Is your name by chance from the wingfeather saga? 🙂

                      That sounds fun! What’s an AHG troop?

                      Fair point. Though, I was talking to myself long before quarantine, so I don’t know if I get to blame it on that haha.

                      Short spurts is great practice! Honestly I’ve only finished one. It was when I was a lot younger, and well, we no longer speak of such things.

                      Oh fun! What is your fantasy like?

                        Is your name by chance from the wingfeather saga?

                        Yes!!! You’ve read it!?! *does little happy dance* awesome! You know how Peet kept getting the Igiby/Wingfeather’s name mixed up? Well, I took it and made it mine 😀

                        AHG stands for American Heritage Girls. Ya know Girl Scouts? Well, I don’t want to compare AHG to them, but most folks know about Girl Scouts. But AHG is focused on guiding and building up godly girls to be godly women; you can earn badges, do community projects, outdoor activites — awesome stuff like that! AHG’s goal is to build women of integrity, and it is strictly for girls — nobody saying they are but they aren’t. This is their mission statement: Building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country.

                        Fair point. Though, I was talking to myself long before quarantine, so I don’t know if I get to blame it on that haha.

                        Well, you could always talk to a doll or something, LOL 😛

                        Short spurts are good! And right?! I have at least a dozen projects on Google from when I was younger, and, well, I guess I’ll treat it like a time capsule and go back to read them when I’m older, XD

                        Oh fun! What is your fantasy like?

                        Well, the world is similar to ours, but there are strange creatures, and a tiny bit of magic, which is all pretty much contained in one object: The Point of Travores. The main continent, Rondona, is where the story takes place. Venedor is a mostly unknown continent across the sea, so it’s pretty insignificant, LOL — except for the fact that it’s the place where the mongrel hounds come from, ordered by The One to be shipped across the sea.

                          Yes, I have! My best friend is super into it and had me read all 4 (-5- including the wingfeather tales), and I don’t regret it.

                          Peet was probably my favorite character, if not Leeli. How about you?

                          Oh, ok, cool! Sounds like a great organization! I wish you luck on your badge earning. 😀

                          Well, you could always talk to a doll or something, LOL

                          True, true. Maybe this is why I need a cat. So I can at least talk to something living.

                          Yeah, old writing is great entertainment as well as practice. Win-win. 😀

                          Nice! And oooh so then I bet there’s a power struggle with people for  The Point of Travores? That is, if it can be held as a possession.

                            Helloooooooooooooo!!! Nice to meet you!

                            I am also a nerdy girl who enjoys the arts!  I write, and write, and read, and play guitar, and sorta sing, and draw, and hike, and the all stuff in-between in my free time.  I play with my six siblings a lot, and I have been photographing my younger sisters who honestly look like child models.

                            I’m writing a fantasy book currently, though I’m considering a historical fiction novel about a boy when the Nazis invade Poland in World War 2.

                            YOU’VE READ THE WINGFEATHER SAGA???!!!!!  I LOVE IT!! I may or may not be slightly obsessed with it, and sing “Yurgen’s Tune” (the song Leeli sang by the cliffs during the dragon day festival) in the shower……

                            *ahem* anyway…

                            You’re writing a story, correct?  What’s it about? How far are you into it?

                            Again, welcome!! (And BTW, I’ve read your “Feedback” page on the Fantasy Writers Forum, and I’m planning to give you my thoughts as soon as I get the time, which is hopefully going to be now 😛 I REALLY loved it!)

                              Hey there! 😀

                              Nice! You can play guitar? I wan to learn, but don’t have the patience. I just stick with piano.

                              Whoa, six siblings! And I thought I was driven crazy with 2…Siblings are great, though.

                              Well I’d say write your fantasy one first, (definitely no biases here haha), but whatever makes you happy. 🙂

                              Yurgen’s tune is a good song! And I mean, why not sing in the shower?

                              Which was your favorite book in the series?

                              Yes, I am. I am 50 typed pages, 4 notebooks and 2 sketchbooks into it, if that holds any meaning to you haha.

                              Oh yay! Thank you so much for reading it! I look forward to hearing your feedback! 😀

                                  Fantasy. I don’t branch out too much, though I have written a little in mysteries.

                                  What genre do you like to write in?

                                  Thanks for the welcome!
