    @sarafini

    Hi, my name is Sarafini (Sara) and I’m new. Technology is the worst sometimes. I sent in my submission back in October, I believe. I never heard back so I tried again a couple weeks later. Still didn’t hear back so around Thanksgiving I tried for a 3rd time and meanwhile I heard about KP so I sent in my submission to that. I got an email back from Story Embers saying I already had an account so I logged in only to find it said I didn’t have an account, so I gave up (Idk why I didn’t think to email them back *facepalm*). Meanwhile I set up an account on KP. I finally decided to resend in my submission 1 more time this morning and here I am! I write Sci-fi (a couple of my WIPs are in this genre) 1 fantasy/contemporary WIP, 4 Thrillers and I’m hoping to give His-fic and non-fiction a try. I will never write horror and the only romance will be on the side. I’m a recent graduate and almost an adult (although I don’t want to be). Can’t wait to write with y’all. I’m very goal-oriented so if you ever want to keep track of monthly writing goals with me I’d love to do it. I do it on my own but it’s way more fun with other people.

    I know how to do the tagging thing but have no idea who to tag btw. Lol

    @sarafini It’s so nice to have you here!  I’m sorry about the relative lack of activity :'(  SE goes through cycles of being furiously active, and then hardly active at all.  Last summer was crazy, so I’m assuming that people start returning as school ends 🙂  For now though…

    What kinds of topics are you interested in?  There’s not much right now, but as it starts picking up again I can keep an eye out for discussions you might like (also for when I want to start a new thread.)  Do you like writing games?

    What’s your current WIP about?

    You can tag people by typing @ and then their tag (not their name.) So for me, my tag is @calidris even though I changed my name.  You can quote people by highlighting a section of their text, and clicking on the “quote” label on top of their post.  Hope this helps!  And welcome to SE!

    That’s alright. It’s the calm before the storm I guess. Lol

    Uh, I’m not exactly sure. I’m pretty new to this even though I’m coming up on my 3rd year anniversary of taking writing seriously. Lol

    I love writing games!

    My Sci-fi series is about 3 teens who have to stop a mind control scheme. They aren’t related and 1 of them has a dad in the FBI.

    My Thriller series is about a 12 year old girl (named Jasmine) who’s dad is in the FBI. Her mom is a con-artist basically and kidnaps her to try to get revenge and something she wants from her ex-boyfriend (she and Jasmine’s dad aren’t married).

    @sarafini Those stories sound really interesting!  I’ve sometimes wondered about writing a contemporary story…but I think I love the historical aesthetic too much XD  We’ll see!

    I’ll tag some people I know!  I’m not sure how many will respond (since the forum has been pretty quiet) but I’d love for you to get to know some people here <3

    Helloooo @sarafini nice to meet you!

    This is giving me a good excuse to come back on here😅

    Your stories sound awesome! I like contemporary stories too, though it generally depends on the type of story being told. I love fantastical elements too much, so sci fi and fantasy are my favourites, but thrillers and mysteries are cool too XD

    Hi! I’m excited to meet someone new (I’ve been talking to E G for a bit) Quite a username. Lol Nice to meet you too! I have 1 fantasy project in the works but it’s contemporary and allegorical too. Lol Thanks. I like them. The line between fantasy/Sci-fi is so thin. I’m hoping some fantasy writers can give me advice and help on the Sci-fi stories. Idk if there are a lot of Thriller writers here but I’m hoping some will be active in the next years (hoping to be around for a bit and active lol) I’m on here.

    Hiiii fellow thriller writer!!!!!! *bowls over with a hug* Your WIPs sound cool!!! I do fantasy-thriller right now but I have a couple sci-fi thriller short-stories too!!

    I sent in my submission back in October, I believe. I never heard back so I tried again a couple weeks later. Still didn’t hear back so around Thanksgiving I tried for a 3rd time and meanwhile I heard about KP so I sent in my submission to that.

    Haha yeah!! It was a bit of a debacle for my brother and I when we set up an account too lol.

     

    *bows dramatically* A pleasure to meet you madam I can’t wait to write with you and learn more about your stories and characters lol!! What are some of your favorite special interests/hobbies? <3

    @This-is-not-an-alien

    Yay! So many new faces (obviously tagging is the way to go lol) You’re a hugger?!? I love those people! <3 I always feel so awkward around my friends because I never know if they’re huggers unless they hug me 1st (They probably feel the same way). Lol. Anyway, good to meet you. Stumbles back as she hugs back

    Um, besides writing, I read, play video games, play outside (swinging and shooting hoops [my cousins will sometimes do 3 on 3 or 4 on 4 with me and my siblings]), draw (dot to dot or tracing not free hand lol), color, and volunteer in my homeschool community and church (kids are my biggest thing lol [obviously I’m obsessed with parenthesis 😉])

    How about you? What’s your WIP about?

    What’s your WIP about?

    It’s a dystopian about a ballerina learning that letting go of control and trusting God leads to joy. Her activities include attempting to stop a revolution while hiding both Church and science secrets from the government to keep her friends safe.

    Your WIPs sound intriguing, especially the sci-fi one! I’d love to hear more about it if you want to share 😄
