@selah-chelya Thanks! ^_^ And I will! I await anxiously to find out! 🙂 And oof, i feel that. What are some of your favorite WIP’s you have?
@cassie-hartfinh Awesome! When I get some time I’ll check those out and ask! Say hi to Starscream for me ;P
@nuetrobolt Thanks! He’s adorable 😛 lol. And yeah! Though, I must confess I haven’t ready the LOTR series, only the Hobbit. I have a hard time with long and lengthy sentences so it wasn’t really my cup of tea, per-say. Then again, I did try to read the LOTR series when I was a lot younger than I am now. Maybe when I catch some time I’ll try my hand at it again!
@julia thanks! I’m excited to see everything this site offers! 🙂June 10, 2019 at 8:32 pm #91175
Ah, the world’s most terrible question…the one with no answer! 😛
I have a lot of them, but not really any favorites, per say. I mean, the ones that are more developed are my favorite right now because I know the characters in them better, but that doesn’t go for much. XD If I had to pick one, maybe Unquenchable, my longest and most intensive book in some ways. And the one that I have written the first ten chapters of, Out of the Ashes. Or the futuristic one I am doing with my sister (yep, that’s @ashira), Raen. I love them all, though! 🙂
Do you have a fav? And did I already mention that pretty much all I write is his-fic? All my WIP’s are, except the aforementioned co-authored book and one or two wanna-be nonfiction historical ones, hehe!

@noodle-mum, Vip tells me to thank you. The hobbit is as good or maybe even better than LOTR. LOTR is hard, but it is definitely worth the read.
I'm J. S. Brink, Throne Warden of Emberia, or Nuetrobolt. I write with my tiny dragon, Vip.June 11, 2019 at 4:05 am #91192
I’d have to say it’s about the same for me. My favorite, at the moment, is the one I’m currently working on 😛 It’s work in progress title is ‘The Four Relics’. I haven’t finished it yet, but I have gotten around 50,000 words down for it ^_^ That’s so cool that you write his-fic! I find I’m better at Fantasy type things, as well as YA occasionally. Honestly, I tend not to think about Genre, unless I’m playing off the Genre tropes (like for my book about superheroes) or when I’m actually striving to see what makes this specific genre good and bad (like with my current WIP). It’s something I’m learning to do, lol
Unquenchable sounds super interesting! As does Out of the Ashes and Raen! Do you mind telling me more about them? 🙂 Oh! And do you have a favorite (or a couple favorites ;P) character you’ve written before?
@neutrobolt I’ll definitely have to check out LOTR again. I know all my friends have read them, and they usually quote it or make jokes about it. 😛 What other authors are you interested in?June 11, 2019 at 9:57 pm #91247
Steward of the Pen
@noodle-mum Neat! I’m a fantasy fan too, and that’s mainly what I write. I haven’t read any of those authors, though. What do you like best about them?
Yes! Having characters learn to overcome their lies is always such a good thing. We pretty much all believe lies about something, so that character arc can really resonate with us even if we aren’t necessarily struggling with that particular lie.
Most of my stories have had the theme of friendship in some form or another, and also themes of hope, redemption, and second chances. They all tend to tie together well and there are lots of angles to view them from, so I love exploring them in my stories.
Ooh, naming the inner critic is a great idea. I think I shall have to try that. 😛June 12, 2019 at 8:13 pm #91304
@steward-of-the-pen 😀 Awesome! And honestly, it’s the characters that they write that really pulls me to their books. It’s not really plot-wise what happens (Though the plot can be super thick and that adds so much to it!) but it’s the characters striving for different goals, and forming friendships, and growing like real people would, that really brought me to the particular books they wrote.
That sounds awesome! What’s your current WIP?
It’s definetly helped me battle the inner critic (AKA: Wilbur. I’ll have to tell you how I came up with that sometime XD cause ooo boy it’s a story) and keep him at bay. 🙂 It also helps to create a kinda backstory for how the Inner Critic came to be.June 14, 2019 at 5:07 pm #91469
Yeah, I totally get that! 🙂
I don’t have any, like, overviews or anything for those books, but if you want to you are welcome to read the first 5 chapters of Out of the Ashes that I have written and on a Google Doc right now. (I have 10 chapters done, but I write them all out in notebooks before transferring to a Doc, so I just have the 5 right now. 😀 ) I can email you the access link if you have time and would like to read it, though! I have paused writing it, so if you want to read the chapters you will have to wait a few months for the rest of the book, lol.
Raen, the futuristic coauthor book, is an outside-the-box world that we are writing as if it were in the actual future, and are working on finishing as our first publication. Beyond that, I am not sure how to describe it… XD
Unquenchable is a colossal project that I love to death! The female MC is super similar to me, and the plots are so me, it makes it crazy fun to write about. 🙂 And it is a tremendous working progress that will likely take longer than any of my other books… There are a lot of themes and interwoven plots and subplots, and Iraqi deserts, tribes, etc cross with abortion and lots of other subjects. It’s got a couple of different main themes that are really mysteries, as well, which I love. Yeah, it’s fun and crazy! 😀
I don’t think I could star any characters above others…they are all unique, with their own personalities and differences, and I love them all. I do really love Giorgia, the little girl character in OOTA, though…she is such a breath of fresh air in a rather intense book!
