    Yeah, from Minnesota to California, then back.

    Wait…don’t tell me you live in Minnesota! (you don’t have to tell me, lol)

    For the trilogy so far I have Bonds: Purpose, Bonds: Quest, and Bonds: Hope. I’m not certain if they’ll change or stay.

    Nice! I’m already imagining the covers with those names on! It reminds me of a supposed trilogy I wrote (I wrote two books, and it’s nothing like a trilogy): Whispers of the Sea, A Song in the Wind, Murmurs of the Earth (Changed that one’s name, finally disposing of the facade of a trilogy, lol)

    I proved him wrong and am mildly concerned I freaked him out

    Lol! You’re a writer. If you type into the Google search bar, “Why are writers”… it will come up with ten very strange and random things, but “weird” is one, and a very fitting one!

    Unless there’s chocolate on the line XD

    I’d do almost anything for chocolate!

    haven’t figured out what exactly I love about the end yet, but I just do

      That sounds intriguing! I take it was a good ending, at least in one sense of the word?

    We used to, but we left. We actually travel full time in a rv now🙂

    Cool!
    I ditched two different books before I actually started writing. One was going to be about fairies *cringes at young self* the other was going to be about a mermaid named Coral. I looked at the notes I had written on it the other day and… 🤦‍♀️ *dies* like, she was gonna fall in love with a scuba diver… Yes, I was doing The Little Mermaid for grammar. And, of course, the good version where the sea witch cut off the mermaid’s tongue🙂😂

    I’d do almost anything for chocolate!

    Yesssss! Chocolate! Last Christmas we did a “chocolate tour”. In other words, we ended up with a Ton of chocolate from different countries. I’d make myself write or do a school subject before I could eat a piece … sometimes😂

    That sounds intriguing! I take it was a good ending, at least in one sense of the word?

    Yes, it was good. It was the epilogue and it was about even when things are dark and difficult, God will light the way. I like how he worded it and it finished the book nicely🙂

    …Okay. that posted weird, but I’m not going to fix it.

    Yeah, it did. It looks cool though😂

    Pegauony means “winged unicorn.” When I was about seven, I didn’t have any word in my vocabulary for such a creature and was determined to have one, even if I had to make it. In my childish reasoning: pega=Pegasus, u=unicorn, and ony=pony, because pegacorn wouldn’t cut it 😂

    About three years later, I started working on making a language. I can’t look at those early manuscripts without laughing and cringing at the same time XD. It’s been ten years since I started on that, though, and I actually posted a bit about it in the Worldbuilding language/philology room.

    And I’m working on A Tale of Two Cities. 🙂 It’s been quite enjoyable so far.

    @e-n-leonard That’s a good story. Did you finish the language?

     

    🙂 I hope you like it as much as I do. Do you still like it?

    Hi! I’m excited to join SE and meet some other writers! A little bit about me… I play guitar, I’m nearly done with the first draft of my first book, and I love hiking! I also paint rocks to spread The Chosen (a tv. show about the life of Christ). Oh, and I may be a little *cough*, ok, a lot, obsessed with reading. What do y’all like to do? *wanders away hoping I did everything right* lol

    Hello hello!! XD I think we’ve already met some on my intro but I saw yours and thought I would drop in XD

    What genre is your WIP? What is it about?

    Yes!! We need more Chosen fans!! (Mostly we need them to release the next season….our family found and binged all the ones they have….)

    I love reading and rereading my favorite books, finding ways to chat with my fellow writer/reader/authors, drawing horses and walking my dogs.

    🙂

    I wouldn’t say I’ve finished the language, but it has certainly made a lot of progress. Now that I’ve actually learned something about language and grammar, it actually works. Lately I’ve started working on poetry with it 🙂

    I’m still enjoying A Tale of Two Cities, but I haven’t finished it yet.

    I’m sorry, but the first half of A Tale of Two Cities tried to kill me😂. I recently got to a part where it’s a little less boring though, so I may survive it😂


    @sydney

    Hello again! I believe I need to go respond to some things on yours. I’ll have to do that when I get a moment.

    What genre is your WIP? What is it about?

    It is a trilogy in the fantasy genre…

    Bonds: Purpose

    Finnegan Bruinsdale never expected his little sister’s fairytales to come true. That is, until he’s part of one. When his mother and sister are captured by a witch, Finn discovers a portal that leads him to his dead father’s homeland. A place where hope gives people a magical power.

    Finn’s only goal is to rescue his captured family, but God has called him for many great things.

    Is Finnegan ready to accept his calling and overcome his feeling of insignificance, especially when he seems to repeatedly fail?

    Yes!! We need more Chosen fans!! (Mostly we need them to release the next season….our family found and binged all the ones they have….)

    Yeesssss! Always need more (fans and seasons😂)! We’ve seen both seasons at least 3-4 times each. And this is coming from people who don’t watch tv😂. If you want I can some some pictures of the rocks I’ve painting. *cue trying to figure out how to post a picture*

    I love reading and rereading my favorite books, finding ways to chat with my fellow writer/reader/authors, drawing horses and walking my dogs.

    I don’t know how many times I’ve reread favs XD. I think I’ve read some books 10 or more times😂.
    I started a horse sketch a really long time ago. It was going good but I never finished it.
    Walking dogs is the best thing ever when you’re in a campground with little hidden trails XD.

    Also, I believe I saw you on YWW. If so, I’m C. L. on there🙂.

    @e-n-leonard I hope you enjoyed (are enjoying) A Tale of Two Cities all the way to the end.


    @lady-grace
      That is something I’ve heard others complain of. (that A Tale of Two Cities starts out boring.) Seen objectively, it probably is, but I fell in love with his prose, and loved to read what he said, whether or not it was interesting. Also, I don’t believe that he wastes a word. It just starts out seeming like he does. I hope you survive thrive on the rest of it. 🙂

    I have finished it, and A Tale of Two Cities is now officially upon my favorites list. The ending!!!*flails and laughs and cries and doesn’t spoil for C. Leonard*  Definitely no words wasted. The whole thing ties together so well.

    *coughs* I… did not.. I may try again another time, but for now it’s killing me. I want to finish cause the ending sounds good and I hate to leave a book. However, I don’t really have any motivation to do so at this time😔

    @e-n-leonard
    I know! I read the last nine chapters in 3 hours, with recurrence of the same strong emotion! That John 11 quote! How is it possible to switch from past to present tense for the last chapter. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. We must talk about it over tea someday. 🙂

    @lady-grace
    that’s okay. I obviously have no idea how old you are, but for me, I read it in my late teens and wouldn’t have recommended it to myself much earlier. Give it a few years, and try again. 🙂 (But do try it again, someday. 🥰)

    Yes, it was amazing! The writing! The all of it! I’m glad I read it, and I would love to discuss it someday 🙂


    @lady-grace
    probably should give it a few years.

    I eventually finished it cause I hate to leave a book unfinished. The ending was good, but I can’t say it’s a favorite.

    I obviously have no idea how old you are, but for me, I read it in my late teens and wouldn’t have recommended it to myself much earlier.

    Yeah, I would probably like it better in a few years🤔.
