Okay, guys, I just was at Kingdom Pen for the first time in forever and there’s this glorious new post up.
We can do this.
It can come back.
I’m like … melting all the chairs with Snapper fire over here cause so excited.
Here’s a link to the survey. Return of the Kingdom?

WE CAN RESURRECT THE KINGDOM???
It’s been so dead over there. No thanks to me, unfortunately.
But if we could bring it back that would be so amazing.

I have missed my Kapeefer fam so much; I hope Reagan decides to resurrect everything.

@snapper Thank you <33
I filled out the form and offered to volunteer. I want to see the Kingdom rise again 😀
Btw, how have you been??? Work stole my life this summer, then college refused to be any more lenient this fall. Thus I haven’t been reading any blogs for months 😛 How has writing been?

Is there a fundamental difference between KP and Story Embers?

@morreafirebird Same! Kingdom Pen was so amazing. <3
Aww, you’re so sweet to ask. <3 I’ve been great, honestly. This past year I’ve really learned how to enjoy writing again, as well as blogging itself. I have to say that it’s been a great year. How about you? I’ve missed talking to you, though I totally understand the whole job then school thing. XD

@toklaham-veruzia I would say so. I’ve always had a deep connection to Kingdom Pen, though a large part of that is probably due to the fact that I grew up as a writer there. There are other differences, some minor, some larger, but imo, they aren’t the same thing. Yes, there are similarities, but Kingdom Pen is very unique.

@toklaham-veruzia yes, there definitely is. I think the difference lies in the target audience of each website. Story Embers is aimed at Christian writers in general, with the mission to help them better fulfill that calling as a Christian storyteller. Kingdom Pen was aimed at young Christian writers, below 25. While there was a focus on learning how to be a better Christian writer, I felt that the site mainly gave advice on how to write better, along with addressing specific struggles of younger writers.
In general, I felt that Kingdom Pen was the place to go if you were a young writer who just wanted to focus on perfecting your craft and do it in a serious yet light-hearted community of other young Christian writers. I feel like Story Embers is a bit more serious than that and is digger deeper to unveil some more complex topics, like what makes past Christian stories so much better than most today. That vision and the general vibe of this community are amazing and invaluable to me. However, I am thankful that when I began taking my writing more seriously, I had a place like Kingdom Pen to go to.

@snapper that’s wonderful! Learning to love writing and blogging again is a huge accomplishment 😀
I feel like this year has been a big learning experience. You know, figuring out “adulting” and how to keep doing what I love even as life picks up pace. So I wouldn’t say I’ve had the most enjoyable year, but I feel like I’ve learned a ton that will help me moving forward. I would compare how I’m doing to what a character is feeling after the climax of a novel: triumphant but tired xD
