    @crazywriter,

    Really?!? COOL!!!! *sigh* I’d love to do that stuff, but the problem is that a lot of Tolkien’s books have an almost completely male cast. Since half of my youth group is female, that wouldn’t work too well… 🙂 But I can still dream! 🙂

    Wait, Jazzyfresh is here?! Did I miss the re-starting-up of the animal collaborative story (Escape From Ackerley, I think it was called. . .)???

    I told someone that I was going to tag them, so I’m going to do that here if it’s ok with everyone. 🙂

    Don’t cut out Tom Bombadil like they did the movies. He was cool and mysterious. And the Barrow wights. Don’t forget that little adventure before they got the Bree.

    @rusted-knight,

    RIGHT!!!! My sis and I were so disappointed about that. Although I kinda get it with a time crunch. But cut out most of Arwen’s scenes, and you have at least 10 minutes more time. 😐

    @rusted-knight,

    TRQ: have you read the Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson by any chance?

    No I have not read the Wingfeather Saga. I guess I ought to add it to the list.

    @rusted-knight,

    Oh, ok! Yeah, they’re very good, but I’ve noticed that either you don’t like the Saga or you do. I can’t find someone with an in-between. 🙂

    Well Joelle, my sister is playing Aragorn. All you gotta do is throw a bit of mascera or eye shadow on for a beard, get a hat, and BOOM! you got any character you need.

     

    I honestly dont remember Tom Bombadil, though i should as i have read the books. Oh well.

    @joelle-stone

    That’s cool! Is your story a novel?

    I’m in the editing stage for my novella at the moment. Hopefully soonish I might start recruiting some beta readers!

    @abigail-rebekah,

    Yep!

    Recruiting beta readers is always fun. I was hoping to join Ydubs this registration, maybe get some beta readers on there, but things didn’t work out. Maybe next season!

    Yeah, it is a lot of fun!
    Aw, I hope you can join next time!

    Story Embers is good for getting beta readers too, though! I had a few people from on here beta read my short story a while ago. One of the girls in particular was really great at it; her feedback was super helpful!
