    Hi guys! I haven’t seen you in a while, just wanted to hear if you’re doing well, I miss you!

    @ally-renee

    That’s alright! Don’t worry about it. 🙂

    Yeah, we did have fun! It doesn’t reassure me about learning to drive though. My younger sister has been nagging me about it saying she wants me to get my license so I can drive her places and I’m just like, “Are you kidding? I’ll crash into a stopsign at 5mph and still kill us both.” XD

    Oh…[Read more]

    Hello, friend!

    Oof, exams. They’re so… “fun” XD

    Ah, yes, I’m looking forward to it!!!! A lot!!!! (Did you hear the sarcasm? XD)

    My job is going really well so far! I work at Chick-fil-A now, so if I start saying “my pleasure” at the end of everything, that’s why   I’m really enjoying working there, and my coworkers are so fun!

  • @ally-renee that’s actually a really good one. 🙂 Btw, I really like that picture of Penny (I believe that’s who you said it was) did you draw it?

    Probably…uhhhh, Finn.

    Who would be most likely to freak out when they only have one bar of service? XD 

    There’s no technology in my world, but I could see the mermaids being like that.

    @ally-renee

    Yeah, life is pretty crazy. But, only twoish months until summer break so at least there’s that. 🙂

    I can see where you’re coming from with that, but personally, I’m more of a do “whatever works, keeps the peace, and doesn’t blow anything up” type of person. XD

    Oh lol, good for you! My dad and I played some Mario Kart together over…[Read more]

    Hi Ally, sorry it took so long to reply. I can totally relate to school taking up a lot of time XD I’m getting ready for exams in a couple of months and it’s kinda stressful XD

    How do you like your job so far? What is it, if you don’t mind telling? Totally fine to ignore that if you’d rather not say 😉

    I totally recommend it! I mean,…

    Hi!

    Oh, I understand that. I wouldn’t want to give him my name either. Wow, her powers are so cool! I am very much hoping over here that I can met them!

    Yeah, the problem with having more than one POV. But if you do fall into that trap, there are many ways to fix it! Sometimes it takes revising and editing to make the POVs…[Read more]

    Hi again!

    My word I keep telling myself I’m going to do better with responding, but life does not seem to be helping me out with that. Second semester is always crazier than the first. XD

    Oh huh, I think I’d rather talk. I think I especially wouldn’t mind if I just got to make it up as I went, because when I’ve done speeches I was…[Read more]

    Oh, wow, I really love the sound of this sibling relationship! It sounds realistic and cool and something I could easily adore. <3 😀

    That’s good! It is something to be proud of. 🙂 Oof, first drafts are fun, am I right? But the best thing is that you can fix it (why I love all of the drafts after the first draft X…[Read more]

    Hi Ally!

    you can tell that the first book or two was/were intended for a younger audience, and then as the story progresses, it becomes more… I want to say mature, but not in the bad meaning XD Like, it’s not all like a kids book… if that makes any sense LOL.

    Awesome! That happens quite a lot in series, I notice. I’m determi…[Read more]

    @rose-colored-fancy

    Oh, I never thought about it before, but the inside jokes in the fandom are actually really fun! I do enjoy them too! It is great that you can say a random thing out of context and people get it!

    Thank you! It is pretty great since it is such a personal thing to Smoke and for this book particularly I think it needs something…[Read more]

    Ah, it might have been Alabama Rose’s blog cause I’ve never even heard of The Young Writers Worship. Okay, I might check out it, though I won’t join cause I really don’t have the money for it right now.

    It does depends on the story! My other novel was easier to write. This current one is such a big mess and it is making the story hard to…[Read more]

    @ally-renee

    Hi Ally!

    I give Alex and Penny more, eh, “severe-ish” as a two-for-one special with their scars XD Alex has, like, PTSD and Penny has constant nightmares. But everyone gets scars; no one gets to feel left out LOL.

    Yes! They’re all treated equally in that aspect! *Evil chuckle* Liorah and another character have PTSD in the second boo…[Read more]

  • Rose replied to the topic Hello all! in the forum Introduce Yourself 1 year, 5 months ago

    @ally-renee

    Hi Ally!

    And I totally agree with the whole having lasting reminders of their injuries or whatnot. I give that to Penny and Alex in later stories (mwahahaha XD). Let’s just say I’m cruel to my characters LOL

    That’s awesome! Liorah and Ziyad both have more than their fair share of scars, and so do Acyn and Sahar!

    That’s so cool! If yo…

    Hello! 😀
    Lol, no judgement here. My parents are both linguists and yet still I struggle with English spelling/grammar/everything. XD

    Haha what is with our nerves that singing alone is so weird? Like talking to myself, I do that all the time. (Alone and not alone, it drives people a little crazy sometimes XD) But singing is so…[Read more]

    Hi Ally!

     I have written and rewritten the first chapter of Elemental sooooo many times before I decided that outlining and actually planning might be useful LOL.

    I can’t agree more! I’m on the fourth rewrite of my first chapter, and this is only the second draft. I’m still not completely happy with it though… Oh well, we’ll get th…[Read more]

  • @ally-renee

    Liorah and Gavril, definitely! Liorah teases all her friends.

    Who’s most likely to climb a tree?

    Hi friend!

    So sorry for the late response! Getting back into school and adding more school on top of it is sometimes difficult, ya know? XD

    I totally get that! I have the exact same thing! XD

    Ikr? I find that annoying too :/ This is why we, as authors, can break the cycle XD

    IKR! That’s the coolest part of being an author! The book is…[Read more]

  • I don’t have a lot of characters fleshed out for my current book yet, but, come to think of it, either Weslow or Clench would come up with that idea — and then they would probably drag their entire company into the theater with them 😛 That was a great question, @ally-renee !
