Hey! Just popped in to say hi. I’m Gracie, teenage fantasy writer and cat lover.
I saw that you like Old Westerns…they’re a weak point of mine too. I used to want to marry Roy Rodgers when I was little (even though he was already dead when I was born). What are some of your favorites? I’ve always loved My Pal Trigger (Roy Rodgers) and…[Read more]
Enneagrams! *barely constrains myself from geeking out*
Abbie Emmon’s was actually the one who introduced me to enneagrams also. And they’re so useful, aren’t they?
I have characters with nearly every number in the list…but my MC’s are a 5 (wing 8?) and an 8.😂. Personally, I am a 4w5.
I think you nailed Katniss. I just got to read…[Read more]
Goodnesss.🤣 You were so much closer than you thought.
1) Name: Promise Wetterling (very old-timey)
2) Age: Around 65 😁 You were like spot-on.
3) Career/Role in Story: Warrior/Head of Secret Service. So yes, she’s an older woman who’s getting back into the adventure. Not so much in fighting, but in leading. She is the g…[Read more]
@erynne This is so cool. And fun.
@rose-colored-fancy Let me see… (probably gonna ruin this)
1) Name: Something soft, but with a lot of heart to it. Like Ella, Gwendolyn, or Lilia.
2) Age: Either early teens or early twenties.
3) Career/Role in Story: Side character, probably a supporting role
4): Personality: Quite, intuitive, a lover of…[Read more]
This is such an important topic. Thanks Rose!
@olivia Yay! How’s life going for you? I saw that you are taking writing really seriously (every day) now. Good job! I’ve been trying to take it seriously, but it’s hard (long) work. I’m supposed to be finishing my first draft in August.
You’re an INFP? *high fives* So am I!
Just out of curiosity, what does having this personality mean to you? I don’t know a lot of people with my personality (besides Anne Shirley, Frodo Baggins, Shakespeare, Tolkien, and other great dreamers I never got to meet😊) and it’s fun to see what other people see us as, and how we view…[Read more]
@irishcelticredflowercrown *clapping* Yes! Don’t let all the humans die…we’re not perfect, but we’re fascinating.😉
@dakota *trying not to cry* Love this so much. Now I’m itching to touch the darker side of the Outrider’s arc…
I had an idea (inspired by @rose-colored-fancy ‘s thread😉) that might be fun.
Tell us your plot in as few words as possible, while still including the whole thing. Dialogue (either from your story, or made up) is a fun way to do it.
If you aren’t sure about the plot (or just want to do something else) you can also do character arc in as few…[Read more]
I was sceptical at first…but it looked like too much fun.😂
– Old wizard tries to keep his friends from killing sulky outlaw.
– Or: Sulky outlaw tries not to be helped by old wizard and saved from all old wizard’s friends (but totally fails😝).

I find that whenever I’m alone, I work through scenes, building character voice (out-loud😁), and filling in details from my surroundings.
I also work to find story everywhere…learning how story effects media, dinner, how-to books, laundry, and even how we talk. Our whole society is practically built off of story.
Thought I’d run a “future” book idea by you guys.
This is probably going to sound terrible, but…😂
Damien is just a farm-boy, until his uncle is murdered by a government Tracker. Damien kills the murderer, out of self defence, and is forced to flee. Now an outlaw, hunted by the Emperor, Damien begins to realize that most of what he knew about…[Read more]
Hello Tanya! Welcome! So nice to see another Canadian here (there’s a few of us😊).
I’m Gracie, a teen writer and artist from a little further north. I love Jesus, cats, Lord of the Rings, and am currently reading Ben Hur. What is your favorite book/story?
My current work is a fantasy book about what it means to leave a legacy,…[Read more]
Also…how does yours work, Skylarynn?
I think most of my countries would do it in a similar manner…an adoptive family, orphanage worker, or other care-taker would name them, and that’s what they would go by. Some may never have surnames, and some would just take the ones of the people they were in the care of.
Unfortunately, in some cultures, they probably don’t take…[Read more]
Such a good question! All of a sudden I’m like, “Wait, how do they…”
I’m gonna have to think about it and get back.😁
Sounds cool to me. I love fairy-tale retellings, so I might be a little biased.😄
I’m wondering what the point of her being an illegitimate daughter is. Is it going to be important later in the story? Also…just a random idea…what if she wasn’t actually illegitimate, but her father was hiding her true identity?
Can’t wait…[Read more]
Ya’ll are so good.🤩
*doing a mental checklist of how many my stories do or don’t have*
I think we could see more good sibling relationships. And healthy parent-child relationships.
I also really want to see more of the “left behind” side of romantic relationships. The friends who are no longer the most important in…[Read more]
