@amaustin Oh, I love your name!😍 Do you pronounce it like Arwen Evenstar from Lord of the Rings?
Baby books can be great…but sometimes they have weird meanings for great names. Do you ever make up meanings for names you invented? I want to sometime.
I usually say my name Air-n-down, but I’m not picky (actually, I say it Are-in-down half the…[Read more]
This is such a good idea (hope that doesn’t count toward my 3 words😂).
I think my MC (at this point) would be: Rough, Wounded, and Searching.
It’s hard to find words for what I admire in him, although I admire a lot.😄 I guess a lot of it could fall under the “rough.”
Hey, I like your plot. Sounds like something I would like reading.😊 I would say spending time to develop the plot and characters would be a great idea, whether or not it’s a total romance. The deeper the characters, the better the relationships will be.
I hope this isn’t too personal, but is your name actually Ari? I LOVE that name.😍…[Read more]
I think it is possible to insinuate too much. When I’m afraid of crossing a “line” and being inappropriate or insinuating, I question whether I would let my parents (they’re always helpful when you’ve gone too far) or one of my younger sisters read it. If not, maybe I need to adjust something.
I love the idea of having the main romance…[Read more]
I haven’t read the Scarlet Pimpernel, although I should because I’d love to read someone “sticking it to” the French Revolution. I remember the Scarlet Pimpernel was mentioned in the Larry Norman song “Without Love (You Ain’t Nothin’)”. Yeah, I’m that old. My future spouse and I actually went to a Larry Norman concert back in the day.
I think the Bible leaves a lot of room for romance…within certain boundaries. I wouldn’t base my romances off many biblical characters for obvious reasons (David, Abraham, Esther, etc.), but I think there are some examples, in the Bible, of what Biblical romance is. Ruth and Boaz are the best example, I believe, but there’s…[Read more]
New Question: Would you rather be feared or respected?
Laurel: “Respected. Fear is a trap.”
Ky: “She’s right. Having your enemies respect you would be the same, or better, than having them fear you.”
Erik: *folds arms, and leans against wall* “I’ve always wanted to be feared.” *grins at Ky* “Especially by him.”
Ky: “Good chance of that,…[Read more]
@literatureforthelight I love fairy-tale retellings! If you’re ever looking for a Beta reader…😉 What prompted you to do a retelling?
I’m currently working on a fantasy novel. So far, the main things I’ve been working with are hard choices, distrust, a man twisted by lies, a angry prince, a gold-hearted princess, a horse named Bruce, and a bunch…[Read more]
Hey there. I’d be interested in being your buddy.
I can’t say I bring much to the table…I’m only starting also (about halfway through my first novel). I don’t know much about editing or anything, but I can give suggestions for what feels/sounds better to me as a reader with an objective view.
I don’t have a ton of time on my hands…[Read more]
I can’t answer your question for sure at the moment, I’m still working it out.😄 Whatever looks better, sounds better, and is more grammatically correct, I guess.
So nice to meet you then! What stories are you working on at the moment?
Btw. thanks for explaining the Panster/Plotter thing.😄 It’s hard to pin down meanings.
I’m a fan of simple wording. I believe my first line is: “Where the mountains meet.”
I don’t have any experience, or a lot of advice on author bio’s, but I think something that I find appeals to me is someone who is straight-forward, funny, and informative.
You’re talking about a real, true human being (yourself), so make it sound like that. Be relatable to other people…so that readers not only feel that they can…[Read more]
@literatureforthelight *waves* Hey, have we met? I’m just curious, because I happen to be a Grace also, so I kinda got a soft spot for them.😁
This is a great question.
What I did was to start a novel that I viewed as “less important”…to just kinda get some experience. I need to get an idea of how writing a novel works, and…[Read more]
Oh yeah, I forgot about the Scouring of the Shire. That is a good part. Even if the movie had just kept part of it…😉 Yeah, I hope people would appreciate dear old Frodo more (apparently Frodo and I have the same personality, so I think I “get” him a bit more than other people).
Have you read any of Tolkien’s other Middle Earth…[Read more]
Would you rather forget who you are every time it rains, or never be able to remember why you walked into a room?
Enan: *looks serious* I’ve never forgetting who I am again. I’ll take any other option.
Ella: We can’t all pick the same one. I’d forget who I was every time it rained. *grins at…[Read more]
@Dakota Thanks for the tag!
Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing?
Erik: “Vision, obviously. Even if you’re in the dark you can tell what’s going on, or who’s sneaking up behind you.”
Ky: “I’d lose my vision.”
Laurel: “Vision as in seeing? Or as in your hopes?”
New Question 2 – Would you rather always say everything on your mi…[Read more]
Ahh…those are some good moments. My favorites have to include Gandalf and the Bullrog, Aragorn and Legolas’s argument in Helm’s Deep, every scene with the Rohirrim in it (the horses😄), and Boromir’s death (not because of Boromir…because of how awesome Aragorn is).
I’m afraid (or rather, proud) I’m on the Frodo fan side of things.…[Read more]
Wow! Your story sounds absolutely amazing! Epic fantasy, princesses and farm kids, it sounds just like something I would love to read.
And yeah…my first chapters don’t really make sense either, but I figure that’s part of story writing.😄
Favorite books? The Wingfeather Saga is the best, but I also love Little Women, Anne of Gre…[Read more]
Just popping in to say hi *waves*
I’m wondering what you’re WIP is about? What genre is your favorite?
Currently I’m writing a Young Adult fantasy novel (I’m on Chapter 32 or something…) about a wizard who hates wizardry, an angry prince, and (one of my favorites) a horse named Bruce, and what brings them all together toward a…[Read more]
I know this isn’t exactly a “writing” topic, but since Lord of the Rings is one of the best stories ever written, and arguably the best film trilogy ever produced, I think it fits into writers talk.
I have a few questions to ask (just to get opinions), but don’t be afraid to ask your own, or to gush about that one scene in the movie.😄
Question 1…[Read more]
