Ahhhh …. A good point @noah-cochran
I actually had a micro-conversation on this a few days ago. Basically, a friend asked me if there are any books with magic systems that are actually scientific in their world. And I responded with, yes, there are many, however, we generally use the term ‘magic’ as to would be what is magic in our world (even…[Read more]
My condolences <3
I had a feeling Isa was older than Faye. Sometimes birth order doesn’t need to be specifically introduced (or at least not all at once). And I wasn’t sure what had been introduced in an earlier scene (if Isa is in the previous scene, then it all makes sense).
So Faye is right in the middle, but she’s very shy, especially at t…
I read Faye – it is wonderful. I love the character introductions; all have their quirks yet they interact nicely.
With that, Juni finally sat. Her moment of glory was over.
I loved that her moment was to deliver ‘big news’ as opposed to the news itself.

Searched for sanity. Found friends instead.
Thanks @obrian-of-the-surface-world … I’ll have to work on a scene with Magenta then 😉
Shibby used to play tag with the bush turkeys. And they would stand around her, looking out, to protect her when she slept. And they’d all sit in a line.
They’re weird, but they played nice.
Chicken is a lovely green colour. She has learned to train Hubby to feed her treats (she loves jam).
Feed treats and I won’t bite.
Thank you 🙂
My cat’s name is Shibby (husband named her … and the parrot ‘Chicken’). Although we don’t have squirrels, Shibby did command an army of (5?) bush turkeys. At the current house, she dislikes any other animal (esp. cats) coming close though. Does Patches get on well with other animals?

Thank you 🙂
“The cats and their human toys…” Too “puppetmaster” creepy?
Looks like my cat with her tent tunnel and my husband. She feigns sleep and he pats her… instead she grabs his hand with her claws, and tries to drag him in with her. He keeps going back to play with her though.
Cat lures husband to play. Attack!
Hi @imwritehere1920 & everyone else here 🙂
(I’ve only joined the Story Embers forums recently.)
@obrian-of-the-surface-world mentioned this particular forum to me – looks like you’re all having fun playing (being scouted out by?) with the squirrels. There are no squirrels where I am, but I’m pretty sure there’s a possum living in the…[Read more]
Thank you 🙂
If it helped inspire you for any writing, that’s awesome!
Thank you! (for both the challenge & the feedback~)
I will definitely add to this story, based on your response (more of Jade’s thoughts & struggles/fears, a little more on the school setting, character…[Read more]
Ooh I liked it 🙂 And I loved all the bits that relate to wind (like Life Breather and Breathed).
1. Is there anything that stood out to you as intriguing about this scene?
I loved the clearness of the writing of the moment it portrayed.
2. What would you say the mood was of this scene?
Tendrils of love,…[Read more]
Here’s my first go at this – it’s a story about a student in my WIP, the year before my WIP. After hearing it read out loud, pretty sure I missed areas I could have expanded.

Jade was used to changing schools. Although the rumours about her weren’t that…[Read more]
@writergirl101 – I’ll give this one a shot too 🙂

1) Name: Addison, Marilyn, Mary-Anne. Something kind of long but classical, or maybe something short and spunky, like Isa, Leah, or Sara.
You’ve got the M! Her name is Magenta Charles.
2) Age: Mid-twenties, I think.
Yes! 24, to be precise.
3) Career/role-in-story: I think she’s either a teacher or an academic of so…
Hi all, thanks @obrian-of-the-surface-world for the intro
This looks pretty cool 🙂
Here’s a pic my sister sketched, and I cleaned/coloured:
