@erynne Thank you for the topic invite!
I really like the article by @r-m-archer , and it brought to mind that there is a distinction between antagonists opposing the protagonist and outright villains. I’m going to talk about villains, but I’m assuming they’re also antagonists.
Lucifer from DC comics, specifically Sandman by Neil Gaiman and Hellb…[Read more]
Heads up. We’re moving the guilds to the archives. You’ll still be able to access old posts, but you won’t be able to make new…[Read more]
Hey SE people!
We’ve launched a cool new feature on the forum called groups.
You can find them in the nav bar like so:
Groups are hubs for writers to gather around something they share in common. They include a Facebook-like feed and most of them also include their own forums.
So far there are three types of groups:
1. Word war…[Read more]
OKAY! So, Hope Ann is currently launching Dust to Flame. It’s a…[Read more]
Here are the word war results!!
We didn’t do so hot, but I know I needed a break after the intense NaNo effort. We’ll do better next time! We got this!!
And congrats to the awesome…[Read more]

Hello, raiders! I know I keep apologizing for writing delayed installments, but I won’t have to anymore because…
THIS IS THE GRAND FINALE OF RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARC! 😮
I hope you enjoy the ending as much as the beginning, and that it keeps you laughing until I write the third one. 😉
I guess I can’t be sure, but I assume Brandon has said goodbye to you? Well, not bye, but that he’s stepped down from guildmastering due to an overwhelming work load.
I wanted to step in on his behalf to let you know about the future of the guilds.
Many other among the guildmasters noticed that the job is mentally taxing and that…[Read more]

Why does it seem like every time I post one of these that I’m apologizing for my lateness? 😂 I guess I should stop apologizing and just say I’ll write when I write and you can die from suspense in…[Read more]
Hey there! I’m not technically here… oh well. I was just heard there’s a war going on, and wanted to cheer you…[Read more]
So based on everyone’s favorites so far, here is an idea:
What if we posted a thread where everyone who wanted to participate posted their “writing plan” for the week (like 30 minutes on Monday, and hour on Tuesday, break on Wednesday…etc.) and we had a mini…[Read more]

Sorry for another belated installment! 😅 Between an SE retreat, Realm Makers, and settling into my new job here, I’ve barely had time to catch my breath (hopefully August will be slower).
Okay, guys! Time for a discussion!
Recently, I’ve been juggling a novella challenge and the 100 for 100 challenge. I kind of left the novella challenge by the wayside, but not before writing around 23,000 words for one draft and 4-5 for another in a different pov. I also thought this would be a good chance to try my hand at first person, since my…[Read more]
Congratulations to Parimi Alca!
That’s okay, I do agree with what the judges said. The piece was written, but it was far from perfect. I enjoyed getting to be part of the prompt war this month!
((@brandon-Miller well, that was a great blackout scene. Not sure I can get close to that, but here we go!))
Peggy’s forehead stuck to the seat in front of her as she felt the plane lurch in a direction it should not be going. All she could hear was the loud thump thump thump against her chest as the air around her seamed to thicken.
