Bree Dawn

  • @emgc Thanks for checking in! It’s going well. I finished reading my short story collection and I actually just started writing my analysis paper today. <3

  • I would say that my stories pass the test. If two of my female characters are interacting, at least 50% of the time it’s not about a guy. No, scratch that. It’s probably more like 75% of the time.

    @ashira If it is, it wasn’t intentional. My friend wrote me into a story under the name, Dawn, and I wanted to use a pen name for my writing anyway, so I went with Bree Dawn. So yeah, it’s not my real name and no, it’s not intentionally a reflection of the horse in Narnia. Lol.

  • @princess-foo thank you so much for the warmest of welcomes!

  • Can I just say how much I love that Erekdale has an entire section devoted to accountability and goal-related encouragement?

    My goal for this week is to finish reading a short story collection and start writing my analysis for said collection.

  • Oh my goodness, I’m so honored!! I feel so special to be your guys’ last member. <3

    @devastate-lasting Thank you!!

    @lady-frosttongue You’re welcome

    made me giggle and feel all warm and fuzzy inside! “Lady of the Dawn” that sure has a ring to it, doesn’t it? I’m super excited to get to know everyone and participate in spreading some light, l…[Read more]

    @futuro

    Oh my goodness, I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you! I totally forgot I had a message awaiting a reply on here lol.

    Hm…I think it’s really annoying when people act cocky, like they’re better than everyone else, y’know? I dislike people who are shallow and wear masks instead of being their true self. But as for anyth…[Read more]

    Haha, I think your rabbit trails are cool. So no worries.

    Yes, I do follow MBTI, but only slightly. I’ve taken the test multiple times and have gotten multiple different answers (so basically I’m Divergent😂). I don’t put too much stock into it, but currently I’m an ESFJ, which I think is pretty accurate cause I’m basically an ambivert, emotional…[Read more]

    And well, about the novels, here’s about where they’re at.

    dystopian/rebellion thing: an incomplete and currently abandoned first draft.

    fairytale retelling: a completed 64 page first draft that’s awaiting editing and rewrites.

    summer/contemporary: a 10k, unfinished first draft that I had planned to write over the summer but didn’t finish.

  • Bree Dawn replied to the topic Hi there! in the forum Introduce Yourself 8 months, 2 weeks ago

    My favorite tv shows are things like Supernatural, Handmaid’s Tale (with a lot of looking away cause of them nasty sex scenes), Teen Wolf, Dance Academy, House M.D., America’s Next Top Model, etc. I’m quite eclectic when it comes to my tv shows.

  • Bree Dawn replied to the topic Hi there! in the forum Introduce Yourself 8 months, 2 weeks ago

    YWW? I’m…not sure what that is lol. It doesn’t ring a bell so I don’t think I’m part of it, but I dunno.

    Thank you for such a lovely welcome!!

    Haha, I love your pen name. It’s so cool! Bree Dawn is actually a pen name too (I literally haven’t told another soul on the Internet about that, so I hope you feel special✨).

    Ooh, good question! M…[Read more]

    Hi, Evelyne! Haha, singing and dancing are definitely two of my hobbies too. Plus, I’m an alto so harmonizing is my jam.

    Well, here are a few words for each of my novels:

    #1. Dystopian rebellion thing: <betrayals> <young love> <fighting for what you believe in> <crumbling government> <teenage rebellion>

    #2. Fairytale retelling: <abusive r…[Read more]

    Hi, Kenzie! It’s nice to meet you!

    I have three “big” projects that I’m working on long-term for the time being: a dystopian, rebellion novel, a Beauty and The Beast retelling, and a contemporary, summer novel. (If you want more details, just ask and I can throw some aesthetic vibes at you.)

    Yes, I applied for one of the writing guilds, but I t…[Read more]

  • Bree Dawn replied to the topic Hi there! in the forum Introduce Yourself 8 months, 2 weeks ago

    Haha, yes weird quirks are amazing. Also, I accidentally said I was an intermediate writer based on the test, but actually I’m a novice writer. I didn’t look until I hit post.

  • Hello, my name is Bree Dawn and I’m new to the Story Embers forum and writing community.

     

    I love to write dark stories with hopeful undertones. Most of those stories just happen to fall within the dystopian genre (as it’s my favorite), but I also dabble in contemporary, sci-fi, romance, and hints of fantasy.

     

    I haven’t been writing since…[Read more]
