I don’t like this topic so much. I think writers should care about theme and let their personal ability to choose the character that fits better to it. Writers should feel free to portray who and what they intend to (or are able to).
But I would apreciate some stories of a priest where he can do his job in peace, like if it could be a normal part…[Read more]

I’m not writting at all too. I spent all the week at home (but monday) engaged with cooking, cleaning and organizing things.
What’s happening changed peoples perspective of live. We are dealing with things that few of us could imagine. And so fast. I guess I needed some time to rest these ideas. I fell that what I’m about to write will be…[Read more]
Candide replied to the topic Have You Noticed the Book on the Home Page is "Lord of the Rings?" in the forum General Writing Discussions 1 month, 2 weeks ago
I’ve started reading “Lord of the Ring” a month ago for the first time too.
I’ve been thinking on that and my guess is this niilism around us that causes D.O.D being popular. In a world with no hope, no good for free and no strength above human strength, the heroine must held it the best possible. That’s why we woman have been portrait “as strong as man”; that’s the best woman this world can give birth.
So, an possible…[Read more]
I would like to remember Miss Marple, from Aghata Cristie’ books, as an inspiration. Her “strength” does not come from physical abilities neither and she’s old and single. She doens’t have beauty and youth, the most commom “powers” a female characater may have.
I chose “Late night thoughts and nightmare”. Later, she can “revange herself in true life”, living things that meant the oposite of her thoughts and nigthmares.
Oh, If I could, I would invite her to go to some beach and just forget this smalminded school people!
Hello! This one is a english-spanish poem. Written a couple weeks ago.
Does it works? Enjoy and critique.
I’ll be weak beforme my God
The one whose praise is worth
I’ll be weak before my God
The one who made me of His own
I may live in a huge desert
One He personally knows
Help this pouring soul!
Yo lo sé.
Esta és una…[Read more]
How lovelly! How sweet!
Sometimes I feel exactly like this.
There is a Word War on SE.
Well, when it happens to me, it’s time to bake or to ride a bike.

I like small poetry. In fact, my goal is 15/18 lines. So, if it is not enough, let’s rewrite! (I intended to portray loneliness.)
Now, your turn, guys.
Well, I have this one:
I keep my eyes open untill night
I keep myself asleep
Listening silent stars.
(I just forget they are above, really above)
I play cards alone.
I wash one cup.
(Stars are completely above).
@kayla-skywriter, very lovely idea! I’ve already written poems to my family too. Once my father came to tears.
How old is your younger sister? How does she shows afection toward her mom?
Maybe you should invite her to prepare somenthing of her own that could be added to book project . Just ask her what could be (she may want to contribut with…[Read more]
About L., I’m not sure if anyone would go on asking the way he does (in the middle of the text, in fatc).
Feel free to say what doesn’t work. 🙂
(I’m not sure about L. behavior in the end. If it is convincing.)
It’s a english version of a short story written in Portuguese.
<p style=”text-align: center;”>Pink Maristela</p>
She had upon her a pair of blue eyes. Shoulders. Hands. Smile. He had fallen.
But Maristela was in panic. Shy and talkative, she went on telling her ideas to change the world (at least, sharing some succesful experiences on smaller tasks).
– Why do you close your eyes while you talk? He asked.…[Read more]
Just a question: when ‘Post personal writing schedule and request critique partner” is supposed to hapen?
Sorry, I didn’t get the point.
