You know you are a writer when life (a.k.a. writing) slaps you in the face, knocks you out, then kidnaps you so you’re too busy to post in Story Embers for several months, then when you escape and reappear in the forums again, you post something like THIS.
*puffs in on foot, praying it isn’t too late*
Sorry it’s been so long! Starscream may be hiding from me because I told him he needed a bath, so now I have to get places on foot. Honestly! *huffs*
But I LOOOOOVE this poem!! Besides that typo that was so helpfully pointed out by someone much more prompt than myself, it was…[Read more]
Cassie Hartfinh started the topic To propose or not to propose, but HOW is the question… in the forum General Writing Discussions 9 months, 1 week ago
Hello Story Embers leaders, wherever you are! *waves and offers virtual pizza*
I have a question.
So I finished my first fantasy novel. The first of four, hopefully. Up till now, I’ve been self-publishing my novels because editors scare me and so do contracts. Well, they did, at any rate. Turns out, self-publishing also means I have to advertise…[Read more]
Has life slowed down for ya enough by now? (Pretend I’m talking in a Scottish accent–it’s cooler.) I’ve finished the first draft of The Dhilorwis Saga (or, more formerly known as: Flames’ Descent)!!!
*throws pizza parade*
*wonders what a pizza parade even is but doesn’t care*
ANYWAYS!! *munches on pizza* Are you still…[Read more]
I got 14,000 words in for Parimi Alca!!
*gets revived by the smell of all the cookies floating around*
Now to finish NaNo!!!😜
MUAHAHAHAHA!!! Y’ALL ARE GOING DOWN!!! *soars off to scribble on stacks of pages within hobbit hole with nothing but a lifetime supply of ink and coffee*
Didn’t we do a month-long Word War for NaNoWriMo last year?? Can we do that again, PLLLLEEEEAAASSSE??? Just so I can win? *grins maliciously*
Sure!! Go ahead and follow the link I left in the post above!
Ah. Did I neglect to mention that Dhilorwis has a map now?😏
…I believe an apology and a free virtual pizza party are in order.
Six months and two weeks ago, as my Story Embers profile so tactfully reminds me, I began this forum thread in an attempt to garner beta readers for my first fantasy story, The Dhilorwis Saga,…[Read more]
Whooooo, go Jess!! You got this, girl!! Smash those exams!!😁
@j-a-penrose Everything’s been a bit quiet since our victory. Everything alright? Any new wars or challenges? *rubs hands in anticipation*
I have been on the run for three months.
And my shoulder is taking its sweet old time healing from the arrow I expertly caught with it just over a week ago.
Let me explain.
Back when Hendrik was first captured for treason against the Dhilorwian Empire, I stood at a…[Read more]
*soars in on griffin named Starscream* *crash-lands* *groans into sitting position*
Oh, man. We barely escaped that one. *glances at left shoulder* Oooohhh, dear…erm, anybody have bandages? I may or may not have expertly caught a stray arrow with my…arm. *sheepish, weak grin* *clears throat*…[Read more]
@caserola Whatever you end up doing, I’m sure it will be an amazing piece of literature!! You go, girl!!😊
AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!😆😆😆😆😆 *leaps over moon and dances around sun, then rides a tidal wave of asteroids for joy*
AMAZING story, and great job to everybody who participated!! We WON!!!
I’m so sorry I couldn’t be a part of helping to achieve this amazing victory, but next time…[Read more]
@caserola Wow, that’s an interesting plot! I can’t wait to see how it turns out when it’s finished! How far along are you in your writing process?
Alright. *dusts self off* So, upon further investigation, Starscream and I discovered that our trader was wanted for treason against the Dark Being and his new…[Read more]
Okay. To be fair, this time it wasn’t Starscream who dragged me away for another Long Absence. See, there was this trader in the town of Tilmae, on the plains of Naagstumek, several hundred leagues to the west of the Great Sandy Desert. I meet this trader from time to time in…[Read more]
Hi, @caserola!!!! *waves like crazy* Glad to see you joined!!! There’s a lot of great people here who also love to write. I’m as curious as Jess. What do you like to write the most? Also, @noodle-mum, and Caserola, there’s a short story contest going on with Story Embers. If you want to enter, check out the rules on the right side of the site! @ari…[Read more]
*flies in after another sandsnake battle*
Glad to see you all getting along and getting to know each other! I apologize, but awhile ago I befriended a griffin named Starscream (through a certain series of events), and he constantly drags me away from conversation to do battle with these…[Read more]
