Awesome article! Great job, man -thumbs up-
This was a really well written and sensitive approach to a really controversial topic. Great job, guys. -applause-
Another post sort of on the topic of this series that I like to refer to/sort of pertains to the conversation is here: http://hannahheath-writer.blogspot.com/2018/08/depicting-violence-swearing-sex-in-Christian-fiction.html

I’ll….. probably be back if I have any particular deep thoughts of my own but wow this is one deep topic, peoples. -awed applause-
As long as most of your scenes have an antagonistic force present, you’re good to change the faces of it around fairly often. It is tricky, though. I just finished my first book doing that and man, I work better with supervillains. XD
The way they worked it out with all the characters was especially incredible in this movie. o.o I was really not expecting a lot from that aspect and they actually did really well. (I mean…. I would have loved to see more Steve Rogers, but that’s just me probably)

Yeeesss I loved this movie
As someone who watches/reads a lot of mystery, they did a great job working with the whole genre there. Because usually you know that the obvious one is barely ever the actual murderer, and just putting together all the evidence yourself…. it was really good. I didn’t guess it at all and was glad I didn’t look up…[Read more]
sorry about kind of disappearing on you all. can’t guarantee I’m absolutely back and gonna be active for sure because I have a few deadlines to hit soon + a new job going on bUT gonna make an effort to be around more. -salute- tell me if I missed anything important. xD
ho yeah. xD
I actually have a lot of character boards as well. It’s really nice just to get the general feel and collect ideas.
– get at least one more chapter done on Say Uncle
– apply some critiques from the OYAN summer workshop
– get through at least 3 of my endless short story ideas. xD
-swooshes into the guild- awesomesauce, I love conflict and need worldbuilding practice xD
pinterest is your friend, my good madame. xD i’ll see if i can dig up a few for ya.
have her personality hang on more than her fighting skills. give her a few contradictory traits/things that you wouldn’t expect an action girl to have.
oh my goodness. XD
the title though. I think that title pun might be my favorite thing.
@ariel-ashira awesome! well your avatar is very well drawn I can say that much. 😉
@dekreel heylo heylo! -much waving- heh, nice to see my reputation sortakinda precedes me! XD hopefully I’ll be able to keep up around here a little better. always nice to meet a new writer mate. <3
-wishes you’d have seen them too- I highly recommend both…[Read more]

Aaaanne hi <3
well we like a lot of the same things but I…. can’t say I speak for hatmaking. That sounds like an interesting hobby that I didn’t really know existed.
haha good thing I have the advantage of not being a stranger…. -whooshes off-
@lady-iliara yES OF COURSE. honestly how could you not? XD I’m chipping away at season 2 currently, and they are slowly breaking my heart. but thank heaven for Mack. Mack is a lifesaver here.
@jane-maree HI HI HI yes ’tis me. I’ve been wanting to use this username now for a while and -jazz hands- here I am. The cowlick in full glory.
a lot of the time you could work that with just putting your character in a situation that is very challenging for them. there’s no one person who’s being the antagonist. it’s just a very hard situation.
like for instance, a lot of gordon korman’s books are comedies with no defined human villain. just a bunch of situations and random obstacles to…[Read more]

hey hey hey, story embers!
well some of you might know me from other places. I’m a ghost of old on kingdom pen. I’m the blogger writefury. I’m the OYANer Cobalt Girl.
aaand now I guess I’m a story ember person (emberling?) named cowlick.
for those of you who don’t know me from any of those contexts, I’m… well, I’m a writer for one. I’m…[Read more]
