Hey guys! I’m filling in for Brandon today.
Your goal is to write a story where you bring out the beauty of something ordinary in the middle of a very dramatic setting.
Have fun and see if you can beat the mighty Saxon Scribes.…[Read more]
Greetings Saxon Scribes,
I’m really excited about this new prompt war because I think it’ll be a great learning experience and result in some wonderful submissions.
Our goal is to write a story where we bring out the beauty of something ordinary in the middle of a very dramatic setting.
Unfortunately, I’ll be out of state during much of this,…[Read more]
^^ That’s a good starting point.
To get technical, it really depends on your sci-fi culture. If it’s futuristic America, just make up stuff that sounds cool and fairly normal. Futuristic Chinese? Make up something that sounds cool and Chinese. Now if it’s alien, you can do a pretty good fake by…[Read more]
@germaine-han Trad-publishing is a great option! Especially for your first book. You don’t have to pay for any of the book production, it reduces some of the risk of publishing a bad book, and, depending on the situation, may help you sell more books.
For a first book, I’m kinda divided over whether self-publishing or trad-publishing is better,…[Read more]
Hey guys! What’s up?
This week, Jane, Faith, and I (Jane was the main one) worked on putting together a brief overview of the differences between traditional and self-publishing. I know a lot of you are curious about it, so check it out. 😀

I’ve never thought about it this way, but I couldn’t agree more.
By the way, what’s this book? “exploring the world of dreams within dreams to pull off an unusual heist” Is it any good?
SO SORRY for the delay on the results guys. :0 I need to make these posts a higher priority.
Well, here’s the final rundown.
New Wessex: 17,592
Parami Alca: 4,891
Congragulations to everyone! And especially to the Saxon Scribes of New Wessex! 😀 We did it, guys!
@r-m-archer Hey, that’s no small feat.
This month was my very first time working with a hired editor! It’s been awesome.
Congratulations! That you got an edit and are excited is always a good sign. Keep up that hearty spirit.
I desperately want it out
That’s always good. 🙂 Hopefully it’s fun too.
For myself, writing’s flowing nice and smooth though marketing feels kinda overwhelming at the moment. 😛 I’m very bipolar about marketing, haha.
And I’m writing COOL scenes and coming up with NEW story ideas, becuase who doesn’t need more story ideas, am I right?
Hey guys, we haven’t just checked in on each other in a while.
So how are you doing? What’s motivating you to write these days and what’s keeping you back?

*reads them* Wow!
That first one — I loved how heroic I felt for being described as the hero. I can see how this could actually be a really effective thematic technique for sensitive topics. By being the hero, it put the pain and suffering into stark perspective, it made the moral of the story more like a battle cry than a lesson. Maybe, in…[Read more]
Hey guys! We have our results back. I haven’t got a chance to read them yet, but I’d definitely going to. …Can’t resist! Second person, guys… 😉
Writing outside has been a wonderful experience for me, and I wanted to sell you on the idea. 🙂
Why to write outside
I’m writing this post outside. The sun is shining, and some trees provide shade. The stream is full and bubbling and a wind stirs the leaves.
Have I convinced you yet? Write outside!
But to elaborate m…[Read more]
@myclipboardismyviolin By the way, I personally never worry about the world hating Christian fiction. There are even examples of explicitly Christian stories doing phenomenally in the secular market such as Cry, The Beloved Country, Ben-Hur, and Chariots of Fire.
As Brandon Miller said in one of the first podcast episodes: “good stories get…[Read more]
