I’ve been trying to reply to some comments in a group (Writers Over 25) and my response will not show up!I am wondering why this might be happening?
I’ve tried clicking the “quote” button on the post I want to reply to, and I’ve also tried instead hand typing the quote in the bottom box. I’ve even tried removing quote tags entirely.
None of…[Read more]
This last nanowrimo we had a great thread going here at storyembers. Just curious, is anybody doing camp nano?
(I completely spaced it until right this minute, so I’m still trying to decide whether to jump in, and what to tackle if I do.)
@taylorclogston thanks, I’ll check that group out!
@wolverinerm More of what tasks to plan for, plus how long each takes. Something like, “Let’s see… I need to allow 3 weeks for this thing, then after that is complete it takes another week for that thing…” The point being, I can then use that timeline to work out a release schedule on my…[Read more]
I apologize if I’ve asked this before, but I’m trying to do some planning and I’ve been trying to hat a handle on this.
Anyway, the question is: For those of you who have self-published, what do you use for your release timeline?
(I published my first book, but it wasn’t a very well-thought-out process. I’d like to do a little more c…[Read more]
I’m kind of stuck right now. Assembly line has ground to a halt. I have a lot of stuff written, but none of it seems to be advancing.
I was wondering, what do you guys do for accountability when it comes to writing, sure, but mostly the actual finishing & releasing of your books?
Great timing for this forum group to start up! I’ve been working with business plans lately (here’s my first draft, fyi) and I’ve been wondering about some pieces of info that the books generally suggest for the “financial” section of that.
Now, I realize this will vary a bit by genre, but concerning Christian books in general:
1) what is the…[Read more]
Okay, so i already have a definite “voice” to my writing. But tat just kind of happened all by itself.
My question is what, by concrete definition, is a writers voice and what components make it up?
It seems to me that nailing down this vague concept of “voice” would be of great benefit to those searching for one.
Moreover, if we had more of…[Read more]
So are you suffering from NaNoWriMo withdrawals?
(And why does this sound like a Public Service Announcement?)
Well, if so, you can feed your addiction to pain with the help of a website I just learned about.
https://www.mywriteclub.com is a free online tool with a progress graph almost eerily similar to the NaNo site. For example:
Now we can
@daeus-lamb Sorry. Typo, there. Meant to say “having TROUBLE posting”.
@daeus-lamb I wonder if you could help me, I’ve been having posting lately. The other day I tried to start a topic with a nanowrimo-like software tool I found and it didn’t show up. Today I tried to reply to a topic on characters and that didn’t show either.
I was wondering if, perhaps, I posted too many times in the NaNoWriMo topic(s) and…[Read more]
Can you check when you go to create a topic if the “topic status” (look below the textblock when you’re writing the post) is set to “pending”? That’s one explanation for why your topic wasn’t published. (by the way, I just activated that topic.)
I’m not sure why your replies aren’t going live. I might have to contact our forum hosting support about that.
@anne_the_noob14 Just don’t stop, right? That’s what’s important.
In fact, here’s your llama — paid in advance, since we all know you’re going to make it even if it takes a few days extra. 🙂
Hey fellow last-minute crunchers. Keep at it! You can do it!
I just barely joined the llama winner’s circle! Hurray!
Man! Giant emoji strikes again!
49612. So…. close…
But the mere 500 words in two days had little to do with “thankfulness” and more to do with a freak blizzard that dropped two feet of snow on us (and counting)! I am sooo sore from shoveling!
@eden-anderson congratulations on earning your llama of completion!
I’ve still got 1100 words to go. Perhaps if I don’t overdo the “thankfulness” 😉 today I’ll be joining you soon.
Hey all right! This thread hit 100 pages!
🎶 Cel-e-brate good times, COME ON! 🎶
I guess I’m singing everything right now because I’ve been working on my big ballroom scene again today.
(Drawing heavily on the GREAT ballroom scene from Enchanted

Since it was Sunday, I decided to kick back and play around in the workshop. Inspired by the Wonderland side of my story I decided to try and make some hand-carved hearts out of exotic bloodwood. Made a huge mess, but the results are pretty sweet!
I plan on hanging each from a chain like a pendant… probably do a promo/giveaway someday when t…[Read more]
