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]
After talking up being prepared for Sunday last week, I didn’t get my extra words in line this week. Oops.
But I did find this today. Great help for those of us stuck in the 3/4 doldrums.
If you’re still jazzed about your book, bookmark this video anyway, because there’ll come a time…
Nah, not “behind”. That’s 33 THOUSAND more than you had last month! That’s some great progress!
Also, looks like you got some great word wars in today.
Don’t feel bad, but to answer the question, I just passed 45k today.

Sorry I wasn’t around. Our internet provider was down yesterday due to high winds. 😢
Barely came back in time to update my word count. If I’d have lost my streak because of downed phone lines, I’d have FREAKED OUT!
Hey, looks like we’ve got a lot of sweet toothys as far as snacking goes.
Here’s my million dollar invention: You know those Ad…[Read more]
Question of the day: Do you snack while writing? If so, what’s your snack of choice?
This year I’ve been going for salted peanuts. The good news is it’s fairly healthy. The bad news is my writing desk is getting a little disgusting – peanut shells all over the place like a cheap cowboy bar. LOL! 🤠
@naiya-dyani No patience needed! I love explaining NaNo. It’s so much easier than explaining my stories.
Haha! Exactly! Well said! 👏
