@writercatherine – Just took a look at that poetry of yours…wow. They’re so good! I love the creativity, and the different rhymes and phrases that just blend together so beautifully. My favorites are Little Joys and We will Survive. Where do you find the inspiration?
I got 1133, for a short story I started and a poem. Wasn’t expecting to write at all this week (due to school xD) so I’m super pleased!
@writercatherine – Nice job! Yeah, my brother inspires me all the time. He has lots of ideas but never wants to write them out, so I just snag them. 😛
Since I think we’ve mostly agreed to go with our previous idea (although @azeline-d‘s thought was very fascinating and one I would enjoy delving deeper into), I went ahead and wrote the first scene, coming up with a bunch of names that you can feel free to change. Personally, at already 969 words, I think it’s too long, but I’ve always been bad at…[Read more]
@anne_the_noob14 – Great idea! What if we made the animal a sort of beautiful, colorful, sparkly bird, like an upgraded peacock? Culture B is fine with eating them, but Culture A worships it because it’s one of its gods.
Sorry guys, I’ve been on a no-internet vacation for the last two weeks, so I didn’t see this until…a few minutes ago.
I really like @steward-of-the-pen‘s thought of worldbuilding (totally not because that happens to be one of my few strengths xD) and @j-a-penrose‘s idea of a good sort of collision. Most people think of negativity when they hear…[Read more]
@j-a-penrose – Glad to know you’re not dead! xD I’ve been gone myself for the past two weeks (on vacation, so nothing terrible.)
Aw, you’re fine, I understand! You’ll definitely be in my prayers. Remember to cast all your worries on Him, because He cares for you. 😉
Hope everything smooths out soon!!
@steward-of-the-pen – He does! He’s the one who speaks in rhyme, so I think I can make that part of the conversation seem more intriguing.
Those pesky conversations! xD What are the ex-enemy’s reasons for telling the protagonist the plot? Does the plot put everyone in danger if no one does anything to stop it?
@steward-of-the-pen – Thanks! What kind of a scene is yours? Mine’s basically an audience with this wise person who explains a bunch of things to my MC, and I’m trying not to make it sound flat and like a lecture. Which is really hard. xD
@kayla-skywriter – I think so, but honestly I don’t really know what fingerstyle is. xD Is it just like breaking up the chords to be played by individual fingers?
@writercatherine – Ooh, I’ll have to check that trilogy out. Always looking for new books to read, especially Christian fiction. Well, I just finished The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep (by H.G. Parry) yesterday, one of the best books I’ve read recently. Though it’s not Christian, it’s clean and I highly recommend it. I’m also reading Great…[Read more]
@writercatherine – I’m rather new so I don’t think we’ve met, but…hi! Welcome back!
Lol, that’s <i>so</i> understandable. What books have you been reading recently? YES, we finally won a guild war! We had good teamwork. 😛
Writing’s been going uncharacteristically great for me, which is a blessing and even though I’m trying to come up with a…[Read more]
@evelyn – Here’s my current summary (though I don’t think it’s very good and will probably change it. Again. :P)
With the help of her siblings, Maerielle, a rare wielder of water magic, must heal the enchanted Virnalian Forest, the life source of the Portal between Earth and a planet called Quilvanya. If she fails, an evil emperor from that…[Read more]
@evelyn – YES, family trees are so much fun and so interesting! It’s so cool that you could go all the way to the 16th century! What are some of your methods?
Sadly I haven’t been able to get very far (probably because my ancestors were from France and there was the whole revolution thing going on) but what I have been able to find is pretty…[Read more]
@trallion – I know, compared to piano, my violin sounds so bad. But I’m in love with it played by people who actually know what they’re doing, so I put up with it. 😛 Do you have a favorite composer for solo piano?
@emberynus-the-dragonslayer – Hi! I mostly listen to instrumental music, but while driving I listen to KLOVE, on which I prefer music by Jeremy Camp, Micah Taylor…and a bunch of others I can’t think of the names of right now. xD
Nope, I don’t like chocolate. *smiles sweetly* And I’ve lived a glorious fifteen years without it (well, except…[Read more]
@steward-of-the-pen – Yay, you’re back!
Ooh, good luck on your goal! I don’t really have much planned since I’m going on vacation for the last two weeks of August (without my computer), but I’m hoping to finish this pesky little scene that’s taking forever to write before I leave next week.
@holly-anne – Yay, another writer who doesn’t like chocolate! A pleasure to meet you too!
Thank you so much!!! YES, abstract-ness is awesome. I have a dream to actually compose my main characters’ soul-melodies, but we’ll see how that goes. It’s a pretty stressful job to compose the musical fabrics of my characters’ souls. xD
Same with me, I…[Read more]
@holly-anne – This is such a good topic! Music is a huge part of my life. I love listening to classical, orchestral stuff (especially Debussy and Tchaikovsky), LoTR/Narnia soundtracks and, of course, the Piano Guys (who knew? xD)
Music is quite possibly the foundation of my fantasy world. Davatel (God, basically) created the universe through…[Read more]
I don’t have much experience with poems and their inner complexities, but I had a burst of inspiration when I had a recent *cough* traumatizing *cough* experience.
I call this Stained.
With blackest ink
Over lands of snow.
With jagged grains
And never slows.
The darkest dread
That only gro…[Read more]
