    Thanks to both of you! I think I’ll be able to weave the characters in now.

    Hm…. The one I call “Lylith” would probably be for 13-15 year old readers and “The Author’s Way” would be for 10-14 year old readers. The thing is, I am not very good at writing scary scenes, so younger people could most likely read them also.

    YES THE MOVIES!! I have seen the three they sent out and am waiting for The Silver Chair. (And The Magician’s Nephew, The Last Battle, and The Horse and His Boy, but I’m not sure if the producers are going to take them on.)

    I definitely recommend the Hobbit and LOTR. One problem with the Hobbit though, it seems the adventure is always happening and doesn’t let the characters rest much.  The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers do better in that and are really interesting and exiting. The Return of the King kind of drags out, but it is still very worth reading. The Silmarillion drags out even more, but if you like history, it’s a good choice.

    Actually, in The Author’s Way, I have the characters talk to me and express their anger, uneasiness,  thankfulness, etc… about the plot and turns of events. So far I’ve killed at least a hundred side characters. Heh heh. Oops.

    Hello! My name is Ethan. I am thirteen years old and mostly (Okay, ONLY) write medieval-style fantasy. I have started five stories, gave up on three of them, and only one of the two that are left is going well.

    So. My favorite books….? *Chuckles nervously* should I name them off alphabetically or according to word length? XD here are some of them: The Chronicles of Narnia(C. S. Lewis) The Seven Sleepers Series(Gilbert Morris), This Present Darkness, Piercing the Darkness, and The Cooper Kids Adventure Series(Frank Peretti), Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and the Silmarillion (J. R. R. Tolkien) The Ascendance Trilogy(Jennifer A. Nielson), and the Left Behind Series(Jerry B. Jenkins).

     

    My favorite part of writing is sending parts (I never actually finished a story before) of my writing to my friends. My favorite method of torture is having one’s friend die >:D

    Asher: “That’s not funny! Jared was my best friend, and I’m going to keep my promise.” *Glares as he trudges over the sand*

    Adrian and Ivoulac(My antagonists in each book) “Huh? What is the use of friends when one can have enemies?”

    Aileen: “I lost my mother and father in the great war, and my brother to a giant fox. My friends were all captured or killed. All I have is Titus, and it isn’t in you to kill him.” *Smiles*
