    Haha, yep. I got a major idea for one of my plots when I was just walking along a highway one afternoon. (It had nothing to do with highways, but ya know, inspiration is weird sometimes

    Wow walks can be so beneficial sometimes! I’ve found that it helps to clear my head sometimes and helps me to figure out stories too 🙂 Dreams too are…[Read more]

  • @sparrowhawke

    I see, that sounds quite difficult. You know, if anything, it makes your gift for writing even more amazing, because you are able to overcome your obstacles and create stories! That’s something to be proud of 😉

    Oh jeepers my guesses were so close, not so bad at all for my first try lol. She does look a lot like a teacher actually,…[Read more]

  • @sparrowhawke

    I’ll do yours now 🙂

    Name: Tanya Baker

    Age: 18-21 I’d say?

    Career, role in story: Best friend or the smart college roommate of the MC

    Personality: Warm friendly and loyal. Quite sensitive and quiet, she is always found in the library with her nose in a book. She wouldn’t be very talkative around guys either. But once you get to…[Read more]

  • @sparrowhawke

    Thank you so much, that means a lot! 🙂 Have you had sight difficulties for your whole life? I know one girl who only got glasses later on in her life because she decided to stare at the sun for a while…

  • @sparrowhawke

    Yeah it’s funny isn’t it haha, I wasn’t expecting anyone to be that accurate XD. Thanks, I’m glad you think so! I wanted my character to have some kind of a disability because I feel like that’s underrepresented in fiction. She was originally partially deaf but I changed it something that I could relate to more. I came across…[Read more]

    @rebekah12

    Thank you hehe I’m very glad you think so!! XD

  • @sparrowhawke

    Wow your guesses were almost spot on! Impressive 🙂

    Name: Emily? Maylie? Mandie? Idk, something feminine, but a bit modern-sounding, if that makes sense

    Hehe you were very close! It’s Mayra, which I actually think is also pretty feminine and modern lol

    Teen, 14-15 (I’m leaning more toward 15)

    She was originally 15 in the first d…[Read more]

  • Neasa replied to the topic Howdy, all. in the forum Introduce Yourself 2 weeks ago

    Hi so here’s a more complete version of my previous excerpt. I would love to hear any feedback whatsoever, particularly for the fight scene. Like I mentioned before, I am awful at fight scenes. So if anyone here is a ‘fight scene’ expert I would love a bit of advice on the fight moves, descriptions, stances etc. But any other feedback would be…[Read more]

  • Ooh this looks great! Here’s mine, it’s just a headshot really because I’m terrible at drawing bodies. This is also my first ever attempt at a manga character so it’s a bit messy lol

    @fitz

    Hiya again! Don’t worry you’re fine, we all have hectic weeks at some point, so you don’t need to apologise.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, I’m very grateful for it! I’m glad you like it! And no don’t worry you’re not too harsh at all, it’s perfect thanks! You made me realise I probably should have given a bit more context into the…[Read more]

    Great idea! Yours made me chuckle lol. This looks like it will be a good laugh XD

     

    Evil Fae Queen: “Humans are disgusting little creatures. They must all DIE!”

    Faeries: “Hear, hear!”

    The Queen leaned back in her majestic throne and smiled regally. “I must say Mayra – you remind me a lot about myself when I was your age.”

    This comment caught me off guard. My eyes met hers again, shifting ever so slightly in my seat in order to face her throne a bit more. “I – I do?”

    “Oh yes,” her voice lowered. “Many years…[Read more]

  • Neasa replied to the topic Concept bouncing! in the forum Fantasy Writers 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    This sounds pretty cool! Here’s my concept for my story.

    The worldbuilding is as follows:

    My story is inspired by Irish mythology. Basically it is set in a dystopian future where almost the entirety of mankind is under the control of an authoritarian military faction called the Raven’s Legion. You find out later that they are actually Fae, also…[Read more]

  • Neasa replied to the topic Howdy, all. in the forum Introduce Yourself 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    So this is an excerpt from the first chapter or prologue of my WIP. The person whose point of view is being shown isn’t the main protagonist, but its not going to be a case where a meaningless character is introduced in the first chapter and then they’re killed off in that same chapter or something. I plan on bringing in this character again later…[Read more]

    @fitz

    Thanks for the link! I read your prologue just there, and wow! So biblical and very imaginative. I could really hear the voice of David Attenborough reading the words. I look forward to reading more of your work 🙂

    The thing is about us Irish is that we like to pretend that we tan, and that lots of sun is good for us. That’s been my…[Read more]

    Thank you, actually that might be easier if you linked it, I’m still learning how to navigate this forum haha.

    I’ve always wanted to go to California myself. I had the chance to go do an college exchange trip but, it was SO expensive so I had to drop my hopes real quick. That’s so interesting, I love meeting people who have Irish/Scottish…[Read more]

    Oh excellent, I must see if the prologue is still there! I do love a good old creation story 🙂
