This week, there is a word war! *cheers*

Who: All of those on the Story Embers Forum. (us included!)
When: Monday 22 EST to Sunday 29 EST
Where: Right HERE
Why: To help build your…[Read more]
Hey! Thanks for starting this. Really good questions (not to mention great to be able to read all of those answers)
If you ask my old teachers what my strength is, they’d say Show don’t Tell. I personally think that characterisation is more my thing though?
(As for the tagging thing, I’m going to be gong over a few more major…[Read more]
This is our Weekly Guild Discussion from Brandon this week, and we’ll be looking at a really cool topic: Reading. Without any further rambling at the front, we’ll hand over to Brandon.
Okay so, we’re all writers, right? We weave words and spin tales and generally have a good go at reality. For most of us though, our love for s…[Read more]
@april-j-rhys Also, I just remembered. I actually got around to talking to you when you first joined SE! Sweet. And you met my greatest rival: Jane Maree (AKA, my awesome cousin and the Meraki Guildmaster)
@april-j-rhys YAS. You are in the bestiest guild EVER! (At least, as far as I am concerned. *nodnod*)
And I have to ask: What is ‘furry’? I read it on the description when I had to pick some guildlings, and squinted at it for a few minutes, trying to work out if it was a typo, then you mentioned it again. xD (From the sign-up information.) And…[Read more]
@christlover Wait. You recognised it as Quenya. Ardalambion. Anya Elda?? (I may or may not be a linguistic nerd who learnt Quenya a while back, and has been slowly deciphering Vorian as a side hobby now.)
Hmmm, surprise surprise that the ENTP likes debating. xD Hopefully you’ll have some chances for discussion and debate during our Weekly Guild…[Read more]
We have some amazing new Parimis! I’m sure you’re all super excited, like me, plus, holidays have started for where I am, so I’m trying to convince myself that essays can wait, and I can actually do a heap more here to get it properly going again.
Ello Parimis! It’s me, Jess! Yay. I feel like it’s been an age since I’ve written one of these, but today, we are looking at health while writing. This probably sounds an awful lot like what you’ve heard in PDHPE lessons, but just bear with me. 😀
Disclaimer: I am not a professional in any of the subjects discussed in this lesson, and am…[Read more]
Welcome to SE @tdprince! Do you have a favourite writing beverage?
Also, gosh. It’s been so long since I’ve read The Knights of Arrethrae! But I remember enjoying them. *nodnod*
And Historical ficiton is a favourite genre of mine…for reading. I’m horrible at writing it. xD
I hope you enjoy Story Embers!!
Up to lesson four now, Parimis! Today we’re hearing from Martin, and he’s looking at what he has dubbed, ‘the Artist’s Eye’. I can’t wait to get stuck into it. 😀
When we sit down at our desks and take up our pens, ready to mark down the next few hundred words, what is the mindset that has filled up all the space on either side…[Read more]
MY DUDES, WE DID AWESOME!
Wait for it…
We were highly commended again! Guys, this is stellar! It was a super hard prompt, and I’m so proud of you. Plus, getting highly commended every time has to be a good sign. 😛
Here’s the doc with all of the entries!…[Read more]
Hi Guys! Today, we’re hearing from Faith, and looking at how you can balance your writing life with the rest of your life.
24 hours. 1,440 minutes. 86,400 seconds. That’s how much time we have each day. And yet, it seems like we never have enough hours, minutes, or seconds to get everything done. What do you do when you can’t seem to squ…[Read more]
Okay. Guys, the submission is in and judged, and we did great! I’m still waiting to hear when we’re meant to announce things, cos everything is a bit of a mess right now.
Also…word war?? That’s…not on the calendar. Or in the chat. But okay then. Um. Yes. Apparently, things there have changed too. I’ll make a post on it, but…[Read more]
Nooo, I don’t have them up anywhere, unfortunately. D: There are a few snippets on my blog, but not much other than that. Yas. Blue is great.
Tolkien is definitely a favourite over here! I read a lot of Rothfuss and Sanderson, but also some lighter things like Andrew Peterson and Gillian Bronte Adams. (All are recommended with…[Read more]
Hello Parimis! We have another lesson from Daeus today, and it’s on Beta Readers! Woot! We all love Betas, and Beta-ing is equally as awesome. Let’s see what Daeus has for us today.
Beta reading is a great way to make friends, help others, and even polish your skills.
Today, I want to give you some tips so that, when you beta read, the friend…[Read more]
First up, welcome! @april-j-rhys
Do you have any favourite fantasy authors?? (so much amazing fantasy out there that I have to ask.) Are you a music person?
I’m Jess, and found SE through the old site, Kingdom Pen. And I love to write because I feel God wants to speak through me, hence He’s gifted me with words, and hopefully they will change at…[Read more]
@taylorclogston Nonononono. Don’t apologise! 😛 It’s really good. As I said, we all have different views, and I can promise you that that will be very obvious through the rostering of guildmaster posts. XD (I’ve checked over the topics, and thankfully none of the huge contradiction ones are on the schedule yet.)
Also, not that these are…[Read more]
