Interesting experience with languages. I’m assuming English was the one you were born with?
I was raised for a few years speaking Mandarin, but I was switched onto English once I started preschool. By now, I’ve forgotten most of my Mandarin; but I can at least understand most of it when I hear it being spoken. Currently, I’m learning Latin as…[Read more]
No haha — it’s just an exaggerated example.
Interesting! The extent of my Japanese skills mainly comes from watching all the old Godzilla movies haha, and not much else. French is a beautiful language though. I want to learn it someday. But it’s Latin for now. 😉
Huh, interesting — what is your story about?
I definitely haven’t gotten any…[Read more]
If speculative fiction is what I think it is, then that’s EXACTLY why I’m doing it haha.
To be fair though, I did buy “A Writer’s Guide to Weapons” by Benjamin Sobieck, so like, I’m practically an expert on guns now if I do say so myself. 😉 There’s nothing in the book about chainsaw-crossbows though.
Worldbuilding is awesome haha. I try to d…[Read more]
@naiya-dyani , interesting! Huh… that’s really cool — in fact, I think a lot of what I’ve been writing may be speculative fiction then haha. That’s pretty weird.
Although the reason it’s speculative fiction is probably more because “IT’S ANOTHER WOOORRRLD” is easier than doing your research ahha. If so, then I’m guilty.
@naiya-dyani , understandable haha. I’m active there mainly because I have an established personality, and it’d be hard to leave now haha.
Honestly, I’ll write whatever’s on my mind at the moment. I’m a very visually-orientated person though, so whatever I write, it tends to have complicated action scenes. Not necessarily fighting, but lots of…[Read more]
Thanks, @jane-maree !
Well, for one, I got sick. I wasn’t planning for that haha
Otherwise, I’ve been looking to get my (latest) blog/podcast off the ground and finish my resume!
I’m not sure what my family will be doing for Christmas since we’re all sick haha
@naiya-dyani , for a very split second there, I was scared that I did. But now it’s all good haha.
Haha, that’s cool. I’m guessing NaNoWrimo? That’s the one I spend the most time on. Very smart of you to stay secret — I’ve been reading a lot of stalker horror stories lately.
Full on Stars — from a Cosmonaut’s journal
When I was a child,
I ate dust.
Face upon the floor,
I saw nothing.
Hours would go by,
I couldn’t get up
Far from home
It stayed the same.
I found myself
In heavy shadow,
My mind goes back,
I see no sky,
I have no eyes.
The world…[Read more]
Well, hey guys! What’s up in my life?
Well, I just “rejoined” Story Embers, so to speak. On a whim, of course. 😉
Well, let’s see what happens.
Well, I missed you guys.
Oopsies poopsies, I’m back.
Haha, hey guys, it’s been a while. It’s me: Xonos! Though you can call me Joseph or whatever you’d like.
It’s been a long while, and since then, I’m happy to announce to you all that I’ve approved none whatsoever in my self-discipline to finish anything I write! Pretty exciting, right? Anyway, aside from wri…[Read more]
This looks good!!
Hey, guys. Sorry that I’ve been away for so long. I was in Taiwan for two weeks, and I forgot my computer charger!!

Thank you, @jane-maree.
And you as well, @ashira haha.
I have before, actually. In fact, I’ve done it. But personally, some of them are sort of too far into the semi-developement stage that I wouldn’t want to mash my poor babies together, if you know what I mean. If I could, I would’ve haha. But I can’t, for they are too precious.
Thanks for…[Read more]
Further proof that we’re the best.
It’s set in stone, guys.

I think I need a lot of that, personally.
I joke around a lot about how I have a thousand WIPs and how I can never get anything done, and in reality, it’s funny because it’s true.
I’m horrible at prioritizing things and doing what needs to be done. Part of the problem is laziness, but I think another thing is that I just can’t motivate myself to…[Read more]

Welcome to Story Embers. 😉
I prefer the term “complicated”. Troubled, maybe. Peculiar’s a nice term. I’ll settle for strange haha, though it depends on my mood.
The usual reaction when something concerns me, of course. She is an avid fan of mine haha. (joke)
Perhaps. Perhaps. Take care haha. @kari-karast
Hm, good point. Can’t beat an enemy that doesn’t exist . . . . .
Ahhh, I remember that. I remember the “yummy” thing too. I think I was saying “yummy” in reply to everything that day haha. Or who knows, I’m strange. The sword thing checks out. 😉
