@kayla-skywriter *raises hand*
This sounds fun! Here we go, one quote per book:
I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope that I have made them right.
So really, children, mathematically, all of light is invisible.
Every locked door has a key. Every problem has a solution.
For you, a thousand times over.
Can’t wait to see what happens!
@cassandraia Thank you! My plot is coming together, bit by bit. I have to find time and battle my own insecurities, but to be honest, once I get on the document and start typing, it’s really all about the story. Most of the debilitating thoughts come when I’m not writing 😛
Oooh, how was Realm Makers? Did you meet up with anyone from SE?
I like what we have so far! But like many other people said, I’m way out of my league here, so Imma sit back and watch y’all do your thing, and then come back during editing time 🙂
To summarize what’s been going on so far: Our MC has amnesia (TGA) and it is this fact that makes the audience initially believe that it was him that…[Read more]
@msqueen8 No problem! We need more truth-filled art in our world.
Oooh, YWW!! I get emails about it, but haven’t signed up because of the time commitment. Do you find it time-consuming? How do you feel about it versus Story Embers (or Kingdom Pen, if applicable)? 🙂
@daeus-lamb Hmm… this was always an interesting point for me because I generally felt like I didn’t have many ideas (only two short-ish novel ideas are floating around right now), whereas my best friend gets so so so many. But then reading this, I did realize that there are all sorts of things that inspire me, and that in general they have found…[Read more]
I was super encouraged by your story! It’s sincere and uplifting, a good reminder in the midst of a pretty twisted culture.
For me, it’s set to “view only”, so I just went ahead and listed places where I found grammar and punctuation errors. Corrections/issues are in italics:
“Clearly my older sister thought we were part of a s…[Read more]
@noodle-mum Well, in terms of not finishing things, there are a lot of us in the same boat 🙂
*looks at her WIP, which has been around for 3 1/2 years and hasn’t even gotten past the first plot point yet*
And as for Crysti… her personality is sort of like mine xD (For some reason, I can clearly define characters in my stories except for my…[Read more]
@noodle-mum Oooh, that’s really cool. Your WIP premise sounds amazing, particularly since the objects of the quest draw from the various character arcs. 😀
My writing mostly stays within realistic fiction or adventure (like medieval worlds). Common themes I write about have been friendship and relating rightly to the people around us, and of…[Read more]
@noodle-mum Hey there, Alli! Welcome to New Wessex!
I’m Grace, and as for how I’m doing… life is pretty busy, especially in the summer when I have a lot of volunteering/camps to be involved in. I thought I would have more time to write, but I’m afraid not.
What kind of things do you write?
I pretty much agree with what people have said — the novelty might wear off, and it isn’t anything new.
Echoing Sarah, my personal reason for not being on is that my online activities here at SE generally correlate with how much time I’m actually spending writing… which, if taken up by school and summer homework, isn’t a lot :/…[Read more]
Great job everyone! 😀 It was such a beautiful piece, @kate.
@bama-rose Ranger’s Apprentice!! *cheers*
@shadowwriter161 The first book in the Ranger’s Apprentice series is The Ruins of Gorlan. He (John Flanagan) also has a Brotherband Chronicles Series which starts with The Outcasts.
Some other suggestions include: The Lord of the Rings trilogy/Silmarillion (which are loooong but totally worth it), The S…[Read more]
@kate This is gorgeous! The worldbuilding is vivid, mystical, and with a very cool blend of fantasy and technology. The simplicity of the fish as light also stood out to me. Good job!
I’d guess the big thing here for me is structure. You’ve written it with a fairly slow beginning, with a lot of description and internal monologue. It really…[Read more]
Echoing @corissa, let’s make sure what we end up with is the strongest way we could write the prompt. There are so many great ideas here though, so keep it up!
@sesi To build on this… maybe the scuba diver is about to run out of air, and he needs to get to the top quickly? But he’s kind of lost in the kelp forest and can’t see anything?
Maybe he risks being entangled if he tries to surface in the kelp (we’d have to do research maybe) but then he gets irritated at that little fish. And then he chooses…[Read more]
@kate Yeah, this prompt is pretty exciting!
Ideas for a dramatic scene: People (friends, family) fighting, battlefield, chase sequence, fighting sequence, a race/competition/tournament of sorts.
And about the prompt itself… I’m guessing that to do this right, we’re going to have to succeed at both the dramatic and the ordinary parts of the…[Read more]
*cheers* Great job, Saxon Scribes! Super pumped that we finally did it 😀
I’m doing okay. School finishes up this week, so I’ll have a lot of time and energy to dedicate to this week’s word war 🙂 During summer, I want to get back to writing regularly. Right now I’m trying to hack through the bigger picture of my WIP so that I can have a story flowing smoothly and that I can just keep going ahead in rather than…[Read more]
