Thank you. I must admit that I haven’t been on here for awhile. I will definitely check out that article as soon as I can.
I do have a close friend who has helped me with a lot of my writing so I’ll send them a copy and see what they think.
Thank you, again 🙂
I left a ridiculously long post for last week’s question, so shall restrain myself.
1. I’d say that, surprisingly, it’s good to trust your intuition. As a writer. What @literatureforthelight said above sparked that thought. Saying that you used fluffy or cliche phrases, indicates that you knew they were just that: sappy. While bearing in…[Read more]
I know the conventional wisdom is, “Write What You Know” but I think this can be interpreted very broadly. You may not have lost your entire family in war, for example, but most of us have experienced painful loss–the death of a friend or relative, or even a beloved pet. You may never have been “in love” but you’ve probably seen people around you…[Read more]
@literatureforthelight I love fairy-tale retellings! If you’re ever looking for a Beta reader…😉 What prompted you to do a retelling?
I’m currently working on a fantasy novel. So far, the main things I’ve been working with are hard choices, distrust, a man twisted by lies, a angry prince, a gold-hearted princess, a horse named Bruce, and a bunch…[Read more]
So nice to meet you then! What stories are you working on at the moment?
Btw. thanks for explaining the Panster/Plotter thing.😄 It’s hard to pin down meanings.
Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. I’ll probable try that.
Thank you, I do struggle with plot especially in larger works. I’ll use that.
That view does help, I’ll keep that in mind. But… What’s a Panster?
Yeah, I’m more like a kid ready to order off the adult menu than a five-year…[Read more]
@literatureforthelight *waves* Hey, have we met? I’m just curious, because I happen to be a Grace also, so I kinda got a soft spot for them.😁
This is a great question.
What I did was to start a novel that I viewed as “less important”…to just kinda get some experience. I need to get an idea of how writing a novel works, and…[Read more]
Heads up. We’re moving the guilds to the archives. You’ll still be able to access old posts, but you won’t be able to make new ones.

Hey SE people!
We’ve launched a cool new feature on the forum called groups.
You can find them in the nav bar like so:
Groups are hubs for writers to gather around something they share in common. They include a Facebook-like feed and most of them also include their own forums.
So far there are three types of groups:
1. Word war…[Read more]

I’m doing okay. Writing is… coming. Slowly. XD I…[Read more]
So I posted the blurb on Realm Makers. Verdict was it didn’t have a clear enough plot! (People also wanted a little stronger sense of the world it was set in.)
I’ve buckled down and tried a rewrite. What do you think?
@snaper *hands you chair*
So here’s what your suggestion would look like. The only thing I didn’t incorporate was that part about describing the setting you mentioned, Grace. I just couldn’t think of a good description off the top of my head.
I like how it reads. I think these were good ideas.
Exton has one…[Read more]
Participation was unfortunately low this time. But there were some great wordcounts.
Here’s the final rundown:
New Wessex: 3,036
Parami Alca: 2,240
And the individual with the highest word count was @hope-ann with 8,379
Coaching plan 1 is still open. Also, I’m opening one extra slot for option 2. Anyone want it?
Tagging some…[Read more]
The blank pages lay desolated after the last word war. Letters scattered the bone-white fields.
But now, an enemy has swept in with fresh blank pages.
WHO WILL STOP HIM? ARE YOU WITH ME?

I’m looking to ramp up a writing coaching program, and before I do I want to do some beta testing to get the kinks worked out and get some reviews.
So I’m opening up three coaching slots. It’ll be a discounted price, since you’ll be doing me a service by signing up. I’m looking for 1-3 people to fill these three packages:
1. An hour…[Read more]
