<p></p><p> Well I certainly hope that’s a good idea cos that’s what I’m doing too! <3 </p><p> Actually I have a lot of A and B points and it’s the between that gets me. I’m a natural pantser who’s hit stride plantsing so improvising isn’t a problem with me as much as keeping focused. I actually did shortstory the very end of my WIP but m…[Read more]
Lupa titled her head, thinking about her shapeshifting friends.
“They usually only change to match the appearance of the creature. Mine go from dark brown to gold, Ryuu’s from ice blue to midnight blue, and Nascha’s black to pale brown.” She returned her gaze to Alessio, finally not squinting as much in the sunlight. “There’s nothing terribly…[Read more]
So glad to meet you…uh virtually…I mean. 😉
I have been writing for 🤭mmmrmrmh years…okay a number greater than 20. [Don’t judge.] 😲
I’ve read and bought many books on writing, taken courses, follow writing blogs, attended webinars with famous and semi-famous authors and heard all of the techniques…[Read more]
Aha! I finally have a window of time in which to critique your piece!
1. Is there anything that stood out to you as intriguing about this scene?
Yes. I’m wanting to learn more about the encounter with the Troll, plus get some more character development. Who is the “I”? And, like Cathy said, I’m…[Read more]
*could listen to your accent all day* *tries mimicking it* *reads your story with you with your accent* *fails miserably*
The best part about this (not including the melodic reading) is that I know who Liorah and Gavril are and I know some of the setting and worldbuilding. *cackle*
1. Is there anything…[Read more]
I would love to submit one! I have a short story I’m working on draft 1 of, and I could fit it into a couple scenes 🙂 So I may read it when I’ve finished. :))
Aw, thank you!!! I honestly had no idea what I was going to do with the prompt I got. XD
(BTW… you should submit a story of your own! I’ll listen and critique it…)
Nice to meet you! 🙂
I honestly don’t have any thoughts either way on dividing the story into four parts, on if it will work or not. 🤷♀️
I don’t know if this is helpful, but I recently had issues with drafting after my midpoint as well. I had a clear climax scene in mind and my outline included general notes on how eve…[Read more]

Good evening, Erynne!
Thank you for your response! Delighted to have you join this topic and discussion. No need to apologize for the delay.
I totally understand. Today was a busy day for me too. Sorry, I am so late getting back here to your reply. (writing this at night)
That is a pretty good one!
You’ve got int…[Read more]
I’m in the middle of yours now. I’ve gotta pause and continue it later, but I absolutely love it! And your accent as well! And I agree with those who’ve said you read it beautifully. I find that your accent (and any nervousness that came through as you read) only added to the narration. It feels real. Feels dangerous. Feels…
The castle crackled. It sounded like an entirely wrong laugh.
“My oh my, this one gets me! We’re here to enjoy ourselves right?!
I like you, in fact, it’s teleportation! You’ll have to guess the other two goose properties but teleportation is the first, everyone welcome Kongar the Assassin to the Castle!”
I cringed as the castle bl…[Read more]
Hello! First of all, bravo on writing such a big book! *Applause* That’s a victory in and of itself. And you’re on the third draft already, that’s an even bigger victory!
I’m in the middle of a fantasy trilogy, nearing the end of book two. Book 2 is ending up quite hefty, it’s probably going to pass the 100k mark.
I had a lot of…[Read more]
SEEN IS BEAUTIFUL
I LOVE IT
I cried at the ending
Simply wonderful. And your voice is perfect for that narration!!

Meira froze, instinctively catching the bandages Chantara tossed at her. Her hands shook, but she gratefully wove the bandages around her injuries, too touched by the kind gesture to mention she had an overabundance of bandages tucked in every pocket of her dark pink garments.
Because she’s glass.
“Darling oh darling are you hurt dearie?! Let me…[Read more]
I don’t think it’s a bad idea. If bite-size pieces help you figure out the entirety, it may be helpful.

That’s so funny! *Grins mischievously at inner critic*
@morreafirebird Well, there’s no reason it couldn’t be done, but since it didn’t work for you last time, I feel like if at all possible outlining before hand will be worth it.
If you’re unsure what goes between the mid point and the third plot point, it might be a sign your midpoint isn’t strong enough. The mid point is when your character…[Read more]
So, I have a dilemma regarding my 200k epic fantasy novel that I’m hoping to get some thoughts on. But first, a little background:
I wrote the second draft of my epic fantasy last year. Rewrite might be a better word, since it was radically different from the first draft. I outlined most of it, though the plan for the second half of the book was…[Read more]
