Next is a game that my family used to play every time the power went out. I thought it would work well with Story Embers.
Next is very simple.
1. You may only add one sentence.
2. Your sentence must relate to what has already been written.
And that’s it.
So, here is the first sentence, for those who would like to play. 🙂
The rain spattered…[Read more]
My goodness yes! That bothers me so much! Especially when they’re 14 and have no concept of what being “in love” is. *cough cough Snow White cough cough* I do accept that maybe when a person first saw someone they immediately knew the relationship had potential, but you can’t love, like actually love, someone solely based…[Read more]
Oh! Dragon day festival is a good one too. Does it have a date that translates to human time? If so I may have to play Leeli’s song on a loop…so long as my family doesn’t go to crazy from it. 🙂
My parents are linguists so I never hear the end of it lol.
You got them all though! Good job. 😀
Oooh, good question.
I think brother-sister relationships are my favorite, followed by a close second of guy-girl best friend relationships. Maybe also guy-girl best friend relationships that develop into romantic ones. I think the common denominator here is just guy-girl something haha. I like writing about interactions…[Read more]
I really enjoyed it! And no apologizing for length. When you enjoy something, length is meaningless. For example, let’s just compare this to a reading assignment I had this morning. 5 paragraphs of instructions on preparing a microscope slide that was over-saturated with sophisticated words no one uses. *Brief pause to consider…[Read more]
Those sound great! Do you have a favorite between sunrises and sunsets? Personally, I like sunsets better. I’m always too tired to fully appreciate sunrises.
I think that makes sense. It seems a bit complicated, but I guess good stories and plots are never simple. If you ever want to post parts of the stories (or the whole thing! :)…[Read more]
I agree with you on that. Most of my favorites are ones that I can relate to. I especially find myself rooting for the characters who don’t get enough attention or love from other characters. Which is actually kind of ironic, since then I never really like the main characters that the author wants me like because I think they get too…[Read more]
Ooh honey muffins sounds good. And haha I understand choosing hiking over blindplopping.
There’s always next year. 🙂
So, I don’t know about you guys, but I personally think fictional holidays are a great excuse to eat cake.
Accordingly, today I made cake and celebrated Biblo and Frodo’s birthday with a couple of friends. (While maintaining social distance. Stay safe, guys. :D).
Do you guys have any favorite fictional holidays or traditions you got from books?
Yesss. Team Random for the win. 😛
Oh, ok. Well in any case I still like how it’s spelled. 🙂
Fun! What are your poetry and fantasy mostly about? My poetry is mostly my rambling thoughts, so not always very pretty. It’s more of a mental processing method haha.
That makes sense. I have a list of names for pets somewhere, even though I’m not allowed to have one. But…[Read more]
Will do. Though, it might be awhile before I see her with all the social distancing stuff haha.
Yes, they are all so lovable, and making that many lovable characters is not easy. So, Andrew Peterson, you have my respect.
And don’t worry about it! Long isn’t bad! As I was saying to Thwapling, rambling is one of my many *talents*,…[Read more]
Your prediction is correct. I wouldn’t be able to decide a favorite of all the fictional characters out there, but maybe, I could one of my own. So, even though I do love all of my little characters, Offo is probably my favorite. Just a quiet, slightly eccentric and quirky, but caring and peace-seeking alchemist in need of some love.
Now my…[Read more]
Hey, Kaytelyn! Welcome!
Your name is so pretty! I don’t think I’ve ever seen it spelled like that before.
Fantasy and poetry are my favorites too! Though, honestly I’m not that great at poetry, but I suppose no one can really be perfect at something, right?
That sounds exciting! Have you already decided on what you’ll name your…[Read more]
She’d be mostly confused since she tends to take everything literally, no matter people’s tones. The best part of it though, is she thinks she knows what sarcasm is, so she’ll be what she calls “sarcastic” and then get annoyed when the rest of my family is just trying not to laugh.
Aw thank you! It’s a delight talking to…[Read more]
Fantasy is what I play with mostly, too. I’ve tried other types, but eh it just doesn’t go so well haha.
Do you have a favorite of those many bookshops you have found? If any of them are chain stores, can you recommend one? 🙂
Thank you so much! Those were super helpful! I think I fixed all the grammar stuff.
And don’t worry about your critiquing sounding harsh.
“If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise. ” (Prov. 15:31)
And I do believe you mean constructive, not destructive criticisms. 🙂
Oh that’s terrible! I’m sorry for you. My sister doesn’t understand sarcasm so she doesn’t get half of what my brother and I joke about either.
Haha and your rambling thoughts have been very pleasant, thank you. 😀
