There have been countless times that I forget about a part of my story then in a later chapter write something that completely ruins that first part. I know I’m rambling so here’s an example… We’ve been talking about Tara. I completely forgot about her and then named a mermaid Zara I will definitely have to change that.
Oh no! I hate wh…[Read more]
I guess just friends. That might change later on but for now they can just be friends who bug each other like crazy. (I’m the writer yet I sound so clueless XD)
Nice! I love how the closer friends are, the more they act like siblings. Also known as managing to bug each other each other 24/7 but still taking bullets for the other person. X…[Read more]
Rough drafts are always the worst but it probably would’ve been so much better if I had known what I was doing, lol.
I couldn’t agree more. Though I suppose it’s a learn as you go type of thing. So, maybe we couldn’t have known everything at the beginning anyways. XD
At least for me because I’m super sarcastic XD
Same. It’s fun lol…[Read more]
To me, the dwarfs, or whatever you want to call them, are just very southern
Ah that’s great! Southern Dwarves. I love it! XD
Though, I get what you mean about coming up with stuff before you have more of an idea of what you’re doing. It ends up needing a lot of modifying. At least for me it does. Maybe I’m just too unorganized to come up…[Read more]
I’m not positive, but I’d say yes! It could totally apply, especially since Dutch and German cultures are pretty close!
Well, thanks for your thoughts! 🙂
It reminds me that there’s a traditional Amazigh (Berber) wedding custom that the bride’s dowry is a gold belt.
I didn’t know that. That’s such a cool type of dowry!
Ah this is a great idea! Cultural quirks are so interesting and fun. 🙂
In rural Mexico, when two people get married part of the ceremony is the handing over of the money box to the bride. They think the woman is more trustworthy, so the groom gets to earn the money, but the bride gets to manage it.
Another rural Mexico one;…[Read more]
Lol, I kinda wanted to but I didn’t.
Probably for the better. XD
Ok, neat! I have dwarves and a dragon in my story too! (Actually at the moment their elves, but when people think of elves most people picture the ones like on LOTR and that’s not how these are so I’ve been thinking about changing their title to either dwarves or maybe even…
That’s so cool! I love how you’ve thought things out down to the mechanics of your world’s gravity! I took the easy route and just made mine a sphere with earth-like physics. 😛
Haha, thanks for the encouragement. 🙂
My friends would pronounce mine different then how I would, so I just changed it to what they thought it…
I’m glad you found a way to make it all work out! I’m still working on smoothing out all the wrinkles of mine, but I’ll get there…eventually. 😛
It’s either that or we’re both totally crazy XD
Well, I’d rather be crazy with someone else than crazy alone. XD
Ugh, I hate coming up with world names… People are easy, there are billi…
Ha ha, gallivanting is a great word
Yes, isn’t it? It’s one of my favorites. 😛
I literally said “aw” out loud
Your reaction is making me smile now, too. 🙂
Thanks! It took me forever to get all the pieces to fit…
Right? There’s always so many little things and timelines that have to line up. And then of course…[Read more]
Why thank you, I only learned from the best. 😛
Oh, ok! Nice! That sounds like it makes for a really cool plot.
I like your name choices too. They seem fitting for their looks. Ya know how some people just ‘look’ like they have this certain name that fits them perfectly? Though, I don’t know maybe that’s is just my weird brain.
I don’t…[Read more]
Thanks! I had a lot of fun with it. I will blame you if I end up making collages for everything now. XD
Ohhhh! I read it earlier but I guess it didn’t register in my brain as yours. Silly me. But yes! More random details are fun! Feel free to dump them on me. Also, why is the Uncle trying to poison Eliana? Or is that…[Read more]
Haha no, I get that, I’m a hybrid too. Something between an INFJ and an INFP.
I have taken the enneagram, but I can’t say I know as much about it as I do the MBTI. A friend had me take it a couple months ago and all I remember was I was a 9, which was “the peacemaker” or something like that. What does your 4w5 mean?
Oh goodness yes!…[Read more]
Hey there! Welcome to Story Embers!
I have a brother and a close friend who are both INTP. You guys are great. XD
Do you have a favorite of Tolkien’s books?
Thanks! And 21k is definitely not pathetic! Mine is mostly brain dumps and I bet half of it will be deleted eventually. 🙂
Ya know what, I think I will try my hand at collages. I’ll be right back. *Embarks on collage making rabbit trail* *returns an embarrassing amount of time later after having scrolled through way too many pretty…[Read more]
Hey there, welcome back! 🙂
Ooh Sci-fi Shakespeare! That sounds fun! It reminds me a little of the StarWars Shakespeare by Ian Doescher. Have you heard of them?
Hmm.. what do I like to write with. I’d say if I know the general idea of what I’m writing, then typing. However, if it’s just brainstorming or organizing different ideas…[Read more]
That’s alright! Don’t worry about it. 🙂
Yeah, we did have fun! It doesn’t reassure me about learning to drive though. My younger sister has been nagging me about it saying she wants me to get my license so I can drive her places and I’m just like, “Are you kidding? I’ll crash into a stopsign at 5mph and still kill us both.” XD
Wow! All your guys’ stories sound great! Your collages are really nice too, but unfortunately I can’t return the pleasantry and show you one. (I’ve never done collages.) However, I can type stuff so here we go.
In my story there are two main races that once ruled together over the other races. 1) The Illians, who were gifted with healing and 2)…[Read more]
Yay! Glad you feel good with what you originally wanted. It’s always sad to me when authors don’t write what they want to write just because their readers like something else better.
And you do have a good point about not necessarily “Christian” books still being able to have important truths. I guess I had never thought that books…[Read more]
In academic situations (aka highschool exams lol), it’s that paragraph that introduces a literary piece. Normally, it has the author, what journal, book, magazine, etc. it was written in, and it provides a little context.
For non-highschool exam situations, it’s similar. It’s that blob (or blurb, if you prefer) that’s on the…[Read more]
