Yikes! I am REALLY late.
I actually accomplished my goals this week:
1) Finish outlining my next novella
2) Survive my first week at my new job
I’ll go ahead and post my goals for the week of Jan 21:
1) Write the first chapter of the novella (1500 – 2500 words)
2) Prepare to lead…[Read more]
I am WAAAY late to this conversation, and I both agree and disagree with the statement “you shouldn’t worry too much about how to write a story that glorifies God because if you’re a Christian you can’t help but express your love for the God you know.”
I DISAGREE because you can’t ‘drift’ or ‘coast’ into a God glorif…[Read more]
*gratefully takes mug* Thank you very much, @catwing . *takes a sip* Excellent coffee!
I do indeed have the ability to shift, though it has its limits. I must have something in my possession that belongs to the creature or person I wish to become.
*Takes another sip and glances around the hall*
Did I hear someone is looking for a scrapyard?…[Read more]
*Steps inside and shakes snow from her cloak*
*peers around the room at the the tea cups and tankards*
Hmmm. This looks like a welcoming gathering of creatures.
*flips back hood and steps forward*
*forgets floor is wet and she is in heels. immediately looses footing*
Might I request a cup of coffFFeeeEEEee…Oof! I’m all right. I’m all…[Read more]
@catwing – Thank you! My alter ego is actually a green-eyed shapeshifter, so I kinda feel like my story was a bit of a cheat. LOL The problem now is that this story has become yet another story idea launched into my TBW (To Be Written) folder which is already bursting at the seams. =) And that’s hilarious we both named our badgers Pepper. Great…[Read more]
“That’s cold!” The prince takes a surprised step back as I stare at his side. Since I specifically asked for white wine, my stunt does little more than reveal exactly what I didn’t want to see.
The wine instantly soaks through his shirt making it nearly transparent. He pulls the wet cotton away from his skin, and the Sigil of Serch Bythol is no l…[Read more]
**sees 2019 on the calendar**
Wow. 2018 disappeared quickly, and left a lot of lessons in its wake. All of which I am very grateful for, and the holidays are always a bit chaotic for us since “no” doesn’t seem to be a word we know how to use in this house…
**Makes note to get better at that**
Anyway….Because I started December…[Read more]
I feel almost too new to offer any suggestions, and it seems the moment after I joined the mighty Erekdale, life took a wildly unexpected turn, and I wasn’t able to participate as much as I wanted to.
However, I do agree that the forum threads themselves are confusing, and I get lost…but I do that IRL so take that for what it…[Read more]
Sorry that I popped into your critique thread. If I missed an etiquette, please excuse my newness.
I am sure you’ve already updated the document with all the previously mentioned suggestions, but I wanted to add my two cents. (And that’s about all my comments are worth. =))
I like the story and the premise. I made notes inline and agree with what has already been suggested. Great job.
I LOVED this story! It is right up my alley.
1. Characters. What do you think? Though there is quite the cast with the family and Aeldń, but you did a great job of giving them all a place in the scene without overwhelming the reader with descriptions and bouncing dialog. I like Ashtwyn’s character and her journey in this scene, and I REALLY wa…[Read more]
Hmmmm….Ice cream, eh?
**opens freezer door**
**Stares at two tubs indecisively**
Vanilla or Ben and Jerry’s Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz?
**shrugs and grabs both containers**
Vanilla is usually my go to. It pairs well with almost any other dessert. Pie? Yes. Ala mode, please. Cookies? Make sandwiches. Root beer? Float some on top! Like…[Read more]
Okay – I added my two cents to the Document of Ideas. =)
Wow. I loved reading all the backstory for your characters @Sarah-inkdragon! They are so wonderfully detailed. Great job!
I am only in the beginnings of working out how to use all these educated techniques before I start to write a story rather than relying on my developmental editor to help me fix it later. Thankfully, she is a patient soul! =…[Read more]
I can’t wait to get to know everyone. I already know I’m going to learn a lot.
I’M SO EXCITED!
Sorry. I’ll eventually learn to use my inside voice. I get loud when I get excited.
I MADE IT!
**slaps hand over her mouth and waits wide eyed for the echo to die off**
Sorry. I get loud when I’m excited. I hope I didn’t frighten anyone.
So. I’ve read the thread…
**folds hands behind back and drags her toe in the dirt**
I’ve never participated in full role play before. Like, at all.
BUT – I am…[Read more]
I’ve been super busy and haven’t had time to respond or even read all the responses. **insert joy for having a wonderfully full life** I plan to get caught up this weekend.
I am new. =) I’ll stumble around and trip over a few unspoken lines before I get this all figured out. I’m a bit of a rebel that way.
