    I’ve got Faith Blum, which one did you get last year? πŸ™‚ Yes, it’s been really helpful, I feel like I’ve learned a lot from her.

    Yeah, the guilds take a bit of getting used to when it comes to figuring out how things are done, but everyone really is super nice. πŸ™‚ They’re a great bunch and really fun.

    I think that’s a great idea for story planning! Tension, theme, and a puzzle to solve are all really important for this project. πŸ™‚

    Oh fantasy is great! What is…[Read more]

    @literatureforthelight

    Thank you so much for reviewing my story! I’m really glad that it encouraged you, I wrote it as a reminder to myself that God is our hope amid this dark culture. Knowing that you were encouraged by it, encourages me by showing that the story is doing its job. πŸ™‚ Despite my trouble with grammar.

    I think I fixed the view…[Read more]

    It’s nice to meet you to! So when did you join us? πŸ™‚ I’ve been on here for a while now, but I’m not always as active as I should be. Yes, character creation is so much fun!

    I do enjoy a good mystery novel. I’ve read several Agatha Christie’s books especially the ones with Miss Marple, but I think Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and G. K.…[Read more]

  • Oh guys, we should make sure we have unique characters. Such as Sherlock Holmes he was super observent and a master of disguise, he studied human nature and random facts that he knew would help him with cases. Like his study of cigar ashes. It sounds useless but it really did give him clues. He was respectful, well mannered but blunt. Part of the…[Read more]

    I think our mystery ought to have some creative point, a theme, a good point. As a good mystery it should make the reader think, and throw something at them that they didn’t see coming.

    Hi @noodle-mum ! πŸ™‚ I don’t think we’ve met before, are you new to the guild?

    I think murder mysteries are overdone to, in fact if you look at nearly any…[Read more]

    @bama-rose
    Wow, thanks for all your help editing! πŸ™‚ I looked it over and it helped a lot! There were quite a few things I didn’t catch that needed to be fixed that you caught. If I had the money I’d hire you as my editor. πŸ™‚

    I’m really glad you liked the story, it’s something I’ve been struggling with to recently. There’s several people at my…[Read more]

    I fixed it! πŸ™‚ Sorry about that, I posted the wrong link.

    Hey everybody! 😊 So I could use some help with my short story, it’s just a 15 minute read at the most. I’m expected to submit it on Wednesday and I want to make sure that the grammar, punctuation and theme are all perfect. I’m worried I might have missed something, so any constructive criticism you have would be helpful! Thanks guys! &#x1f…[Read more]

  • Mysteries have so much potential. πŸ™‚ It could take place anywhere, like in an old abandoned castle, or a spooky manor, and/or a locked room mystery, or anything as random as a lake. Literally anywhere people want to write it. But people should also be thinking about what kind of mystery they want to write about. Such as was something valuable…[Read more]

    @eden-anderson
    I think most young girls do start with some femininity, even tomboys. They know they’re not boys even though they might not fully understand why. But I do think it’s something that in our society needs to be encouraged and perhaps even taught to some degree, because it’s not something our society values.
    What do you mean by her…[Read more]

    Don’t be terrified, most nurseries are used to volunteers who don’t have any experience yet. πŸ™‚ Holding babies isn’t too hard, you support the head and the rear and be careful. But if they’re young you have to make sure that you are supporting the head and neck. If they’re under two months they might not be able to hold thier head up…[Read more]

  • Half way through reading this, it suddenly felt like everything clicked. Everything that I had ever heard about writing and the stories that had captured my heart the most became your strongest advocates for why your point was true. Thank you for posting this.

  • @eden-anderson

    Not many people have studied this topic, I wouldn’t even say that I had studied what femininity means. πŸ™‚ But what I would define femininity as part of what makes women women and not men. God made us different, men should be masculine and not feminine, just like women should be feminine and not masculine. At least that’s what I…[Read more]

    @kate

    Thank you for answering my question. πŸ™‚ I’m encouraged to hear you believe as I do that being feminine is a strength and that God can give us the strength to become this. But I was wondering, do you think God made all women to be feminine? Different from men in a way that is more than physical?

    Everyone is different and I wouldn’t expect…[Read more]

    @eden-anderson

    Yes, Kate answered the question well and I agree with her, but I was curious to know what you would say about it. πŸ™‚ I already know what I believe, but I’m curious to know what you believe. Let me ask the question a bit differently: Do you see being feminine as something worth doing? Something worth learning as a girl grows up? πŸ™‚

  • Rachel replied to the topic Eowyn in the forum New Wessex Writing Discussions 1 week ago

    @kate

    Yes, I thought so to. πŸ™‚

     

    @cassandraia

    I just wanted to encourage your desire of being a wife and possibly a mother someday. That’s not only a beautiful goal, but I think also a very noble one. πŸ™‚ Personally being a wife is one of the most satisfying areas of my life and after being married for nearly two years now it just keeps getting…[Read more]

    @kate

    Enlightening analysis! πŸ™‚ I hadn’t thought of this character for a while, but you really put her in a different light for me and brought up traits that I had never thought about in her before.

    And I loved what you said to Noah about feminism being a spiritual disease. The problem with feminism is that it takes the place of God and becomes…[Read more]
