Hey friends and fellow writers!
So… I need help. I have a character who is kind of an avalanche of bitterness. She hates the situation she’s in, she hates the people around her, she hates herself…. Yeah… she’s kind of a mess.
Anyway, I’ve given this a lot of thought (I’ve been drafting this story for about five years now), and I’ve decided…[Read more]
@noodle-mum I’m surprised no one has mentioned the Chronicles of Narnia yet! C. S. Lewis even said it isn’t a good kids book if adults can’t enjoy it and adults can definitely enjoy it! I read it for book club last year and it was great! The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is my favorite of the series.
Probably Stephen Lawhead’s King Arthur books. They sort of lean toward historical fiction more but they have a definite fantasy tinge.
Other than that, I haven’t read many explicitly Christian fantasy novels.
@noodle-mum WING. FEATHER. SAGA. FOR. LIFE!!!
*grin* You asked. . .
Heyo! I don’t have any tips or anything to add to what has already been said XD But I thought I should poke my head in to say that everything you guys said is really helpful for me, cause I’m having to go through the struggle of developing a “magic” system, myself. 😛
@sarah-inkdragon That’s some really interesting terminology.
We describe magic in a given system as being on a scale from “soft” to “hard.” Generally, the harder the magic,…[Read more]
@noodle-mum Hey there! Great question. ^-^ I don’t really write magic much in this particular book, but there is a fairy-like race called Angorai that use natural elements that can seem a bit like magic. To them, it’s not magic. It’s just regular healing and such.
That’s an interesting question. In what I’m writing currently, I’m trying to keep the magic to minimum for a more subtle effect. I’ve no issues with magic as a tool. I prefer it as element that to adds complications rather than to solve problems. I think it’s more exciting to try to find a “normal” solution to a “supernatural” p…[Read more]
Hey SE people!
We’ve launched a cool new feature on the forum called groups.
You can find them in the nav bar like so:
Groups are hubs for writers to gather around something they share in common. They include a Facebook-like feed and most of them also include their own forums.
So far there are three types of groups:
1. Word war…[Read more]

Participation was unfortunately low this time. But there were some great wordcounts.
Here’s the final rundown:
New Wessex: 3,036
Parami Alca: 2,240
And the individual with the highest word count was @hope-ann with 8,379
Glad you’re feeling better.
My family is feeling much better. Me and my sisters are fully recovered and my mom is getting her energy back. Right now I’m just praying that my dad doesn’t get sick because he’s a pastor and he doesn’t have time to be sick during the Christmas season.
Coaching plan 1 is still open. Also, I’m opening one extra slot for option 2. Anyone want it?
Tagging some…[Read more]
The blank pages lay desolated after the last word war. Letters scattered the bone-white fields.
But now, an enemy has swept in with fresh blank pages.
WHO WILL STOP HIM? ARE YOU WITH ME?
The rules and submission form are linked here: https://forms.gle/q2Aa9EP4G1bReNaj8
Anyone is welcome to join.
I’m looking to ramp up a writing coaching program, and before I do I want to do some beta testing to get the kinks worked out and get some reviews.
So I’m opening up three coaching slots. It’ll be a discounted price, since you’ll be doing me a service by signing up. I’m looking for 1-3 people to fill these three packages:
1. An hour…[Read more]
Do you hear the pens blazing? The cry of writers in agony? The echoes of word counts soaring overhead?
Word War VII has begun. And you’re in it. See the link below to post your results at the end of the week. The link also includes the…[Read more]
