    Okay, haha. Wasn’t sure if I had seen you elsewhere or not.

    @lonathecat

    Hello!

    I couldn’t help noticing your introduction as I was looking around Story Embers, and when I saw your picture, something registered. I recognize your picture, but I’m not sure from where, or if it’s just similar to something I’ve seen somewhere else. The only places I can think of seeing you would be here, or maybe during a…[Read more]

  • Oh, and thanks about my WIP. 🙂 I’m not really working on that one anymore, but I might finish it sometime. The one I’m working on now is actually by far my favourite story that I’ve thought of yet. I’ll change my profile so it has that as the WIP instead.

  • @rose-colored-fancy

    Glad I could help! 🙂  I never thought of it myself either, so don’t feel bad. My friend had to give me the idea as well. Haha, that’s why there are writing groups like this and others, to share advice and the little things that we know. Even if the high majority of us on here are amateurs, we all know at least a few things…[Read more]

  • Hey, @rose-colored-fancy. I read your question and found myself quite intrigued with your story and problem.

    On a side note, your story sounds amazing, and I’m not saying that lightly. When I first started reading to see if I could help you at all, I got drawn into the world you described in a few sentences. 🙂 Sounds amazing, and I wish you well…[Read more]

    Cool! I’m not biracial, but I think that would be awesome! My mom does sorta wonder if there is some African-American blood on her side though, because some of the features in our family look like it. Like my hair. You can’t really tell in the picture, but my hair is really kinky and big, so it sorta looks like a white version of African-American…[Read more]

    Okay, I sorta guessed you were all sisters and that was your mom, but I wasn’t sure. And I wasn’t sure which one was you. 😛 You really all do look a ton alike though! Hahaha

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Just curious, are all of you in your profile picture related? If you don’t want me to know, that’s fine, I was just looking at it and realized all of you look related. Your smiles especially look alike.

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Ya, it’s fun!

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Haha, thanks! I know I’m super late, but I keep forgetting to check emails and such.

    Even though I live in Canada and am totally a Canadian, both my parents are from the States, so we celebrate both Canadian and American Thanksgiving. That way we get double the good food! hahaha
    And also because we’re often moose hunting over Canadian…[Read more]

    I’ll try to read that soon. I won’t make any promises though. 😛

    @claire-h

    I’ve written some pieces, but when I mentioned writing music I meant like songs with words. I’m hoping to record them soon and make an album, which’ll be super cool to have!

    No, I don’t really have a favourite song. I like most of the ones I learn. Oh, there is a duet my friend and I are learning for our piano recital at the end of the…[Read more]

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 2 months ago

    Oh, no problem. I’ve been busy too and it’s not even opening season for anything here. Lol. Moose hunting opened a month or so ago, I don’t really keep track. 😛

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 2 months, 1 week ago

    Fall is really pretty here, with all the changing leaves and stuff, but one of the annoying things about it, is that it gets pretty cold so it’s too cold for hoodies, but not cold enough for a winter coat. Sort of annoying, but I still like it.

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 2 months, 1 week ago

    Lol, ya, I know plenty of people up here who don’t like winter more than the other seasons. It’s actually more common for me to meet people who like summer better than winter, despite the awesomeness of it. 😉 Lol Probably because most people find winter slightly depressing because there’s not much daylight. But I don’t mind, since my favourite…[Read more]

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 2 months, 1 week ago

    Pretty good over all. Lol, ya, the election is being talked about here as well, because both my parents are from the States. It’s mostly Daddy who talks about it though.

    My family just sold our house but hasn’t found another place to live yet, so we’re staying in a friend’s house who’s gone.

    The best part of my life right now…? 😉

  • @claire-h

    We had to move because we sold our house, but haven’t found another house to buy yet. So we’re just staying at a friend’s house who’s gone. It’s a bit of a pain, but keeps me on my toes. Lol

    I don’t know any language good enough to read in it, but that sounds interesting. But I can imagine how annoying that can be to not have time for…[Read more]

  • @beth20

    Thanks! 🙂 Things are settling down more, so I’ll have a bit more time, but since school started, I’m busy with that all morning and till the afternoon.

  • Hey @claire-h and @purpleturtle! Haven’t seen you guys around in a while, though that’s probably because I haven’t been around much myself. Lol.

    How are ya doing?

    • @olivia We are doing fine! Nothing much exciting going on here in Missouri besides the election. How are you doing?

    • Glad you guys are doing good up there! I can’t agree with you on your view though! Winter is my second favorite season. Maybe I would like it better if we got more snow here. XD Fall is my favorite because of the changing leaves and the moderately cool temperatures. It’s starting to get colder here and there was frost on the ground this morning!…[Read more]

    • Yeah, it’s kinda like that here. Sorry I didn’t respond sooner, because it is deer season now, so I was busy getting ready and yesterday was opening day. We didn’t see anything but one tiny doe though. 🙁

      • Oh, no problem. I’ve been busy too and it’s not even opening season for anything here. Lol. Moose hunting opened a month or so ago, I don’t really keep track. 😛

    • Yeah, deer season ends Tuesday, but at least I killed a buck!
