She has been checking it, @naiya-dyani. I asked her to be sure.
Merry Christmas everyone!
I just wanted to post and ask about this real quick while it was on my mind. My sister reminded me today that she applied to join the forum around a month ago, and she still hasn’t heard anything back either way.
Also (this is unrelated), we were both thinking that the mobile version of the blog is a little difficult to…[Read more]
Inspired by your reply @daeus-lamb, I decided to do some research on INFP villains. Not surprisingly, I couldn’t readily come up with any very good examples of INFP villains.
I did read a comment, however, where someone mentioned how they often saw INFPs as protagonists and sidekicks, and the reason why INFP villains are so uncommon came to…[Read more]
@daeus-lamb , I’m sorry to contradict what you say, but I am afraid that your analysis of the INFP, as well as the example you gave, might be misleading to Naiya.
First of all, Kylo Ren isn’t a very stable character, personality-wise, so he is difficult to type, but I firmly disagree with the INFP assessment.
The closest personality to his…[Read more]
I’m glad I was able to help, Naiya! 🙂
Cool! My family has some Irish heritage as well. We used to think that our surname “O’Bier” was Irish too but it’s not. It’s actually French, or possibly even German. 🙂
One more thing: I don’t know if you’ve read The Hunger Games but my sister loves those books because the main character, Katniss Everdeen, is an INTJ. That might give you some ideas as well. 🙂
Also, I read those descriptions to my mom and sister before submitting them, just to make sure they were okay with it, and their reactions were pretty much as I anticipated.
My Sherlock-like sister thought that I wasn’t nearly flattering enough in my description of her analytical abilities and predictive powers. 😉
I will attempt to do her…[Read more]
I have an older sister who is an INTJ, and my mom is an INFP. I don’t think I know any guys who are INFPs, but I read Ordeal by Innocence by Agatha Christie that has a character in it that seemed like the male counterpart of my mom. His name is Arthur Calgary. It’s a very good book if you like mysteries, and one of my favorites by that author. If…[Read more]
I just saw the words “Sci-Fi” and “Serial Story”. Let me at it! XD
I’ll definitely be checking it out. Cool name, by the way, @quinn-ofallon. Is that your real name or a pseudonym?
I can’t think of that word, “pseudonym” anymore without cracking up ever since my sister thought it was some kind of drug. XD
We like to joke that Pseudonym is the…[Read more]
I just wrote this (literally) on an impulse. I haven’t edited it much yet. I just felt like sharing it. It doesn’t have a name.
Also, I like your poem, @k-a-grey . 🙂
“I’m tired”, I roll over and say
I drop my pen and leave it to lay
Gathering dust, I used to play
With words, now my fingers rust
I used to write, but now I must
My heart is…[Read more]
That story is hilarious, @edmund-lloyd-fletcher! XD Thanks for the example.
In my current WIP (a science fantasy novel), I have several scientist characters. I was wondering if any of you have family or friends who are scientists and if you have any tips for writing about them.
I’m already doing research, and I joined Reddit (which is full of cool information). I also intend to try and interview some…[Read more]

Interesting, thought-provoking article! ☺Yes, choosing a book at the bookstore can be difficult. I’ve been disappointed many times before. The first line of a book helps me figure out if there’s a chance I might be able to trust the author that they have enough skill to craft a thoroughly worthwhile tale. If it looks interesting, I’ll flip through…[Read more]
RESOURCES! *pounces like a cat* Thank you! 😀
I’m a fantasy writer who is being turned to the sci-fi side of the Force. XD
I’d like to be part of both boards. An art board sounds like a fantastic idea too. 🙂
This sounds like an awesome idea, @gabriellepollack . I’m very fond of Pinterest and like to pin unusual words, scenery, prompts, and other writing inspiration. I would be happy to help if I can. 🙂
Yes, I am, @the-fledgling-artist . At this point, I’m mainly working on improving my rusty art skills, so I haven’t gotten very far beyond story planning and character design.
I’m currently working on a superhero comic (possibly webcomic) I’m calling The Adventures of Jellyman and Butterboy. It’s about a clever, super-intelligent sidekick who a…[Read more]
I was half joking about the blacklist. 😉 Thanks, @sarah-inkdragon . That’s encouraging and helpful. 🙂
I think watercolor looks beautiful. I never had any talent with it in art class, but that was a long time ago. It might be worth trying again. 🙂
I’m currently working on a design for an aqua dragon. It’s just something I wanted to draw, but I may use it in a story or comic.
I’ll probably color it with colored pencils. I’m a bit new to colored…[Read more]
