  • It seems like she’ll live with a bit of care, so that’s good. If she survives, I’m gonna have to figure out how to make a chicken prosthetic leg.

    Yeah, I keep telling myself that even a little progress is still progress. I was just hoping to hit 20 thousand instead of ten.

    Since I’m discovery writing, my characters often say strange things where…[Read more]

  • Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply. I’ve had a long week. We’ve had multiple raccoon attacks on our quail and chickens. Just yesterday I found a chick with a leg missing. Though I’ve been working with chickens for years, I’ve learned so much this week; mainly first aid.

    I’ve kept up with my 100-for-100 by cramming out the bare minimum before…[Read more]

  • Yeah, some characters seem to almost put themselves together and it feels like a breeze to write them.

    My main character was the whole inspiration for the story so she’s definitely my favorite. Funny that both of the characters you mentioned as being protective because my main character is literally a guard.😆 It’s a forced protectiveness at…[Read more]

    Yeah, I’ve been counting character pages where I try to get a better idea of their background, traits and POV voice. Honestly, idea pages are some of my favorite things to do.

    Oh, don’t know if you already use this, but I use this site to find cool names based of their meanings and race.               https://meaning-of-names.com/

    OK!!  This time I know I had responded! It just didn’t send?

    From now on I’ll watch this post like a bluebird watches her neighbors’ nest! No mistakes!

    *deep breath* ….Anyways.

    I’ve heard of a lot of people who are having trouble with amazon shipping right now. People are usually pretty understanding about these things.

    Hey, if you need…[Read more]

  • @r-m-archer

    Oh my mashed potatoes, I thought I had replied days ago! Apparently, I only replied in my head; or just never clicked send. 🤦

    Anyways……

    I was more than happy to share about your launch. How did it go?

    How are you doing on your 100-for-100?

  • Haha, see I can’t even tell the difference. All I know is that Batman is DC and the old versions were the best.

    True, true, I’m just a world-building junkie 😆

    🎉Your book launch tomorrow! 💐  Good luck, and let me know if there’s anything I can do.

  • I’ve never watched the Smallville show, not a big Marvel fan. Is it any good?

    That’s funny because I haven’t read Mistborn yet.  I hate it when the library only has part of a series. I started reading the X-Wing series only to find my library just had the first and eighth books.🤦

    That’s actually pretty smart and if you don’t mind, I think I’ll…[Read more]

  • @r-m-archer   Good, I’ll tag you in it.😃

    Hmmm, my magic system is more nature-based. Do you know how the stereotypical superhero backstory has them falling into a vat of toxic waste, but instead of dying, they get superpowers? Well, in mine there’s a certain mineral that has toxic properties, some who come in contact with it become ill, develop m…[Read more]

  • @r-m-archer

    Wow! 🎉That must be so exciting! Hey do you have any promotional images for your book, because if you don’t mind I could share it on my social?

     

    I however, have never finished anything, lol. I get to distracted by shiny new ideas. Which leads to what i’m currently doing which is discovery writing my way through an epic-fantsy duo…[Read more]

  • Just wanted to know if anyone else on here is taking part in the 100-for-100 challenge hosted by Goteenwriters.

    I probably should have posted this before the challenge started, but hey, hindsight is 20/20.¯_(ツ)_/¯

    Anyways, today is day 5 of the challenge and I wanted to see how many are participating. Mainly for the purpose of sharing what we’…[Read more]

    @emma-walker

    Oh goodness I just noticed that you responded!🤦 Sorry.

    My family didn’t seem to notice, or care, about the change in Ahsoka either. Not to mention that whoever wrote the story didn’t know his pancakes from his flap-jacks when it came the history of the Jedi and Star Wars as a whole. Just, UGGGHHh, absolutely no attention to detail…[Read more]

  • Violet replied to the topic Hi in the forum Introduce Yourself 1 year, 9 months ago

    Yay, another person who prefers the originals! ヽ(^ᗜ^)ノ

    My Favorite character would have to be Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    Though Ahsoka is definitely in my top ten favorite characters. “The Mandalorian” doesn’t degrade my opinion of her because I personally don’t consider Disney canon (except for “Rouge One” of course which was amazing). I mean they didn’…[Read more]

  • Violet replied to the topic Hi in the forum Introduce Yourself 1 year, 9 months ago

    Hi Emma. 🎉Welcome to Story Embers!

    I love Star Wars with a passion.  Do you have a synopsis for your Fan-fic or is it still in the  planning stages?

    Oh and which movie and characters are your favorite? 🙂

  • Violet replied to the topic Hi everyone! in the forum Introduce Yourself 2 years, 5 months ago

    @imwritehere1920    Yay, another Star Wars fan. Though I must admit I’m not a fan of the new stuff. My favorite character is definitely Obi-Wan Kenobi. My favorite background character though is Zam Wessel.

    I’ve never seen the movie. I’ve got a huge number of movies I need to watch that are based off books I’ve read. lol. Anna and the Kind of S…[Read more]

  • Violet replied to the topic Hi everyone! in the forum Introduce Yourself 2 years, 5 months ago

    @imwritehere1920  Welcome to Story Embers! I know you’ll love it here.
    I love medieval fantasy too. Have you read “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”?
    If you like dystopian mixed with some super villain action could I suggest The Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson.
    Do you like Star Wars?

    I tend to ask a lot of questions. Here have…[Read more]

  • @r-m-archer  That’s too bad. *crosses finger for link to come out soon* Yeah there are some pretty obscure courses. There’s even some about understanding cats, lol

     

    @r-m-archer  &  @evelyn   Lol, why has everyone heard of this joke but me. One of the skillshare teachers kept saying the first line and not giving the punch line.

  • I just thought I’d share this, if someone didn’t know. For all you students out there, if you have a .edu e-mail you can get two months free on Skillshare. No I’m not sponsored, lol. I’ve been using this for about three weeks now and I’ve actually learned stuff, go figure.

    If you’re like me and have had a little extra time on your hands then yo…[Read more]
