Hi Zee, thank you so much for the advice! Great minds must think alike because Unnamed Character is indeed a minor villain who’s constantly getting in Liorah’s way. He has a lot more ‘screen-time’ than Hakan, so that helps. I actually have several antagonists, (not all villains, some mean well, they just get in Liorah’s way.) and I was…[Read more]

T means turbulent (more emotional), and A is assertive (which is more confident). I’m an ENFP-T.
Saturdays and Sundays are the weekend, so no, we don’t go to school. I could rephrase it as “what would you do to relax after a long and stressful week?”
Thanks, both of you! This is really helpful.
Heads up. We’re moving the guilds to the archives. You’ll still be able to access old posts, but you won’t be able to make new ones.

I have an interesting discussion question posed by one of our newsletter subscribers, Madelyn.
I write in an older style of prose, older words and descriptions, often moving slowly instead of the modern fast paced simpler prose. Does old prose have a chance nowadays? How can I keep it, yet still keep my readers hooked? Can old prose still hold…
You brought up some good thoughts here. Charlotte is the kind of character that would think but not say a sarcastic remark because she naturally doesn’t speak her mind and she’s been taught all her life the proper way to act. Although she does also try to think the best of people and give them the benefit of the doubt, so she tries…[Read more]
A quiet, passive, reserved character needn’t be inert.
While others are off gallivanting about, sassing each other and exchanging their witty repartee, she plays the part of the straight m…[Read more]
Another character question, this one from Kristianne!
I know that most people (myself included) often find energetic, active, and sassy characters (especially girls) more interesting than quiet and reserved characters. One of my main characters is quiet, more passive (although she definitely acts), and proper. How do I make her seem interesting,…

And @princess-foo, you’re right about having a sort of George Washington! I will certainly apply it! Thank you 😊
I question myself posting this and question that too, but here we are. I apologize in advance for this gloomy vent and its lack of conciseness.
I feel brutally depressed. Apathetic. Hopeless to the point of inactivity. And it’s only Tuesday. Sunday I was…[Read more]
Hi. I’m new here and I know you don’t know me at all, but I get what you’re going through. I’ve gone through stuff like that before.
I’m praying for you.
Press into God’s Word, even when it hurts and even when you can’t hear him.
Write it out in a journal.
Don’t listen to the lies in your head. Satan is trying to attack you.
Hello, it’s Michelle! I’m not sure if your interested, and I hope I’m not bothering you. But I had to share this XD *drum roll* I JUST FINISHED MY SHORT STORY!!!! *does happy dance and jumps on the furnicher, then starts to cry because it’s over* I finished it Thursday March 19, which means I finished it on the first day of spring…[Read more]
@phoenix Oh I definitely feel you regarding all the existential dread. I’ve struggled with specifically the same frustration that humanity is a joke because our entire existence is intended to give ourselves up to the same thing all the rest of creation already does, and even with wishing we could just become annihilated after death.
What gives…[Read more]

@devastate-lasting I’m sorry I forgot about checking in last week! Did everything go okay?
Ah, a new week already. Well, do y’all have any goals planned for this week?
— Finish organizing everything before I leave (Speaking of which, guys, I’ll be out of the country these next two weeks so I won’t be on here at all. You guys can…[Read more]
@seekjustice Ooh yay for rain! You guys sure need it right now. Hopefully your far away from the cyclones though. 😬 Glad things went well this week. 🙂
@sageinthemeadow That’s great!
My goals went pretty well. I didn’t write as much as I wanted, but I think I’ll be able to make up for it this week. I did get to read…[Read more]
@filewriter I can relate. 😉
I’m glad your goals are going well! (And am excited to read what’s next in your story. 😉 )
My goals went pretty well, thanks for asking! I was a bit nervous for my concert just because some things came up to make things complicated (such as one of the violinists breaking her wrist). But it went really well! I’m…[Read more]
@morreafirebird Wow those are beautiful! I really need to start painting again…
Well guys what’s the week ahead look like for you?
— Get prepared for concert this weekend
— So practice, practice, practice!
— Write a little bit at least
— Keep up with math
Hi everyone! I’ve come with kind of an update on my mom and another prayer request.
So, I think everything’s been figured out with Mom’s sickness. She has osteoporosis and an autoimmune disease that I can’t remember the name of at the moment. But she’s been really exhausted every day and there’s been a lot of crazy between her and my older…[Read more]
