    I definitely will, thanks!

    True enough. But I don’t have a lot of writing time now as it is, so I’ll just check it out later.

    Haha, I get it! Sometimes that’s happened to me as well, but it still is funny. 😛

  • @ribbonash

    I checked out your blog and I like it. 🙂 I think I forgot to follow it, but I’ll do it next time I read more. Haha, ya I’ll just start when it works best for me and when I know my parents will be fine with it. Though I don’t think they’ll care.

    Okay, glad I can at least guess what it is. xD Lol. I’ve never really thought about self…[Read more]

    @ribbonash Hey, welcome to the Fantasy Forum!

  • @ribbonash

    Lol, I was confused about a few messages you said you were seeing a theme so I read some previous messages and figured it out! *dies laughing yet again* Man, I’ve died like three times in a row now. You’d think I wouldn’t be able to type if it were really true. 😉 Lol

    Before when we were talking about blurbs, I said I’d get mine for…[Read more]

  • @ribbonash

    True enough.

    Thank you! I’m going to check it out right after I finish replying to this. 🙂 Cool! I’ll definitely tell you if I start one, but I’m not totally sure when that will be. But hopefully sooner in the next year than later. I haven’t asked my parents about it, but I think they’d be fine with it, though I still need to tell…[Read more]

    @ribbonash

    I don’t know about you, but I think I write pretty good during the first draft and if I go, “oof, that’s bad”, it is like a sign of your growth, if that makes sense.

    Yep! Exactly! I have two writing moods: “This is literary genius. This is amazing. ” and the other is. “I don’t even have a basic grasp of English. I have never read an…[Read more]

  • @ribbonash

    Haha, all good! I’m late as well. xD

    Ya, I agree. I like knowing enough to be hooked, but not so there are no secrets in the book when I actually read it.

    Oh, yay! Can you give me the name of your blog or a link or something? I’m excited to check it out! I’m considering starting one of my own in the next year or something, because…[Read more]

    @ribbonash

    Hi there!

    My pleasure! 🙂

    Oh well good LOL. No worries, I’m just glad someone was curious about a character of mine 😉 Hmm, I don’t think I have given her a name because the scene where she makes her appearance is in Leebus’ POV, and she never told him her name (for obvious reasons XD). But she has multiple powers: teleportation,…[Read more]

  • @ribbonash

    I’m pretty good at memorizing things, but it would take me a while with something as long as my synopses, so I’ll just keep it handy in case someone ever asks about it. Which they inevitably will. 😉 I suppose we are a writing community, so…

    Haha, it’s true, people are very different when it comes to reading about a book and how…[Read more]

  • Rose replied to the topic Hello in the forum Introduce Yourself 1 year, 6 months ago

    @ribbonash

     Oof, first drafts are fun, am I right? But the best thing is that you can fix it (why I love all of the drafts after the first draft XD).

    XD! Yeah, I suppose cringing means you’ve improved, right? Hopefully XD. I’m experimenting with how to revise since that is my first novel. It’s been easier than drafting, (so far….) I have a lo…[Read more]

  • @ribbonash

    Yes, you should! It’s a really awesome place. 🙂

    That’s a good idea. I should keep my Synopses and stuff in a place I can access it easily so I don’t have to go searching every time someone asks me about my story. Haha, it would be pretty handy. Ya, I would be impressed as well. 😉

    That’s always nice when you finally write a good…[Read more]

  • Ally Renee replied to the topic Hello in the forum Introduce Yourself 1 year, 6 months ago

    @ribbonash

    You’re welcome once again! Yeah, I may or may not be about to search “post-Cyborg war books” on Google XD I will let you know if I find anything in my research 😛

    Oh good I’m glad it still wasn’t confusing LOL. No worries in wondering about the messenger. She really only has one mission in my entire series XD Yeah, it is quite a…[Read more]

    @ribbonash

    Hi Ribbonash!

    Ah, that’s so cool! There is so much personal stake and motivation hinted at in your story. That’s awesome! I have no idea how my siblings’ relationship with each other be like, other than it will be positive not negative. Me too! There is something so fun about them!

    I actually love Liorah and Gavril’s (Her broth…[Read more]

    @ribbonash

    You’re welcome! 😀

    Oh wow that’s so cool! That seems like an interesting setting and I love it! I don’t know how many post-Cyborg-war books I’ve read before 😉 You’re welcome again!

    Aww, thanks! I’m glad my explaining isn’t too confusing LOL. Well, actually, I guess I made one thing confusing: the woman in the prologue is just a…[Read more]

    @ribbonash

    A fellow fan! Awesome! Oh, my favourites are Cinder, Kai, Iko and Wolf (tomatoes!!!).

    Yay! One of my favorite things about books is the little inside jokes that develop in the fandom, that absolutely nobody else understands. Tomatoes and wire clippers, (Lunar Chronicles) Sugar cubes and white roses, (Hunger Games), Coffee with honey…[Read more]

    Hi Ribbonash! Welcome to Story Embers! 😀

    Ooo your WIP sounds so cool! May I ask what the setting of your story is where cyborgs are fighting in wars? It sounds intriguing 🙂

    My current major WIP, Elemental, goes a little something like this (this is essentially the prologue of my first book):

    “In the world of Belrac, the kingdom…[Read more]

    @ribbonash

    Greetings, Ribbonash! I’m Rose, nice to meet you!

    I love your profile pic! Did you draw it yourself?

    I love the Lunar Chronicles too! Who’s your favorite character? Mine are Wolf (Tomatoes!!!), Cress, and Winter. Though the others are amazing too.

    Your WIP sounds so cool! The idea is amazing, and your MC sounds so interesting!

  • @ribbonash

    Oh, I thought I saw you on there, haha. I suppose I’ve just seen you on Alabama Rose’ blog. I’m not super good with links and such 😛 but you can look up The Young Writers Workshop. It’s super cool, but you have to pay to join, though the resources and community are great.

    Ya, it’s hard to finish what you’ve started, though it depends…[Read more]
