    Hi Shira! I’m Rose, pleased to meet you!

    That looks really cool! We’re planning to (probably) have a NaNo thread here on SE, but I’ll look into yours too, it looks fun!

    So, do you just post about your WIP there? (I’m always up for ranting about my characters 🙂 ) Or is it to track your word count during NaNo?

    Thanks, Noah! Who knows, perhaps overthinking has use this time 🙂

    I was still petting Azar during Acyn and Lorcan’s conversation. Acyn was being his usual, mildly irritating, self.

    Quin seemed embarrassed, and I made a point of smiling at him again. I liked him already.

    “No animosity? I was starting to enjoy the assassin and the princess’ squabbling. I suppose I’ll have to find another way to amuse…[Read more]

    @emily-waldorf

    He sounds really cool! If you’ll tell me what he won’t, how did he get the scars? He sounds a bit more flamboyant than Quin, but just as reluctant to talk about where his injuries came from, and sensitive about people being able to see the marks of them. Will you bring him into the Castle? What’s his name?

    LOL, I wish I could XD (M…[Read more]

    @noah-cochran

    I’m not sure what “gilded blood” is, but I love it as a name for a book. xD (Does it mean privileged blood?)

    Thank you! I’m really proud of it 🙂

    On one hand… yes, but also no XD

    Initially, I just liked the sound of it, then I reverse-engineered the book to make it fit the title XD

    So, the in-story explanation is that the Golde…[Read more]

    Omigosh this is going to be hysterical

    LOL, that was the best!

    Also, with every passing post I hear his accent clearer XD

    Perhaps I had been talking a little too fast. That happened sometimes. I shut up abruptly.

    “Um, hi…hey. I’m Quin. Quin Miller. What’s—what are your names?” He said,

    He noticed Acyn looking at his missing leg and blushed. Of course, I had noticed but I wasn’t about to show it. If Acyn was going to be rude I’d–

    @scoke

    Hi Scott, I’m Rose! Pleased to meet you!

    TTRPG is a fascinating format! I would say the majority of people here write novel format, but some people are working on poetry, short stories, scripts for comics, storylines for video games, and so on and so forth. There’s a lot of different stuff, I love it 🙂

    I’ve never played TTRPG, but I…[Read more]

  • @noah-cochran

    Yes, it is overused, but to be clear, I think it is incorrect and bad for the word magic to be used to describe fantastical abilities or elements. It’s not about it being confused with real magic, it’s about us not using the word magic at all. Magic is magic, sorcery is sorcery.  Thoughts?

    I can see that, though I think the actu…[Read more]

    *high-fives fellow Dickens fan back* Yes, audiobooks are amazingly helpful for classic novels… especially when they were paid by the word…

    LOL, it really seems like that sometimes XD Dickens knows many words but concise is not one of them. XD

    That’s a really cool premise! Best of success with it!

    Glad it helped! I really like her videos, she explains well and covers some more obscure topics 🙂

    Do you recast the scenes you have chosen to recast first? Or do you go through the book chapter by chapter and recast the scenes you planned to as they come up. Just curious.

    Mmh, good question. Personally, I’ve always marked the…[Read more]

  • @olivia

    Agreed!!! I’ve always loved how unique the book and chapter titles are and have even thought about making my titles similar, since I love them so much. xD I might, but who knows…

    I love it too! I’ve thought about adding titles to my chapters, but I’ve never actually tried it. *Lightbulb moment* I could maybe do that with this next pro…[Read more]

  • @olivia

    It does, though if we’re being truly fair, we wouldn’t have stories to write if it wasn’t for life.   But ya, I get what you mean. It’s okay though, because I’m a little worn out right now and need a bit of a break anyway, so needing to pause writing right now is actually good for me.

    Taking breaks is essential, and I hope you have a grea…[Read more]

  • @noah-cochran

    Hey Noah, I just came across a video that explains a part of my first draft revision process really well. As I was watching this it was like “Yes! That’s it! That’s what I’m doing!” which was quite amusing XD

    Aww, yes!! It’s time to write Acyn again!! XD

    Acyn

    My friends were all horribly stupid. I was thoroughly convinced of this fact as I had just literally grabbed Sahar by the collar to keep her from storming, full speed, into a dark and foreboding tunnel. Typical.

    Liorah and Ferran had already gone inside, so there was nothing I could do about…[Read more]

    @irishcelticredflowercrown

    Oh my goodness, how have I never thought of that before? Now I know why I imagine British accents when I read about villains XD

    Same!! I feel like it’s a universal human experience XD

    What’s your favourite accent ever? Mine is Donegal – its just so dreamy, I hope I marry a Donegal man hehe. Lorcan actually has a Don…

    And I’ll get stuff started and take out the characters. Man, I did not expect this to be this hard. Liorah has been here since I started this castle, almost a year ago! *Sad sigh* At least I can still torment her in canon! *Happy sigh*

    @emily-waldorf

    I’m interested in Sahar’s introduction as “a literal ray of sunshine.” that sounds like a cool character, right there!

    Oohh, she is!!! She’s my sweetest baby and I love her so much! She’s a side character and she needs some more depth, but I love her personality concept! (Basically glitter and knives XD)

    But I actually designed…[Read more]

    thanks!  Maybe some day you will play it

    Totally! I don’t play video games often, but every year around exams I get a craving for playing them XD (I don’t know why either, but it happens every single year XD)

    Honestly, I truly believe that the setting all came about through God.  For a while, I was trying to write this cringy edgy LoTR k…

    @joy-caroline

    Oh, that’s interesting! Most Adventists actually do not eat meat or dairy because Ellen G. White (our founder and prophetess) warned against it. I rank among the Adventists who take a more relaxed view – I do eat meat, but not very often, and keep the dairy in moderation. I believe Sister White was speaking of her specific times, as…
