I’m curious, you mentioned before that you do believe in heaven, but not in immortality after the resurrection. So do you believe everyone except the saints will become mortal again after being resurrected? So everyone will die twice, but the second death is eternal? Sorry if I’m misunderstanding, I’ve never heard about this…
Yesss!!!!! I was literally so excited the day I realized this:
See, I have this mountain that people can climb up but don’t ever live on. It’s to wild and rugged, etc., etc. But at the end of the Epochs, when the Creator returns to His people, He’s going to live on top of the mountain and people will live with Him.
Then I…[Read more]
SAME HERE!!!! I was just writing a fantasy novel and then one day I was reviewing it and realized how flipping symbolic was and I may have jumped around and squealed for like an hour after that…
YO I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
I’m super appreciative of symbolic fantasy, and that is just beautiful. I love it!!!!!
Hello! No, I don’t believe we have. It’s a pleasure to meet you! 🙂
Awww, thanks for asking. 🙂 I’ve been writing more officially since about five or six years ago.
I’m currently working on a novella set in 1930’s Stalinist Russia. Basically, it’s about a U.S.S.R. celebrity actress on a mission to expose the atrocities of Stalin’s…[Read more]
Wow, that is crazy thought out…and I love it. xD It sounds like that will make the depth and nuances of your book all the better, keep me updated on your progress till completion. 🙂
So if I understand your point correctly, you’re saying that you agree that magic and supernatural things are sin, but it is fine to right if portrayed carefully as thing a person does in the book that is wrong, like any other sin such as murder, theft, lust, lying, etc…Is that correct?
If that is what you’re saying, that is a valid…[Read more]
I’m not sure what “gilded blood” is, but I love it as a name for a book. xD
I just remembered nobody ever told Lorcan that Liorah was royalty XD That’s going to be quite a shock XD
Omigosh this is going to be hysterical🤣
Acyn crossed his arms, his gaze turning cool as he regarded Lorcan. “When it comes to that, I just might worry because as it just happens, they’re my friends, even if they…[Read more]
I think we’ll have to agree to disagree on this point. I don’t believe it’s anti-biblical to portray a fact of the world, be it physical or spiritual, so long as it’s done with biblical truth in mind and with care not to mislead readers.
There is a huge difference between portraying a fact (showing that it exists) and having a protago…[Read more]
It certainly is, and thank you. 🙂
Well good for you for stepping out and trying. Sometimes that’s not always easy, but while it doesn’t always turn out well, when it does it’s well worth the uncertainty at first.
Haha, you are welcome for the unintentional idea and I hope it works out! I often just number my titles, which I like as well, but titles are fun sometimes.
#ForeshadowingIsTheBest 😛 🙂
*high-fives fellow Dickens fan back* Yes, audiobooks are amazingly helpful for classic novels… especially when they were paid by the word…
You’re welcome! I’m so glad it helped!
My draft is about a woman (named Naeva) who became/married a vampire. her husband (named Falworth for now) is cruel (and my first villain with a…[Read more]
It’s the celebration mentioned in Esther 9:17-19 and 9:27. It celebrates the day that the Jews were not massacred. (Odd how often that happens, it’s the exact reason behind Chanuka too XD)
It usually includes reading the book of Esther, giving charity, giving gifts, and celebrating in general.
We personally don’t celebra…
Thanks for the tip Rose! That was a great video. I had been planning something similar to this, and I already have a mental list in my head that I want to recast, so I think were on similar tracks. 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…[Read more]
Hey there, it’s Lily. So, I’m a children’s/MG writer, and I love writing for that particular audience because I grew up reading a lot of MG stories.
Anyway, I realized there are a lot of people on here that write YA. So I’m curious. Why do you write YA stories? Was it a particular book or author that inspired you? Or do you strive to wri…[Read more]
I actually have a fantasy rough draft set in a (I guess) Victorian-esque era where I did first-person retrospective. I found it great fun, until I couldn’t figure out how the darn thing would end. (but I haven’t given up on it!)
I recommend reading Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson (which employs a First-person…[Read more]
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.
You’re welcome! 🙂 It’s always nice to…[Read more]
No problem! I like answering when I can. 🙂
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…
Yup, foreshadowing adds a lot to a story that you just can’t get any other way. *sighs contentedly,…[Read more]
Aww I’m going to miss Liorah and Ferran
Lorcan be like: Thank goodness. Those two are now gone. I can live in peace.
*subsequently leave the room to cry loudly into a cushion* My life has no meaning without those two idiots making my life a misery! Noooo!
Lorcan has dark hair and is wearing a steampunk coat and a face mask…
