I hired a blurb artist to make it smashing. He returned this exactly:
In ancient times, the Songkiller sang chaos into the world. Now, he’s returned to finish his dark symphony…
When heroes fall, they pick themselves back up. At least, that’s what the young adventurer named Exton was taught. But when he forges a daring plan to str…[Read more]
BOKURA TIME-FU-RA-I-YA KIMI WO KAKEAMANO KURAIMO TAKE NO MAKURE MOHAGURE KO
*proceeds to sing more misheard and thus badly transcribed lyrics that would make a Japanese person wilt to hear*
@sarah-inkdragon *skids in*
***did someone mention the Kimi no Na Wa soundtrack????***
@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]
@taylorclogston Both I think. I just don’t want anyone to read my story and think “Hey that look like witchcraft!” or “Hey that looks a lot like what I read in …blah blah blah [insert book title here] blah blah.”
Thanks for the offer, but I’m nowhere near that point yet. I have some major character / plot elements I need to demolish and…[Read more]
@seekjustice I’m sure he is. 😉
Thanks. I’ve always wanted to write it all out, but I’m just not really sure how to go about it. I’ve written parts of it, and you’re right it did really help.
Yeah, I really love all the Scandinavian breeds too. Actually I love everything Scandinavian, I always have. But the…[Read more]
Have you ever thought about turning that into a short story? What you just wrote? I enjoyed reading it. I’ve also found writing out things like has brought healing and closure.
I am sorry you had that experience. Horses seem to attract unstable people. Pun intended.
Some day, some magical day I’ll get to tolt… That’s als…[Read more]
Before I tell my long story here’s some background. I’m currently fifteen, but this all started around five years ago when I was ten. Well, actually it started when I was eight and a half, or seven. We’ll go with nine.
So I was nine and had just moved to a new town, about three hours away from the town I’d lived in most of my…[Read more]
Yeah, I’d never expect to win. But, the thought of getting to spend so long in the saddle *sighs* even as my town girl muscles scream at the thought I get so happy just thinking about it. And don’t worry about the jargon, you have no idea how wonderful it is to not be the one throwing those words out.
Your mare is pretty, I like…[Read more]
They were in no way insulting your herd. It was basic commentary on how quarter horse breeders have bred to create an animal that is reaching the limits of being functional. No withers, no place to put a saddle, etc. A generic comment like that reflects where the majority of animals have come from, not their worth nor value. Yo…[Read more]
I’ve read his whole book and watched the videos many times.
Poor breeding? ? You know the Arabian helped make the American Quarter Horse right? And my favorite, the Appaloosa. Quarter horses are all different. Beau is way larger, heftier, and taller than Buddy.
You both relize you just told me my first and only herd I’ve worked with and love are all too lame and not good for anything right?? XD
Its three quarter horses, a super old thoroughbred, and an Arabian paint cross. And they are amazing, thank you very much. xP I’ve mostly just worked with 2 of the quarter ho…[Read more]
Ah, now I understand. I’m not saying this because I don’t care, really I do care, and I don’t want to sound mean. But, I just don’t have time to read the snippets. *drops head on desk* It is so hard to not seem like a monster on the internet.
Yeah, he might enjoy what he does more now. But it really wasn’t fair. He was a good horse…[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]
I don’t want my magic system to seem supernatural because that is what those who use the perversion of the ordained magic do. So my magic system its self isn’t supernatural, but those who abuse it add in a supernatural element.
You asked a lot of great question for creating a magic system, good thing I already have them all…[Read more]
@sarah-inkdragon Wow that’s a really cool idea! That would open up a ton of great themes! Hope you get to write it sometime 🙂
@deeprun We might have technomagic that is astounding in its complexity (I can still barely believe printers exist), but it’s commonplace. The average Jo still can’t throw fire from her hands =P I think if something is beyond human capability, people will dream of it. We all want to be more than we are, right? That’s kind of a core part of the…[Read more]
Before I say anything i just want to say that I totally agree with @r-m-archer ‘s response.
I actually struggled with this for a while because I was afraid any magic would feel supernatural. Especially since my Wip’s genre is Historical Urban Fantasy; at least I think it would be, it’s complicated.
