I’m Bethany and I will also get on you for not using proper punctuation and grammar! And I love parentheses too. What are your thoughts on the Oxford comma?
I have only seen two Marvel movies, but frankly, I’m not that impressed so far. What did you think of that Spiderman movie? I’ve heard it was good.
What kind of…[Read more]
I think I’ll have to step away from this for the time being. I’m busy with senior year (I cannot wait to be DONE) and I want to devote more time to other writing projects. Thanks for inviting Torsten into the castle, but you all can feel free to move onto the next part of the story without him. 🙂

Well I don’t have the time nor the inclination to respond to y’all’s comments (look at me using y’all–I hope I did it correctly) but I agree with ’em.
Unfortunately haven’t done as much reading recently as I’d like, and the reading I have done has been mediocre, but here goes.

Only practice can make you a better writer for sure. Definitely don’t take cuts out of your writing time for needless reading time.
However, I enjoy reading and it honestly inspires me. When I read a well-written book, it makes me want to write. Yeah, I’m an immature writer; maybe that inspiration ceases to affect you when you’re a pro. I don’t…[Read more]
Yes, I’m not terribly fond of the initial ones either. Every YA fantasy book these days is named “The BLANK of BLANK and BLANK” with the same words being used over and over again. They all sound the same and confuse me. And they also don’t tend to make a lot of sense.
I like your second option. What about Shadowed Shards for…[Read more]
Sorry if they’re blurry–I had to use my computer’s webcam
Have you seen pictutes of the the giant hummingbird? They’re so big they almost look like a swallow! They’re very dull and brown, though. I find it funny how aggressive they are because they’re so tiny! It seems like it’s usually the little birds that are aggressive, but I suppose that isn’t the case with geese lol
I have! Yeah, tho…[Read more]
I’ve heard great horned owls and heard and seen barn owls here. I think those are my favorite owl species, but burrowing owls and snowy owls are super adorable too! If you’ve never heard a barn owl, look up its call. It’s very creepy. They’re called ghost owls for good reason.
I think I like the Costa’s hummingbird best, but the ones…[Read more]
I also like birdwatching, art, reading, LoTR, and worldbuilding when I should be writing lol. What is your favorite kind of bird? Mine are hummingbirds and owls.
I’d love any nonfic book recommendations! I started reading the Silmarillion, but never finished it. However, I did enjoy what I read; I just need to keep better track of…[Read more]
Rough draft of a poem I just wrote today. Probably the rawest thing I’ve written, which isn’t saying much lol.

I cannot say what I think
And I cannot think of what to say.
When my better judgment restricts
What my heart begs to convey–
I’ll pretend I didn’t hear you.
But I wish that I could tell you
And hear what you would…
I like it! There are a couple lines though that throw off the meter though. But otherwise, it’s great!
Thanks! I might have to check out Trello when it comes time to making scene cards.
Yes, I really love how easy to use Google Drive is–it’s a lot cleaner to me than Office. And it works better on saving my stuff than OneDrive ever does. I love using bulleted lists when brainstorming–it makes everything a lot…[Read more]
I got Scrivener for my birthday and I really love it! It helps keep everything organized without having to open dozens of folders for it.
Also, Scrivener is awesome for organizing notes and other things. I use it once in a while and would recommend!
At first I didn’t think Scrivener would be useful for me, but the…[Read more]
I’m talking WIPs, outlines, notes, drafts, whatever. How do your organize it all? What tools do you use? Digital or paper?
(yes I started this topic because my writings are a mess and scattered all over and I need to clean and re-organize my Google Drive and OneNote)
tagging some…[Read more]
Hi there! Thanks for letting me know! I did consider Rick Riordan Presents, but I think I’ll be going to for a Christian publisher if I’m going down the traditional route. There’s a publisher called Enclave Publishing who do Christian fantasy and sci fi.
We definitely need good Christian fantasy and Enclave looks like a rea…[Read more]
