  • Steward of the Pen joined the group Fantasy Writers 9 months ago

    • 🙂 Hey Steward! Long time no see! How’s your writing coming along?

      • Hey, good to see you! My writing is going pretty well. I’m slowly making my way through my first draft. It’s at about 27k now. How’s yours going?

      • 🙂 Mine’s stuck… unfortunately. I’m doing some more writing studying using Weiland’s boxed sets and am trying to get into it more.

      • I’d be happy to brainstorm with you if you want to post somewhere about how you’re stuck. 🙂

    • STEWARD
      For some reason I haven’t run into for a while. How’s it going?!?

      • EVELYN
        Hey! How are you?
        Everything’s going pretty well. School is crazy, but I’ve still had a little time for writing in between all the essays and annotations and balancing chemical equations. 😛

      • Good good. Life’s life and so I’m living it best I can. (:
        I haven’t really gotten any time for writing lately but oh well. This thing called school only last for a few years, eh? And then it’s clear skies from there! 😉
        (I also just realized I left out of word above. *into you. 😛 )
        Basically I’ve been doing debate and school none stop January, had a couple day break this week from debate, (a break that ends tomorrow) and so I tried to write but all my gears were rusty. *looks down at fingers sadly*
        I’m always adding notes to my brainstorming documents tho because if I don’t I forget the idea. During driver’s ed. During school. During choir. 😛
        So I haven’t written anything beyond that since NaNoWriMo…
        How is chemistry? I’m not really looking forward to that next year. Not my most favoritest science in the world. 😆 Too much math. 😉
        But then I’ve never done it soooo
        Who am I to say that?

      • Aye, this season shall be over eventually. 😉
        Wow, sounds like debate is pretty time-consuming.
        Haha, yep, I’m scribbling random notes all the time too. They’re all spread throughout Google docs, various word processors, Trello, and notebooks (some of which aren’t even for writing). I should probably organize all that sometime. 😛
        Chemistry ain’t bad. I have to admit it’s…very challenging, though. The math itself isn’t hard, just the concepts. All the rules and exceptions are hard to keep track of, and ions are just downright confusing. xD But the labs are still fun. Have you ever used an alcohol stove? They’re so small and cute…

      • Yeah, it really can be. 😛
        Hahaha, yes, the other day I was finding old notes in all my school books and reading through them. Quite entertaining things. 😉
        An alcohol stove? No! Never even heard of it. 😆

      • Yep, they’re quite entertaining. 😛
        Alcohol stoves are so cool! It’s a little round, glass jar that’s filled with alcohol and has a short wick. There’s a little stand with a wire mesh top that goes over it. When you light the wick, it acts like a little stove. You can boil small beakers of liquid in a few minutes.

      • Oh that’s neat! It does sound cute. Maybe I’ll go crash the chemistry class at my co-op tomorrow to see if they have one. 😀
