My dear Emily-of-New-Moon,
How are you? I’ve missed you so! I hope you’re doing well!
By the way, your profile pic is beautiful!!!
Yours very truly,
Anne or Cordelia Shirley
You’re very welcome! 🙂 Oh my word, yes, yes, yes! I love poetic prose so so much. I love sentences that sound so beautiful or so heartfelt that you simply must read them again and quote them all the time!
Yes, actually, I’m launching my new blog this Saturday. So far, they’re mostly nonfiction articles, but I’m hoping to maybe get s…[Read more]
I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to answer! Thank you so much for taking the time to read it!!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I’m just curious, how would you recommend that I tweak the plot (because I think the plot is my weakest point) so it’s a lot more cohesive? (I’d love your opinion on it too Selah!)
Hey! I am so sorry, I meant to respond a long time ago! Thank you so much for tagging me! Gee, I used to write not-so-very-good poetry, and haven’t actively tried in a long time. (They say my prose, sounds very poetic, though…? Lol! :D) I love reading poetry, however, when I get the time for it. Unfortunately, I haven’t done…[Read more]
No worries! You’re fine! 🙂 I completely understand that life can get really busy. Or you simply forget (both of which have happened to me). 🙂

My Dearest Emily,
I am so sorry, and please forgive me! I’m afraid I’ve done the same! 🙁 So please don’t worry, because I completely understand, dear! I wanted to write you a nice, long reply “Montegomery style”…but unfortunately idealists don’t always get things done. LOL (Please don’t think I find you obnoxious in the least! I love…[Read more]

Dear Emily! I’ve missed you so!!!! Lovely to have you back! <3
I’d love to read your story! However, I doubt I’ll be able to put in as many comments as I would like to just now because of time constraints. So it might take me some time…not because I don’t want to work on it though! 😀
Anne (or Cordelia) Shirley 😉
Thank you so much for taking the time to reply! I so appreciate the advice! (I especially loved the bit about writing on something you’re “passionate and knowledgeable about!”) To be honest, I didn’t know whether anyone would answer this post, but I’m so thankful you did! I will be sure to tag you for any future questions!
P.S. Yes, I…[Read more]
I was planning on writing an article for SE but am really struggling to get it all in a nice, organized outline. Does anyone have any tips for writing articles for Story Embers?
Hey Jenna! I hope you don’t mind my adding on to this thread so long after its original posting!
Here is a short story I’ve written that I’d love to have your thoughts on…if you have time, of course!
By the way, your blog is absolutely lovely! 🙂
Hello! Welcome to Story Embers! It’s a pleasure to meet you!
I love many of your favorite authors as well! But I was so surprised – and glad – to find you mentioned Gene Stratton-Porter! I’m currently reading the Girl of the Limberlost.
Absolutely love that quote, by the way!
Salutations! 😉 I am so glad you like Greek/Roman times! I do too! George MacDonald’s The Golden Key is one of my absolute favorite books! Have you read Till We Have Faces by C. S. Lewis? It’s a retelling of the Cupid and Psyche myth.
Welcome Abigail! I’ve been so surprised by how many historical…[Read more]
Thank you so much for sharing, Mariposa! This is so sweet! I absolutely loved it! There is something so tender and heartfelt and delightfully, imaginatively child-like in your writing! Reading this just made me want to be little girl curled up reading Anne of Green Gables and Little Women again! God bless!
P.S. Please send my love to Aberdeen!
Forgive me for the late reply, I’ve been fairly busy this week!
Thank you so much for taking the time! Your comments were so helpful and encouraged me so much. I hope you enjoyed reading it! 🙂
Please count on me for any Beta reading projects!
Thank you so much for the kind comments! I really appreciate…[Read more]
I need Beta Readers for my latest short story. I would appreciate any comments and critique (from story structure and character development to dialogue to grammar!) so much! Please invite others if you can!…[Read more]
Has anyone read The Secrets of Story by Matt Bird? (https://www.amazon.com/Secrets-Story-Innovative-Perfecting-Captivating/dp/1440348235/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=) If so, would you recommend it?
