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! 😀

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?
Dear Emily, please forgive me for not answering! February, March, and April have been crazy months for us!
Gee, hard question! I think I would say these are probably my very favorites: The Book Theif, Hugo, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Life is Beautiful, The Case for Christ, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Hallmark), Wonder, Anne…[Read more]
Thank you so very much for this! I was recently given a beautiful notebook from Mexico and wanted to use it for journaling, though I had no idea how to start (and every day that I was resolutely determined to start, I was kept back by the exact same thing: busy life). Your article encouraged me so much! Thank you!
Thank you, Emily! My, I haven’t written poetry in quite a while…not complete ones… but I should so like to take it up again!
“Sometimes I’m ashamed at how many books I haven’t read.”
If it makes you feel any better, I’ve felt the same way, hahaha! 😉 By the Way, I love Book Theif and Beauty and the Beast so much too! Have you watch…[Read more]
Please, please, please forgive me for the tardy reply! There has been a lot going on this month (good things, though 🙂 )
I was at an old college built in the 1800s. It’s quite lovely! My aunt did a photo shoot for my whole family there. Thank you!
I can see now why everyone loves Mercedes! She is definitely one of my very…[Read more]
Just wanted to say that I read both of your poems on the Blog and loved them! They are so beautiful and sweet and gentle! God bless you and keep on writing!
P.S. I absolutely fell in love with The Count of Monte Cristo!!!
I’m so I’m so glad you’re recovering so quickly! 🙂 (By the way, I found out about your accident when I found a post about it in a Prayer Request thread.)
How far have I read?…I think I’ve read up to chapter twenty five, so far…its most exciting! Though I will admit that it can get dark.
I absolutely LOVE how human everyone feels!…[Read more]
I haven’t read Mara completely yet…I want to read it this year (maybe within the next six months?) though!
I did not know about Moccasin Trail! Thank you! Another read for 2019! 😀
Please forgive me for not answering earlier! These last weeks have been crazy for me!
Thank you! I do love both books! I love the depth of the Characters and how dynamic they are in the Bronze Bow. And Eloise Jarvis McGraw has such a vivid style and love of gritty characters – her books feel SO real, even if certain details…[Read more]
Dear Emily of New Moon,
How are you feeling? I heard you had an accident! I will be praying for you! I so hope you’re feeling better!
I’m now reading the Count of Monte Cristo!!! I’ve barely started, though it’s most engrossing! Any tips or favorite passages or themes?
