  • April is a month full of fun activities! Which ones will you be participating in? =D
    (a) NaPo all the way!! (bonus: share one type of poem you'd like to try, or your general theme)
    (b) April Madness
    (c) commenting on other people's NaPo threads
    (d) PlanMo, PlanMo! (technically this is in March, but shh)
    (e) Camp NaNo!! (bonus: share a teaser of the story you're planning to work on)
    (f) review day~ (at the end of the month)
    (g) anything else that I forgot?

    Liminality Probably all of the above except for b) (just because I can't really keep track of all the rounds haha). NaPo: my general theme is the word 'quest'. Camp NaNo: am currently torn between trying to finish my draft of Miscreants or working on Through the Amber Forest . . . leaning towards Miscreants though! A fun question for a fun month.

    Extra special recognition to @Liminality, @Spearmint, and @WeepingWisteria, who achieved at least a one week streak at some point in February: they wrote for at least 7 days in a row!

    Extra special recognition also to @Dossereana, @KateHardy, @Mageheart, @Shady, and @winterwolf0100, who wrote every single day for the entire month. Wow!

    Quillfeather I feel like I am obligated to say (e)
    But truthfully it would probably be just whatever is near me (like I took my math notes in crayon the other day because it was the only thing I could find)

  • it's not Friday, but... what school of magic would you all be in/want to be in? ;D


    Spearmint personally, i think illusion and conjuration are cool c:

    Liminality Abjuration - feels like the least ethically complex, just at a glance. Unless you're super into non-intervention with "fate", it seems nice to be able to just do magic and protect dogs, endangered wildlife, people, etc. . . Though illusion and conjuration make for great storytelling!
