  • That moment when you come up with something brilliant for your novel. . . . Then realize the next morning that it's awful. :/

  • Hey! :D

    Just wondering - are you still in the process of writing the Shapeshifter's Academy and The Powerful Gifts...?

    (Hope I'm not prying or anything. ;) :D )

    BookWolf No, I think I've moved on completely from those ones. ;) Sorry.

    Virtually all of my free time now is dedicated to the novel that I've written. I'm still very much in love with it, whereas I'm rather detached from Shapeshifter's Academy and The Powerful Gifts. I'll probably be working on it for the whole rest of the year with how slow I write, probably longer. :D Plus, it has a lot more work that needs to be done to it. Hopefully I'll be able to publish it by the time I'm sixteen, though. :D

    Feb 4, 2016

    Snazzy No - that's totally fine. I've pretty much moved on from several novel ideas as well - (The Photo, Assignment 8, etc.).


    (I forgot you already wrote a novel)



    That is awesome. :D (Good luck with the revising and publishing process!! :D )

  • So, I got writer's block SUPER hard the other day and was just getting frustrated with every word I tried to type. So I decided to take some advice that I'd read from some website and just write a really long sentence about whatever popped into my head at that very instant. It actually helped. :P Here's what I wrote, 100% unedited:

    And bleh bleh my cat something is stupcid and because dogs is qaurrel and fish do not follow it for then because I feel said and the bat cant fight when the sheep is away doing junk and whatever so I must dat home, but cant really cause life and my point is that when taking whale for a walk, then you must attach the leash to the ttree but always remember to fart.

    .... Is there something wrong with me? :/

    EverStorm That's what I do to fight writers block haha. It's usually not as helpful as I'd like, but I'm glad it worked for you!

    Snazzy It's better than just slamming your hands onto the keyboard repeatedly. ;)

    When do we get the next chapter of Withdrawal? When?
    It's so awesome... I want it...


    P.S. This isn't to pressurize you or something, just to tell you how awesome your stories are.

    BookWolf Haha, I love that image. :D

    Unfortunately, Rishik, I don't plan on publishing the next chapters. Truthfully, this was something I wrote on the fly and I haven't even considered making a second chapter. I do hope to return to this world in the distant future, though, possibly turning it into a novel. I like the characters and the plot, but as of right now, it's on hold. Sorry. <3

    Jan 23, 2016

    TheLittlePrince *sobs* That's fine... Keep writing, you're awesome.

  • Even though I've been writing for over four years, there is still one still that I REALLY struggle with: Names. :/ It has to be perfect, even on a character that isn't very important. Could I get some help please? I'm planning on starting a new book and I need some advice on names. Tell me which ones are your favorite from the ones listed below. (I write fantasy, by the way.)

    Female: Akmir, Agrona, Almira, Aewa, Alynthi, Alodira, Ariadne, Arianwen, Binya, Byloon, Bronzwyn, Bellona, Cynlime, Cethin, Daedri, Dynera, Emerae, Elowen, Eirwen, Faleira, Fayeth, Glykera, Gwendolen, Hroneza, Ise, Isadora, Jessaline, Kaeabyn, Kynborow, Liarae, Lithia, Mirabella, Ragna, Sezza, Salphira, Sarika, Sylvana, Tindra, Yisik, Yorel, Zabra, Zebony.

    Male: Aldor, Agon, Arath, Arkvyn, Augeon, Amadeus, Adalard, Braz, Brivris, Bleddyn, Ciro, Caradoc, Dague, Draven, Enzo, Edoc, Elwyn, Emrys, Fyron, Faowin, Gethin, Gannon, Hadriel, Malin, Novak, Nedak, Ozarak, Orev, Porthos, Rathan, Raenar, Rowan, Sithril, Syvrik, Syvik, Syr, Shaymir, Shauvris, Throll, Threndore, Terrowin, Takeshi, Ulewyn, Vidro, Vere, Vared, Vopnir, Valdus, Witmar, Zotar, Zalyx, Zaev.

    I'm overly picky about stuff like this. :P Once, I found a name that I really, really loved, but it reminded me too much of a certain word and I just refused to use it it. Also, if I don't like the way it looks on paper, then it's automatically out. Is anyone else like this or is it just me?

    Also, if you have a cool name that you would like to share, feel free to mention it. :)

    Male: Fyron, Raenar, Takeshi and Zaev. :3

    BookWolf Nice, thanks for replying! :D I'm really happy to see Salphira and Raenar listed because I actually came up with those names on my own. ;)

    Felista has started this new Review Club called Talons of Flame..
    I'll just copy and paste what s/he said:
    "Hello fellow reviewers. Who says we only compete on review day? Why not have small competitions every week.
    It will start every Sunday when I send out a notice to all the subscribers and ends the next Saturday when I notify all the subscribers. The winner is the person who wrote the most reviews, but they have to be good quality reviews too. The prize is 300 points and a free review from me. Hope to hear from you soon. :D

    BookWolf Okay thanks! :D I'll be sure to check it out.
    Jan 7, 2016

  • Call for reviews, please. :) I posted a chapter awhile ago but no one's really touched it. It's called Chapter 1: Withdrawal. I would really, really appreciate it if I could get some feedback. <3 I'm hoping my writing has improved since last I published something. :D

    Mageheart I'll review it! I can't right now, but I promise to do it soon!
    Jan 4, 2016

    BookWolf That's really sweet of you! :D <3 Thanks tons in advance. :)
