    Week 4

    It's time to get down to some #GreenRoomQueries ! To participate, have a look at works currently in the Green Room. Then, choose a work that interests you and go to the author's wall. Ask them a question or two about the work and add the hashtag #GreenRoomQueries . For example, you could ask what inspired the piece of writing, what are their plans for it, who is their favourite character to write, etc.

    Have fun!

    Week 3

    It's time for some Mad Libs Poetry! To participate, choose any poem—it can be one you've written or one by another poet! Then, replace some of the words with the type of speech they are (noun, verb, verb ending in -ing, adverb, adjective, etc.), and then post it on your wall in a spoiler with the parts of speech above it! For an example, see this poem!

    Once you've got your poem parts arranged, post it on your wall with the hashtag #MadLibsPoetry. Then go around the People tab and fill in others' templates with the words you come up with!

  • #funfact (honestly more of a fun historical anecdote) that I learned in my forensic science class recently: there was this Dutch art forger named Han van Meegeren who forged a lot of Vermeer works during the 40s, and then sold them claiming they were from Vermeer’s early period. One of them he sold to the Nazis, which after the war, didn’t go over too well with the Dutch government, so he was tried for Nazi collaboration, on the basis that he’d sold a piece of Dutch pride and history to the enemy— which could be punishable by death. So during his trial, rather than arguing the validity of his forgeries, he was actually forced to come clean and prove that he’d forged the works. In the end, he was found guilty of fraud and sentenced to a just a year in jail— and became somewhat of a national hero too, on account of his tricking the Nazis. #socialmonth

    4revgreen wow, this is such an interesting fact! I love quaint little historic facts like these

    1. The only time I've ever fainted was at a science museum.
    2. A superhero movie filmed in my area when I was younger and I got to be an extra in one scene.
    3. I have a chipped tooth and to this day I have no idea how it happened.

    Guess away!

    Oh okay this is a hard guess but I'm going to go with 2

    Heya Plume!

    Truth: What is your favourite Neil Gaiman story?

    Dare: Write a 7-word story and post it to your wall :0

    Plume Favorite Neil Gaiman story... that is hard. I would say Good Omens, but that's technically jointly written by him and Terry Pratchett. My favorite proper Gaiman story is probably a tie between Coraline (a childhood classic) and Neverwhere, which I hadn't read until recently but highly recommend for a dark fantasy hit!
    Feb 1, 2023

    Liminality Ooh neat! I love Coraline too, among his novels. Oh I've never read Neverwhere either - might give it a try if I see it in a library sometime. :D Have you read any of his short stories? I think my fave of those would probably be 'Sunbird'.

    troof: what's your favorite thing you've ever written?


    dare: share your oldest yws post

    Plume gonna have to go with this script because 1) I was proud of it when I wrote it and 2) I wrote it during the best two weeks of my life when I was at a writing camp, so the memories attached to it are also very nice ^-^

    Truth: tell me the worst review story you have and why it's bad
    Dare: take a poem you have made you dislike and post it on your wall(if you have one)

    Plume Worst review story... well, back when I had a long streak on TT, there would be sometimes when I'd be going to bed and forget if I'd done a review that day, so I'd have to get out of bed all tired to check my computer, and it either resulted in me 1) being grumpy for having to get out of bed if I found out I'd already written a review or 2) having to write a review late at night, keeping me up even later, so two not very good options.
    Feb 1, 2023

    Quillfeather Oooooof I get that type of feeling
    I'm sure they were great reviews anyway
