  • After being uprooted, sent hundreds of miles away, and replanted, I am pleased to announce that our strawberry roots are learning how to live again... and learning how to stretch their brand new leaves into the sunshine.

    Helloooo just dropping by to say how awesome you are <33


    Snoink Awww, thank you! You are amazing too. :) I was actually thinking about you the other day when browsing the JM forums... I was the one who first nominated you a million years ago. It's kind of amazing to look back and see everything that's happened since, haha.

  • More #Nanotags !!! *cheers* This time, we're doing #SpoilerAlert !

    #SpoilerAlert - This one's for the jaw-droppers, the twists, the unexpected turns - big or small. Share a plot twist in your novel and be sure to wrap it in a spoiler code.


    LOL. Oh man... since I'm writing the LAST CHAPTER (aka, The Lady's Revenge!!!) I can spoil everything. XD But... I'll just stick in this quote from Book 1, as a little reminder of this prophecy...

    Spoiler! :
    In a strange voice, Uclepidies said, “Because a long time ago, the Oracle prophesied to the first Conqueror that my child would bring upon the death of the Conquerors. And the first Conqueror has never forgotten this.”

  • Time for some #Nanotags !!! In particular, #BestDialogue !

    #BestDialogue
    Coming up with dialogue is an art, whether it's something moving, suspenseful or ridiculously hilarious. Share one (or more) of your favourite dialogues or quotes from your novel.


    ...I am going to steal some stuff from Book 4 and not just the one chapter I intend on finishing, lol.

    Favorite moving dialogue!

    Spoiler! :
    “I understand,” Cyrus murmured, his arms still wrapped around her. “My family was murdered too. In the early days, sometimes I felt like I was living in a nightmare."

    She shuddered, hiccupping. "Was it hard for you to breathe at first?"

    Cyrus nodded, pressing his cheek into her hair. "Sometimes, it's still hard, even though they’ve been gone for years. But it gets easier to breathe. Every day, it gets a little easier to breathe.”


    Um... suspenseful??? Lol, there are a bunch of suspenseful dialogue throughout.

    But! This one!

    Spoiler! :
    "I don't understand! Why is it so hot? Everything is so hot!"

    "Because everything is on fire," Cyrus yelled. "Now, listen! I need you to turn into a White Swan, spread out your wings, and jump."

    "Jump? You want me to fly?" She began to weep. "I can't fly! I haven't flown in years!"

    "I will be your eyes and help guide you down," Cyrus said impatiently. "All you need to do is spread out your wings and jump. Don't be afraid! Only trust me and everything will be fine!"

    She wept harder. "But I can't!"

    "If you don't do this, we'll both be destroyed!" Cyrus snapped. "Again, everything is on fire! The building is about to collapse. You must trust me!"

    "But I can't!"


    Ridiculously hilarious??? Probably this scene were a White Swan complains about being human, lol.

    Spoiler! :
    “See, this is why being human was a terrible idea,” the White Swan said, trying to push the Black Swan away while he preened her hair. “How do you even stand on these pathetic legs? You look like a crane walking on stilts, and cranes are ridiculous. Now a Swan is elegant! You look at a crane and think of stilts, but nothing can rival the elegance of a Swan swimming in a lake or soaring overhead—”

    “I said be quiet!” Cyrus hissed. “I didn’t ask for a discourse about cranes!”

    “Well, it’s true,” she muttered. “Cranes are ridiculous. And humans are even more ridiculous. They make even cranes look elegant, and that takes some doing. Why, a crane is just a grebe with stilts for legs. And a grebe is only a fancy duck. But a Swan—”


    Areastrixleiell So, what I'm gathering is if you want good dialogue just add Cyrus XD
    Jul 18, 2024


    Snoink Basically! XD That's why he's the main character. ;)

    Though, the other characters do have names... I just took them out in these passages so it doesn't spoil everything, lol.
