  • Just posted the finale of my series Plague of the Desert! It ended up being about 13 parts in total!

    It was originally 5 VERY LONG parts, but I decided to cut it down so it could sit a little longer throughout the months (and so I had time to edit my next project lol).

  • #BestDialogue

    I am personally in love with some dialogue from some random people about my character as she's being escorted out of prison. I think it does a good job of characterizing her :D

    “Maga’s out?! There’s hope for us all!”

    “Hope you can still shoot lightning after all those years, bitch!”

    “Did you hear Captain Jackie had to personally arrest her?”

    “I heard she belongs in a damn loony bin. She’ll kill all of us if she hears.”

  • changing my search to "what does rotting meat smell like" instead of "what does a dead body smell like" so I don't get hunted down by the fbi

    seriously writers search histories are probably some of the most cursed things ever

    RavenAkuma So true XD

  • I have been taking a bit of a break from YWS this week since work has been CRAZY. I got a second job to make a bit of extra money!!!
    I would like to get back to posting and reviewing sometime next week :D

    RavenAkuma Woah! Also, I thought the Peoples tab was missing something XD Best of luck to you! :D

  • Writing question of the month!

    What helps you stay focused?

  • #FirstLine
    The Dimension Regulation Unit, by nature, was created to keep dimensions stable, isolated, and clean from corruption.

    Figure I would place this here, I am writing today and gotta stay pumped!

  • I think I will make the first post in regards to #NovelSoundtrack

    I make spotify playlists for all my stories so I can create a "mood" overall. I think a chaotic techno/rock approach is what most of the playlist is, hence the chaotic premise of four people being plunged into a plot to save all dimensions.

    One song that's been standing out to me is "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" by The Smashing Pumpkins. It's themes of people being stressed out or drained until they feel like nothing like animals fit the general feeling of being forced to join this organization. It especially fits my main character, who has been imprisoned before. Perhaps awakening old trauma?

    Erm...link here? https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0MPdh ... b3af0d4289

    RavenAkuma Ah, that is an awesome song that's so nostalgic for me!! T-T And I totally see how it fits a lot of themes in your stories! That's awesome! :D

  • Finally sitting down to do some real writing....Between vacation, work, and more it feels like there's a lot to do. Despite the occasional procrastination, it feels good to put on some tunes and put some pen to paper (or in this case, fingers to keyboard)

  • #BigMisunderstanding

    I would say it has to do with my villain's goal. They have an astute knowledge and control of souls, and they believe true life lies in the soul.

    The organization fighting against them believes them to be an irredeemable monster who is hurting people and things just to hurt them. Overall, who is the real monster when dimensions are at stake?

    Alright, up first we have Mega Chonker 5000 ^^ who got adopted while we were there (not by me sadly T-T). He ran across the whole cafe and jumped onto our table... because we had food XD He stayed there until they took him away lol


    This cute little baby was small and just lay on her blanket the whole time, stretched out in the sun! ^^


    This distinguished gentleman has all pink toe beans and looks just like my cat I used to have!


    This is Mega Fluff 5000 ^^(these are not their actual names, don't worry XD) and they were the biggest cat in the whole cafe... besides Mega Chonker...but Mega Fluff had enough fur for 5 cats. When they finally came down from the shelf, I think the fluff had fluff. So majestic in the sun.

    The cafe was really cute and the cats were sweet. My favorite part was going into the side room where there were two shy cats in there. One of them was incredibly affectionate and was rubbing against our legs the whole time and was so energetic with playing. Then there was this tiny baby with the cutest face I've ever seen, who was very shy but let me stroke his forehead and went to sleep. I would have adopted him if I lived here XD he was just a shy lil baby. Anyways, it was so much fun!!!

  • #FavSideCharacter #NaNoTags

    A side character (from another story I am working on) I have been thinking of lately is Sky AKA Stardust...

    I wrote some stories with her as the main character early in my writing career where she gained powers related to the sun and learned to use them. She was a goody-two-shoes who was obsessed with superheroes. She eventually became a pop idol of some sort.

    In her most recent appearance, she is now a cunning space-faring cult leader with a demonic arm.

    I knew all popstars were evil...

  • #OneSentence - Dawn of D.R.U.

    A shady organization forces a group of misfits to fight for the fate of the multiverse.

  • Hey there noah! :) It's great to see that you're having fun with NaNoTags! I just wanted to drop by and let you know that you don't have to do a favsidecharacter every day of the week. The NaNoTags thread could've caused a bit confusion, but the tags posted in a given week can just be used in that week. So, you don't have to write about the character right away, just post your answer somewhere in the week.

    But it's also totally OK if you want to put different side characters of yours in the spotlight and do it all week. I just wanted to let you know that it's not required. :]

    I also, however, came to pop by and tell you that you definitely have some fascinating side characters! Super speed and cloning 0.0 those are some amazing story elements. Best of luck with your Camp NaNo!:]

    goodolnoah Oh no, I know about the nanotags thing. I just have a decent amount of side characters so I figured it would be fun to share them :D
    Jul 2, 2024

    Roxanne Ah, great! :D (sorry for the lengthy post) But by all means, do share some more! Have a wonderful day, and I look forward to reading more about your side characters!

    Ignore the spam.,.

    Riley Ashi is a triplet sibling who was blessed with super speed. Later in life, she was employed by the Dimension Regulation Unit. One could describe her as a Hermes-like figure, speeding through dimensions to deliver messages and justice.

    Due to her speed, her aging has slowed, and she's mentally about 92.

    LadyMysterio Mentally, I am also 92
