The Dreaded Blank Screen

Posted by Gabriella Hunter in Writing, Writing and a bit more Writing!, 12 July 2014 - - - - - - · 34 views

Hello, everyone! This is Gabbie again, making another blog after what seems like a century ago. A lot of you have known me for a while  (Or have noticed me lurking here and there like a ghost) but I've noticed a lot of new faces on the forums lately so its nice to meet all you new people and for those of you that know me, I've missed you a lot! :shy:...

MBTI- How does your brain work?

Posted by red_headed_juliet in Blah-blah-blog, 12 July 2014 - - - - - - · 140 views

Hello!  :bye:
 
I am really just a ridiculously curious person, and I've noticed that you can deduce a lot from a person using the Meyers Brings Type Indicator tests, as long as you get a good test, that is. My question is... What house are you in, and what is your MBTI? 
 
For example, I'm a Ravenclaw and INFJ  (Introverted, iNtu...

That perfect story

Posted by Lostmyheart in Cookie Jar, 11 July 2014 - - - - - - · 76 views

You have been working on this plot for quite a while, you've almost perfected it - you know exactly what's going to happen during that chapter, how every scene is going to be played and what things are going to affect the main characters decisions and personality.
 
All these great details, you've got it all figured out - how the mood of the story s...

challenge, winners

Hello!
 
Seriously, I don't even have an excuse as to why I'm so late announcing the winner of this challenge. I didn't mean to, I just sort of forgot and kept putting it off, even though I decided on the placings straight away. So, sorry to the three of you that entered that I left reviews for, telling you the results would be up that day. I lied. I...

"What's a G-I-F?" Being a Twenty-Something in the HP Fandom

Posted by my_voice_rising in pink teacup., 03 July 2014 - - - - - - · 229 views

Hey, it's been a while.
 
Let me begin by saying I am not at all trying to mock people for being of a younger generation of fans.   Nor am I trying to open a discussion containing age-specific information.  Let's keep it TOS-friendly, yes?

This week I attended a mandatory wine tasting for work (oh nooo free wine.)  A...

Constant Vigilance!

Posted by Selene in Tea with Selene, 02 July 2014 - - - - - - · 160 views

Okay, not really CONSTANT VIGILANCE!! but I did get your heart pumping. :happy:  As I write this, July 1 is nearly over.  A typically normal day, the start of the best month for birthdays (if I do say so myself), 122 days until NaNoWriMo begins...just a usual day.
 
Unless, you are this HPFFer.  July 1 marks my HPFF anniversary and thi...

-You've replaced the 'useful' bookmarks on your browser with a myriad of HPFF ones (Bus timetables? Pfft. I'm not leaving the house)

Writing a Blind Character

Posted by AlPotterFan in In A Nutshell, 29 June 2014 - - - - - - · 149 views

So for one of my fanfictions in another fandom, I'm writing this story in which the girl goes indefinitely blind due to an accident while at school. It's the first time that I've written about a character that's disabled and I was a little bit wary of the idea of first but decided to do it anyway because what the heck.
 
Now, I am someone that suffer...

It's all in your Perspective

point of view, writers tips

Readers and writers alike:
 
What is your preferred Point of View (henceforth, POV) in stories you read or write?  As a writer, I'm struggling with choosing the best one to accurately portray my characters thoughts and their interactions with the people around them.  I feel like first person POV comes the most naturally, as that is what we...

The Lost Wolf, Original Cover

Posted by maryhead in maryhead's Blog, 28 June 2014 - - - - - - · 89 views

The Lost Wolf, Original Cover So.... This is actually the first drawing ever I made for my story. In fact, this was not created using digital art, but in a more "classical" way: pencil, pen and brush. Well, this may also be the technique I'll use in the next months, since I'll be away from home for a couple of weeks ;)

So I recently hosted a challenge. It was really fun to do, but I won't bore you -- here are the results!
 
Third place goes to All Grown Up by LightLeviosa5443 (15+)! 
This one shot goes over what it's like for Tonks to watch Teddy grow up without her. Even though it's very short, it flows nicely and rings true to the characters. It's quick rea...

An Analysis of Reads

Posted by toomanycurls in toomanycurls - thoughts, theories, and conjecture, 21 June 2014 - - - - - - · 511 views

While we're waiting for Lockhart to judge the entries for Event 2 - I decided to do a fun analysis on read counts and reader attrition. I've seen quite a few people post about their read count looking whacky because it goes up and then down from chapter-to-chapter in a multi-chapter story. To start off with: here's a graph of the spread of reads throughou...

The Struggle of Finding Your House

Posted by marauderslover15 in marauderslover15, 19 June 2014 - - - - - - · 83 views

Sometimes getting sorted into houses is easy and not so complicated. Fics tends to reflect that. BUT I think we can all agree through personal experiences, its not so easy. 
 
When I first came into the HP world, I was ALL over the place with the houses. I took tons of quizzes and never saw myself as Gryffindor (which apparently I am​ acco...

The Houses I wish I could be in.

The House Cup is upon us! My first House Cup! I've been looking forward to it for ages, and I'm very excited to work with all my fellow 'Claws and enjoy every minute of it. I love being a 'Claw! I love being inquisitive and open-minded and I love learning for the sake of learning, and collaborating with other similar minds.

Why I love the House Cup

Posted by HeyMrsPotter in HeyMrsPotter's Blog, 14 June 2014 - - - - - - · 298 views

With cryptic updates from the staff, random appearances from Professor Quirrell and Filch, and already one task under our belts, it's safe to say I'm feeling pretty excited about this year's House Cup already...which got me thinking about last year.
 
2013 was my first House Cup on the forums, and what a brilliant year it was to join, and be a part o...

The Fault in Our Stars - SPOILERS

Posted by DoctorUnderwood in Two Hummingbirds Who Had Never Met, 13 June 2014 - - - - - - · 296 views

Ok, so I had no intention of starting a blog.

So then I decided to go see "The Fault in Our Stars" (I just got home from the theater 10 mins ago). And I need another platform to discuss this fantastic movie.

First off, I need to say that TFIOS is my least favorite of John Green's books. To put it frankly, I think it's overrated. I acknowledge that it'...

House Cup, Teamwork

Good Morning Everyone!
Even if it is not morning reading this Good Morning anyways. My philosophy is, is that mornings are all about beginnings and if I think it is morning all the time then it is always the ripe time for something new. Or I’m just weird. Haha.
 
With the House Cup upon us I really want to wish everyone good luck and to have fu...
