The Lost Wolf, Chapter 1: A Wolf at the Door

Posted by maryhead in maryhead's Blog, 17 April 2014 - * * * - - · 86 views

The Lost Wolf, Chapter 1: A Wolf at the Door "Cassandra woke up with a gasp, cold sweat soaking the bandages which covered her body. Breathing hard and trying not to convey her distress to her comrades in arms, the seventeen-year-old girl looked around. Fortunately, nobody had noticed anything strange in her sleep."

the eternal struggle

Posted by Ravenclaw333 in Ravenclaw333's Blog, 16 April 2014 - - - - - - · 87 views

I'm talking about readers, of course. Reviews. Favourites. Reads. Those all-important stats that we all judge our own writing by, even when we pretend that we're just writing for ourselves . If you've never looked at the little-to-no review count on your story and thought "What am I doing wrong? Why aren't people reading this?" then you're a liar.

Story Summaries

Posted by leviOsa_not_leviosA in leviOsa_not_leviosA's Blog, 16 April 2014 - - - - - - · 111 views

As I read fanfiction, I tend to go through moods of what I want to read for a period of time.  I started out with mystery, then I went to romance, and now I am stuck on humor.  
 
Has anyone else noticed the different types of summaries that writers write according to the category of the story?  For instance, on the humor page, the mos...

The Sound of Silence

Posted by Slide in Slide Headfirst, 12 April 2014 - - - - - - · 119 views

I can't write when it's silent.
 
I can barely write at home. Too many distractions - boot up this computer game, lean over and grab that book, go downstairs and watch something on TV. Not enough focus, not enough discipline. Too few distractions, too. I open up a word document and unless I've got something tearing at my brain, the words don't come;...

The Story Behind Our Pennames

Posted by Lostmyheart in Cookie Jar, 11 April 2014 - - - - - - · 259 views

I was trying to remember why I chose the penname Lostmyheart, when I began to think of all the different names in the archives (and here). We all have so different names, some more weird than others :p
 
My story is that I joined the archives in my mid-teens, where I listened to a lot of punk-rock bands like Green Day, Mest, Good Charlotte, Rammstei...

A Saga Of Sorts, Part 1 - The Four Types Of Conflict

Posted by maraudertimes in Notoriously Notorious, 06 April 2014 - - - - - - · 157 views

Having been perusing the internet doing goodness knows what dear old Lo does on the internet, I came across a few websites (namely Wikipedia) that detailed the Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations. If you don't know what the Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations are, it is a list that Georges Polti created, describing every dramatic situation that can happen in a stor...

Theories on my Identity

Posted by ohmydrapple in ohmydrapple's Blog, 05 April 2014 - - - - - - · 637 views

Theories on My Identity
 
In this essay I will argue that I am not in fact a real member and am actually a staff member in disguise. I will also support the claim that there are other members who were around for April 1st 2014 who were also staff members in disguise.
 
Who am I? Who are my friends? My conclusion is incomplete. Please comment...

The Comfort Zone

Posted by skippee in From Space With Love, 03 April 2014 - - - - - - · 140 views

This past weekend, I found myself in a very interesting position.  I was sitting at home on Saturday night, around 8 pm, with a story that would not get out of my head.  And I mean really good and stuck.  I finally sat down and decided to do something about it.  When I finished about 4 hours later, my first thought was, "Ahh... much be...

Hey guys! This is my first blog entry and has been scratching at the back of my brain to be talked about to someone... so why not you guys?  :blushing:
 
Here is goes. My characters are me. Not in a direct sense, but somehow they have some aspect that falls into my many complexities. They hold my sorrows, my happiness, hopes, dreams, anguish, an...

Wizarding Justice Act (part 1)

Posted by Aphoride in The Jolly Roger, 28 March 2014 - * * * * * · 341 views

(Warning: I’m a Brit and a law student, which means there will be very long sentences and lots of rambling. And just a long blog in general. Sorry about that in advance…)
 
So when I saw toomanycurls blogs on wizarding business and economy - which are brilliant, so you should really check them out if you haven't! - I was persuaded to do t...

In this post I'd like to talk about the job market for witches and wizards [s]as well as muggle:wizard commerce and wizard:wizard international commerce. (I'll have to talk about that next time. Oops)
