After a long break

Posted by handknittedsweaters in The Desk of Handknittedsweaters, 23 December 2014 - - - - - - · 53 views

Rebekah here again. After one measly post and a year long break, my co-author and I have returned to writing and are just plugging along with our story Breakoff Altitude (you can read it here <3   (M)). It's kind of weird how you can just rekindle the same story idea so quickly even after a long break. I'm really excited to see where our cha...

JKR Extra Info

Posted by harrypotterlover1 in Cannons Thougts, 22 December 2014 - - - - - - · 248 views

Let me first say that I am a huge fan obviously.
 
Ok, so I don't know why but this past year I have had a change of heart regarding extra information. Before I would love more information on characters and anything really but as she keeps releasing things it's beginning to annoy me.
 
JKR releasing things like Dumbledore being gay, something ab...

Ilia is taking suggestions!

Posted by Ilia in The Scribbler, 21 December 2014 - - - - - - · 125 views

Hi, everyone!
 
I'm off for a couple of weeks for break and I have a whole lot of time and enthusiasm to write! I'm working on a few WIPs right now (mainly focusing on Kissing In Private [m]) but I am in the mood to try some new stuff!
 
That's where you guys come in! I need some inspiration!
 
I am taking suggestions and prompts for so...

Peeves as an outlet for excessively hormonal or angsty teenagers and pre-teens

Posted by pookha in the tarn, 21 December 2014 - - - - - - · 86 views

I've done some thinking about Peeves.  A lot of this, I thought of long ago, but just never put it in writing.
 
I believe that Peeves provides a very important service for Hogwarts.
 
Poltergeists are believed by some to result from teenage angst.  Many RL poltergeist sightings and phenomena (I'm not saying I believe, them BTW) have t...

(For those of you following) Everto Trucido

Posted by Rumpelstiltskin in Rumpelstiltskin's Blog, 20 December 2014 - - - - - - · 89 views
Rewrite, Edits, Changes

For those of you following Everto Trucido  (my first fanfic ever),
 
Over the past two months I've had very little time to write while I've been taking care of my baby, facing a whole slew of new parent/new baby issues (mostly the "this baby never sleeps, how can she just not sleep?" kind).  I have however had many hours to think (whi...

The Editing Dilemma

Posted by marauderfan in the nomadic writing desk, 17 December 2014 - - - - - - · 110 views

Editing. We all do it, because we see that section of the story that makes us cringe due to typos or strange word choice and then we have to fix it. That makes sense. But where is the point at which you stop editing?
 
I have a story that is complete, but every once in a while I'll randomly think of a scene in it and how it doesn't make sen...

Last Chance for "My Life in Gold"!

Posted by stillroisin in stillroisin (roisin) Blog, 16 December 2014 - - - - - - · 115 views

So a while ago I wrote a story called My Life In Gold (12+) for Maia/Milominderbinder's "Reset the Default Challenge."
 
The story has gotten a really great response around here, which inspired me to write an OF version of the story. That story, too, got quite a good reaction in my creative writing class, and my professor has encouraged me to submit...

ON HOLD: Snakes & Ladders

Posted by jessicalorewrites in jessicalorewrites' Blog, 14 December 2014 - - - - - - · 83 views

Not many people will know this of me, but before my 'first' novel-length Snakes & Ladders (M ) was validated to this site I had two other accounts (at different times, mind) where preteen me would write rather lame stories which just weren't entertaining to read and were above and beyond embarrassing with twelve mary sues and fourteen gary sues p...

Ok Entrants. I'm so sorry for the delay in the results. You have all been waiting patiently. :thanks: . So now, without further ado, here are the results!
In Third Place, with What It Was (15+), is StillRosin!
 
This was a lovely oneshot, set in Shell Cottage. I love how StillRosin managed to include House Elves (my favourite characters) and a...

Themed Reviews (Winter) Sign Up

Posted by Chazzie in Oh In This Head Of Mine, 12 December 2014 - - - - - - · 106 views

Hey everybody!

In my last blog post I asked if anyone thought that winter themed reviews would go down well. The response was a definite yes, so here I am. The idea is pretty similar to the spooky reviews I did at Halloween, but obviously being themed arround the many winter holidays/celebrations that are happening round about this time of year.

So lon...

Christmas! (and the 12 Days of Elfmas)

Posted by maraudertimes in Notoriously Notorious, 07 December 2014 - - - - - - · 116 views

Hello everyone! My name is Lo and I adore Christmas! It's true, it's true, I'm 95% done my Christmas shopping and wrapping and I'm all set for the holidays! I love Christmas so much that I decided to write a blog about it! Wow, that's a no-brainer considering the title, but there's a few things I want to address:
 
Christmas is a time where I love to...

A Year in Review

Posted by TidalDragon in Learning to Roar, 07 December 2014 - - - - - - · 127 views

On November 29th, 2013, I joined the archive and began writing my first "published" fic and longest work to date, Evolution . Since that time, I've become much more involved in the HPFF community as a whole, joining the forums on February 13th, 2014 and making great friends through my house, my review thread, challenges, and other activities. With my arch...

In addition to that, there are a few things you need to note that I forgot to mention/have changed from the original post. I've tacked them onto the original post below.  :109:

'tis the Season - for Rewrites!

Posted by Slide in Slide Headfirst, 03 December 2014 - - - - - - · 98 views

This is apparently the en vogue  thing. Or, I've seen other people assailed by the same anguish as me, and while I could read up on their thought process I need to remember where it was written and find it, and ain't nobody got time for that. Also I'm an egotist so I have to write my  thoughts.
 
Rewriting. That story you penned a...

A Guide to (Unsuccessfully) Keeping Your Characters Alive

Posted by kalkay in Rambling, Raves, Rants, Rubish..., 02 December 2014 - - - - - - · 106 views

#1 on the list of things I shouldn't write about because I don't know how to do it: Not killing characters.

Sadly I have few actual tips, tricks or hints as to how to keep yourself from killing off your characters. If you've read things I've wrote, you'd understand. It's just not in my repertoire. That being said though I do have some thoughts for you if...

The Woes of Writing Angst

writing, angst, harry potter

Hey!
 
So I've been writing for a while now. If I'm counting just what I've posted online, I think its been roughly...6-7 years of fanfic writing. I've seen myself develop as a writer and my characters become more and more believable. And I have to thank the online community for helping me do that.
 
I didn't write angst when I was younger becau...

Hello once again everyone! :) This post is somewhat in relation to my rather old post about Draco Malfoy's future career options (hence the similar title ;)), except it's for Hermione this time around!
 
In canon, after Hogwarts and the War, Hermione starts off in the Ministry of Magic working for the Department for the Regulation and Control of Ma...

The Seasons and Genre Challenge (some stuff you need to know)

Posted by Midnight spark in The Madness Of A Blog, 24 November 2014 - * * * * * · 131 views

So the idiot me had put the deadline for my ongoing challenge as December 1. :shy: Here's a list of the participants and entries so far. Now, I know that it will be really difficult for the NaNo people here to complete this challenge in time. So I've decided that the ones who have signed up so far and will sign up later will get an extra two weeks to comp...

Done With NaNo

Posted by BellaLestrange87 in Bella's Blog, 23 November 2014 - - - - - - · 112 views

Okay, attempt number 2. This is a PSA to plug in your laptop when the low battery warning comes on.
 
I'm done with NaNo, at least for this year. I have too much on my plate this month, and my procrastinating was too efficient for me to be able to accomplish 30,000. I’m not complaining - if I had ignored the forums during rat races, maybe...

on old stories

Posted by Ravenclaw333 in Ravenclaw333's Blog, 23 November 2014 - - - - - - · 124 views

today, i received a review on one of my older stories that, while not bad enough to be considered a flame, was still rude enough to give me pause. while i didn't agree with the reviewer's specific problem with the chapter, i nevertheless pointed out in my response that if they planned to read my older work, they should be prepared to make allowances for p...
