Paranormal/Supernatural Investigations....

Posted by Lady Asphodel in Lady Asphodel's Blog, 31 August 2014 - - - - - - · 80 views

Hi All! Hope this is alright to ask... 
So... there's this story idea running through my head... however... there's a slight plot hole... or obstacle... that is standing in my way...
Um... okay... so...
I was wondering... if there's a murder, ... the murderer was possessed.... and... when police investigate... there...


Unreliable Narration Challenge results!

Posted by Ravenclaw333 in Ravenclaw333's Blog, 30 August 2014 - - - - - - · 79 views

Firstly, a huge apology for how late these results are - I'm consoling myself with the fact it hasn't quite been a month yet, but that's not a particularly big point in my favour. Thank you to everyone who entered - I've read some truly quality writing as a result of this challenge, and I hope you enjoyed writing them!

NaNoWriMo: The Test Run

Posted by 800 words of heaven in Mad Writings, 29 August 2014 - - - - - - · 108 views

So this year for the first time ever, I'm in a position to do NaNoWriMo. Understandably, I am very excited about this. However, I am also a bit nervous since I want to do it properly. And since I am a scientist at heart, I am a strong believer in test runs. That is why I've decided to do one this September!
Basically, what I plan to do is write 50k...


Writing Fantasy

Posted by crestwood in No Name Came To Mind , 29 August 2014 - - - - - - · 84 views

On a whim, I decided earlier today that I wanted to write a blog post about original fiction. Specifically the fantasy genre. I have only completed one work of fantasy before, a novella called Erona. And while I haven't ever gotten much done, I have at least attempted the genre dozens of time in my life.
One thing I find especially difficult to do...


The Secrets of Validating

Posted by Slytherinchica08 in Slytherinchica08's Blog, 29 August 2014 - - - - - - · 148 views

Now before I even begin the actual meat of this blog, I want to first say that there is no trick to getting your story validated faster. We volunteer our time to look over the submissions and so each day is different but we do try to get to the submissions as quickly as we can. 
That being said, there are some tricks to help your submission al...


Lessons at the End

Posted by Slide in Slide Headfirst, 27 August 2014 - - - - - - · 88 views

A good day. That's Starfall finished, or at least the first draft. There'll be editing and tidying, and probably crying over my prose and tiny plot inconsistencies (some of which I have already spotted and need to note down or I'll forget 'em) but it's mostly posting it from here, and it feels good.
Just a head's up, I'll be mentioning, in broad te...


The Ice Bucket Challenge

Posted by randomhpffwriter in A Penny for My Thoughts, 26 August 2014 - - - - - - · 187 views

Yes, this is completely off-topic, but sooner or later, it was probably going to find its way here.
I find this slightly fascinating. More than the challenge, it's the worldwide craze and peoples' reactions to it that interest me. What is so amazing about emptying a bucket of water on your head? Is it because it's filled with ice? I suppose it's th...


The Love Takes Many Forms Challenge Results

Posted by lightthecandle in Ordinary Obscurity, 25 August 2014 - - - - - - · 71 views

First off I wanted to apologise for the delay in announcing the winners, I had some RL stuff to take care of for a week before I could get back on the website! Second, I just wanted to say, as my first challenge, the entries were really good. The writing and imagination was amazing in all of them and I just loved each one for each love form! So congratul...


The Relationship between Language, Sound and Magic

Posted by StarlightAsteria in StarScribed, 24 August 2014 - - - - - - · 139 views

Hi everyone!
So, one of the things I'm researching at the moment (it's fantastic being able to take a year off and just research whatever  I like :) ) is to do with the links between the manipulation of sound and language. So, for example, the Ancient Greeks constructed their verse plays - by developing and adhering to hexameter - for max...


Why do you write fanfiction?

Posted by Pandra in Pandra's Blog, 23 August 2014 - - - - - - · 165 views
Fanfiction, Authors

So I'm currently writing my bachelor's thesis and the topic is fanfiction (lucky me^^),  with the emphasis on reasons for writing fanfiction .
Because I myself am more of a Fanfic-reader than -writer, the author's perspective is especially interesting for me :happy:

For my thesis I made this survey for fanfiction authors.
It only takes around 10 mi...


The Gryffindor/Slytherin Challenge Results

Posted by Lostmyheart in Cookie Jar, 21 August 2014 - - - - - - · 130 views

I am finally presenting you the results from the Gryffindor/Slytherin Challenge!
This is my second try at posting this, and since the first time went wrong and everything I wrote (including small summaries for the stories) disapperared, I'm going to keep this announcement short!
I seriously spend a whole hour last time, and I got so disappoin...


On Hiatus

Posted by DoctorUnderwood in Two Hummingbirds Who Had Never Met, 21 August 2014 - - - - - - · 83 views

Well... College started. So that's fun!

Because of this, I will be on a writing haitus until early/mid December. "Summer of the Abbey" has been completely written, so I will try to add chapters when I can. No guarantees, though.

I will still be reading stories though, so I will not be completely away. I just need to be sure to have plenty of time to...


My Problem With Challenges

Posted by theghostofhislastlaugh in The Ghost of His Last Laugh, 16 August 2014 - - - - - - · 245 views
challenges, pet peeve, creativity

Hello, all! Today, I'm going to write about a bit of an unpopular opinion of why I do not like a lot of challenges. 
I regularly look at the Challenges threads to see if anything catches my eye. Something almost always does, so I consider entering it; that is, until I read that the OP will be assigning topics/characters.
It irks me!
I understand why...

What is a nerd?

Posted by The_Crrokshanks_Saga in The Blog of an Undercover Ninja, 12 August 2014 - - - - - - · 137 views

Hi guys, welcome to THE COOLEST BLOG IN THE WORLD. Anyways, first entry's topic: Nerds.
Over the summer, I went to a camp commonly referred to as "nerd camp". And I met a lot of people, very few of whom actually conformed into the "pocket protecters, glasses, spouting out random facts and always in their own world", though I met people who took fr...


History of Magic

Posted by AdinaPuff in AdinaPuff's Blog, 11 August 2014 - - - - - - · 126 views

I love real world history.  I can sit in a library all day reading on every single war, medical outbreak, depression, etc, all day long, never tiring of it.  It's all so fascinating, and I love learning about people's different ways of life and how far the world has come.
Therefore, it was natural of me to find History of Magic within JK...

Any suggestions for concentration?

Posted by Midnight spark in Midnight spark's Blog, 03 August 2014 - - - - - - · 181 views

Hey guys! I am having this big trouble right now and I really need your help to get out of it! It is my first blog and I had to post this because as far as I know, it is the best way to get help!
So, back to my problem: I have a feeling that I am losing interest in writing. My attention span is zero now-a-days and I really need some suggestions...


The Importance of Age

disclaimer: all the ages used in this blog are examples. I have not given away my age and I have not left any subtle hints as to what my age is, no matter how hard you might try to read into this. I can safely say I'm in between 13 and 64, but that's all you're getting out of me. ;)
So hi. :bye: So I was thinking last night as I walked my dog (of...

Each participant did such a lovely and wonderful job, especially given that they were out of their element and comfort zone in wr...
