Help! I need a new FC!

Posted by stillroisin in stillroisin (roisin) Blog, 26 November 2014 - - - - - - · 58 views

So my Main Character in Year Five (Tristan) has so far been represented by the actor, Craig Roberts (12+) . And I love him for it, I really do. He looks like an average teenage boy, and is excellent at appearing angsty. I loved the faceclaim so much, that after picking him, I edited the entire novel with that actor in mind (which is a great way of checki...

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

Posted by Midnight spark in The Madness Of A Blog, 24 November 2014 - * * * * * · 88 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...

Irksome Things about the Potterverse

Posted by wolfgirl in The Lovechild of Winter, Music & the Witching Hour, 24 November 2014 - - - - - - · 167 views

Please be advised that much of this is ranting  :ranting:  and that some might find these things inflammatory or feel the need to rebut all of the plot holes I'm poking in our fandom.  If you don't think you can handle them, probably turn back now.  Also, SPOLIER ALERT!
 
Don't get me wrong, I and I think everyone on this sit...

Done With NaNo

Posted by BellaLestrange87 in Bella's Blog, 23 November 2014 - - - - - - · 80 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...

Themed Reviews (Spooky)

Posted by Chazzie in Oh In This Head Of Mine, 23 November 2014 - - - - - - · 113 views
reviewing, Halloween

Hello!

You may know that in October this year, I asked if anyone would like a spooky themed review. The theme in this case being Halloween, and the idea being monstrosity's. The response was fantastic, and I certainly had a lot of fun.

Now, you may be wondering what a themed review is. To put it simply, it is a review that is fun and doesn't exactly st...

on old stories

Posted by Ravenclaw333 in Ravenclaw333's Blog, 23 November 2014 - - - - - - · 103 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...

Marketing a Story

Posted by Ilia in The Scribbler, 20 November 2014 - - - - - - · 191 views

Since my entry into the work force, I have come to understand quite a bit more about how a business works. When you have a product you want people to consume, you have to make it available as an option everywhere. Marketing and advertising is a HUGE part of a business, and it actually is quite an influential factor of whether or not your product gets pick...

A Story with No 'E' - The 'Gadsby' It Challenge

Posted by kalkay in Rambling, Raves, Rants, Rubish..., 18 November 2014 - - - - - - · 105 views

The 'Gadsby' It Challenge (12+) was my first go at constructing a prompt for a author who wasn't yours truly. That was in surplus of thirty-six months ago. Coming forwards from that day, I grasp what a trial, and how much hard work is put forth to finish such a trial, as I am finding sigificant difficulty combating such an mandatory part of my communicat...

My Triumphant Return (OR) Gosh, I Really Missed Writing

Posted by moonbaby11 in Sing for the Laughter, Sing for the Tears, 16 November 2014 - - - - - - · 127 views

When I sat down in October to reread three of my four NaNo novels for inspiration for this November, I never expected it to lead me back to HPFF. After finishing reading my work again and being hit with the nostalgia of it all - remembering where the ideas came from or what I had been thinking when I had written it - brought me back to thinking about my f...

The Slash Challenge Results

Posted by crestwood in No Name Came To Mind , 12 November 2014 - - - - - - · 199 views

Okay, before I do anything, I just want to say how difficult this has been to come to a decision on this. I know everyone says that, but seriously you guys wrote me some pretty mind-blowing stories. The stories were overwhelmingly well written and I hope people go through and read these because all of you are ridiculously talented.

Research

research, beltane

I feel as if I've been researching for forever. This will probably be the most research that I ever do regarding fanfiction because I'm completely unaware of some  parts of pagan religion. I've used resources such as my friends, whom practice this, and the wonderful internet. I've cross referenced and I have one chapter floating around on a pers...

After more than two years, to finally return again...

Posted by Christine_Nighting in The Mind of a Girl-Gamer, 12 November 2014 - - - - - - · 93 views

I just got finished doing this entire blog post, when my laptop froze up. Thanks, laptop.
 
Anyway, I was a pretty active member of HPFF and its forums two years ago, when I wrote my Raven Black and the Temple of the Night series. It's been a while, that's to say. I used to write 3 page chapters, and now I write 8 page chapters twice a week. No...

Oh look, a random blog post. :D
 
I know that I should be planning for NaNo or doing homework or something, but here's the thing:  it's my fall break this week, and I've been on a serious reading binge.  Thus far, I've read six YA novels, finished reading a novel for one of my classes, and I literally JUST finished reading ANOTHER YA novel....

Today I began uploading chapters for my story, The Minister of Magic's Daughter (M). It has been a 4 year journey and looking back, so much has changed over that time.
 
I started this story in 2010, I can still remember telling a friend about the intial concept as I was walking through the old Crater of Mt Ruapehu. At that time, I just had snatches...
