So we both forgot that the deadline for the OYAN novel contest was Wednesday. (oops.) Anyways, we both edited like crazy and submitted our novels! But all that editing left no time for writing short stories. So this is a *little* late. Next week, we should be back on track. 🙂
Also, thanks for all the nice comments on the last story.
I was challenged with the prompts above, and here’s the story. I like this one a lot more, haha.
It snowed here. It only snows a few times here, and the snow isn’t that great typically. But we got a several inches, and I went out for a while.
- snow covered trees change the whole landscape
- fog on snow is really pretty (not if you’re skiing, then it’s terrifying)
- my dog could be a model for a hallmark Christmas card. he likes to sit and stare up at the falling snow.
- that crunch when you step on dry snow
- it’s so quiet outdoors (unless you’re one of those people who like to scream to break the silence)
While I was outside, I was thinking about characters. I half expected to find a lamp post in the middle of my woods, but that sadly didn’t happen. I wondered if I’d be able survive if I did find Narnia, considering that a lot of the food there (turkish delight for example) would not be good. On one hand, the evil White Witch wouldn’t bother me because I don’t eat sweets, but on the other, could I survive? Continue reading
Maybe you’ve seen a few posts and stuff with the hashtag RebelliousWriting. When I found out what it was, I jumped on the bandwagon. I’m not usually one to do stuff like this, but I emphasize with the message.
So, Aster, now that you’ve rambled on for a few sentences, what is Rebellious Writing?
It’s a movement started by Gray from graymariewrites. Since she put it so eloquently, I’ll just paste what she wrote.
#RebelliousWriting is a movement that demands for wholesome books. Books that are full of light, good morals, family, friendships, and adventures, instead of books full of darkness, swearing, sex, vile relationships, and lust. Let’s rebel against the social book standards that scream at us to fit in, in order to be cool or relevant.
I realized that after all these goal related posts, that I haven’t really talked about my own goals, completed or in progress. (Or somewhere floating around in the galaxy…)
If you missed the whole motivation saga, you can read them now. (The Best Websites for Keeping Writing Goals +Camp NaNo, What to do When Lacking Motivation to Write, Why We Write)
Otherwise, this post is going to be about my own writing stuff. Expect lots of rambling. Continue reading
Anybody heard of Pinterest? I try not to spend my whole life on the site. It’s seriously addictive. I primarily began using it for writing. Why Pinterest, you ask. Isn’t that only for clothing and food? I’m here to tell you that Pinterest is amaze for writing. No this isn’t an advertisement for my Pinterest account, even though I might use some examples and I wouldn’t mind the followers. 😛

*claps hands gleefully* This is one of my favorite topics. Yeesh, even if you’re not a writer, keep reading. My joy and excitement alone are amazing.
Let’s talk worldbuilding. My computer still underlines it with red squiggles, but worldbuilding is a word in my book. What’s worldbuilding? Basically, building a world. Rocket science, I know. Oh, but it’s so much fun. You take a flat piece of earth, and make it into an amazing world. That’s how I started writing, actually. I made up an entire imaginary world in my head while doing the dishes, and it grew, and grew, and grew some Continue reading
