    In regards to the article, I agree with Desiderius and Dirty. It was only 187 words with no real explanation of how to use Histrionics other than to say “don’t use it”. (And yes, I actually checked his word count.) Honestly, in my opinion, that article was a joke. Just telling others that such devices shouldn’t be used is a little presumptuous considering there is no context to the advice being given. The author does not know the degree of writing experience of his audience and does nothing to exaggerate on the meaning he is trying to convey, which leaves the readers confused and unsure of how or whether to use this literary device. That would be like having a gay character not be flamboyant in any way or having a surfer not use any beach slang. It also constrains the character and his/her actions within the work and, if a writer is attempting to create a realistic situation with real characters, then such actions like slamming a door or punching a wall or throwing a book would be necessary as they are real-life actions taken by real-life people. Okay, I’m done ranting now.
  2. Feedback use to effect me and how I would write a story. I had one work called ‘The Gates of Heaven and Hell’ and it ended up with two split timelines – one that the readers seemed to like then the one that I originally envisioned. Needless to say that the “favorite” version was never finished. I lost interest even though readers seemed to like it because I wasn’t as invested in that storyline as I was in my original one. That taught me an important lesson. I think it’s a Catch-22. It’s hard to find a balance between what you enjoy writing and what readers will enjoy. If you aren’t happy then chances are the work won’t see a conclusion. Plus, you have those readers who are ardent followers of a writer and will read anything and everything said writer publishes. My process is different now. I tend to write several chapters before I consider posting any work, and most of the time it doesn’t see the light of the internet. LOL. Saying all that, I do have one work where I have had lots of reviews and that has encouraged me to continue writing, though things don’t get put out there as much. And I do work collaboratively with other writers and readers. There have also been suggestions (some in reviews and some emailed to me) that I have taken into consideration and even implemented into the work. I believe that it’s based on a “case by case” scenario. There are some stories that you create and don’t want to see major changes and then there are some that you feel free enough to take those risks. I think it depends on how you feel about a work as to how it progresses, whether that is the pace of your writing or the plot of your story.
  3. Sent you an email. XD

  4. I can't wait for the anime con!!

  5. It's taken me about a week but I got my desktop running now. Put another gig of ram in, had to default to CS3 but I have all of the FF .docs from my laptop (now backed up) on it. Now I have to go find my muse. ;(

    Thank you so much! I'm getting the same thing and it's driving me crazy. It took me thirty minutes just to login. I swear I'm about to throw my laptop out a window.
  8. Games of Thrones was so F*CKING awesome and yet I'm so F*CKING pissed. I've got to get the second book but I don't want to wait a year for season two. SO UNFAIR! *sobs*

      If you've already read the books. you don't have to wait that long for new stuff; Dance With Dragons, the fifth book is out in july. (supposedly, with martin you never know)

    3. DemonGoddess


      I know, I've been waiting for that book for years.

      still if he doesn't come out with the sixth and seventh books more quickly, the shows going to out pace him. If it survives that long anyway.

  9. I've been in a slump lately. My muse seems to have abandoned me for the moment. Any suggestions? I've tried just about everything.

      Then she gets pissed and give me the next chapter.

    Hopebringer Jem's challenge to all!

    So theme-wise, it would be plays. Are you looking for either original characters or ones from a fandom in as the "characters" from the play?

    Hopebringer Jem's challenge to all!

    Does it matter which playwright we draw from? For example, can it be a modern playwright or should it be one that the playwright had passed (after so many years, the play can be used without paying royalty fees and etc.)?

    Thanks for the compliment, Jem. I'd love your help. I'm not worried about a time schedule at the moment. I feel that I am far enough along that small delays won't hurt me so your sporadic net activity is not a problem for me. I'll PM you with my private email address.

    Beta and Brainstorming

    Information on fiction: Fandom: Ruin Explorers (Anime) Title: Ruin Explorers (not original, I know) Pairing: Ihrie / OC / Lyle (other various pairings) Rating: Adult+ Story Link: Ruin Explorers Warnings: Abuse, Angst, H/C, M/F, OC, Tort, UST My personality: I'm laid back, easy going and am not easily offended, which I consider a plus. My desire: This was a work I started over ten years ago and was never finished. I really want to complete this. There is a great lack of fiction from this anime and I loved the OVA (though I was extremely unsatisfied with how it ended). Plus, my writing skills have greatly improved since then. Details about how I write: I started the revision process last month (on the May 15th) and having been steadily pumping out chapters. (I will not post what chapter I am currently working on in the forums.) I don't have a set limit to the chapters but I prefer to keep their length within a 5 to 12 page range - (my average seems to be 8). I think this helps me and it will give my beta an idea of the expected length. Something not too long is easier to "get through" than something 20 pages. I also like to post weekly. Details about the story: The story focuses on Ihrie, one of two of the main characters. She is cursed and I wanted to write about how she might have lifted her curse. I have several original characters since there was a limit to who was introduced through the anime. There are sex scenes and battle scenes that I have already written. {Examples of how I write sex scenes: Indelible (Inuyasha; Sess/Kag) & Rapturous (Ruin Explorers; Ihrie/Lyle), can also be seen as a prologue to this multi-chapter work.} I used several different generators to help me with names and such, which is why some of them look weird (I include pronunciations at the end of the chapters). Note: It's been a long time since I have written battle scenes so I do not have anything I can offer as as example. Everything I have is over two years old. Requirements: I would need someone to bounce ideas off of and offer them. Suggests would always be welcomed, even if you think they are 'out of left field', conversations and ideas evolve so I am willing to discuss even the craziest of ideas though I may not use them. I guess that's where my plot bunnies come from. (If I end up using any ideas, I give credit. So don't worry.) Helping me keep things 'straight' - like details, maybe something I missed/forgot or something seems confusing. Constructive criticism is always welcomed. I do not shy away from that. My feelings aren't going to be hurt and I would prefer someone likewise. If I reject an idea, I am not offending the architect and I would like someone who understands this. The warnings above pertain to what I had already planned for the storyline, which were written/flushed out chapters, and could change (which I'm willing). Please keep this in mind. I am well past that and am beginning to have some difficulties with coming up with plausible ideas. I don't want some 'out of left field' twist that won't make sense within my story (does that make sense?). I do not require prior knowledge since the world and characters were not that well flushed out. I prefer to communicate through email so having a forum account isn't a requirement. Though not required, I would also love advice on my writing. What you think, my details (describing and such), certain scenes (battles and sex), conversations and any other thing that you believe could be improved. Perks: First to read chapters, access to my notes and ideas, harassing or giving me a hard time is completely acceptable. Sometimes you just need a good kick in the ass to get going again. Thank you for reading my post.
