    Really Neat Writing Tools

    All of this crap is free. Now that's out of the way! For those of you who didn't know this last week I did a writing sprint with our very own Ayato, where we wrote 50k words in seven days! While looking at neat things to help with focus, ambience and keeping track of things I discovered two really really awesome things that are 100% free to use zero buying, zero signing up just bam you can use it. The first is A Soft Murmur http://asoftmurmur.com/or on Google Play or the Apple Store It's ambient noise that you can tweak to make it sound like waves, or a crackling fire, creepy singing bowl thing or white noise. So if you're writing a scene during a storm, you turn everything down except for wind, rain, and thunder. Nice night around a crackling fire? Crickets, Fire and a little wind. It even has a coffee shop slider, for those times you want to know what it feels like you're writing in starbucks. It's my new favorite thing next to Google Music. Next is Writometer http://writeometer.guavabot.com/or on Google Play (I don't know if it's on the apple store) I discovered this app a long long time ago and it sat on my phone and I never used it until last week and now I love it. Remember all of that crazy productivity you get during Nanowrimo and those neat graphs that show your progress, how many words you wrote a day, how many you need to write a day to finish your project on time etc. Writometer does that for you It also has a neat timer where you can ear Guavas and you can use these Guavas to purchase time for things like using Facebook or procrastinating otherwise. It also has a little reminder that pops up on your phone if you haven't written by 8 pm. And that's it. Both are free and both are awesome and they get my endorsement. (I don't know why stuff is super double spaced)

    The Ravenwood Legacy

    Author: ChrissyQuinn Title: The Ravenwood Legacy Summary: Everything was finally perfect in sixteen-year-old Violet Wildes' life, that was until she came home from school one day and her parents told her they were moving. One afternoon and her life was turned upside down, now she's stuck at a new school, forced to make new friends and to make matters worse, it's full of Normies. Yes, Normies, normal humans those without the gift of magic. So, it almost goes without saying that she instantly finds herself as an outcast. Now with the help of cousin, twin sister and a little magic she's making the best of junior year at the prestigious Ravenwood Academy. But something lurks in the basement of the school, a link to its past as the primer finishing school for young Magic users. And that something refuses to leave Violet alone. Feedback: greatly appreciated. This is my first story without any super natural elements be kind Fandom: Original! Pairing: M/F Rating: Adult + (might change if feedback warrants it) Warnings: Minor2 WIP Solo story or chaptered story: Chaptered URL: http://original.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600108185

  6. Woke up and did my rough outlines this morning... odd to think that in 3-6 chapters I'll be ready to start song of the seer lol. It feels like I just started Eyes of Fire like a week ago lol

    Fundraising efforts!

    Okay, I'm supposed to be doing a writing sprint so this will be brief! I would be willing to donate cover art and my crazy mediocre layout skills to put together an ebook or even a print book, of Tales from the Shout Box, or whatever our last forum writing thingie was (or we could do a new one). That we could give to people who donate as incentive . Like PBS does, you donate a crazy amount you get ebook, you donate a crazier amount, you get a print copy, you donate an amount that shows you have entirely too much disposable income you get a signed copy of the print book and a cat plushie or something. Anyway it was a crazy idea I had Granted this would require everyone's consent to use their work etc, but other than that I think it would be a neat way to thank you people who donate like 30 dollars and up or something like that.

    Writing fanfiction vs. Plagarism Where

    I think it would be a little jarring to see a certain styles of citation in a story. Especially MLA or APA, those are REALLY intrusive means of citation. If I recall APA you have to cite the entire source the first time you use it, which is (Author, title, Publisher, location, year, medium, page number). I personally think you're going to cite a source in a work of fiction should use Chicago Style (CMS for short) as it's less jarring to look at. Take for instance the one time I used a Shakespeare direct quote in one of my stories I used Chicago style/Turubian/Humanities, which is just a little super script number and an end note and not (Shakespeare XI.vi.270-22) next to the text which would have disrupted flow. But beyond that this is a common sense issue, I believe the disclaimers handle most things beyond direct quotes etc.

    Double Vision Discussion--an Erotic Who Done it

    lol. Yeah maybe on par with it, but I think Mpreg's pretty bad.
  11. Here is a place to discuss theories about who M.M. Adler really is, or to bitch about how much you hate Lily's advice! Don't forget to vote in the poll

    Double Vision Discussion--an Erotic Who Done it

    It could be something even worse! Maybe one of them has Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple personality Disorder).
  14. I'm actually selling books.. I'm not entirely certain how this happened but Danse Macabre is almost in the top 100 in it's genre on amazon... so confused.

    1. ChrissyQuinn

      ChrissyQuinn

      Awe thanks guys. I'm just confused because I haven't done any real marketing or anything. It's like going to a party and having strangers know who you are... it's an odd feeling!

      Darkalley_Muse

      Congrats indeed. Good writing gets good word of mouth. Sometimes, it's that simple. :D

    Now it's 6 votes! Geeze people! C'mon! At this point I'm going to have to add another question... >.> "Which twin do you think it is if it can't be both?" lol
  16. Holy Tornados Batman, so far everything's missed us by a few miles. Between the super tornados, the floods and the wildfires this year I think it's time to start giving the earth its due before we end up with a tornadoquake or something bizzare and terrifying.

      Right? It's definitely time for a change in how we deal with our planet...

  17. ChrissyQuinn

    Are their any unoffical resources for DC stories?

    I don't write fanfiction, but I live with a batman fanatic. http://www.amazon.com/Batman-Psychology-Dark-Stormy-Knight/dp/1118167651 That book is pretty much where it's at for getting into Batman's head though.

      I know, right? The only thing worse is writing about consensual sex between two unrelated adults in the privacy of their own home. :)
