    Throw your ideas in here!

    Figured we need a place where we can drop our excess plot bunnies for adoptions or get ideas from others about character designs, dialogues, worlds, plots, twists, inspirational pictures/scenes, experience, or anything that would spur the muses to start up again. My latest story was hand written over 20 years ago and I am revamping it to bring it into the 21st century and the Autobot muse decided to go on a road trip. I even read the book that went along with the movie and that didn't even help bring my Autobot muse back to me! And the topic of my story - drug abuse. I'm hoping something will spur my Autobot muse to return to me, till then, I am reading other stories in hopes to get it back. Beth

    Lack of reviews.

    But the thing that I hate the most is that you get a lot of views but maybe one or two reviews! It is like everyone is reading the story, but they don't take the minute to leave a review of the story. I try to review a story after I read the first chapter or the next few chapters that I read. I have never ever not reviewed a story. I feel it is my responsiblity as a reader to give the author a review of their story even if it is a one-liner. And most authors wonder if they should pull their story or leave it even if it is viewed a lot, the lack of reviews is a bit disheartening. Beth
  4. If people vote to delete the Mystery forum, any topic that you want moved to Aimless Babble will be done. But if everyone wants the Mystery forum to remain, we'll let it be and hope more people find the key to get in. Beth

    Look out world!

    For I am now a legal driver! On Monday August 13, 2012, I went in on a spur of the moment decision and took my driver's test and about an hour later, I was walking back to the office with the biggest grin on my face, as I had passed the driving test with a 79. The lowest amount you can get is 70 before you fail the test and have to take it another day. I had problems with one thing only parrell parking, I did get the vehicle half in but I didn't get it all the way in, but she did give me credit for trying. But I am now a legal driver. My vehicle that I drove is this little beauty that I named CJ. It's a 2002 gray Rav4. Beth

    Look out world!

    Willow, just go in and give it your best try, that's what I did and look at me now, I'm a legal driver. I did it in a car I have only drove in my pasture for a week before I took it out on the road and did my test in it and I passed it.
  7. Have my permit to drive! I took the written test today and I passed it missing only two questions. Yes, world, look out I am now an officially able to drive with another driver in the car. First day of schooling starts tomorrow. Beware, I am on the roads! Beth

    RIP mummie.

    My mom Janet, left this world this past Saturday afternoon at 5:35pm. We were all by her side when she left us. She will be cremated and a celebration of her life will be held at a later date when we're up to celebrating. Beth
  9. I didn't come here when I first learned she had tongue cancer back in October 7, 2011. It was successfully defeated with Chemo and Radiation. We thought we were in the clear but sadly, it had already spread throughout her body. The doctor who is treating her says we now have two months to six months left with her. She just came home from the hospital about two days ago to being hospice with us. She's now back in the hospital as her blood pressure is very low. So that is why I have been absent here on the forums and on my normal chat messengers. I mainly get on skype now a days, if you wish to chat with me by skype, PM me and ask me for my handle and please tell me what your handle is in the message so I do not accidentally block you by mistake. The picture below is my mom Janet and my dad Richard, the day we learned she had tongue cancer, we announced it to the family that night. Beth

    My mom has cancer.

    Mom is now on Hospice and weighs 98.2 pounds from 118. She's not eating much beyond popsickles. I don't think she will be alive by the end of the month as she's just wasting away in her Hospice bed and as much as we try to get mom to eat something more than popsickles, she just doesn't want to eat anything else. For the last three mornings, we have had thunderstorms, my and I would sit in the living room, she in her hospice bed and me sitting in the chair next to her would watch as the Mother Nature flashed her firework display. For about four hours each morning, it was just me and my mom alone in the living room till my dad would wake up and join us before he would head back to bed after making sure that mom had taken her pain pills and was comfy. kagome2526, spend as much time as you can with your grandma. My grandmother on my mom's side died from it within 7 months of being diagnosed. Make her tell you her family history, just talk about her family, her favorite moments in her life and just enjoy your time with her and help out as much as possible. Beth

The leading lady is untrained in battle and not really a 'leader' but over the course of her stay there, she comes into herself as a leader and does her best to help the band of warriors succeed, but do they? I am planning seriously to have this story published, but I need somoene will not up and leave after two chapters are finished. I am serious about this story.

    Should I give up on my beta?

    For your problem, I would send him an e-mail asking if he's okay and if he will be sending your chapter back to you soon. State that you are concerned as you haven't heard from him and wondering if he's alright. Most likely, as DemonGoddess has said is that Real Life got to him and he probably forgot about it. Bteh

    Should I give up on my beta?

    I have had many beta readers start work on my stories and then eight to nine chapters later, they up and vanish on me. Without sending me anything back or contacting me stating that Real Life got a hold on me and I cannot finish your work, sorry. They just vanish and even when you e-mail them to find out what's up, they ignore your e-mail or that they'll send you a reply stating it will be in your inbox in three days and nothing comes from them. That's when I ditch them and start the search again and hope that the next one will be the one who will stay with you. I'm almost tempted to create a Yahoogroup for beta readers and writers to come together to talk the art and get their work beta read since most of the beta reading groups are filled with porno spammers. Beth AKA Solaris
  16. I've decided to post a tidbit of this story for any possible beta readers to see about becoming my beta reader for this story. I really, really need someone. I'm not good at editing my own work and I do miss a few things in the story like if the plot flows smoothly or had been broken in some place. Please consider becoming my beta reader for this story. Thank you, Beth

    Movie Quote games!

    This one is you put down quotes of a movie without stating what movie it is as everyone has to guess it just by using the quotes itself. So in a way with one guess guessed another quote from that same movie is used to see if the movie can be guessed till the movie is guessed. If after five guesses are up, the movie is not guessed, the poster states the main actor of that movie and what year it was shown in the theatres. If no guesses come from those additional information, the poster will state what movie it was from and posts another movie quote for everyone to guess. Sound like fun, ne? Okay, here is my quote for you to guess. Movie: "Well, fuck me with a hot poker!" Beth
  20. Have you ever realized that your original summary is now not even in line with what the story is? I actually did with my InuYasha story The day love found me, I took the old summary and changed it to fit what the story really was about. Here is my updated summary. Summary: When things get bad they can get worse, a challenge issued may be a blessing or a curse, when a modern girl must face herself in a world and time so different from her own, will the chains from her past bind her or will she entangle herself in the moment? So have you edited your summary or rewrote it to suit your story after you wrote on it for some time? Beth

    Strangest Bleach pairings.

    That you have seen or thought about. The strangest pairing that I thought about was Kenpachi/Unohana pairing. I doubt no one has written about those two and it would be kindof cute if they got together. I'm actaully doing a roundarobin with that pairing in the Bleach catagory. Beth

    Character name rant

    I'm actually working out a story plot to my next original story set on another planet and it is somewhat based on the idea of She-Ra, minus the woman herself. It is the names of the characters that is giving me bloody fucking fits! I have five males, two are not named yet, searching for names for them. I have 7 females of which two are not named and one of them is the leading lady of the whole story. I know I could use my handle of Solaris for one of the two characters but I do not wish to use it for the leading lady. Can anyone suggest good names for the characters who do not have a name? Thanks, Solaris
  23. Adult! You are not a teenager anymore, start behaving like an adult, you bitch! You ranted on your FB about how your son is in the profile picture of your father-in-law whom you despise and wanting it to be taken down, anyway possible even got your lawyer involved on it. Your girlfriends from High School who think your SHIT doesn't stink, cheer you on agreeing with your rant. If your 15 1/2 year old son didn't want the photo done with his grandfather, he would have said so and the photo never done, but your son happens to like his grandpa, even though he has to live with you, he doesn't even likes you! You may act like you are the cat's meow on FB and everywhere else, the thing is, your antics towards your husband's father and people who see you in other lines of work tell a very different story. You act like you are the best thing in town and yet, if you look at what people say about you behind your back, you would be extremely embarressed. You basically act like you are still in High School instead of being an adult, hun. You gossip and rant about people behind their backs and when you are called out to stop it by your own father, you don't! You continue to act like a bloody teenager. It is like you have not grown up from your High School mindset and your friends act the same bloody way. But what do you expect from a small city where some of the adults act like kids and the kids act like adults like this girl's son being the adult as he dislikes you but he has to act like it because it is the only way to keep the house friendly. He is more adult than you ever will be. *done ranting*

  25. I lost my previous Beta and have not found a new one yet. It is a romance story between Nero/OFC/Kryie and Dante/OFC/Trish/Lady. No, it is not a threesome. There will be sex later on in the story but a lot of angst before that point. I can be contacted by e-mail, PM here or by skype ladyducaine. Thank you, Beth
