Hi fellow Aquarius! Amethysts, am I right?!?


Haha, yep. XD Except, when I chose the stone for my high school class ring, I didn't like the purple Amethyst stone so I went with some kind of a blue one (I don't even know what stone it was any more) 'cause blue's my favorite color. :P I'm such a rebel. XD

List has been updated!

You still have time to get your submissions in if you haven't yet!

I've never really been a horror book fan. I don't know if you'd count these as being horror, but I did grow up reading the Goosebumps books, and I read one or two of R.L. Stein's Fear Street books when I was a little older. I also loved Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, which they're apparently making a movie out of. They BETTER do a decent job with it!

I watched the 90's TV movie version of Stephen King's IT when I was in middle school (I know everyone else who's seen this movie is afraid of clowns because of it, but it's never phased me? I mean, OBVIOUSLY the clown is bad but never made me afraid of clowns or made me not want to watch the movie?). I remember going to the library and deciding to take the book mom has probably never even seen the movie, and she's never read any of King's books, so she had 0 idea what it was about.

I got a few chapters in, and then I got to a sex scene. Immediately I was like "eww, this isn't like the movie!"


Yeah...I'm really not a horror fan. I like campy movies, like the Poltergeist trilogy. I finally watched Carrie for the first time (the original, not the one that was eventually remade some time in the last 10-15 years?) and I liked it enough that I have it on DVD (although it was like $5.00 so I figured why not?). I like watching IT (I still need to watch the remake), and Hocus Pocus and Sleepy Hollow. That's...really the extent of it, and I would be iffy on classifying all of those as actually being horror. There are several movies that I actively avoid watching - House on Haunted Hill (the one that came out in the 90s), 13 Ghosts, the SAW movies...I can't even remember what else is on my list.

That turned into a little tangent, sorry. :P

Resources & Research / Re: Fantasy Scrivener Template
« on: September 23, 2018, 09:56:35 PM »
I tried to find it on the internet if you can open any of my files if you are using Mac. Because Mac's most recent version is 3 and Windows most recent version is 1, you can't open them yet. Once version 3 is released, which should be before the end of 2018, it will be possible to open Windows files on a Mac computer and vice versa. I'm planning on buying the version the moment it becomes available and then I'll post the updated version of my template! =)

You know, I haven't even tried to do an update of Scrivener or anything...and it hasn't told me that it needs to be updated. So maybe that's part of it- I don't have the most recent version of Scrivener. I should look into it and see if there's some kind of an update I need to install, but will otherwise wait until version three is released.

No one has any tips for writing difficult scenes? They don't even have to be something you're 100% knowledgeable about, just...something that youv'e learned to do with them based on your own experiences with writing them.

Update: I also made myself a Twitter account for my author-y stuff. No idea how often I'll tweet, but I'll at least attempt it. Go ahead and follow me!

What are your best tips for writing difficult scenes? They can be fight scenes, love scenes, political scenes, etc.

If you have any ideas for other questions of the day, please feel free to reply to this post with them. Also feel free to share the link to this post and invite your friends to respond, it is guest friendly!

Late welcome is late! Welcome to the forum, @GWProuse!

Aah, another Disney and Supernatural fan! :D I love pretty much almost anything and everything Disney. I've been a fan of Supernatural since the first season came out on DVD, although I need to catch up was in the middle of season 13 when I was moving, and the DVR recordings got deleted off of my mom's DVR so I haven't caught up yet. I need to do that at some point between now and when it comes back in October.

Let us know if you have any questions or anything, and I look forward to seeing you around the forum!

Question of the Day / Re: Question of the Day #42: Rewriting a Story
« on: September 19, 2018, 05:13:55 PM »
When I was in high school, back before the Pirates of the Caribbean films made pirates a mainstream kind of cool, I went through a big pirate phase and wrote a novel about a female captain in a semi-futuristic setting who had a chaos-sewing crew of miscreants from every corner of the world. They liked wrecking stuff, had a connection to a sperm whale that was at least a magical guide and at most an ancient sea god, and they answered, as a dozen other ships did, to one pirate "king" who lived in the Canary Islands.
I don't even think I have a copy of my original draft anymore, but I'd be really into rewriting it one day.
This sounds like it has strong Firefly vibes to me, at least with the captain and crew part. You should totally rewrite it!
