  1. You refer to your characters as people without even realizing it until later 😳
  2. I will be praying! 🙏🏻 Please keep us updated.
  3. Oh @lynnmosher I am so sorry! 😥 I will certainly be praying.
  4. Please tell me that I am not the only one who recites/acts out entire conversations between people to make sure they sound good...😳🤣
  5. That is exactly what I need it for, @Johne! I have a huge cast in my fantasy story and when I do work on it it's always out of order. Maybe I'll just start putting my fantasy stuff in there when I work on it (which is only occasionally).
  6. What do people think about "The Eagle and the Dragon" as the name of a fantasy series? Individual books would probably be titled just Book 1, Book 2, etc. For a quick rundown, the Eagle and Dragon are the symbols of the royal houses of the two people groups at odds with each other in the story. My main character is biracial with a parent from each royal house. I've had this story in my head for thirteen years (lol I know, why don't I write it already) but could never think of a name. I came up with it a few months ago.
  7. I know. 😜 I think part of the problem is I'm not at the point where I feel I really need it just yet since my current WIPs don't have massive worldbuilding, which is what I think I would use it for. So maybe I'm not willing to devote time to the tutorials yet. 😂 I'll probably need it eventually for my fantasy or sci-fi stories, at which time I'll have to dive in again.
  8. I tried using Scrivener today (30-day trial) and ran for the hills after 10 minutes. 😂 I know it's amazing, but I think I need to take Scrivener 101 and possibly 202 first.
  9. That is awesome @William D'Andrea!! Praise God!! I struggle with pressure, vertigo, and hearing loss as I mentioned earlier. Pressure is my most common symptom. Usually I find it is a reaction to an allergen, such as pollen, dust, etc.
  10. Something like 4 I really love. I think they're calling it "rose gold". The last one is awesome too.
  11. @Alley, I am DYING over that Transformer one 😂🤣
  12. I agree with Spaulding on this. Think the first Star Wars for instance. Luke destroys the Death Star but not the Empire. It could stand on its own since George Lucas had no clue if he'd ever make another movie, but it left lots of room for continuation. Now he could go even more cliffhanger-y (since the end of the original Star Wars is not really that much of a cliffie) but I wouldn't make it so crazy that the readership gets mad, as others have mentioned. So... yes over here to cliffhanger, but not to the big cliffhanger.
  13. Thank you for posting this question, @Carolyn W, I have been struggling with the same worry since I have a story I want to work on down the road about the disciples Simon the Zealot and Matthew. I, like you, have been disturbed by the idea of putting words in Jesus' mouth so I was interested to see everyone's responses. Thank you everyone for the great input. I think you have a great solution, Carolyn! Not sure what I'm going to do for mine yet since I can't take them out of 33AD! Lol!
  14. Wow! I'm glad you were able to go back home. Praying for you, and glad you can enjoy your vacation. Be well and have fun!
