  1. The Giver series is like that too, I think. I remember wondering how or if book 2 was even actually connected.
  2. I'm kind of confused by this comment. We have a group thing here, don't we? It's not intended to write with a bunch of people while talking over a mic, but there would be some challenges to work on in your own time and return by a certain day/time to share either how many words you managed to do in a set time, or what you ended up doing with a writing prompt, etc. (Some could be over mic if people wanted to schedule something for that, because there are writers who enjoy working with the atmosphere of other writers doing the same thing, with a little bit of chatting--but typing was my main intention, not microphone). Have you heard of NaNoWriMo? Hey, praying about it is always a great start! But just fyi, the mic isn't necessary. It's only for those who choose to do it. I've been part of 3 Discord servers and never participated in a voice chat. It's completely optional, as you would have to deliberately go into the channel that has that (or call/accept a call from a buddy), enable it to access your mic or not, mute yourself, mute others that you don't want to hear, etc. It's super personalizable for your comfort. But again, I understand if some people don't want to, I was just looking to see if anyone did. It also doesn't have to be over Discord, I just was hoping for something organizable that won't get lost in other threads (I'm open to suggestions).
  3. "Channel" may be the wrong term, I think the technical terms are "server" or "chat." Discord.com is a website that can be very organized. Like forums, but quicker to see what all there is and to scroll through the different spots. Here's a screenshot of something my husband had tried to set up once, we could add and delete channels (on the left side where it says "text channels") as necessary, and you just go in and type what you need in each section, like different forum section. We can set it up to have an invite to be able to join, so that it stays private to the group.
  4. I know writing isn't an interactive sport normally, but I so badly want to DO something with other writers. Like, games, activities... some people nearby are doing NaNoWriMo and I'm not participating this year since I'm focusing on editing my novel, but I really miss the write-ins and fun things they plan. One of them mentioned a Twitch marathon--not sure what they would do on it, but I've seen a couple Twitch channels where the people are writing a story and let the viewers make suggestions and such, and I thought maybe I could set up a twitch account--and then I remember that I'm actually super shy when it comes to my writing, and that is a very public place, but does anyone have any ideas on some fun interactive things to do with other writers? Maybe some challenges that we can suggest like, "incorporate a storm in the next scene" or we each get to tell each other what the weather forecast is for another person's story. "The last thing you ate is what your character is going to eat next" or even give a brief description of our characters and someone has to use them as a cameo in their story... Is anyone down for stuff like this? Also, someone had asked if there was a Discord channel for this forum, is that something people would be interested in joining and actually participating in if I were to try and set it up? (I've never set up my own, but is it all that hard?)
  5. I could believe either age, but I like HK1 says, I feel like 15 would be more likely for feeling guilt.
  6. Had a nice scare. Slammed my laptop closed in frustration about something else. It froze up, so I was feeling nervous and hoping I didn't ruin anything. After a few minutes I heard an odd scritch/scratch/crackle sound. I was scared that I broke something really important inside... instead I noticed that a video was playing on YouTube...  "OLD LIBRARY AMBIENCE: Rain Sounds, Book Sounds, Writing Sounds, Candle Flame Crackle"

  7. My headphones are either plugged in but chilling on the desk, or plugged in and in my ears but with no music actually turned on.

    It's the thought that counts.

  8. Email I have from WordPress is from "donotreply@wordpress.com" and on top of that, the harassment sounds like spam. I'd personally put a filter on that email to send it to spam (if not trash) and ignore it. But I have gmail so I can't help regarding yahoo filters.
  9. I do agree with writing both. The fiction one has my attention!
  10. Female angels? I don't recall any scripture that refers to this. I agree. The "bride" is more of a generic metaphor, to refer to how we relate to Christ, I don't believe you're off-base at all.
  11. "This is nice," Dumpling said, "but home is better." -Family Sabbatical

  12. Ready to go home from vacation... Praying I'll actually be able to. Supposed to be home by tomorrow evening but every few hours there are more evacuations closer and closer to our home. Prayers are welcome!

      Lord lead Josi and her family home safely!  Lord give them a protection that no harm will come to them.  Give them wisdom and a peace when making their decisions!

      Thank you!! The fires are 20% under control. Better than nothing and even though the air quality is still poor, it's not as smokey as I worried. Got home sooner than anticipated with no problems. Looks like we'll be okay at home, but will still prepare bug-out bags just in case something goes wrong. Life is an exciting adventure when your faith is rooted in Christ! (Now to try and get back into writing!)

  13. Exactly. I've looked at different profiles. Some have a tab that shows clubs, or bookmarks, but I've never seen an About Me. That's interesting that you see mine, because someone else said she couldn't see mine. I wonder if it's because you're a Moderator.
