  1. There was one other time someone did something like this for me, she also had me baking/cooking. Funny thing is, I actually don't enjoy it at all! (I get too bored, my mind wanders, and I mess up the recipe. Also it just dirties more dishes...). The whisk is because of a pun. I guess it's hard to read in the circle, but it says, "my friends get mad when I steal their kitchen utensils, but that's a whisk I'm willing to take." And I say that last part any time I grab a whisk. I'm actually very much an indoor person. I don't like being cold or out in the rain, but I absolutely

    Current life with my toddler. While reading a book, she asked me twice what something was before I had the chance to reply, so I couldn't help myself. I said, "a hunter-destroyer machine!"

  3. I am a bit concerned with this comment here. Are you trying to say Christianwriters.com shouldn't "entertain" this? Because unfortunately, that's the problem with censorship today. People disagree with something and just delete what they don't like. I'm grateful this link isn't deleted so that we can make our own decisions and I seriously LOVE the amount of love that is evident here because people do a great job at not judging others poorly, and can have kind conversations regarding disagreements. Also, as someone who used to get concerned and frightened about videos like this for
  4. I appreciate your honesty, @William D'Andrea! That's why there are so many different ways to communicate. Nothing works for everyone. I really appreciate that you tried. There's no pressure for anyone to join, or to stay if they don't like it. It's just another option for those who want to use it.
  5. I really like the discussion about comparing notes on what type of character they rooted for most. It's definitely interesting to think about what you enjoyed main characters, to help determine what to write. (Also, "grateful" connects to my character, so hopefully in on the right path!)
  6. For those who haven't seen it, I set up a Discord! It's not connected directly to this website, even though it currently has the same name (I struggle with naming things). @Ky_GirlatHeart @Joshua Benefiel @Claire Tucker @Jeff Potts You four showed interest, right? The link is: https://discord.gg/XwbFwUpf
  7. Making decisions! I'm currently struggling to decide just when a character gets rescued... Or if she actually gets rescued... Or maybe she escapes... But when? And I have other plot points to take into consideration with each option. My brain just kind of doesn't stop.
  8. Laptop cord was supposed to be brought down today. Parents ended up not coming over after all. They will be mailing it, so I'm not quite sure when I'll have it back.  Meanwhile, Shiny lies comatose in her laptop case, waiting for life support, as I go through withdrawals.

  9. I was actually thinking about college, but to be honest? I think my high school would have allowed it. My high school seemed to be lenient on a lot of things though, and it's one reason I hated it so much. Edit, my husband did in fact use the f word in an essay. Different high school. Didn't get in trouble. Not that he condones it anymore.
  10. I appreciate all the discussion about this, it's interesting to see how people feel about it. I wanted to add, and I think this was mentioned briefly, but I don't think the point is to never use swear words in writing. I don't think it's lazy to let your character say it if they are that type of person (though as a sensitive person, I strongly appreciate those who say "they swore" or cut them off before typing the full word. Especially when I read to my husband, since we like to enjoy books together, I won't read those words aloud). But if you're writing an essay for school, as the example sho
  11. I'm open to seeing what you think about me! I enjoy these.
  12. Oh, wow, so many deaths! I'll be praying.
  13. If we can justify things just because it's realiatic, then we can justify a very boring story where people repeat themselves often, say "um" after every other word, blabber on for hours about nothing important, interrupt each other all the time... The list goes on. Besides, if it's not improving the conversion, perhaps instead of instilling it as "normal" we can encourage de-normalizing it (I'm sure there's a better term for that... I'm too lazy to figure one out ). I've heard the idea that it's lazy, but I like how the "green test" goes into more detail.
  14. Just watched the brandy one. That's a good one! Reminds me of some of my horrible earlier writing! (In which my friend pointed out, "He pulled a shotgun out of his pocket??")
