    NaNo 2019

    Who is getting ready for NaNoWriMo this year?! I’d like to take November to get the rest of my novel hopefully close to finished. I’d like to be completely done it by the end of the year so I can work on editing and second draft for 2020.

    NaNoWriMo 2018

    Anyone else attempting NaNoWriMo this year? I have lost my mind. I'm doing this. We'll ignore the fact that this is my busy season in the day career. I'm stealing characters I worked on for something 20 or so years ago. And reworking a mystery novel/procedural into Urban Fantasy. (I told you, I've lost my mind).

    Any literary agents out there?

    Are there any quivering literary agents and/or published authors on this board? I'm an editor/content strategist by trade and have a completed romantic novel I'm in the process of querying. Since I'm a new author I could really use some friendly querying advice and/or recommendations on good women's fiction/romance agents to contact. My day job is in news media (so, you know, all I do is write #fakenews all day), and I'm pretty excited to jump into fiction for a little while.
  5. OK Who is doing NaNoWriMo this year? What are you writing about? Can we all be writing buddies and such? I'm gonna TRY and I hope I can make it! Yes, I did just dredge up a thread from 2012 because I didn't know where to post this, and I figured someone somewhere had already started a thread. previous thread: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4419

    Where Are The Writers?

    Calling all writers! I can't be the only person on FJ that wants to have a fraction of the literary success that J.K. Rowling has. What are you working on? Do you have writers block? Are you published? Let's talk about the worlds and people we create in our minds and put down on paper!
  7. Hi guys, I'm kind of at my wit's end. I'm studying one class at a time and the end is nowhere in sight. I'm physically disabled and have mental health issues that prevent me from working but I don't want to sit here doing nothing with my life. I've always loved to write, and I've always done well academically with all facets of writing so I was thinking maybe I could hone my skills online and maybe see if I can eventually make it into a job on a small scale. It wouldn't have to pay, I'd just like to write somewhere and build up a portfolio with non-paying samples of published work so I c
  8. Yesterday in a discussion here at FJ, I linked to something by Pastor Joe Schimmel. I know I've talked about him before regarding a different movie. Someone at that time suggested a thread. I thought I'd blog about things first. Depending on reactions, I might start a thread. If you enjoy fundie rabbit holes of the angry, judgemental pastor variety - take the rescue ferrets and head on in. I not only listened to this guy - I went back and listened to his podcast history. (Podcast/radio here: http://www.goodfightradio.org/ ) He is very focused on 'gay agendas.' Very focused on sat

    Thank You For Your Suggestion

    So yesterday I saw a meme on Facebook that made me go hmm. It triggered - or rather confirmed a direction for my writing. My writing has been on hold for a while. For many reasons that I'm going to spare you here. Because that is not the point of this entry. Although the start over in the meme is what I'll probably do with the project that won't go away. That I tried to set aside and, yes, is again nagging at me. And when I shared, I did put a line or two about my writing when I shared the post. Some friends hit like. I appreciate that. Then there is that one friend.
  10. So I'm binge watching season 2 (so far) of Blindspot. Yes, I have a TV addiction. No, I'm not going to reform. While watching an episode this morning before my weekly trip to my weight watchers cult meeting an episode dropped in the tidbit that Joss Whedon wrote 'the good parts' of the movie Speed. Say what? Now Speed is a movie I've seen eleventy times. I've used it for 20+ years to study plot structure. And Joss Whedon is not who got the credit (Graham Yost did). So I took to google and found an interview at Huffington Post about this with Whedon. I think I'm going to ha

  12. I asked a question in the Lori Alexander thread about passive voice and got some great responses that really helped me finally understand what that means. @older than allosaurs continued the topic in more depth, but didn't want to derail the Lori thread. I want to hear more so I'm starting this thread

    Can any writers help me out?

    I'm about to submit my first freelance writing piece and I'm 99% done/edited with it. Question is about puns. In one sentence I mention an album title and then in the next sentence I mention a song title (as part of the sentence). Should I put the song title in quotes or just let it slide and see if people notice. (The album is a very popular one and the song is a hit single, so it's nothing obscure).

    One Month Until Camp!

    It's less than a month until Camp Nanowrimo! Held twice a year (April & July). I enjoy camp more than regular Nanowrimo because I can set my own goal and/or work on other things. Due to various circumstances I've done little with my writing since November ended. I have been thinking though. Before I even ended my 2015 pursuit, I had come to the conclusion that November goes much better if I, gasp, prepare. Which means I have to have an idea of what I'm writing a year in advance. So I'm going to use Camp in April & November to do characterization, backstory and maybe a bit
  15. From the ages of about 11-18, I wrote like a demon - plays, short stories, fanfiction, poetry, you name it. It was pretty raw, but looking back, some it was actually good. In college I had less time, but would go through sporadic periods of writing. Last year I was hit by depression and stopped writing entirely, especially since a failed project was very much tied to the problem. Only lately have I been able to start up again, with a couple of articles and a novel in the works. Now, it's like I've totally lost my confidence. Everything I write sounds stupid, and I can't produce more than a cou
  16. LilMissMetaphor


    Write it? Don't write but read? I wrote poetry in high school (very angsty, natch) and university. I dabbled in most of the forms. I wrote a couple of sonnets (which were actually quite good for meter and scansion). I fancied myself Walt Whitman for a while. Favorite poem ever is Ulysses. I'm not much for modern poetry in general though I do love me a good Canadian poet like A.J.M Smith.

    Short stories!

    Since I'm in grad school, I don't have a TON of time for writing fiction, but someone on FJ mentioned that a successful apocalyptic cult story would be interesting. And I wrote a bit as a teaser -- I'm planning on writing more on this topic Here's the start of it: wh.reddit.com/r/nosleep/comments/2sijjk/i_found_an_audio_cassette_nsfw/. It has a trigger warning for implied actions more than explicit descriptions (planned mass suicide/murder, child abuse). Anyone else write the occasional short story?

    I Want to Write a Book

    Lately, I've really found myself wanting to write a book. I've been writing stories since I could write, period. Why am I posting this here? I want to write an urban fantasy book about a recovering fundie from a mega family. The main character has always seen things, but tried her best to keep them to herself. Her parents believe she is possessed, and they have her exorcised. The event is so traumatic that she ends up attempting suicide. Disgusted, her parents kick her out, and she has to fend for herself for the first time. The silver lining? She finds out that she's not possessed

    Critique Groups

    Does anyone else belong to a critique group, or other writing organization? I lead an in-person critique group that meets weekly. We've been meeting for years. It's a nice way to interact with other writers, and get feedback on your work. Friends and family members don't always feel like they can give honest feedback, and they aren't always qualified to give good input. I'm also a member of a local writers' group that holds monthly meetings on a variety of topics. There are talks by authors of various genres, panel discussions, and open reading nights. I only attend tha
  20. Anyone out there willing and able to provide feedback on a short story I'm presenting in class tomorrow (Thursday)? I'm hoping for somebody who doesn't know me (which is why this is here, not Facebook) so they have no preconceptions. Private message me if you're willing.

    Naming Characters

    So writers, how do you name characters? What's important to you? I like taking the top 1000 of a given year in the country it takes place (though, say, US and Canada may be fairly interchangeable). Basically, it needs to be conceivable that a someone living in that time and place might be named that way. However, they also can't be too close to a person I know well. My dad's name is David, so I will never have a character named David - I will just imagine my dad instead of the character. At the same time, the name has to be based on the character I have in mind, who usually comes t

    The FJ Writer's Thread

    Any other writers on this site? Professional, hobby, whatever. I started writing when I was 11. I've previously written plays, short stories and way too much fanfiction. Right now I'm at work on my first original novel, which believe it or not was inspired by that horrid SAHD story about the abortion clinic we read the other day. We'll see how it goes, I'm still figuring out the characters. What are your current projects?
  23. Hey, I am brainstorming a book which takes place in a world where a fundie-like Empire controls most of the world. I have this rather important plot point where a boy in that fundie society meets a non-fundie girl for the first time in his life and...I am stuck on how his reaction is suppose to be. For those wondering their personalities Man=highly intelligent, easy bored, cynical, Woman= intelligent, thoughtful, opinionated, stubborn How do you think it would go?
  24. Yes, after doing many readings and researches of the fundies we talk about here, I would like to share with you my characters that I have written for my stories. I won't show my stories with you yet, I'm still not finished, but I would like to show you characters based on Dougie, the Botkins, Maxwells, Duggars etc. So Enjoy, and tell me what you think? Here are Doug Philips and his family; Filbert Blackwater-a Pastor and Elder of his own Church, he practices Dominion Theology, an advocate for Antifeminism and a lover of Patriarchy. He is a androcentrist (male-centered)
  25. It's TOE the line, not tow the line (unless you have a car or boat behind you that you're planning to move somewhere). Origins are in dispute, but not the actual phrase (and its correct spelling). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toe_the_line I keep seeing "tow the line" in people's responses, and as a writer/editor, I. Can't. Stand. It. Any. Longer. Yes, I have a touch of OCD, thanks for asking! You may now resume your regular snarking...
