New Story

hookLooking for an example of how to hook your reader right from the very beginning? Read the prologue of Elsy’s newest story, Connie. It’s intriguing. Mysterious. Yet somehow relatable. Great job, Elsy.

twisted pencilInk Wolf shared Chapter 3 of Guardians in the Window. Now she’s looking for a twist for Chapter 4. I’m sure she’d appreciate your suggestions, so follow this link and look for her comment about plot twists. Scroll to the end of the comments to find it.

surprising elementsMikaela’s been busy! She’s added to several group projects, including:

two stanzas to the group poem Unicorn

three trials to the Fantasy group project

and… and…

well, she also added quite a fantasy element to the Historical Fiction #2 group project. A bit unexpected. But it also struck me as extremely funny because.. well, because it was so unexpected! You should check it out. Maybe you could add more elements from other genres to this story? I think it’d be fun to mesh all the genres together. Fun to write. Fun to read. Of course, as always, it’s all up to you guys. (But I think you should do it. Really. Please?)

celebrate I Love to Write DayThe 12th Annual I Love to Write Day is still a few days away (November 15) but I can’t think of a better way of celebrating than sharing Neve’s latest addition of The Secret Life of Ninjaz. Neve is obviously having a great time writing this story and I know you’ll have a great time reading it.

There’s a lot of bickering and fighting and hilarious dialogue and imaginative scene changes in this installment. Not only will you find plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, but also scads of hot dogs, a crazy amount of ponies and… are you ready?… plenty of slightly altered Star Wars characters.

Neve’s brain has to be frizzed and her fingers have to be frazzed. Even Neve says “this took ages” to prepare but this time, at least, she had help from her brother, Finley. So. Welcome to the site, Finley, and thanks for helping your sister make us laugh out loud and celebrate I Love to Write Day in one of the absolutely best ways.

 

spider purple webYou’ll find plenty to keep you up at night in Ink Wolf’s latest addition to Guardians in the Window: spiders and wasps; explosions and flammable dust. Thanks for sharing, Ink Wolf. I can’t wait to read what happens next.
