penguin-with-booksAre you looking for some fantasy? Magic? Mystery? Great characters and exciting situations? I hope so because you’ve just found it, all right here and all thanks to Elsy, who’s apparently just as busy writing as Neve. Impressive and inspiring. I’m so glad you’ve all found the site and continue to share your writing and imaginations here.

So let’s get to it. Here’s some brief descriptions and the links to Elsy’s latest submissions:

In Chapter 7 of St. Charles Academy, the girls get their dorm assignments. Click the link to find out why Savannah is not happy about hers.

Read Chapter 9 of Marked Five and meet the new character who might change everything.

Then check out Elsy’s newest story, K.M.A., to see how she sets up an interesting, surprising situation in just a few words of dialogue and a great ending line that’s guaranteed to make you want more.

kid at computer cuteThis clip art is what I imagine Neve looks like when she’s writing – I have no idea what she really looks like but I’m betting she attacks her computer like this. She’s been busy!

If you love/need/have to write, chances are you have characters talking in your head all the time. I think most writers do. Today, Neve has shared several characters that fill her mind and you’ll be glad she did. Because they’re hilarious. For a good time and a good laugh, check out The Secret Life of Ninjaz. And please, do Neve and me a favor by leaving a comment. I love the way she’s telling this story and I’d love to know what you think. I’m sure Neve would love to know, too. She’d also like you to answer a poll on which character you like best. Follow the link and you’ll find the poll.

If you’re in the mood for something scary, check out The Hellcreature, also submitted by Neve. It amazes me that Neve submitted such completely different stories with completely different tones on the same day. The Ninjaz will make you laugh; the Hellcreature will make you shiver. That’s the power of words, y’all!

And if that isn’t enough, Neve also added to the Humor Group Project by answering what IT is.

Thanks, Neve, for giving us so many great things to read today!

It’s been awhile…

purplepheonixPurplepheonix, one of the very first to share his stories on All Write with Me, showed up yesterday to continue the first Adventure story in Group Projects.

Welcome back, Purplepheonix. I’m happy to see/read you here.

Add to the Adventure

TeamworkAnonymous started a new adventure under Group Projects~Stories. Click on Adventure #3, read the beginning, then decide what happens next. Remember, anyone can continue group projects stories. I think it should be you.

Elsy cranks up the trouble and mystery in two of her ongoing stories.

In Chapter 8 of Marked Five, we learn why being one of the chosen isn’t necessarily a good thing.

In the next installment of Now What? the ghost who’s been stuck haunting Kia’s room has found an unexpected way out.

suggestion_box2For the writing contest, Elsy suggested adding a requirement for the entries. For example, all entries could have the same theme or start with the same sentence or include the same character. I think this is a great idea. Let me know what you think.

kid writing & computerLots of great writing to share today!

First up, Elsy shares Chapter 4 of Marcia. This story is an excellent example of using Voice. Voice comes from the words and tone and style you choose for your story. It also includes the details, descriptions, actions, and emotions you choose to share. Make these choices based on how your narrator tells the story and your readers get to know your narrator. In Marcia, Elsy does a great job of letting her narrator’s attitude come shining through. This is the opening sentence of Chapter 4: “It was… breathtaking? Awesome? Enchanting? I could go on for hours, but I won’t because there is slightly more to say here.” Actually, there’s a lot more to say here and you should go read it.

Next up, Ink Wolf wrote Chapter 2 of Misty Island. I love Ink Wolf’s wild imagination and I know you will, too. Ink Wolf comes up with the most incredible characters in this story and shares just the right amount of imaginative details to make them unique, interesting, and fun. Ink Wolf is also very good at showing characters’ personalities through the way they talk.

And last but not least, Ink Wolf shares Hunter’s Adventure. This is a complete short story with action and adventure, told through the eyes of a kitten.

Enjoy!

welcome_green_1Please help me welcome our newest writer, Bunnie, by reading and commenting on her story, The Wind. I’m so glad you found us, Bunnie. I love your story and can’t wait to find out what happens next.
