Calling All Fans of Brian Jacques and the Redwall Series

 

brian-jacquesThey say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It’s also the best way to try on different writing styles. That’s exactly what Inkwolf has done in her latest short story, A Woodlander’s Lunch.

This is a perfect tribute to one of Inkwolf’s favorite authors, Brian Jacques.

Nice job, Inkwolf. I’m certain Brian Jacques would be flattered by this story that mirrors his highly descriptive style.

A Major Revision and a New Writer

thumbs up winkMikaela has done an awesome, awesome job of revising the first four chapters of her story, The Magic Sword of Trestia. Excellent job, Mikaela. I can’t wait to read the rest! By the way, I replaced the first version of this story with this new revision but I didn’t remove any of the comments. This is kind of confusing (since some of these comments no longer apply) but I didn’t want to remove the comments because they might still be helpful to Mikeala.

I’d also like to welcome our newest writers, Wilson and Georgia. Wilson and Georgia have used a random word generator to help them create This Story. (Wilson and Georgia, please supply the title for this story so I can give it its proper name.) Random word generators are a great way to get your ideas flowing. Here’s a link to the one these writers used if you’d like to give it a try: http://writingexercises.co.uk/take-three-nouns.php.

Fantasy Group Project Alive and Well

teamworkMikaela has answered Annie Song’s plea to save the Fantasy Group Project with a time guard mouse. I can’t help but wonder what will happen next! Thanks, Mikaela. I was missing this story, too.

Two Awesome Stories

Two talented writers are back on the site, sharing two powerful stories.

In The Spark Diaries, Mikaela shares a complex world of her creation through several characters’ diaries. Her excellent use of dialogue not only shows us how this world operates but also how each character feels about it. In just a few short segments, the beginning of The Spark Diaries imparts lots of interesting information in a dynamic, captivating way.

Annie Song also uses different characters and snappy dialogue to share information and ramp up the action in The Dust Bunnies 7 – The Real Enemy. In this story, the team grows from an unexpected source after the real enemy is revealed.

I’m certain you’ll enjoy both stories, so go read them now and remember to comment.
