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.

dust bunnyWhat would it be like to have dust bunnies as friends? Or be caught in a storm in the middle of a farm? Or be cornered by a wolf? Find out in Annie Song’s newest story, The Dust Bunnies: The Storm. Awesome job, Annie. I felt like I was right there, experiencing everything that happened, which is exactly what makes a story exciting.

I love your details and descriptions, Annie. Welcome to All Write with Me. I’m glad you found us!

Action, Adventure, Great Characters

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!
