New Poem and New Revision

In her latest poem, Friendship Garden, Mikaela brings together two of my favorite things: friends and flowers. Perfect for spring. Perfect any time.

She’s also submitted the first chapter of her latest revision of The Magic Sword of Trestia. I’m truly impressed by the journey this story has taken and the time, dedication and talent that Mikaela has put into it.

I have removed the earlier version of this story so older links to it may no longer make sense. I apologize for any confusion this may cause but I know you’re going to love this latest revision. Excellent job, Mikaela!

Revised and Expanded

 I loved the beginning of Mikaela’s story, God is Now Hereauthor at work, and couldn’t wait for her to write more. Now that she has, I’m happy to share it here. Mikaela has done an excellent job of showing us her characters through their actions and dialogue. She’s revised Chapter One and made it even stronger. She’s continued the story with strong details, descriptions and dialogue. Her main character’s motivation to change is realistic and told well. This is a truly inspirational story. Well done, Mikaela!

New Continuing Story

planetMikaela starts her newest story, Awesome World of Randomness, saying she let her imagination run wild on this one. And run wild it did. Loaded with creativity, interesting characters and plenty of action, I highly recommend you follow the link for laugh-out-loud fun. Thanks for sharing, Mikaela!

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.
