  1. Since I've turned my attention from Sci-Fi to Fantasy with my binging of Game of Thrones, I just had an idea in my head.

     

    Has anyone ever done a Historical Science Fantasy story involving historical figures, aliens with seemingly magical technology and unknown motives, and political intrigue?

     

    If I do end up writing the story, I'd call it "The Once and Future Prince"

      Like the movie John Carter, but deeper? Sounds interesting.  :)

  2. Yes! Yes! Boston Bruins just beat Toronto Maple Leafs, knocking out the last Canadian Hockey team this year in the playoffs.

     

    What makes this amazing is...guess who was in attendance rooting for Toronto in Boston today:

  3. Anyone else into Game of Thrones?

      Not even. Too violent for my taste.   :unsure:

      Well, it's not all violence: there's plots, drama, and empowering moments.

       

      There's gay/bi/trans characters, who you can root for, too. 

  4. Still no answers on seeking an editor for Essence of Life

    I'll just keep asking, because I love this story and want it to have a proper edit before I post it.

     

    I also want to give thanks @Page Scrawler for beta reading for me on this story.

      You're welcome, WL.  :hug:

  5. My Novel: Essence of Life is complete

     

    51,240 words, 17 chapters, all within 1 Month

     

    I just need an editor to help me proofread and edit

  6. Awe! The Feels, now I want to watch this movie, haven't seen a Pokemon movie since 4ever (literally that was the name), but saw this clip on youtube:

     

     

  7. Westlife is on my mind:

    Chapter 9 - Pepper

    Awe, shoot, I forgot to do my final comment as well like @ColumbusGuy It was pleasure working with you Nick, the story turned out real well and the chracters were fun to read. Pepper is an adorable dog, and I like how you portrayed the relationship of a dog and its family. People assume that it's just the pet owner, who adopts the dog, but it's also true that the dog adopts its humans.
  9. I am still looking for an Editor and Beta Reader for my Dining-themed story.

      Six chapters?!  :blink: Ummm, sure. I don't have any shifts to cover until Monday, so I guess I can read it.  :gikkle:

      @Page Scrawler I have 12 chapters right now with 35K words, I didn't want to scare you :P

       

      Seriously, I can give it to you 1 chapter at time to make it easier to read :)

      Let's go for it!  :D

  10. Cool, I'm just playing around with the Zortrax M200 at work, they're Polish 3D Printer company. It's a little older now, but still usable
  11. Happy Belated pi Day @Drew Espinosa

  12. I'll soon be posting a request for a Beta Reader and Editor this weekend.

     

    My Novel/Novella is at its halfway mark, 8 chapters and 20K+ words. I wrote it in 2 weeks, which I am really surprised by.

     

    Again, this new story wouldn't have been possible if @Nick Brady didn't inspire me to write a Modern fiction story from my own life experiences. In Working with Nick on Love is Blind, I rediscovered my own love of writing, not just for the pure thought provoking stories, but the stories we can find as well in everyday life.

  13. Didn't know there were Omega werewolves sex slave boys, but I wonder if the author could actually make it work, similar to the concept of Orion girls from Star Trek. Basically from Alpha Canon and Beta Canon, outwardly their world seems like it's dominated by powerful strong masculine brutes with henchmen in traditional setting and poor defenseless sex slaves. However, in reality, the entire society is actually dominated by these sex slaves, who use their seductive abilities to manipulate the strongest males in their society and are the true oligarchs. @Thorn Wilde If I ever had to write Werewolf fanfic, I'd probably clean that up this way, much more fun than just natural sex slaves and makes these character far more scary. In terms of tropes, I hate: -The hero develops a skill that you never knew he had until the end to save the day, I've seen this in a few HP fanfics. It's a contrivance and the worst kind of Deus ex Machina. -More recently in stories, love polygons with the advent of mainstream LGBT characters. Look you don't need to have characters fighting over one another in order to make it entertaining, if the story devolves into that, then you're just doing a day time talk show. I mean does this sound any good: My best friend is in love with me, his brother is in love with me, I am in love with their cousin, their cousin is in love with my best friend, and my sister is in love with his brother. If you want love triangles fine, but don't make everyone involved in one. -The hostage being your boyfriend/girlfriend situation trope, this one has been around for a long time. I get it, this adds tension to the story to have your lover in jeopardy, but it becomes less interesting if you keep doing it over and over again. A notable example, The Walking Dead made that mistake with several key characters, then when they do die, it is less impactful than it should be, because the writers didn't respect their characters.
  14. Wonderful chapter Nick, sweet and loving
