    World Spooktacular | October 7th, 2018

    In Japan, ghost stories tend to be told in the summer and Spirits of ancestors are believed to return once a year in the middle of Agust, sadly August 15 is also the anniversary of the end of World War II. This holiday is called Obon (お盆) which is similar to Irish original Halloween concept: we welcome the Spirits of ancestors from August 13-15 instead of October 31. Ghosts are often thought as the spirits who haven't been allowed to go on to the afterlife. Sometims they haunt the physical world. To protect yourself from these ghosts, Shinto writings containing the name of a god is effective. When I was a kid, feeling scary, I used to chant Buddhist sutra instead of praying for a god.

    Do you ever have that moment of deep profound sadness when you truly take in the fact that Sirius spent 12 freaking years in Azkaban with only thoughts of how his best friend was dead? Like sometimes that level of sadness scares me. #nowords

    Alternative Words for said

    Rumpelstiltskin posted an awesome and helpful guide to dialogue tags and how to use them here+ I know that many authors already know and use interesting words to express communication. However I find that sometimes it’s helpful to see some options instead of using said when using dialogue tags. This+ article post is one I’ve used a lot in my own writing as a helpful tool. I thought however, that I could try my hand at breaking it down by mood/situation for everyone’s reference. Of course many of these can be used across categories, but I’ve posted them in the context I would most use them. Feel free to post below if I’ve missed things, the more the merrier.

    Got questions about NaNo? Send a Prefect a PM with your question(s) and it just might get answered in our NaNo-themed blog post next month! (Please send us things, we're itching to help everyone have a successful, stress-free NaNoWriMo!)

    First two chapters of my coffee shop/mutual pining are up! Hopefully won't take too long to finish it off. A Latte Love [M] Thank you for inspiring me! It has been so long since I've written anything this has been delightful.

    Home Again!

    I can not describe exactly how I feel right now. It’s too much. After MONTHS of waiting and worrying and wondering, I know for a fact when I will see my children again. I know that they will be coming home with me. To stay. I understand that this is a temporary matter, and there’s a chance (albeit a small one) that it will not be permanent. I have been a mother for 7 years. I have two children. The younger is 16 months old, and I have missed 5 of those months. I will never get them back. The loss of identity you feel when you e built your whole adult life for your children, only to have them wrongly taken from you is something I can’t justify with the English language. Maybe if I knew every language I would have the words. I am whole again gain with this ruling. I will be even more fullfilled when their sleepy heads are resting peacefully in their rooms. Thank you thank yoh thank you to to everyone who was able to help me with the fundraiser. I wouldn’t be in the position I am without generous souls like you. This is probably a big mess because I’m on my phone and going really fast, but this is the only community I have to celebrate with and I just wanted to tell everyone THE BOYS ARE COMING HOME!!!!!!! Side note- I didn’t even know I had won after the judge gave his ruling. Lawyer speak is so confusing. Lol. My lawyer had to give me the thumbs up before I knew what was going on.

    Hey I changed something in the chapter summary for chapter 3 in I'm not a hero. It's been in the queue, but now it says that there are no stories in the queue. In my manage stories, under validated, chapter 3 has a No. Does that mean it got rejected or is there a hiccup?
  27. PaulaTheProkaryote



    Also me: I will never finish writing these last few paragraphs to finish this one shot.

      That's me in a nutshell, all these great ideas bounce around my head but never fully get on the page.

    3. PaulaTheProkaryote


      The prefects have promised me that they are brainstorming some kind of solution plan for us in their survival guide for us this year! Stay tuned and maybe they'll solve all of our problems! 😜
