      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

      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!)

      Wow it's been a while since I updated this but it's nearly NaNo which means I need to get my writerish ducks in a row and sort out what I'm doing! Yaxley: Chapter Eleven is now up on the archive! Recently I did some reorganising so instead of trying to pack way to much into one long novel I'm going to be splitting the story in two, we will have one 25 chapter long novel (Yaxley) set in the Marauder's seventh year and a sequel set over the last few months of the First Wizarding War. This has made it about a billion times easier to plan so hopefully it works out!  Other things: I've got a finished one shot about Regulus and a muggle born called Kelly that's set in the Yaxley Universe. It's ready and waiting to go out as soon as I reach that bit of the story. My short story Amie Bell is still in the works but on the back burner at the moment (I will come back to it soon!) because I might have sortof started a new novel... Whoops!  Revival! You can find it +Here! (M) My first venture into NextGen!! It's a romance that follows Rona McKenna (My OC) as she navigates seventh year while dealing with the pressure of having a famous politician for a mother and being the newly dumped Ex-Girlfriend of James Sirius Potter. There's drama, politics, Rita Skeeter and a good helping of romance all chucked in. I've got a lot in store for her and some themes and plots that I've been drying to explore for a while.  It's looking to be somewhere between 25 and 30 chapters, chapter two is in the queue at the moment!  Anyway here's a picspam, in case you were interested, and thank you for coming to my Ted Talk 😋

      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.     Surprise/Recollection Exclaimed Cried (also could be used for sadness) Remembered Exaggerated Proclaimed Announced Recalled Revealed Spluttered declared reflected Stuttered Pronounced  Reminisced blustered Anger/Irritation/Demanding Murmured Muttered Screamed Shouted Yelled Barked Ordered Insisted Lectured Mimicked Objected sneered snarled hollered snapped argued scolded simpered snobbed shrieked sighed grumbled rumbled mumbled told informed Howled Threatened Tormented Disagreed Faulted Blamed Hissed grunted warned commened gripe demanded blasted bit chewed roasted growled hounded grimaced spelled out challenged  implied insinuated Countered Countermanded Deliberated Communicated Negated Abnegated Intonated Cussed Cursed Spat Swore Rattled on Harped on Huffed Nagged Shouted down Cheerfulness/agreeable Laughed encouraged giggled cackled squealed prattled teased boasted chatted  chuckled gloated joked assented Egged-on  Chirped Chirruped Questioning Queried offered implored persisted pestered pleaded pondered proposed begged repeated wondered asked thought coaxed urged concluded decided inquired hinted tempted prodded assessed wished Afraid/Upset/nervous whimpered whispered cowered fretted sobbed prayed apologized stammered tattled wept bawled mourned squeaked Complaining Whined Complained Protested Groaned Moaned Sulked Wailed Gasped lamented Normal/various Uses Replied Answered Interrupted Observed Lied Added Advised Agreed Allowed Began started Remarked Responded Promised Breathed Spoke Called Denied Finished Sang Wooed Assured Delivered Flirted Went on Confessed Continued Related hesitated Funny/unusual (Interesting uses) rasped uttered blurted gurgled chanted drawled wheezed yawned tempted googled oogled burble whhdled grizzled twittered slurred toasted dribbled warbled elocuted oozed Bandied Riposted  Caterwauled Bleated Dripped Mewed Nattered on Blathered
