    @potionspartner - It really depends on the context. The imperius curse does not automatically require a slavery advisory, though the length of time the person is under it for and how you're portraying their experience might push it over into that category.

    The Origin Story Challenge | 11 April 2020

    I'll be a maybe with the origin story of my OF Danielle Hamilton from my stories Sunflowers in December and The Obliviator. They're both set in the Harry Potter universe, but this character is a muggle so the challenge entry will probably be OF.

    Hey! I really enjoyed your review on chapter 3. You definitely summed up where I was going with Ginny's doubts and fears, along with all the rest of the teens. I'm glad it came through. May I re-request for chapter 4? Story and Author Name, including link: After Destiny [M] by CambAngst Warnings and Advisories: Mature; Hate Speech, Consent Issues (Severe), Sexual Content, Slavery, Spoilers, Substance Abuse, Violence Genre: Angst, Drama, Hurt/Comfort Length: novel; currently 230,000 words Ships: Many; primarily Ginny/Harry and Hermione/Ron Summary: Children. Warriors. Heroes. Victims. Survivors. Harry Potter and his friends struggle to move on with their lives after the Second Wizarding War. Areas of Concern: Chapter 4 is a really heavy chapter from Ginny's viewpoint. Lots of things come out. Also, Hermione and Ron start to work out their plan for the summer. I'm really curious as to whether Ginny's reactions seem right and proportionate, as well as what you make of Harry's "plan" for the meeting with McGonagall and the Minister. Current Review Request Count: 2/5 Thank you so much!

    Original Fiction Winter Goals: 2020 Edition

    @RonsGirlFriday The voice to text is part of Google, and it's already on my phone. It's really difficult to wrangle for long speaking, because it still takes about three paragraphs and REPEATS them in text form after doing it the first time. The only solution I've found so far is to hit the little check button at the top to save my progress every two paragraphs or so, which seems to dump the voice to text memory. It's sort of working, but there's a lot of back and forth that I'd rather not do. I don't think it's designed for the lengthy stuff I'm using it for.

    Reading Challenge 2020

    I've had a reading goal of 50 books for the last few years and struggled to hit that lately (I tend to start out pretty well and then fade off at the end of the year), so I've revised my goal to 25 books this year. I got some great books for my birthday/Christmas, so I want to get through most of them. More general reading goals (though without specific numbers, because I don't want to beat myself for not reading certain things if I'm not in the mood for them) include reading some more non-fiction for fun (as opposed to for my MA last year) and reading more diverse books. Read: 1. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman 2. Letter to My Younger Self by Jane Graham (eds) 3. Sunny Side Up: A Story of Kindness and Joy by Susan Calman 4. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie 5. Dumped, Actually by Nick Spalding Currently Reading: 6. History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

    Bullet Journals

    Okay no posting pictures bc my spread is u g l y. But I think I may have found a system that somewhat works better (ie setting goals for myself what I want to accomplish each month, though some are going better than others), but the problem remains in keeping it up to date bc I'm woefully behind. so if anyone has tips for that do let me know but maybe i should use it as an agenda of sorts too bc im so disorganised lately i have to check my schedule app daily to see which location im working at in the first place and i know i have 3 concerts coming up but im lost on the order of where it is so

    Changing from Narrative to Screenplay OF

    Hi, Madi. I just started posting my screenplay Relics, which I wrote a couple of years ago for my Screenwriting classes at the local college, and then I saw your topic! Everything that Joey says in his answer above is good advice. A lot can be implied in a scene heading of a few well-chosen words. "Aurelie enters a spacious kitchen." The reader of the screenplay knows that they are reading the script of a movie, which is a visual medium, so they will envision a suitable kitchen, and even if it is not exactly like the kitchen you envision in your own head, it doesn't matter. Any detail that is crucial, such as a butcher knife on the counter top, will get mentioned. "A butcher knife lies on the countertop." The story, being largely visual, is told in actions as much as in dialogue, so "Denis walks through the field to the barn" evokes a scene in which the reader will supply their own details. "Denis climbs down the ladder into the trench. He walks along the trench to where the skeleton is. He stops." Specifying the necessary non-verbal action provides the (figurative) skeleton of the scene, on which the reader can hang the details, just as we can envision a living dinosaur by seeing its (actual) skeleton. Sound effects can be specified. "Birds are TWEETING in the trees." (Sounds are capitalized for the sake of the sound-effects guy.) You can specify a series of brief, wordless scenes with a connected theme. This is called a MONTAGE. (You will see a couple of examples of that in Relics, especially after I post all the Acts). It can be a series of items (thus producing a kind of description) or a series of actions. In a real screenplay (which Relics is not; it will never be produced), the screenwriter does not specify what people are wearing (the costume designer decides that) or what the characters look like, or what the buildings look like, unless there are definite reasons. For example, in Relics, it was necessary, for the plot of the story, that Denis and Silvestre be tall, blond, and blue-eyed. I took uncharacteristic liberties in describing the archaeologist Tony Newcomb and the interior structure of the chapel with more sentences than necessary, but not by much. It is a fun challenge to figure out ways to convey an idea visually that appeared in your original story verbally. The scriptwriter can become quite inventive. Your science fiction setting might need a bit more specificity in descriptive details, since it will be more alien that the "spacious kitchen" I mentioned above. But try to stick to a minimum of specific weird items, only what's strictly necessary for the plot. A screenplay is a different technique than a novel or short story, but it is fun to get into the swing of it! Hope this helps. Vicki
