If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything. -Mark Twain Simple truth. Lies are hard to keep up with. Although, lying is a fabulous plot twist in novels, TV, and movies.

THE THIRD + DRAFT:

THE FINAL DRAFT:

Never be discouraged by your first draft!

If you work it long enough, it will bend and mold into your hands until it transforms into whatever you wish— don’t give up!

Also: Never compare your first draft to someone else’s final draft!

There’s a ton of revisions, rewriting, and editing that goes on that readers never get to see. Nobody’s first draft comes out looking like their final draft!

My muse(s):

Remington Thornbolt (Forsaken Gunslinger) -@thornbolts

Gregory Thornbolt (Forsaken Sawbones/Barber-Surgeon) @thornbolts​

Cesta Rosewood (Ren’dorei Warlock/Biker) @embersoot​

Do I know your muse(s): yes (mostly Brassy, but I’d be open to more interactions with your other folks!) | no | a little | tell me about your muse

Setting: our verse | my verse | your verse | modern | alternate universe | other

Pre-established relationships? yes | no | depends on the relationship

Possible relationships: friends | classmate | co-worker | roommate | family, real or adopted | dating or blind date | married | friends with benefits | unrequited love | lending a hand | teacher - student | rivals | allies | partner-in-crime | enemies | protector - guarded | business partners | spy - infiltrated | manipulator - manipulated | star-crossed | first meeting | other

I’m in the mood for: fluff | angst | horror | romance | humor | crime | hurt / comfort | action | supernatural | slice of life | crack | dark threads | light threads | any genre | multi-para | shorter para | one-line | any length | plotted threads | unplotted threads | other

Feel free to: message me ooc | message me ic | tell me your ideas | write a starter | answer one of my opens | send a meme | reblog this with your preferences - let’s find common interests!

It’d be an interesting scene, I think, for Remy and Val to come across one another. Bullets and spells would likely fly at first. But Remy’s staying far, far away from Darkshore.

Regardless, I’d be open to write stuff with you on Brassy/Rem or even Brassy/Greg! @the-real-arcanist-val

I know we’re doing a thread with Remy and Ranek, but I’d be open to also involving Gregory and/or Cesta whenever and wherever! Just say when, @ranekvilmas!

Let’s make something happen, @caideyn! Just say when!

People who say they want to plot and/or ship but then have absolutely no ideas on their own so I need to come up with everything make me want to never write with them in any way ever again. Give effort too „idk XD“ isn‘t cute and makes you look uncreative and disrespectful.

Weekly Progress Update Time!

Good Morning Everyone,

Weekly Progress Update time!

This week has been crazy. I mean, totally nuts! Works is crazy with year-end, and with my first book’s release just five days away, there’s been something of a scrambling effect.

On one end, I’ve been trying to finish out my website on Wordpress. There’s still a delay in my domain being released back to me from Weebly. Per my research, once a domain is returned, it can take up to 45 days. I’m right at that 45 day mark and am still not seeing it. So for the time being, I’ll just have to be patient and wait.

On the writing side, I haven’t made too much progress with everything going on. I did start from the beginning again to reinforce what I already have plotted out, and I decided that I should actually try to write the first act of this. I’ve got maybe five good chapters ready to be written, and I think that by writing it it’ll help me figure out where to go from there.

How about you guys? How are your writing projects and life goals going? Feel free to share below!

Tshifty strikes again. You know how we all thought Taylor was calling us her dumb babies at the iHeart Radio Awards for out countdown theory. Wrong, Taylor really meant bless their hearts because we were close but off. The countdown theory was a damn hint.

Remember 5 holes in the fence. Peep the date February 25 emphasis on the 25

Waiting for 4 that never came… Or did it

Look at the date February 27 emphasis on the 27

How convenient that the countdown theory ended after 4 and day 26 was skipped = 4/26 

The Countdown Theory Lives On:

  • 8 Buttons ~ Feb 23
  • 7 Palm Trees ~ Feb 24
  • 6 Steps ~ Feb 24
  • 5 Holes in the Fence ~ Feb 25
  • 4/26 never came, Olivia threw shade the next day,we called ourselves dumb because we are just in another way

Help me plot

Tomorrow we have a plot workshop with a bunch of 11-15 year olds. It’s the same children I play rpg with once a week, and once every second or third month we play live rpg too.


Tomorrow we’ll all meet up and they’ll help plot for next live rpg. I have to options they can make plot around.


  1. A clay monster attack’s the school (I got this one figured out enough for it to actually work).
  2. A plantspirit steals things from the school (a little like a magpie). The spirit is mostly kindhearted but somehow they manage to piss it off. I know have two hurdles to overcome. 1) Why does the spirit steal stuff? and 2) how does it react when angered?

If you have any ideas that might help me, please do share. So far I think the spirit might act like weed or make a thorn bush, but - yeah - all inputs are welcome.

holy shit… the chapter i thought would be really hard just flowed right out of me and i’m already working on the next one and i think…. i think this story is almost done. i think thats gonna be the last chapter for this part (cause yes, i have a sequel already planned)

but yeah… i had 2 different points for ending this story that i wasn’t sure which was better. but I’ve reached a point where it’s obvious what fits better and i can’t believe i’m so close! wowser….

Last summer, my husband’s store for renovated, and they threw out this giant dry erase board. In what I’m sure my family thought as a fit of insanity, I convinced my in-laws to let me borrow their mini van to get it home. I had Novel Plans ™. Then it leaned up against the wall of my bedroom for most of a year, until yesterday. We hung it up, and this morning I cleaned off the old writing.

Time for some plotting!
