Re: NaNoWriMo is coming!

I'm done. I usually can tough it out, but not this year. I'm thinking of writing a one-page conclusion to kill off my main character and describe what happens to the others, then I'm putting this book to rest. Maybe someday I'll revisit this idea, but not now. I'm just not feeling it any more. If an...

Re: NaNoWriMo is coming!

How is everyone doing now, on day 13? I'm at almost 22,000 words, but it's really turning into a slog now. I've decided to write something more contemporary (instead of sci-fi or fantasy, like I have in the past) and I'm just not feeling it like I have in previous NaNos. I find my characters to be f...

Sounds good, kittycathead!

Re: NaNoWriMo is coming!

I don't see why not! I wrote the second half of a novel for one of my NaNos.

Re: NaNoWriMo is coming!

Sent you a buddy invite. :) I typically go in with a rough idea about what I want to write about, as well as a few scenes in my head. A good portion of my writing consists of connecting the scenes. I find it helpful to ask "and then what happened?" after writing a particular scene - it helps to get ...

NaNoWriMo is coming!

I'm seriously considering participating in National Novel Writing Month this year! It's been three years since I've participated - a chaotic, confusing three years, with many life changes. But I'm going to give it a shot! Now I just need to decide what I'm going to write about.... I know a coupe peo...

D&D is good for your brain!

I found an interesting article about how Dungeons and Dragons has helped students perform better at school - both socially and academically. Some of the teachers have called it a "multidisciplinary study." You can read the article here, if you'd like.

Game on!

Re: Since it came up recently...

You probably already know my thoughts in general. ;) But I thought it was interesting that one of the deciding factors of the CCC was their interpretation of the Trinity. I'm sure the LDS church isn't unique in its interpretation that Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are three separ...

The dangers of renouncing your faith

I just read an article about John L. Cooper, lead singer of the Christian rock band Skillet, and his reaction to a couple of Christian pastors who have recently renounced their faith. You can read the article here , if you'd like. A couple of quotes really stood out to me. We now have a church cultu...

Re: Religions I Personally Cannot Believe In and Why (And Why I Do Believe In Christ)

It's not a problem to me if you have issues with the LDS doctrine. What I had a problem with was you determining (based upon your own conclusions, rather than any prompting from the Holy Spirit) that the LDS church is not a Christian church. Trust me that it is very much a Christian organization, ba...
