    Stressed, causing Writer's Block

    I've been where you are @RDeHwyl. I'm not in that zone right now (I actually have been more productive at writing than ever - getting through four new chapters in the last few days.) But I know it will only be a matter of time before I'm back into a rut. What I've found for myself when I'm...

    You Deserve a Round of Applause

    A quick note on my review (posted now). Giving criticism is easy; anyone can get online and post what they think about anything. Receiving criticism on the other hand is very difficult. Putting something that you created – that you have an emotional attachment to – out there to be poked and...

    Perfect. Send me a link and I'll start tonight. What feedback are you looking for specifically: do you want me to make editorial changes (detailed), review specific parts of the story (dialogue, setting, etc.) or just provide a general overview?

    The Sorting Hat

    Ameripuff. If I was chosen at Ilvermorny, the Pukwudgie would have raised his arrow, but I'm content with the yellow and black badger.

    Drew here - an 'Ameripuff'. I was active writing on this site about 5 years ago, but disappeared when the forums went dark in 2016. Glad to see it back up and running. I started writing after I had read the entire HP series to my daughter. Once I was done, I thought to myself, "Hey self...
