    Movellas Anniversary

    So, this is the anniversary of me joining Movellas; I didn't really think about doing anything for it, but I've noticed recently that people have posted mumbles and things, so I thought I'd do the same. So, umm, this is me, and I've been on this site for one year today, and I'm really happy to be here. I don't particularly want to gush, or make a big fuss out of it all, or make it seem like a bigger deal than it actually is, but there have been a lot of people who've made the year happy (if you're reading this, then you've probably paid some part in it). This site is amazing, and I suppose the fandom stuff has died down a little over the year-there is still room for improvement, but we've come a long way. The really long forum threads and the competitions and the conversations and the feedback and the people... It's all been really good, and I've really enjoyed it all. Thank you everyone, and I hope I'll be here for more years to come :-)

    If you could try chasing up Sakuras entry, that would be awesome. Whack you decision up in the mentor group, if that's cool with you.

    Actually, with school work and other things, I'm worried I won't be able to carry on with the competition-I was a bit worried of this for a while, and it's all getting pretty hectic at the moment, so I think I'm going to have to leave the competition for now. Sorry :-(

    No worries, good luck with school and stuff.

    National Novel Writing Month

    Well, this year I convinced myself I was doing NaNoWriMo, but it's only a few days away and I have no idea what I'm doing. I've been playing with a few ideas recently, and have written a few pages of one or two, but they all either sound too pretentious/boring or too rubbish/boring, and I don't want to rush something out which I'm just going to discard later on; so, no NaNoWriMo for me this year. I'd rather take my time to think properly, and then maybe in the new year start something properly, and write a proper novel that I can be proud of. (I'm also pretty lazy, and I probably couldn't physically write 50,000 words in one month if my life depended on it: but maybe if I practice, next year I'll be able to actually do it, if I promise myself I will.)

    You should go for it, even if you think its going to go not so great. Last year I did Nanowrimo and wrote a book called Sky. However I haven't even read the whole thing through myself, and I have written a new book that has nothing to do with it. I was even planning to do a sequel to Sky during nanowrimo this year, but instead I'm doing it for another book that I wrote. I would say just have a go, even if your idea isn't great. You could also probably find ideas on the forums. It is up to you though, and I would suggest making sure you do have time to do it.

    Hmm... I guess that's true. Well, at least I have some days to think about it :-)
    Lelacool
    yep :) If you're stuck, try writing a blurb or synopsis and working from that. I do tend to write a blurb type thing first, and have an idea of the very beginning and end. Usually that's about it though. This time I know the end for definite, and really that's it and I only have ideas for the rest of it! :)

    A Calendar for Books

    Does anyone else think of books as seasonal things? That is, I read anytime of the year, but there’s something about certain books that makes me think they’d be better enjoyed in winter/summer/spring/autumn. For example, I started reading ‘Jane Eyre’ last night and really enjoyed the bit I read but had decided not to read anymore-I wanted to save it for when it was dark outside and it was bit more wintery-ish. Same for ‘Wuthering Heights’. I’d been saving ‘The Lord of the Rings’ for around January, which I stuck to, and ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ seemed like the kind of thing to read in the summertime (Get me, with all the classics) Now, I don’t know what to read; I have loads on my bookshelf that I think I’d enjoy, but they’ve all been mentally reserved for a more appropriate time of the year (yes, I realise it’s sort of strange.) Anymore recommendations for books to fit this time of year? And does anyone else sort their books by season as well?

    I totally agree! 'Sweetly' by Jackson Pierce is an autumn/winter book, but 'Secrets of the Henna Girl' is summer. :) Sorry if you haven't read those books. Actually, if you haven't then 'Sweetly' can be my recommendation. ;)

    Ah, thank you! 'Sweetly' is going on my reading list now :-)

    The Story of Blodeuwedd


    So, as most of you can probably gather, I come from Wales-the land of constant rain and sheep. As I was doing some homework earlier, I decided to look deeper into some of the mythology that comes from and surrounds my country, a lot of which were really very interesting. Faeries; phantoms; kings and queens; mythical realms… and one of my favourites for a while has been the story of the goddess Blodeuwedd. Once upon a time, a young Welsh hero was cursed by his mother so that he could never have a human wife; bereaved by this news, two magicians decided to counteract the curse, by making him a wife out of flowers.
    The hero and the flower woman were happy together for a while, until he went away on business, during which time she took another man as her lover. The two conspired to murder the hero, and Blodeuwedd persuaded him to tell her how it would be possible for him to be killed; with this knowledge, she went about making the arrangements for the death of her husband. When the plans proved unsuccessful, the jilted hero captured his wife’s lover and killed him with a spear. His wife, Blodeuwedd, the flower woman, was captured and turned into an owl. Occasionally, owls are still referred to by this name from time to time.
    I don’t know if any of you find this kind of thing interesting, so I’m sorry, but it made me think a bit, which is always good…

    Wow! there are people on here who write things other than 1D and jb!!!! I love whales and their mythology! I think some of the stories are also celtic right?
    B. Anonymous
    Yep, there are non-fanfiction writers on the site, though sometimes it doesn't seem like there are as many of us. I love Wales too (being Welsh!) and find our mythology very interesting, so I'm glad you enjoy them too :-) Yes, some of the stories are Celtic but I don't really know that much about mythology generally, sadly.
    agent_Romanov
    I'll admit I write a bit of fiction myself, I just haven't posted my nonfictions yet. And I'm glad I found others who write nonfiction. And I thought some were Celtic (I'm irish so some myths might be famillar) thanks I think we could get along just fine :)

    Nothing wrong with fan fiction, mind :-) I'm glad you think so.

    The Writer's Block Dilemma

    At the moment, with the holidays coming to an end and school looming, I'm finding that I'd like to start a new project to occupy myself, possibly something longer than my usual stories, maybe even novel length if I can persevere through it. And I have a few ideas in theory, but these ideas are useless when I try to commit them to paper; it just seems slightly writer's blocky. But when can you define something as writer's block? I have the ideas, but they don't work in real life-whereas writer's block is usually attributed to when you have no ideas at all. When is writer's block writer's block? And when is it not? Any advice on what to do? There're some ideas swimming around (historical fiction about Mary Queen of Scots comes to mind often) but maybe I ought to find a brand new story, with brand new characters and a brand new setting. Hmm...

    Sadly not, but I live in Cardiff so there's one fairly nearby. Your literature teacher sounds good :-)
