Hello world! Peppermint Princess here and at your service *hat flourish*! Ironically I actually don't like peppermint, but I am a princess. In a way.
So who is Peppermint Princess? She's pleonastic, persistent, perspicacious, positive, a fan of the colour purple, and in no way a perfect princess. Also, the letter 'p' has begun to look weird to her.

------------------------------------

Princess Peppermint paced the platform impatiently, pining for the Prince Pleonastic who promised to play Pac-Man with the Princess promptly after practicing a piece on the piano. Peppermint herself couldn't perform, as she would always pound on the piano and pass up any possibilities of playing pianissimo.

    So you've switched over to another story for NaNo (ZA?) - are you going to pick this one up again in the future?

    I might do. I need to do a lot more world building before I jump back into it though. That was why I was struggling to write it. It needs more thought and attention than I can give it right now!

    mumbled "Writing Piece/First Mumble"

    Hello everyone! Peppermint Princess here with her first ever Movellas mumble. @[Sanguine] and I decided to do a little creative writing exercise instead of any schoolwork over a study period, and here is my (unedited) piece from that. (Personally, I think Sanguine's piece is much better than my own) Obviously since it is unedited, I would love some constructive criticism.

    -----------------------------------

    The girl skipped gaily along the muddy road, taking no mind of the downpour around her. Bouncing around her thighs, the pink polka dot dress pirouetted at every step like an unusually large slug. A fat, wet slug. Alongside it swung an upside down umbrella, the bananas of its yellow print cover turned up in huge grins. How odd they found it to not be open in such weather. If they were to be taken out of the house, would it not make sense for them to be properly used? Unfortunately for them, the bananas would not be raised towards the sky on that particular day. Maybe it was because the girl hated the concept of being dry.

    The girl’s polka dot slug dress cheerfully slurped at each step, absorbing more and more liquid in the downpour. Soon, it thought, it would be big enough. Big enough to consume the little girl who wore it like the lining of a skirt, and then overthrow the world of the pathetic meat-bags and label itself the Slug King. Soon-to-be Slug King was also contemplating where it had heard the number 42. It seemed like an important and universal question that needed answering, but the slug couldn’t for the life of it decide where before it had heard the number.
    Wait, it thought. This is unimportant. Focus on the world domination.

    The girl, meanwhile, was having an intense and spiritual connection with a puddle. Intense and spiritual meaning she was standing in a giant puddle in the middle of the sidewalk. And it was this puddle lapping against her already sopping wet body that finally had her begin to cry. Loudly.

    The slug decided that this was the moment it had been waiting for, that it was now large and fat enough to begin its master plan. Preparing itself, it attempted to leap from the irritatingly loud host child and into a life of luxury and dominating rule. But the slug, which was still just the hemline of the sopping girl’s polka dot dress, only got about three centimetres before creating a large rip in the fabric, promptly killing the imaginative and unreal slug and causing the girl to cry even louder in the pouring rain.

    Your poems are beautiful, and this is no exception. I love the metaphors you used!

    I only have one constructive criticism comment, and before I say it I want you to know your poem is awesome and this is serious nit-picking - the dash at the end of your third stanza feels a little out of place. Would it be better to change it into a semicolon so it matches the rest of the poem?

    When I was first reading it I wasn't very optimistic, but by the end (or should I say beginning)... wow. Very well done
