Lilith Chapter 6 The alarm kept ringing as a medium, pot belly man wearing a newspaper boy hat pulled a lever shutting it off. The girls prepared for battle with Alchemy having her hand on the handle of her knife that was concealed in her pocket and Lilith clenching her fist tightly to throw the first punch at whoever came their way. He had a white buttoned shirt and gray slacks with dress shoes. He looked at the girls with a stern look.Lilith Chapter 6 by NightBloom-chan
“What’s a fable like you doing here? We don’t serve creatures of the night during daylight.” He stared at Alchemy, squinting at her. “Are you even human?”
“Pish tosh, I’m as much ov’ a human as you… or am I?”
He grunted. “If you want tickets, come back later.” He
Random ThoughtAs I lay down on the soft grass, I look into my reflection and wonder:Random Thought by NightBloom-chan
"If I drown like Ophelia, will I look just as beautiful as her?"
Lilith Chapter 5 Lilith slept all through the night praying that she wouldn't be killed by her former friends. Even if the dream turned bad she would force herself to continue for fear she would wake up before daybreak. Her dreams weren't even helpful.Lilith Chapter 5 by NightBloom-chan
In one dream she was in a river drowning in and Alchemy just stared at the dying girl. She grinned as Lilith’s final breaths were upon her. Kairi then pulled her out when she “died” and used a scalpel on her corpse. It cut her open to reveal a tiny fetus that cried loudly for its dead mother. Lilith’s body turned to ash and the fetus transformed into a toddler. The toddler had short black hair and porcelain, pale skin. It wore a black dress with black Mary Janes. The ashes turned into a much older version of Lilith wearing a more revealing, slim black dress and her hair was also the color of the toddler. She saw Kai

How to Stop Planning and Use What You've GotArticle cowritten by ShadowedAcolyte and neurotype.How to Stop Planning and Use What You've Got by neurotype
We've chosen to present this in bullets. The first few are ways to tell when your planning has gone too far; the rest are how to get past that.
Featured literature was chosen for its ability to present exposition: good pacing, tantalizing hints, etc.
How do I know I've planned too much?
When you can't hold it all in your head.When you can't explain it without a long-winded summary."So you've planned X. How will you reveal X to the reader?" If you can't immediately think of a good idea, it's probably overplanned.
Volume: how much of your story is world-building/backstory?
Properly spaced, you could get up to 10% world into a story without ruining the book (e.g. for an epic fantasy or something else not set in a place readers will immediately recognize). The rest should be happening now.If the setting is much more familiar—like, Everytown, USA, it could easily be 1% backstory.
Tips for Young Writers...with some help from BuffyHello readers!Tips for Young Writers...with some help from Buffy by PinkyMcCoversong
I spend a lot of time talking with young writers about writing. Whether it’s the art of putting a novel together or ways to break into the industry, I get asked a lot of the same questions. So I thought I’d compile a list of tips here for writers getting started at any age. Maybe you’ve heard some of these before, maybe not. Either way, I hope they help you along your path.
1. Show, don’t tell.
Yes, you’ve definitely heard this before. A million times over. But what does it mean? The difference between showing and telling is the difference between sitting in a cafe in Paris sipping a latte and reading a menu online. You want to immerse your reader. If I’m telling, I’m over-describing, maybe even listing scenery. If I’m showing, I’m slipping in details where they fit naturally.
Everything You've Learned About Writing is a LieLiterature Basics WeekEverything You've Learned About Writing is a Lie by PinkyMcCoversong
Okay, so maybe not everything. But there's a lot of stuff that I remember learning in middle and high school that turned out to not actually work for me -- or for pretty much anybody -- as a writer. I'm hoping that if I can lay these lies out for you, we cans turn it around and unlearn some of these bad habits. Because, man, nothing says "noob" like practicing some of these frequently-taught faux pas.
Lie #1: Be super duper descriptive!
Wait, wait, I know what you're thinking. Descriptive language is good, right? You want your reader to know what you're talking about, and to be able to see, smell it, hear it, touch it, taste it the way you do in your head. The problem is that, when it comes to description, a little bit goes a long wa
