The Shadow of a Winged OneIn the darkness I wander,The Shadow of a Winged One by Starbrite234
For what purpose exactly....
Why it is rather somber,
For these reasons are rather deadly.
Light provides no cover of stealth,
thus it serves no aid for plans made.
It is more of a case of wavering health,
Truth be told...in its presence I might fade.
For thou has no infliction,
of person or otherwise.
It embitters me in addition,
that you move to condemn me with lies.
For the night is mine, and the day your course,
A sinner am I, hidden in the shadow of thine’s tainted force.

interwoven in the arteries of the heart of Frankfurt.
They are as commonplace as the people,
who sit in the cafes alongside the cobblestone roads;
Venturing about talk and gossip,
as the clicks and turns go about,
whilst the sounds of the world around them meld to become music.
Vati said once,
that a century of grandfather clocks lie silent in Römerberg.
Waiting with thin hands until the strike of noon,
to sing a symphony of beautiful metallic sound.
Those where the rare few sentences uttered that day,
that were clean of irritation,
and raw with intelligence and passion.
He also said that similarly,
I was his and Mutti’s cacophony;
a senseless melody of childish whims and loud laughter.
Mutti told us not to run late,
early in the morn of Monday,
as his lips met her proper cheek.
We whisked out the door into the brass and metal city,
as her small hands touched the warmth he had left behind.
It was here there that I like to

“You’ll never be able to escape me, caro mio~ I’ll give you the most beautiful nightmares you’ll ever have."
Inspired from this song
Ice under my heels, I hear it breakin’
Under my heels, I hear it crackin’
Foolish of me to think I had it
Emmanuel, how foolish of me!
To think I had it...
It was the middle of the night and your bed wouldn’t agree with you at all.
You were too hot, you were too cold; you stuck one foot out only to have both arms covered. One part of the bed was way too cool for your liking, another was too warm and your foot wanted a way to have the best of both however it could.
Ugh, school is in five hours, you thought bitterly, squinting hatefully at your ceiling.
You turned your phone screen on again and the light was as intense
Chaptered Prose vs. Stand-Alone ProseOr "When should I do one and not the other?"
Or "What will work for the piece I'm writing?"
"In a standalone you can only say as much as you NEED to say, in a chaptered story you can expand to as much as you WANT to say". (Thanks to TheMaidenInBlack for that!)
Disclaimer: It's actually not that simple, but as a starting point, it works!
Basically, this article will go over the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone piece and a chapter story. I hope this article helps you make the right choice!
Ability to explore the story/setting/characters in-depth.
It's basically a novel or novella if it gets long enough.
Immersive in nature, meaning your reader will be sucked into a fleshed-out world!
Plot. You're able to develop and sustain a longer plot.
There is a wider possibility of events and/or you can create a longer chain of events.

Anybody Can Write a Novel
Chapter 4 “Plot Points” – Section 3 “The First Turning Point”
With Links to Supplementary Material
We have finally arrived to the last part of Act I in your story, when your Protagonist-driven story will really take off. The First Turning point, also called the “Call to Action” or the “Minor Inciting Incident,” can be thought of as a tremor event after the earthquake, (Inciting Incident) that disrupted the balance that was your protagonist's life. Only this time, it will drive your protagonist to specific action.

Mentorship Project, Second LessonHello, my dear mentors and mentees! I hope the first lesson went well for all of you. Thankfully, it was a very basic one so even if you couldn't finish up with it, you're not missing something that will hinder your understanding of the second lesson.

Building Your VocabularySo you want to build your vocabulary? The answers are really simple, I swear, and you can do it! However, before we go in any detail I want to make something clear...
Just because you know those big, fancy words DOESN'T mean you have to or should use them!
Smaller words can be as effective and, sometimes, more effective.
Vocabulary is important, there isn't any doubt about it. Using, or finding, the right word can be key when you're writing. Though we don't always quite know the right word and maybe you never knew it or you just can't quite remember what it was. Either way, you are now determined to fill up that vocabulary!
Large words are fantastic, if used properly. Don't try to impress your reader by throwing out a bunch of obscure, long words. If you must use them do so sparingly. It's just as important to remember that your readers are intelligent and chances are they may know what the word means or they'll use a di

Writing Tips - Description
Description: Balancing Too Much and Not Enough
Theres an old adage about writing that says, show, dont tell. But what does that actually mean? Surely, were not expected to illustrate our stories, are we? Christ, I hope not. Some of mine are rather long.
No. What that means is that you should use your words to paint a visual picture for the reader. Talking heads are both boring and confusing, and should generally be avoided. If youre unfamiliar with the term, talking heads refers to the phenomenon where all, or most of story is carried out through the characters dialogue. You see it like mad in web and news paper comics, but it happens in prose as well.
The first, and arguably the most fun way to banish the talking heads is to make your characters act. This doesnt mean action, necessarily. The character can do any amount of going from place to place or thing to thing, but so what? Hes still not rea
Synonyms, the Thesaurus, and YouEvery now and then, I see one of those lists going round, be it on Tumblr, shared on blogs, or whatever. You know, those lists; the ones that go on for eight miles listing ten synonyms for dozens of common words.
I hate those lists. In the wrong hands, they often do more harm than good. And in the right hands, they‘re just sort of useless.
There's one going around I do rather like, because it points out the idiocy of these lists. At the top, it says, 'instead of whispered, consider…' and lists off a whole bunch of words. One of those words is 'insinuated'. And the very first response to that list? 'Aye lil mama, let me insinuate in ya ear.' Now, that sentence sounds utterly ridiculous, because whisper and insinuate do not mean the same thing. Not even close. But these lists are often rife thesaurus copypasta like this that upon closer inspection make very little sense.
Let's take the word 'got' for a mome
