In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, let’s dive in and write a love story! Write how you met your significant other, or how you dream of meeting them. You could also write a romantic scene with a couple. It could be a romantic date or just one doing something sweet for someone else. What is your idea of a romantic day with your love? Have fun and make it elaborate! I can’t wait to hear about it!!
Your characters may have powers, so this month’s theme is… If you could have one power, what power would you have and why? Would you want the ability to fly, invisibility, the ability to read minds, or something a bit different like the ability to call shadow or light? Give us your thoughts and tell us one power you wish you had!
December is the time of hear we are celebrating with family and friends, but the end is when we are thinking of the next year and the goals/resolutions we want to accomplish during that time. For this months theme, we are going to write about our characters and what their goals are throughout their journey. So, what goals are your character’s trying to accomplish throughout the journey you have created for them?
November is the beginning of the Christmas/Holiday season. Everyone is getting ready for the holidays, trying to stay warm and giving thanks. This month I thought we might write about traditions. What traditions do you have? Have you had to combine traditions when entering into a new relationship? What do you love about your traditions?
Here is mine: Every year on Thanksgiving after everyone had eaten their fill, we sit in our living room, put on Christmas music, drink hot chocolate (coca-cola from glass bottles – that’s my husband’s tradition) and put up our tree. Thanksgiving morning (and Christmas morning) I make banana bread and pumpkin bread for breakfast and we have family over. If we know we won’t see them we will exchange gifts then, otherwise we will wait until everyone is together again for Christmas.
Christmas is another story… We have four Christmas celebrations to attend every year due to the combined families. We have one with my parents on Christmas Eve, one with my husband’s family on Christmas day, One with all of my sisters on whichever day we can plan all of us to meet and another for my extended family. Do you have multiple Christmas/Holiday celebrations? How many do you have?
Even though the season seems like a big jumble of activity, we love nearly every bit of it. Seeing our families and the joy of being together warms our hearts. Tell me about your traditions, I would love to hear about them!
In lue of Halloween, I’ve decided to get into the spirit and see what scary stories you enjoy around this time. I personally don’t favor the frightening and things that go bump in the night, but I’m interested in stories and you never know what will inspire… So for this month’s writing fun: give your favorite scary story. Title and short description!
Ready? This month’s theme is… what inspires you? In any aspect of our lives, there are things all around us that inspire us to accomplish our goals and to keep moving forward with our dreams. What is/are yours?
Give us your characters description. Their likes and dislikes. What do they do in their free time? What do their daily lives look like? Interview one of your characters and share it here for this month’s theme!

In a story that I am revising and editing right now, my main character is told she will loose all memory of her mate and vice versa. Since she is a private investigator they also give her the task of finding a missing child. Her goal to reunite with her mate and find the missing child.
Some things that she tries are performing the bond with her mate. When the bond takes hold she will know she has a mate to find. Searching for clues (since she is given a case file) to the missing child may possibly lead to her unknown mate.
Another conflict: Everyone around her will forget her relationship with her mate so they will be of no help to her. With limited time lift before losing their memories her and her father work to find a way to let her know to find her mate after the bond had taken place. The only thing is branding her own skin with a few words.
So, what conflicts can you create for you character and what are some of the solutions they try to overcome the conflicts?
Is your favorite setting from a book you’ve read or is it a place you’ve visited or would like to visit? What is special about it that caused you to favor it as you do? Is it a place you hope to visit someday or have visited? One of my favorite settings are the ones shown in LOTR. I love rolling hills, prairies, and space to roam. I have yet to visit, but it is definitely on my list! So, what is your favorite setting? Why is it your favorite setting? Go on… Let us know! We may add it to our list of places to visit or use our imagination to envision such a place!
What habits, likes, dislikes, personality traits, etc have you strategically placed in one of your novels, short stories, etc? Me, personally, I have created a character with red hair, who loves hot chocolate (or dark chocolate in general) and has some of my habits such as stretching my fingers and the ability to move my ears and my nose. How about you? What characteristics do your characters share with you?
