About This Club

A place for writers to gather and talk about the business and craft.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. I'm excited for these, and the stickers! *mosey's over to see what to write*
  3. The January prompts are finally up and running over on the writers blog. I am woefully late, but also very excited about this month. We had a fun idea to hope help motivate everyone to participate. I am creating a DM Writers Sticker/Vinyl. Everyone who wants a shot to win it can submit their entries in all the typical ways. We will pick one winner and I will send them the Sticker/Vinyl for free. We may do the more than once, but we just thought it would be a fun incentive. Since I was a few days late getting us going get the prompts submitted by Feb. 6th.
  4. Any member of Dragonmount is welcome to partake and does not need to be a member of the Club. Completed Prompts gain you points, and those points gain you shiny badges and possibly Club-Only Titles. Full information on the point system available HERE Submitting of writing may be done in the comments or in our Discussion forum.

  5. Eeeesh..dont like complications poor wifey! Lovely!!!! You really caught my essence💖👏
  6. 🤗 Thanks Lava Wish I could lend you some energy! Wife is better now, with complications. As far as poems, I love poems! Its a very open process. Not helpful, but in a way, its important to know that poems are just writings that make the reader feel and think something. There is no correct form or punctuation, which is why I love poems. You just write what you feel...say for instance, your lack of energy. Lava Sapped of strength In body, not mind Lava crawls on the floor Like all serpent-kind Lava seeks corners and nooks
  7. Hey you have no reason to be sorry, we ofcourse miss you, but your wife and kids need you! Christmas will be very welcome, it's not going around and I feel like find a silent corner to hide away and cry all the time, but I have to suck it up cause I can't spare the energy it takes to cry. I haven't been around much either, at all really.. I saw you wrote a poem in here, maybe when you have more time, you would like to share a little insight on writing poems?
  8. Thank you Lava 🙂 One more week of misery and its back to Christmas and family and fun..and DM! Sorry, I haven't been around as much as I'd like. Looking forward to running amuck with you all again, soon.
  9. All my well wishes to mrs star, I'm so sorry to hear she is so sick, hope she will have a speedy recovery, and that miraculously rest of family stay healthy and strong so you are able to take good care of her❤ Thank you for sharing lovely tips, and it is true caring and making people feel better take so surprisingly little. Even a little smile to a stranger, it cost so little to do, but can mean the world to someone else. I have both seen people light up when I smile at them, and cried in the car from emotions of being at the resieving end.. 🙂
  10. Hi! This seemed to be the right thread (apologizes if it is not). I'm not sure if I am to join, I wanna write poems...I wanted it sincee high school really, but life.. now due to me being disable to do a lot of other things I enjoy lately, I thought of it again..I'm having trouble getting started though, is this something you would discuss, hold classes or help with in here, or is it more individual working and then share for evaluation?
  11. What a difference a day makes, and yet, so much is still the same...My family has come down with Covid, specifically my Wife, Ali. The rest of us are waiting on test results, with no symptoms, but she is having a hard time. I finally sat down to think on how to cheer her up and encourage her, then I asked my boys. Here's what we came up with, with hopes that you all take the time to encourage those in your lifes, here on DM and closer to home 🙂 Sending pictures: a nice smile, a hug (of the air or another loved one), or fun things like wine or chocolate! Sending vo
  12. "This too shall pass," is an old Persian saying that may have originated with the poet Rumi. Abraham Lincoln, something of an aphorist himself, was a fan of this line because it is "true and appropriate in all times and situations," Lincoln said. "How much it expresses! How consoling in the depths of affliction!" -David G Allen, CNN Inspirational quotes to get us through the coronavirus shutdown - CNN
  13. well said @Arie 🍞🧈h❤️ http://uncannymagazine.com/article/seasons-glass-iron/ A Beautiful short story about freedom, in the end.
  14. Quotes and things about self-care have been my bread and butter this year.
  15. Feel free to add what inspires you, what brightens your days, we could all use a little light... Hope is the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I’ve heard it in the chillest land, And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
  16. Encouraging Times - December 2020 Prompt A steady stream of daily affirmations, encouraging quotes/poems/stories, to lighten the spirits and spread joy “IT IS THE SMALL THINGS, EVERYDAY DEEDS OF ORDINARY FOLK THAT KEEPS THE DARKNESS AT BAY. SIMPLE ACTS OF LOVE AND KINDNESS.” - Gandalf Please leave behind thoughtful, inspiring words to lift our spirits in these trying times. a runner up was, “THE WORLD IS NOT IN YOUR BOOKS AND MAPS. IT IS OUT THERE.”....but these days, so is Covid, so that didn't work!
  17. So this is before the missing rooster?
  18. I hope so! Next month is almost here, and you chose to be up next! I can't wait to see what you come up with, @StarRisk! mwahahaha... >.>
  19. Thank you. I think this can be a great boon for me. Look forward to serving.
  20. I went back and added a new "first chapter". I recognize that a bunch of descriptors are missing and intend to go back and add them on second drafting, but I'm curious to see what you guys thing, and where I could add, and what questions this brings up. ❤️ NaNo as of this post: 37986
  21. I'm at the 37K mark. I hit the 'midpoint' crisis and have slowed down a little until I figure out the next few chapters. How is everyone else doing?
  22. May I just say, way to go Arie to recognize the great potential and snach it up before anyone else could woop woop! 😆👍 Star I've seen your potential on other areas and can't wait to see what you can do in the writer's.
  23. Ugh, I am so sorry. With my kids in school, we (husband and I) decided to keep ours at home. They gave us the option of Hybrid return, online with the city/state, or online with their school. I'd love to do hybrid with at least one of them, but the numbers look terrible and i'd rather protect our teachers. I'm sorry you live in such a.... selfish county-state. Those are certainly doable goals. And ones that will help build your writing too. I'm sure that if I engaged in sprinting the way I have been, I would be much closer to my writing goals. So a little bit is great!
  24. Yay!!! That is excellent!! I could not agree more with the election distraction and fatigue. I am also an educator in a state and county where Covid is now in uncontrolled spread, so to say I have been distracted is an understatement. I did finish both of my reviews for the month and spent some time with the new YA fiction I was toying around with. This month I have just been trying to focus on getting some words on a page every single day no matter what.
