DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

About This Club

A place for writers to gather and talk about the business and craft.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Linde pushed herself away from her disk, shutting down her computer for the evening. She had been reviewing religious documents. As Queen of Saxony, she was head of the Saxon Lutheran Church. Occasionally the bishops sent her things to review and sign off on. She had gone to the trouble of learning Latin, Hebrew and koine Greek so she could understand the source documents. On the wall of her sleeping chamber she had two sketches. Remote viewers had gone back and made sketches of the Nativity and the Crucifixion. They were blocked from the Resurrection. Apparently some things were meant to be taken on faith. She also had been reviewing some political papers. When they reached their age of majority the immediate members of the royal family were all given seats in the German Bundestag and were expected to take part in political debates. She was a Christian Democrat herself. She had served twice as caretaker Chancellor. Taking advantage of the situation, one of the ship’s cats, Furball jumped into her lap and purred loudly as she hugged him close. He deigned to hang out around her quarters because Lily spoiled him with treats, She felt in need of a late night smack. She changed into sweats and headed down to the ship’s beer hall as she didn’t have the heart to wake Lily.. It was busy since it was after hours. She went over to the generous breakfast buffet and loaded up with scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon, sausage, toast and orange juice and milk. She was lucky enough to have a fast metabolism and plus worked out three times a week under 1.5g. After sitting down she pulled out a worn paperback out o the pocket of her sweats. A C. S. Forester Hornblower novel. Finishing up her meal she still felt restless, and moved to the grand piano and sat down on the bench. She softly played some Bach. She felt that she could have made a very good living as a concert pianist if she hadn’t gone into the Navy. She knew she was a music snob, She didn’t consider anything composed after 1850 to be real music. As she finished up one composition she felt a slight vibration on her wrist. She held her wrist comp up to her lips. “Wettin”. It was Julie, the head of her component of remote viewers, “Admiral, they’ve jumped”. Linde didn’t need to ask who ‘they’ were. “Spread the word. Execute Runaway”. The fleet wasn’t really going to run. Most of it would hide at the bottom of Regina’s oceans. Some out in the asteroid belts. Some out in the Oort Cloud. Not in gas giant atmospheres. The methane-breathers had made it violently clear that they did not to be tangled in oxygen-breathers conflicts. She suddenly felt tired and headed back to her quarters ti try and get some sleep. She woke up a few hours later. The cover to the porthole in her bedroom was open and the area was illuminated by Bismarck’s floodlights. She could see Furball’s tail lashing in frustration at all the fish he couldn’t get at. In the near distance she could see the floodlights of other ships.

  4. Welcome @VerinSedai to the club! What brings you around? What is your favorite tool for writing?
  5. Good to see you poking in, @Taei! I recognize your handle from time past, but it's good to see friendly and familiar faces in these parts. 🙂 Best of luck with the Degree! I understand those are quite the time suck. We're probably not going far, but we do post poetry prompts from time to time too! ^^
  6. @Arie Hi. I've been around Dragonmount for a long time but haven't been very active in awhile. I have done RPing here on Dragonmount before, but I don't write enough at the moment to do that. I have written mainly poetry and I have a half dozen stories I have started but never seem able to finish. I joined this club after seeing that they had restructured everything again. I would love to write more, maybe after finishing my degree (December, *fingers crossed*) I will be more active. Time will tell.

  8. O mighty man, tall on the field you stood, no sword in hand and yet men below yield for he wielded the wyrmwood; no axe or weapon slashing; a shield of molten rage, a blade of frozen hate upon thy shoulders sat a mantle of orange

  14. @SableSage @SinisterDeath That's right! You finish, you start! It's what makes it a Duel!
  15. I believe you're supposed to pick the next type of poem, and/or maybe the next line?

  17. The woven weaves of Mother Elgee Smothers knaves with a decree A knee you shall bend and with glee they mend
  18. Welcome (male?) @Estel! Yup, still weird. (but that's on me!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Other than poetry games, what draws you to writing?
  19. The woven weaves of Mother Elgee Smothers knaves with a decree A knee you shall bend
  20. The purpose of the Poetry Duel is to build a poem, one line at a time. Much like stories. However, there are rules! 1) The start of the Poem is determined by the person who finishes a poem. 2) You can not finish the Poem you start. (Exception is if a Poem sits for more than 5 days). 3) Claim the Type of poem! (Lymeric, sonnet, free verse) and now many lines until it is complete. 4) Be creative and have fun. There is no wrong line in Poetry! Need help on deciding on a poem time? This one is simple! Feel free to search out others! MY START! 😄 Let's start with a simple Limerick! The woven weaves of Mother Elgee
  21. Weeeell I haven't really written much yet, well I guess in a way I have..I'm that one odd relative that writes funny songs for family ocations, that makes everyone embarrased, but it is a marvelous icebreaker😁 I would like to write something more serious not nessesarily sad just well serious. What type of poems do you prefer? I would love to read something, if you like to share, maybe it will inspire me even😊 Oh sorry...Welcome nice to meet you!
  22. Hello @Arie, thanks for the welcome. For writing tool, I prefer writing using good old pen and paper, but when those aren't available I resort to writing on my phone. It's usually just poems though. Any stories I write using any Word Processor available, as long as they connect to cloud. @Lavandula Nice to meet another who likes writing poems. Do you share your poems here on Dragonmount?
  23. @Lavandula I adore you, and i'm sorry I missed this! (loading forums, amrite?) The club is a bit of a support group, while also being a safe space (i hope!) to share projects and inspire new, fun ideas. I'm not sure how to answer your question? My poetry is often just jumbled thoughts in fancier words. Or very melancholy. I missed a few welcomes! Hello @Taei @Jeannaisais @metalheadgirl22 and @SableSage! What are some of your favorite writing tools?
