Previously: Cloy was on his way home from work one night when he witnessed an extraordinary girl get run over by a van. Instead of waiting for an ambulance, he picked her mangled body up and carried her home. Unable to understand his strange actions himself, what will he do with the fatally wounded girl? Previous chapters HERE
.( CHAPTER 2 MIRACLE OR MIRAGE?Collapse )
Romance, drama, humor, supernatural...Summary:
Depressed and disillusioned with the world, Cloy prefers his solitude. One day on his way home from work he rescues a strange girl who turns out to be a goddess. She rewards him with the gift of healing, but a special ability like that doesn't go unnoticed. It won't take long until a professor bent on proving her paranormal theories and other less benevolent gods get interested in the new favorite. It seems that they all have an agenda of their own... and what's that about the Titans?( 1 THE GIRL AND THE VANCollapse )

Name: I'm known on LJ as Elsie
Writing Experience: I’ve been writing since I was very little. Writing little stories was my favourite thing to do when I was a kid and as I grew up I started writing longer stories and poetry. I used to write about how I was feeling because I seemed to be able to get it out better in a poem. I haven't written anything for quite a few years. I just stopped because I didn't feel like it anymore.
Preferred Genres: Short stories and poetry. Mainly poetry.
Eduacation: I had a normal high school education. I then went to college to study childcare. A lot of people say I'm very literate and are surprised that I haven't studied literature or English language past high school GCSE's.
Country: England, United Kingdom
What do you hope to get from this community?:I'm hoping that being in this community will encourage me to start writing again. I'd like to make new friends with similar interests. And I'd like constructive comments on my work.
Looking forward to getting to know people and reading their work :)
A few years ago, I created a community on LiveJournal called A World of Scribbles. My desire was to design a place where people could share their writing, participate in friendly competitions to develop their writing skills, and perhaps most importantly, receive feedback towards that end. The community's been through a few iterations, but I've recently started it up again.
With that brief introduction, I invite you to stop by and take a look at worldofscribble
. There's a biweekly competition based around a writing challenge, a discussion thread for people wanting to brainstorm on the assigned topic, followed by a vote to determine whose entry was the best. In short, if you enjoy competitive writing, as well as discussing how to write well, this is the place for you.
I'm in for phase two of writerverse
. It's a prompt writing 'Land' type community, with teams and points and lots of writing activities. You can write with original or fanfiction, and you only have to participate in one challenge every two weeks to stay active- but I'm sure you'll want to participate in many more because it's fun.
Phase two just started today so it's a good time to jump in!

Name: Lightindark7 (also known as Kate in the ‘real’ world.)
Writing Experience: I’ve been writing since I was in college, I ran my own writing website for eight years before shutting down as I couldn’t give it the time and attention it needed. Now I currently post ‘shorts’ in a variety of places. I’m unpublished at the moment but am hoping very much to change that and am working on one anthology and 4 novels (1 is being edited, 1 is being drafted and 2 are still in the planning stage).
Preferred Genres: Fantasy and short stories.
Education: I went to university in Aberystwyth, Wales and earned my Degree in Law. After obtaining my Degree I went on to study the Legal Practice Course (a professional course for those who want to enter the legal profession). I now work as a paralegal and am saving up to get my masters in Legal Practice.
Country: England, United Kingdom
What do you hope to get from this community: I’m hoping to get some constructive feedback on some of my pieces, make some friends who have similar interests and goals and read some interesting snippets from others.

Where did you hear of us? Googling
Hello! I've been writing in a shared universe with my friend for 9 years and we now are managing 200+ characters. She created a bar graph chart to help us keep track of our character's lifespans (characters on the Y-axis, time on the X-axis). However it is in Photoshop and is extremely difficult to update. It's such a chore that she has stopped updating it all together which is hampering story writing since I now have to eyeball the existing chart to try and gauge who would all be alive at the same period in time.
I have tried Aeon Timeline but it's Mac only, so I can only use it on my lunch breaks at work. Do you have other digital solutions for how to keep track of characters' lifespans?
I'm joining a poetry community that looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. Every week there will be a prompt to write a different type of poem. The winner even gets a prize!
They need some more folks to join before they can get started though. Please consider joining.
|Do You Like To Write?|
Like to write? Love writing poetry? Great! There is a new challenge, called lastpoetstandng, where you write a a poem every week based on a different style of poetry prompt! Then they get voted on and the person with the least votes is out that week and the person with the most is safe the next week till you have one author standing who wins! What do you win? A snazzy graphic and a $10 GC to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. You don't even need to be a GREAT writer!
..who will come out on top?
Just a couple calls for submissions and an announcement to share.
#1 – Crossed Genres magazine is currently accepting submissions for the sci-fi and fantasy TRAGEDY
#2 – The 'Science in My Fiction' blog is also seeking short story submissions
. All stories must be inspired by actual science (with submissions, please include links to relevant articles).
#3 – Crossed Genres just released 'A Festival of Skeletons
' by Rachel Astruc. It's a darkly fantastic comedy that still makes me chuckle, even though I've read it several times now. Sure, I'm the editor, but if you like sass and suspense, I think you'll enjoy reading 'A Festival of Skeletons'.

egg moon rises
tinted red round tomato juice,
salted with stars,
garnished with a green sprig of crickets
chirping, bantering with the radio
another evening in Kyoto, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro,
crumpled denim sky, voices mingling over airwaves.
Also, dear moderators... I have a new journal, girl_needs_tea. Can it please be admitted?
