Start with a bit of bubble water. Add a few feathers you found on the ground. Throw in a silver penny and an old whistle. A pinch of black pepper and pollen for sneezes in summer. A dash of glitter for sparkles. A pair of old glasses for squinty little eyes. Stir well, and let simmer for twenty-three years. Then pour into the funniest looking box you can find. Extra points if it plays music.

Serve at seventy four degrees or higher. Any colder, and she whines.

New Project: Brainstorming/Critique Groups?

thewritingcafe:

A follower of mine recently asked a question about websites that allow people to brainstorm with each other. I couldn’t think of any and I couldn’t find any either, so I got an idea.

If you would like me to sort you in a group with others, based on your preferences, as a place to brainstorm and share ideas, keep reading.

Here is how it will work:

I will be using a private chat room website called Chatzy. It’s free, easy to use, allows password protected chat rooms, and saves your chats so that you can post a question, even if no one else is on, and check back later to see if you get an answer.

You must be off anon so that I know your URL and so that I can reply privately to you. If your information is too long for one ask, send it in multiple asks. Do not use the submit feature or the fan mail feature. Contact me with the following information:

  • Preferred genres to read and write (including fan fiction (include the fandoms (even if you don’t write fan fiction, put in some fandoms so that I can match you with others in that fandom for some common interests)))
  • Weaknesses and strengths in writing
  • Country and time zone
  • Availability (time of day, days of the week, etc.)
  • Preferences for group members (age, gender, personality traits, etc. (you should include traits you know you’ll conflict with)
  • Any info about you (age, gender, etc.)
  • Nickname

This is not a beta-reader program. While you’re free to beta read for others in your group, this is created to share ideas, create ideas, and get feedback on characters, concepts, scenes, plots, and more.

I will not give your URLs to the other people in your group. I will give them a list of the nicknames of other people in your group. Therefore, if you’re not comfortable giving out your real name, use something else as your nickname. For Chatzy, use the nickname you provided in the information you gave me, as that is the nickname your group members will have.

I’m aiming for groups to be between 3 and 6 people. If I don’t get enough people to participate, I’ll scrap the project.

If this is successful and I have enough groups, I’ll create some questions and activities to get you started.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to match everyone to a group. I apologize if I cannot find a group for you.

i wonder how the chickens feel about having their potential children stolen from them to be painted and hidden in a treasure hunt for a holiday where the main mascot is a rabbit

you do that? Here we hide… chocolate eggs……

I’m more worried that you’re taking the potential children eggs instead of the unfertilized ones. You really have to go out of your way to get the ones that will turn into chicks around here and they cost a bunch extra for only a mildly different taste. Just to boil them and litter them in the yard. No one I know wants Easter eggs for that kind of money.

When I have a kickback with the Besties.

Maleficent and Hades are totally snarky BFFs and no one will convince me otherwise.

man there is some serious sexual tension goin’ on between Ursula and Captain Hook

Can we just appreciate the spectrum of villain design in disney movies I mean you got the scrawny Cruella and Jafar and look at Jafar’s’s curled grin. You got your gorgeous villains like maleficent and the queen and your chin-game-strong villains like Hades and Hook and then your round villains like Ursula and Queen of Hearts. Look at the Queen of Hearts she doesn’t even fucking wear makeup and you know why? Because she’s the queen of hearts if you don’t tell her she’s beautiful she’ll take your head off she KNOWS she doesn’t need to try. She doesn’t even have to look pretty she’s already the fucking queen. Ursula is a shapeshifter and chooses to be her size. Hook gestures a lot with his hook and interchanges it. Hades’ hair is fucking fire and lights up like you threw gasoline on him when he gets angry.
I fuckin love Disney villains.

I’m honestly shocked that no one has yet mentioned how frigging cute the face that the Evil Queen is making here is. Like she is just lighting up at whatever Cruella is saying, she almost looks Disney Princess esque with that stuff.

Disney villains are always my favorite because no two look alike in a world where the heroes always seem to look very similar if not the same disney villains rock how different they are

IT’S SPRING. HOW DO I KNOW?

all of the above

Do not diss the soup them’s fighting words

chicken noodle soup is delicious how dare you nah ilu snark and the new chapter was amaze i approve of this means of describing soup
