Aw, I'm sorry, Maxi... D: Word count can be frustrating.

Are you having trouble with word count for just one story or with all of them? Your description skills have improved incredibly over the past year, you know. :D That really does help the word count of chapters. If you want to make it a bit longer, try to always add some kind of description to something someone said, even if it's brief.

EXAMPLE:

Instead of,
Bob said, "I don't know what to do!"
"Hmm...let me think," Bill replied. "Wait, I've got it!"
"What do you've got?"
"The answer, stupid."
"Ohhhh. Good!"

Write,
Bob pulled at his hair and said, "I don't know what to do!"
"Hmm...let me think," Bill replied. He stayed silent for a long moment, his brow furrowed. A smile suddenly spread across his face. "Wait, I've got it!"
Bob stared at him blankly. "What do you've got?"
Bill rolled his eyes. "The answer, stupid," he huffed.
Bob nodded slowly. "Ohhhh. Good!"

See how that makes it a bit longer? ^_^ Just adding those simple tags helps the word count, plus helps the reader experience what's going on. It's a skill can be a bit hard to develop, but once you've got it, it's like riding a bike--you don't forget how to do it, and you don't even have to think about it.

AWESOME. O_O XD Tell me what you think of it!!!

Thanks, Ash. <:^J I just need to work on it a bit more.

France is so "Yep, I'll just be standing here...no problem.". XD Book Two of FW is, like, 800 words but now, I think I can make it over 2 000.

TheAshWolf 11-14-2012 02:01 AM

For Max:
So, in a nutshell, seasons 1 through 2 of Hetalia is called "Axis Powers" and seasons 3 through 4 is called "World Series" so...try not to get those two mixed up while you're searching for episodes. <:^D

Axis Powers episode 1:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_i-XL_fm6E

Not all of the English dubbed episodes are up, so, at one point, you'll have to start reading the English subs. Sorry. :^B

PASTAAAAAAAAAAAAA. 8D

Look, hon...it's not your job to worry about money. <:^J The adults can and will take care of that. You're still just a kid. There's no point for you to worry about money, because you can't get a job, and, besides, it's your parents job to take care of that, not you. (I have this problem all the time, trust me. x_x) I know it's hard not to worry, but you just have to tell yourself that your parents will handle it and everything is going to be okay in the long run.

o.o I was wondering what that GIF was from...is that a movie or something? :D *le wants to watch it purely to see that scene in the GIF* XD

x_x Exactly. And, plus, I'm horribly ill at the moment, and all I want to do is SLEEP, but I can't since I'm behind.

it's an EPYK Studio Ghibli movie. It's a prequel to The Cat Returns. the movie is really good, and inspiring, and the soundtrack is amazing :D
I'm fairly on target thankfully, unlike last year when I was horribly behind, but it seems that I have so much to do, and so little time. And having to turn in work samples by a certain date each month frazzles me so much. And the science fair (virtual :P) is coming up, so my mom is trying to covertly get me to do that when I have no interest what so ever :P
I'm so sorry that you're sick, that makes everything so much worse. Ugh.

HeatherB 11-14-2012 08:11 PM

Guh. I really hate myself. All the time. Every day. I'm just such a BITCH and I want all this attention and shit even if I have it already and I blow up at my parents when all they've done is help me and I don't know who I am anymore, I don't know who to be. One part of me says, 'well fuck 'em all, you're amazing' and one part says 'how could you do that? how could you be so cruel? what have you done with the old heather--or is this how you've been all along but just more subtle and i haven't noticed what a horrible person you are untli now?' and the last part is completely neutral and just says, 'i'll sit back and watch and i don't care because nothing matters, don't you remember you're just a meaningless piece of shit and in a million years no one will remember you so why bother trying to be remembered NOW at all?' So I'm just... I don't know what to do. I'm turning up the Glee and pretending to be fine in the meantime. Therapy sounds really good right now and that's kind of a low point for me because... I've just never really felt like it's right for me so I've gotta be desperate if I want a therapist, something I've never wanted before because it just wasn't worth troubling anyone over. It's different now. Something's changed and everything's the same. It's the same old story but coming back worse each time and one of these day I know I'm just going to completely fall apart, curse out my parents and give my teachers the finger and not care if anyone sees because I don't matter. And sass my classmates--friends and enemies alike, they'll all be the same to me--because that will be my daytime act, a routine. When I'm home the tears will fall and my legs will bruise under my own knuckles and I'll scratch my chest and back until they almost bleed, but not quite, and I'll sing to myself and do my homework and it's all so NORMAL, but it's not there yet. I don't know why the depression's back but suddenly I just HATE myself and I want to lash out at everything for the sole reason that I can't reach inside and tear myself up from the inside out. I'm just a mean, cruel, terrible person and I don't know if it's always been that way, if I can change, if, if, if anything, I don't know. It's that hopeless feeling again just like from this summer and that went away so I hope, I hope, I hope this will too, I can't have this on top of everything else because it's too much. I can't take it.

Emaafre 11-14-2012 08:13 PM

I hate my life

HeatherB 11-14-2012 08:36 PM

I just wrote this.
I’m not thinking
I’m not feeling
I’m just gliding
Gliding along in a mass of others
Unnoticed
Part of the crowd
I’m not even doing
I’m just gliding
Gliding along to my own beat
Yet I do care
What they think,
Say,
Do,
I pretend indifference
But I really care
More than anything else
It’s what keeps me going
And I talk
Smile
Even laugh
Gesture around, too big—
Can anyone see me?—
I don’t know
I shouldn’t care
It’s all that matters
It’s all I want
Acceptance
Then I go home
At the end of the day
My parents criticize me
Harmlessly
Not meaning anything
Yet I lash out
I need relief—
All this anger, it’s stored within, find an outlet—
I used to write
I don’t know what happened
I can’t do anything
But be angry
And scared
I’m scared, too
Whatever
No one cares
I’ll just fade out slowly
No one notices anyways
I’m not really there
No one ever did care
I’m fading away
No one looked twice in my direction
I’m sliding, gliding, ghosting away
No one noticed their shadow is gone
I’m cutting, ripping, tearing, done
Killing slow and gentle now
I’m right here but I’m disappeared
I’m still with you just not in sight
Turn the corner and you’ll find me there
Talking
Smiling
Even laughing
But you’re at a dead end street
It’s a one-way road
How are you gonna turn back?
How am I gonna go back?
I want to go back
How was it like before?
When did the change begin,
Was it slow or all at once?
Was it fast and slamming hard or slow and torturously sweet?
Tell me, tell me
Forget me not
Whisper to your shadow that the sun’s gone out
Turn around, turn around
It’s not there
I’m just around the corner
You’re not even to the end of the block
Just turn around the corner
I’ll be right here
You’re stepping off the sidewalk
You’re running to the street
You found someone across the way
Someone better than me
I’ll just stay here, waiting
Lingering melancholy
No worries
I know you’ll join me
Eventually, they all do
For now, I wait alone

lvhamsters 11-14-2012 09:01 PM

Three words
I
Hate
Myself

CACrools 11-14-2012 09:38 PM

Heather: But. I. Like. You. You are fine. (Read the list you posted on Sunday(?), and do that... I'm dead freaking serious) I understand deppression sucks, and I understand that I haven't had it, so I don't know what its like, but you are okay. Yes, you did used to write, but just write venting poetry, maybe that will help.
Emaafre: I'm sorry. I understand that life is tough, but you gotta keep on going. Easier said then done, I know, but if people are being mean, turn the other cheek. I know you can do it
Calla: But, why, you are amazing, an awesome writer, and just an awesome person in general. I know you can get through it, and I don't see anything to make you hate yourself. (Happy Birthday by the way).

HOLY CRAP GUYS



HOLY


CRAP



O_____________________O

All of you, put in your headphones and blast your music. NOW. If there are any coffee drinkers, go pour yourself a nice cup of coffee. Relax in a hot bath, watch a funny movie, go for a run, sit outside for a bit. Just get off the computer and let your minds breathe for a little bit! All this hatred is suffocating you.

C'mon, guys!!! What the heck happened?! X_x You don't hate yourselves. Do what Sandy said. Listen to music, watch something funny, drink some tea/coffee, eat chocolate, do SOMETHING that will get you guys out of this negative little bubble.

lvhamsters 11-14-2012 10:54 PM

I'm eating a cupcake yet I feel no happiness ;~;
Of course, it doesn't help when your parents called you hideous :\
Or when you loose all of your self confidence.
Or when you think that your selfish for putting so many problems on other people, such as what I'm doing right now by posting this.
And you know it's bad when the first thing you think when your mom says "I wonder what she'll be in five years," And you think "Dead."

*le hugs*
Try jelly babies to vent. It's so fun imagining the people you hate being trapped in the jelly baby, and TORTURING THEM. *wild, feverish look in eye*
It helps vent anger/frustration.
I only saw this post, so have no idea what's wrong, so can't help you. I shall now go read the previous posts.
