I'll probably check it out again after I finished editing, but I'm not sure. It also sounds like they take a long time to publish, and I really want to publish by the end of winter break.
ahh okay well good luck wherever you go c:

let me explain
there is a citadel called taria in the midst of two countries; lassow and kolca, who don't like each other. taria is often reduced to a battleground-but the three children of the lassian king, canton, graciela, and ina, are very very important.

canton is a hunter and the heir to the throne, but he has a volatile temper. people think he's capable of less than he is, but all the same, he's never really grown up. he's sort of in a frustrating vicious cycle that doesn't help his mental state at all. graciela is the middle child who is-or seems to be-simple and mindless and very stupid, incapable of comprehending the power she wields as the heiress to the throne if canton should prove too volatile she is often called fair-and-foul, because she is a very plain-looking person. ina is older than graciela, but younger than canton, and is adopted, and her birth mother, sira, made it very clear she was not to be in line for the throne unless all else failed. she is actually the daughter of ardetor and the queen's sister sira, and her father is very, very, very, very powerful. and thus, so is she- but nobody knows that. ina is the fairest one- the child that gets the most attention. however, her mother the queen is doing her best to keep her crazy, uncharted power from manifesting so that ina's already stressful life won't be too much for her to handle. ina's got the habit of biting off more than she can chew because she thinks that what affects other people won't affect her, if you catch my drift.

i'd love your opinions on this- it's something that comes into my mind a lot.
Hello. This sounds really awesome and I would read the hell out of it

Super excited because I've come up with another story with tons and tons of awesome characters and I've already got a spotify playlist and pinterest board for it.

Like GAAAAAAAAH.

Although I don't think I'm gonna write it as a novel. Instead, I'm gonna try scripting it out as a show.

I didn't write for the longest time ever.
and then I just started writing crap. all the time. it didn't have to make since. I would just write whatever I wanted to practice writing and then set it aside. Then I started working on my novel (I'm at like 27k words right now so woop woop)...

I still just write random little things (that have no plot at all) all the time.
