    His claws were lethal.

    Her touch was power.

    But together…

    they were unstoppable.

    He was all bloody knuckles and breaking bones, and she quickly adapted to her newfound abilities and tingling fingers.

    Alone, he liked watching Hockey, and she loved The Office.

    In the car, he listened to AC/DC, and she rocked out to The Killers.

    Getting dressed —both wearing their leather jackets— he wore his cowboy boots, while she wore her combat Dr. Martens.

    At dinner —they both devoured their steak and potatoes— while he drank his Molson’s, and she savored her Sprite.

    At night, he enjoyed hearing her ramble about her favorite novels, while she was fascinated by the stories from his past.

    Both afraid of rejection, he was learning to love her unconditionally, while she was just learning to love herself.

    And in the end, two lone ferals —a wolf and a fox— would soon unite, and form an unbreakable and unshakable pack; creating a noble legacy, that would carry on, for many generations.

    didn’t write for about 5 days, so here’s something from the start of chapter 3. i’ve come to the realization that dinghy sailing be a very important element of my wip despite neither having 0 experience w sailing nor knowing anyone who sailed is... well, a little difficult! wikipedia’s (mostly) got my back tho <3

    image reads as follows:

    Her presence flickers, turning a shade grey, before she settles back into normalcy. “Well,” she says, “you said you’d try for me, anyway, didn't you?”

    You don’t remember if you did or not, but she sounds honest and earnest, so it’s more likely that you did and just forgot than otherwise. It’s possible the years changed your sister, but Storm-speaker was not a liar. She was keen, bright-eyed, and occasionally cruel in her ignorance, but she was not a liar. 

    “I did,” you say, and the steadiness of your voice makes it sound more like agreement than a question. With the words being spoken into existence, there is only one thing left to do: gather the vestiges of your energy to hoist yourself into your dinghy’s hull.

    “Can’t I be protective over the two of you?” He asks, his gaze locking with mine as he smiled softly.

    I slowly turned my head to look at Scorpius, the striking resemblance between him and our father unnerving, “Not now Lysia,” Scorpius warned lowly.

    Rojas son tus manos

    Su aroma a hierro, su color carmesí, su pesadez, cada célula que conformaba esa pequeña gota de sangre, liberaron algo encadenado dentro de mí, una fascinación reprimida que creía solo un gusto extraño se revelaba.

    Sentía como me hervían los músculos y la sangre fluyendo a través de ellos, mi vista se volvió extraña, distorsionada y colorida, podía oír con más claridad, todos mis sentidos estaban agudizados igual que un animal con su presa. Me sentía más viva con más energía, capaz de hacer cualquier cosa, pero a la vez me sentía otra persona una parte fantasma de mí que se revelaba con el sufrimiento de los demás.

    Asustada y vigorizada, corrí sin mirar atrás, dejé todo como estaba, la escena, mi familia, mi vida entera. No podía cargar con todo lo que sentía así que corrí para jamás regresar.

    I looked at the people at the tables as we passed, trying not to be too conspicuous. Most ignored me; some looked up with bored curiosity, others had more hostile gazes. None of them matched the description of Essim.

    Finally, we spotted her at the far end near the wall. She was tall and willowy, like most eclipses. She almost looked pureblooded, which would be impossible on this world; her bones would have snapped under our heavier gravity. However, her back was bowed slightly, and a red-jeweled cane rested against the railing, which hinted that she was probably closer to pureblooded eclipse than most.

    She had long white hair which fell past her shoulders, bangs cropped straight across like Dazzle’s. Her eyes were dark, shimmering green, betraying the fact she was probably part Mirage. Her eyes snapped with inner fire as we neared, and they zeroed in on me. Her gaze was so piercing it made me feel uncomfortable. Almost as if she were a reverse image of Dazzle.

    I shoved away that feeling. Not everyone was a predator. Not everyone wanted to possess me. And of course, I wasn’t me at the moment...

    How to Name Your Characters: 6 Tips for Creating Memorable Names

    Why Do Character Names Matter?

    Character name meaning varies from text to text. Some novelists imbue a name with symbolic meaning that indicates a particular type of character. The nineteenth-century American writer Nathaniel Hawthorne was known to use names to foreshadow character traits.
    Examples include the foolish, hypocritical Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale in The Scarlet Letter and the titular character from the short story Young Goodman Brown, who represents a Puritanical mindset emblematic of a particular time period.
    Other authors give less heed to symbolism when selecting the right name, but they nonetheless use names to offer clues about a character’s social status, nationality, and family heritage. In his epic novel War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy used character naming to differentiate between different classes of people within Russia’s complicated semi-caste system, from simple peasants to the aristocracy to military leaders.

    5 Characteristics of a Good Character Name

    There is no fixed formula for giving your characters a great name (or even a good name), but a memorable and interesting name will tend to have the following qualities:

    It makes sense in context. A good character name is appropriate for the location and time period of your novel, short story, play, movie, or TV show.

    It fits with the genre of your piece. For instance, the name Darth Vader might be the perfect name for a sci-fi villain, but would not fit a real-life drama set in rural Nebraska.

    It is unique. Try to avoid evoking popular names from other works of fiction. Note, however, that some authors select similar names for effect, the way that George R.R. Martin’s Samwell Tarley seems to intentionally evoke the fantasy name Samwise Gamgee from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Even Martin’s own name, with its double initials, seems to pay homage to Tolkien.

    It is appropriate for a character’s role in the narrative. The audience may be able to surmise a certain type of character by simply reading or hearing their name. Shakespeare was a master of this, assigning whimsical sounding names to jesters (i.e. Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night), unique singular names for a main character (i.e. Hamlet, Othello, and Prospero), and common names to common characters (i.e. John Bottom and Francis Flute in A Midsummer Night’s Dream).

    It’s memorable without being distracting. Readers of Vladimir Nabakov’s Lolita could behold the unusual name of Humbert Humbert and know that they were dealing with a less-than-trustworthy character, yet Mr. Humbert’s odd name does not provide such distraction that a reader cannot focus on plot, backstory, and character development.

    How to Name Your Characters?

    Some authors have an easy time concocting a new character for their stories, but they have a harder time generating new names to give such a character. Here are some writing tips to get your creative juices flowing, help you source different names, and make sure each name fits with the character you’ve created:

    Consult the phone book. Grab a random name from the phone book to get yourself started. Then feel free to tweak the real name you find to make it better match your character’s personality. Did you pull up the name Vickie Malone? If you’re developing a character proud of her social status, why not change the name to Vivien Malone?

    Grab a baby name book. Baby name books can be found in bookstores, libraries, and online. If they’re good enough for naming a real-life family member, surely they can be good enough for fiction writers seeking the perfect male or female names.

    Use a random name generator. The internet is full of character name generator websites. A simple search will bring up a slew of these and get you on your way to choosing a useful list of names to pick from. You can even use a specialized name generator, like a fantasy name generator, to help you pick a genre-appropriate unusual name.

    Pay homage to famous names from a book or movie. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, so if you want to pay your respect to a bestselling author or screenwriter, find a way to incorporate part of one of their best character names into your own work. This particularly works if you’re writing in the same genre—such as science fiction or superhero comics—as the author to whom you’re paying homage. You can even name a character after an author.

    Make use of root meanings. A name meaning can derive from its cultural roots—including Latin, Greek, Sanskrit, or any cultural background. If you research the ancient meanings of certain names, you might be able to seed ideas about your characters in readers’ heads. For instance, the Welsh god of the sea is named Dylan, so this might be a good character name for a mariner. The word linda means “beautiful” in Spanish, so it may be apt to name a gorgeous female character Linda.

    Don’t get hung up on finding the perfect name. Ultimately, audiences care far more about a character’s arc and three-dimensionality than their specific name. If you audition different names but find you’re unable to find one you truly like, insert a placeholder and keep writing. You can come back later and brainstorm similar names, or you can just let the placeholder become the final name for your character. At the end of the day, that name choice will not save or sink your manuscript; it will be a small part of a cohesive whole product.

    How to Find a Literary Agent: 3 Tips for Finding an Agent

    What Is a Literary Agent?

    A literary agent is a person who represents the business interests of writers and their written works. Agents work with new writers and bestselling authors alike, acting as business-minded intermediaries between creatives and book publishing houses, as well as theatrical or film producers. Literary agents serve their client list, representing their professional careers and marketing them to the right people.

    What Does a Literary Agent Do?

    An agent’s job involves: Obtaining and negotiating their book authors’ contracts. Submitting manuscripts to book publishers on their clients’ behalf Protecting their clients’ best interests

    What Are the Benefits of Working With a Literary Agent?

    Literary agents know how the publishing industry works and have in-depth knowledge of the publishing world. They also have connections to publishing houses, providing their client list with access to both major houses and independent publishers. Agents know what kind of books editors like, what booksellers want, and where their writers’ work will be best suited.
    For instance, they know which indie publisher is looking for children’s books, or which big New York publisher is hunting for a collection of young adult short stories. A literary agent knows everything you need in order to get published and works to support and champion your writing.

    How to Find a Literary Agent

    There are plenty of agents out there, but many of them won’t be the right agent for you. During your agent search, try to look for ones that have experience in your preferred genre—and don’t just say yes to the first agent who offers.
    If you’re a fiction writer penning sci-fi thrillers, you’ll want an agent who has a track record in that market, not an agent who specializes in historical fiction or gothic romance. Here are some ways you can find a literary agent of your own:

    Do research. Before you reach out to any literary agencies, research them thoroughly and create a wish list of the ones you think would be the best fit for you. If your goal is to write commercial fiction, you need a literary agent who’s well-versed in that particular market. If you want to create graphic novels, then you need an agent who has the necessary connections in that space to lead you to success. You’re going to spend a lot of time communicating with the person you choose to represent your professional writing career, so it’s best to get a feel for everything that’s out there and make sure the agent you trust with your first book is an agent you can trust with your next book.

    Check agent listings. There are a number of websites with databases containing lists of agents and community resources geared towards helping new authors find representation (or experienced authors find a new agent). Some sites let you sort by genre or keywords like narrative nonfiction, literary fiction, picture books, or science fiction to help you narrow down the search to find an agent in the right field.

    Start querying. If the professional contact information of the person you’d like to be your agent is available, send them a query letter. A query letter is a condensed version of a book proposal: a brief, one-page letter containing all of the relevant information pertaining to who you are, what your novel is about, and who its target audience is. A good query letter is your ticket to capture an agent’s attention—so keep it short and enticing; it’s your best chance at standing out. Once you’ve hooked their interest, an agent may request to read your full manuscript. If they like what they read, they may make an offer of representation, which means you’re that much closer to having your work out there.

    Try self-publishing. It might be a long shot, but publishing your own work either in book form or online can also attract an agent’s attention. If you attract the right audience, you may end up building yourself a fanbase, which can also amplify your presence in the modern literary scene.

    Eternal WIP Excerpt

    “Why didn’t you ever tell me? What didn’t think you could trust me?”

    “Reine-“

    “Tell me the truth Arkender.” The effect of his name was immediate, like he’d been slapped in the face.

    “The truth? You want the honest to gods truth? No. I didn’t trust you. Why would I? Your reputation and anger proceeded you and what would you have done? Gone into a rage and screamed and fought me? And then how would I ever have gotten us to where we are now.”

    “Where we are now? Our entire relationship is built on a lie! Was anything real?”

    “Of course it was.”

    “Really? How am I to know that? We met under false pretenses that you’ve kept up for centuries. Did you ever truly care about me? Do you care about me?”

    He reached for her then, but her body recoiled away. To protect itself. To protect her. From him, of all people.

    Before she really knew what she was doing, she’d left and ran for several streets. At some point she’d stumbled into a bar.

    Where she remained for an unknown amount of time before a voice, an all too familiar voice broke through her frantic thoughts. “What’s the saying? ‘Look what the cat dragged in’? Or perhaps in this case, what the cat let go.”

    “Go away Conor.”

    “Hmm. No, I think I’ll stay. Besides, in this state, you really shouldn’t be alone raindrop. Whatever he did must have been pretty bad. Unless of course you’re here because of that mortal. Really, that would just be-“

    “He lied about the reason we met and used me.” The words were out before she considered who it was she was talking to. But then, what could he do compared to that of all things?

    “I’m sorry.” His words sounded….genuine. The shock must have shown on her face as she turned to him, because he held his hand to his chest and affected a pained expression. “You thought I wouldn’t care? We were friends once my dear, and I am hardly one to let such valuable things slip through my fingers. Truly, I am sorry, both that he did it, and that you found out. If you’d allow me, I think I might know how to take the edge off?”

    Somehow, he looked just as genuine as he sounded.

    But this was Conor, he couldn’t be trusted. She shouldn’t trust him.

    But that voice sounded distinctly like the very person who had lied to her for almost all of her life.

    And in this moment? She desperately wanted to. Needed to.

    “What did you have in mind?”

    He smiled.
