I really liked the ancient-looking sets of myriorama cards like this one - there don't seem to be many options around anymore! I bet Philip Pullman has some beautiful sets ;_;

RE: Plotist Writer's Gift Guide - November 2017
Thanks @toasha! I love making lists and I love gift shopping so I really enjoy making these and I'm glad they're useful for someone!
My purse has also been in danger several times while compiling the lists @_@ especially with board games...
RE: Writing Tips Round Up: Bad romance
@typical_demigod I really like the switching genders advice.
I also really like this Gamasutra guide - http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/AlexanderFreed/20160725/277738/Writing_Romance_in_nonRomance_Games_Linear_Romances.php
It's supposed to be for video games writers but it's really good advice across mediums : )
RE: The Transforming Moon: Write your unexpected weregiraffe
I absolutely adore moon folklore!
Some favourite moon stories recently:
- Lovely tale in One Hundred Nights of Hero by Isabel Greenberg about three moon sisters - a magical graphic novel that I just finished reading.
- At my local storytellers group recently there was a great story about the Moon as the trickster goddess of stories and using them to outwit the Sun who fell in love with her but came on a bit too strong for her liking.
- I think in Japanese folklore the moon is a bunny?
- Neil Gaiman’s Stardust – kind-of (more about a star than the moon but some moon cameo)
- Rukia was always my favourite Bleach character and she always had lots of Moon imagery around her.
- Yuna from Final Fantasy X was a favourite and she also had lots of Moon connotations!
Anyway I'm going to go read about the Wakaranga moon myths now...
RE: Greetings From A Nerd :)
Hi Madi, welcome to the site : )
I am a Scottish lass living in England, alas I am no longer a youthful 16 year old and my writing has suffered a bit over the past few years but being here does get me inspired again, especially when I see so much enthusiasm from the rest of you!
Characters are my main love in stories too - and fantasy is a fave genre of mine. I think my inspiration to write also comes from reading amazing stories... I also want to write the stories I feel are missing from the world!
Glad the site is helping you in your endeavors and if you feel so inclined, do share your work and timelines with us, we love to see what people are doing with the tool!
RE: Issues with adding photos to elements in Plotist
This is completely fascinating to me, I'm absolutely ignorant of the entire ghostwriting world. It sounds like you requests across all sorts of media - non-fiction articles but fiction books too? How long does it take you to work on a full book, and how much involvement does the original "author" have - do they check on your progress or do they just expect you to deliver the final product?
