At the end of a very long day, you finally get ready to go home. You wave to your friends in goodbye, but as you put your hand down you notice something – your shadow is still waving.

Regular

You have died and been sent to Hell. Upon arriving you are immediately confronted by Satan himself. He begins his rant about you being punished for your sins when you punch him in the face, rip one of his horns off, and beat him with it. When he resurrects he brings the full force of Hell’s army upon you. Upon fighting your way through Hell you find the portal to leave. 30 years later after dying a second time Satan promises that you won’t escape him again. You escape. You escape many more times over the next few millennia. It gets to the point that by the 50th or so death when you arrive you see Satan sitting on his throne filing his nails and he says “The Chasm Of Screams has a sewage problem. You can detour through Tartarus. Also, Phil said you left your phone charger in his house last decade.”

Hell has teamed up with Heaven to protect humanity from the Fae.

You Are a Writer. Own It!

Sometimes, you just need a little reminder that you are a writer, what you’re creating is worthy, and that you should keep going! Today, Young Writers Program participant Dawnia Nosrek is here to give you that reminder:

If you asked a normal human being what they’re afraid of, chances are their response would be something other than “a blank page”. But it’s different for us writers. We are not normal human beings. We are extraordinary people, capable of snapping realities and plots and characters into existence by merely placing pen to paper. 

Of course, if you’re anything like me, you’re terrified of the piece of paper in front of you. Of the wordless, empty blank page staring you down, scoffing at the very thought that you could produce anything worthwhile, credible, or even entertaining for any common reader.

But here’s the thing: just because you have a blank page doesn’t mean you’re fresh out of novel-worthy ideas. An idea is an idea even if it sounds dumb to you at first. 

Don’t be encumbered by those destructive thoughts that plague the battlefield of your mind. That blank page is imposing. I know. But you have a world brimming with new ideas just waiting to come alive. Who cares if it sounds stupid? Who cares if it doesn’t exactly fit in the story line? 

Right now, it’s yours. It’s your very own beautiful creation. Take pride in it. Own it. The point of writing is to write. Revising and making sure your sentences actually make sense will come later.

For now, close your eyes. Envision where you want your creation to go. Don’t worry about coherent sentences or shallow characters or plot holes or perfect punctuation or grammar or any of the fear that’s holding you back. Take charge and take off! Just go and write! 

I believe in you.

You are a writer.

Own it.

There are cases where crocodiles and other large reptiles are kept in tiny tanks and live on a poor diet and as a result are small, weak adults.

Earth is our tiny tank and once out on other planets we discover that we have really cool powers and abilities, possibly even growing extra limbs and other/ new body parts

I’ve gone down in flames so many times before. How is this any different?
