  • Scout: but I like doing it less as a serious thing and more as just an impromptu writing exercise. This year (and last obv) I have an outline though but I'm just writing it as a funny thing for my friends to read.
    October 25, 2014, 02:06:56 PM
  • Scout: I've finished nano twice and both times the result was obviously unreadable crap with a bunch of padding and filler
    October 25, 2014, 02:06:19 PM
  • Scout: I tried writing a short segment of text both in English and my native tongue to see how they compared and it took like three times as many words to express the same thing in English so
    October 25, 2014, 02:05:15 PM
  • Scout: Because I am writing in my native tongue and the nanowrimo word count is calibrated for English
    October 25, 2014, 02:04:17 PM
  • Scout: I'm giving myself permission to copy paste full segments from my last year's writing
    October 25, 2014, 02:04:01 PM
  • dannyness: I'm kind of doing the same thing. I've only done it once and I made it, but the resulting novel was terrible. I am taking the ideas that worked  and plugging them in elsewhere.  And I have an outline  done. That should help.

  • Scout: so I guess that's technically cheating but idgaf
    October 25, 2014, 07:59:56 AM
  • Scout: But I'm going to be cannibalizing the scraps of my last year's unfinished novel
    October 25, 2014, 07:59:49 AM
  • Scout: I am
    October 25, 2014, 07:57:43 AM
  • dannyness: Anybody planning on doing NaNoWriMo this year?
    October 25, 2014, 04:56:22 AM
  • Scout: Quiet week?
    October 24, 2014, 09:01:59 PM
  • Axe: No worries BB, life happens :)
    October 23, 2014, 07:05:10 PM
  • Black Betty: will try to catch up on posts this weekend
    October 23, 2014, 02:44:45 PM
  • Black Betty: sorry for being MIA lately guys. RL is kicking my ass a little at the moment
    October 23, 2014, 02:44:32 PM
  • kysenp: Thanks Abbey. I took care of it. Will get posts up tomorrow folks!
    October 21, 2014, 12:09:43 AM
  • Jamie Farrell: wow sorry for the MIA, work has been a pain in the butt lol
    October 20, 2014, 08:01:09 PM
  • abbey: Ummm...  We seem to have some spamin "Questions" thread.  I would remove it, but I figured an admin should?
    October 20, 2014, 07:08:19 PM
  • dannyness: indeed. Lets forge those relationships, yo.
    October 20, 2014, 06:16:59 PM
  • Black Betty: like character building moments and such
    October 20, 2014, 09:25:20 AM
  • Black Betty: like "breakaway threads" are what I call them

Welcome to Finding Serenity!

Finding Serenity is an original character Role play set in Joss Whedon's Firefly/Serenity 'Verse.


We left the Earth long ago, used it up and left it to die while we sought out new worlds. Cultures blended in our journeys but eventually we reached our new home. Dozens of planets and hundreds of Moons to terraform and make our own. For centuries we grew and expanded relying on the Government (The United Allied Planets or Alliance as they’re better known) to tend to us, protect us. Of course eventually some, especially those away from the central core worlds, wanted more freedom, more independence and fought to gain it. The Alliance fought to keep ‘Unification’ in place. The War was ugly and the ‘Independents’ lost. That was eight years ago, but really it might have been yesterday given how little peoples opinions have changed.
Life, however, goes on; people make their way in the black, in the richness of the Core worlds and out in the Frontier lands of the Rim and Border worlds. You keep moving, seeking out your path and watching out for dangers whether that be from the black itself, the dark side of nature or them gorram cannibalistic, masochistic Reavers that seem to plague the Rim worlds (them you really don’t want to run into).

Just when you think the world returns to some semblance of normalcy things have to go and change again. The government it seems was not done with meddling to keep people safe. Those Reavers I mentioned, turns out they created them. A side effect of something that killed about thirty million other people. At least that’s what the transmission said. You might choose not to believe it.

Question is what are you gonna do about it? You gonna stick by the Alliance Government? Rise up against it? Or you just don't care either way 'slong as you can make a living?

Our ships and characters are caught in the middle of it all. With every turn, every choice put forward and every decision made we are . . .

What: Write an IC post about your character hunting for something hidden. It doesn't have to be about eggs, but bonus points if it is somehow related!

Where: Any IC spot - the Ballad, Prologues, Diaries/Journals. Then reply to this post with a link to your entry.

Who: Any character for whom you have a sub-account.

When: Now until the 1st May 2014, 5pm GMT.

Why?: 'Cause it's fun! And Caliope will make you a shiny participation badge if you do!

Hello. Would it be possible to put the list of who's online/has been active today near the top instead of at the bottom? I ALWAYS look at this to see if someone might be posting soon, and putting it closer to the chat window would be useful to see who might be available to chat. Thanks!
