I wasn’t tagged but I found it so I’m staying now teehee.
Tea would be lovely Eliot.

This is Naveen, but you may call him prince Naveen
Chapter four (part one):
Being on the exposed surface of Mars, or any planet other than Earth for that matter, was still an odd feeling. Out of the corner of Andromeda’s eye, she could see the edge of the Academy’s protective bubble. On the other side, was the small, block-like building, where 20 or so people watched the students through thick gla…[Read more]
Awesome chapter! My favourite phrase is ‘ The outer layer consisted of interweaving scales’.
BTW it also didn’t show in my notifications that I was tagged, quite strange.
ah I was wondering why no one was commenting, glad to know its not because people don’t like it lol
Well it’s good to hear other people’s opinions, I understand not everyone will like my stuff, but that’s ok.
I understand that not everyone will like my writing, if someone only likes horror and I write a fantasy story, I can’t expect this person to like my story. I will try to take your comments with my writing, though it is a bit difficult to not come to the conclusion that you are only saying this to try and hurt me when you make annoyed comments o…[Read more]
If someone is making hurtful comments report them to Jun and then say what they said to you, but saying hurtful comments back to them will not help!
Andromeda took begrudging bites of the egg and bacon, trying very hard to stop her nose from wrinkling in disgust. Jackson sat happily beside her, his long legs leaning on hers under the table. His constant heater-like state was a wonderful comfort on the cold base of the school, also a wonderful distraction from the eggs.
OMG I LOVED THIS!
My favourite phrase was ‘His constant heater-like state was a wonderful comfort on the cold base of the school, also a wonderful distraction from the eggs.’ 🙂
Life at the Academy was odd, among other things. For many of the students, it was their first time off Earth, and for all of the students, it was the first time they were learning about things that didn’t have an answer yet. They were explorers in training, the first generation of a new kind of explorer, with a new kind of ship. T…[Read more]
“Do we have to do this at lunch?” Andromeda frowned, eyes trailing over the endless students who sat watching, lunch in hands. Most of them would normally spend lunch reading over notes, and some of them still did, occasionally glancing up at the group of students preparing for the obstacle course. Jackson shrugged.
“It’s like this…[Read more]
I had to join this group haha.
This is an awesome start Gwen, and I can’t wait to see if/where you take it next. I love the names of your characters too. The idea of the race is also quite cool. The only thing I noticed is that you repeat the word lunch frequently in a small concentration of sentences, if that makes sense. Just be careful of…[Read more]
oOp, didn’t realise that, but I’m glad you aren’t annoyed at me for tagging you lol
Ofc I’m not haha, I always smile when I see that you’ve mentioned me 😊.
aw thanks, well I’ve already posted the next chapter (bit too short to be a chapter but wahtever)
Yep I just read it, and I loved it. Yes, it’s on the short side, but the reader gets a sense of the characters a little more which is good.
Gwen, I admire your writing a ton… can you tag me for whatever you write?
Please tag me! This seems like a very interesting start, since you liked my suggestion to liking random phrases, here’s my favourite from this chapter:
‘She had never come last, or anything close to it, but yet, she was still worried. ‘
Oooh I quite like it. I’m curious about the races. Although I feel like I’ve kinda hopped into a story halfway through so I feel like I could use slightly more clarification on just the characters and setting in general but otherwise it’s great
Ah yes, I see. Personally, I think the chapter was fine, Gwen.
ITS HAPPENING THE MOVIE ITS HAPPENJNG NETFLIX MOVIE ORIGINALL OH LORD
only netflix?…. wait, nevermind I have netflix….. or do I? oh what am I thinking i do
Ok ok *takes deep breath* we need to get ready for the tons of newbies who will come because of this
It should come out to the public eventually! it would be so unfair if the only people that could watch it would be the ones with netflix!
Or you could just pay nine dollars to get a month of Netflix and watch it, that would be cheaper than going to cinema
I say it on my Instagram page and was like ‘wait is this a prank’ and then I saw the video and read the caption and was like ‘OMG WE ARE GOING TO GET A MOVIE!!!’ AHHHHH
I’m sort of a newbie to the site, but not to the books. I read the first one when it came out and has been doing the same since. I am SO EXCITED
O thats not really true for me i started reading the books during quarantine and am almost finshed with quests for glory
yeah I’m a fast reader I actually just finished it right after I posted that so yeah. I’ reading them on overdrive so I’m gonna ask my dad to get me the 5th book
🙂 all the books are pretty darn intense. and I can’t wait for the 6th book! but I also don’t know how their going to get cast in the lockdown
I’m dying from sheer happiness. This movie better become a hit. We’ll always be the OGs tho. Is there a release date? Years of nagging my friends to read the books and now the movie’s coming out :0
its ok. I don’t know what is means either PLEASE TELL US WHAT IT MEANS hmmmm… *me trying to figure it out without any help* hmmmmm…. you know what just tell us. PLS
Ahaha-I’m bad at explaining but I think it officially stands for someone whose been in ‘something’ (lets just say a fandom for arguments sake) for a long while. So, I was saying that all of us who have been in the SGE fandom for so long, before the movie comes out and before new fans come from watching the movie. Does that make sense?
if I had known this a year ago like I wld literally hv been screaming
I was hoping for open auditions but like if it’s Netflix there’s pretty much no way 🙁
you should still be happy theres a going to be a movie at all, don’t think it’s not worth your time just because you won’t be in it
I didn’t mean it like that Imao
I meannntt i was way more active last year and more obsessed w the books and everything acc
Tips for writers
How to get better at writing (generally):
I’d never be able to extensively answer that question, well that’s a lie, I’m too lazy to do it extensively. I’ll leave that up to the other writing advice columns.
The short answer is that there are three stages of growing as a writer (in my opinion) and most people will never get past…[Read more]
Hello! May I start righting my story now? Or are we all writing the same one
You can, we are not writing the same story. But most of us are writing about the SGE universe. I’ve included a guide incase you’re unsure where to start and if you’re new to this site.
Just start writing and we’ll guide you along the way. But if you’re unsure where to start just create a biography (bio) for your main character. The bio wou…[Read more]
Nice! I’m in the process of worldbuilding and plotting my story now, and I do have to start writing. I am a perfectionist so I cringe a lot whenever I write something.. Still writing more would help
Hi, I’m Lily. I’ve included a guide in case you’re new to this site. Don’t worry to much whether your story is perfect alright cause we all started as newcomers.
Just start writing and we’ll guide you along the way. But if you’re unsure where to start just create a biography (bio) for your main character. The bio would include name, age, sch…[Read more]
Oh wow, you only spent two years on the first stage. I’m pretty sure I was there for five years or something. I think I moved onto more serious writing when I got onto this site, but even then it took me a while to get invested.
hey @LILYSTARLING you really shouldn’t just give the newbie introduction to everyone in case they’re a newbie, it gets very tedious having the same very long comment on a bunch of posts
Thanks for this, it was very accurate and it’s nice of you to be so humble as to leave the last stage nameless. I just realised I haven’t been tagged, mainly because I forgot to ask you so is it okay if you can tag me 🙂
I was in the first stage for so many years of my childhood – I honestly really admire my younger self in my persistence, even though the writing was far from good, because I really enjoyed writing and I still do. It taught me how to appreciate writing, and even though I now have such a critical eye to my own work (I will never be pleased, it’s a…[Read more]
somewhat relate to that – I wrote my first book when I was, like, 5 (my mum has a copy of it and I read it and the title has LITERALLY NOTHING to do with the story- the title was ‘the snowman’ and it was about someone who was bored because he couldn’t go outside to play in the snow for some reason. XD) and now, 6-7 years later, I’m between stage…[Read more]
Haha, I used to constantly get all excited about writing a new story based off an idea I had…then got one chapter in, decided it was boring, and stuffed it into a drawer to never see the light of day again, until many years later where I can then laugh at it. It’s so cool how interests can change so drastically over time but still stay…[Read more]
The truth has never been spoken so clearly. I love to write “novels” in googles docs (which is reality are usually only one or two chapters long before I get to lazy to continue). Im probably I think right now I’m in the second stage, but I might advance because my dad has agreed to edit whatever stories I write <3
That’s not what I mean. I know how to edit my own stories, but he is like the person who suggests you add things to your story that makes it more interesting that I wouldn’t think of myself.
Yea… I’m not familiar with a lot of the terms writers use, so you’ll have to bear with me
you’re saying my writing is bad and I just don’t see that?
Because the second stage I described didn’t really have anything to do with quality, you could still have bad writing and be in that stage.
its also lowkey weird you say you’ve read a lot of my stuff but at the same time you joined today, wassup with dat?
hello! @/onlylovejaric, you may not be aware that this is extremely hurtful and disrespectful behavior. you will be reported to jun if you keep making these comments against gwen.
So, i’ve been playing around with a story idea in my mind but I have no idea where i want to take it. Main part is, I’m not sure if I want the story to focus more on the characters, or the world around the characters, if the story should mainly about the characters, or about some political battle. I dunno I’m feeling lost on where to go, so if an…[Read more]
I mean, Gwen, you’re great at everything, but I personally feel that you could do a really amazing like medieval-ish story because of the way you write stuff but idk that’s just my ide and suggestion
yeah but I’m more thinking about if the plot should be made by the characterization or if the plot is made by the situation. Like if you were to blurb my story, one would be summarised by the characters and their relations and the other would be summarised by the situation. I’m not sure if that makes sense
Oh, I’d love for you to do something revolving around a ‘political battle’. Just to understand what your saying in the above comment- an example of a ‘plot made by the situation’ could be ‘Romeo and Juliet'(I don’t know if you’d class it as political but whatever) as the plot is driven by the families feud-so a particular situation? Correct me if…[Read more]
“Can you hear me?”
The voice sliced through the night, bringing along a myriad of other noises. She was near a river, the sound of the water rushing felt as though it was pushing on her mind, the water flooding her brain. But she felt perfectly dry. She heard the gentle rummaging of nearby animals, the calm rat-tat-tat of a heart. Deer. She kne…[Read more]
Just your random, friendly user snooping in people’s activities.
Gwen, you definitely have a talent at engrossing your reader in your writing. The attention to detail is highly-admirable, I must say. Your descriptions are so vividly recounted that I can immediately picture the setting in my head without much effort on my own imagination…[Read more]
Ah, ofcourse-everyone needs that spoonful of romance in a book. I’m not much of a romantic-and neither do I write much of it but I certainly do love reading it!
