Workshop Prepwork Timeline
Alright, haha, so I also did this in the original post for JosephBlakeParker and of course I did it as ReishaTerrin and you can find it here. Not much has changed… well, no, that's not true things are always changing because this is part of my world building stage. I didn’t post the timeline before because of the format and there’s a bit much and it can get confusing. It’s still confusing, but a little more organized. This is a work-in-progress…
So to begin, the timeline in my story centers around a fictitious world—I’d like to have as High-fantasy, but I’m not opposed to the idea of having some science fiction elements to it if i can make it work— So really my time-line begins with a dying world. In this dying world, Humanity is nearly gone, the world/planet has suffered greatly of e

My Intorduction: 


My name I suppose is the first place any intorduction begins...

So hello. My name is Mystie Merys, though I go by ReishaTerrin and SheridanLightrose <--- though this name I plan to change in the near future. Why do I want to be a writer?

I want to pull them into a fictional world of wonder and adventure and I want to introduce them to characters that they can look up to, or learn from and even relate to on some level. I want

Karkadann's Chaos
Eastern Desert- Karkadann.
53 miles from the border of Coritrya.
Lord of the deserts Domain
February 16, year X516
The sun hung high overhead, bearing down with the sweltering heat of the mid-summer afternoon, worsened by the humid air that dragged past like a wet, cloying blanket. It was a vicious cycle that ceaselessly struck the terrain and the voyagers that marched below.
They broke camp and set fourth at daybreak, fifty in all, and General Jonathan Reynes leading them. It was an exceedingly slow day for the General. He had known that it would be. While his soldiers were fast and had incredible endurance, those traveling among them were civilians; men, women and children, many of who had never traveled longer then a day. And having had spent three passing through Karkadann, it proved to be far too long a ride, even if it had been peaceful with few incidents along the way.
They were venturing toward Coritrya; a small prospering village just on the other side of the bar

Now that we have our prep work done, it's time to start setting up the ups and downs of our plot.  Every plot needs to have an arc that is compelling and keeps the reader, well, reading.  The easiest way to make sure you have an intriguing arc is to create an outline and of course, submit it to the group for feedback.  Who else is going to be able to point out your plot holes?  :giggle:  We're also going to be working on plot premise for your novel as well as your characters in order to ensure that you have well rounded and believable characters that your readers will be able to relate to.  Now, to the serious bits, your tasks.
Your First Task
Plot premises are very important, not just so you can relate the story concept to your reader, but also, so you know what path each character is going to take in the journey of your novel.  You'll start off by making a list of your characters (protagonist, antagonist and supporting characters)

Workshop: Prep Work
There are two types of novel writers.  Planners and Pantsers.  Here at GreenBat-Tutorials, we cater to planners and that's what this workshop is all about.  It's time to create your world's timeline and make all the maps and legends you'll need as references during the writing process.  Both of these can seem like daunting tasks, we know, but being prepared will help you out down the road when you've lost that initial gung-ho motivation. 
Your timeline of events prior to the start of the novel give you the rich history of the world you're writing in.  Even though some or most of the information you're creating will not show up in your finished novel, this timeline will give your world, its characters and eventually your plot a realism you can't create with words alone.
Maps, legends and even the dreaded character sheets (if you use them) help you to cultivate the story.  They put you inside the world you're creating and may make you second guess a pl

GreenBat Workshop Introduction
GreenBat-Tutorials Workshop Task #1
Introduction
   Hello my name is Blaine and I am the Owner/ Editor in Chief for Superior Story, a literary editing and consulting business. Mr. Parker mentioned that he was looking for a few more pairs of eyes to help evaluate work being submitted, so I have volunteered to join the fray. I will also be completing many of the tasks along with everyone so we can work together and have fun.
   I have been writing since 2003 and editing for over three years now. I became a writer by accident. I never set out to become one when I started, and I wasn't even a hobbyist until my high school freshmen English teacher gave us an assignment to write something for sixty pages. I had never really enjoyed writing before that, and I started off rather begrudgingly. Somewhere in those sixty pages I found that I really enjoyed created worlds from nothing, and I was hooked.

GreenBat Workshop Introduction and Chapter Rewrite
Who I am, what I do
I am known under many names. Most call me "Leon" though - "Pang" occasionally when those who address me do not know my real identity. Germany is my place of birth and residence. But my true home is probably the internet. Last year I started American Studies in my local university. The results have been fairly satisfying so far. I may add that, though I am studying literature, writing in fact is not my sole passion. I do quite enjoy drawing and animating as well which is why I consider studying these skills, too.
My writing lais the fundament on which my visual works are based on. It is the stem that carries the beautiful bloom of my creative existence one could say… if one wanted to exaggerate a little bit. I write because it is the fastest and most fundamental part of creating a narrative and because it can be built on in any way imaginable.
Writing is only limited by language and speaking of which, I am still not satisfied with my kno

ACWAN Exercise 1.2
So I've been working on this forever and had nothing to show for it until a few hours ago. Basically this post will sort of just give the jist of what I did for the exercise, as well as the actual exercise.
So for the exercise you're supposed to basically rewrite a chapter of your favourite book and edit it. The book I chose was The Magician's Land by Lev Grossman. It's the third book in my favourite series, and I'd definitely recommend checking out the Magicians trilogy. Anyways, I was already like two thirds through the book, but I decided to restart reading it and took notes. I mainly just took notes on character development and story rather than actual grammar and writing style, but rereading it still helped keep that style fresh in my mind. When I finished the book, I realized that I didn't know which chapter to rewrite cause I wanted it to be one I could just put up on here while making sense to someone who's never read the book. I also wanted to fins something

Workshop: Introductions
When we decided to launch this workshop, there was one thing in the back of our heads that we knew needed to be accomplished before we could jump into talking about writing.  The participants need to know each other and care about giving feedback to each other.
Throughout this process, we're all going to be working close together and giving feedback on each others' submissions.  We know it can be a big scary world out there, especially when you don't know who any one is, so the first task is to break the ice.
If you've been following JosephBlakeParker's journals, you'll know he starts out with an introduction not only to you but also to your story.  We're going to start in the same place.

Hey there. So you might know me as ReishaTerrin because this is my main (goof around) account. I post things there such as Fanfictions, MMD projects, Blender Projects, and just chat. This is my second Account made specially for updates of my Novel, which is name less at the moment, but I'll be posting related work to it here.

Why? Well, my other account (or any accounts) under the name of ReishaTerrin are basically my goof around accounts where I post random stuff or fun related stuff so share. I wanted to keep the two separate and it was getting kinda jumbled and so I moved my Novel related stuff here.

If this account oddly interests you, and you would like to check out my other stuff i will post some links below.

Fictionpress this is the place where the stories will also be uploaded should anything happen to either one of my accounts.

So to begin, the timeline in my story centers around a fictitious world—I’d like to have as High-fantasy, but I’m not opposed to the idea of having some science fiction elements to it if i can make it work— So really my time-line begins with a dying world. In this dying world, Humanity is nearly gone, the world/planet has suffered greatly of eons of abuse and war and disasters mainly at the hand of humans (because humans are disgusting creatures: Personal opinion, sorry.) The original world is dying and the goddess/deity of that, Palia abandoned it to its own destruction. Palia’s daughter Morgiana (I might change the name later) give the world new life with in a realms of her own creation and adopts it as her child, saving what remaining life she could. The difference of this new world is that more species and creatures exist and the darkness that ultimately was part of the previous world is still there.

For the map part. Well… I’ve never done a map before. Haha. *insert overly dramatic music here* But, it’s true I have never done a map but I’ve always like the idea of doing one because I like a visual outline but…. I’ve never done one so I’m not really sure if i even did it right. I had help with it. (my beautiful friend Sam helped me) but as you can tell looking at it, it’s not done and it just an outline of continents So this was… is a fun first time for me(and Sam). SO I hope it correct.

My Intorduction: 


My name I suppose is the first place any intorduction begins...

So hello. My name is Mystie Merys, though I go by ReishaTerrin and SheridanLightrose <--- though this name I plan to change in the near future. Why do I want to be a writer? I love to write and express myself. A while back JoesphBlakeParker had an excercise that had a similar question so it's been awhile but you can find it here ACWAN 1.1, I can't say to much has changed about why I want to write. I still want to be a writer who brings intense emotion to my readers. I want to pull them into a fictional world of wonder and adventure and I want to introduce them to characters that they can look up to, or learn from and even relate to on some level. I want to create stories that are fun and just draw the reader into a point they feel as though they are apart of the journey (like I always feel when I read a fantastic book) and not just along for the ride (thought that's not a bad thing to accomplish either!). When I read a book from a writer I love and I feel that I'm right there alongside the protagonist and their struggle, pain, happiness and then in the end when their journey is over and I feel exhausted as if i'd just experienced it for myself? That the kind of feeling of emotion I want to accomplish in my writing and give to my readers. 


For years (since middle school) I've had this idea for a novel in my head and scribbled around all over the place. I'm now 27 years old and the idea just won't go away and I want to bring it to life. even if it takes another 27 years I will do it. Everyday is a learning experiance. 
But I can't do it alone. I write everyday. Pratice everything I learn though fanfictions, to me what better way to pratice?

You learn by writing short stories. Keep writing short stories. The money’s in novels, but writing short stories keeps your writing lean and pointed.
– Larry Niven


I am in no means the best writer, I don't even think I'm a good writer, yet. You can ask Mr. JosephBlakeParker or Mr. Blain Bradshaw of the many question I ask each of them. I can say that while I am not the best of writers and still have a lot to learn, every day I am learning and it will be thanks to  Mr. JosephBlakeParker, Mr. Blain Bradshaw and the people of this workshop in the guidance of beccoming one step closer to being better writer. 

It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.
– Ernest Hemingway

Next? What is the Genre of the Novel i'll be working on? Well assuming it's just like JosephBlakeParker threw at us on his lesson of this:


Even though it's not really a Genre, but it is to me because it's what i'm into reading: Lgbt Fantasy adventure


What is the intensity of your novel?


Middle intensity? I'd say possible 
Young Adult and up. The Fantasy elements are very similar to High fantasy. The world my novel takes place in is fake, made up there are more then just the human race and Magic is a big part of the world. There will be violent situations, death, sexual tension even among same sex genders (my protagonist is a backwards woman-girl who like girls-) and there will be other adult themes. Its a world of adventure possible told from more then one POV <-- this isn't decided yet.   


What is the conflict of my novel? 


A basic good vs evil cliche, all though the adventure is more character driven then action. (though I hope to do justice to the action parts as well) One of the main elements is of the Protagonist and her obsession with obtaining her freedom, while being pulled into the bigger plot of evil schemes. She learns about herself and is forced to overcome many struggles, and learn to control this power in her she's uncovered while she fights for what she wants (Freedom). There will be love and loss and beautiful betrayal! It all comes with adventure 


Am I writing a Comedy or a Tragedy?

Tragedy there will be survival, but there will be loss



Chapter Rewrite


Nightshade by Shea Godfrey


So I chose to do a scene/Excerpt from this book because of all the books I've been reading lately, this one is still at the top of my love list. Why? Because in my view point it was an introduction book/saga/of the series. In the first book, "Nightshade" You meet the Characters and a bit of their world. And I chose this because it's similar of what I want to do and the the two protagonists are female's who fall inlove and both of them want a sort of freedom: One from of the life she's expeceted to adopt be play role too, and the other freedom to be open and about who she is and free to love who she's wants. I chose this book for educational purposes and writing practice. I’m not trying to improve the book in any way I love the way Shea Godfrey writes. This excercise was exprememly diffcult to do!

Orginal text


Darry ran, her bare feet sure within the thick grass despite the morning dew. She rushed through the hedgerows of the gardens at a rapid pace. The air burning her lungs felt good. Darry tasted the sharpness of the hedges with each breath. Their scent fill the back of her head and flooded her with the flavor of new things.


She bolted down a separate path near the heart of the main gardens, never stopping, pushing herself faster. She laughed, breathless as she ducked her head and broke through the corner of a hedge in a sharp turn, leaves flying in her wake. She could smell the water.


Jessa walked along the edges of the clearing in the clear early morning sun. She trailed her hand through the Ivy and Verdant leave of the hedge. The small white flowers of hamesroot were in the full bloom and tangled within the branches, teasing her fingers and stirring her sense of touch.


The bluish-green water of the pond was set within the small glade, the land it occupied low within the center of a natural depression and fed by a spring near the eastern edge.


It was a place of serenity and undeniable beauty, the colors rich and fulfilling, and as jessa moved along the southern hedges, she wondered how deep the water might be at the center. When summer was high in Lynoness and the heat at times unbearable in its arid oppression, the mosaic tiles on the bottom of the reflecting pool in the western courtyard of the jade palace showed, bereft of water. The comparison appalled her.


The Princess Darrius burst into the clearing in a rage of movement and Jessa stumbled into the solid presence of the hedge. She spoke the runes of her spell upon sheer instinct, the Veil of shadows rising like a surge of heat erupting from the earth.


This was very hard to do. Because I love it the way it was. I only did little little changes, like of how i would have written it. I hope that’s what we were supposed to do :( Also.. I hope and tried hard to catch any erros when I was typeing this up from the orginal text. But I'm only human...

Darry ran, rushing through the hedgerows of the gardens as fast as her legs would allow, her bare feet wet with the morning dew. The air burning her lungs felt good and there was this taste, a sharpness of the hedges that filled her lungs with each breath, filling the back of her head with the flavor of new things.


She bolted down a separate path near the heart of the main gardens, never stopping, pushing herself faster. She laughed, breathless as she ducked her head and broke through the corner of a hedge in a sharp turn, leaves flying in her wake. She could smell the water.


Jessa walked along the edge of the clearing that early morning, trailing her hand through the Ivy and Verdant leaves of the hedge. The small white flowers of hamesroot were in bloom, tangled within the branches, tickling her fingers beneath her touch.


She peered out towards the pond, at the bluish-green water set within a small glade, the land it occupied was low within the center of a natural depression, fed by the spring near the eastern edge.


It was a place of serenity and undeniable beauty, the colors rich and fulfilling, and as Jessa moved along the southern hedges, she wondered how deep the water might be at the center. When summer was high in Lynoness and the heat at times unbearable in its arid oppression, the mosaic tiles on the bottom of the reflecting pool, in the western courtyard of the jade palace, showed a bereft of water. The comparison appalled her.


Princess Darrius burst into the clearing in a rage of movement. Jessa stumbled into the solid presence of the hedge, speaking the runes of her spell upon sheer instinct. The Veil of shadows rose over her, like a surge of heat erupting from the earth.




The Protagonist
This is one of the main Protagonists of the Novel I'm currently writing. I didn't put her name because I'm struggling with a final choice of one. Later I'll post a link to her Profile page.
