But the taps did not stop at the first row of the pew. They did not stop at the midway point either, where Mrs. Davis sat, nor did the heels stop their rhythmic tapping when they reached the front. Father James even heard his coworker, Father Anthony, shuffle closer to himself and away from the tapping. Blinking, eyebrows furrowed at his colleague's behavior, the Father turned. At the bottom of the steps that lead to the speaker's podium stood a young woman.
The last to notice her, Father James put down the bibles he had been organizing and walked the same path she had. He nodded to Mrs. Davis, her unknown thoughts filled with disdain

"Going... on a...." Arun paused at the next word, unsure of how to pronounce it, "Be.. back... later."
The burgundy-haired boy brought the note close to his face and focused directly on the word that he had skipped.
"Dah-tee?" Arun guessed. He repeated the word a few times out loud before he realized what it was.
"Date!!" He exclaimed.
He paused for a moment, and the happiness of accomplishing his goal of reading the note quickly faded into dread.
"Wait, that means you're gone for the day??" Arun gasped and the note slipped from his hands.
He dashed back into the television room where he and the other mermen slept. The small boy snatched up another piece of paper that was on the bed.
"So you're ALL leaving me then??" Arun complained as he read the note again that was writt
The soap operas couldn't do anymore. They were getting boring and predictable. Kyle flipped the channels, looking desperately for something to watch. Finally he turned it to CNN, and then ESPN, his last two choices. It was a slow, boring news day, go figure, and Sportscenter wasn't on now anymore, replaced by the new baseball season. Baseball.
I get in the bathroom and do all the human essentials to start off the day. I brushed my teeth vigorously to avoid any plaque since I don’t want a repeat of last year. I shivered from the thought. I’m not scared of the dentist, but let’s just say that you should always brush your teeth kids. If only I started to listen to that sooner…
I got in the shower and allowed my body to soak under the hot water that continuously rained down. Making sure to rinse every nook and cranny of my body. I applied the same soap I used for my body and squirted some in my hair. Good thing for those two in one soaps that were for bo
• It’s been done before: Lots of people will tell you that no matter what you write, it’s been done before. But while this is true to some extent, it isn’t what you think. So much creativity gets hindered and discouraged when people basically tell you that no matter how hard you try, you’ll never come up with anything original. And that couldn’t be further from the truth. Whether or not it’s a struggle for you, it’s always worth it to come up with your own unique and original idea not based off anything else. I’m going to show you an example of just why originality is not dead. The following paragraph can be interpreted in a variety of different ways.
• In-story example: The world was wide open but KD often felt trapped. KD was a tall brunette with long hair, and sun-tanned skin save a few silvery skin scars from events in the not too distant past. Echoes of voices could be heard about, but they never got
Hello again! It's been a while, but I'm back with another writer's guide. As always, I should remind you that I'm not a professional and everything here is just my own thoughts and opinions. Please keep that in mind!
As with normal life, stories often have romantic relationships. Sometimes the characters are together before the story even begins, and sometimes the characters get together throughout the course of the story. Either way, here are some tips and notes on your character's relationships!
The Evil Girlfriend-That-Must-Go
Scenario: Mary really wants to go out with Jon, but Jon's evil girlfriend Elizabeth is in the way.
It's really easy to write about how evil Elizabeth is, especially if you're writing from Mary's point of view. Of course she's evil! She's in the way to Mary's happy relationship. Ri
The mother of Courtney Van Haders leaned away from the sink, peeking out into the hallway just as her daughter closed the garage door behind her. She was only able to catch a glimpse of the younger woman's long, curly chocolate-brown hair. She heaved out a deep sigh.
Her beloved child was more than halfway through her junior year in college already. It wouldn't be too much longer before she would graduate, find herself a nice little job, and eventually move out of the house. The last thing she wanted was for her daughter, the oldest of her three children, to have to leave the family home. She wasn't always around at home to watch the boys or to take care of the house, and Courtney proved ample help in that regard as well. The money obtained from both her (the mother's) work and her husband's was more than enough to provide for Courtney and her two younger brothers Jacob and Steven. Courtney didn't need to
"Well, fuck...I've really been putting on alot of weight lately."
Indeed, over the past month or so, ever since that fateful feast cooked by her coddling mother, Courtney's body had been steadily increasing in size. Not a single thing about her had retained the appearance of 'thinness' it once had. Although her stomach only became immensely large when binging, all of the food she had digested and absorbed calories from was taking the toll, granting her a delightfully chubby frame.
The rather average-sized breasts of Courtney's past had blossomed forth into a new cup size, F-cup to be exact. Her arms and legs had become thicker in width, coated with a jiggling softness. Her face was rounder and more fleshed out, and her cheeks had a tint of redness to them. Puffy love-handles poured over the sides of her panties, giving her a luscious muffin-top. Her
Courtney wasn't sure how much more she could take in before the negative effects started to kick in. However, as soon as she bite into another chicken wing, all of those worries immediately vanished into the pit of her engorged stomach, crushed underneath the oncoming piles of food. This waterfall of tasty treats seemed like it was going on forever, and Courtney wished for that to actually be true. One of the straps of her bra let out a pier
"Don't worry, don't worry. It's getting close...just take a right turn here, and go down about three blocks, and then make two lefts..."
Courtney Van Haders breathed out a low hiss through clenched teeth. Her stomach was growling like a wild beast, her car only had enough gas for a few more trips before needed to be filled again, and it was taking way longer than she had expected to reach the location of this mysterious fat-girls club. Denise, who sat in the passenger's seat, was clear in her instructions, but she had never mentioned that it would be such a lengthy drive. At this point, Courtney was going to miss all of her other classes for the day. There was also the fact that she needed to pick up her brothers from school later that day, too.
"Hey, what is this private club of yours called, anyway?"
"We just went for the name 'Chubby Club' since it's simple and a good explanation for wh
'C'mon, guys, you better win this...'
Suddenly, the door to her left swung open with a bang. Becky's father, as tower-like and imposing as ever, stepped inside, followed closely behind by a shorter, very pudgy young fellow. He had a crew-cut hair style, and as he spoke, his bulging double chin wobbled in rhythm. It took Chelsey a number o
• REALISM: A lot of stories tend to seem shallow and as I elaborate in this guide more, I’m sure you’ll see why. People tend to like to throw something together without putting the actual depth into it to make it great. This has nothing to do with rushing or time spent on the story at all—it has to do with people’s writing styles at the most basic level. Be aware of the phrases you’re using and what they imply. Don’t just settle for a phrase that’s been used before a million times. Add your own unique spin on it. If you’re trying to show the different moods of your story, use words in such a way that they make the reader think a bit more and imply deeper messages.
• LITTLE THINGS: Small unique details regarding your setting or characters or their emotions will definitely strike the reader in some way, usually in a good way. For example if I say, in the hospital, “Wenn is wearing an orange
Hannah cocked an eyebrow. "Excuse me? You're not daring to imply that you believe she is actually dead, are you?"
"What? No, I'm talking about that big smile on her face even though she's unconscious." Courtney replied. Indeed, it was true that Kailey was wearing a giddy look as she laid asleep on the cot. Becky's father was busy preparing a warm, wet cloth to put on her head, trying to cool her down.
"I guess now that the pain has gone away, she's just feeling happy from being so full," Denise suggested. "I suppose, if anything, that's a big relief. She'll be alright."
Courtney wiped a chubby hand across her forehead, breathing a sigh. "I'm so glad! I hadn't expected her to faint like that..."
"Of course, I knew she would be fine all the time!" Hannah exclaimed with a hint of nervousness in her voice.
"Nah, you were freaking out, thinking she had choked or something, right?" chuckled Cou
• ADVENTURE: Keep things interesting, change it up, take your reader places, keep the story rolling, show the passage of time…all can be accomplished through a series of changes in scenery and objective—adventure. Using the same three settings for your story’s scenes over and over can be pretty boring. Keep taking us to new places and flood our senses with details that keep us wondering what will happen next.
• INTENSITY: Things may start slow or you might want to just get right to the point. Spice up the intensity. One moment, the characters are just sitting by the shore and the next, they are being attacked by zombie pirates and a battle ensues. Have the intensity go up and down over the course of the story; think of it like waves or a rollercoaster. Too much of either extreme can get boring. Chaos is a great element to throw in there, but also show order. Show a fluctuation of things, and how they came to be, as well as
