Re: Quick Quotes

This week's prompt is...

The moment in a sci-fi novel when a new world is discovered

For example
She saw swirling lights, lights that she soon realised were actually the passage of the sun across the sky, so fast it was a blur. The sun was going backwards.

Beautiful Buildings

I stayed with a friend for a couple of days this week and we decided to tour an 18th century country house that was about 20 minutes away from where she lived. It was absolutely beautiful and staggeringly big. There was a ballroom with a dome 62 feet high, a room lined in marble collumns (I'm not ev...

Re: A Hogwarts Education

Yeah, I have to agree that the education doesn't seem particularly well rounded (especially if you can't guarantee that kids will have learned the basics at home). I sometimes have fun matching up the Hogwarts subjects with muggle counterparts (potions for chemistry, transfiguration for maths/physic...

Re: Quick Quotes

This week's prompt is...
A line from a concert review

For example:
The doors were in constant banging, the stairs were never at rest, nothing was done without a clatter, nobody sat still, and nobody could command attention when they spoke.

Re: Pets

Hi Silvana! the recode of pets is still in the works so the prices haven't been confirmed yet. It's definitely a good time to start saving up your beans by earning points and taking part in the departments though as you'll need them to feed your pet as well.

Re: Top Points Winner of the Month 2019-20

We’re busy welcoming in the spring term! Before you race off to class to earn those house points though, we need to celebrate our top point earners from the last month of the Autumn Term.

If you’re a visual learner, you might choose to do some of these prompts ...

Character Development 1: The Sketch

You often have a very good idea of what a character looks like in your head. It can be a challenge to translate that to paper but if you’re a visual learner, it could really help. Even if you’re not, having a picture of your character is good motivation and a nice thing to prop up near your writing ...

Character Development 2: Characterful Collage

While it’s not necessary to know ‘everything’ about your character to write a convincing story about them, it can help you with consistency if you have a good sense of what makes them tick. While you probably aren’t going to be able to incorporate all of your characters likes and dislikes into the n...
