The crown prince of the Fire Dragons, Ember, who is subtly working behind the scenes to change the laws, but has gotten four servants killed already and his servant Crystal, who has made a secret vow to keep her kind safe, even if it means selling out Ember to his father.

I have it on a google doc if you'd like to read what I've got so far, I'm 11k words in and by the time nano rolls in I'll probably be starting with 12k

Oooh sure!
And so does that mean your story will end up being 62k words instead since previously written content doesn't apply?

I admire your diligence. XD I've never been able to complete nanowrimo.
Did you enter last year? And I'll read after my D&D game. xD

The month is halfway over, so don't forget about doing your Afflatus submissions - form or posted on the thread! Additionally, please, please, please fill this survey out so that we can get a good representation of what you guys want in the Afflatus or see if you guys have any ideas that are surely way better than mine! Even if you don't participate in the Afflatus that much or actively, take the survey! Is there something you want to see that would get you to partake in that? Whatever it may be, let us know! It's completely anonymous, but remember to be respectful :) It's completely up to you if you wanna sign your user!

i don't read the Afflatus tbh, and i've never made a submission for anything pertaining to it lmao. i barely read my schools news, actually i have never read it. i'm such a great student lmao. shows how interested i am in journalism.

i don't participate in writing contests and all that jazz, but i got like mad muse after i finally got over my horrible practically month long migraine, and i had an awesome fantasy short story idea o3o

CALLING ALL ANIMATORS!

Are you an animator looking for your next project? Are you learning how to animate and need some more practice?

Whatever your skill level, I've got something for you to look into:

The world, of MAPs.

Multi-Animator Projects are animations done by groups of people of all skill levels, telling a story to the tune of a song.
Currently, I'm hosting one, and I could use some help, the fandom is Minecraft: Story Mode, and the song is Ready as I'll Ever Be, from Tangled: the Series.

Even if you haven't played Story Mode, or aren't interested in Minecraft in General, I ask that you at least look it over, and think about it. One of my best friends is going to be helping out, and she actually asked me how to enable Story Mode in normal minecraft xD (Story Mode is a spin-off game ;) )

The parts currently taken are:: 1, 5, 7, 8, and 14. Parts that haven't been confirmed taken but are being talked about are 4 and 9

Here's the video, if interested you can contact me here, on Youtube (Savannah T) or Savannahthecaracal@gmail.com
I hope to hear from you guys soon :D

Any of you guys doing Nano this year?!

I also wanted to say - I noticed that Amaranthines don’t participate in the afflatus much and you guys might consider changing that! It’s a fantastic way to earn points and I see as many as 400 earned by a single house sometimes!
