What does Storybird Mean to You? -#2


Here’s this week’s dose of “What Storybird Means to Me”! Thank you everyone for your contributions! Keep a lookout for this post every Monday! 🙂

No more than 7 quotes per week, so if it doesn’t make it to the blog this week, it WILL make it in the upcoming weeks. I have made a book specially for all your quotes to be posted under: click here to read the Storybird. Have a look at this week’s:

primadonna_girl: I feel as if Storybird is a special and unique way to not just write stories, but to make friends that will last forever.

cookie54lover: Storybird is my life. Storybird’s there for me when I need to get feelings out; whether they be anxiety or ecstasy. I can write freely, I can write without having a purpose; I can write because I want to write, I can write because I can, I can write because I enjoy to write. The community is awesome sauce. Everyone is so supportive and caring. I can immediately go to Storybird if I have any problems I want to talk about and a large group of people will turn up supporting me without judgement. And members are always remembered and always missed when they depart.

There are so many different ways to frame your creativity. It can even be an inspirational comment. Or it could be a picture book that makes it’s way to Featured.

To me, Storybird is a gift.

mbjett: To me, Storybird is a place to share my creativity with others who also have a wild imagination. There is awesome artwork on Storybird, and they help me get inspiration. Storybird is an amazing website, and I’m glad that I found it! People of all ages can enjoy this site, and I can’t find one reason for people to dislike it! It’s too good to be true!

Love_Peace_Hope: Storybird is the best gift possible that the creators created. I joined storybird the day after my 17th birthday, and I already fell in love with it 5 minutes after. Storybird is an amazing place, and everyone needs to be here. Storybird is the BEST, PLACE, EVER.

FromDust: Storybird means so much to me. It’s an escape, a place to connect with other writers, grab inspiration, get rid of writer’s block. Somehow writing on Storybird is so much easier for me than everywhere else. I feel more free. It’s definitely one of my favourite stops on the Internet, because I fit in and I can be who I am. Storybird, for me, is a place where I can unwind, and a place where I can really be me.

firstredhead12: To me, Storybird is a place where I can let my creative spirit frolic wherever it so desires. A place where writers from all over the world can connect. A place where friendships are made. A place where I can just be…me. Storybird is a part of my life that I will never, ever forget. No matter how far I go or even where on the path of life- my Storybird family will always be close to my heart.

Forever and always. ❤

Sweet_Pea: Storybird is my rainbow amidst the storm that we call life. In my deepest sorrows, I can turn to Storybird for a guaranteed smile. It’s a place so perfect that it seems to be a fantasy. All in one place I can finally release my imaginations so they mold into stories, read endless books by people like me, and meet some of my best friends. Storybird is definitely the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Once, there lived a writer, known throughout the lands as (1)____________. This writer was seized by inspiration one July, and struck out to tell the tale of one known only as “The (2)____________ One.”

The first two weeks were full of wonder. Fueled by (3)____________, the writer generated conflicts like vast thunderstorms, and characters so real they jumped off the page only to (4)____________ you right in the face. (5)____________, now aware of the crucial role they played in this writer’s story-spinning, swelled with pride and told the writer, “(6)____________.”

Alas, not all was so rosy. After hitting (7)____________, the writer remembered their last pang of doubt. What if they became blocked once again? What if their story was silly? Maybe… maybe it would be better to stop. They looked into the mirror, and the face they saw seemed almost (8)____________.

At the writer’s darkest moment, a/an (9)____________ voice arose. “Hey, you can do this,” it said. “If you don’t, how will we ever find out what happens to (10)____________? I don’t want to live in a world with that kind of empty hole. Don’t stop now.”

The writer nodded, saying “(11)____________! No matter how far away from my word-count goal I am, I promise to write for at least (12)____________ a day.”

With that, a rainbow sprang across the sky like a (13)____________ racing toward the newest novel by (14)____________. The world seemed to hold its breath, waiting for the writer’s next sentence. The writer smiled, took a deep breath, and wrote “(15)____________…”

Here’s mine:

Once, there lived a writer, known throughout the lands as Lady Wasp. This writer was seized by inspiration one July, and struck out to tell the tale of one known only as “The Suspicious One.”

The first two weeks were full of wonder. Fueled by deep-fried oreos, the writer generated conflicts like vast thunderstorms, and characters so real they jumped off the page only to follow you right in the face. Nabisco, now aware of the crucial role they played in this writer’s story-spinning, swelled with pride and told the writer, “You’re one of the Okays.”

Alas, not all was so rosy. After hitting 8543 words, the writer remembered their last pang of doubt. What if they became blocked once again? What if their story was silly? Maybe… maybe it would be better to stop. They looked into the mirror, and the face they saw seemed almost careless.

At the writer’s darkest moment, a/an pretty voice arose. “Hey, you can do this,” it said. “If you don’t, how will we ever find out what happens to Esther? I don’t want to live in a world with that kind of empty hole. Don’t stop now.”

The writer nodded, saying “I found it! Finally! No matter how far away from my word-count goal I am, I promise to write for at least an hour a day.”

With that, a rainbow sprang across the sky like a centaur racing toward the newest novel by J.K. Rowling or Rick Riordan. The world seemed to hold its breath, waiting for the writer’s next sentence. The writer smiled, took a deep breath, and wrote “Once upon a time, I wandered into a forest…”
