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.

‘Not Perfect, But Still…” by primadonna_girl – A Storybird Review


Not Perfect, But Still…untitled
by primadonna_girl
Format: Picture Book
Age range: Tween (8-12)
Published: May 31st, 2014
Artist: Various

Not Perfect, But Still… is a beautiful story about loving who you are. It gives a wonderful message: beauty lies inside who you are, not what you look like. The story is in first-person, and is narrated by a friend of the protagonist, Fiona. Fiona feels that she is not as beautiful as other girls, while the narrator assures her that the others are jealous of who she really is, and care about nothing but looking “good”. The story ends with Fiona being convinced and walking away with a smile.

I enjoyed this book, because it gives a very strong, inspiring message which should be taught to more females in our society. It could have been made better by using more relevant artwork, but then, it’s quite hard to find artwork which matches perfectly when you’re writing a picture book
