TWN Special Surprise/Opportunity Celebrating over 100 Followers & Almost 1 Year Blogiversary

Well, dear readers this is THE moment you have ALL been waiting for! TWN’s surprise celebrating over 100 followers and almost a full year of blogging. (Note: Our one year blogiversary doesn’t *technically* happen until July 31st, but since what we’re doing is REALLY huge, we thought it’d be best to lump it all into one.) BUT BEFORE YOU CONTINUE READING THIS POST PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO FIRST!!!! (Video credit: made by Issabelle.)ย 

Hehehe, you’re probably wondering what that video above means. Weeelllll . . . that’s our exciting SURPRISE!!!!!!! *crickets chirping* “And what is it?” you ask.

The surprise is . . .

drum roll, please . . .

TEEN WRITERS’ NOOK IS HOSTING OUR FIRST EVER WRITING(ISH) CONTEST(ISH)!!!!!!!!!!!! Pretty cool, amiright?! Basically, we’re putting together a collection of short stories and poems (that will actually be published, EEEKKKK) and we want to feature YOUR writing!! So below we have a list of guidelines and how this is gonna work, but basically after you’ve written your fantabulous story/poem, you’ll submit it to us. And then we’ll review all the work and, depending on the number of submissions we get, we’ll choose the best. The ones picked will go through about three rounds of edits: developmental edits, line edits, copy edits. (Well you get the picture.๐Ÿ˜‰) All the short stories and poems will be compiled into a purchasable book.

This collection/anthology (eh, whatever you wanna call it) contest is our way of showing our gratitude and appreciation for our readers!!!!!! (We love you guys and cannot thank you enough for all your support!!!!!! Y’all are the BEST!!!!!!!) 

This collection/anthology will be titled, Imagine: A Collection of Short Stories and Poems by the TWN Family.


~Amazon e-gift card. (Well, this just depends on if we’re able to do it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

~A publication opportunity


~Fame in the Teen Writers’ Nook community. 

Here are the guidelines for your writing entry:

  1. This contest is for TWNโ€™s followers/readers/commenters (โ€˜cause some of you might read and comment but not actually follow us).
  2. Your entry can be a short story, poem, or narrative nonfiction. And if you want your story/poem/nonfiction piece to have Christian themes and elements, that is perfectly acceptable. ๐Ÿ™‚ We want to include stories that showcase the different writing styles of each of our readers. Basically, just write what you want to write.
  3. Your entry can NOT be previously published. This also means that your entry can not be something that was posted on your blog or any social media form (this counts as previously published).
  4. Word maximum: 5,000 words
  5. Your entry MUST be clean. What we mean by this is that your story can not have any foul language/cuss words and also cannot take Godโ€™s name in vain even in the form of acronyms. However, you may say if a character โ€œcursed.โ€ Itโ€™s just that actually stating the word or even the first part of it will remove you from our consideration list. Your story may have romance (kisses, hand-holding, etc.) but any immoral content even if it is only implied will remove your story from our consideration list. Your story also cannot be overly gory/graphic, but mild violence is allowed. If you have any concerns or questions over what is and is not allowed, please feel free to contact us. ANY STORY THAT DOES NOT ADHERE TO THESE CONTENT GUIDELINES WILL BE DELETED IMMEDIATELY AND REMOVED FROM OUR CONSIDERATION LIST.
  6. Your storyโ€™s main characters MUST be between ages 12-19.
  7. When your story is complete and ready to submit, fill out this Google form and attach it as a document in the space provided. Note: if you are having trouble sending your manuscript through the form, please contact us. 
  8. Please write your story in American style so everything can be uniformed (e.g., โ€œfavoriteโ€ instead of โ€œfavouriteโ€).
  9. Your story must be typed in Times New Roman or Arial, 12 point font, double spaced.
  10. You must have your story submitted before June 30th at midnight EST, anything submitted after this will be deleted without reading.
  11. Your story will be judged blindly, so you cannot have your name anywhere on the document, including in the documentโ€™s title name. Instead, on the next page at the end of your story, please include a short author bio in third person, where you can state your name.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out to TWN at any time. If you follow these rules, then everything should go well and smoothly! ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, have FUN writing!!!! We want you to be excited and to enjoy this contest!

Again, THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH to all of y’all for every bit of support you have given us along the way, no matter how small. It means more to us than words can ever express, and we hope you’ll enjoy this special opportunity. THANK YOU INFINITY TIMES OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *sends lotsa chocolate*

      I'm glad you liked it!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Ally M.J.

        Lol my creative mind is the problem. I canโ€™t make things happen quickly, especially things like romance or character arcs. Iโ€™m obsessed with character arcs. And overly complicated characters. But I can do it, Iโ€™m sure! ํ™”์ดํŒ…!

        • Katherine

          I know what ya mean, girl! Sometimes I feel like my creative mind ain’t working right. And character arcs are pretty hard for me. Ooh, I do love those complicated characters!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I know you can do it, girl!!!!!!! I believe in you!!!!! You’re an AWESOME writer!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Also, I’m AMAZED!!!๐Ÿ˜ฎ How did you get those symbols in a comment?)

          • Ally M.J.

            What, ํ™”์ดํŒ…? I just use the Korean keyboard if Iโ€™m on a handheld device or this add-on thingy thing thing on the computer. Itโ€™s pretty cool, actually, Iโ€™m learning Korean. Like your name would be ์บ์„œ๋ฆฐ (kae-teo-rin) and my name would be ์•Œ๋ฆฌ

            • Katherine

              Ooh, COOL!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I guess I didn’t realize there was such thing as a Korean keyboard. XD That sounds awesome!!!!! Girl, you’re learning Korean?!?!?! That’s INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I want to learn multiple languages! Maybe I should learn Korean?๐Ÿค” Really?? That’s my name?? THAT IS SO COOL!!!!!!!! Yep, I definitely want to learn Korean now!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ AWESOME!!!!!!!

              • Ally M.J.

                Yeah itโ€™s pretty much the same as the English keyboard but with Hangul.
                ์บ์„œ๋ฆฐ is pronounced โ€œKae-tuh-rin* because eo (์–ด) makes an uh sound
                If you want I can give you a Korean name ๐Ÿ˜€

                • Katherine

                  Ooh, okay!!!! That’s pretty cool!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
                  Awesome!!!! I didn’t know that. Wooo, NOW I KNOW HOW TO SAY MY NAME IN KOREAN!!!!!!!๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much!!!!!
                  Oooh, YES YES YES PLEASE!!!!!!!! I’d LOVE THAT!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

                  • Ally M.J.

                    Ok ok letโ€™s see… hmm
                    Itโ€™s Kim Kyung-Hwa in the English alphabet. Kim is a surnamed.
                    From Sino-Korean ไบฌ (gyeong) meaning “capital city” or ๆ•ฌ (gyeong) meaning “respect, honour” combined with ๅ’Œ (hwa) meaning “harmony, peace”. Other hanja combinations can form this name as well. (From behindthename.com)
                    Not sure what gives me authority to give someone a Korean name, because Iโ€™m not Korean, but whatever lol

                    • Katherine

                      OooOoooOooo, that so COOL!!!!!!! Thank you!!!! Wow!!!! that’s amazing with those different meanings!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Hehe, I’m getting really interested in the Korean language!!!๐Ÿ˜‰) Ooh, I’m TOTALLY checking that site out!!!!!! I like studying name meanings and stuff!
                      LOL, well, since you know about Korean words and names I think you have total authority to give me a Korean name!!๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜

    • Issabelle

      Awww, girl, that just means SO MUCH to me!!!!! I am SO thankful for you and for being friends with you!!!! *hugs* (Oh, that’s okay, girl!!!! I SOOO get that life happens!!)

      Haha, same here, but you can SOOO DO THIS!!!! GOOOO ALLY!!!!! I believe in you!!! *waving pom poms and chanting crazy cheer* Goooo Ally go!!!!! WOOHOOO!!! *sends motivational chocolate*

      Awww, girl, THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!!!! I am SO happy you liked it!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

              • Ally M.J.

                Ok, so for eleven months, Minneapolis and the surrounding area had been plagued by a serial killer called The Illusionist. The Illusionist would set up mirrors and complicated mechanisms that the police and private investigators would have to get through to find the victim. And always, there was a ace of spaces quite literally stapled to the victims chest. On the card was a signature, the signature of the killer.
                P.I. Lian Huang and her partner, Brett Harris, were the ones who caught Ian Fellery, a man in his early forties. Fellery confessed and gave up the murder weapon, and Lian finally got to close the case, confident that the Illusionist was behind bars. So when a twenty-first victim shows up, murdered in the same horrendous way as the others, with the card stapled to their chest, Lian is shook. Is the man she put in prison truly the man responsible? Is the Illusionist more than one person? Is some sick idolizer continuing Felleryโ€™s work?
                All Lian knows is, itโ€™s not over yet.

                • Issabelle

                  Whoa, Ally, like MIND BLOWN!!!!!! Seriously, that was just… ABSOLUTELY GENIUS!!!! Did you just make that up on the spot? ‘Cause like I am soooo hooked and that ending line… girl, this is INCREDIBLE!!!!! And the Illusionist and the plot twist that maybe that wasn’t the true Illusionist I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!! And the whole mystery kinda got a bit of a detective feel to is just makes it EVEN MORE mind-blowing!!! Like how on earth do you do it???!!!! (Also, I found it kinda funny in a good way that one of the character’s names was Brett Harris, ’cause I know of an author dude–well, I don’t know him personally–by the same name. And when I first saw it, I had to reread it to make sure you weren’t talking about the same person. ๐Ÿ˜‚)

                  • Ally M.J.

                    I did just make it up on the spot *proud smile*
                    (Lol, I donโ€™t know anyone named Brett, Iโ€™m sure heโ€™s great)

                    • Issabelle

                      Whoa, girl, that is INCREDIBLE!!!! *gives you ALL da chocolate*
                      (Hahaha, yeah, like I said I don’t really know him personally, but yup, I’m sure he’s great, too. XD)

                • Katherine

                  WOW, Ally, your story idea sounds INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I AM SO INTRIGUED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I JUST WANT TO READ YOUR STORY NOW ‘CAUSE IT SOUNDS SO AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Allie Jo Andersen

    Oooh, this is so exciting!!!! Congrats on 100 followers!!!! I’ll definitely have to submit something (and a story that y’all haven’t read yet ๐Ÿ˜‰)!!! This is an awesome idea and I can’t wait to see how it turns out!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Do you know how many stories/poems/nonfiction pieces you’re planning on putting in the anthology (just out of curiosity ๐Ÿ˜‰)?

    • Issabelle

      Eeeekkkk, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH, Allie!!!!! I am SO thrilled to hear you think so!!!!!! D’awww, THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!!!!! Ooooh, girl, I cannot wait to read it!!!! I always LOVE everything you right. Why thank you, girl!!!! I’m honestly already surprised to see SO many people like the idea as much as we did, but I am REALLY pumped to see where this goes. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well, not really at the moment. I think it’s just gonna depend on the number of submissions we get. Like if we only get ten, then we’d just publish all ten. But if we got like twenty-five we might only pick fifteen/twenty of them. So, yup, I’m kinda playing most of this by ear, if you couldn’t tell. ๐Ÿ˜‰ XDD

      • Allie Jo Andersen

        You are very welcome, friend!!! <3 Yes, of course I think so!!!! You are very welcome!!! Haha, well I'm not surprised, honestly…. this is a great and fun idea!!!! (Actually, I was considering doing a writing contest sometime… though definitely one different from this and of course not during this month to step on y'all's toes XD) Okay, that makes sense!! I can't wait to see how it turns out!! ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Issabelle

          โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ Hahahaha, that’s what Kat was trying to tell me, but I didn’t listen. XD I thought it was just some more wacky, impossible ideas y’know I’m infamous for. XDDD But I am BEYOND HAPPY that you think so!!!!!!! (Oooh, girl, you TOTALLY SHOULD!!!!! It would be sooo much fun!!!! Hahaha, awwww, thanks!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) YAAAY!!!! Me too!!! <33

  • Victoria

    OH. MY. WORD.

    YOU GUYS!!!!!! THIS IS TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!!!! *screams and jumps up and down and throws confetti everywhere* I will DEFINITELY try entering (as long as I can whip up a story in 30 days….) XDD THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for hosting this and I can’t wait to see where it goes!!!

    (Also, that video was SOOO EPIC, Issabelle!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love using Imovie to make stuff like that!) XD

    • Issabelle

      Awww, Victoria, YOUR EXCITEMENT JUST MEANS THE WORLD TO ME!!!!!!!!!!! *also screams, jumps up and down, and runs around the house continuing to scream* *dances in the confetti* Eeekkkk, YAAY!!!!! (Lol, well, I hope you can whip something up, ’cause your stuff is ALWAYS soooo awesome!!!!!!!) ๐Ÿ˜‰ Girl, you’re SO welcome! Thank YOU for your excitement and considering sending something. It just means SO MUCH to us!!!!!!!! YESSS!!!! Same here!!! So far I’m already surprised at how much excitement we’ve gotten. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      (D’awww, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH, VICTORIA!!!!!!!! <3333 YES!!! This was honestly my first time using Imovie, since I have to borrow someone else's MacBook soooo...)

      Also, I LOVE your profile pic!!!! <33

      • Victoria

        Awwww, girl, this CONTEST means the world to me!!! *hoping that makes sense when it probably doesnโ€™t* XD Seriously, the fact that you would do something THIS BIG and THIS EPIC for us!?!?!?! Iโ€™m not kidding when I say itโ€™s literally THE BEST 100 FOLLOWERS PARTY THING EVER!!!!!! NOTHING in the history of the blogosphere will top this! XD So, of course Iโ€™m gonna want to submit something! (I actually started plotting out a story idea for it today and am getting preeeeetttty excited!) XD

        *Gasps* Well, that was AMAZING for your first time! (Lol, yeah, I know all about borrowing devices to do things…) ๐Ÿ˜œ

        Awww, thank you so much! I just set up a WordPress account yesterday and had no idea my profile pic would show up like that! XD But hey, I guess people might โ€œrecognizeโ€ me better since I use that signature flower basically everywhere. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„

        • Issabelle

          Girl, that TOTALLY makes sense and just means soooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, of course, we’d have to do something AMAZINGLY awesome, ’cause I just wanted to make sure all of y’all knew HOW MUCH your support for this li’l ole blog just means to us!!!! I feel like y’all have helped me more with my writing than I have helped you and I don’t think I can EVER say enough THANK YOUS!!!!!!!!!! Aaahhhaaa, you think so? Eeeeekk, I had really wanted it to be something excited and unbeatable!! (I’m pretty competitive. XD) YAAAAY!!!!!! (Ooooh, that sounds SO AWESOME!!!!! I am getting soooo excited, too!!! Can’t wait to read it!!!! <3333)

          D'awww, you think so? THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!! (Hahahaha, yup, I feel ya... XD)

          Of course, girl!!!! Ooooh, how exciting!!! Hahaha, yeah, I think it connects your emails profiles pic automatically or something like that. But you can always go in and change it. YESSS!!!!! That's actually why I try to keep all my profiles images uniformed and not change them around a lot, so I'll be a bit "recognizable" in the virtual world. It actually helps 'cause I've had people before tell me something like, hey, you're that girl from Teen Writers' Nook. Or something like that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Katherine

      EEEEKKKK, I’M SO HAPPY YOU THINK SO!!!!!!!! Ooh, yay!!!!! That would be AWESOME if you wrote something!!!!! Your writing is FABULOUS!!!!!! <33 Aww, you're welcome!!!!! Thank YOU, girl; I'm so glad you're excited!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Victoria

        Awwww, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! It means a lot to know youโ€™d want a piece of my work to be in the anthology! ๐Ÿ˜Š (Which *cough* also means I gotta start getting busy…) XD *scrambles off to write* ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Katherine

          You’re welcome, Victoria!!!!!!!!! <33333 Awwww, girl, it would be an honor to have a piece of your work in the anthology!!!!!!!๐Ÿ’— (Lol, yep!!!! Better start writing!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ XD) *gives you chocolate to boost your creativity while you write* ๐Ÿ˜‰

In the blogging world, I have perfectly wonderful cakes and cookies. In real life… I can’t even make toast without it messing up.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚)

    • Katherine

      Eeekkk, me neither!!!!!!!!!! But, I’m so HAPPY you’re excited!!!!!!!!! Issabelle was getting kinda worried the other day that no one would like it, and I said that we couldn’t back out now ‘cuz we spent the whole month planning it. So, yeah, I’m definitely happy you’re excited!!!!!!!๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you, girl!!! Hehehe, yes, pull out the pens and paper (or computer๐Ÿ˜œ). Haha, no it ain’t! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Wooo!!!! Gooo, Mahitha!!!!! Write that story!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ <33

        • Katherine

          Haha, I’ll totally tell her!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Aw, that’s nice of you to say!!! Though, I will still be happy if it’s only five entries.๐Ÿ˜‰ Haha, 500 is a pretty high number.๐Ÿ˜œ

  • Faith Quelle

    Are you serious? This is so cool! I have a question; can I submit both a short story and a poem? And what does ‘published’ mean? (Some of my poems have been ‘published’ in our co-op magazine, but nobody besides the homeschool community in Rochester saw them. I think.) Is that acceptable? Thank you SO MUCH!!! for doing this!

    • Issabelle

      YESSS!!!!!! Eeeekk, girl, I am SO glad you think so!!! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!!! Hmmm… well, I think that would be totally fine to submit both!!!!!! Well, even though your poems were not widely seen, we will probably still consider that as being previously published. So I guess that wouldn’t be acceptable, if that’s okay. ๐Ÿ™‚ Aww, girl, thank YOU SOOO MUCH for your excitement!!!! It put a huge smile on my face!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Also, on a side note that has nothing to do with the anthologyish thing, it is SO COOL to meet a fellow homeschooler!!!!! *high fives*)

    • Issabelle

      EEEKKK!! THANK YOU SO SO SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to read it!!! I already know it’s gonna be AMAZING!!! ๐Ÿ˜€โค๏ธโค๏ธ

    • Issabelle

      EEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!! Jane, I literally cannot tell you how much your excitement (and just this whole comment in general) means to me!!!!!!!! D’awwww, girl, the honor is all mine!!!! You seriously helped build Teen Writers’ Nook and were there when we had zero followers. (Which I guess would technically be inaccurate, since we had you. So I guess you were there when we had one follower. XDD) THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!! (Actually, it’s a little more than 121, but for some unknown reason our new followers aren’t calculating through.

  • Lorelei A.

    Hi! (You might remember me from CDubs ๐Ÿ˜Š) CONGRATS, TWN!!!!! <3 This sounds so fun!!!! And the video was amazing and edited beautifully! I will DEFINITELY be participating!!!!!

    I just have a few questions though (I hate to be *that* person ๐Ÿ˜‚): How many submissions is one allowed? I would like to possibly submit a few poems and a maybe a short story, so I was just wondering.

    Also, how long should the poems be? Is there a minimal work count?

    Anywho, this all looks and sounds AWESOME!!!!!!! I have been reading TWN for almost a month and this is my first time commenting, but I love your blog!!!!!!!!!!!! Y'all are amazing! (P.S. And Katherine, thanks for talking to me and being my friend on CDubs <3)

    • Katherine

      *gasp* LORELEI!!!!!!!! HI!!!!!! *waves excitedly* ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ THANK YOU!!!!! <33 Yay, I'm so glad to hear that!!!! I'm glad you enjoyed the video!!!! I was hoping it would get people excited!๐Ÿ˜‰ YAY!!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, GIRL!!!!!!!!!! <333 I look forward to reading your entries!!!!!๐Ÿ˜€

      Alrighty!! (Lol, no worries!! I ask questions all the time 'cuz I need to know every little detail.๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚) You are allowed as many as you'd like to submit! (So, I guess there isn't a limit. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Oooh, I can't wait to read them!!!!!!!!

      The poems can be as long or short as you want! So, if your poem is one stanza, that works! If it's one line (can anyone write a poem in one line??๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜†) that works too! However long you want your poem to be is totally acceptable!!

      Thank you so much, Lorelei!!!!!!! REALLY??! Eeekkk!!!!! *squeals* I had no idea you've been reading posts on here!!!!! I'm just so happy and excited I don't know what to do about it!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much for reading and commenting!!!!!!!! It means so much to me!!!!! <3 Thank you, girl!!!! Aww, thank you!!!!! You're so amazing too!!!! (Aww, you're SO welcome!!!!! Thank YOU so much for talking to me too and being my friend!!!!!!! <3333 You have just made my day, girl!!!!)

      • Faith Quelle

        I just had to say this. Can someone write a poem in one line? Yes, absolutely! The shortest poem in the world is called ‘Lines on the Antiquity of Microbes’. It’s other name is ‘Fleas’. You wanna hear it?
        Adam had’um.
        I seriously can’t write this without laughing. It’s a real thing. Look it up.

        • Katherine

          NO WAYYY?!?!?! Really??? Ok, MIND BLOWN AWAY RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!๐Ÿ˜ฒ I literally had no idea that someone could write a one-line poem!!!!!!!!! That’s like incredible!!!!! I’m just so amazed you can actually write a poem in one sentence AND IT STILL RHYME!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this valuable piece of information with me!!! I seriously needed this in my life!๐Ÿ˜† Now I’m going to be telling everyone about the shortest poem in the world! Girl, I was laughing while reading it!!!๐Ÿ˜‚ I just . . . I can’t believe this!!๐Ÿ˜‚

          • Faith Quelle

            Of course! I had the strong sense that you needed that very important piece of information in your life…. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Lorelei A.

            Wow, that is both amazing and hilarious! ๐Ÿคฃ Thanks for sharing that, Faith!! You made my day! ๐Ÿ˜€

            Just a question for anyone: How does one write a bio? This is my first time EVER actually writing something somewhat-professionally and I have never written my bio before. XD What do yours look like? <333333

            • Katherine

              I know, right?!!๐Ÿคฃ

              Um . . . I have no idea!๐Ÿ˜‚ I’ve never actually written one before. I guess you would say something about writing and maybe things you’re interested in. I think the big thing, though, is just to say something about your writing. Here, I’m going to attempt to write one on the spot:
              “Katherine is a Christian author of a variety of genres. This is due to the fact that she loves to try new things, which is how she first found her love for writing. She started writing when she was very young as a way to creatively challenge herself. Now she is working to complete two of her novels with a passion to write about broken characters who find God’s healing.”

              There’s my bio. I’m sure your’s is FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!! <3333333 And I can't wait to read your writing!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much for submitting something!!!!!๐Ÿ’—

    • Issabelle

      Aww, girl, I am SO happy to hear you liked the video and are planning to enter something!!! THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!! Also, it always makes me sooo happy when someone tells me they like our blog so THANK YOU A HUNDRED TIMES OVER!!!!!!!!

      Oooh, also WELCOME to Teen Writers’ Nook!!!!! We are SO THRILLED to have you!!!! *sends lotsa welcome chocolate*

  • Joy Caroline

    This is such a fun and creative idea! Congrats to all three of you – Issabelle, Katherine, and Alana – on hitting 100 followers! Y’all totally deserve it and more. Most of all, thank you for creating a kind, warm, and welcoming space for teen writers. You’ve been such an encouragement to me since I submitted my first comment.

    I’m regretful that I won’t be able to participate myself, but I’m very excited for all those who are participating! I can’t wait to see how the anthology turns out. Blessings.

    • Katherine

      Thank you so much, JC!!!!!! Aww, thank you, girl!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Awww!!!!!!๐Ÿ˜Š You’re so sweet!!!!!๐Ÿ’— God bless you, girl!!!!! Awww, you’re very welcome!!!!!! Thank you so much for your support of TWN and for being my friend!!!!! <33 Aww, girl, I am touched to hear you say that!!!!!!!! Thank you for all your sweet comments!!!!!! <3333

      That's perfectly alright!!! I totally understand!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you'll like the anthology, though, once it's complete. ๐Ÿ™‚ And thank you so much for your excitement!!!!!!!! Blessings to you too!!!! <33

      P.S. how's the 100-for-100 coming along? I hope you're making a lot of progress!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Joy Caroline

        God bless you, too! Thank you!
        The 100-for-100 is getting along great! I’ve been writing every day except for Saturday, because of Sabbath rest. I’m grateful GTW is allowing us one grace day per week to show respect for that. Yeah, it’s working really well for me! I hope you’re making progress as well!

        • Katherine

          Thank you!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re welcome! <33
          That's AWESOME!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yes, me too!!!! That was very nice of GTW!!! I took the grace day on Wednesday (which I regret 'cause I could've really used it on Sunday๐Ÿ˜‚). My family's been doing a lot of family things on Sundays so I'm not really at my computer. We've been doing a Revelation study, and it's amazing (but also hard to understand)!!!!! Anyway, I'm happy to hear that it's working well!!!!!!!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’— My progress is coming along great (sorta)!!! Today I wrote almost 500 words which is the most I've done in one day for this challenge so far!

          • Joy Caroline

            Awesome! I’m actually doing a Daniel/Revelation Bible study right now as well. What a coincidence. XD I agree with you that it’s amazing but hard to understand!

            That’s great, Kat! The most I’ve done so far is 685 words. Cheering you on!

            • Katherine

              Whoa!!! Really?!! THAT’S SO COOL!!!!!!!!!๐Ÿ˜€ *high-fives* I’d love to hear your thoughts on it sometime!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

              Thank you!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Wow, you’re doing AWESOME, JC!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!! I’m cheering you on as well!!!!!! WOOO!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Ribbon Ash

    Congrats on getting 100 followers and happy early blog birthday!!! *throws out confetti, balloons, cake and chocolate*
    Also awesome video!!! It gave me all the epic movie trailer vibes.

    • Katherine

      Hahaha, oops, sorry about that!!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ
      Aw, that’s alright, girl!!! I totally understand about not having time!!!! And I wouldn’t want you to stress yourself over it! I hope you’ll enjoy the anthology, though, once it’s finished! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thank you so much!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ *dances in confetti* *eats cake and chocolate* *sends a “thank-you” card to Ribbon Ash*
      Yay, I’m so glad you liked it!!!!!!! Oooh, yes, I’m with you on that–it gave me epic movie trailer vibes too!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Linyang

    Congrats! Might come up with something to submit. Just one question though, do you want the document in a Word doc, Google doc, or PDF?

    • Issabelle

      THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!! Oooooh, AWESOME!!!!!! I ALWAYS love reading stuff from you (seriously, girl, you are SO talented!!!), so I hope you’re able to send something!!! <333 Hmmm... I don't really have a preference but Word docs and Google docs are just easier to work with, so preferably one of those, but anything will work. (Also, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH for stopping by!!!!!! *sends welcome goodies*)

  • Grace King-Matchett


    First of all, I’d like to apologize to you awesome TWNers that I haven’t been around the blogosphere lately. ๐Ÿ™ I’ve been really busy with my writing (I have to finish The Azure Diamond by the 30th actually, AHHH, but I’m on track don’t worry XD), not to mention my blog hiatus so that I thus have more time to write.

    BUT I saw this post the other day (thank you, Grace A. Johnson!!!!!! XD) and I would like to say that I would LOVE to join!!! I’ve already started on a story that’s coming together nicely, EEEEK!!! I’m so very excited for this!!!!!!!

    Wait- is everyone gonna be published? or just the winner?


    • Issabelle


      Oh, Grace, that is TOTALLY 100% okay!!!! I sooo get that, but it’d be a lie to say I wasn’t suuuper excited to hear from you again!!!!! <333 (AAAAHHH!!!!!! How far into it are you? I know you can TOTALLY MAKE IT!!! WOOHOOO!! GO GRACE GO!!!!!! *pumps fist in the air*)

      YAAAY!!!!! (Second thanks to Grace A. Johnson. XD) EEEEKKK, girl, we'd just LOVE to have you!!!!! *high fives* Ooooooh that just sounds SO EXCITING!!!! I can't wait to hear more about it (and hopefully read it *fingers crossed*). Aww, girl, THANK YOUUUU!!! We are SO excited for this, too!!!!!!

      Well, we're REALLY hoping we'll be able to publish all the submissions we receive, but if we get a lot, we'll have to pick our favorites. However, those that aren't chosen, will be published on our blog. (But I think we're gonna be able to publish them all. Hopefully. ๐Ÿ™‚

      GIRL YOU'RE EXCITEMENT JUST MEANS SO MUCH TO ME!!!!!!!! Lol, yeah, just forget about those grammar and spelling problems. XD EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

      • Grace King-Matchett

        AHHHH I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!! (Congrats on your newest WIP, too, btw! ๐Ÿ˜€ It sounds really interesting!)

        Awww, <333333 THANK YOU! You know I love talking with you, Issa! XD I think I'm about ~77k so far? aiming for around 100-102k-ish. AND THANK YOU AHHHH

        YES! I just finished my short story today, actually, and am getting a few friends to look it over so it'll be a bit more polished before I send it in XD I really tried to put emphasis on the relationship of the two main characters, rather than focus mainly on plot like I usually do. PLEASE TELL KAT AND ALANA I AM VERY VERY EXCITED FOR THIS EEK

        Oh, ok! That's awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm sosososososoSO excited! If I get picked it will be the FIRST TIME I WILL HAVE EVER BEEN PUT IN PRINT OH MY WORD just thinking about that is so exciting…

        XDDDDDD ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

        • Issabelle

          YESSSS ME TOO!!!!!!!!!! (D’awww, THANK YOU SO MUCH, girl!!!!! Eeekk, you think so? THAT MEANS SO MUCH!!! I’ve been having a pretty crazy time writing it, but at least the characters are playing fair and not changing EVERYTHING up on me (unlike certain ones… *glares at Colin and Keenum*).

          You’re SO welcome!!!!! Awww, girl, you’re just the best!!!! <333333 *gasp* THAT IS SO COOL!!!!!!! OoooOoooOooooO Girl, you are doing FANTABULOUS!!!!!!!! Of course, girl!!!!!!!

          WOOHOOO!!!!!! How exciting!!! Yeah, that sounds like a PERFECT plan!!!!! I AM SO STOKED TO READ IT!!!!!! Oooh, Grace, that just sounds sooo awesome!!! Especially how you put an extra focus on the characters. (After all, our charries are the best thing ever. XD) I already know I'm gonna ADORE it sooooo much!!!!! OF COURSE, I WILL TOTALLY TELL THEM!!!!!!!!! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ EEEKKK!!!

          Yup. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yesssss!!!! I am sosososososoosososososososoooooooooSOOOOOOOO excited, too!!!!!!! *gasp* Whoa, really, girl? THAT WOULD BE LIKE THE MOST AMAZINGEST THING EVERRRRR!!!!!!!!!! Yessss, that IS so exciting!!!!!!

          • Grace King-Matchett

            YESSSS!!! Tell me more about it! I wanna know XDDD <3333 LOL Colin and Keenum XDDDDD

            Awww, thank you!!! <3333 Thank you! Trying not to stress over it, AHHHHH but i stress anyways AHHHH AGAIN XDDD

            Yessssssss!!!!! I'm super super excited to see what you think!!! <3333 Yeah, I love putting extra emphasis on charries & their bonds with each other, it really deepens a story in my opinion ๐Ÿ’•


            • Issabelle

              YEAA!!!! Oooh, okay. Well, the plot’s a pretty simplistic plot (thank goodness, ’cause Keenum’s story just ’bout did me in XD). Did I mention this was a modern retelling of Cinderella? With a lotta action and suspense, moving the plot forward, ’cause I need stuff happening to stay interested. XD Basically some creepy dude is trying to take the throne of Vallien (a tiny country somewhere in Europe) and he’s after Ruslan. It’s kinda got a bit of a survival story feel, but I think I’m gonna consider it action/adventure. I’m honestly still trying to figure stuff out. Did that kinda give you an idea of the story or did I just confuse you as much as I am? XD Hahahaha YESS!!!! Keenum and Colin can be really hard to work with sometimes, but I still love them for all their flaws. XDDDDDDD

              You’re SO welcome!!!!!!!!! Hahaha, I SO get that!!!!! EVERY TIME I tell myself not to stress about deadlines and stuff, it never works. If you want to do some writing sprints together, just lemme know or shoot me an email? YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!

              Eeeekkk, same here!!!!!!!!!! YESSS IT REALLY DOES DEEPEN A STORY!!!!!! Characters seriously make or break a story most of the time!!!! LOVE IT!!! <333333


        • Katherine

          YAY, I’m so HAPPY you’re excited!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ I can’t wait to read your story, girl!!!!!!!! You’re writing is so FABULOUS!!!!!!!๐Ÿ’—

          Also, it sounds like your making GREAT progress with your novel!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Wooo!!!!!! You’re doing great, girl!!!!! <333

          Oh oh, and I almost forgot to tell you that I put the picture of Palladin you made on my "works" page under "The Team's Writings". (Hehe, Palladin looks so cute over there!!!!๐Ÿ˜œ)

  • Lrose5

    Ohh, congrats!!!!!!!!! So it’s poems too? I MAY enter one….. we’ll see! XD How many winners will there be? Have a great day guys!!!! (girls)


    • Issabelle

      Aww, THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!! <3333 Yup, it's anything kind of creative writing form you can possibly think of!!! We just wanna showcase our reader's writings. All of y'all are just SO talented and AMAZING writers and y'all deserve to be spotlighted!!!!!! Ooooh, I hope you're able too!!!! Well, we're not sure yet. It kinda depends on the number of submissions we get. We're REALLY wanting to be able to publish all of them, but if we get like over twenty or so, we're probably gonna chose somewhere from fifteen to twenty. But whoever doesn't get picked, his/her submission will still be featured on our blog!!! THANKS!!! You have a SPECTACULAR day, too!!!! <333

  • Tori

    Oooh this sounds wonderful!!! Iโ€™d love to have something of mine published in a book (although I am published but….itโ€™s a bit complicated as you canโ€™t really purchase it except through me I believe).

    (Ps, for those on KP, this is Godlyfantasy12!)

    Even though Iโ€™ve kinda just got on TWN, and am joining it, may I still enter? That counts as being a part of it correct?

    • Issabelle
