The WomenIn the early days, even the slightest thought was mad and horrific. A woman was not only to be wedded over to her pre-chosen husband, but she was also to be wed to her house and to sit in silence as the world put her down. And what did we do? We let our lives be mapped out by men who were blind to the colorful world of The Woman. No, that was both an exaggeration and an understatement. Men showed love and caring to women, but still underestimated the power, hidden away inside our gowns and curtsies. And if the groans of the woman of today are heard concerning their terrible life, let it be known that there were others before them who challenged the fools living in the past and fought for a rights, with their talents and without their whines.The Women by pencilxpusher
Your voice reigns high, Woman of the Earth. Let the world know that you can use it. Scream to the world that it is yours to take, and you will not sit back and let it be stolen from you.

All of Jeda was rejoicing the bloom of the Fensil flower, its potently sweet, dark plum filling every belly for miles and in particular the quaint farming town of Konia.
Holding its annual festival, as it did every summer, Konia was as colourful as ever. Banners that celebrated the Thirteen Clans and the flags of their King and country lined the clean streets, swept lanes and scrubbed narrow walkways.
Everywhere flower arrangements to suit the season sat outside proud homes and the abundant fruit sat in small bowls placed atop of window sills for the approaching visitor.
Large enough to fit in the palm of your hand and plump in flesh around a tiny seed, the Fensil fruit was their most celebrated export.
Like most places within Jeda this town was usually kept particular and clean but with every festival, few in occurrence, the often dreary streets came alive with colour and decoration, a thing rarely sighted elsewhere in the year due to the heavily modest and conservative attitude of th
TruthI want to write something that's true. I want to write about where I grew up, the windows I looked out of, the people who shaped me. I want everyone to learn from my closest friends, the times I laughed, and the times I cried. I want people to relate to me, and my life. I want them to know they've found a friend. I want them to know that I've cried those tears and I've stood in their shoes. I want them to know I care.Truth by Be-Back-Soon

FrankaI watch your unbalanced figure skate across the room, so out of sync, so strange within the ordinary maroon carpeted classroom. Your appearance is so rugged and disorientated, a sly smile etched deep into the scarring tissues of your mouth, the macabre and demeaning look in your blood-ridden eyes, a manifestation of colossal fear and longing drowning within each tear. You take the only seat available, beside me; your short dishevelled hair shedding bright colours as you slump down on the teal chair. You don't even bother to look up, digging the dirt out of your short and broken fingernails; kicking your feet to an inaudible tune. The strong stench on your hunter green hoodie, a peculiar odour similar to poison is almost numbing, like a painkiller driving ferociously down my bony spine. Flinching at any sudden movement, you begin to scrape your claw like fingers across the ink imprinted wooden table, chipping several more of your soil incrusted nails and leaving a thin trail of dark, buFranka by KazokuBae

English Tutoring for Reading and Writing
I know if I want a job, I should set this up in my area. I will be trying to, but I don't think it'll hurt to help tutor others online who have trouble with English or think their child needs additional help. During my service, we can talk via Skype, Google docs, e-mail, or any other platform. I might accept calls as well.
Note me if you're interested. Because it is only for English writing/reading and I am in need of money, my rate should be affordable (and negotiable). However, I wouldn't mind working together on beginner (or intermediate?) Spanish lessons/homework also, since I've had 4 years of classes in it and have lost my touch with it.
My schedule is very, very flexible for the meantime. I am in PST time zone wise. Until I get a

Please keep in mind I'm somewhat of a slow writer and will run into unmotivational walls with writing. I'm also going to be working at a job when I find one and on Patreon/free stories.

OMG it's DONE
What's done?! IT'S DONE. I have spent days and days and days collecting a list of all the lit groups I could find (1901 groups to be exact!), then I went through each one and moved all the groups that had no discernible activity in the past 12 months to the Inactive Groups list (see links above). Then with

Let me explain the hierarchy of this group:
- I, Fackio-Zally, am the God of the group. :3 - can do whatever the hell she wants
- Co-founders are Demi-gods: can do almost whatever the hell they want & the stuff below
- Contributors are Patricians: should seek to invite members and affiliates, provide feedback and critique submitted works as needed or requested (if they so wish), organize & sort group folders, ensure rules are followed, suggest contests or prompts, make blogs about fiction-related stuff, & stand in for the God and Demi-gods.
- Members are Plebeians: cannot do whatever they want, but can sure have fun!
All in Good Humor though. :3
