If you haven’t heard “The Long End” three-parter, don’t listen to this podcast and go hear Album 66. If you have listened, join writer/director Paul McCusker to get into the details of this adventure. Get ready for a few surprises on the way!

Got Questions about Album 66…or anything Odyssey?
Call 1-855-784-WHIT (9448) to leave a question for the producers to answer on a future podcast. (Always be sure to have your parent’s permission before you call!)

Album 66: Trial by Fire

After years of searching for his true identity, Buck Oliver may finally get some answers. But along with clues about his family, he also is subjected to the dangers of his past. Buck’s old mentor Mr. Skint arrives in town with an offer that would take Buck away from Odyssey for good. Elsewhere, Connie feels unappreciated when Jules starts looking up to new roommate Jillian more than her own sister. And the crew at B-TV chart a course deep into the ocean to learn more about the concept of the Trinity. Dramatic conclusions and fresh beginnings abound in these six entertaining and inspiring adventures in Odyssey!

    I like the actor for Mr. Skint! He’s so friendly and nice; sometimes I wonder how he could play such a bad man like Mr. Skint. That just shows what a good actor he is! Great job Mr. Selby! 🙂

    Such a good podcast so glad i listened to the episodes FIRST


  • Marisa on May 22nd, 2019 - 7:31am

     

    Congrats WWIININJA on having your question answered!!


  • Wwiininja on May 22nd, 2019 - 7:33am

     

    Would you rather time!
    Would you rather…
    1: Have a 5 min phone call with president or a 20 min call with the governor?
    2: Be given $100 with a car of your choice or $10,000?
    3: Have a airport with no plane or a plane with no airport?
    4: Have 3 nickel-sized rubies or $100,000 cash?
    Thanks for playing!


  • haleya on May 22nd, 2019 - 7:55am

     

    I think I may be one of the first ones to commit.:-) Anyways,don’t worry Bob and Jessie, I did listen to the Long End Parts 1-3 WAYYY before this podcast was released, so no spoiler alerts for me. Glad that the Green Ring Conspiracy ended well with Mr. Skint finally getting caught and arrested. But now I want to hear on future episodes if Buck will forgive Mr. Skint and go see him in prison and maybe help influence him to change and become a Christian like him. Maybe Pastor Juan can help too.

    I don’t think Buck and Jules should date. I like them but not as a couple, wich is funny because I normally go for the romance stuff. Teen dating just isn’t my thing. All of my friends except for two (because they’re not aloud) are dating. I’m REALLY tired of hearing about it.

    Hi! 🙂


  • Coolcuz on May 23rd, 2019 - 12:14pm

     

    @WWIININJA:
    Hey! You like to write too! I adore writing! I write a lot of mystery stories or girl heroine stories, but I try to make them believable. Like my one girl heroine was a half Indian (American) during the War For Independence. She’s a spunky spy, yet a sweet person too. I’ve written several mystery stories too. I wish I could share them with you! 🙁 I’ve got another story idea cooking in my mind about an American Indian who grew up doing bad ….. Hold on, I’m out of “characters”.


  • Coolcuz on May 23rd, 2019 - 12:22pm

     

    Cont:
    She’s an American Indian who grew up doing bad things because she knew nothing more than that. Then a missionary comes to their tribe and tells her about Jesus. She becomes a Christian. A little later on in her life she becomes the queen, almost, of her tribe and helps them change their ways. Now I have a problem: what should her name be? I don’t want a name like “Speaking Rain” or “Yellow Moon”. Any suggestions? How about “Titiantonta”? I’m open for anything. Thankyou, guys! 🙂 😉

    I don’t want Buck and Jules to date. Teen dating is not really my thing. I love them together, but let’s just leave it at a crush for now, ok?


  • AgentX14 on May 23rd, 2019 - 6:29pm

     

    WWIININGA:
    1: Neither. XD
    2: $100 dollars and a car of my choice
    3: Hmm. That’s tough. I think an airport with no plane because I could either buy a plane or sell the airport building for something else.
    4: I’m gonna go with the cash here
    You’re welcome!


  • gw28 on May 23rd, 2019 - 8:08pm

     

    Me: Hmm.. I disagree. It wouldn’t really be going out unless they actually say they’re going out. They are just hanging out, Jules is probably one of the only person that Buck can open up to.


  • Wwiininja on May 24th, 2019 - 4:36am

    I agree. I don’t like teen dating either.


  • Wwiininja on May 24th, 2019 - 4:40am

     

    @CoolCuz
    Whenever I am writing or telling a story and I can’t think of a name, I make it up. Example: “Rakuul” is a name made up for a bad guy. Since I am REALLY bad at thinking up names, I usually just make one up. That’s just an idea you can try, if you want. Hope it helps!


  • Wwiininja on May 24th, 2019 - 4:43am

     

    Verse of the day:
    “Psalm 31:3 KJV “For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.”
    Hope it gives you strength!

    I’ve also got another really good story idea, but I don’t want to bore you. If you want to hear it, let me know and I’ll tell you! 🙂
    Another name idea is Malachi for a boy or Vienna for a girl. Just some suggestions. If you ever need a full name or last names, let me know! I’m great at last names, just sayin’.
    I tried to write a story once about another world, but that idea totally bombed. 🙂 I’m so much better at writing about fictional people in history than fantasy. 🙂

    I don’t really like the idea of teen dating but a lot of people are doing it and it might be a good idea to have a teen couple as an example. Idk tho

    Have any of you noticed that Paul McCusker writes all of the really good episodes? I think he and Phil Lollar are the best writers for Odyssey (though Kathy Bucanon did a few good ones).

    The Long End is a really good episode! @ Coolcuz, I think Paul McCusker is an AMAZING writer for the show, but I’ve noticed that most of my favorite episodes are written by Kathy Bucannon.

  • Gisela on May 26th, 2019 - 3:55pm

     

    Teen dating is a controversial topic. Although people protest Buck & Jules, nobody protests Connie & Jeff in “First Love”. Connie was the same age – if not younger – than Buck & Jules in that episode! She was 16! Buck is at least 16.5 and Jules is no doubt 16 now – or older. Sooooooo…guys…?


  • Me on May 26th, 2019 - 4:51pm

     

    Cartoons
    For me it depends on the type of teen dating
    If theyre just going out to get to know each other I think it’s good
    If they get serious….. it just seems wrong because they’re only teens

  • gisela on May 26th, 2019 - 5:24pm

     

    Guys, define teen dating. Teenagers are from the ages 13-19 but 18+ are considered adults (but are also technically teenagers). My personal belief is that around the 16+ range in a decent time to start dating. Goodness, there are 12-year-olds dating (which *really* bothers me)! Buck & Jules are 16+ which I believe is fine because they are reaching their late teens. I respect of all y’alls opinions, but that’s just what I think.

I thought about it for a while and have decided to start a discussion on one of the comment pages about writing, tips on writing, our experiences with writing, or helping out with suggestions. I could be a teacher of sorts since I’ve been writing for years. If anyone thinks this is a good idea, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I need at least two people interested, or I won’t do it. Got it?

    MY OPINION ON JASON AND MONICA:
    1. I never liked Monica even befor I knew she was bad.
    2. Monica was awful!!!
    3. Having her marry Jason would be just as screwball as having Richard Maxwell come back and marry Connie.
    4. I don’t think they are going to let any of the Novacom people out of prison EVER! They tried to take over the world! The police aren’t going to say “oh, I guess it’s alright. You only tried to take over the world! You can go now!” Huhuh, not happening. Continued soon…

  • Coolcuz on May 28th, 2019 - 8:31am

     

    CONT. FROM LAST COMMENT:
    5. I have a feeling Monica is one of those people who would say anything if it would save her hide. What she said to Jason is may be entirely made up.
    6. Again, Monica is just a brat and sooo annoying!

    I’m sorry if I sounded mean, and I didn’t intend to hurt anyone’s feelings.

    @GISELA
    I personally know two girls (probably more) who were only 11-12 when they were dating. Both relationships ended sadly. I hate it when I hear “we broke up” and then why they did. I do agree that 16 is a good age to start dating, though I forget that Buck and Jules are that old! When I think of them I think they are still only 14. Connie and Jeff were definitely a young couple. Still, I don’t really like Buck and Jules dating but they may use this to possibly talk about teen dating.

    I don’t believe Buck had siblings. I think Felisha Larson would have told him if he did. I could be wrong, though. Siblings for Buck would probably be a hard thing for them to bring to Odyssey. If they were older than him, would he have to go live with them? I’m not good at guardians and all of that kind of thing. ;-]

  • Marisa on May 28th, 2019 - 2:18pm

     

    I personally want Buck and Jules to start dating. Lately, I think the new Odyssey episodes have had really shallow lessons or lessons that aimed towards little little kids. I think having Buck and Jules date will provide lessons that will appeal to a larger audience. It’s like what Chris says at the end of “First Love”
    “For some of you, dating might seem like a long way off. But now is the best time to understand and decide what you’ll do when you’re ready to date”

    CONTINUED


  • Marisa on May 28th, 2019 - 2:20pm

     

    CONTINUED
    Having Buck and Jules date will allow for opportunities for families to talk about dating. This isn’t just a topic for adults, but for everyone. Like Chris said. and Gisela is also completely right. Why is Buck and Jules such an issue, but nobody gives a second thought to “First Love”? Teen dating is a thing. Odyssey can’t just pretend it doesn’t exist, and because it does exist, it gives all the more reason to address it.

    @ME: they are too young to date in my opinion. I know people start dating at there age but I believe people should start dating at least at 18 because people are to immature any younger than that.


  • PeterF on May 28th, 2019 - 3:53pm

     

    people don’t protest “first love” because that is way in the past and nobody can do anything about it anyway but for buck and jules we can actually influence odyssey by telling them our opinions on having them actually date.

    penny lived in a one story house
    The chairs were pink
    The floors were pink
    The roof was pink
    The walls were pink
    The silverware is pink
    The doors are pink
    The counters were pink
    What color were the stairs?

    One last one
    How far can you run into the woods?

    @FUNKNITTING,
    Awww 😥 I miss them soo much.
    Ooh that sounds fun! Lol I bet your nieces are soo cute :p Ukulele would be a fun instrument. A few months ago I started guitar lessons, I’m doing pretty good so far, I think. Lol I can play Amazing grace, I’ll fly away, and Nothing but the blood. I’m learning some other songs and stuff. How long have you been playing ukulele?

    Hey, everyone! I have a verse that I like and a lesson about it. Would anyone mind if I did it on this sight? It’s about heaven and believing in Jesus. It’s more like a story than a lesson. If no one wants me to, that’s okay, I understand!

    So, I was wondering, I’ve really been feeling strongly lately that I should invite a boy I know to my youth group. Normally, I’m really good at doing things like that, but this time, I kind of get a cold feeling when I think of doing this. I’m also nervous and somewhat scared. Do any of you have any suggestions or ideas that might help me? Prayers for me on Monday (when I see him and ask him) would be appreciated. I wouldn’t ask him but I deal that God really wants me to.

    @COOLCUZ,
    When I see the word popsicle the first thing that comes to my mind is the color red. Lol


  • EFDAHBIYOO on May 30th, 2019 - 7:14pm

     

    When I was listening online to the concluding scene of Episode 861: The Long End, Part 3 (of 3), I was thinking what if Buck learned in a future episode that Mr. Skint was watching him and Eugene and Katrina shooting the toy rocket as a reference to the cover art of Album 66. I know that that is a small detail and thus not important. Though, I do think it would be cool to have that as a fun little detail in an episode. I was actually trying to listen if there was any sounds of a bush rustling.

  • Kaylynne on May 31st, 2019 - 8:19am

     

    @Coolcuz the thing to remember when you know God wants you to talk to someone, invite them to YG, etc, is that the Bible says that you should take no thought (don’t worry about) what you should say, because the same hour that you’ll have to say it, He will show you the right thing to say. Does that make sense? And also, if you know thy God wants you do it, then really there’s no reason to be nervous, because no matter the outcome, you know that you did what God wanted, and that’s what matters.<3

    Sometimes things happen that we don’t understand.

    Perhaps we cry.

    Or binge eat ice cream.

    Perhaps we blame God.

    We ask Him why.

    We say we’ve been faithful.

    We ask what we did wrong.

    I’m here to tell you that it’s not your fault.

    The hurt that’s deep inside you.

    The loneliness that envelopes you.

    The rejection that cuts you.

    It. Is. Not. Your. Fault.

    God made you for a purpose.

    And this thing that crushes you.

    It is there to strengthen you.

    God loves you, my friend.

    @CreepyDude As I was looking on the comments I saw so many people thanking you for the message you posted. I read it and it’s really good. That message is really encouraging and true and it comforted my heart in a good way that’s hard to explain. You have a gift there I pray that you will keep using it. Thank You!

    Verse of the day:
    2 Timothy 4:2-3 KJV “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. [3] For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;”
    Hope it gives you direction!

  • Coolcuz on June 10th, 2019 - 10:09am

     

    I’ll begin with an introduction:
    Hello, everyone! My real name is Audrey and I’m always writing. I noticed that a lot of people like to write, so I talked to my friend and decided to start a writing page. Everyday (that I can, at least) I will post a short lesson and a tip. Hopefully it will give you inspiration. Also, you can ask questions or for names, ideas, ect. on this page too. I thank you all for coming! Let’s get this thing started!
    -CC


  • Coolcuz on June 10th, 2019 - 10:15am

     

    FIRST LESSON:
    I’m discussing first the way you introduce your characters into your story. How do you personally do that? Do you write out a whole chapter of explanations or do you do something different? I’m going to give you to examples of how you could introduce your characters. This first one is the one I personally prefer to do. I do it on the page befor my first chapter and do something like this:
    CONT.
    -CC


  • Coolcuz on June 10th, 2019 - 10:21am

     

    LESSON 1. CONT:
    Start with the main character in your story. These names and information are entirely fictional.

    Characters name: what the character looks like. How old the character is. Some fact about your character.

    Repeat this until you have all of your characters down. Be sure to leave room for any last minute characters you wish to add. Here’s an example:

    Addie Rushet: a freckled face, blue eyed girl with blond hair. She is seven years old and loves to play with her dolls.
    CONT.
    -CC


  • Coolcuz on June 10th, 2019 - 10:28am

     

    LESSON 1. CONT:
    Or you begin a story like this:

    – “Good morning, Frances!”cried Marge excitedly” tell me, how was your trip to San Antonio?”
    Marge Chawgain was talking to her best friend, Frances Due. Marge had beautiful, silky brown hair and honey colored eyes. She was a freshman in high school and was also the best cheerleader.
    “Fine,” answered the raven haired Frances indifferently.-

    Either way is a good way to start your story, but never start a story without explaining it.
    CONT.
    -CC


  • Coolcuz on June 10th, 2019 - 10:35am

     

    LESSON 1. CONT.:
    A good story needs a good start. Remember that. I judge a book by the first few pages. If it doesn’t interest me, I don’t finish it. A good start helps the story flow smoothly.

    TIP TIME:
    When I write, I try to do it on single pieces of paper, that way, if I really mess up, I can just toss on page instead of ruining my notebook. Once I’ve written it, I’ll copy it into my notebooks.

    Please remember this is my first post so it may be a little rough. Sorry! Any questions?

  • soccerkid on June 10th, 2019 - 12:18pm

     

    I have no questions! That was amazing! Good job. I have introduced some of my characters the way you have described, while other times I haves introduced a fast-paced action scene, then slow it down and introduce the characters.


  • Rilla on June 10th, 2019 - 1:02pm

     

    @coolcuz
    Thanks for doing this! I’m really looking forward to seeing your next posts.


  • Jell-o on June 10th, 2019 - 2:14pm

     

    @CoolCuz,
    I love writing! I will definitely be looking out for your posts. I struggle with middles: I would have this great idea and have a great time writing it, but the story has no bone structure, so it falls apart, and by that time I don’t have enough interest in it anymore to try and piece it back together! Any tips?


  • Jell-O on June 10th, 2019 - 3:54pm

     

    Great job, COOLCUZ! Thanks for doing this.


  • Rilla on June 10th, 2019 - 4:23pm

     

    @JELL-O
    I love writing too, but I have the same problem as you, lol!


  • PeterF on June 10th, 2019 - 4:57pm

     

    this is cool! thanks for doing this. I’m interested in writing but most of the time i don’t finish my stories.


  • Jell-o on June 11th, 2019 - 4:16am

     

    How many people are allowed to do lessons?


  • Coolcuz on June 11th, 2019 - 5:45am

     

    LESSON 2.:
    I’m doing this lesson on a question that JELL-O asked: Middles to stories. I used to have a terrible time with middles, but as I kept going, I got much better at middles. I would have a great beginning and a great ending but absolutely no middle.
    How do I do middles? First off, I don’t immediately begin writing my story when I get a great beginning, I wait. I plan out the basic story line and what’s going to happen. Sometimes I’ll even play out in my mind the story and- CONT.
    -CC


  • Coolcuz on June 11th, 2019 - 5:52am

     

    LESSON 2. CONT:
    And I would become that character for awhile. I would first write my beginning and ending idea in a small notebook so I wouldn’t forget it. In my mind, I would play my ideas out until I found the perfect middle. I would ask myself these questions:
    What happens in my ending?
    What happens in my beginning?
    How do I connect the two?
    I would find the best way I could make the story go on. Practice makes perfect. I got much better as I would go on.
    CONT.
    -CC


  • Coolcuz on June 11th, 2019 - 5:58am

     

    LESSON 2. CONT.:
    Remember, the middle is what pulls the whole story together and is one of the most important parts in the story. If its a mystery, you need the detective to find clues. If its a romance, it’s got to have mushy, yucky stuff like that. Playing out my characters really helps me.

    TIP TIME:
    When I write out my stories, I use a pen. Sometimes my pens will run out of ink. If the same thing happens to you, never mind it! Different colors makes it fun!

    Any questions? Comments?

  • COolcuz on June 11th, 2019 - 2:09pm

     

    @JELL-O:
    A good way to revive interest in a story is to retread it carefully. Think about how you could finish it or what you could add (or take away) to make a complete story. Sometimes I look at my story and go “well forget that!” and I’ll toss it. But that doesn’t happen often.

  • soccerkid on June 11th, 2019 - 4:29pm

     

    @ COOLCUZI wouldn’t mind having homework. Maybe so things stay fair, we rotate people doing the lessons each week/day. Totally a suggestion though. Would anybody want to do that?

  • COolcuz on June 12th, 2019 - 5:05am

     

    LESSON 3.:
    Today’s lesson is on how to bring Christ into your stories. I’ve brought Him into several of my stories. Maybe you’ve wanted to know how, here are some ways you can do that:
    Make one of your characters can pray or recite a Bible verse. One of my mystery books I wrote, the girl got kidnapped. The girl was afraid in the first book and recited Psalm 56:3 (I think this is the correct verse). It helped her.
    CONT.

  • Coolcuz on June 12th, 2019 - 5:10am

     

    LESSON 3.:
    In another book in the series, she prayed that God would bless their clubhouse. In yet another book, she got kidnapped again. This time she was not afraid. Her kidnapper couldn’t understand why she wasn’t afraid. She explained that she wasn’t afraid because she knew God was in charge and would protect her. She brought her kidnapper to Christ.
    That’s some ways you could bring Jesus into your stories. You could even make a story about a missionary or pastor.
    CONT.
    -CC


  • COolcuz on June 12th, 2019 - 5:15am

     

    LESSON 3. CONT.:
    You may make a whole story about Christ or mention him a few times. You could do a lot to bring Him into your stories. If you let people borrow your stories, you never know who may need to hear about Christ. Your stories could even bring people to Christ.

    TIP TIME:
    Don’t bother with outlines. They can be frustrating and difficult.

  • COolcuz on June 12th, 2019 - 8:53am

     

    If anyone wants to participate, I will have a little home work section at the end of my lesson. It will be something for you to type out and post. Again, if you don’t want to, you don’t have to. No pressure! The only thing I ask is that you please type this ontop of your comment if you do the homework things: “HOMEWORK ANSWERS.” this just helps me know who is doing and who isn’t. If no body does it, I’ll quit doing it.

    In my story that’s modeled after a The Exodus, God is called Allto. I began the name with a “A” and ended it with a “O” to symbolize The Alpha and Omega. Jesus was called the Alpha and Omega in the Book of Revelation. Is that kinda what you meant?

    LESSON:
    Today’s lesson is on how to make your character sound interesting. When you introduce your character, make it sound interesting! Your character needs to sound interesting or people aren’t going to read your story.
    How do you make your person sound interesting? Describing their personality really helps.
    Are they friendly and sweet or grumbly and annoying? Do they help others or are they selfish? Here is an example of a colorful explanation of a character…….

    LESSON CONT.:
    – Addy Mitchell was one of the sweetest girls in the whole school. She was the class president and also was in the drama club. Any time someone needed anything, you could count on Addy to be there helping.
    Clarissa Devonché, however, was the complete opposite of Addy. She was normally the one to cause the problems, cheat on tests and quizzes, and bully other children. She would make fun of the hurt or the student who was struggling instead of helping them.-

    Remember to use good, appropriate adjectives to describe your character. Also, make sure you follow those descriptions later on in your story and not contradict them in any way (sure, your character can get sad or angry! Everyone does!) That’s important to do!

    TIP TIME:
    Write any future character ideas down in a small notebook do you don’t forget them.

    HOMEWORK:
    Type out a description in a comment about a character. Make sure to use colorful adjectives!

    Any questions?

    HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:
    Gary Len had always had problems with Joseph Clarence. Gary had always been the best with the broadsword and foil, and I’ve mastered the art of writing of course in full armor. Joseph on the other hand, could not seem to get any of it right besides picking pockets. Joseph was not trusted nor liked. He had red hair and a quick temper and would snap at you for almost nothing. Even though he himself disobey the rules, he would yell at you if you did one thing wrong, unlike Gary

    HOMEWORK ANSWERS:
    – Nadia O’Brein was a peasant girl, the first daughter of a shepherd who lived in the Outer Vales. Nadia was tall, slender, and had the curliest hair of everyone in her village, which annoyed her. But to the few friends she had that were her age, she was loyal, and empathetic. Whatever trouble one girl was going through, Nadia had gone through before, and she knew just what was needed to made her friend smile again.

    Well,I’ll give an example describing myself for the homework thing: (it really does)
    – Her name was Audrey (the last name isn’t really mine) Nisly. She had brownish blonde wavy hair and odd greenish colored eyes. She wore glasses that seemed determined to slide down her nose, no matter what she did. Some called her pretty, but she really wasn’t. She had a heart for children of all ages: babies, toddlers, and school aged. Her mind was always on stories or books and her from was full of both.-

    Minnie Knight was a quiet girl and hardly uttered a word unless she was spoken to . She kept mostly to herself and nobody paid much attention to her, Minnie went about almost as a shadow unnoticed.Though if anyone ever took the time to know her they would know she had a heart of gold and an adventurous spirit.
    Sorry I know I haven’t commented hear much but I have read the lessons and I thought this homework assignment sounded fun. Lol :p lol idk how good my description was though.

    I’ve decided to do a lesson only every other day, starting next week. If anyone else wants to do a lesson on the off days for me, just let me know! I’ll welcome any lessons (who knows, I may learn something cool!). This just helps me out because of our moving. I’ll do a lesson on Monday, so Tuesday and Thursday are open. If nobody wants to do it, that’s okay with me too. Reminder: we take a break with our moderators and don’t do lessons on Saturday or Sunday.

    Judd Crandle, a muscular, chestnut haired boy was playing catch with his little brother, an energetic and chubby boy named Ryan. Judd threw a fastball. His brother tried to catch it, but missed.
    “Hey, that’s okay, dude. That was a hard one to get.” Judd smiled. His brother looked up and nodded. After another twenty catches, Judd decided to switch to something easier for Ryan’s sake.
    “Do you want to play soccer?”?Ryan frowned. “But you need the practice for your baseball team.”
    Judd shrugged. “I can practice later.”
    Ryan beamed. “Okay, I’ll get the soccer ball.

    LESSON:
    My lesson today is on how to make your stories read better by doing one simple thing: not using the word said 80,000 times!
    What, you ask, is wrong with using the word said? Nothing, IF you don’t over use it. Let me give you an example of over using the word said:
    – “Don’t touch the stove, Aaron!”, said Mother.
    “Aww, Maw! You never let me!” said Aaron.
    “That’s because you can burn yourself,” said Mother.
    “Oh,” said Aaron.-
    See what I mean? Too many ‘saids’.

  • COolcuz on June 14th, 2019 - 7:27am

     

    LESSON CONT.:
    (Yes, I know that dialogue was totally corny, it was just an example)
    So how do you change that? You can do it by simple replacing the word ‘said’. What do you replace it with? How about more colorful words like asked, questioned, responded, replied, snorted, giggled, shrieked, murmered, whispered, shouted, roared, laughed, and the list goes on and on and on…….. Well, I hope you get the picture.
    I’ll give another example in a minute……..

    – “Where were you on the morning of August 6?”questioned the detective.
    “I was at my store, minding my own business (no pun intended) when a crook came into my store.” Miss Lacey answered in a nervous tone of voice.
    “How do you know it was a crook?” Detective Bankin asked.
    “He wore a ski mask!”the scared lady responded.-
    You can use the word said occasionally, but don’t over do it! It doesn’t sound good at all when you read it out loud (or in your head!).

  • COolcuz on June 14th, 2019 - 7:39am

     

    LESSON CONT.:
    I hope this helped you all in your writing. We should always be alert to making our stories sound better! (that’s actually what Monday’s lesson is about!)

    TIP TIME:
    I always use whiteout, because I write with pens. I prefer the liquid whiteout pens to the bottles because you don’t get too much on your paper by accident.

    HOMEWORK:
    Write a short dialogue between two people. Avoid using the word ‘said’.

    Naomi examined his outfit. “That sweater makes you look like a pickle,” she pointed out matter-of-factly.
    Borvis frowned. “That’s the idea.”
    “Oh.” Naomi reconsidered. “Good, then.”
    “Great,” Borvis muttered, rolling his eyes. “You can’t even tell I’m supposed to be a pickle. Who’s idea was this costume party, anyway?”

    “It all seemed good for me,” replied Leo.
    “That figures. You always get stuff right,” sighed Joe.
    “Do you need help? We have awhile till the next test, so I can help you, if you want,” asked Leo.

    Homework:
    The sun sank low in the sky, coloring everything it could touch crimson; including the tear streaked face of the girl who sat before it. It tinted her blond hair orange, and seemed to caress her cheeks with its warmth. The sky was lit up with the most beautiful colors, but Nora didn’t see any of it, though her eyes were open and were gazing straight into it. The fact was that her deep brown eyes, which were now swimming in tears, hadn’t ever and wouldn’t ever see a sunset.
    CONT…


  • Bookworm on June 14th, 2019 - 2:57pm

     

    CONT…
    Yes, Nora was blind; but it didn’t make her depressed or angry. Nora Armstrong was one of those people who seem to always be peaceful and happy. The reason for this was that Nora was leaning on the Everlasting Arm of the Good Shepherd. Knowing that He was leading her made her feel secure and loved. Only one burden shadowed her joy, and that burden was why she was sitting on a hill overlooking the sea and crying. But she knew that the Shepherd had a plan and all she had to do was trust.

    Word of the day sounds fun! I’m all for it.


  • COolcuz on June 17th, 2019 - 1:27pm

     

    LESSON:
    How do you make your stories sound interesting? This will be a to day lesson. The second part will be on Wednesday. One way you can do that is to sound more educated. I don’t mean talking like Eugene, I mean something different.
    We already discussed changing the word said. You can change other words and it truly makes your book ( FYI: if I say book, I mean book or story) sound way more educated. What can you change? How do you do that? Well……….
    TBC (to be continued)
    -CC


  • COolcuz on June 17th, 2019 - 1:33pm

     

    LESSON CONT.:
    Verbs can be changed (especially action verbs) and you can get a much more colorful picture. The best way to explain is with an example.
    – Madelyn Shink wearily trudged up the steep embankment of the long dried riverbed. Her arms ached and felt as though they were on fire, for the weight of her packages was great. Dirt clung to her clothing and the wind blew with fierceness at the small waif.
    Would she ever arrive at the Kinderdough mansion? Still, she pressed on……

  • Jell-O on June 17th, 2019 - 1:34pm

     

    Today’s new word is…
    Exacerbate: vb.- To make something more intense or sharp; aggravate. OR To exasperate, annoy, or embitter; to irritate.


  • COolcuz on June 17th, 2019 - 1:39pm

     

    LESSON CONT.:
    After what seemed like an eternity to the young orphan, she arrived at the mansion.
    She stumbled up the carved stairs and lifted the brass knocker.
    The door was opened and a gruff maid roughly took the packages.
    ” Be off with you now!”, she growled.
    Madelyn glanced past her at the roaring fire on the hearth and the gorgeous tapestries on the walls. Reluctantly, the outcast turned and walked out into the now pouring rain and sleet.-
    TBC.

  • COolcuz on June 17th, 2019 - 1:47pm

     

    LESSON CONT.:
    See what I mean? Using different verbs and adjectives really changes how a story sounds. If I had used the word “went” or so, it wouldn’t have been as interesting, would it? Cut out the bigger, fancier words and it’s plain and dull. Use bigger and better words and get bigger and better results.

    TIP TIME:
    Find a new word, find out what it means and include it in your story.

    HOMEWORK:
    Write out a paragraph using colorful verbs. Try to sound educated!

    HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:
    Jake skidded to a stop right in front of the baker’s shop. His nose was smashed against the glass as he peered hungrily inside at the fresh-baked rolls and glazed buns displayed in the window, and his frosty breath made a cloud on the glass. Every time a wealthy customer opened the door, he strained to catch a whiff of the warm, cinnamon-y smell that wafted from inside the bakery.
    Suddenly, he heard a voice at his elbow. “Did you get enough to eat today?”

    It was Nancy, that ragged, begging errand girl who had to hire herself out to snotty rich folk for only a halfpenny per person just so she could eat. She never left Jake alone; sort of watched out for him, even though she was a year younger and two times smaller.
    “Yes,” Jake responded indifferently, shouldering his chimney sweep brooms. “Master Thompson feeds me just fine.”
    “Then why are you wasting daylight dawdling in front of the bakery?”
    Jake didn’t respond.

    Nancy fished around in her pocket and pulled out a whole shilling, which she proudly displayed in her palm! “Ran into a nice old lady in a big house, full of real dirty rooms. She wanted to give me something extra for my trouble. Probably enough to buy a few rolls. Enough to share.”
    Jake wanted to argued, but his stomach and his common sense were on Nancy’s side. Somehow, he’d have to make it up to her. Eventually. –

    Word of the day is…
    Exceedingly: adv. – I’m sure you guy already know what this means, but I’ll give the definition anyway – extremely; very; to a great amount; extraordinarily.

    This word is just much better than “really” or “very”, so try to use it in your writing today as a replacement for those words. It will make your writing more colorful, and make it sound more educated, like COOLCUZ talked about in her lesson.

    Jim inhaled sharply. Smells of fresh laid hay, buttery pretzels, dirty poultry, and sweaty people enriched his nose. His shining eyes received different facts constantly. Sounds of people chattering, crowds laughing and cars slamming into each other buzzed in his ears. In a crowd of this magnitude, Jim wold walk away rich. He began to move at the crowds pace, coalescing with bodies.

    Vendors venturing to tempt someone at a silly game loitered the teeming road.
    Jim sucked in air and began to scrutinise the throng for bulky purses. He eyed one EXCEEDINGLY large black purse and eased his path closer to the surefire wealth. His lofty frame gave him an advantage. He peered over the woman’s shoulder into the dark oblivion. He squinted as something gleaming seized his view.

    Jim fell back a few paces, observing the people around him, growing angry at how many people there were. He eventually sped up and thrust his hand into the purse. He rapidly fingered several items. His frustration was EXACERBATED by the fact that he couldn’t find the wallet. Finally he discovered the correct one. He clutched it and drew his hand back out. He banked right, into the cow exhibit. Mission accomplished.

    Theo raced forward, his shoes digging into the turf. A ear-splitting whine filled the air, followed by a explosion that rocked the earth. It knocked him to the ground, grinding his face into the dirt. He leapt back up his feet and pulled out his six-shooter. Machine-gun bullets ripped through the air above him and he cocked his pistol. Three men appeared in front of him with guns drawn. He knocked them back as quick as they had come up. The battle was on.

Flens had lost about 300 men, but had taken 1,893 prisoners. They sent a message to Flens to say, “Give us $30,000, or we will kill all of these prisoners in two days!” Toaple was not able to pay, so all the prisoners were slaughtered, EXACERBATING the situation and lengthening the war by two years.

    @Coolcuz
    Two questions. First, are you not doing lessons on Tuesdays and Thursdays?

    Also, every time a new podcast comes out, should we move the writers page up one podcast so it doesn’t get buried?

    Verse of the day:
    Proverbs 13:12 KJV “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.”
    I hope it teaches you!

    Verse of the day:
    1 Peter 4:14 KJV “If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye ; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.”
    I hope it encourages you!

    LESSON:
    Good morning! Today’s lesson is on adding words from other languages into your stories. That can be easy or difficult. One thing is important: always have the translations in it to! I’ve read books where they didn’t have the translations and it was very hard to follow.
    Maybe one of your characters is from another country. I wrote two stories with other languages in it. One was where they were in Hawaii and a few of the locals spoke some Hawaiian. I did the Hawaiian word and…
    CONT.


  • Coolcuz on June 24th, 2019 - 7:38am

     

    LESSON CONT.:
    And then I put the English translation next to it. Example:
    -“You are so NANI (beautiful),”Nanea cried.-

    In another story, there was a lot of foreign words and it would take too long to put the parenthesis in, so I put all of the foreign words in the end of my notebook and put the English translations next to it. I put a note at the beginning so people would know I had translations. Example:
    – SÍ = yes
    Hola = hello
    Adios = goodbye-

    It’s not hard to do, but remember…
    CONT


  • Coolcuz on June 24th, 2019 - 7:43am

     

    LESSON CONT.:
    Remember to always have the translations! That is very important!!
    I get some of the words I need from the encyclopedia or dictionaries. You can learn several words from the encyclopedia! I love my set! I hope I made sence and that you understand what I’m saying and maybe you even learned a new word or two!

    TIP TIME:
    If you don’t have an encyclopedia set, check your thrift stores for a cheep set. You won’t regret it!

    { No homework for today.}
    Any questions or complaints?

    HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:
    Liz gasped for breath. That last cobra had seemed to have taken pleasure in throwing her to the ground. “It’s a miracle I survived!”
    Suddenly a hissing sound filled the air as a gargantuan head reared out of a ditch in front of her. The head was followed by a neck, and more neck, and more. It was a huge cobra. But not just huge, EXCEEDINGLY huge.
    Liz sighed, and lept at the cobra, grabbing onto its head and swinging off behind it. As she ran, it followed. The chase was on.

    @CoolCuz
    Do you think we should move the writers page up one podcast? Otherwise I’m afraid it will eventually be buried.

    @COOLCUZ,
    Was that Spanish? Cool!

    Aww, I like homework! LOL
    Great job, COOLCUZ! I am writing a story about an Indian tribe, and I wanted to use a lot of old Native-American names and words. Thanks for your tips!

    @SOCCERKID
    Great usage of the words for the day! Speaking of which…
    Today’s Word of the Day is:

    Prominent: adj.- important or famous, eminent, leading; distinguished; OR Standing out, evident or noticeable; OR conspicuous, discernible, detectable.


  • soccerkid on June 24th, 2019 - 5:38pm

     

    @EVERYONE: Thanks so much for the compliments! They mean a lot.
    @ JELL-O: Thanks for doing Word of the Day. It’s a nice tidbit to look forward to! 🙂 Also, great job on your homework assignment as well! The story came alive in my mind!


  • Coolcuz on June 25th, 2019 - 7:26am

     

    @SOCCERKID:
    Yeah, I read a lot of detective stories and write some of my own. I tend to pick up on some things befor other people do. 🙂

    @WWIININJA:
    Yes, I’m only posting lessons on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It’s easier for me that way. I think as long as we keep posting links to this page every time a new podcast comes out, we’ll be fine. The agency is thriving and their page is in 2018! Thanks for your concern though!

    NO LESSON TODAY. SORRY, EVERYONE! Glad you like the homework!

    WORD HOMEWORK:
    Miss Carlotta Jane Hamesford was one of the most PROMINENT citizens of Bayton, England. Her reputation was great among the near lands and even several of the distant ones.
    She was big into charity and supported many foreign missions and orphanages. Many people asked her why she bothered to support orphanages. Her response surprised many:
    “If you grew up an orphan, one knows the struggles and hardships they encounter. Let’s just say, I understand what they’re going through.”

    Did you want me to do lessons Tuesdays and Thursdays? Your comment disappeared, so I’m just double checking. 🙂

    Word of the Day:
    Lacy cautiously wandered into the musty book store. Her sharp eyes scanned the countless novels. “May I help you?” a booming voice interrupted her thoughts. She rapidly looked into a man’s face. He had a couple days’ growth of beard, and a narrow mouth. His nose was compact and his cheekbones were jutting out. She raised her freckled face to gaze into his thin, green eyes, with PROMINENT dark eyebrows. Mops of shaggy brown hair covered parts of his wrinkled forehead.

    The duke’s cabinet was in an uproar. Their nation’s navy had been attacked by the Kleans. Everyone wanted their idea to be heard at once, so there was much confusion.
    It wasn’t until General Terence Mithherd, a PROMINENT figure in the duke’s court, slammed his sword on the table and roared, “SILENCE! We will not help anyone if we do not control ourselves. My lord duke, will you start us off with your idea?”
