My Favorite Stories on HubPages -Wr1t3r


I am a reader. That is what brought me to hubpages. I came to read stories. I do not care whether they are short or book length, I just like to read stories. Letting my imagination soar with the story is my passion. I do not seem to have the imagination to write one and that just drives me nuts.

I thought I would let you all in on some of my favorite stories that are on hubpages. These are the ones that I have enjoyed and are still on hubpages. Some writers will take their stories off when they publish the book and I will try not to put those on here.

The Line That Divides

Wr1t3r has a story that she is writing called 'The Line That Divides'. She has 11 chapters of it written and adds a new one about once a week. It is the story of a young woman, still in school, who is caught up in Nazi Germany. She is an Austrian girl who is in boarding school in Berlin; and her friends and thoughts during the time. The school is damaged during a bombing and closes. She goes back to her home in Austria, where her mother is living. Her father is in the German army, using his translation skills. He joined under pressure and has not been home in a while.

The story has some young American aviators getting shot down close by and hiding on their property until they can leave. The Nazi's arrive hunting for them and move onto her mother's property. Tense, exciting and complicated plotting and excellent writing make this definitely a good story. She writes with skill and her plots and dialogue are excellent. Her dialogue is never stilted or confusing. The plots are complex but totally logical and understandable.

Another story that she has written is 'The Followers of Galashad'. This would be in the sci-fi fantasy genre. She writes in several genre's equally well. This story is of a people that have lost their home through invasion and the few who escape go to another area to found a new dynasty. They are led by one of the priestesses, whose son is destined to be the leader of the new dynasty. This is an engrossing story and well thought out. The characters are well developed, interesting and likeable. The invading force is demonic and controlling. The situations that the people find themselves in are interesting and plausible. Definitely a good read.

She seems to start a new story shortly after she finishes one. You are never wondering if she will ever write another one. She has good ideas for her stories. The only thing that you should know is that she does not answer comments immediately. She is an airline hostess and her work interferes with that.

Wr1t3r has written other stories as well and they are great adventures. Plots and actions in these are believable and well constructed. I have questioned one thing in the three 20 plus chapter stories that I have read. She clarified that in the story to make it clear what the action was. The dialogue is real, intelligent and clear. There is a good bit of humor as well as the love stories, action, and intrigue in her stories. These are definitely worth reading. They are a good, fun read.

Melanie has published her first books and they are available on Amazon.

The first is The Ring of Remaliha. It is a fascinating mystery with archaeology and a good read.

The second is The Line That Divides. It is the story of a young girl during WWII. This is intense and full of history. Loved the story and I am very happy to hear she has gotten it published.

Yes, Annart, it is kind and courteous to let us know how we are doing. I like a lot of different writers on HubPages and I try to read all of their stories. I do not confess to being an expert but when you read as much as I do, you learn to separate the wheat from the chaff. I believe that Wr1t3r is wheat. Thank you for coming by to visit. I hope you will enjoy her writing.

She's not only an excellent author, but apparently one heck of an artist as well. The illustration of Aerikai REEKS of power.

Voted Up and Thanks!

Becky,

As I read your reviews, I am reminded of a guide and a teacher... you are enticing the reader to want to read these stories by your descriptions and succinct analysis. I love this series!

I will be checking out Wr1t3r as time permits.

Voted UP & UABI. Hugs, mar.

Hurry over to read her recent story that she just finished Peg. She takes them off shortly after finishing them. She is a wonderful writer and I really think you will like this last one. Magic, mystery and adventure all in one.
