Batman The Real Superhero?

by limebirdsophie

Batman is one of those icons that almost everyone knows; whether you have read comics or not, chances are you know ‘The Batman’. Here’s the thing, he’s generally placed into the superhero genre but don’t forget he has no super powers he is just a man. Yes he’s a billionaire but he’s still just a man, he doesn’t have a magic hammer, super strength, the ability to fly or a pretty green ring but he does fight for justice and the good people of Gotham with nothing but his string of side kicks* and his trusty butler Alfred.

That is why many people say he isn’t a real super hero he is just a hero, so here’s my thoughts:

So far for Limebird, I have only written one post. Several weeks have passed since then, and every time I have sat down to write, I have started an idea only to dismiss it as irrelevant, or ‘something that nobody on here would be interested in’, or just because I thought it was a bit rubbish.

However, this morning, Beth gently reminded us Limebird Writers that most of us er, hadn’t written anything for a while, so I decided to go against my instincts and write something anyway.

Na-Now What?

by limebirdkate

For me, NaNoWriMo 2011 is over. I crossed the finish line November 26 at 50,671 words. After I validated my novel at the NaNoWriMo site, I downloaded a winner’s badge, looked into getting Scrivener at half-off, checked in on my writing buddies’ progress, and in general basked in the warm glow of completing another NaNo novel.

Sorry Book, It’s Over…

by limebirdwriters

I’ve read a lot of books in my time, and it’s very rare that I will put one down and stop reading. I’m a big believer in giving books a chance and slugging on, even if I read them for a bit, put them down and then come back to them. I normally give a book around a chapter or so to really grip me, but if I can feel the potential, I’ll give it a little longer. So, it has to be pretty bad for me to actually put it down for good, but what makes this happen?

I never really like speaking badly of a book and this is because as a writer myself, I know how bloomin hard it is to write one! You dedicate so much of your time into piecing it together, so it’s never nice to read that someone hasn’t enjoyed it. So with this is mind, I’m going to try my best to look at this from the point of view of a reader instead of a writer.
