Hi my name is Zoe and I have dyslexia. this means that I am not as good as at Reading Writing spelling memorization math facts. and I also have ADHD which means I'm not very good at focusing in very loud environments and on things I don't like. but I am low on the spectrum of ADHD then dyslexia I'm very high on the spectrum of dyslexia. so I have severe dyslexia but not ADHD. I love New Moon girls but it is very text heavy which can be hard for me. so I wanted to start a discussion to see if there's any other girls who have similar problems with this site. I have a feature on my tablet that it will read to me but it will not read this site to me it says it is busy. these are some ways we can help: 

  • in role-plays if someone asks to catch them up catch them up and don't say read it maybe they can't and if you leading a role-play or discussion add little ketchups in your description every few pages it's a lot easier to read a paraphrase thing 
  • do not insist on proper spelling or grammar that can be very difficult for some people
  • be kind if someone don't perfectly get what's going on just fill them in and be nice

if you have any more ideas on ways people can help please tell me and I will include them. so I want this to be a conversation I want people to ask questions and talk about it. I haven't found any other discussions about these topics.

And ways New Moon girls staff can help:

  • work on it audio programs for this site like if it could read parts of the site to you like stories role-plays things like that I've no idea how possible this is. so if this is not possible no problem just wanted to get it out there.
  • Adding a text that is easier to read

and some of these things can help blind people with the site to

I'm sorry if there's any  misspelling and o bad grandma bad grammar bad punctuation Etc

Preparing For Your Period

“I feel very unprepared about getting my first period. I don’t know exactly what happens and I am really worried about getting it at school. I wouldn’t want to talk to anyone about it and I don’t feel comfortable talking to my mom about it ahead of time either. Would I be able to just use a wad of toilet paper instead of a pad for a day until I get home and can ask my mom for one? Where would I keep pads after I did get my period if I had it at school? I just feel uninformed and unprepared and…

Redesigning Characters

"Do you have any advice on redesigning characters? I have an old one I want to polish up and I'm not sure how to go about it." -Willa While I don’t have a lot of experience redesigning characters visually, I have a bit more experience with reworking characters that I’ve created in pieces of writing. After thinking about your question a little, I think that both crafts tend to come down to the same core pieces, so hopefully my advice will help you out whether you’re looking to work on visual…

Too Much To Do

Not a People Person

"Okay i am going to very very clear...I need advice from someone older than me. I am not very much a people person like I don't talk much around other people how would you say I deal with this?" - Anonymous Hi! I’m not very much of a “people person” myself, and am generally very shy and quiet in social settings, so I definitely understand this. As I know firsthand, it can be hard being less socially inclined than those around us… but I’m actually going to start by suggesting that, contrary to…
