Unless one person's writing thing is just MASSIVE then I guess they could make their own thread for it, IDK. i may or may not do that because i have a fairly extensive writing project type thing but i also want to keep some things about it 'away from the public' as it were but bahasdhaslkajsd
This thread is for
- Posting random writing samples of yours for critique by others to help you improve
- Getting help with ideas for your writing projects
- Help with naming characters
- Just naming things in general, actually, people need help with that sometimes, I for one are TERRIBLE with names
- Developing concepts and characters
- Practicing writing with prompts
- How not to make Mary Sues
- Hopefully helping others onto the path to becoming better writers
- And other things related to your writings, the list could theoretically go on FOREVER
Things such as
- Outright hating on others' writing (though keep in mind that criticism IS NOT hate, but also that there is a relatively fine line between the two)
- Complaining about how bad someone's writing is
- Bullying others based on their creativity/lack thereof
- Telling people their writing/character is bad
(and they should feel bad)without offering advice/constructive criticism
- Just being an outright jerk in general
- Refusing to accept criticism/insulting those who offer constrictive criticism and advice
And so on are NOT allowed (or at least not accepted) in this topic. Telling people to stop writing because they are bad/their grammar/spelling is terrible is not a good thing to do.
EVERYONE CAN IMPROVE
and that's what this thread is here to help with! ?(?O?)?
ALSO, here's some helpful tools, I should've put these here earlier
So let's get things started with a prompt!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to describe an object of your choice without being overly vague, but it must flow well and not be over-descriptive.
HARD MODE; You must also not explicitly name your object, though words such as 'blade' are fine, if you're describing a sword
