    I know there is a few people on good all m2a who like to write. Shall we join together and help each other? Critic, edit work and etc.

    I tried attending at my school but its so darn hard. 8 pm at night.

    Check Out:
    Write or Die Its to make you write or else your writing gets deleted.

    nanowrimo Its a honor code contest where you write 50,000 words in November. 1,667 words a day. At the end you have to submit your words for a count. It doesn't save it. But you will get a novel out of it. Nickname is Basher there.

    :Edit: Are we just going to post in this thread? Or shall we all flock to our own area to post and critique? Like the Creative Writing forum under the art tab? :p

    B-tuvs, I understand. I have a list of the common mistakes in grammar I do. Probably find more.

    Good idea.

    So... What are we going to write about???
    Any ideas?
    I have something that I have been thinking since a long time ago, it's about exploring the alternate reality in dreams. I don't see many mangas or animes with this kind of theme.

    Double post. Oops. :D


    For those who want to join. Let's start writing. I was thinking of doing a weekly challenge. Maybe bi weekly if its to much.


    We will do a creative writing prompt. For a prompt an idea is given to write about for a given amount of time. In your style anyway you want. Its suppose to help you write better. Works on honor code here. Anyone have a great idea send me a message. Also do prompts with images at some point. Lots of fun I promise. xD

    Lets get down to business.

    Prompt #1
    Find something in the room you are in and write about for 3 minutes.


    Here is mine. Yu-Gi-Oh Cards.

    They didn’t belong there. It’s a rather small nuisance even with their numbering in hundreds but they are invading my space. My area by my computer isn’t at all entirely clean. I call it an organized mess. They still bugged me. It made me feel like they were staring at me no matter how ridiculous that sounds. Well some can actually look like “Double Snare,” “Jar Robber,” and “Premature Burial” but they are not really watching you just the humanoid with eyes art work. They are not that bad. They are just unwelcomed that is what the real problem lays. I had my time with others like them over a decade ago calling on the ‘heart of the cards’ winning battles and losing some. It’s my sons turn now. He felt the need to leave them in my space after he was done trading them. I grew up from them. I have no desire to go down memory road or even try my hand at them again. It’s a little unnerving how the swirling back of the cards means nothing to me now. The meaning of the main character has even left me. I used to swear by it. I toss the Yu-Gi-Oh cards back into my son room and that’s the end of it.


    On the agenda. Found out about a really cool/mean site that will help writers write. Called Write or Die Its to make you write or else your writing gets deleted. I am going to try it out this week. Have home work :( . One writing was enough for tonight. Let you all know how it goes.

    Finally, I am joining nanowrimo Its a honor code contest where you write 50,000 words in November. 1,667 words a day. At the end you have to submit your words for a count. It doesn't save it. But you will get a novel out of it. I heard that the novel "Water for Elephants" was done. I encourage others to join too. My nickname is basher. (shouldn't be surprised there)

    Well, I was thinking of a plot that is somewhat ironic. The idea is making the main character do the stuff he hates and being pursued by something related to what he hates. Rather than writing something that has a main character with an annoying hatred for stuff that many people dream of having like being chased by lots of pretty girls and getting irrationally annoyed with the attention he’s having. Although I must admit that I like the plot of the main guy character being chased by cute girls, but that plot is already being used way too often. Considering those factors I came up with the story plots for “Riza’s Parlor” I only managed to make some 10 plots which would only amount to 10 chapters. I must admit, I’m very much impressed with BM’s version which actually made me rethink about the entire story. Most of the stuff I put in the plots actually came from my dreams. I usually dream of being chased by zombies and I really want to put them in my writing. I have posted all 10 of the plots here somewhere, but because of my bad grammars the stories sounds kinda twisted and I’m not sure if I was able to convey the proper images and thoughts to the readers.

    b-tuvs, I make common mistakes in grammar also. I misplaced the list of mistakes I made so making a new one. Just an idea to start. I need to redo it. If you post any new work and I noticed grammar mistakes I'll point it out.

    thanks. I feel like writing again, though I'm not sure if I could pick up from the last chapter I have previously written.
