In the relatively short time I've been here I've noticed that this board is one of the quieter of the guilds. So tell us what you want from the WG?

Do you want literature-related games? Do you want help with your own writing? Do you want critiques on your own work or do you just want to have your work read by someone other than your English teacher? Is it author biographies you want or regular competitions to showcase your own work?

You tell us what you want and we'll see what we can conjure up.

Let there be life people!  ;)  :?  :D

Uhm, critiques on stories and stuff would be kinda cool, actually. :? Or something like on theforce.net where people post their stories bit by bit and people comment on them in between takes? Just an idea.

Oh, and I don't wanna jump down anyone's throat, but it'd help if you guys actually put submitted stories on your site. ;)

How about jumping on heads instead?  :P I know the competition stories are up, but I don't know if we're still getting submissions? Will have to ask.

I like the idea of posting stories bit by bit, I can see the benefits for helping someone to develop their techniques and help build confidence in a persons abilities. I know a lot of people will write something and it will never see the light of day as they think it's rubbish *raises hand*

I don't feel qualified to give critiques and I know others don't either, but if we're all willing to be patient with each other while we learn then I'm sure we could probably get that idea off the ground, I suppose it all depends on how the indiviual author feels, so perhaps having them ask for critiques if they want it on their work?

I submitted a story about five months ago and it hasn't been put on the website yet.

Why can't people post their stories right here in the Creative Writing forum?

It is frustrating for people. Members cannot get something out there for the enjoyment of other OTF'ers due to delays for whatever reason. That's the case in many areas of OTF it seems at times.

It has happened to me on a few occasions, when i began working at OTF i went over a year before anybody saw anything i did. Now i got my Space forum, its all in my own hands. I can get stuff out there immediantly.

Surely it would take the pressure off whoever is working hard to get this stuff on a website. It would also generate interest, make releases of peoples projects more frequent, maybe the whole thing would snowball from there?

It seems like we have a place here ( the forums ) where people could post various projects for us all to see. It would still be under the banner of the Creative Writing section if it was placed in that forum.

Then maybe all the guys making the site have to do is copy and paste from here. It would also give those submitting a chance react to comment before the submission was deemed final. If there is a delay before the final draft went on a specialist site.

My comments can be taken for any projects at OTF. I just happen to read this topic today.

I would really like to visit and read peoples work. :)
