Hey guys! It’s time for another round of print wars! This time the prompt is to write a mystery.
Sounds pretty cool! I was an avid Nancy Drew reader as a kid, but I’ve never actually written a mystery.
Due in two weeks.
We’ve all been struck by writer’s block at one point or another. We lament the shortage of words and wait impatiently for inspiration to return. But even when we’re unable to make progress on a project, most of us […]
Thank you guys for all your input! This is going to be very helpful. I’ll pass it along.
And no one needs to feel bad about inactivity. I see the notifications too, and then space it off. Everyone has busy lives to live. I’m fighting some morning sickness and can’t handle looking at a screen for very long, so I haven’t felt up to doing much of…[Read more]
As you’ve probably noticed, activity has been pretty low here. It’s the same with the other guilds.
That’s fine if everyone’s busy, but if it’s just because the guilds weren’t attractive enough…
Well, we should do something about that then.
After talking it over with the other SE staff, We have an idea. This isn’t a…[Read more]

Today’s post is written by Faith Kochanowski, and it’s a good one.
How to deal with procrastination
Procrastination. It’s a nasty little dragon that often grows ginormous at the most inconvenient times. For instance, the last week of NaNoWriMo. It will bring in other things such as a new shelf that needs a place in the living room which fac…[Read more]
Any luck this week?
If not, no worries.
The deadline is midnight tonight if anyone wants to take a crack at it, otherwise it’s no big deal and I’ll just let the judge know we have no submission this time.
Sounds good to me!
Thoughts everyone else?
We only have till this Sunday if we’re going to write it.

And now this weeks post! By me!
Handling critiques and criticism
Letting others see our work is probably one of the hardest parts of being a writer. That’s our heart and soul out there at the mercy of prying eyes.
It’s probably one of the most essential parts of writing though.
Without sharing our writing, there is no way we…[Read more]
I forgot to post last weeks talk guys! Sorry. It’s by Brandon Miller.
Okay so all of you have gone through the phase where writing isn’t “fun” anymore, right? It’s not necessarily that you’re stuck or that you don’t have a good idea or that your book isn’t going well… it’s just that given the choice to curl up on the couch and watch Net…[Read more]
That all sounds awesome!
Off the top of my head I’m remembering the beginning, and then when she’s talking to Sahran the first time with his siblings. Neither scene is bad, and you’ve got some great details, but there’s also stuff there that doesn’t further the plot or give any necessary information. That could be trimmed a bit.
Today we start a prompt war!
The Prompt: Write a story where you bring out the beauty of something ordinary in the middle of a very dramatic setting
1. Everyone can help plot and edit, but only one person can write the story.
2. 2500 word limit.
3. The war starts today and runs for two weeks. Writing must be…[Read more]
I have a hard time leaving comments on my phone, so I’ll just post my overall thoughts here.
Let me start by saying, overall, I really like this! It’s definitely a good start.
I have a few questions and I think fleshing them out would really help this story shine, and still wouldn’t leave you with a super long story.
So I had n…[Read more]
This is really cool! I really liked the cultural vibes in the setting.
It’s a short story, but I liked the characters and feel like I was given enough info to get to know them relatively well for the story.
I loved her horse, and was especially intrigued by the earth verses jewel aspect of living beings. If you wanted to, I t…[Read more]
Self Publishing vs Traditional Publishing
I think it’s safe to say that most writers have a ‘one day’ dream of getting published: having your book on the shelves of total strangers and sharing your story with the world.
But there’s always that big question: are you going to self publish or traditional publish?
There’s no right or wrong whe…[Read more]
