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]
Excellent job you guys!!

We’ve got a war this week! I didn’t hear about it till today, but I’ll pretty sure anything you wrote yesterday also counts, since these are week long wars. The war ends midnight on Sunday, and your totals will need to be turned in on Monday.
This is for new writing. So if you’re editing, you only count the difference in words when yo…[Read more]
If you’re reading this, the chances are pretty high that you’re a writer. But how often do you tend to stop and think about what it means for you to say that? Being a writer often throws some interesting images out there, and not all of them are clear. This lesson’s goal? Stop, Think, Reflect, Do.
As with all words and decis…[Read more]
Okay so here is a first rough draft of that story I was telling you all about… I would love any feedback and suggestions the only thing I would ask is if you could make sure you are on suggestion vs editing mode if you want to type in the story. Other than that pls feel free to comment, suggest, let me know what you think of the characters any…[Read more]
Alrighty, so the officials ruled that Knaphollow didn’t get finished in time for the contest, but I read this anyway and am here with my judges comments.
WOW. Very good guys. Very, very good. First off, I’m a sucker for fantasy type settings, so a battlefield with swords and arrows instantly grabbed my attention.
The main character drove me abs…[Read more]
hi guys! This weeks post is by Daeus Lamb, and it’s really good. It’s cutrently pouring rain, so my writing is restricted to indoors, but I typically love writing outside.
Why to write outside
I’m writing this post outside. The sun is shining, and some trees provide shade. The stream is full and bubbling and a wind stirs the leave…[Read more]
Doc has been MASSIVELY updated, and I’m still going! All read throughs for the sake of grammar edits, comments, thoughts, and suggestions are HIGHLY…[Read more]
Hey guys, I’m stepping in for Maddie to give you a little reminder. 😉 Looks like you’ve done some great brainstorming, and now with the deadline coming up, it’s probably time to churn out the first draft!
hi guys! This weeks post is by Brandon Miller.
Even though I don’t fit in with the introverted, agoraphobic, germaphobic writer stereotype (see Alex Rover from “Nim’s Island”), I have to agree with them on one thing: People can be scary. That said, people can also be good friends. (Not as good friends as main characters or anything, but stil…[Read more]
Ooooooh. That sounds really cool!! I say go for it!
What does everyone else think?
I am going to be judging this round of stories so DO NOT tag me in your guys discussion of what your story is. I can’t know which one is ours. Biased decision and all that. I’m gonna get another guild master lined up to collect your submission, and help out as needed. Good luck guys!
sorry guys! I forgot to post this weeks discussion topic.
Getting a Professional Edit
If you’re pursuing publishing, whether traditional or self published, a professional editor is a must.
I’m not talking about the editor that the publishing house pairs you with, as I don’t have much personal knowledge to share on that.…[Read more]

So I hate to say this but lately, I have been doing everything but writing. Life has been crazy and I just have not given effort into setting aside time for writing. I have hardly even been on here as I am sure you all know. Wednesday though was the last day of my college classes (which I got an in both of if just barely in one) and I am finished…[Read more]

hi guys! So today I wrote the post for our weekly discussion. I don’t know if I mentioned it before, but the guild masters have been trying to cover things related to the general life of a writer, so hopefully you guys have been getting some helpful info.
