I imagine (and hope) that flamers will be dealt with by the mods.

The idea is to give constructive criticism, and that does not mean needlessly having a moan at the writer for their choice in storyline.

I'm not a furry fan myself but I see no problem is reading about it, as long as the story is compelling enough.

I think FanFiction.net should be the template for stories, especially huge novels. I mean, it's much easier to read in FanFictions format than it is on the BBS and it can hold so much more than a news post can.

Anything else should be submitted to the BBS, but don't think twice about using FanFiction if you have written a substantially large amount, it's easier on the eyes AND easier to format, not to mention every thread doesn't have to greet it's viewers will a dozen wall of texts.

Another good site is AFF (NSFW). Sure you have to be 18 to register and whatnot, but Slash frequents there quite a lot. In fact, that's where his Sinners fanfic is.

Speaking of fanfics, here's the official discussion thread for my fanfic.

As far as I'm concerned post away. Literotica is a valid genre, and even if the stuff has furries in it, it still counts.

Woo! I like this forum very much.

As for writing myself, I only have written a few pieces over the years. Most I just start out of impulse but when I get going, I get going.

Just wondering, what exactly is 'writing' limited to here? Stories I'm sure of, but how about essays, summaries, etc.?

I don't even think that the mods are exactly sure yet. I'm assuming it's going to be a trial and error thing until we've figured things that we want here as a community.

Sounds like an astute synopsis Fro. If one thing doesn't work, get rid of it, if part of one thing doesn't work where the other part does work, adjust the thing as needed to accommodate the rest of the users. Simple as that.

I'm about to start a series about strange mess up of time, and how one man is stuck in it, originally an idea for a game, I'm going to move it in to the writing medium, see how it goes, and if it goes well, it'll become a game.

I've entered a few writing contests in the past and had a great time creating pieces for them. I am looking forward to workshoping pieces in progress. The entry I submitted that tied for first was one I had workshoped many times over with my creative writing teacher, so to me i has become an ESSENTIAL part of my writing process. I really enjoy writing plays, and I am hoping to begin dabbling in scripts and screen plays.

Can't wait to collaborate with animators either!

I think this might turn out to be a pleasant forum.

Has anyone else here done some kinda extended literary analysis? Either lit major or IB (what I did baby stuff haha) or something?

Writing has influenced my life very well and helped a lot in school and it started one day when I was in Summer School (After the end of fifth grade) I didnt really need it but my mom made me go anyways and it got me straight As in sixth grade which is why I still do it because it was the best year ever. I was in the story writing forum before this forum was made so am I a regular?

Creative writing is half of my degree, and while I'm only in the first year, I've done a bit of analysis. I tend not to make my comments on NG too extended because in my experience, the writer doesn't have much of a use for something that goes on and on and doesn't pick out simple points. I do like writing about writing though. My most recent essay of this sort was on Shirley Jackson's 'The Lottery', though I've just finished a similar analysis of Woody Allen's film Deconstructing Harry, which I find is helpful too.

What have you written about? I'm curious!

I'm alot like that too. I would really enjoy reading some of your material sometime because not only do I enjoy writing Horror/Suspense stories I also enjoy reading them, In fact i just finished a book called "The Girl Next Door" by Jack Ketchum and it was absolutly terrifying.

Here's an excerpt from one of my short stories, "Death by Facebook". It's about some chick (Elizabeth) who's being stalked, and eventually killed by someone (James) via facebook. This is from the climax:

Ten minutes later, she got another update: James has parked his car two blocks away, and is walking towards Elizabeth's house. Elizabeth stared at the words in horror. She ran outside, to see if she could see him. But instead, she ran right into the officer guarding her house. She quickly told him what was going on, and he called in two more officers.
Elizabeth went back inside, locking the front door after she came in. She sat on the couch, not daring to go on Facebook. She wished her dog was there. She wished she had never gotten a Facebook account! But it was too late, as her iPhone vibrated with an update: I'm here for you now, Elizabeth. Outside, she heard screams, gunfire, and shouts of "Officer down! filled the air. But after a minute, there was only the distressed calls from the officer's radios.
Elizabeth ran and hid a closet in the back, with no windows, and only one door. She nestled in the back next to a fur coat, as she heard the doorbell ring. She received an update: Please let me in, Elizabeth. Elizabeth shoved her head in the coat to keep from screaming. "Maybe", she thought, "If I make no noise, he'll think I'm not home". The coat was warm, and a little wet. Elizabeth didn't remember the last time she wore a fur coat. She picked up a flashlight, and shined it on the coat, only to see a dead goat, hanging from the closet ceiling. It was hanging by a rope tied around its neck, and its furry body was covered in blood. But the goat was still breathing, and looking straight at Elizabeth.
She screamed so loud, it made her ears ring. James heard it, too. The door came crashing down, and heavy, slow footsteps came towards the closet. Louder and louder they became, until Elizabeth could see his boots in the crack below the door. Then they stopped. Elizabeth's heart stopped, she forgot how to breathe, as her iPhone vibrated with its last update: Say goodbye to Elizabeth, everyone.. Then the door opened.

Bahaha a writing forum, awesome.

I'll be spending a lot of time in this forum, it's something I've always wanted on NG. Now I can break out some of my old stories and perhaps revise them with the criticism I get from my fellow peers.

Writing's been an amazing thing for me. It's been a way to release stress and convey/communicate with people when I lacked the courage to do so. Now that I've become far less shy I've noticed that I write considerably less. Hopefully I can get back into writing and finish a postponed project that I've had on my mind for a while.

I'm very much looking forward to seeing what other NG'ers have come up with above the pen.

Ahoy, the name's Reaperyami and I've been writing probably since 7th grade. It's one of the outlets I use for my creativity.(Writing, Acting, Drawing.) Currently, I'm working on a novella that I'm not intending to publish, but just cause. It's called Myth if anyone is interested. I'm hoping this new forum will blossom my creativity instead of dampening it like other forums. *cough*General*cough* If anyone wishes to see a sample of my writing style you can check out the Naruto RP crew, that place really helped as an outlet for writing.

Cheers!

I suppose if introductions are in order.....

My name is TacticalShoe and I have been writing on and off for several years. I have started numerous writing projects in my life and I have finished about 5 of them in all. Most of my stories are very short and humorous, but I am working on a very serious story at this moment that is titled "Cloud Paintings." I normally write when the mood strikes me and I find it impossible to write at any other time.

I think I'll also let my writing speak for me.

This poem is called "In Silence."

Deep in silence is where
all of my fears reside.

Many times I've sat there
and many times I've cried.

When humor has failed me
and the laughter is all but gone.

In silence is the place
that I will belong.

In silence is where
my own thoughts can become dangerous.

Where my doubts grow larger
and encompass all that I am.

Deep in silence and in darkness
is where I shall remain.

Until the day when I
can find myself again.


I'm gonna go back to my room and be awesome.

Well this is monumental news indeed. I hope to become active in this forum every good now and again. I also hope to post some good stories as well and become an even better writer and I also hope to participate in the monthly writing contests too. This will most certainly come out awesome. Even if we have to wade through the crappy stories to get there.

I am absolutely ecstatic that the Writing Forum has finally come to fruition.

Although my activity level on this website has diminished since the time I first wanted to see a writing forum on this website, I am glad that I'm still logging in semi-regularly enough to see it finally happen. I've been advocating my support for this for a couple years, and I wasn't really sure we'd ever actually get to see it.

Cheers to gum for his persistance in getting the community excited about writing, along with WritersBlock and a few other people who I've probably forgotten about. It's a great thing to see.

I'm not really sure how active I'll be in posting my own original works, but nevertheless it'll be fun reviewing, commenting and critiquing other people's attempts.
