Without good writing, neither video games, nor movies can make it to the forefront. I think that nowadays, people are less likely to be able to "do it all", like Adam Phillips, Krinkels and people like them did in the past. More often than not, people are helping one another in developing games and movies alike. Tom has already stated that the idea of a power of three including a writer at some stage is a good idea.
As an aside, I'm going to be working on revamping the MWC this weekend, as well as the Review Request process. Given that these will be reboots, I'm looking to create completely new threads. If you don't mind, Coop, please sign off on this.
Gladly - what resources do you require?
Everyone else, please PM me any ideas you have for either of these. Maybe organization won't bring the results we want, but we should try. Having a traffic driving activity, and a pseudo lit portal, should help us to inject some more life into this place.
I was thinking something to do with an observational monologue. A guy stuck in traffic, waiting for the cars in front of him to move stops to consider the world, for example. Just a quick one thrown out there, but it also focuses the minds of the writers here on developing descriptive terminology - something which I feel that some of our writers have lacked in other MWCs.
Anyone looking to judge the new MWCs, please PM me. I'm looking for the full range of experience, and a variety in writing styles. So don't be shy. I will, however, rely on those proven a part of this community, and are invested in its growth.
Thanks for this and anyone willing to help, please invest time and effort into the community, to get something back. It's a very rewarding thing to do.
Again, and I know your time is limited so I'll take it easy on you, I'll pass my final ideas by you, Coop, just to ensure things are copacetic.
I was going to say how glad I am to have an Oxford English Dictionary at my desk, but the whole effect was rather ruined by the fact that copacetic (adj; slang - satisfactory) was not in there.
Over the weekend I'll try to be on Facebook, AIM/MSN, and Skype/Oovoo as much as possible. I want this to be a community effort, so please do not hesitate to contact me.
I'm trying to be on AIM more these days, particularly with other goings on, regarding NG.
I'll be posting up my plans later tonight. Maybe we can get a counsel going. I know if I do this alone I'll end up overlooking something(s).
That's the sort of organisation I was after - now we need to build on this.

I would give my help as a judge, but seeing my English isn't as good as most of you guys, I'll pass.
Why would that matter? You can still read and while English is not your first language, you probably speak it better than 10% of the UK populous, at least.
Read some of the other submissions and see if you can critique them. We're not starting straight away, so see if you feel comfortable with it. I'm hardly a master of grammar, but I just look more like one, because i pick holes in everyone else's :P
Seriously though, I feel that your contributions would be welcome here.
