This is partly because of me wanting to getting several of my projects that I'm attending to right now to the point where I'm satisfied enough with them in context, character development, plot, etc to start looking for a publisher. I have submitted to a few mags in the past, and not as many as I need to of course, but what I have submitted to has been rejected. I still know that I'm going be rejected until I find the right place and time for my work. And with some personal experience as an editor for my university's annual lit mag, I have a better- if not wholly complete- understanding of what a mag's (or any publisher's) editorial team goes through.

It sounds like you're on the right track. It doesn't really matter whether you scout out publishers for material you've already produced or you find publishers you like and go about producing material specifically for them. Definitely having editorial experience would be a huge advantage.

Hmm, what's to say? Live in Northern Ireland and am interested in everything surrounding media. That being music, video games, films and books. When I write I either just do something completely stupid or something dead serious. In other words, my Bible of Food and my soon to come Piano Tuner couldn't contrast any more. We will see how active I am around here. Although it is nice to have somewhere to stick all my crap, even if people don't read it.

Hi everyone Ive been scribbling for a while now but have only started to put my stuff online. Here http://attemptsatfiction.wordpress.com/
If anyone wants to take a look that would be awesome.

Im looking at moving into scripts and was wondering if any has any advice.

Response to Writing Forum Lounge 2013-01-22 17:12:34


Well, shit.

There I was, setting myself up for an evening of writing for an RP game that I'm running on Wednesday evenings and as I finish putting the touches to the interactive part of the dungeon (a paper cut-out, with spinning dials, to better help the players visualise stuff, despite the fact that I'm a god awful artist), my mind goes blank.

Seriously, I've got 10 rooms to work out before we start tomorrow evening and I have no idea how to make this work. I'm going to have to wing it and I feel like shit, because I'm going to let my players down...

Maybe they won't get there and I'll buy myself another week...

Just finished the first draft of the novel I started during Nanowrimo, and now it's on to editing! I was reading the posts up there, about publishing and the like, and had some thoughts/questions.

Does anybody have any experience with self publishing? Like through Amazon's createspace? I'm leaning towards that right now, but I was wondering if anybody else knew much about it. They give pretty good royalties, (at least if you sell it through your own estore) and if you go through Amazon and the kindle you've got a pretty big market....

Thoughts?

Self publishing, that's a pretty loaded topic. I think self publishing is better in concept than it is in action. On one hand, there is accessibility. On the other hand, the market is currently flooded with self published novels. Unless you have a knack for marketing or unless you strike it lucky with viral marketing, it probably won't get you far. I know some people who have said they'd only consider self publishing if they had something that is of a high enough quality that they could find a publisher for it, but for whatever reason they would prefer to control the editing, formatting and publication details themselves. And the marketing.

My mind is constantly changing on the thoughts of self publishing. I know authors who have self published short stories or short books that wouldn't be worth print publication, but are fine for a 99c ebook. I know other authors who do similar sorts of things but flood the market with dozens of short stories. And for them it feels kind of pointless. But it's a dynamic market, so I guess there's no accurate way of reading what's right or wrong at the moment.

It's difficult with submitting to a publication because you've done the hard work and then you've got to wait some time before you receive gratification for your work, where you want it out now so people can consume it now and it can go on to make millions. But I think it's the better way to go. Polish your work up, seek out publishers that are looking for your sort of manuscript and try your luck. Or try scouting out an agent. I don't think literary agents are as popular as they used to be, but that's another viable option.

I would say that if you're willing to hire a freelance editor to polish up your manuscript, hire an artist for your cover, and put in the work to properly format your work and make sure that once it's done it'll be seen in all the right places, then go for it. If not, and if you still want people to be able to read your work, would you be willing to put the novel (or at least part thereof) up online for free? But unless you have a strike of ridiculous good fortune and you get your book published with a major publisher and it sells much better than expected, you probably won't be making much money from your writing for a few years at least. That's just how the industry is.

But definitely, when it comes to self publishing, and even small press/indie publishers, Amazon is your friend.

Thanks for the info. I am definitely going to hire somebody to do a cover but I haven't decided if I'm going to hire an editor yet. I've still got a bunch of changes that I know I want to make so I'll wait until I've at least got it as good as I think I can get it on my own. I am having other people read to see what they think as well.

Maybe I'll see if I can get it picked up by somebody and if not, I'll self-publish.

Well, the anthology was self-published, though the reason it's doing fine right now is that it's the only one of kind and a niche market item. I don't recommend most of the strategies I used, such as kickstarter, though I'm sure I handled it pretty well. I give myself credit for creative problem-solving.

I was talking to my friend about the future of publishing (and I'm currently taking a class on it) and we sort of came to an agreement that any e-book market is the best self-publishing channel to go through. It is total over-saturation, but I do believe that a no-name writer's best chance in the business is to be prolific and a self-promoter. In fact, I'm thinking of taking a bunch of copies of the NGA to a B&N, set up a desk with a "Book-signing" sign attached and just see what transpires. As a self-publisher you need to be as experimental and innovative in your marketing tactics as you are in the writing process itself.

Please feel free to comment on the various threads on the forum.

This is my first post on the Writing Forum Lounge. I'm an aspiring author just bursting at the seams with ideas to write about. I wish there was more time in the day. I returned to Newgrounds a few weeks ago and was inspired to write something as a tribute to the site. After doing some research, I developed the intoxicating idea of Newgrounds being a city in cyberspace, and thus Cybercity Newgrounds: A Cop's Tale was born. Developing this story has become a major focus of my life and I'm loving every second of it. Not an hour goes by that I don't think of ways to take this story. Well that's just a little bit about me as a writer. Is the Writing Forum Lounge basically a forum group exclusive to writers? I'm trying to find a place to fit in now that I've learned the Newgrounds Police Dept. is dead, and that I don't want to join The Elite Guard Barracks anymore.

Hello there.

I'm new to the writing forum, but not writing itself. I just thought I would introduce myself so I can get more comfortable around here. Most of the writings I do are rather ... far from the norm, so to speak. I won't divulge further because I understand that the subject can be rather irritating to most people, however.

When I am not writing for actual projects, I do tend to enjoy reviewing things as well. Most of my pursuits in writing remain simply as a hobby, not sure if I will ever start to make a financial gain from it at all.

Hello! I currently go by MeatRay; More specifically, Meat~Ray where t's allowed.

As a kid, I was always a huge reader. I love a lot of Fantasy and Horror.
...that hasn't really changed of late. What did change though, was my inherent Dyslexia set in.
I still love reading, but as I've gotten older, it can almost become a physically painful burden in novels.
My handwriting was also forever wrecked, but strangely enough, my typing still remains more or less decent.
I guess I'll attribute part of that to my studies in programming and copmuter engineering. In any case, I've also always been writing. I wrote a sixty page story in fourth grade, and I swear I still have it dancing around somewhere in my closet.

I currently only stick to short stories, because with no dishonour to anyone here...
There is no way I'm going to make a decent living as a writer. [INSERT LIBERAL ARTS DIPLOMA JOKE HERE]

So writing is part of my freetime, and of my past time. I've popped over to newgrounds, because yesterday I realized I was really lonely. I need a community and all that funky Jazz.
--and yes. I do say "Funky" and "Jazz" in my writing. Yes, I know that probably doesn't help me. :]

Response to Writing Forum Lounge 2013-03-01 23:33:53


I know I've already placed a few comments on this thread, but I thought I'd finally go about more formally introducing myself.

As a kid, I liked hearing stories and seeing movies; my parents really encouraged me to read. While I must admit I haven't read everything I should have read, classics such as Oliver Twist or some of the more popular contemporary pieces, I like following authors who write good stories. History has also been of a bit of interest to me, coupled with documentary programs which make me curious about the subject matter and want to read about other places/things/people. After writing some fan fics of the TV show M*A*S*H about eight or nine years ago, now long since discarded, I embarked on my own project, which is still in the works. I found writing very appreciable, even when its hard to designate the effort for writing, whether due to lack of enthusiasm, time or for other reasons.

As some of you may be aware, I'm a Dungeon Master - I run Dungeons & Dragons, Werewolf, Exalted, various other games, where you create situations for your characters and they give you their interpretation of what they would like to do and you build a story around them.

I've got my work cut out for me now - five characters, each of which is "dragon blooded", representing one of the five elemental dragons (earth, air, fire, water & wood). The thing is, I allowed one of the characters to screw my game over royally and now I'm working on bringing her back into line. She is the water caste and basically she sold the others down the river, turning them in as traitors.

A bit of faff later and they are all back together and they somehow avoided killing one another. What I'm trying to do is find the compromise that will allow the game to continue, while giving me some inspiration of where to take it.

And so, I've come to a dream sequence - drawn out and underlining the points that made her decisions poor in the face of her comrades. As a terrestrial level exalt, her powers are not as great as the celestial, whom I am using to manipulate her.

Basically, the dream sequence will show portents of what may be to come for her and her comrades, including her untimely death in a gladiatorial arena. The only way for her to avoid this is to accept that her decision was wrong and that everything that she has learned about the "anathema" (celestial exalts, two of which have infiltrated the group and are working alongside them, not having killed them, despite the obvious chances to do so.)

Obviously you lot don't know much of the setting, I believe, but if you could give me any more suggestions, I would be grateful.

It could be shifted over to her, as the evil encounter, but that's all I got.

Right, the issue here is twofold - I don't want to kill a player character. Nor do I wish to have a player "trade in" a character for a better one, because they messed up. I expect them to role play out of this mess, as it's what we have to do when we fuck up - you can't press the reset button on life.

Secondly, this character is that of my ex-girlfriend. I don't want to be seen as victimising her.

We don't know much of the setting and truth be told I'm gonna need to know more about your setting to be able to help you. What has the adventure been so far, in a small synopsis if you please.

Alright, the dragon blooded (terrestrial) exalts are a group of once human beings, imbibed with a magical "essence", which enables them to perform superhuman feats (see films such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; House of Flying Daggers and Kung-Fu Hustle for reference. At some stage during their late childhood, or early adulthood, they exalt, taking their gifts of the elemental dragon (earth, air, fire, water or wood). Their society is ruled from the seat of power on the Blessed Isle (earth pole), where the Scarlet Empress once ruled from. The trouble is, the Scarlet Empress has disappeared, leaving a power vacuum, which her children struggle to fill.

The five players have been dispatched to fight on the eastern frontier of creation, where the world ends in a swirling mass of chaos, known as the wyld. These entropic forces strive to destroy creation and rend all life from its fleeting existence. The forces of the Fourth Legion man the Wyld Hunt, where they strike down creatures of Wyld taint and with them, "Anathema", the remnants of powerful exalted culture before the Dynasty took control. Solars and Lunars mostly comprise these Anathema and indoctrination from an early age has taught the dragons to kill these powerful agents without thought.

On their journey, they (unwittingly) killed their commanding officer, allowing him to burn to death in a house that they had set alight in order to subdue the villagers who had captured him. One of their number was arrested and when he breaks out of jail, with a relatively young man, they are happy to see one another. Unbeknown to them at this point, they are harbouring a shape-shifting Lunar exalt. Quite capable of dispatching two of these dragons before the rest overwhelm him, they remain unaware of his presence.

Aura (Air dragon) threatens Tarvant (Lunar) at one stage and his act is that good, that she believes she could willingly have spilled his life blood unless he gives some answers. Tarvant confides in Aura that he is Anathema, but he is unwilling to kill her there and then. He does not say why.

Tesuli (Water aspect) hears this and reports to the commanding officer of a Fourth Legion patrol. The Wyld Hunt returns and Tesuli reveals her ploy, garnering a promotion in the process. All hell breaks loose and many men are slain by the traitors, in their bid for freedom. They escape and Aura chases Tesuli for a long while, Tarvant loping after her.

Tarvant calms the situation, claiming that a premonition that he has had requires five fingers of the hand, adorned with silver and gold. These portents would indicate that each element, coupled with a Lunar and Solar exalt would be able to save creation.

The group at large now deeply mistrusts Tesuli and Nenret (Wood aspect archer) has a crisis of faith, relinquishing his title "The Unrelenting". Tarvant introduces the group to a few friends of his and their suspicions are confirmed, when Selavar eventually is forced by a hostile situation with bandits, to click her fingers and bring forth an eight foot blade of burnished gold, seemingly from nowhere. Her demonstration of power is quick, merciless and brutal.

Finally, the seven make their way to a massive mountain, where Nenret's compass indicates a powerful source of essence is located. Like the crossing of ley lines, there is an intersection here, where a hearthstone grows. A powerful artifact gemstone, which enhances an essence users abilities somehow. Granite (Earth caste, in case you had not guessed) claims the manse as his own and the series ended in a volcanic cataclysm, caused by a massive fight with a hostile essence user.

Now the team must decide where to go. The Fourth Legion mission is out of the question, as they are traitors, as sanctioned by the Scarlet Dynasty.

That's about the scale of things. Any questions?

No, I don't have any questions. That is a tricky situation that you're in. From the looks of things a character is going to have to die off. You could bring in the possibility of bringing them back to life somehow. As for emotional problems with your ex-girlfriend, if she knows that you're a fair player then there is no victimizing. Remember, when you get down to it, it's just a game.

I think that while the other players realise this, to a greater or lesser extent, my ex just doesn't realise or care. As it is, I will spend my time making a plot that gets her to do what I want, while allowing her a degree of free will.

The plot will get there, I just need to work out some way of integrating her character into it as a way forward.
