-Batzeus

-novels/short stories

-several scifi short stories written/unpublished: one novel in the works/unfinished

-I would say I have strengths in character relationships/development and weakness in my ability to stay within a fixed perspective for too long.

I think a true writers guild NG style is a great idea. Looking forward to some interesting times.

theLeperkan

Novelist.. songwriting... concept

Isolationist novels and scifi

My strength is a desire to get influence from history, the under exposed history and modern history is what i like.
My weakness would be inexperience, lack of an outlet like this to get feedback

Thank widebrimhatter for this update! We've made a WordPress site to keep track of various guild activities. Click here to visit it! As of right now, it's VERY much a WIP. The entire layout will probably change as least once, since I'm experimenting with choosing something elegant and friendly to both mobile and desktop users (which the current one is not). WordPress offers strict layout choices, but there's a myriad to choose from, luckily. The first thing (well...probably the only thing) you'll notice is a "Roll Call" page. Here, we'll help users keep track of what they're working on, and see what other guild members are up to. Please give it a look, and message me what you'd like to have on that page! Thanks guys!

Hey Everyone!

1) Gabe, or Garens, whichever you prefer
2) I mainly do Scripts for movies/series at the moment, but I've dabbled in novels and short stories aswell. Oh, and Tabletop RPG's too, if that counts.
3) Currently I have nothing publised, but am working on a good 6-7 scripts/novels. I have finished only 1 work so far completely, but that is in Hungarian so... sadface :(
4) My greatest strenght is probably the fact that I am reliable under all circumstances to people I care about. My biggest weakness is that I cannot keep writing/working on 1 simple project. I need stuff to be as hectic as possible, which creates a really bad work atmosphere around me. (I am working on solving this problem, of course)

Thank you for the time you took out of your life to read this :)

Did you make this page?

If so then I think you need to replace that first post with the member roster. Also I've been working on something now that you might be interested in putting on there if so.

Myself and a few other individuals are interested in starting a Writer's Guild here at Newgrounds. The Writer's Guild would consist of several different divisions: ranging from the novelists to the game writers all the way to the screenwriters. The main purpose will be to put forth an effort to bring a group of people together that all share a common interest in writing and to trade ideas with them, as well as work on improving existing ones. Here at Newgrounds we have so many places for programming advice, but so few places where writers can go to learn the tips that will help them write their bestseller.

We are asking for something very simple within this forum post:
1) Your Pen Name for Newgrounds (This will be what we call you within our workshops and group conversations)
2) Type of Writing Preferred (Novels, Screenplays, Video Games, all, etc.)
3) Past Experience (List all of your past works whether unpublished or published. *Please note if they have been finished)
4) Your greatest strength and weakness.

Someone from WGN will contact you within 48 hours of your post. Again, our main goal is to launch a platform for writers looking to improve on their work. This is not a place for people who cannot take criticism. While it is people criticizing your work please remember that they will only be providing constructive feedback that you may or may not listen to. Because at the end of the day YOU are the writer of your own work. I look forward to personally working with every interested party. :)

Please quote this line in your reply.

1. heyitskar AKA kar
2. novels, short stories, poetry.
3. I have been posted in a few newspapers with my short stories, both local and county. I also have been published in a poetry book in the 5th grade (lol). I have a couple of hundred finished poems and short stories, as well as a few finished novels. I have a lot of my fanfiction online.
4. My strength is working on imagery, using words in different ways (a thesaurus), and formatting the text itself. I struggle with starting a book (I don't know what to say, like what in the hell am I supposed to say in the beginning of the book???).

1) Morbidity
2) Short stories or novels
3) Currently working on a novel on English, but other than that I have one short story, but it's on my native language.
I did however post background of one of two protagonists in the novel I'm writing here:http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1384535
(It's supposed to look prettier but it was made for other site whose forums support it.
4) My greatest strength would be creativity and ability to visualise things in great detail. My weakness on the other hand would be that i approach art (not just writing) in a "do it when you feel like it" way and I'm trying to improve on it.

Hey, there are no concrete plans or anything like that, but I wanted to drop by and see what the guild thought: how would you guys feel about doing a podcast, perhaps for anthologies? Now that NG supports podcasts, I was wondering what we could do with those, and thought it may be interesting to see if we could find some folks in the voice acting forum who'd be interested in collaborating on such a project. Again, there are no plans, and there are certainly other things we could do, but I wanted to see if there was any interest in such a thing.

Some quick updates for the guild. We have opened our new horror anthology up to new members and are allowing submissions until March 20th, 2015. If you are interested please see the Guild Constitution for more information.

We are accepting new members once again! We have inducted seven new members today, and I personally look forward to getting to know each and every one of you. We did not reach the planned 100 members by the end of the year, but we did make it to 60, a number that I am proud of and looking to build upon in the coming years.

If you have yet to join the WNG, do so! We are a welcoming community and we are always looking for new writers to join our ranks. Our next guild meeting is January 31st, 2015 at 8PM Eastern Time.

Oh, I missed this by a couple of days... getting in the habit of discovering these kind of possibilites and competitions minutes after their best before date expires... :/

Good afternoon (for me, if not you) :) My name is BluMiu and I'm new to NewGrounds, but have met a few writers here already. I've always written to a degree for my artwork (bios and the such), but starting working on actual novel-work 4 years ago. A lot of that time has been dedicated to world building, but I currently have one book in progress with 400+ pages (4 chapters, 3 undergoing entire revision) already done, but far from finished. I don't have any experience publishing, though I am doing by-chapter publishing on Wattpad before I officially do so through Amazon. Knowing my strengths and weaknesses is a tough one since I seldom receive feedback on other sites, possibly because my writing is lengthy and TLTR seems to rule the internet much; if not that, I could not say. Perhaps my strength would be formulating a good story and putting serious though into it. My weakness might be lacking experience to create suspense, or invoking emotions the way I would like to.
This would be a good chance to learn more about that from other writers and also give the best feedback I can to help as well~

1) Myridon is fine on here, I also go by Thaddaeus English
2) short stories, novels, flash fiction, any length of story, once its at the end its at the end, regardless of length. a story is a story, I also like to dabble in screenplays (I have two complete so far.)
3) okay: Girl In Red Overalls (finished and published) The Relic (short story that won a competition and was included in an anthology: The lady In The Loft Anthology.) A novel I am in the middle of writing (77,676 words and counting) a short story collection, (2nd draft stage) A sci-fi novel (2nd draft, revision stage) two screenplays (one mystery, one horror, both completed)
4) Greatest strength I think may be my pacing, once I write I can keep the action moving, my biggest weakness is tense; I often find myself going back and finding I've used past instead of present, still something i find myself doing.

Arrite then,
I worked hard at it after your o.k. deadline overstep and put together a horror story arc.
Posted the (almost) first draft of Issue No#1 including some rough sketches.
http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1388618

Unfortunately I can not edit my posts, I made some bad mistakes putting it up for you :/

1) Silverbullit (How does these workshops and group conversations work?)
2) My first text "Comic Script" ever. (I have written, ghostwritten and consulted on full length feature Screenplays, Teleplays, Shortfilms, Indie art screenplays, Commercials etc related to film&telly. Written a bunch of crappy Bricks, sorry I meant to write Novels, that basically I have shared with very few and so forth. Never Comic Scripts thou...)
3) This would require some serious space... and most is prolly lost in time. But if you want titles here's a few and since they are in Swedish I will give you Swenglish title translations.
Half litre of nut blood. (Short film, award winner)
Moroii/Vampires (Horror Short 41 mins, Director, Co-Writer. Won 1 price in Swedish National Short film festival.)
Förhöret/The Interrogation (Vampire Short 36mins, Writer, Director. Won 1 price in Swedish televisions national Short film festival)
Some screenplays, nothing published
Brothers (1 short prequel, 3 Novels)
The secret detective and the Secret Nazi Experiment
The Gates of Valhalla
Psychos and the giant Clusterfuck
Novels
Intergalactiv television proudly presents the holocaust show
Guide to quick shooting
and I just keep ranting. I will spare you several hundreds of crappy work nobody ever have nor want to hear aboot. ;)
4) Strength would be; Finishing work and contribute constructive criticism AND taking constructive criticism. (At least used to have an eye to spot plotholes, clarify structural integrities and possible improvements asf)
Weakness: Get sucked in total focus at creative endeavours such as writing, painting, sculpting etc. However I honestly am not particularly good at writing, sketching or whatever. (Got more weaknesses, bodily health, cant keep replies short, not enough time on my clock, dough, in other words just the ordinary stuff most deal with. asf)

1) Shifty works, as does my other online name, Riho.
2) Video game writing or screenplay writing would be cool. I specialize in humor-based stuff.
3) Nothing. In a summer camp I once wrote a script for a short movie which we filmed. People liked it. That was a good week.
4) I jump around like a flea, and I kinda need someone to keep me in line. I usually write out whatever pops into my head, or whatever I find interesting.

This seems interesting, ever since I've come back to Newgrounds I've been interesting in writing for an animation or game.


When I'm not spouting bullshit, I'm actually dead serious.

1) Your Pen Name for Newgrounds: IdentiC, (Kerfilicious)
2) Type of Writing Preferred: Anything goes if I have the inspiration for it.
3) Past Experience: Couple of years in writing class, journalistic articles, 1 short play, a ton of short novels, and a lot of unfinished work, including but not limited to thrillers, comedy, scifi and fantasy.
4) Your greatest strength and weakness: Strength: Don't feel limited in what I chose to write, and am open for suggestion and critisism. Weakness: Rarely finish anything, english is not my first language (nuance issues), ridiculously critical of my own work, don't take my own stories seriously.

"Please quote this line in your reply." - Mahatma Ghandi, 2009

Suggestion: Starting a hangout for people to work together in a "room" and just help eachother out in real time, and just keeping eachother company. I have a friend who is part of a artists hangout on google, and he's benefitted a lot from it. I'd love to do something simillar. Wouldn't mind hosting it either if there's an interest!

i guess i'll give this a try:

1) call me meridian
2) novels/short stories/video games
3) i have a few unfinished novels, but i have some short stories that are done.
4) my strength is my creativity; my weakness is my constant rush of ideas. sometimes i'm writing, then a new idea pops up so i do that and lose interest in the story i was just working on. :(
