Too late to join?

1. Neoslayre
2. Screenplays, and rap lyrics
3. Screenplay for a "road trip" movie, screenplay for untitled POV horror movie, untitled rap song. (ALL UNFINISHED)
4. Strengths:

Pretty good at creating interesting dialogue, and conversations between characters.
Can come up with many different interesting ideas for films.

Weaknesses: none. I'm perfect (JK)

My inability to complete anything.
I always procrastinate.
It seems like I try too hard to make dialogue sound natural that it seems to me to have the opposite effect
Writing rap is harder than I expected.

1) BrolfThePaladin
2) From normal literatur over philosophical works to comics, actually everything
3) Some comics I don't know anymore because it was too long ago, several poems (German), several philosophical textes (German, English, Bi-,Tri-,Quadlangual), some undone games (those god damn lazy gameDevs! \[<_>]/ ) and except other tiny things the normal stuff like Reviews and such things.
4) My greatest strength, which is my greatest weakness at the same time is that I'm a perfectionist.

1) Nithael I guess, or Ancient as that is my general screen name nowadays.
2) To be honest, I don't have a preferred mode of writing, I've only written a manuscript so far (which is still being written) with no real purpose other than to serve as the universe my movies will take place in way down the line.
3) As stated above, a manuscript that is pretty large already, despite not being finished.
4) The fact that I just don't fucking stop writing is probably both of them.


Change is inevitable, all you can do is make sure it happens in your favor.

If you have yet to receive an admission message please PM me.

Only @Nithael and people that post after this post will be considered for new membership. Previous members that are in the guild roster found here will also still be recognized.

Thanks!

1) Just call me hks. No need to capitalize anything.
2) Short stories and some serials. Done it before, almost been published, some recognized.
3) Wrote poems, short stories and some ramblings in the dark. I can type real good.
4) My greatest strength is taking an observation in my life and calling it fiction because it's absurd to call a story a nonfiction. My secondary strength is I can 'rite rael gud'. My weakness is I take a long time to write these things.


1) Mansell
2) I enjoy most styles of writing, content quality depending. Mostly short stories, novels and spoken word poetry.
3) Personal writings, short stories ( two of which are complete ), poetry ( various with a couple of dozen completed pieces ), musings and studies. Nothing has even approached the chance of being published.
4) Strengths would possibly be plot development and attention to detail, weaknesses would potentially be character introduction and wrapping the story up.

1) Your Pen Name for Newgrounds (This will be what we call you within our workshops and group conversations)

FoAngel

2) Type of Writing Preferred (Novels, Screenplays, Video Games, all, etc.)

Novels, Short stories

3) Past Experience (List all of your past works whether unpublished or published. *Please note if they have been finished)

Been writing ever since i was 13-14, mainly short stories some have been finished but never read by anyone. There are some unfinished stories floating around my apartment somewhere

4) Your greatest strength and weakness.

My greatest strength is my imagination. Whenever i hear a song my mind develops a story to go with it. Or whenever i see a movie my mind starts to think of ideas of how to story will continue

Response to Writer's Guild of Newgrounds (New!) 2016-07-22 03:01:06


1) Brandon Service.
2) Prose, in the format of short story or novel.
3) A number of works with reasonable acclaim under the account of 'David Noklevername' on fanfiction.net, no longer attributable to my current writing style nor abilities. Several unpublished short stories written for commission.
4) My greatest strength is firm characterization, dynamic plots, skill in deconstructing or otherwise putting a twist on established conventions, and skill in working with fellow writers, both in aiding them accomplish their goals, and taking their advice in hand. My flaws include lack of motivation in going through with a copious amount of ideas, inability to stick with one project to develop it fully, bringing about a cohesive middle that can embody and elaborate on my concepts, and general difficulty with pacing.

Response to Writer's Guild of Newgrounds (New!) 2016-09-07 22:34:25


1) Gabe (Or Gabe Malk, but I do change my usernames very often).
2) Novels, video games, short stories, poetry, etc, I like all (well, most) forms of writing.
3) A few songs, short stories and poetry, all published, but none in english (I'm br hue hue hue).
4) My greatest strength and weakness can not be defined, for I as a whole am dialectical, my weakness is my strength... Just kidding, I'm creative, but not organized.

1) Dreadales.
2) Novels, Poems, Prompts.
3) I've more works than I can remember, myself. Many poems, a few prompts, only one or two works of original fiction.
4) Strength? My personal demeanor, how I view the world and interact with it. I'm a positive enough individual that I avoid and attempt to dissuade confrontation, and I value that in myself more than anything else. Weakness? My personal self doubt. Everyone is their own worst critic, and I am no exception to the phrase. I try to frame this constant self criticism into a more positive light by using it to drive my work efforts towards a higher quality and standard. This flaw makes it difficult for me to ever feel comfortable with my written works.

2) Type of Writing Preferred: Poetry, Smut
3) Past Experience: I have a document of poetry that's over a 100 pages long saved to my computer that I've never shared, I've been published once, and I enjoy journalism in the form of poetry.
4) Your greatest strength and weakness: I don't have any extended education in writing beyond introduction college courses, however I've grown better with experience and time, and I enjoy going back and working on older works that I've created.

1) Your Pen Name for Newgrounds (This will be what we call you within our workshops and group conversations)
Calamaistr

2) Type of Writing Preferred (Novels, Screenplays, Video Games, all, etc.)
Scifi with a wiff of fantasy in a grim dramatic setting, hypothetical videogame storyboards, puzzly poems.

3) Past Experience (List all of your past works whether unpublished or published. *Please note if they have been finished)
The timecrafter series (5 book finished)(scifi), The machine opera (6 part, had writers block on the 6th)(scifi), Egeo series (2 part, 1st book finished (standalone)(grim fantasy), Strangled (finished) (psychological drama), Nightmare of lighter darker (finished) (psychological drama). The many faces of - poemcollection (narration on the TMFO music albums) (none of these are published, i have more works but those are shorts and not noteworthy.. though i mightve forgotten a few that would be noteworthy..ohwell)

4) Your greatest strength and weakness.
Strenghts: original plots with no need for twists, i always feel as if the plot creates itself as i diverge from any generic road and let it form from between the lines.., Characters are alive and iconic. In poems and songwriting i let everything rhyme inbetween lines rather than at the end of lines which sets itself appart.. i consider writing more as solving puzzles than just putting to paper my thoughts.. i battle my thoughts and become a reader as i write things down that simply roll down a waterfall of questions untill its all revealed even to me myself..and i tend to be baffled personally by the outcomes so i would think thats qualitative and with it a strenght. In short; i baffle myself with my plots.

Weakness: Very easily thrown into writersblock because i cannot force myself to write as much as i cant force myself to compose music.. it just happens .. this makes me undependable and very hard to 'work with' if any deadline exists.

-cal.


Original, classical and retro videogame music composer. (No longer take project clients from newgrounds but if you need a track or two from what ive got pm me.)

Did anyone ever have a moment where they see what is selling, look at their own stuff and wonder why people just like some bad things? Has it ever made you want to stop or does it push you to keep going

I ask because my friend not on here wanted help with a project and I had to research every reality show xfinity had on demand to see what was popular, what they would take, it almost ended with me trying to put my head through a brick because some of them were so bad it made me lose faith in humanity. Considering that happens in writing (twilight) as well it makes me wonder if anyone has had that moment and how they worked with it.?

I'm know I'm late to the party, but sign me up!

1) 'Storyworker' is fine, thanks.
2) Poetry... though I'm not interested in 'writing' as much as in 'creative development'.
3) There are too many to list (poems are short), all but one are unpublished, and none are ever 'really' finished.
4) Dynamism and action.

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. :)

derp...

3) collaboration with personal friends on story, scripting and random poems. I am a hobbyiest drawer with a mind to animate stories and ideas. No published works and only half finished pieces at best.

Response to Writer's Guild of Newgrounds (New!) 2017-04-24 01:14:57


yea, I can add some input.


1) Your Pen Name for Newgrounds (This will be what we call you within our workshops and group conversations)

Sargos

2) Type of Writing Preferred (Novels, Screenplays, Video Games, all, etc.)

Novels, Short Stories

3) Past Experience (List all of your past works whether unpublished or published. *Please note if they have been finished)

1 unnamed fantasy novel, 2 unnamed military science fiction novels (These are "finished" as in they hit their word goals, I realized I hated them, and then abandoned the first drafts). I'm currently working off and on with a short story collection/episodic horror novel and a horror novel.

I also have about four years worth of unfinished and finished short stories lying around.

4) Your greatest strength and weakness.

I tend to leave things half done as soon as the issues start to cave in. The novel I'm working on now I've started going on six or seven times to... various effect and I have a lot of half finished stories sitting around in various notepads, flashdrives, and folders.

Also is this even an active thing anymore? Because it doesn't really seem like it.


I rode a sheep once. There was a sad clown and a bunch of laughing rednecks and the sheep peed on my leg. My mom washed it off with a hose then candy made my tongue bleed.

1) Pen name: Solace

2) Writing preferred: Comedy script, novel, and poetry

3) Past Experience: I have two novels in the words. One of them is long enough to be considered a short story
but it might reach 30 to 40 pages so I'm not sure if that qualifies as short. The other is going to be full length
I also have a knack for poetry

4) strengths and weaknesses: I don't have as much disciplined as I'd like to have in writing as I heard that some
people are able to write at least a page a day.
I think its best to quote trey parker "we don't have time for writer's block" that seems like a good to get things done.
