Have you ever wanted to discus writing within the modding world? Trying to find someone to help edit or review your writing? Or perhaps just looking for a place to receive criticism? Then this may be the group for you. As this group is currently in development, some systems and details will be fleshed out in the near future. The forums are now open and set up for use. If you want to post your writing, go to the forums and (depending on length) post the writing itself or a link to it from elsewhere. An example will be posted momentarily. If you want to discuss a particular subject or style, start a thread in the forums.

In order to make change happen, I decreased the team size and gave up on many aspects of the project, including the one about it being a mod. The process...

hello to all writers! I hardly consider myself a writer, I've stuck with the same book ever since I was twelve... And I'm not even halfway, and had to start all over it three times... but is my book. My doing. And when I finish it, it will my creation. And that's what I love about writers.

A comment: to all writers arround here: I have now quite a problem my book is now splitted in half. one is in digital form, whilst the rest of the book (almost 100 pages of rough handwriting) is still on paper. What should I do, continue the creative writing on paper, or devote my time into passing the text in pencil onto the computer and keep on from there?

I do hope we can see much from each other, and share ideas.

With regard,
Mularac

My personal opinion is that writing by hand provides better pacing, and you physically know when you should take a break. If I type my thoughts, often I type more quickly than I think and repeat myself or skip important information. If I write with a pen I can think through every sentence more thoroughly by the time I've finished writing it. Of course if your handwriting isn't so good, then you might want to stick the computer. Another beauty of long hand drafting is that you can edit your work as you type it into the computer, thus omitting needless words and reworking redundancy. My final note on why writing long hand is that it is far more accessible, you may not enjoy writing ideas into a pathetically small journal, but it serves its purpose when you hit an inspiration gold mine and have nowhere to put it before it becomes foggy. That's that, and I'm glad to have you here.

yes! that's exactly what I've been doing so far. Write down first in paper and then transfer it to the computer where I can review my work and work on the mistakes. However, I now find myself with almost 100 pages that need to be passed, so... That's a problem. If you think about it, you're right, writing by pen was what enabled me to write this much, If I've done it all by computer I probably wouldn't have gotten this far. But I think i need to develop a routine, in where I can keep my handwriting and typing even, so that, for instance, i write on pc a page I wrote in paper and then, once I'm done with that small task, I'll just keep going and write half a dozen more without even realizing it.
However... I can't seem to find the actual page i've been passing into the computer. So I have to pages missing. I remember more or less what I've written in those, but it may take me a while to actually find it, so:
What do you suggest: Skip the part and continue to write from the next page or you should i re-write that part for what i can remember, so i don't find myself lost? (oh, and I'm not talking here about any creative prosses, just typing in the computer what I had already written in pen)
I'm sorry if you think i'm bothering you, but, well, this seems like the right place to ask this sort of questions, and I really want to take this seriouly, as I have been writing this since I've been twelve and can't seem to be able to finish it. It's like the damn book has a life of it's own by now.
BTW what was your experience with your first book? just out of curiosity

Certainly this is the right place for this kind of discussion, that's what I made it for! As far as my own work, I'm not attempting a book, but rather am writing short stories presently. Some sci-fi, some horror, but really any genre works as long as my thought(s) get through by the end. I also have a novella "on the back stove".

Since you're missing some of your pages, I'd start with typing the pages that you do have and then when you hit a missing page, just write it. By that time you should have built up momentum to continue from whatever you were typing. In the future though, try to be a little more organized, which is a hypocritical thing for me to say (as I have about a dozen random story introductions and ideas scattered about the house at any given time).

yes, the thing is that I've just hitted that gap. And was evaluating what to do. But I guess I'll just skip the whole chapter and continue with what i do have. And I'll fill it up when i found the damn page.

Alright, let's try and get this going, shall we? I'll probably be uploading a bit of random "flash fiction" into the forums and use one of them as the model for upload procedures. Anyhow, hopefully people will overcome any fear of exposing their work to criticism and make best use of this group.

Updated and done. The forums are another step forward with both posted guidelines and an example short story.
