IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - VOTE


I was asked how we were going to be submitting your writing. I have two options:

  1. We word dump it into a thread specifically designed for you. For example, I'd create a thread for PR and he would upload his writing there, issue by issue. However, this can affect the formatting of your writing and I know some people get very picky about this (myself included).

  2. We can use Google Drive. All you would need is a Gmail account. For those who don't know, Google Drive is basically an online version of Microsoft's Office. You can write documents, spreadsheets, power point presentations, etc. You can make those documents public or private depending on your wants. In this case, everyone would make their writing public and give us the link so we can see it. This way you have control of your formatting and it's so close to Word that you shouldn't have a problem. You can even convert your Word files into Google Doc files if you want.


What do you guys prefer?

I'd be fine with Google Drive. But whichever, haven't got a preference.

Don't have a google drive, but worst case scenario I can output as a pdf or image files and upload that way.

Individual threads may be worthwhile anyways, just for organization sake. I agree with the format thing though, if that is a strict rule for the competition we should have a medium that makes it as easy as possible.

thumb up

All you need to have Drive is a Gmail account. Once that is made you then have a Drive folder. Plus it's free, and free is free, right?

But yes, we can individual threads with links to each person's story.

So, I am just assuming here, but there is no rule against asking advice about story ideas or characters? obv no obligation to provide help, but as someone without too much experience, would I be able to ask for advice about, say, writing a character of a different ethnicity without making it too steryotypical or cliche?

Are you talking about research or actual writing?

I mean, I'd do research on past stories with my character so I get a handle on their voice and then write my own story. If I needed any particular thing I might ask a fanboy of the character - but any and all writing should be done by you (and partner if you get one).

I just meant the actual writing for a couple of secondary characters. The main chars I am really confident with. For sure, had no interest in having someone else write it for me :P

I'm way too much of a control freak for that

Oh, I hope so, I'll ask my British friends Neil and Alan for some help.


Though, I assume you can get feedback on your writing, right? I mean obviously not have people write for you, but for example ask your mom whether they like the story and what they don't like, right? I feel like it would be pretty unnatural to write without getting feedback, especially cause I'm pretty sure writers for Marvel or DC do get feedback (not even to talk about the aid of an editor).
