ummm.... if no one minds, I'd like to start this up again ^-^
I think the last person to post a story was pencil.

Actually I'd like to keep this thread in the older forum. Makes things easier. Unless you have any objections?

It'd be cool if we got two going.

jaidurn: By 2 do you mean with different people?
angel_dreamer: yeah I thought the same at first.

Yeah. It might help. And then the rounds might go faster if some people stay on the old site and some on the new site.

Thats actually a good idea. Though most of everyone is staying on the old forum. If we get enough people on this one, then we'll make this a second one. So who ever is willing to do this thread on the new site, post and say so (or we could have new people if anyone else wants to join of course).

Is it possible for me to do it on both?

Sure. Do you want to write a short story on both or just crit on both and write in one of them?

Edit: Actually, I just got the idea that we could make a second thread of this on the old one. So unless you have another reason to have it on this new one, it would probably be easier to just have it on the old one. What do you think?

I wouldn't mind posting different Stories in each one.

Either way works for me.

Nope I asked to join on the old forum, and a week later the new site came up.

Oh. So do you not use the older one anymore? I wondered why you never commented on my prologue. I posted some more in it.

Honestly I'm not sure how to get onto it. I'd be happy to continue reading.

I'd prefer to just participate in this thread on the new site though.

Here's the link if you want to look at it.

I might move it to this website. I'm not getting much in the old one.
And with the many people joining the Improve your writing thread, I think I'll make a third one on this website. I'll just need someone to volunteer to run It.
So if anyone is willing then please let me know.

If all it entails it keeping a list and telling people when to write, I'll do it.

Yup. Thats all that there is. And when one person is going, then send a pm to the next person to give them a heads up that its their turn next.

Here's the list so far:
1.Angel
2.jaidurn
3.Fenn

I'll check on the old website for anyone else who wants to do this one. I'll make a different thread then we'll start.

K. Should I start a new thread and delete this one, or just continue from here? If we're going to continue on this thread I'd recommend editing the title to say that it starts on page 2.

Also what are the basic instructions in case someone asks? And how long do I give each person to post?

Start on a new thread.

Once we enough members, I'll assign someone to write a short story of your own creation, and post it. The other members and I will crit and show where or how you could change something. We will go into a complete circle until everyone has posted their own short story. Then after everyone has had their turn, the first person who posted theirs will post their story again. But this time with corrections or added stuff put in it, to see how far they came from their first attempt. If there is more to crit, then they will post it later again, after everyone else, and see how better its getting. Or if you would rather, you can just post a different story. If you have a short story ready, and it hasn't been your turn to post yet, then pm me. I'll make sure to get you next.
This is a great exercise to see what other people think will make your writing better, and even to crit someone else. You might notice something that you yourself need to also work on.

These are the rules so just post it at the begging of the new thread.

I never really had a specific time. I guess it could be 2 days once its their turn. If they don't post in that time then move on to the next person.
