Websites for Writers
This isn't mine.

http://www.websitesforwriters.net/

But I thought that some writers here might like this website! (that is if anyone is still around...)

Mag writers
Good evening,

How are you? I need your talents! Me and a friend have a vision: to start up a fashion magazine for young, intelligent woman. Are you sick of all those celeb mags with skinny Brigette-Bardot-On-Crack LA celebs and giving you tips on how to get back your cheating man etc etc...we want a mag for intelligent, confident, ambitious women.

It is targeted for a multi-cultural audience, and we want fashion news from different cities around the world, like Moscow, Tokyo, Dubai, Jamaica, Zimbabwe, Mumbai, London etc...you look like a Sloaney, but cultured - of course!

It will not just be fashion,but we hope to cover politics, money, sex and relationships, psyche - basically issues that affect the real women of today

If you think you could contribute in any way to this monthly magazine I would greatly appreciate it

It would be great to hear from you

Many thanks in advance,
Peaches

Community closing
There's no real reason to keep this community open, so I wanted to make a post telling you guys that if you want to stay a member, please check out the message board and join. I'll probably be closing the community fairly soon.

-Taps mic- this thing on?

The message board isn't working AGAIN.

...Are there any members of the board that've joined this place too?

Any who aren't members of the board who want an invite when the board is working again? :D If so, give me your email address and I'll send an invite out once the board is working again.

Arg. The stupid message board isn't working and no one at the support forum has replied to my post about it.

So I think I'd like to use this community for when the board does this crap, since it's not being used otherwise. x.x

Inspired Writers (the message board) is holding its first August National Novel Writing Month!

Unlike the official NaNo, you do not have to start a completely new project if you'd rather continue one you're all ready working on.

For more information, go here. If you have any questions, please ask.

If you would like an invitation sent, please leave your e-mail address in a comment (or e-mail us at the e-mail given on the web site). Please make sure to read the rules of our NaNo before signing up, and know that while we are not going to require it, we hope that you will stay a member after the NaNo ends.

This community is pretty much dead...and I realize that you might not all want to join a board off of Lj, but I do have the Inspired Writers message board I created that could use some more active members right now...so if you don't mind joining an off LJ message board, go check it out and register and stuff. Otherwise I'm not sure what else to do to get this place more active. o____o Kinda stumped on that.

This is a writing meme that a friend posted. o.O Dunno where she got it from, but I decided to join in. I'm going to include a blank version of the questions for those who want to post them to their own LJs or whatever.

Co-writing
This is specifically for anyone who's done it with people online, because that's what I'm doing.

1. What are your experiences with it?
2. How well has it/did it work for you?
3. What were your techniques?
4. How did you and your co-author handle characters?
5. How much plotting did you do together before starting to write?
6. How did you handle chapters/scenes? Did you each write a chapter then send it to the other person, or did you each write a scene and send it to the other person?

I think those are the only questions I can think of.

I ask because I found someone at a message board for writers to co-write with, and neither of us have ever tried doing it before. We've started doing a little plotting but not a ton, and I wanted to see what other people's experiences with it are.

Cross posted to several communities.

So...for about a month or so, I've been working on the message board version of this community. I still plan on running this community, of course, but the message board has things that LJ doesn't. Part of the reason I made the message board is because I had the opportunity to have my own domain, so I was making it because of that, and just to generally have it.

So, go ahead and join if you want.

I got the first Writer's Digest issue that I've gotten in quite a few months yesterday (excluding the one I got for Easter), and there's this article called "Shades of Gray" (April issue, page 16) that talks about...basically whether or not you, as a writer, still have first rights to your work if it's been printed in blogs, e-zines, or "tiny defunct jounrals."

What it basically says is that if you need to log in to see people's writing, it's not truly "public."

But then it goes on to say something else that confused the hell out of me.

On the next page in a thing above the columns that continue the article, it says this:

Published Or Not?
Here's a quick list to determine if your piece counts as "previously published."


It was published if . . .
- you gave up your first North American serial rights
- it went through an editorial process
- it appeared in an online journal, even a defunct one
- it appeared in a print publication with a small print run
- it appeared in a literary anthology

It's unpublished if . . .
- it won a prize but was not printed
- it was workshopped in an online writing workshop
- it appeared on your blog or someone else's (though this is changing, so tread carefully)

So...what I'm confused about is this.

If I were to post a piece of writing to this community under friends lock, would it still fall under the "unpublished"/truly public part of this? Or would it, because I have technically posted a piece of writing in my writing LJ, under friends lock, but I haven't updated it in a long time, count as published because it's in a defunct LJ? Would creativefantasy count as an online writing workshop?

Something else that this article has is this:

Jordan E. Rosenfield writes about some of publishing's gray areas. DO you think columns and writing on blogs or personal websites should count as being published? E-mail your response to writersdig@wpubs.com with "Shades of Gray" in the subject line, or post it at writersdigest.com/forum.

I'm planning on e-mailing them, myself. ^_^

1. Name/Nickname/LJ name (whatever you wish to be called): mult1pa55
2. Do you have an LJ dedicated specifically to your writing? If so, what's the username?: It's this one - mult1pa55. I have another journal for normal bloggy type things, but this one ONLY has writing in it, and it's relatively new. I only have this piece and a half-finished fantasy piece I've been working on for a while.
3. Are you looking for any regular readers/beta readers of your writing? I don't think I am at this point. Between working full time and being in school part time and family, etc I have an erratic writing schedule, so I don't think I want to make that kind of committment to someone.
4. What genre(s) do you write? Mostly fantasy. The piece I've put below is the only non-fantasy piece I remember doing.
5. Are you willing to critique/edit other people's writing? Yes, absolutely.
6. Tell us a bit about you: I am 26. I work full-time for an asset management firm doing domestic equities trading (operations side). I am going to school for my masters in library science, because dude, don't be fooled. Corporate sucks. (I know that there's a big element of corporate in libraries, too, don't get me wrong. But I'll be really PASSIONATE about what I do. Shut up.) I love to read. My favorite authors are Robin McKinley, Brandon Sanderson, and Stephen Gould. I'm currently reading Nightwatch by Sergei Lukyanenko.
7. Recommend a writing related link to us (if you know of any). It can be a message board, author web site, an LJ community, whatever www.critiquecircle.com. I lurv it. Oh, also my Brandon Sanderson plug - www.brandonsanderson.com.

I'm looking for some writerly friends for my LJ, so if you are looking for someone who will give honest and constructive feedback, I'm your girl. I may be pushy (probably why I'm good at my job), but I have a zero drama quotient. Friend me, and I'll friend you back.




1. Author name mult1pa55
Title: Coffee Fictions - worst title ever. If you can think of a better one, let me know!
Rating (you MUST provide a rating of G, PG, PG-13, R): PG
Genre: Literary Prose
Summary: A girl waits in a coffee shop.
Specific things you're looking for help with (plot, character, how to finish it, etc): This is the first piece of "literary" non-fantasy work I've ever done. Please critique whatever needs critiquing.
Are you in need of a beta reader for this story?: I think just general critique. This is a very short piece.
