Ambage Writing Achievements
Writing Achievements for the Ambage
Sometimes the most elusive thing for a writer to find is motivation. You might have all the ideas ready, but without a goal, you can get stuck. Enter the Ambage Achievements, created by Cederak. Think of them as a list of mini writing-goals for Ambage members, a chance to show yourself how much you have accomplished and to chronicle your writing endeavors for all to see. These individual achievements are meant to provide you, the writer, with something to work toward while being involved in the Ambage community
How they Work:
- Create a post in the Ambage main topic or in a blog entry, and log all of your achievements there. As you achieve new achievements, feel free to post in the Ambage topic announcing such (and edit your original post/blog entry).
- Every achievement can only be unlocked once.
- They have been divided into categories for you.
- Critic Club reviews DO count.
- "Substantial" is ~1000+ words for stories, and ~300+ words for reviews.
- Instead of points, the number of achievements one achieves is now logged.
- Feel free to ask any questions here.
