Writers Club Idea

Posted by Velox , Aug 25 2009 · 134 views

BZPower
:: ::


I've been thinking about this for a while, and now I've decided to share it in my blog.

If you join you agree to:
-Review the stories of other club members [not necessarily all, but each story should get 2-3 replies from club members]
-Try to write frequently.

Then there'd be monthly contests in which club members could take part in, and possibly other stuff.

Basically, it's just a thing to get people to review and write more.

Any suggestions/comments are appreciated. If you'd be interested in joining, post here as well.

I'm really hoping to get some renowned writers in here like ToM, Takuta-Nui [he's in!], Lady K, SPIRIT, bonesiii, and so many others that I haven't mentioned, but I really have no idea. =P

You're quite the ambitious one, aren't you?

You could say that -- I love to review/write, and see people perform good reviews and writings, so I try to do all I can to help.

Oooh. That would be fun. In a way. But, you seem to be in a million clubs already Velox. tongue.gif

*shrugs* I'm fine. The only added load I'll get by running this will be to run the actual contests, which won't be too bad. I'm just trying to encourage other people.

Maybe as a part of the club we could have a "what happens next" type of story. You post the first chapter. Member 2 takes those ideas, writes chapter 2. Et cetera...

Sounds good though, I'm in.

So, kind of like an RPG? I'm up for that, if the mods will allow it. Or, I suppose it might be more of a game, but either way it'd probably have to be approved.

Erm, I don't think of it as an RPG, but I guess you're right. Yeah, we'd have to get it approved.

Oooooh..........

This sounds like fun, but, sorta time-consuming. I'd like to join, methinks.

Didja think I'd be around??

Well, you wouldn't have to enter any contest, and even if you did, it's only a couple reviews a month [and for those that review for the SSCC, things would be worked out so you could do reviews there instead] and one short story a month, but like I said, entering the contests isn't necessary.

And, I wasn't sure [though I thought you probably would], but I definitely hoped you would be. I'm glad you did. happy.gif

We could probably make a newsletter if people thought it would be a good idea. As for snacks, well, sure. Just walk into your own kitchen, bring back some chips or something, and there you go. =P

What if we're in the ECC? And write Epics, as opposed to SSs?

Yeah, that's fine. As long as you make so many reviews a month [I haven't decided how many yet] then you can enter the contest.

So it's based on reviews and not on writings?

Well, you'd have to write fairly frequently. So if you enter the contests, then that would be writing enough. It's basically to get people to write/review more.

Interesting...This could be the perfect way to get me back into the writing game what with possibility of writing contests to per take in. Plus, it is about time I gave something back to the BZPower community, so I think I'll join this club of yours, Mister Velox.

Maybe, but I'm a bit swamped with SSCC and non-BZP-related things. Maybe I'll just review one of everybody's. And maybe I won't.

That is exactly why I have made this club -- to get people more involved, and to give to others. I'm glad you'll join!

Well, like I said, SSCC reviews count, but it's completely up to you [obviously].
