Scribophile


So Camp NaNoWriMo just ended and as usual they have rolled out their winners perks. Unlike usual I actually qualified as a winner this time around (Woo!), and I’ve decided to check out the winners’ perks. One of the winners’ perks is 30% off a premium membership for a website called Scribophile.

Scribophile is a writer community for serious writers who want serious feedback. It’s not for the people who just post to get views, or post for the fun of it (although those are there too they are not the majority). This site has a contribute before benefits setup where you must help out other members with their writing before you can get enough karma points to post a work of your own. It’s really an ingenious system. It means you can’t take advantage of the community.

When you first sign up you are awarded two karma points. It then walks you through how to set up your profile and participate in the community. Once you’ve gone through the orientation you pretty much have free reign on the site. You can introduce yourself in the forums or jump right in and critique a work for someone. So far I’ve only tried out the critiquing and the scratchpad. I am particularly fond of the inline critique format where you can read the work and basically write in the margins, then post it for the author to see. It’s interesting because you get to see everyone’s work and help them and watch the piece evolve into something new. It’s very interesting and I would recommend checking it out.

Happy NaNovember


It’s the first day of NaNoWriMo who’s novelling right now? I would be, except I have homework. I hope your first day of NaNovember has gone better.

NaNoWriMo 2013


Hey,

I’m doing NaNo 2013 and I have a new stayclassy page to donate to! If you want of course. This will be the ONLY post I make about this I swear, I’m not going to be one of those annoying people who constantly asks for money. You don’t owe me anything. It would be awesome for the program if you would donate, but if you don’t well there are probably more important things to donate to or use the money for.

Thanks,

Your blogger person

Stay Classy

Writing Prompts


Okay so, I posted something about this on my writing blog but I figured I should post this here too. I’m super bored and would love writing prompts because the site I used to get mine from has been sort of lax with the prompt up keep. So if you can think of any prompts that would be fun or interesting it’d be cool if you submitted them to my Ask Box. The Ask Box can be found here.

If you wanna see the result of the prompt they’ll be posted here or here. Thanks! I’ll be around, probably posting a book review or two soon.

Writing Blog


Okay so I have been posting links to a few of my stories on figment and other things. Some people have actually been clicking on the links and reading them? I think? But I’ve been double posting them on here and on my tumblog, so if you want to get more of that, I will probably post more writing on my writing tumblog as opposed to on here. So:

My Figment: My Profile

My writing blog: Tessa’s Escape (this is named after a character of mine since it used to be an original character roleplaying blog. But it changed to a writing blog).

Those two places are the main two places where you will find my writing, and if you want to read more please go there because I might not always double post. The tumblog has fanfiction, figment stories, nanowrimo excerpts, and the ability to give me prompts and request stories on it through my ask. The figment will just have contest entries and any other piece of writing I feel like sharing with the public. This way, if you want to read more of anything you can contact me through the comments and my ask and not on here. (But you can also comment on the posts on here if you like).

So there is a contest on Figment.com and I decided to enter it because I really loved the prizes and the prompt. So I put an entry up on the site and I just thought I’d put it on here so people knew what I was doing instead of the countless reviews that I should be doing (for which I apologize, I’ve been distracted by many other things). Anyway here is the link, please go read it, and comment or react to it giving feedback, I’ll edit it after the contest has ended like I normally do. But I can’t edit it now because it would be against the rules.

Count Down to NaNo


There are 5 hours until NaNoWriMo 2012 and I’m stuck doing physics homework. But that’s okay. I know I say this every time I do it, but I love NaNoWriMo. It’s totally awesome and insanely fun! If you don’t believe me you should try it! This is run by a non-profit organization, which runs solely on donations. So each year they ask for people to fundraise so that they can fund all of their other programs and programs for children. This year, for sponsorships they have a website where you can sign up for a funding page and have people donate to the organization.

I have a funding page, where you can sponsor me, and hopefully keep me going until I finish the 50k. Amy’s NaNo Funds The link there is to my funding page. I’ll also put a widget underneath this post so that you can donate there. The donations are tax-deductable, and can be made at my page, the NaNoWriMo site, or at the OLL Store where you can buy merchandise and still donate.
