I wish to improve my skills as a writer. The problem is that I don't have the distance and objectivity I need to see what my flaws are and how to correct them. I'd love to receive concrit and guidance. Thank you.

This piece is a bit long to post to the community, but you can see the current chapters here: Searching the Heaven. I'd love to have some betas, both for basic error-catching and to give me their general reactions. Fandom knowledge is not necessary.

This piece is a bit long to post to the community, but I'd love to have some betas, both for basic error-catching and to give me their general reactions. There's some bits which are kind of squicky--I'm not totally comfortable with them, despite having, y'know, written them, and I'd like to know how readers take them. I'd ultimately like to try to get this published.

I'm not looking to make major changes (POV, structure, plot), but I'm definitely open to sentence re-writes, paragraph restructuring, cleaning up clarity of language, grammar changes, and the like. I'd like to tweak this story and make it better. :)

(Whoops, I meant to post this earlier, but maybe someone is looking for a weekend writing exercise!)

from National Public Radio, Three Minute Fiction Round 5. Stories are due 11:59 PM Eastern time, this Sunday September 26th.

Our contest has a simple premise: Listeners send in original short stories that can be read in three minutes or less. We're looking for original work no longer than 600 words.

Each round, our judges throw out a challenge. This time, your story must begin with the line, "Some people swore that the house was haunted." It must end with, "Nothing was ever the same again after that."

About Our Judge, Michael Cunningham

Michael Cunningham is the author of the novels A Home at the End of the World, Flesh and Blood, The Hours (winner of a PEN/Faulkner Award and the Pulitzer Prize) and Specimen Days. He lives in New York. Farrar, Straus and Giroux will publish his latest novel, By Nightfall, on Oct. 5.

The contest is open to legal residents of the fifty US states and the District of Columbia, but there's nothing stopping you from playing along at home if you wish! Complete rules, submission details, and more information available at the link above.
If you've heard of something interesting and writerly going on in the real world, or you have something going on, yourself, feel free to share.

And another - sorry for two posts in such quick succession! Again, any concrit would be most gratefully received.

Ben is angry. Every night,
As soon as he turns out the light,
Some slurping, burping, bumping Creep
Is stopping him from going to sleep.

Mary’s always running wild,
A sticky-fingered, grubby child.
Her teeth are green and growing mould,
She just won’t brush them when she’s told.


Surely this can't end well? )Any concrit much appreciated.

I had a thought!

Would anyone be interested in some sort of anonymized option for posting stories? I'll admit, this thought was inspired by fannish kink memes, but maybe some of you out there would like to test-run a new genre, or write something in a potentially-irritating style or what have you, in a space that's separated from your current following.

(Of course, you're also perfectly welcome to just make a new account and post the entry under that username, as people have done on the internet since the beginning of the internet.)

I'm interested in suggestions of options for allowing people to keep control over their words. I'd be happy to repost a story here for someone without their name attached (maybe with an agreement to leave it up for a month?) but there's also the option of hosting the story off-site somewhere under the author's control and discussing here. I think that published versions of google docs don't have account names attached to them? I'm sure there are other such options that I'm not aware of.

Or, if there's anything else I (or someone else!) can do to pique interest in posting or discussion: sound off!

I'm just starting out writing original fiction again after years of fanfic only. I'm having a hard time of it and want to know if my intro grabs peoples' attention and makes them want to keep reading. I'm concerned there's not enough description at the very start, but I'm afraid if I put the description in the first scene it'll lose the reader's attention. Anyways.

Title: Intro (heh, original)
fandom or original fic genre: Original: sci-fi, I guess.
Characters/Pairings: erm, original characters?
Rating: PG
Word Count: 350ish

But I don't want to share my body, Mom. )

Rating: SFW
Word Count: around 1500 
Author's Notes: A quick explanation, as this is more of a sequel. In a post apocalyptic world, one group - the Daughters of Saints - took over control through political and military means. Celosia Izatar was the leader of the Daughters of Saints, until she disappeared.

I'm sure many of you are super-busy with all manner of writing things, but I looked up from the rock I've been living under and realized it's been... a while.

So. Whatcha doin'? Anything we can do to help? Want to cheer about how well your writing is going? (or complain about how it isn't?)

I've been meaning to post something here forever, and I kept thinking "next time..." and then not.

With seasonal fic exchanges coming up, though, I sort of wanted to revisit a short-ish piece that I wrote for a prompt. I am not good at dropping into a scene and writing 1000-ish words of dialogue and action and emotion without a ton of exposition, so I usually end up with a glorified not!fic outline, or 10,000 words.

So, help me out, here! General concrit or reaction is great, and I'd also appreciate some suggestions of scenes I could have written to show the stuff that I ended up telling so I can get my brain pointed in the right direction.

Title: Seconds
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing/Characters: Lorne/Zelenka, pre-slash
Rating: PG
Notes: ~1000 words. written for a Porn Battle prompt, but then it didn't even approach porn
