I will give you a prompt to you inividually and you write a story at least 3,000 words and I will rate it and reveiw it. Before we start I would like to see a list of people who are interested and you strenghts and weaknesses!
Weaknesses: Staying on task long enough to write a story over 1500ish words, sometimes I seem too "detached" to the reader
Strengths: Dialogue, comedy (I tend to make even 'darker' situations light), characters
Sounds like fun!
Weaknesses: I include waaaay too many unnecessary details, I have trouble ending stories, and I often find myself forgetting that I'm not just writing for myself and getting tangled up in a web of ridiculous similes, rambling sentences, and symbolism that won't make sense to anyone else.
Strengths: I love description, especially when it comes to characters and settings, I'm pretty good at worldbuilding, and I really enjoy writing inner dialogue and dream/vision-type scenes.
Awesome! I think we should get started as soon as possible.
OK ,I'll do an easy one for starters: They were behind me! I continued to run ,my heart beating as loud as thunder and as fast as lightning. A flash of lightning cast through the pouring rain and darkness of night revealing one of the demons in front of me its face twisted in a cruel smile . . .
Oops! I forgot to mention the last post I made is for Tiwaz.
Ok now for an-eloloquant-leaf hmmm ok here it goes:
I reloaded my rifle. I could hear the rustle of footsteps behind me. I turned around and dropped my aim. Drevin stood right there his hands in the air.
"Wouldn't shoot your own battle buddy would you?" He asked as he placed his arms back at his sides. I glared at him irratiblly. "You seem jumpy tonight," he continued.
"you wouldn't beleive what I have seen tonight. . .
Weaknesses: Being able to reach word limits (I don't like them), clarity (only sometimes), and if I write horror I like to get graphic.
Strengths: Attention to detail, good description, making characters seem very realistic
All right, I'll get started on this as soon as I can. Have you got a deadline in mind?
To brown eyed demon:getting graphic is a strenghth not a weaknes my books can be gruesome and violant. so bad I have to have a warning symbol say most of my freinds that read them. (Especially the zombie book I am working on) I will try to get you a prompt tommorrow.
Tiwaz , there will be no deadline just get it to me as soon as your finished! Thank you!
Weakness: staying on topic/keeping my interest in the story, knowing where the story is going, keeping to my own thing and staying on track, detatched scenes.
Stregnths: Dialouge, fast pace
To brown eyed demon:
I could here them everywhere!They were clawing at the cabin I was in. Every once in a while they would run by a window ,but I didn't see them. In fact I didn' see anything. Never ever ever for I was a blind woman.Suddenly one of the monsters broke through and into the lonesome cabin . . .
Running ,I have been doing it all day. My heart pounding and legs aching. They were behind me! You probably don't know what«they» are. No body did. I was the only one who could see their true form . . .
That last one was to Raven15.
Weakness: always starting to edit what i previously wrote rather than continuing the story, therefore making it take a long time to finish a piece... :P Strength: Character development and internal moral realizations!
I like the prompt, but I'm gonna change it up a bit. Blindfolded, not blind.
Sure I'll give it a shot.
Weaknesses: Rush stories, not enough detail.
Strengths: Creativity :)I'm trying really hard to improve my writing, so can you give me something to improve my weaknesses?
I am good at writing horror, and i am quite good at descriptions ( in my opinion :p) but i suffer with writers block and thats my biggest weakness because it makes it hard to write to begin with.
