Okay, adding Word Wars, Writing Olympics, and the Steampunk Writing Contest in there. What else?

Okay, I want an emoticon for this face-->(:3=<--Or I'm going on strike with a fancy sign!

On a more serious note: What if you had different folders for ongoing series? Like, have a folder titled the general name of the entire series, and have it facet into the different installations? (Does that even make sense?)
Like... you click on the folder and it takes you to the different parts in the series, but each are separately critiqued?

I don't really know where this came from--I think it's just a general OCD twitch when you need to ask for a link to see the sequel of something. It might could work with poetry, too...?

I feel in a giving mood.

Anyone up for reviving the YWO Book Club? And if not, I'll just chat to myself in that group.

You know, that would actually be a good idea, now that it's summer.

More than 50 PM space.

MINOR > Also the colour font button is broken. Works if you select the colour from the drop down level but if you're critting and you can't be bothered with the, small, hassle then pressing the A comes up with this: [COLOR="rgb(75, 0, 130)"][/COLOR]

What browser are you using, and what's your operating system?

Don't know if this has been suggested yet, hopefully not because I'm too lazy to read through all of the posts, but maybe a thread where people can post if they need a single (or a couple even) proofreaders for their novel or short story?

I know it's impossible to post your whole story with 10+ chapters, and even if you do, you won't be able to have it critiqued as a whole, as far as plot and actual story goes. So, I know I would be, but maybe others are interested in offering help and seeking help from another member who can be a steady beacon of help and critiques and advice throughout the writing of their story?

Just a thought.

I second inyourshoes idea! Eh...there's not alot more to say, just thought I'd let you know I agree with that one. It'd be very helpful.
