Hi, and welcome to original_fandom. I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing right now, but that's what you're for. I'm thinking we can post snippets and finished work, exchange tips and tricks, maybe do some challenges.

What I would really love, though, is for you to tell me what you want and what you think would make the community good. Email me any ideas, or just leave them in the comments. OK? OK.
  • Well... I don't know about anybody else, but mostly I'm looking for motivation from this comm. I love to write, don't get me wrong, but the bottom line is that I'm lazy and usually just don't feel like doing it. So I don't. I really need someone to kick me in the ass when it comes to my fic.

    Challenges would be good. Especially something to do with some sort of description... that's really hard for me, and I'd like to get better at it. I always feel like I'm overdoing it... even if I've only written a couple of lines. I generally don't have problems with characterization or dialogue except that I tend to be a bit overdramatic at times (I'm getting better at that), and I have a hard time aging appropriately with young characters. Like I have a couple of main characters that are supposed to be twelve and they sound like they're 30 years old and seriously jaded half the time. Not a good thing.

    I think I lost my point in there somewhere, but the basic gist is- just about anything would be awesome.
    • Yay! I'm glad you're here. I'm yay-ing a lot right now, but I'm just excited that other people actually thought this comm was a good idea.

      Also, I think writers are inherently lazy but, shhh, don't tell anyone! It's our secret. Besides, it's really hard work, so of course we're lazy about it.
