Manga Writer workshop / Let's write a story together!
« on: November 15, 2016, 07:07:51 PM »
Hey everyone! On a lot of other forum sites I was on I would post this same exact topic. It's a great exercise that can teach writers to strengthen their skills in almost any genre

HOW DOES IT WORK?
I want us all to come together to write one big story. The catch? Each user may only write one sentence per post. Before they may post again, at least one other person must write another sentence to continue from where the previous post left off. As more people post on this thread, the story will grow longer until we have an actually developed story.

I will start us off:

That day was quite gloomy and dark; the slight mist of rain mixed with the dark clouds made for a sad-looking day.

It was so cold out. I constantly got chills and goosebumps from how bitterly chilly it was. It's not the weather, either. It's my heart.

Welcome to mangaraiders! I know how an unfinished VN can feel. Still pushing to finish one we started...some time ago.



Trust me, I know exactly how you feel. Nonetheless, thanks for making me feel welcome!

Manifestation of depression; symptom of loss.

Thanks for such a warm welcome!

I used Renpy back when I did VNs. Learning the script for Renpy was quite a process, but I really enjoyed it. It was kind of fun in the sense that I could finally say, "Yeah, I know how to code." VNs are certainly a task, but I think that if you stay dedicated, you can certainly make a great piece. What is your VN about, if I may ask? Also, what engine do you use for it?

We use Ren'Py as well. We have all the script down for a vanilla VN, only took a couple days, but we're still working on GUI and screens. There are a lot of resources out there and we've only scratched the surface. But overall it's pretty easy.

Our VN is about a faceless character who is trying to join an organization of people with superpowers that saved the world from the evil Empire and is helping to rebuild it (so it's kind of an after story to an untold tale). The MC is somewhat obsessed with the people from the organization and idolizes them but they don't know just how wacky they all are. The game follows the standard branching paths formula: you have to make choices to first get into the organization and then it's a classic dating sim from there with all of those characters. The catch is that there's politics so if you screw up and cause internal strife you get booted from the organization and those are your bad ends. It's pretty simple and shouldn't be hard to write. We're currently working up to the point where you join the organization and that will be where we'll first open it up for other people to play and give us some input.

Interesting! That sounds really cool. Good luck with that and keep up the hard work!

Hey Guy From Yonder! Welcome to mangaraiders!

Romance writers' are pretty rare here, so that could be interesting. In terms of finding people to talk with, hang around a little more and you'll be sure to!

Heads up though: You've got to reach 20 posts until you're able to post links. It's a bit annoying, but we have to make sure people who come here are interested in interacting with others: With that I'll say feel free to mingle, ask questions, read stories and share critiques! We're always looking forward to meeting new people.

I think it will be cool to write a romance, but I guess it all depends on whether artists are interested in drawing that too. I do appreciate the welcome btw!

And I totally get that whole 20 posts thing. I agree with it, as annoying as it may be. It definitely stops spammers and ad bots, so I can see where that rule comes from. I'l definitely try to stay active and spice things up around here.

Anyway, have a good day. I look forward to seeing you around the site.

Welcome to MR, GuyFromYonder!

Alright, another writer. I'll be sure to check out some of your work when I get the time. I'm currently working on a VN with a friend of mine and an artist from this site so I know what's it's like to try for that goal. We just started but it's a lot of fun and I'm really enjoying learning the script. What program were you using for your VNs?

In any case, glad to see ya here, hope to see ya around and please enjoy your stay.  :thumbsup:

Nice profile pic btw. I've used it on some other websites myself lol

Welcome to the forum!

Visual novels really are much more fun when working in a team. I struggle to work with others, but I gotta say, having other people to work on different parts of a project really speeds it up. XD

Hope you enjoy yourself here!

Thanks! I hope to make the best of my experience here. And I agree that it definitely pays to have some people to help you on large projects that require different assets. On some of my VNs, I had to do the writing, coding, and music composition. It was quite an effort.

Welcome on mr my friend i see you are a writer i hope you will find what you are looking for... :)

ps: i'm an artist and i made a little contest for writers so you could prove yourself at how great you are as a writer and how you can restrain yourself to only a short manga of less than 30 pages it ends 30 of november and it would be interesting to see what you can do. In fact im looking to see writers style for maybe a future collaboration and if there is one plot that i really like i'll turn it into a short manga so feel free to join there is a prize and a lot of chances to win...

here's a link: http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,17070.msg272776.html#msg272776

I've never actually written Shonen or Seinen before, but it'd be interesting to give it a shot. I might take you up on that contest.

Hey everyone! I'm Noah (GuyFromYonder on here) and I'm a writer. I'm a guy btw. Male, boy, man, you know. I enjoy writing with a passion and have been writing for a few years now. I have several works that I am open to show to everyone, but before I do that I'll explain my background a bit.

I'm a young writer that has worked with novels and visual novels alike. Two years ago I began a few visual novels that were never completed due to lost contact with other writers and artists. This happened to me a few times, and I would always get so much done.

Last year I moved onto writing novels independently, but it was nowhere near as fun as when I would work with other people to write. I often loved tossing new ideas between the new friends I had made when I was making visual novels.

Recently I got back into reading manga again, and I decided that it would be awesome to make one myself. The creativity that I would get to throw back and forth with my partners would be magnificent, I thought. Now here I am, trying to get a grasp on this site and make some new friends as I embark on yet another writing journey.

I like to write about pretty much anything, but I think my strengths lie in Drama, Slice-of-Life, and Romance as they all rely heavily upon character development and I enjoy seeing characters grow. Back all of that up with intriguing, tear-jerking plot and you have my favorite story to write about.

Here are a few samples of some novels that I began to write:

If there's anything else you want to know about me or ask me, comment or PM me. I'll be happy to reply :D

Collaboration (Art Exchange) / [Collaboration] Looking for an Artist
« on: November 11, 2016, 05:43:04 PM »
I think it's best if I clear this up sooner than later: I cannot promise that you will be paid. This is a collaborative project, so pay varies depending on whether this webcomic/manga is popular or not.

Hey, I'm Noah (known as GuyFromYonder on here) and recently I've decided that it'd be an interesting experience to write a manga. I won't lie, I'm new to this site and the concept of creating manga, so bear with me as you read this and comment or PM me with any questions or concerns pertaining to this project.
Here's a bit of background information about myself:
Spoiler
Before I set my heart on writing manga I helped write visual novels then moved onto writing some short stories, so I have a pretty good understanding of writing and literature. I mainly write Slice-of-Life, Romance and Drama and I like to include a wide variety of different characters in each piece. I began writing novels for a while, but I decided that they took far too long to write and that they were only rewarding after it's finished, whereas manga and web comics are rewarding with each new release, no matter how long or short. If you want to see some of my most recent, unfinished works, PM me and I will send them to you on Google Docs or Google Drive.

Basically, I'm looking for a dedicated artist that can work for free until the web comic/manga has really kicked off, so no promises are made on the payment. I'm lenient on the art style and I won't hold many standards on how the art should look; I know how difficult it can be to draw this stuff, so I really don't have room to critique :tongue: If you can, at least send a sample of your art (i.e. a character you've drawn and perhaps a background) so that I can have a general idea of what and who I'm working with

I'd like to collaborate with an artist to write a Slice-of-Life web comic/manga that will hopefully allow the reader to feel the emotion of the characters in the story.

The concept is as follows:
Spoiler
Plot:
The protagonist (name is WIP) suffers mental traumatization after a school shooting in his old school. In efforts to clear his mind of the incident, the protagonist moves and transfers to a new school. However, he is constantly depressed and refrains from making new friends as that would lead to remembering old memories at his old school. Even worse, however, is that the protagonist fears losing new friends. He is scared that he will lose his new friends just as he did before.
At his new school, a variety of different characters are introduced, clearly coming from a background that they spent years together in. Some of these characters happen to be in the protagonist’s class. Noticing that the protagonist is clearly troubled, a normally cheerful girl (name is WIP) aims to cheer him up. It’s no use. The protagonist shrugs her off, fueling a determination to make him happy, creating one of the first  arcs of the manga/web comic.
Small yet symbolic events throughout the manga trigger the protagonists memories to recur, either causing him to return to his social shell, spill out pieces of his past, or make him break down, depending on the importance of the event brought forth to his memory. Piece by piece, the recurring memories will reveal the protagonist’s past to both the readers and the other characters.
I plan to develop each character as evenly as possible, and ideas for the plot can easily be tossed around between me and the artist.
If you want anymore information about future plans or any specific details about the web comic/manga, PM me and I'll provide more information.


If you have any questions or concerns AT ALL, please comment or PM me and I will reply as soon as possible. Thank you for taking your time to read this and consider my offer :D
