Send me whatever needs proofreading and I'll do as much as I can manage in between life sessions... :)

I've also been working on a kind of banner for my piece. Depending on how it turns out I might send it over to you to stick in front of the chapter if that's ok. Don't know how long it'll take to get done though...

Well the anthology is updated on the front page so feel free to take a look at it and give feedback in your own time.

If you have anything then sure thing! Because otherwise it is pretty sparse in the way of art. I know its a Writers' Anthology but still haha

Once it's all proofread, formatted and such we will look at the art side.

We would need a cover and then perhaps am Image for each story right?

Welp mistake number 1 is that my story is titled "Public Enemy No.2" and not No.1!

Is the document one that I am able to edit and save on my end or do I have to PM you Lego with all the stuff I find that needs correcting?

*Facepalm

Let me make it accessible to you. Whoever notices something I'll put your name in the 'can edit' list

@Vacant that would be great if people can find something, but its' not an absolute must. Even a stylized text banner would work.

But ah! I remembered there should be blurbs added after every story. I also didn't change the author names haha

Although, the story about how public enemy #2 is trying his best to become public enemy #1 does come across as rather compelling

Hey guys, to make the blurbs simpler could you answer these questions? Then I'll just write something up.

1. How long have you been writing
2. What genres do you prefer to write
3. When did you join MR and how did you find it
4. Hobbies
5. Favourite anime character

I'll be able to make a nice short paragraph from that . If you have your own spins on the description then feel free to submit them to me, but thisll make it all easier.
 


Also

Make sure to read your own story (rather than read everyone elses). That way if you spot definite mistakes I can let you edit them yourselves.

Cheers

1. Been writing since school days but didn't start to try and write something I would want to sell until 2 years ago (although the first stuff I wrote was intended for a video game plot).
2. Love writing drama and fantasy action.
3. The power of google led me here back in June 2015.
4. Um, writing, drawing, video games, harmonica, pubbing and clubbing... long walks on the tropical beaches of Scotland by day dancing in der clurbs by night , what is this, a dating ad?  :tongue:
5.  Kenzo Tenma from Monster and Hei from Darker Than Black.

1.) I have been writing for a few years. Creative writing was something that I enjoyed in school, but it wasn't until I had spare time in university that I actually started to write anything - and that was after gaining a wealth of experience in consuming different media and writing reviews.

2.) I am most comfortable writing Fantasy, with splashes of action, adventure and comedy, but I'd like to learn to expand a bit. I like to ground stories with a bit of history too.

3.) I joined MR almost 2 years ago... I was looking for a manga-centric writers and artists community to help me get Public Enemy No.2 off the ground. MR had the most appealing aesthetic! :P

4.) Playing and listening to Music - music inspires my writing a lot. Video games. Writing and drawing.

5.) Naru from Barakamon... yeah it's a weird choice but she's stuck with me... that phone call man...


Gonna proof read my submission soon... I know I have to take out some of the panel directions as they don't make for good reading!

Any chance I could submit my second chapter also? Or would that make the anthology too long?

1. I started writing when I was 16. Just sorta' woke up one morning and decided to write a book. That was 8 years ago now, and I can't say I regret the decision at all.

2. Science fiction and science fantasy. I grew up on Star Wars and Star Trek, so it was a natural progression for me.

3. I joined MR about a week after deciding to be a writer. I just wanted someone besides myself to look at my work. To my credit I joined a tiny forum that had just started, so poor forsight there. But it has definitely been a worth while place to invest my time.

4. Writing obviously, but I also really enjoy reading and gaming.

5. Urahara Kisuke. Science and super powers always go together.

Okay, I just need Vacant, Swearzy and Frono's blurbs till I'm done with those.

No1sey, I plugged in your second chapter (had to remove the double spacing) So tell me if you like how it looks.

Anyone else who spots issues in their story tell me as much.

I like how things are looking so far. We're getting there.

I need you to grant me access again XD

But yeah, I'll see how I can make it work without double spacing... When I sent it to you it will have been 16 pages total, how much did it need to be cut down by?

Haha I've set it again.

I'm not sure. I edited in the main file and it's now 95 pages - Not over the limit but fine.

If the text looks too compact we can consider adding more spacing for the final version - As an ebook printing won't be the main problem, but i'd still like to have it at 100 pages at most.

Hmmm have you uploaded the new file Lego? I can only see the old one...

Also am I not allowed to keep in my bold text and italics? You took it out of the previous version and it makes my piece quite hard to read...
