Writer's Marathon Collaborative Novella Workshop (CLOSED)
« on: January 03, 2018, 11:55:38 PM »
Back with a vengeance!

Having taken quite a long stint of a break from actual writing and needing to blow off some steam from the arduous amount of work I get, I've decided in all my wisdom to restart the quite popular Writer's Marathon Workshop and get things busy around here!  :D So to all who've come and visit...

Welcome to the Writer's Marathon Collaborative Novella Workshop!
What idiot comes up with such long names...  :glare:

The title of the workshop says it all. The idea is to write a novella ranging between 10,000 to 40,000 words in 10 weeks (~20-80 pages single-spaced). With a catch... these novellas will be "Co-written." That is, with more than one author. That's right! You and another person will become unwitting allies in the battle to create the grandest novella by the end of this workshop!

The format will generally follow the same rules as "Workshop 1.0" as I'll hereby refer it to. Every team keeps a portfolio that links the story to the workshop, titled appropriately and containing the necessary details, and updates that portfolio accordingly as the weeks go on. Every Friday we will hold a community vote that will be concluded by Monday to show who's the most popular novella thus far, all the way until the final vote on March 16th.

This time around, the rules will be much more lax, in part because this is a collaborative and in part because it happens to be in the middle of the school year for some of us. No mandatory reviews and no strict portfolio layout. One, because it's expected you and your partner will help self-correct one another, and Two, to encourage you to advertise your respective story via your portfolio. Think of the portfolio as your "movie poster." If it stands out, more people would want to check it out  ;) A bland one definitely won't, so be sure to convince us  :D The only things that are required of the portfolio is the Title of the Work, Usernames of the Authors, and a link to your story.
I highly suggest you place your story under the Develop Your Story thread under the Manga Writers section. As per the Mods' Request, we are required to label the story subject with the tag [Marathon Workshop] (I should start using that tag as the default for these projects...  :-\ )

THE WORKSHOP IS CLOSED

There should be a leeway between the end of signups and when the workshop actually begins  :-\ Midnight on Friday is the deadline for signups, however the actual workshop is scheduled to start at 8:00 AM PST on Saturday. I might extend the signups for the extra eight hours, but that's if there's still people around wishing to participate. Otherwise it'll just be us.  ;D

3 Days Remain before signups close!

Do you have what it takes to write a thousand words a week? Put your writing skills to the test and see how it stacks to the competition!  :D

Had to think about this for a few days on whether or not I'll have time to commit, but sure why not I'll bite!

Well, if you're going solo, you can go right ahead and get your portfolio up already  ;D I'm just casually waiting until the signups close before I open any portfolios myself  ;)
