Fifth Community Vote Begins!


Pardon the seeming lack of engagement on my behalf... I should note that although I do try to keep to a rigid schedule, there always is that one thing that nags at us to attend to more important matters. That thing being Real Life. :unsure: Whatever the case may be, I've devoted myself to keeping this workshop up for 10 weeks, and that is exactly what I plan!  ;)

The next Writing Activity for this week is: Stream of Consciousness. You could write from anything. A certain character, an outside observer... so long as it has some particular focus in a story, whatever that story may be. ;)

Week 7 Update


The Writing Marathon is almost over. In three weeks, the last updates will be completed and our final projects shall be presented to the community in its fullest on the Tenth Week! Though few of us remain to finish the task at hand, we will undoubtedly finish the work we have started and bring this workshop to fruition! In that endeavor, we shall not falter.  8)

The next Writing Activity for this week is: Rewriting. Take an existing work, either your own or someone else's, and try to rewrite it with your own take. This will test not just your understanding of the material, but also your creativity given the limitations of that work.

Week 9 Update


The Writer's Marathon is nearing its closure... in two weeks the final Community Vote will be held, and at that time all stories must be completed to be eligible for participation. Hopefully everyone's been keeping on track for that  ;)

The last Writing Activity is: Reflection. Write an Epilogue for a given story that reflects upon the journey and struggles the characters and the world had undergone in that time. Think of this as a final testament to all the work you have done thus far.  8)

Week 10 Update


We have officially reached Week 10, the last week of the Writer's Marathon Workshop, and with it, the final stretch of our wondrous stories! By the end of Friday this week, each group will submit their final work. The Grand Community Vote will be held, and one week after, the winner for Best MangaRaiders Story will be crowned! It's been a harrowing journey, but one to have gladly traveled with each and every one of you!

Good Luck Fellow Writers! I'll see you at the finish line! 8)

Well it more or less died on its own  :unsure: People left during the first few weeks and the momentum just slowed after it became apparent no one wanted to write their stories... so hence another workshop is sent to the grave. May you rest in peace.  :ninja:

This'll probably be my last one, at least for now. I've tried hosting other workshops but with recurring problems of lack of engagement and participation, it simply isn't worth spending my time for. Perhaps when I see more requests for such a workshop, I'll consider it again, but for now, I'll end it here.  :sleep:
