It will need separate topics and I think, to start, we should keep it simple. The things that I have noticed the most (other then grammar) trouble with in the stories that people have written and posted in other sections concern characters. I think if we started with five topics-things like character creation, character growth, dialogue, descriptive prose, and maybe something about general plot construction- we would be in a good position to see how the reception is and it would also give us a good footing to expand into other topics if we need to.

well the little description under the Manga Writers Workshop link on the main page is, and i quote "Let try to get our writing skills sharpen" so after reading this anyone would assume this is the place they could find help at.

this is true.. but discussions shouldn't be in the workshop thread and that's why i couldn't find the "ask the writers" thread in the first place.. i was looking in the discussion board. ::)

But like Lassiter if there should be Sticky Topics for different aspect of writing then those should be in General board (in writers section). Since those going to be Discussions. We need to find different things for writer workshops.

just as Hasith already said..
Judge a person NOT by their weakness.. but, by their strength.

Ok So lets make a list of important things which we can make discussions. We can come up with simple title for each of these things and put a sticky topic.

well we could just base the writers workshops off of the artist workshops. give a few parameters about what to write about and they would write a short little something. we could do things with established mangas and we could have them for those who wish to do original stories. the workshops would of course take longer to complete but its not like it would be a competition or anything
