Hallo all, Welcome to YAC Ver. 1.0!
Feel free to introduce yourself and ask questions here.
, the founder, and soon we'll have a nice little council of
Message me if you're interested?
So anyways, I hope you enjoy your stay here, and write to your hearts content!
I feel bad for saying it, but some of the other writing clubs I'm in are slightly
organization lacking. These rules are here to make your experience much easier to look
Rule 1Keep posts organized.
That's the biggest rule I want to stress, because we all know about the no trolling,
excessive cursing, blah blah. Follow the Post Tags!
[IMPORTANT] Usually only used by the founder and council, but if you have something super
dee duper important, be sure to use this.
[GEN] General writing post. (Not a piece of writing, but something writing-related!)
[CRIT] When you're looking for critique.
[CONTEST] For a friendly competition!
[QUESTION] Any post with a question mark behind it.
[OFFTOPIC] For things that are off-topic. Who would've known?
["Your genre here"] For whatever sort of thing you're writing, be it Non-fiction, fiction,
novel, poem, etc. Be specific if you really wanna.
[LOCKED] Used by Council and Founder when either locks a topic for whatever reason.
[DEL?] Used by Council and Founder. Asking if topic should be deleted.
**Feel free to use more than one tag**
PLEASE LEAVE SUGGESTIONS FOR CHANGING/ADDING TAGS!
Rule 2Be polite, mature, and nice. Try not to take crits to harshly, try not to
crit too harshly, be nice, don't curse too much. You'll be kicked out if it's disrupting
the club, I suppose.
And not a rule but a law, BE AT LEAST SEMI-LITERATE, AND BE FULLY LITERATE WHEN
WRITING AND GIVING CRITIQUES! You want to sound professional, don't you? Spelling
mistakes are allowed, just attempt to type properly.
See? That was easy! Not we can
move on to what we aim for.
I think our goal is a little different from most writing clubs. Instead of just a big
writing heap, we want the club to be more of a community. People collaborating, writing
meaningful critiques, being polite, just helping each other out. Instead of the purpose
being just writing, the purpose is to write, get help writing and make writing buddies you
can do NaNo with!
And that's about it! Now that you've read this, go ahead and post! Feel free to suggest,
