  • From an LSS veteran to you, some life tips LSS tips <3
    KateHardy wrote:Hey everyone! Happy LSS :D We're excited!! Are you?

    We wanted to give out some LSS tips because we have a lot of new participants this year and even to those who might be familiar with RP's, LSS is a bit different than traditional roleplaying. With LSS, writing week to week, everyone is going to be writing at around the same time for the same story. Communication and collaboration are key! Collaboration is writing together, or plotting/outlining together, and communication is one step separated: making sure everyone is on the same page.

    So, what do we recommend?

    -Before writing, it's good to get an idea of what everyone will be writing for the week, or even couple of weeks. If everyone is on the same page before the writing starts, it's much easier to /stay/ on the same page when the writing starts.

    -When writing, it's good to keep open opportunities for other characters to jump in, especially at the end of your scene. If the end of your scene can be the beginning of someone else's next week, that'll help keep the flow.

    -After you're finished writing for the week, it's good to check in with the rest of your crew before posting. If someone is writing at the exact same time as you, you may be writing the same scene without even knowing it! (It happens more than you'd think.)

    -It helps to write in a shared document, like a WFP, so writing in progress can be shared and, even before the writing is posted, everyone is on the same page.

    -Collaboration is encouraged in LSS!! Even though this competition can technically be done without any collaboration, the process goes much easier. Collaboration can be intimidating at first, which is totally understandable! But, when writing towards a common goal, collaboration will eventually be like just chatting with friends!

    -Your goal each week will be 2500, and depending on your crew size 833/625/500 words per crewmate. (3 -> 833, 4 -> 625, 5 -> 500)

    -If you get in the groove with writing one week, it can be easy to write more than that words. That's totally okay! 2500 is a goal, not something you need to stop at. That being said...

    -It's good to pace yourself! If you're feeling inspiration after meeting the 500 wordcount goal, maybe instead of writing, you can outline/plot what you're going to write for next week. That way, you can give yourself a head start on the next week (not writing! any writing for the week goes for that week).

    -If you're struggling with your words, please let your crewmates know! This competition is all about working /together/, so if others need to pitch in to help the whole ship reach the goal, that is completely okay. You technically only need to write 1 word in a week, as long as the crew reaches the goal. The ship survives together!

    -If you're lacking inspiration, please reach out! Sometimes, in roleplays, you'll find inspiration from others. Whether it be bouncing ideas and plot bunnies off each other, delving deep into the worldbuilding, or practicing random scenes with each other's characters, inspiration can come from a lot of places! And sometimes, we all need inspiration!!

    It all boils down to communication there. Make sure everyone in the crew knows how everyone is feeling at all times. Weathering the storm is much easier when you all know where you stand that week.

    -And finally, the hardest tip we could give: it is okay to let an idea die. This is a roleplay and a competition, so the urge to want to continue is strong! It's a shared idea, a shared story, a shared world, and a shared goal. But, your health is more important. If continuing the ship may cause burnout, then it's no longer worth it. There will be an end; we just may not know when that'll happen.

    Good luck! We're so excited to watch six wonderful ships (seven with our lovely pirate ship) set sail today! Happy sailing everyone <33

    Okay, but seriously. It's good to see you active over here. I hope you are doing better. <3 (and I also hope I'm not teasing you too hard.)
