  • I drew a scene from my novel aldfasdjkfhasjfh
    This depicts two important characters, Zorya [also known by the following aliases; Eos, Kālai Naṭcattiram, Mālai Naṭcattiram, Gemini, or Nalliravu], and protagonist, Asternia Iraivan giving a random background character [haven't chosen a name for him yet] a device called the Vippu for safe-keeping.

    Announcing 2023’s first Gen Lit Clinic!

    What is Gen Lit Clinic? Gen Lit Clinic is a pad discussion where everyone brings a question or two related to the topic of the month. This month, that is story arcs.

    The term ‘story arc’ can be used in a variety of ways, but for simplicity we’re going to take it in a very broad form. A story arc is basically the progression of your narrative across your short story, book or perhaps script. If you have a question about what kind of story arc you’re shaping, how to make it engaging, or what to do about conflict, ask it below!

    An example question: how do you write an engaging redemption arc?

    Gen Lit Clinic will happen on this date/time:

    The pad link will be posted in the People’s Tab, so stay tuned for that!

    Break the Chat!

    The Young Writers Society has a new chatroom, and on *, we're going to try to break it!

    You, me, and any other YWSer who is totally not a robot.

    Every so often, YWS holds a Break the Chat event where we essentially try to cram as many people as possible into the chat until it breaks. A couple times, the server has actually crashed. The only way to try making the server crash this time is to make sure you're there!


    The YWS chatroom, which is accessible via the Chat tab on any page when logged in.

    So, there's two reasons really. The professional reason is that from time to time, Nate likes to stress test the server to find stuff that needs to be fixed. But, the real reason is to inaugurate the new chat room.

    So spread the word, and don't forget you can access the chat even on a mobile phone! Even if you're only able to join for a second, that'll be awesome.

    See you there!

    * All times adjusted to your local time

  • I love it when poetry inspiration decides to perch itself right outside your window

  • What's a character trait you've rarely seen in a character and a character trait you wish more characters had?

    Quillfeather This isn't really a character trait but I love it when characters have normal issues. Like I dunno they struggle with anxiety or depression or ADHD or dislexia or something like even with a fiction fantasy whatever, I feel like so many characters are too perfect in these regards. I really want to see that more in stories

    GengarIsBestBoy I’ve said this before, but I want female protagonists who are feminine but are still complex characters. I wish that “girly” characters weren’t just shallow side characters/antagonists
