May is just around the corner. Literally.
That means the end of NaPoWriMo, which unfortunately, I did not get to try and pester you all into doing but anyway.
This group needs to get back on track badly so I'm going to turn to threats.
This is not an open gallery, it is supposed to be a community and therefore I'm going to change the regulations and make it so that every submission needs to be given the O.K by me before it is accepted to any of the groups.
I know I've been slacking off recently, but Uni is finished in four weeks and I'll have all summer to devote to you lot and my writing. (Except for when I am writing that 4,000 word make-up essay for history but that is beside the point.)
Those who wish to continue submitting to this group need to do one thing: contribute.
For every submission you make to this group, I want you to find another deviation in the gallery, written by someone else, and leave a fair sized comment or critique.
Not just 'I like this' or 'very nice'. A fully structured series of sentences with reasoning.
Simply add the link to your critique in the artists' comment of your deviation and attach a little sentence to say why the link is there.
I look forward to moderating your submissions more closely and yes, yes I am that evil. Blame it on the lack of sleep I'm getting at the moment.
Anyone attempting 'A story a day' for May?
Take a scene that you have written a year ago. Now take one of your own original characters from more recently and put him/her in your own place within the memory, how would they have handled the situation differently?
Also try to think about how your writing may have improved since your wrote this scene.
