A possible project to help people write?


#1

Last year, I had come up with a book called The Diary of a Writer Wannabe. In it, I’d post rant about my progress in writing a novel and I’d include interviews, advice/tips, reviews, and resources. Basically a big writing help book but more interactive & personal. I dropped the project before beginning it due to lack of motivation to write a novel so that didn’t quite go according to plan now did it :rofl:

Recently, just a few minutes ago I decided to perhaps bring back this idea and actually post it on Wattpad. I am, however, still uncertain about how I’d do it.

What do you guys think?

NEW IDEA: How about turning it to a big thread here on the new clubs?

Would you like to adapt this project instead?

I am more than willing to let you use this project idea and me never posting it. A mention that it was mine idea though would be nice to include :slight_smile:

I feel like it could be a community project to help the community. For example, find newer writers and ask them what their first questions were when they started writing, and get older/more experienced writers to give them advice on getting started.
I’m 100% ready to help you however I can as this seems like something I would have found helpful when I started writing for the first time :hugs:

That’s how I imagined it too but then I was like… eh it seems like too much work :rofl:
Thank you, I appreciate it!


#4

@FetchingPenumbra Count me in too, my friend :slight_smile: I’ll help you in anyway I can =]


#5

Thank you!


#7

Sure :slight_smile:


#8

Thanks a lot =]


#9

Idea: Maybe I could turn this project to a massive thread?


#10

Oh yes and we could have questions users would answer, and then the answers would be combined to one big post that would stand out from the rest for easy access! :open_mouth:


#11

Sounds like a good idea :slight_smile: Please go ahead =]


#12

I’ll need to do tons of planning first. I’ll probably do that right here xD

problem is, you can’t offer things like critique/review services outside of the Help Desk, so that will be removed from the original idea.


#13

Will need: Advanced writers willing to offer advice, as well as newbie writers interest otherwise well the thread is pointless.


#14

What would such thread offer?

  • Answers to writing-related questions
  • Personal experiences in writing
  • Motivation and encouragement
  • Possible interviews from big wattpad authors
  • Links to helpful books and threads about writing

#15

Something similar to the ‘coding megathread’ like a writing help megathread xD


#16



May change the title since the thread will be less personal :thinking:


#17

How about ‘To Inspire and To Conspire’

Diary of a Writer


#18

Ohh maybe it could have like a main title (e.g. Diary of a Writer) and in each thread there will be a second title (e.g. Diary Of A Writer: To Inspire & To Conspire #1) Ohh and this way each thread will explore a different aspect of writing :smiley:


#19

Possible list of threads:
Thread 1#: The Basics of Writing
Thread 2#: More advanced tools // might change
Thread 3#: Outlining, characters
Thread 4#: Fantasy & sci-fi, world building, laws, magic, etc.

Agree with you :slight_smile:


#21

Now I’ll need people to help out to bring it to life :open_mouth:
