YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE PARTICIPATING IN ONC TO HANG OUT IN THIS THREAD!
First off, the obvious question: What in the world is this?
Cool Trash is a rehash of an old support community- the upgrades Iphone XL version. Now with more Cool and more Trash. Batteries not included.
We are writers. We are cool. We write trash. We are proud of our trash! You should be too.
In all seriousness: This is a writing support community. We are simply a collection of writers who enjoy pushing each other, supporting each other, and discussing our deep and possibly unhealthy obsessions with our characters and stories. We also post pet photos and bad memes.
And we hang out in the dumpster behind 7-11
Need to complain about something? We got you.
Wanna celebrate a victory? We got you.
Wanna have deep discussions about the universe and what it means to be human? We got you.
Wanna make terrible puns? We’ve SUPER got you.
Q: What is the Open Novella Contest? Good Question! I don’t really know that much myself, as this will be my first time on Wattpad while it takes place- but we have some veterans in this thread who can help out.
From what I’ve gathered, ONC is a contest held by ambassadors to write a 20K-40K novel in a set length of time, based on one of the prompts they set up.
There are a few rounds of trials you must pass: 2K, 10K, 20K, and with each of those rounds, they will announce the novellas that have been chosen to move on to the next round of judging.
This continues until they’ve selected a few winners at 20K words.
For more (and better) information, check out their profile page: [HERE]
Q: What does that have to do with this thread? Another good question! You’re so smart.
Not much really. We have a lot of regulars in this thread who will be participating in the ONC, so this will primarily be a place where we discuss our progress, talk about issues, rant, complain, celebrate and support each other and track progress.
This is not a place to fish for feedback, reads, reading partners etc. If you would like a thread where you can gather more feedback, find reading buddies, exchange feedback etc. check out @SurferJulz thread on ONC support.
Everyone is welcome in Cool Trash!
We are inclusive AF.
No ONC entry required.
Our motto is: Love is all weeb need.
Never forget that.
