So, this more properly belongs in another forum--Entertainment, or Personal. And if there's enough interest, that's where it will go. But, given the state of some of the forum channels, I hope I can be forgiven for posting this here anyway.

Is anyone interested in participating in a DDO Writer's Club? The specifics would need to be figured out (one post, multiple posts, how much through PM, Writers vs. Readers etc. etc.), but I'm trying to see if there's more than just me interested in the idea of sending manuscripts back and forth and critiquing each other.

Doesn't have to necessarily be fiction per se, either. So yeah, if you're interested, say so here or through PM.

Sure.

"The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? "

I don't have time to write right now, but I might be able to read and critique...

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I formed and led a writing club at my college, so I'd love to help manage this. As DDO's residential writer, I give this my oh-so-humble seal of approval.

I still have to write my dark sci-fi story, Pandemonium. (It's filled with positive themes, but the overall story is dark, because of what the characters have to endure.)

When it comes to literary works, I mainly write in Chinese. However, I'll be glad to be a reader if there are essayists and poets in the club. :)

I'm managing this now, so I'll be sending out a message to all of you. Which means some of you need to accept my friend request.

Would it be too late to take part in this?
