YCM Official Creative Writing Club


Club Mantra

YCM is a wonderful hellscape, the wild west of the least threatening souls who have ever graced this Earth. It’s natural that a good number of us would be interested in writing, in fact, I know creative writing is a particular interest among us. So I thought to myself, ‘Hey, Raine. You should make a club so the discontinous nonsense of literature can meet the sense of community we fostered'… well, not so much fostered as bred, but same difference. So alas, here is the fruits of my efforts, a club where we can all write and review each other for the hopes that maybe we get better at writing and have a decent community for our writers.
The club will consist of a community to write and read our local works, I’m committed to developing weekly challenges, contests, or submissions on a volunteer basis to motivate club members, just an FYI.

 

I've been asked to remind members that this club is a give-and-take relationship. If you submit works, you are also asked to take an appropriate time to review at least one of someone else's. I don't think that's a lot ask since reading, and giving feedback isn't all that hard. As host, I will pick up the slack but members also need to be willing to be members, this is just for future notice.

 

Here are preferred submission methods:

1. Members please copy and paste and write your stories in Google Docs and submit a share URL link with permission to view-only. This will keep the club forum clean and easy to archive in the first post.

2. If members have difficulty doing so, or are for whatever reason unable to do so, submitting your creative writing in typical YCM fashion of a spoiler will also be acceptable.

Rules

Generic rules:
• All YCM Rules apply and they can be found here: http://forum.yugiohc...e-rules-of-ycm/.
• By being a member of the club, while doing club business you are to be respectable to other members and any unreasonably comments or flaming towards others will not be tolerated.
• The Rules may change, but who can know such things, I’m not psychic!
• Be good!

What you want to be called: whatever is fine
What are your primary interests in writing: Characters are the big part. I tend to gravitate towards fantasy, modern or otherwise, though I like others. And I enjoy finding out deeper/potential meanings to things I really enjoy, such as Undertale.
Why do you like most about creative writing: The ability to create. I'm not even joking. I love the ability to create a universe, create people, create. I love the characters I create, treating them as real people, as to keep their best interests at heart. It's like playing God, in a way, and I enjoy being able to take care of them and guide them.

 

You are an insane person and very creative.

Alright, as of this post, everyone who applied is in the club. Since this is week 0, there is no need for anyone to read and review anyone's work obviously. The assignment for this week is in the Current Events of the first post, but here it is too.

 

Assignment 0: Create a short-story based on a song, music, or BGM (please supply when you turn in) as a theme. People can bring in any writing at any time, but the assignments are ways to keep people motivated and get people writing something. The deadline is soft, but right now it's roughly Sunday, January, 30th. There is no page requirement but please nothing that's absurdly long, rn, it's a short story. Let your creativity run wild on this one. 

 

Future assignments will be more specific, and challenge people to write out of their comfort zone. Thank you for joining, and hopefully this will turn out to be a great club!
