Member list, updated. 

 

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.

Sounds fair. Like you said, as long as the stories aren't ridiculously long, I'm willing to go through them and take notes as I read.

Yeah, that sounds pretty fair.

 

Can't have everyone asking for input without giving back, after all.

I don't know how to google doc

 

Words: 1690. Three and a half pages on OpenOffice.

 

It's hard to explain things without explaining things. Also it's hard to write good. Oops.

 

somehow there's only a tumblr post for the song I chose. not on youtube????

Alright, I was playing with ideas to make submission easier. 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. 

 

I will add this to the first post for future reference. 

 

EDIT: Night added. Shame on you all for not telling me about that typo earlier!

I think I'm gonna have to skip out on the first task. School is starting tomorrow and I ain't got time for writing. If possible, I'll try to crank out something by 1st of Feb, but no promises.

I'm so sorry everyone but being the host I feel like I have to be a good example especially early on, but my own story is delayed to Monday. I good friend of mine died a few days ago in an industrial accident so it's been hard dealing with things, obligations, and this. But I want this club to do some good for everyone, I encourage everyone to submit something by Sunday or soon after so I can assign some reviews for the coming week.

 

Thank you all for joining, and I look forward to reading everyone's soon!

I understand that the lack of submissions aside from Mako's may be discouraging to you as a host but worry not, I am around 700 words into mine and am finishing it today. And sorry to hear that.

I'm so sorry Raine. Anything I can do I'll do.

I...just haven't been able to get the right feeling.

either my story sucks ass, or I was just in the right mood to write

 

I mean, a lot of what I write is inspired by the music I'm listening to anyway, so

I am DONE. Entire thing's 1750 words. Because I rushed through this yesterday and today, I wrote this without really thinking about whether it was interesting or readable or not. The last part was something I tacked on in order to add some sort of narrative to the piece but honestly I dunno if it's any good. If nothing else I had a lot of fun worldbuilding this.

Ok. So, I gave your tale a once over, and all-in-all, I think I like it. There are a bunch of cliched ideas that were sometimes distracting, as well as a couple of world elements that I thought were strange, but all in all it was well constructed. I feel like it combined a bunch of other ideas I've seen elsewhere with moderate success, and could be used as the setup for something really good.

 

My biggest complaints sort of come in between the lines of the overall story. Like, how upon Eden's appearance, the world very quickly stopped fighting and decided to work together. While something of this level could eventually occur in such a situation, it's very unlikely it would happen to this sort of total degree. Also, when they reach the top, and find the button, I find it hard to believe that everyone just agrees to "press the button." I mean, sure, there's not much else you can do with that, but I can assure you that there would be waaaaay more staunch defiance against such a decision.

 

When all's said and done, tis a good story. Wasn't boring, kept my interest, neat concept; basically nails all the required categories of a short story.

 

sorry for bad cnc
