So as you probably don't know, I'm the Art/Writing moderator. I was looking at that section the other day, and I noticed how very little posting goes on there. So I decided that I would bring up the possibility of creating some fun projects and contests for members to do, to help them develop their plots, characters, and general writing skills. Some ideas I have thus far: Developing a Setting: You're told to describe a location in a certain genre, and it's your job to make a descriptive paragraph that goes into detail about the setting. Crafting a Fighting Style/Weapon: Make up a cool weapon or fighting style, go into detail on its history and possible significance to a storyline, and describe the feats that you can accomplish with that weapon/style. A Character's Cadre: Give your NPC hanger-ons a third dimension by describing their backstory and plot motivations. Why do they follow your character around? What do they want to accomplish in their life? If you have any other idea for fun writing projects (or just want to tell me that my ideas are lame), please let me know. I'm open for critiques and suggestions.
