Hi. :D I thought I'd try to help out those who want to write, but still have some things to work on by making this group. I would like to have at least five people to join. Once we enough members, I'll assign someone to write a short story of your own creation, and post it. The other members and I will crit and show where or how you could change something. We will go into a complete circle until everyone has posted their own short story. Then after everyone has had their turn, the first person who posted theirs will post their story again. But this time with corrections or added stuff put in it, to see how far they came from their first attempt. If there is more to crit, then they will post it later again, after everyone else, and see how better its getting. If you have a short story ready, and it hasn't been your turn to post yet, then pm me. I'll make sure to get you next.
This is a great exercise to see what other people think will make your writing better, and even to crit someone else. You might notice something that you yourself need to also work on. So is anyone interested? :)

I might try, though admittedly after my second (sometimes third) draft, my writing gets much, much worse. My friend told me that, and I totally agree. @______@"

Well have you ever had anyone give advise on your writing? And sometimes you just have to give it a few days before you can try another draft. I think this group would help you though :)

You, the user who went by the name of Delphinus, chose to participate in this competition, although from the looks and the glances of those around you, you knew it would be folly.

Alright then :) Celestial-Fox, you will be the first to post your short story, since you were the first to join. If you don't want to be first, then pm me. Once she's posted her short story, it will mainly be just crits and compliments. if there is anyone else who wants to join, then pm me, and I'll get you started. Also I'll warn you ahead of time with a pm when its almost your turn to help out. So whenever you're ready Celestial-Fox.


Edit: Delphinus is now assigned to post the first story. Celestial-Fox wanted to pass her first turn, so now its whenever Delphinus is ready.
