Group Rules

Hello and welcome! We only have a few rules, so please consider them before posting or commenting on the works within.

Rule 1: Please post your "Write-A-Novel" writing exercises in the appropriate exercise folders found in the gallery; and make sure that your exercise is appropriately titled with the number of the exercise you are posting.

Rule 2: When commenting on other people's work, please be honest with your criticisms but also respectful and uplifting. We criticize because we want our art to improve and because we want to build one another up in skill and in spirit; please make sure your comments reflect this ideal.

Rule 3: As I would like this group to be appropriate for DA members of all ages, please refrain from posting fetish and pornographic content.

Don't be too concerned about fearing the rules. If there is an issue that is not a blatant and grotesque violation of the rules or common decency, I'll privately message you and try to work out the issue in the most polite way possible. So have fun and enjoy your membership in the group.

Workshop: Epilogue

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 28, 2018, 12:27 PM
It's nearly a year since we started and we've lost a few of you along the way (but don't forget that you can submit your chapters at any time!), but we've loved every minute of writing our novels...and sharing them.  Finally, it's time to end them.

Your Task

The big battle has concluded and now your characters need you to wrap things up.  With all the excitement of the story climax, it's time to bring your novel full circle to its conclusion.  JosephBlakeParker has some wonderful tips in this article, including a couple options on how to end things, or leave them open...wink wink, maybe a sequel.

Examples to Follow

As always, the wonderful JosephBlakeParker has already completed this month's workshop for you. If you have any questions, we're always here to answer them.

Submitting to the Group

Please submit your entries to this gallery folder. If you would prefer not to put your novel's information on the internet for all to see, you're welcome to submit to Sta.sh and note GreenBat-Tutorials with a link to be included with the round up article.

Deadline for Inclusion in the Round Up Journal: Friday, March 23rd

Hi, teacher!

Just wondering if I could make and post an exercie twice in the same folder, so I could have you see them and comment them (not an exact copy or an edit, I mean an exercise with different solutions. I´m bad at explaining)

Also, have you planned of making a tutorial based on descriptions (like extension based on genre, when to introduce, balance between features or how to focus, that sort of thing)?

Yes, posting the same exercise would be fine so long as it is a significantly different work. 

My tutorials on description will sort of be cut up into a bunch of upcoming tutorials, but it should be what you're looking for :)

Err, do you take only English stuff? Because I feel writers of different languages (such as myself, I tend to write in German) would greatly profit as well.

No, I just haven't received any submissions in any other language. But feel free :) Hopefully we can get some other German speakers who can interact with your work.

Okay then, I'll do some exercises in German! Especially the character ones will be helpful, I hope.
