    • Chary (Or Chary5325, if someone's already taken the latter)
    • Mostly narratives, though from time to time, I like writing poetry
    • I've spoken English all my life.
    • Oh, dear. I'm active here everyday, on the hour. With school having been easy this year, I haven't had much to do besides log in here and post stuff.
    • Well, with all the time on my hands, I should be writing a whole lot more than I am right now. I guess I write maybe...once every two weeks? I really need to start writing more.
    • The following is something I wrote today, it's just a small excerpt of something I may or may not continue. Sorry if it's too short.

    (If I find my poetry book, I might add some to this post)

    Welcome to the Guild! Feel free to share and discuss to your heart's content. Sadly enough most of our members aren't as active as they used to. The most common posters are Shinigami357, Astrangeone, and I. Since I devote most of my time writing, I barely have any time to completely devote to the guild anymore.

    Hey guys, if you're interested in taking on other writers in a tourney, I have great news.

    By the Gods, I'd love to join. But, but, but... Internet credits are hard to come by at the moment, so :(

    Also, I'm not in Fiction Press yet. I mean, I have a FF.net account, but I haven't looked into Fiction Press yet. Hm... Choices, choices...

    Just to update, I have lost my first round in the tourney, but won the first round in the loser's bracket. If all goes well, I will rise to defeat all in a fit of glory and awesomeness.

    I'm so sorry for not positing in so long! I've been busy with school and stuff so I kinda forgot about GBATemp for a while :P
    I've been working on a LOT of books lately, and I'll post a snippet of my main novel: Operation CERES. I hope you enjoy! :)

    Hey guys, guess what? After long arduous hours, I've finally finished the majority of the first book of Terrestria. I'm now finishing up my third draft, and was hoping someone from our ranks would read though and give me an impressions review like I might see on Amazon.

    I plan on going into line editing and stuff once I'm finished with this draft and hopefully start talking to agents to seek publication. :D

    I'm on GBAtemp everyday.
    I write rarely, but lately, I have really been getting good at it.

    I don't have small stories, but I do have a few reviews
    The Suffering Review
    Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines

    Here you go, the story is short, but I'm thinking about making it a series though :)

    Added to the OP. The guild has pretty much died out since its inception (I blame my laziness), but you're welcome to share your work here. :D

    Nah, you shouldn't blame yourself for that :O.
    I'm actually planning to write some bigger story, but I just can't seem to catch a spark and start writing it. :lol: Got any idea how to find motivation?

    Motivation is hard to find. My advice is to plot it out, and when you've got the bigger details hammered out just write it. You can write a novel in 30 minutes a day, but you'll never reach the end if your write when you simply feel like it.

    Man. I just looked back over the early days of the guild and I teared up little. Curse my lack of commitment. This could have been something great, but I just couldn't cut it. Meh, at the very least I decided to look over my old work. I actually managed to clean up a few of my shorts and I'm considering re-posting them.
