    Hello everyone>>>

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by camorakahn, Apr 18, 2013.

    I figured I should join one of the forums to make some friends and find a writing Partner go help my finish a novel I am working on. I am 5 chapters in already, full outline completed and all my character bio's finished. I am getting overwhelmed with work and home and was looking for one writer to go in with me 50/50 on the novel. I am looking for some one 3--4 nights a week to work one their chapters and I want to have a draft completed by the end of the summer. If your interested let me know. Otherwise how is everyone doing?

    before you have any potential partner write a single word for your ms, be sure to have a collaboration agreement signed and sealed... to not do so is suicidal!... horror stories abound in re even the best of friends ending up in court battling over rights to co-authored works...

    you can email me for a link to the best collaboration agreement around... it's for screenplays, but can be easily adapted to prose works...

    meanwhile, welcome aboard!

    love and hugs, maia

    Welcome, Dino!
    Are you certain you really want to take on a partner? If you have a vision for your story, you might be better off just taking a longer time to work on it. Collaboration on writing pieces can be hard, even with friends. It's a little different if you already know each other and come up with a story together, and mesh well, along with sharing the same vision and goals. (And even then, it's possible for things to go very badly.)

    Welcome to the forum, Dino :) As others have said, I'd be careful (very careful) when choosing someone for collab. Things can go south incredibly quickly. I wish you the best in finding someone though!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Dino!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirements. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter! We also have a growing short story club (think book club, but with short stories!), which you can find stickied in the Book Discussion forum.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.
