Writer's Companion

This group is for writers, readers, and aspiring writers on Elftown, whether you be a poety, short story writer, novelist, or anything else.

All wiki that are listed under WC can be tampered with if it is constructive (aside from WCArmy, which is just for fun anyway). I want this place to be a free exchange for writers, so don't hesitate to help your fellow writers. Please just be sure to read any rules that are at the top of the page. Most of the pages don't have much for rules, but there are a few that do for a reason. Thank you. ^_^


To link to this page, simply type [Writer's Companion@wiki] exactly as shown ^_^

If you wish to join, please visit WCMembers and add your name.

If you are a Wyvern's Writer and recently got rejected for the size of your file, please check here. I wrote an e-mail to the Elfwood Support and received a few answers as to how to fix it. MWAObjection

WCArmy - not a place to join; just a place to play around. ^_^

WCBadges - badges that have been created for the use of Writer's Companion members or those who support it. Feel free to create and add your own here.

WCChallenge - the first challenge is up. Entries are due by 2004-11-15 Elftown time. Good luck!

WCComments - learn how to give and get the comments you want.

WCCritisismPlease - here you can put your name up and your story (either at a wiki or at Elfwood) if you would like some help.

WCDiscussion - this is just for general discussion about writing. Rant about muse abandonment or ask for help in your plot line...and anything else.

WCEveryStory - to help you reach your daily sentence quota as a writer, please feel free to add one sentence per day on this story.

WCLinks - All links have been moved here. You may add a link here if it has to do with writing, reading, or related subjects.

WCMembers - if you are member of this page, you can place your name here with a short description to help others know who you are.

WCMoodMusicMain - if you need some music to help you write, check here. Find suggestions from other writers and add your own.

WCOfThe- - hopefully I can keep this so it is word and quote of the day. ^_^

WCProgress - announce the progress that you have made on your writing projects whether they are big or small and be proud.

WCPublishing - looking to publish your written work?

WCSentenceStructure - a place to see how to change up your sentence structures. You can add your own tips for writing as well.

WCThesaurus - here is where you can get help if you cannot find the right word or phrase. Sometimes it takes more than a thesaurus.

WCTrade - Same as an art trade, but with words. ^.^

WCWriter'sBlock - a place to find ideas on how to break your "writer's block". Feel free to add your own.

2005-07-27 [Blaze the Nameless]: Okay idea.

2005-07-27 [Particle Girl]: Yeah.. that and I haven't really written anything great yet. I want to post something I wrote in my real journal about buying journals. I don't think anyone would steal it. o.0

2005-07-27 [Cascading water lillies]: Well, the stuff I have floating around on here is already published, so, if they want to go ahead and steal it, send it to a publisher, they will appear on what is known as a 'black list' for plagerism.

2005-07-27 [chasingpeace]: everything that you write,once you write it, has an official copyright. If you try to publish something months or years after you puy it on here, and it has already been published, it all comes down to who wrote it first.

2005-07-28 [Blaze the Nameless]: Really? I didn't know that!

2005-07-29 [chasingpeace]: yup!...that's a handy little bit of info right there....

2005-07-29 [Blaze the Nameless]: Thanks!

2005-07-29 [chasingpeace]: you're welcome!

2005-07-30 [Blaze the Nameless]: Acutally, has anyone heard of fiction press?

2005-07-30 [chasingpeace]: ...hmn...i dont think so, no...

2005-07-30 [Cascading water lillies]: Yup, I have..and 'Athena Press'..

2005-07-30 [Blaze the Nameless]: What's Athena Press?

2005-07-31 [Cascading water lillies]: Athena Press is a company who will publish your book..but you have to pay the costs BEFORE it goes to print. A good publisher will pay YOU to have your book published. They will take their COSTS out of THE PROFITS, and then a cut. They usually offer you an advance which can be negotiable, and then a percentage of the sales, which should be very reasonable..e.g, a thousand advance, then 80 percent from sales/royalties, AND they take care of advertisments, afterall, it's in their interests too, to help sell your book. If they wish to publish you in hard back, then it will invite reviews, which gives wider coverage for you.

2005-07-31 [Blaze the Nameless]: I think I'll go with the ones that will pay me.

2005-07-31 [Cascading water lillies]: Good girl. You should never have to pay someone to publish you. 

2005-07-31 [Blaze the Nameless]: Thank you! ^^ I mean, you're the one who wrote it not them

2005-07-31 [chasingpeace]: rules to live by

2005-08-01 [Blaze the Nameless]: I was wondering if anyone wasn't busy could someone proof read something for me?

2005-08-02 [Particle Girl]: I'd love to! Send it my way if you like.

2005-08-02 [chasingpeace]: i don't enjoy proofing things...i'm a good speller but a bad typist...those two don't work together.

2005-08-03 [Blaze the Nameless]: I bet they don't

2005-08-03 [chasingpeace]: i can assure you, lol

2005-08-03 [Shining light]: better than being a bad speller but a good typist...

2005-08-04 [chasingpeace]: lol

2005-08-21 [FireOpal]: Just a question I hope someone can answer... is there an age limit on being able to publish your own work? With copyright and everything?

2005-08-21 [Blaze the Nameless]: I don't think so.

2005-08-21 [Shining light]: nope. copyright is applicable as soon as you write/draw/create something of your own and by yourself. Age is not a requisite of the copyright Act (At least, not in Australia)

2005-08-22 [Blaze the Nameless]: I don't think that's true here either in America.

2005-08-22 [chasingpeace]: nope

2005-08-22 [Blaze the Nameless]: Okay. Just checking. That reminds me, I need to work on my story as well.

2005-08-31 [FireOpal]: I'm in the UK... I wonder if it's different

2005-08-31 [chasingpeace]: probably not

2005-08-31 [Blaze the Nameless]: I doubt it

2005-09-13 [eyes of frost]: Hey....What is going on everyone? I have not been here in a while

2005-09-13 [eyes of frost]: And I have to post a contest...where would it go? The Chapter Contest I think that's the link.

2005-11-16 [-Shadow-Nell-]: Hey guys! Are you interested in judging writing (or art) contests? Or maybe you need a couple judges for your? Check out Judges for Hire if you do!

2005-11-16 [Blaze the Nameless]: I haven't been here in forever

2005-11-16 [-Shadow-Nell-]: I know exactly what you mean, I really need to do some catching up on my favourite wikis!

2005-11-22 [PR3++Y .L!++L3. C!G4R3++3]: i'm kinda new here but i was wondering if someone could critique a poem for me. brutal honesty welcomed, wanted, and needed. thanx.

2005-11-23 [Mira Ravenheart]: I'd love to, though I'm new here as well.

2005-11-23 [PR3++Y .L!++L3. C!G4R3++3]: well, i must admit that is EXTREMLY controvertial. if you are a christian in any way, you don't want to read it.

2005-11-23 [Blaze the Nameless]: Don't want to read what?

2005-11-23 [PR3++Y .L!++L3. C!G4R3++3]: My newest poem

2005-11-24 [Mira Ravenheart]: I'm agnostic, so I should be fine with it.

2005-12-03 [Danas]: Ahhhhhh! Hello boys and girls. its time for some fun! have you heard of the sand man? No I am not talking about the one who puts you to sleep at night . I am talking about the one who sneeks in at night and kills who ever he please and then leaves you a nice note saying you wanted it to happing have a nice day. Then the night comes and you are all alone in your bed awake and scared that he mite come but he don't. So you saty awake so many nights and then boom throw your window comes the SandMan looking at his hourglass saying { you thot i wouldn't come when you said I wish I was dead know.} So he smiles. not a nice smile but a evil smile and then pokes you on the nose and he is gone .nexst

2005-12-03 [Danas]: You wake up and there he is looking at you face to face so then he kills you!

2005-12-04 [WarriorElfMaid]: Uhhh... What have you been smoking?!

2005-12-27 [Mira Ravenheart]: I'd like to know what he's been smoking O.o interesting ah... story? I was just reading a Sandman comic actually. Really good, rather creepy, but really good. Far better than that.

2005-12-27 [Mira Ravenheart]: Does anyone here roleplay? I find it helps quite a bit with writer's block. And if you're looking for a good roleplay *smiles innocently* You could always check out mine... which I am really rather fond of. Check out: In a Dragon's Eye. Thank you kindly.

2005-12-29 [The Coffee-Prophet]: I'm an RP addict, I haven't been RPing for too long though, since the 23 of may.

2005-12-29 [Mira Ravenheart]: Then join! lol, I'd appreciate some good members.

2006-08-01 [chasingpeace]: *pokes back with stick* I just happen to be someone who appreciates writing and the wiki system...but if you must brandish other Elftowners, do it while being writer-ish...or something...

2006-09-14 [Linderel]: *blinks* Of course D&D is still around. Why wouldn't it be?

2006-09-14 [The Coffee-Prophet]: Geek persecution? No such thing? what about the Soccer inquisistion? Just a myth? Damn

2006-09-14 [Blaze the Nameless]: I find it amazing that game is still around!

2006-09-15 [Rhammin]: the game is fucking awsome, how can it not be around.

2006-09-18 [chasingpeace]: There are people in my school that still play it...that game will never die

2006-09-18 [Blaze the Nameless]: *sighs* Oh well

2006-09-24 [Rhammin]: that's right it won't ever die.

2006-09-25 [Blaze the Nameless]: Oh well.

2006-09-30 [Rhammin]: what do you mean, oh well?

2006-09-30 [Blaze the Nameless]: I mean, 'Oh well.'

2006-09-30 [Rhammin]: what' do you intend to imply by that?

2006-09-30 [Blaze the Nameless]: *sighs*

2006-09-30 [Rhammin]: d+d is a great game.

2006-09-30 [Linderel]: Agreed.

2006-10-01 [Blaze the Nameless]: IF your a geek, then sure.

2006-10-01 [Linderel]: And there is nothing wrong with being a geek. If you're not interested in the game, you still don't have to make a point of lamenting its existence.

2006-10-05 [Blaze the Nameless]: ...........I never said that being a geek was a bad thing. Ah, forget I said anything.

2006-10-11 [Rhammin]: geeks are different than nerds, and i am a nerd.

2006-10-15 [Blaze the Nameless]: I'm a geek.

2006-10-15 [Linderel]: In my language, there is only one equivalent for both of those words.

2006-10-15 [Blaze the Nameless]: And that word is?

2006-10-16 [chasingpeace]: loser! I'm kidding, of course...I'm not that mean. Or am I. >.> <.<

2006-10-16 [Linderel]: The word's 'nörtti'. Can mean either geek or nerd, or both at the same time.

2006-10-17 [Blaze the Nameless]: LOL. I want that on a shirt.

2006-11-06 [Rhammin]: sorry, blazey, but you're not a geek.

2006-11-06 [Blaze the Nameless]: Yes I am.

2006-11-07 [chasingpeace]: judge not lest ye be judged

2006-11-08 [Blaze the Nameless]: You should listen to this guy. He speaks the truth!

2006-11-11 [chasingpeace]: am i "the guy"...cuz im not one...otherwise i'd be "zansolo". See the 'o'? yeah..

2006-11-15 [Blaze the Nameless]: Don't worry. You're still loved. ^.^

2006-11-16 [chasingpeace]: yay! i love being loved...

2006-11-17 [Blaze the Nameless]: That's good.

2006-11-18 [chasingpeace]: I'd like to see what happened if someone hated being loved.

2006-11-20 [Rhammin]: sorry blazey, but you are more nerd than geek

2006-11-25 [WarriorElfMaid]: I think you're both 'tards. But in a good way. :P

2006-11-27 [chasingpeace]: i love the word 'zanzabar'... it reminds me of Muppet Treasure Island.

2006-11-27 [Blaze the Nameless]: I love the Muppets! I'm getting the Fraggle Rock first season DVD for Christmas!

2006-11-28 [chasingpeace]: I can't get enough of those puppets...

2006-11-28 [Blaze the Nameless]: Me either.

2006-11-29 [WarriorElfMaid]: Awards for "The Most Random and Amusing People" go to... (drum roll, please!) Blaze the Nameless and Zansola!!!!

2006-11-29 [WarriorElfMaid]: Keep up the good work :P ;)

2006-12-03 [chasingpeace]: "To Zanzabar, to meet the Zanzabarbarians!"

2006-12-03 [Blaze the Nameless]: Sweet! I won an award! I'm amusing! Cool!

2006-12-28 [WarriorElfMaid]: What do you need a critic for?

2006-12-31 [Blaze the Nameless]: Something I'm writing.

2007-01-01 [WarriorElfMaid]: Anybody can critique. What in particular do you want critiqued in your writings? Grammar and spelling?

2007-01-02 [Blaze the Nameless]: Well I really want someone to tell me if the story sounds good.

2007-01-03 [Rhammin]: who want a hug for the holidays?

2007-01-05 [chasingpeace]: *hugs all around* Yay for being one year older!
