I know this community is pretty dead, but I figured I might as well toss this up.

“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”
― Dr. Seuss

Worldsmyths is a non-role playing community of fantasy writers and readers who enjoy looking through the wrong end of a telescope, filled with writers of diverse backgrounds and experiences. We discuss everything from writer's block to cliches, to magic systems and technology as well as other things such as helpful resources and more. Our library is members only and serves as a great way to read the writing that's been posted and give chapter-by-chapter reviews. We also have writing challenges every two weeks and a trove of writing prompts.

Turn your telescope on to Worldsmyths and join us today!

*Writing discussion and resources
*Writing prompts and challenges
*Beta reading
*Members only library with opportunity for feedback
*Friendly staff and members
and much more!

It's like a day early (at least before October) but I'm excited, so I figured I'd post the meme. :P I added some new questions to it this year.

Have fun!

For anyone who wants to pimp the meme/community in general:

Poll #1865826 NaNo Friending Meme

When would you rather have the friending meme?

Now! I want new friends now!
Wait until early-to-mid October
Other, will comment

I was thinking about the fact that people showed interest in doing a friending meme, but I wanted to know when you guys would like to do it. Is it too early to do it now? Would you rather wait and do it in October? Let me know!

Disclaimer: I absolutely and totally completely fail to the extreme and I forgot about this community and just kinda let it fade into inactivity.

But! Since everyone's favorite writing event of the year is approaching (...sort of. Still kinda early), I figured I'd post for the heack of it.

Who is planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this year?
Do you have any idea(s) for what you might write? Genre? Plot? Basic plot? A character?
Are you a pantser or a planner?

In terms of the community...anyone interested in getting things going around here again?*
Anyone wanna do a friending meme for NaNo when it gets a little closer?

Inspired by the fact that I'm currently working on trying to figure out what I'm going to write. I have bits and pieces of ideas, but nothing set in stone. Anything I have is more like...small details? Like, apparently I might have trees that move around and have something poison-like on the tips of the branches. And I might have a dragon that heals by licking a wound with his tongue.

*I don't really know whether or not -I- want to still mod around here or not, but if the other two mods still want to, I'm cool with that or...whatever.

As an ending note, here is a cool story prompt site that has neat prompts, and the fantasy ones, specifically, are actually pretty decent and not silly like on most prompt sites.

Of The Pistol (ofthepistol) is an original fiction challenge community created byslightlymore and beforeskylines to make up for the devastating lack of good prompting communities here on Livejournal. Here, we plan to enliven our pens with challenges in hopes that we can take our creativity to the next level (and have a good time doing so). This community is open to new members and we hope that you will join us and find out what it is like to indulge the voices inside your mind.

Hey everyone. I hope your NaNo's are going better than mine is! (I'm ridiculously far behind but I'm trying to push myself through it!)

What's your word count progress right now? Are you behind or ahead? What are your characters doing right at this moment? Have you done anything truly cruel to them yet? What scene(s) are you looking forward to writing right now? What's your favorite bit of dialogue or something that you've recently written right now?

My answers will be below. Happy writing!

Come here to tell us about your progress for day one!

I'll try to do this sort of post every few days or so for people to update on word counts and such. ^_^

NaNo starts in exactly 23 hours and 30 minutes (in EST). Are you guys ready? I'm not. D:

The buddies feature is finally up on the site, so I figured we could have a friending meme to add each other on there.

Have fun!

Edit: and if you feel like pimping the meme, here's a code for you.
