[OLD] The Writing and Roleplaying Guild Writing_guild_main_by_tsuki_no_kagayaki-da0oz0g
Continued from the Writing and Roleplaying Guild Information Thread
Hesitating only for a moment, you sign your name in the book. As soon as you dotted your last 'i', crossed your last 't', and made sure that underscore looked like an underscore rather than a dash, the book was taken away with a big smile by a Guild Council Member. "Welcome to the forum!" she enthused.

"So!" a voice booms from behind you. You jump, dropping the pen, and turn to see Sailor Uranus smiling down at you, her hands on her hips and a mischievous smile on her face - she had planned that. "Ready for the rules, regulations, and all that jazz?" she asks as she puts a hand on your shoulder and already starts to steer you to a small room off the side of the gigantic space, seeming not to care whether you agreed or disagreed. As you approached the room you turned your head to see Sailor Mars, hoping for some sort of escape, only to see her responding to something on her communicator and leaving the room.

Sailor Uranus was in charge. ... this could be a good thing or a bad thing.

She shut the door behind you and turned on a light to illuminate a list of rules, which she read aloud, commenting on each one:

[OLD] The Writing and Roleplaying Guild Writing_guild_rules_by_tsuki_no_kagayaki-da0oyz4
The Grand Scroll of Rules:
 


Additional Rules or Guidelines May be Added in the Future

She stretches, "And that's about it! Take a look around in here to see how things are formatted, then fill out your information on that sheet over there to say that you've read and understood the guild rules and you'd like to join, follow the instructions there, and you're done! However, I'd suggest going to the Writer's Lounge to introduce yourself, too. Anyway, if you need me, you know where to find me!" she smiled, offered a little salute, and left.

Writing and Roleplaying Guild
Rank System


What is it?
A guild is an association of people for mutual aid or the pursuit of a common goal - I think we can all agree that our Writing and Roleplaying Guild does indeed fit those criteria. We're gathered here to help ourselves (and each other) become better writers. We strive for perfection: writing that elicits emotion and engages an audience. Together, I think we can help each other on our journeys.

One way that others have done so in the past was to initiate a ranking system within a guild. At the top you have Masters, then Journeymen, and finally Apprentices; we have adopted a similar system here, creating general guidelines for each section and always striving to reach the level above us, while learning in our current zones.

How are we sorted into our ranks?
When you officially join the guild, there will be a form to sign requesting for what your perceived rank is - you decide what rank you start out with: Apprentice or Journeyman. Be honest when following the guidelines below towards your rank as it will do you the most good and connect you with people your own perceived skill level and to those who could help you grow as a writer! Occasionally, there will be guild activities wherein only a certain rank may join or get points for participating, too!



[OLD] The Writing and Roleplaying Guild Apprentice
Apprentices, in general, are just starting out and are looking for any and all ways to improve and gain experience with different writing styles and types.



[OLD] The Writing and Roleplaying Guild Journeyman-1
If you are wondering if you meet Journeyman status, Journeymen typically meet a handful of the following: Having stories in progress that exceed 15k words; Having won a Writing Contest; Feel pretty confident in their writing; Actively participate in the Roleplaying Forum; posted completed short stories that you feel proud of.
Advanced Journeymen are writers who feel comfortable in their writing and have a lot of experience and skills to offer, but may not have completed their Masterpiece just yet.



[OLD] The Writing and Roleplaying Guild Master
To become a Master Writer of the Writing and Roleplaying Guild, you need to submit a Masterpiece Portfolio for other Guild Members to review; Masters within the Guild will then approve or deny your request; if your request is denied, they will submit a review and constructive criticism to help you along!
Masterpiece Portfolio Submission Board:
 






The Writing and Roleplaying Guild Council

The Writing and Roleplaying Guild Council is a group of Guild Members who work together to keep the Guild active and updated with Sanctioned Contests, Challenges, Games, Classes and Workshops; the Guild Council Members are whom you should bring ideas or suggestions to if you can think of a game or event you would like to become sanctioned.

Giving Constructive Criticism

Constructive Criticism VS Criticism wrote:
Constructive criticism: advice that is useful and intended to help or improve something, often with an offer of possible solutions
vs.
Criticism: The act of passing judgment as to the merits of anything.
2. The act of passing severe judgment; censure; faultfinding.
3. The act or art of analyzing and evaluating or judging the quality of a literary or artistic work, musical performance, art exhibit, dramatic production, etc.
We welcome constructive criticism here, not "plain-old" criticism because that kind is more faultfinding than helpful. Please be mindful of this!

~ When giving your critique on somebody's writing, please keep their feelings in mind. We're all humans here! well, I hope we all are Very Happy Please try to phrase your critique as nicely as possible while still remaining honest, and be sure to provide a way the author could work on  fixing that flaw. We want everyone and their written works to succeed. You want the story/fanfic/essay/etc. to succeed.

OP wrote:
Hey everybody! I'd like somebody to critique my short I'm working on! Any help is appreciated! I'd like you guys to state improvements I could do and any little tips and tricks that can make this piece better!
{insert written piece}
Constructive Criticism Example wrote:
Your short story is very lovely! I like how you used metaphor to describe your characters! However, I think if you used a little less metaphor, your points would come across more clearly. While metaphor is great, too much can detract from the story because, as a reader, I'm trying to figure out what you mean or tripping over longer descriptions as opposed to following along with the narrative.

I think a couple you could tweak would be...{provide examples to help the problem and person out}
Criticism Example (bad, do not use, kthx) wrote:
Wow, I could not follow that at all. Say what you mean to say or don't say anything at all.




Sailor Uranus's Technique for Constructive Criticism:
It's called the 'compliment sandwich.' Say something that you like, tell them something that you don't like and an idea on how to work on it, and finish with something else that you liked. For example:
Constructive Criticism Sandwich wrote:
(compliment): "Your opening paragraph is enthralling! It really grabs me - I especially like your use of the verb 'incinerate'."
(criticism): "But in the middle it kinda dragged on; you might want to watch the length of your sentences - they were really short and it made my mind take too many mental breaths, which made it seem like it dragged rather than flowed. ((Now for the constructive bit)) Perhaps you could combine a few of those sentences into longer phrases? It keeps the reader's interest a little better when you mingle short sentences with longer ones."
(compliment): "Anyway, I think it's great so far, and I can't wait to see what happens!"




Additional Critique examples, by Guild Member Juliko♥️!

@Juliko wrote:
Good: I love your story so far. The characters are all endearing and you have a very well crafted story. However, your pacing is a bit brisk, and there isn't enough description on this and that. Try expanding on it a little so it'll feel more like your readers are in that situation.

Bad: You put (insert serious issue here) in your story?! How could you?! You can't put this in a story meant for XXX! You're a horrible person! You don't care about anyone but yourself! Your whole story is horrible because of this! If you put this and that in your story, that must mean you support/advocate/condone it, you heartless victim blaming ableist hypocrite!

Good: You might want to adjust some of your character's traits or add more to them so they won't come off as stereotypes.

Bad: There's no hope for this offensive story. No matter how much you revamp or rewrite, it'll always be offensive, problematic, and outright racist.

Posting Guidelines in the Main Section
This main area of the Guild is for discussion and chatting about writing, requesting critiques or Beta Readers, and for joining writing groups and find writing buddies or writing circles; while most of the threads don't require a specific tag, just an accurate description of what you'll find within the thread, we request you do tag the following:

[Critique Request] Type of Fiction (Original, Fanfiction)
Description field: Genre of work or title
Tag any and all works that you would like a critique for using this tag for the title so guild members know when there's a work that has been posted wherein a critique is appreciated! Feedback Requests are treated like Critique Requests! It's all about reading and responding ♥

[Help] Subject
Description: More detailed description of type of help needed
Please tag any board wherein you're asking for help so we can spot it and get you that help as soon as we can! Note: You can find tutorials and resources in our Classes, Tutorials, and Resources area, and for specifically academic things that don't necessarily have to do with writing, you can check out the GC Library and Study Hall. However, if you can't find them there, totally post it in here! We're happy to help you out or hunt down resources for you!




What NOT to put in this section:
We've separated out the Writing Guild into various areas to help keep things organized and easy to find! To help keep it that way, please post the following types of threads in their appropriate areas:


What the Guild is NOT for:

  • Completed Works - Use the Writer's Section to post things that are finished and polished like you like them! We're for working on and developing stories here!
  • Writing Collections - Use the Writer's Section~
  • Roleplaying* - There's a whole section for that! *Note: Some Classes or Workshops will request participants to practice roleplaying specific themes or story parts (openers, action sequences, endings, etc.) in the Practice Area, but all other roleplaying should be kept in the Roleplaying Section
  • Planning Roleplays - There's entire section for that~

Why should you join the Writing and Roleplaying Guild if all of the information is available to everyone?
The perks!

While all threads are visible by everyone here at the Galaxy Cauldron Forums, only Guild Members can officially take part in our Classes and Workshops and get feedback on whatever skill set is being tutored within those sessions, and only Guild Members may post in the practice area to better hone those skills. 

Additionally, only Guild Members may take part in our Writing and Roleplaying Apprenticeship program. Over in our Contests, Challenges, and Games, while all GCers can play and are encouraged to enter, only Guild Members may create and post their own contests, challenges, and games. 

Joining is easy! 
Just go to our Guild Member Information thread and fill out the form and submit your name in the link provided there; within a day you will be added to the group and all of our guild services and opportunities will be yours!
