So... About Trick's VN circle proposal...

#1 Post by DNAniel213 » Fri May 30, 2014 8:54 pm

I understand there are a lot of writing circles for novelists, but not sure if there are any for English language VNs.

I won't put up a wall of text here, but Wikipedia has a descriptive page on what writing circles are and how they work here.

So my question is, are many people interested in forming writing circles? If enough are interested, I'd also like to discuss suitable formats. For example, how best to share writing samples, suitable ways to give feedback, and how we can group people together sensibly. This is all with the presumption that it will take place online, as we are a sparse community, geographically speaking.
fom http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewto ... =4&t=25416
So.. This is kinda like a thread bump. Probably.This isn't an excuse for the lack of explaining skills. Promise.

Anyways, I would like to join or form circles with the newer people. May they be leaning towards writing, art, music, and other VN aspects they'd want to improve themselves on. In my current project, I'm doing everything alone. I guess you could say being in a group having different people with different opinions are better.

So.. Is anyone interested? (Hides in a corner because no one replied) yay someone actually replied


So... We currently have:
SakuraHughes
Broodelin
Cola Cat
burnt_offering
MizuSenpai
Avalanche
And last, but not the least, the helix void angel of doom that por forth from eter- Me

And we shouldn't just be a writing circle by name. That's when the need for communication comes in.
So... How?
*IRC could be the best if you like being anonymous(oh, by the way, chrome has the CIRC app as an IRC client)
*Create a supported forum.(It'll take a while to make.. But still...)
*Facebook Group(we're pretty much limitless in terms of posting, images, and chatting, but it isn't really good for a supposed-to-be-anonymous bunch. Unless you say otherwise)
*Lemmasoft Forum(We can increase our post numbers here XD but , the newer posts can get deeper and deeper away. But then again, anyone can immediately join and leave the circle whenever they please, so it's a good thing, right?)
*Google Folder(I don't really know what this is, but it's like a desktop that's shared between members in a group.)



And another thing, once the circle gets settled, and if by chance everyone has spare time, we can make an OELVN(uncle Mugen said it has to be OELVN) of our own circle... But that's still ems away.

Suggestions? :)

edit:
Sakura suggested Google folder and it seems to be efficient in file sharing, so.. we're going to use it!
Ok, we'll be using google drive for files and everything.

And for those new to google drive, Sakura made a bit to at least get you to the group. (She's doing most of the work =_=)
1. Go to your google drive
https://drive.google.com/#my-drive

2. On the left side you should see "My Drive" followed by "Shared with Me"
Click that

3. You should see on your right after you click it "Writing Circle Groups"
Click that

4. You should see a document called " {Welcome} Please Read"
Click that
In addition, we've tweaked the Google drive group up a bit to at least condition it for those who aren't familiar with it.(I'm nowhere near exempted)

Oh and lastly, if there are any questions, clarifications whatsoever, feel free to post a reply or pm either SakuraHughes or moi. :P
(Oh, more lastlys) If you're interested in joining you may pm SakuraHughes your Gmail or whatever Google address you have.
Thanks! :D (someone asked for a smiley)

I'd like to join a VN circle too! Maybe yours...?

I wouldn't say "mine", though. How do I put it....
Have you ever felt like you don't want anyone handling you, but then you don't want to handle anyone?
That's pretty much the point of my separate post.
And yea, I'd gladly form one with you, but a circle can't really form with two points.

How about three points? I want to connect with people and stuff but I'm just too shy/nervous/embarrassed. If Broodelin is joining then it'll be a bit better though (because I know her already - wait - are you a girl @Broodelin?)

Phew! It would be awkward if you were a boy and I'd been calling you "she/her" all this time. >.<

Pardon my late reply.. (I was ----I have no excuse--- watching anime)

Of course! That'd be great, guys!

Multiple circles should be fine, as long as....ya' know....
I don't know.

So... How're we going to communicate?

We could make a google folder group?
