Free to Write (FTW), is an organization that was inspired by Flipside. Flipside is a place to hold contests and participate in contests, but it is more tuned for staying appropriate for all audiences. Though this is to no disrespect to Flipside (a great place to hold and host fun contests!), FTW was created for writers with more 'adult' tastes, to hold contests, to participate in contests, and talk about any troubles they might have with writing adult content.

[Emily] has declared herself Administrator of Free to Write. Questions about this wiki, for the moment, should be directed to her. Also refer to [Mister Saint] if you have questions about Flipside.

Special thanks to [NightHawk] for creating the banner (with a bunch of babble, ain't that cool!), and to [Mister Saint] for the temporary dividers from WritersCo Graphics.


Featured Contests

Revenge by Kuzco.

An excellent choice of contest by [Kuzco]. Use your imagination and make your readers shiver in delight.

Picture Perfect by [Aeolynn]

Take a look at a picture and write some contemplative words on it. This is a good exercise for new writers looking to practice word choice skills.

Sin of Lust by [Emily].

This contest details the sin of Lust. See here for more details.

100 Words Winners by [Emily]

Moved from Flipside.

Absolute Horror by [SleepingDragon]

Be creative. Spook us! BOO!

2006-01-16 [Kuzco]: Hey there Emily, looks like I'm the first to host. Hope it's a fairly good one I came up with. :)

2006-01-21 [SleepingDragon]: I'm hoping this wiki will help me push the envelope a little bit. I'm good at beating around the bush sometimes and can also go way over the top (as in porn, etc) but to really challenge the boundaries of normal reading levels or whatever is something I feel I could be better at

2006-01-21 [Kuzco]: first step's taken. Now you just have to get better. ;)

2006-01-22 [Emily]: Post some stuff, [SleepingDragon], I'll be glad to comment and put in some perspective on anything you want me to. You can also try reading some of my current erotica up if you think it will help.

2006-01-22 [SleepingDragon]: I read your erotica [Emily]. Yes, that was very helpful in steering me in the right direction. I'd also like to recommend that anyone else interested check out your "He Wore a Mask" story. It's very nice.

2006-01-22 [Kuzco]: It is right? Liked it a lot too :P

2006-01-23 [Emily]: Aw, thanks so much. Make sure to send me some reminders to read your stuff -- I'll forget and that is bad! =(

2006-01-23 [Aeolynn]: Can I host a contest where the writers write a story from a picture?

2006-01-23 [Emily]: As long as the picture is appropriate (nothing hardcore porn, please), then I do not see why not. And as long as it fits within the rules (meaning no celebrity photos and nothing that you don't have permission to use.)

2006-01-23 [Aeolynn]: okiday, btw, im mormon.... porn just is wrong and against my religion... so dont worry bout it  ^_^

2006-01-23 [Emily]: Well cheers to ya, matey :) ... kind of makes me wish my other Mormon friends would take that into account. But you guys have something against ice tea, right?

2006-01-23 [Kuzco]: Ice tea? That's intriguing, never heard about that.

2006-01-23 [Emily]: Some friends of mine and an ex are all Mormon... I read the Book of Mormon but I don't remember anything about ice tea being bad. But... yeah, they aren't allowed to drink ice tea as far as I know.

2006-01-23 [Emily]: I think it's 'cause ice tea and caffienated and they aren't allowed to have caffienated drinks... because caffiene is a stimulant and they aren't allowed to have stimulants. ... not sure why...

2006-01-23 [Kuzco]: Well..."We were created by god, we're his creations and are what we are, like he made us" maybe a stimulant or adictive product may have some contradition with that unwavering rule. I dunno, socially I only know catholics (in the whole portugal, there's atheist and catholics, mostly catholics obviously.) so I can't be sure. How about it Sphinx? May you exlain? I'm curious :P

2006-01-23 [Aeolynn]: We cant have 'hot drinks' which include coffee, tea/ice tea with caffeine because yes, its a stimulant, and also because its addicting. Although it is to our dissgression whether or not we can have it in pop.

2006-01-23 [Kuzco]: alrighty then. :) thanks

2006-01-24 [SleepingDragon]: I'm agnostic so I can drink anything. I just wonder what to drink next :D

2006-01-24 [Emily]: Green tea is always good.

2006-01-24 [Aeolynn]: personally, i'll take orange juice anyday, no pulp >.<

2006-01-24 [Kuzco]: Water, Ice tea or fruit juice yeah, no other drinks will ever see my stomach :P. I've drank Green tea btw, i like it but it works as laxative on me...for some reason. :S

2006-01-24 [Aeolynn]: lol

2006-01-24 [Emily]: I like really high pulp in my orange juice. More vitamins from that and it gives me something to chew o.o. And be entertained with... Green tea also helps me with any tummy aches. It's just cleaning out your system, and it'll usually do that if it's good kind of green tea. It goes away after a while. I had green tea ice cream the other day... it was... interesting.

2006-01-24 [Aeolynn]: I can imagine that... eww

2006-01-24 [Kuzco]: I bet it was! It was quite an experience for me, but yeah, that's what my dad told me while I was ranting and complaining about "you're a pig, if Green tea does taht to you, I hate to think what kind of diet you're having"......he had a point. ;) . Drank it the other day, nothing happened...that is worth discussing.

2006-01-24 [SleepingDragon]: I like my Sweet Dreams tea (chamomile and habiscus)... but usually I do coffee

2006-01-25 [Emily]: Coffee always leaves such an awful taste in your mouth, though. I usually dislike a lot of teas, except Tazo and Arizona <3. As for the green tea ice cream... it was actually very excellent, with chocolate chips mixed in.

2006-01-25 [SleepingDragon]: Finished my 1st 'tasteful' piece of erotica today. It can be found in my writings under erotica. Mad props to [Emily] for inspiration and steering me in the right direction, and also to [Po] for her usual proofreading and nitpicking.

2006-01-25 [Emily]: Yay! That is so awesome!

2006-01-25 [Aeolynn]: coffee....ick.

2006-01-27 [SleepingDragon]: I'm trying not to mention it again. shhh ;)

2006-01-27 [Emily]: Hey SleepD, why don't you post your story for us somewhere around heres?

2006-01-27 [SleepingDragon]: which one are you talking about? My book project?

2006-01-27 [Emily]: The 'Anna' story.

2006-01-27 [SleepingDragon]: 268.Erotica.Anna is in my writings.

2006-01-27 [Emily]: link!

2006-01-27 [SleepingDragon]: done :)

2006-01-28 [Emily]: Okay all, I have just added What is 'HDP'? to the links list -- if you are planning on hosting a contest with a sexual theme, please go there and read that and comment if you may! Thanks all.

2006-01-29 [Emily]: I've moved the 100 words contest from Flipside to here. Hope no one minds!

2006-01-29 [Kaimee]: But.. Why? And more to the point, why did you change the actual wiki page? You could have just moved the link to this page, and edited the original page to say it was a Fere To Write contest instead of a flipside one. Easily done :/ Why transfer it all to a new wiki entirely?

2006-01-29 [Emily]: When I post the winners, I need the whole page with me. and 100 words looked funny to me :/ I thought it did for everyone? it was off-alignment in my browser. It may just be my settings. It looks better now for some reason.

2006-01-29 [Kaimee]: I think it was just your browser :P And it makes more sense if it's for the winners, when are you going to close it? oh, and also, when you do post the winners, maybe link to that page from the old wiki.. something like "Winners can be found at.. etc."?

2006-01-29 [Emily]: I'll see that when I replace it if my browser doesn't mess with it again. And new link'll happen. Lastly... I'll be making judgment in just a little while (currently preoccupied... aka stalling).

2006-02-01 [SleepingDragon]: What's up people? It's quiet around here

2006-02-01 [Aeolynn]: people need to join!!!!!!

2006-02-01 [SleepingDragon]: Yes, It's an awesome wiki methinks

2006-02-01 [Aeolynn]: i agree

2006-02-01 [Emily]: I've been working on fixing some of the wikis. Make sure you guys keep up-to-date and don't forget to update the Free to Write Contest Section when you decide to host a contest!

2006-02-01 [Aeolynn]: okidokay!

2006-02-08 [SleepingDragon]: Well, this is cool...I'm up against my daughter in one contest and my son-in-law in another. Can't wait to see how things shake down. Good entries, both of them. :)

2006-02-08 [Fuzzysabeast]: Thanx for the compliment Sleepy D but your entries are good as well.:)

2006-02-17 [Kaimee]: Beat them SleepyD, show em who's boss ;) Can't have the youngsters getting all cocky can we? :P Bad for disipline! XD

2006-02-17 [Fuzzysabeast]: *laughing* I would be proud to have SleepyD win just as long as the rest of us get a fair chance.

2006-02-17 [Fuzzysabeast]: When Life Turns Against You still needs participants. I hope to have a few more people show their creativity.

2006-02-17 [SleepingDragon]: Thanks for the vote of confidence :D At least between the 3 of us, we'll have a good chance of bringing something home!

2006-05-03 [Emily]: Man, did I kill this place to what...

2006-05-03 [Kaimee]: If you got on occaisionally it'd be more active :P I think the flipside's the otherside for mature contests is where your competition lies :P

2006-07-06 [Fuzzysabeast]: lol
