Novel Writing Workshop

Under Construction

Many of us have always dreamed of writing a novel. In fact, for many budding writers, a successful novel is the ultimate dream. However, most of us epically fail at the endeavor.
With the goal of helping you finish a novel, [RiverStar] created the Novel Writing Workshop. She is no longer active at WritersCo, but we still want the workshop to go on. Therefore, this revised version of the Novel Writing Workshop is now maintained by [Annie]. Direct your questions and comments to her.
A big part of writing is getting peer advice, so please do read what others have written, comment, and rate. This will not only benefit them, giving them ideas and feedback, but it will also benefit you as they will be more likely to respond with warm fuzzies, and, well, cold pricklies sometimes too.


Participants of the Old Novel Writing Workshop
New participants welcome at all times!
All participants please join the forum <joinforum:34:NWW> (Novel Writing Workshop)

- [Veltzeh] - 39.Novel Writing Workshop
- [Annie] - 415.Books in Progress.Novel Writing Workshop
- [Ash] - 102.Novel Writing Workshop


Create a writings page called "Novel Writing Workshop" specifically for all of the activities and work completed in the workshop. This will make it easier for fellow participants to interact with you and your writings.
Also please join the forum "Novel Writing Workshop" by clicking on the following: <joinforum:34:NWW> (Novel Writing Workshop). We will have various discussions, activities, and mutual sharing in this forum.
1. Be courteous on this page, the Novel Writing Workshop homepage.
2. When commenting on and rating fellow participants' writing, be kind and courteous. A good rule of thumb is equal parts compliment and criticism. Remember that this is constructive criticism The following format is generally acceptable for comments:
I really like your _____ (i.e. narrator)/your use of _____ (i.e. white space).
You might try to ____ (i.e. cut down on adverbs)/do more of ____ (i.e. that thing you did in paragraph three that just blew me away).
3. Place a rating next to your writings link under Participants if your novel contains blatant sexuality, violence, or other sensitive content.

The Workshop

You can expect updates from me at least every couple months.

This is a badge participants can put in their houses.
Thanks to [pixie_shimmer] for making it. Hopefully soon to come will be a "winner" badge for those of you who complete the novel you worked on in this workshop. Feel free to volunteer your badge-making skills and tell [Annie] you'd like to make it.

2006-04-20 [RiddleRose]: awww... i know the feeling... XD

2006-04-30 [Marten]: I'd like to finish a novel for once... *sigh* :P

2006-04-30 [~*Lonely Wanderer*~]: im trying to so i need all the help i can get :D

2006-06-26 [Nell]: Hellooo? 0.0 RiverStar is away I guess.

2006-07-10 [Veltzeh]: Prod prod?

2006-09-04 [Nell]: Sorry for the false alarm guys, I just had to rename a page.

Riverstar is still missing: gone for 111 days so far. We miss you Star. Come back to us.

2006-09-21 [RiverStar]: Guys I am so sorry I left. Had to disappear to work out stuff in my offline life. I am back now, but it might take me awhile to get back into the swing of things. I missed you all.

2006-09-22 [Veltzeh]: Yay! It's okay, the main thing is that you are back :D

2006-09-25 [Nell]: *HUGS YOU* YAY! WritersCo can now get swinging, RiverStar has arrived!!!

2007-06-27 [Athilea]: How would I be able to join with this? I'm currently working on rewritting ALL of my short stories to make them sound better, as well as furthering the ideas for my novels.

2007-06-27 [Veltzeh]: Well, you just need to sign up your name and to go through the parts. This thing's stalled though, it's been over a year since the last part was added... Does anyone know how to contact RiverStar?

2007-06-29 [Athilea]: Ahh, I see. Thank you.

2010-12-10 [Annie]: [RiverStar] seems to be permanently gone (1996 days inactive), does anyone want to take this over? I think it's a great concept...I'd be sad to see it gone forever.

2010-12-10 [Veltzeh]: I'd still like to take part, but I have no clue how to run it, so I can't take over.

2011-01-27 [Ash]: I think Annie should run it, but if you don't want to I'll volunteer.
