usa sat

a couple years from now, if and when someone asks we what I learned in Math, Science, History or English from high school, I would probably say “I don’t know, but I know I got an A.”
That’s how screwed up school is nowadays, as long as you ace or pass the class and you get high test scores to make your school look good to get more funding, they won’t care about what you learn or how you’ll apply it.

We are continuing our series of writing workshops this Saturday in the Slack channel! 

This week’s topic will be Smut, hosted by @roseforthethorns

This Saturday at 11am EST, we invite everyone to come together and learn more about sexy writing, whether you’re someone who has never written a sex scene but would like to learn, or you’re a veteran ‘sexpert’ who can share some tips, or anyone in between! 

How it will work:

Your host has organized some discussion topics and activities, including the chance to get immediate feedback on your writing–you can write a new scene, or you can bring up to 500 words that you’d like to workshop. There will also be plenty of opportunities to ask all of your sex-writing-related questions! 

It will be primarily hosted in the writer’s corner on our Slack channel (message @spiritofcamelot or @castillon02 or anyone else on slack if you need an invite). 

When is it?

We will start at 11am eastern time (full time conversions below the cut) and we estimate it might last two hours. Jump in any time though.

What if I can’t make it?

The materials from each lesson will be made available to view the next day and you are welcome to ask questions anytime on slack.

We hope you will find this useful and maybe even a bit of fun. We have some other topics planned and are very excited about how this will go. Hope to see you there!

Your leaders/hosts each week have organized some writing activities, chances to get feedback from more experienced writers, and plenty of opportunities to ask questions! 

It will be primarily hosted in the writer’s corner on our Slack channel (message @spirtofcamelot or @castillon02 or anyone else on slack if you need an invite) but there will be resources on google drive that work like a whiteboard for the class. 

When is it?

What if I can’t make it?

For those of us who are ahead in time zones, eg NZ, does that mean that we can literally go purchase Rep tomorrow or do we have to wait till it’s the 10th in the usa (which is sat for us)

Welcome to a special NaNoWriMo write/draw/cry. These sessions are open to everyone to brainstorm ideas, cheerlead, do sprints together, and generally encourage lots of creativity! (And cry about how your novel is going now that we are just past halfway.) Lurkers are welcome ^ ^

This Saturday, come join us over in the chat at the Bond fandom Slack. Slack requires an email invite, so if you need one of those, hit up @castillon02, @ao3-brihna, or @spiritofcamelot for an invite!

The Cafe Mods will be hosting a chat with assorted prompts, tea, and some good old-fashioned brainstorming! @castillon02 and @spiritofcamelot will be hanging around in the chat room starting at 11AM EST until we get caught up on our word counts! Or until we fall asleep on our keys. Whichever comes first.

Feel free to pop along anytime during the day and join in! No novel writing required.

anonymous asked:

I have two suggestions so feel free to pick either one. First, I loved FINAVGLC's ending, but I kinda sad that the days Papyrus was out got skimmed down (understandable given the size) since that seemed to be the moment of recollection after so much shit. If you're not sick of the story, any moment from one of those three days would be good. It could be sad or it could be silly, your choice. If you are sick of it, the other suggestion is any scene from your own original story if you have one.

Possibly not what you had in mind, but the notion stuck to me. :V
