I'm totally super-jealous of all the crazy good artists in FirePowered, and I'm sure other people feel similarly, so I thought we should have a thread for those people whose talents lie in the written word.
 
Short prose or poetry (or essays or whatever) are probably the best thing to post here. I don't think we need a length limit: let's just say if that if your piece is longer that 600 words, you should consider posting an excerpt instead.
 
The same rules apply as in the FP Art Thread:

  1. Please only post your work. Plagiarism may result in warning points.
  2. When you do post your work, please spoiler it.
  3. Hate is not welcome. Please only provide constructive criticism.
    1. If someone indicates that they do not want their work critiqued, please listen to them
  4. This thread is not for requests or writing prompts.
  5. All work is welcome! This includes (but is not limited to):
  • Poetry
  • Short stories
  • Flash fiction
  • Personal essays
  • Other things

I guess since I started this, I should kick it off. This is the first thing I've written in a while, and I haven't even done basic editing on it, so....

This is awesome. I was actually considering posting my essay on the forums to see if you guys could check it, now I have a way to do that. :)

I wrote this the other day very last-minute for an English project. I think it turned out rather well, considering how quickly I wrote it.

Interestingly, it began as a stupid, humorous poem about articles, and quickly evolved into an interpretation of The Old Man and the Sea. ._.

So I wrote this last year and got a great response from it, even though I think it could definitely use some improvement, so I might as well share it here  :phappy: Can't really do an excerpt because it's a story. It'll ruin the experience.

So WARNING, almost 2000 words 

 

Spoiler:

 

And if you all like it I can maybe post some more shorter stuff like poetry or other stores/essays.

Ahhhh I love this!!  Awesome idea!  :phappy2:

 

@Savage Your story is so good!  You paced it really well.

 

I need to practice writing short stories.  All my ideas tend to turn into novels.  Maybe this thread will help inspire me to write more.   :psmile:

Anything half-decent I've written recently was lost when I lost my usb flash drive, including a book I was working on for Nanowrimo :( I'm trying to see if I can find a printed version or something, but it might just all be gone.

@Esper I'm the same way. I wouldn't have posted this if @perplexingPariah hadn't bugged me about it late at night. I really don't like sharing anything I write because I'm so self-conscious about it. 

 

If it helps you, post it the second you write the last word. That way if it's terrible you can blame it on your lack of editing. I haven't actually looked at what I posted since I wrote it because I'm afraid it's terrible  :pno2:

@Esper is a really good writer and he should post his wonderful writings here for all to see.

 

I would like to share something, when or if I have something worth sharing  :pno:

Here's a couple of poems I wrote about drugs. Since I don't exactly do drugs, they're not exactly very good... but hey, at least the top one's slightly funny. lol
