It’s been a good few weeks now since I first launched the poll but I’m going to get the beginners group I’ve had in mind up and running now. Time will tell if it turns out to be a flop or not, fingers crossed all goes well.
To those of you who expressed interest or anyone else who might have been considering writing a story of their own but are nervous about coding or putting their thoughts into words, I thought this could be the thread for you.
So I wanted to set out some initial basic goals that we could achieve together.
A weekly word count, we’ll keep it low at first then increase the goal post as people find their feet and get to grips with coding and writing.
The discussion of ideas for our stories and sharing tips for writing.
Coding advice as we go, so we can help each other understand elements of it as we all learn. I’ve also had some pros (If they don’t mind me calling them that) offer to help which is awesome.
We would all aim to have a very short story complete within a time frame, most likely a month just to get into the hang of things. I didn’t want to set a concrete theme, just allow people the opportunity to write what they like, but it could be something we explore as a group.
Decided to create a discord server (never done that before) so that we can use it to share thoughts there too, might make it feel more official, like a proper group as well.
I also originally had the idea for a weekly meeting, but that might be too ambitious, and the time zones are also a factor. Could be something we incorporate later to some extent if people would like to see it.
Ok, not really a lot in the way of info on this topic at the moment, I’ll most likely update it or add later posts if this takes off.
Here’s the link to the discord server if anyone fancies joining, big thanks to @Jackpot1776 for helping me set it up!
