So… I have around 4,2 k words for the upcoming "Under the Sea" issue that need betaing. Is anyone interested in helping me with that?
English is not my mother tongue so there's likely awkward phrasing, too long sentences, misplaced comas and other things that only make sense in my head.
Also, my characters are supposed to be from England so if someone could point any and all americanisms so I can clear them off, I'd be grateful.
Thanks in advance. :-)
I am currently working on starting a voice drama group where members can bring stories to life (or at least to the nearest mp3 player, heh). I'm not sure if people are familiar with the concept but the idea stemmed from Japanese voice acting/drama CD. Amateur voice drama groups are hugely popular in China and there are many amateur groups who do excellent productions there; I hope to bring the same concept to the western world. Shousetsu features some amazing authors who I would be very interested in collaborating with. Thank you for your time!
FIRST BL/GL ENGLISH DRAMA GROUP
Do you have an interest in voice acting? Do you enjoy listening to audiobooks or radio dramas? Are you interested in being part of the first English gay themed drama group?
We are looking for male and female voice actors! Other open positions include sound post production, script writer, graphics artist, cover singer, and casting director. The final products will be freely distributed and there will be no financial compensation. Please send me an ask if you are interested in applying.
I couldn't find an answer to this in the main comm admin posts. I have an account on AO3 and I'd like to put my SSBB stories up there, which I gather from the AO3 TOS is acceptable. I see there is also a SSBB collection on AO3, but it obviously doesn't have every story in it. Am I right in thinking this is situation where people who've uploaded their stories to AO3 can add them to the collection, rather than a mirror of the full content? Is there any validation/permission needed to verify that a story did appear in an issue of SSBB etc?
I ended up totally running out of time for my October story and found myself thinking "Oh well, I'll just finish it later and submit it in December." I did this last year too, which has got me thinking: is it just me? Anyone else use December as a backup for stories you might not finish in time? XD Or do you even just hang on to something and submit it for another theme that it also happens to fit into?
Guh, I've been craving a discussion about SSBB ever since I signed up, so here goes nothing. :D
So this is my first time writing something for SSBB (well, second technically, though I didn't actually submit what I wrote last time). I saw a few others in the sign up thread mention it was their first time too, so I thought I'd make a post about it. I, for one, am as nervous a squirrel in a nutcracker factory. The quality of writing here is just oh so very good and it's all a little intimidating. I'm going to be rereading and rereading my story 'til my eyes bleed before I dare to send it along for inspection.
I also caught myself wondering if there's such a thing as too much porn at one point, which was worrying.
Anyway, are you a first-time SSBB writer? Are you nervous? Excited? Nearly finished your story already? Not started yet?
And for the veterans, how did you feel when you submitted your first story? Any advice for newblets such as myself? Care to offer your preferences in regards to porn/plot ratios? :D
