Let me know if a thread like this exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

I wanted to make another group on here but I wanted to make the second one a story group. Is this a good idea? My other group isn't doing too well and I thought I can make a new better one. I'm still going to post things on my other group. I just want to know if it's a good idea.

I didn't know where this forum would go. So Loreen you can put it in the right place.

This seems like something you should probably try to address internally with your group's members. An external thread would probably serve you best by fulfilling the purpose of either displaying your works or recruiting people.

Well, I mean, this could be a recruiting thread if the purpose and nature of the new group were more explicitly and specifically fleshed out in the OP. It's not a meaningless thread. I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade.

It was my first time creating a group and I didn't know what I was doing. But the second group will just be a story.

Would you be collectively authoring a story, acting one out through roleplay, composing independently written stories that you then present to one another and discuss, what's a story group?

It goes like this. I write a paragraph then the next person writes a paragraph on what happens next. If my paragraph is about a girl learning that she is a fairy, then the next paragraph will be what the girl does next. And it goes on and on creating a story.

That is how I want my story group to be. But I like your ideas.

Yay, I'm helping!

Another piece of information you should include in your recruiting effort is a note about the relative skill level required for participation. Based on this description you're creating a group where no prior experience or education is necessary, so it's worth noting that your group will be open to pretty much everyone.

Also, is that all the group does, or will there be other things? For example, you might practice editing and proofreading on samples you find online or that you compose for one another. You might discuss ways to improve your research methods and share good sources of information in a common pool. You might collectively agree upon an established work or set of works to read and then discuss in order to determine the strengths and weaknesses of various authors' styles.

Well, we not only write stories but we give feedback and help each other with our writing.

So you are going to be practicing proofreading, editing, research, and all that, but only in the context of the collective writing exercise you've described. Will those roles be assigned and rotated with each increment, or will everyone be an editor, proofreader, fact checker, and so on every time? Walk us through a round of storytelling from start to finish, including the feedback and assistance phase.
