So, folks. What does everyone want to do with this dead community?My personal vote is that we use it as a group writing journal. I could put paid time here, and everyone could just post their weekly/monthly/yearly writing. Of any kind. Just a place to...store it and make it pretty.Or we could try to keep going with the contest idea.Or...we could just dissolve the community entirely, and have it sit around for a while.Thoughts, anyone?
Echo of the Muse is a community that strives to motivate authors (primarily of original fiction) into more productive and higher quality writing, by shared challenges and discussions. This site is eventually going to partnered with a portal hosted on aetherea.net consisting of links to high-quality web-published fiction. We accept all sorts of authors, and the themes we're looking for can best be described as "vivid", "thought-provoking", and "dark." This community is open to all, and can be used to post and link to your writing. There will be weekly and monthly challenges, open to all members, based on a certain theme. These challenges can (unless specified) be answered with a story set in this world, an alternate universe of your own making, or an alternate universe borrowed from another for inspiration. Please feel free to plug out this community, although we're striving for a small, "writer's group" feel rather than something huge and intimidating.Welcome to Echo of the Muse -- a writing community for the writer who doesn't write.
