Well here it is, the first entry, man this is super intimidating, so I'm gonna make it super short and as sweet as I can make it ya' dig?
This is the Albany Creative Writing Club blog/community/web thingy-ma-bob (super technical language watchout)
This is here for everybody to post their own writing, post some prompts and all that good stuff... there's a set of "tags" that I put in here that are pretty gosh darn fun cause it makes organizing this stuff really easy
there is :

club mechanics : this is to post basic and not so basic club related activities (pizza, parties, meeting times, places, all that super cool stuff)

submissions: this is where you post something (prompt or non-prompt related) that you wrote that you think is really neat, the cool thing is once it's posted people can comment on individual entries and say "hey I really liked it!" and it's totally anonymous so that's cool.. remember people though, constructive criticism is useful while flaming is just bad form as a person we're all here for a specific reason and it's not to be captain bringdown and the trash talk brigade

suggestions: this is where we can say "hey, it'd be really cool if..." community design ideas, moving this blog elsewhere if it pleases you, whatever.. very cool stuff though...

prompts: so let's say you're walking around the campus and suddenly you're completely convinced the huge tower coming out of the fountain reflecting pool is really an alien spaceship, maybe you want other people to write reflecting pool related fiction, maybe you just read some statement that is wild, post it here and see if it gets some juices flowing for other writers...

never-ending-story-: ok, this one takes a little explainin' but it get's really cool especially if we have a good amount of people comin' and going around here... it's killer neat, one person starts off some story, a paragraph or two, page or 4 whatever, write till you're tired or think you left it at a good jumping point for someone else, sit back, let someone work on the story, see where the characters go... this is REALLY cool once it gets involved because you are constantly surprised where a story can go when it's made open to all writers...

ok that's about as far as this can go for now, but hopefully some people will join up, and some serious writing will happen...

so when you enter something just drop one of these handy dandy tags into the entry thingy and it should work well.. there's clients for updating your own journals/updating in here that makes it not too difficult need any help hit me an email @ angel213@nycap.rr.com

here's the links to each tag so you can read just the sections you want when you want, bookmark 'em:

THIS IS FANTASTIC...I hope others agree...when I hit the link for never ending story the screen blared ERROR, so maybe that is what the first never ending story should be titled :ERROR: or not. :KNOT:

all is well now, it seems emptiness is an error 'round these parts.. but at least it's all working.. it's going to be far easier for most to just click on those links and then "update" their journal putting in the tag "never-ending-story-" or whichever suits best to keep tabs on the blog... i highly suggest a client is downloaded (from the livejournal front page) so you can have a browser open to the tag category and write at the same time without TOO much problems...
HURRAH indeed!
