Welcome to /s/! Baja Bronze Board owner 08/08/2021 (Sun) 16:50:31 Id: 4ac433 No. 1 [Reply]
This board is dedicated to collaboratively spinning yarns - that is, telling /s/tories to and with your fellow anons. Every thread is a story waiting for you to tell it, and the OP is the primary author. The OP decides just how much input, if any, other anons may have in their story; However, the best of them will happily include others in the creative process. (You) can tell stories in text, images, audio, video, or some combination of them all. The use of drawfaggotry and webmfaggotry are strongly encouraged! To good writefags, I say welcome to the board; I hope you write many compelling tales. To those who know or believe that they are bad writefags, take /s/ as an opportunity to improve in the furnace of imageboard culture. My advice to all aspiring writefags as BO and a recovering writelet myself is this: Read lots of books/scripts by good authors/screenwriters, and PRACTICE. Write something no matter how bad it is, get it critiqued by somebody, and then keep writing. Even people with no writing experience can provide valuable insight. There are only 3 rules on this board (sans global rules): 1. Be Original This does not mean you can’t put a unique spin on an already existing story; It means you can’t copy-paste something and pretend you wrote it. 2. Romance > Smut /s/ is a SFW board. Romance is allowed and even encouraged if you’re capable of writing it, but this is not the place for smut. If you can't tell the difference between the two, don't try to write it at all. 3. Dice == No Dice Dice rolling is fun and can make for good stories, but so can good storytelling all on its own. I leave it to the discretion of the OPs, just don't use it as a crutch.

Writing Prompt Thread Anonymous 08/10/2021 (Tue) 07:54:12 Id: 9b3548 No. 70 [Reply]
Are you a writelet with no creativity? Are you a writefag that wants to compose something short and sweet? You've found the right thread. Use this website (or any other like it) to pick a writing prompt at random: https://thestoryshack.com/tools/writing-prompt-generator/ Follow the generated prompt and post what you create for critique and perhaps compliments. Nobody worth a hoot cares if it's terrible; what matters is that (you) write it. Proficiency in anything worth doing requires practice, anons. If you prefer, (you) may also write a prompt for your personal use or for other anons to take a crack at. Remember to have fun!

Early star explorers. They land a bunch of supplies in one central area, and then use lightweight balloons to travel. Maybe rival explorers come to blows somehow, and we have scifi macguyver weapons launched from airships other airships, cobbled together from multiple explorer model balloons. Could be fun. Natural progression of landing, setting up, hopes of the future, actual exploring, drama, dramatic retreat, coming up with war designs, mega battle, call him victorious with awesome planet and maybe ancient ruins or some artefact maybe. Enough story beats for about idk what is that 6?, 10? Chapters.
>>189 Well damn, that's definitely not a short story prompt, but it's definitely something worth writing.
>>190 If you wanted to make >>189 a short story one could just focus on one of the mini skirmishes and imply other ones. Or you could treat it like an anthology of tales from this alternate world.

Op says tell me stories
Once upon a time lived a man in a small town. Then he was eaten by hungry townfolk. The end.

Have a question about where to begin or what story to create on /s/? Want to call the BO a prancing lala homo in a tutu? This is the place for it. FAQ Q: "Howto tripcode?" A: To use a secure tripcode, add ## in your name and a password. Q: "Howto grammar?" A: You can use https://www.englishgrammar101.com/ to learn proper grammar, or you can use grammar correction software like https://www.grammarly.com/ For information on text tags and more, please refer to: https://8chan.moe/.static/pages/posting.html

/s/ Banner Thread Baja Bronze Board owner 08/08/2021 (Sun) 17:10:35 Id: c4e89c No. 6 [Reply]
Want to flex your creative muscles without becoming a /s/toryteller just yet? Create a banner for the board! Remember that traditional banner sizing is 300x100. Good ideas for banners include writing cliches, famous authors/screenwriters/playwrights, quotes from the works of said famous folks, etc.

This is the designated effortposting thread for all OC memes. Memes are just another form of storytelling, after all! Proven reposts and pornographic memes will be deleted. Have fun!
