Quill and Ink Overview

Post by Prof. Amy Lupin » Sat Oct 03, 2015 1:56 pm

Calling all aspiring writers!

The Quill and Ink section is centred around writing, and topics can range from writing techniques and/or styles, where you find your inspiration, authors you hope to emulate, NaNoWrimo (and variations thereof) to your favourite stories to write — and anything and everything in between!

We’ll also be having writing prompts every month and a more relaxed, quirky wordcrawl every two, so look out for those! If you complete at least seven of them over the course of the year, you’ll get a shiny Quill and Ink Award. You'll also receive 20 beans per completed prompt and crawl.

If you write poetry, stories or fanfiction or would like to give them a go, this is also the place for that. Check out the stickied 'sharing spaces', made for just that purpose!

Feel free to come up with your own prompts to help inspire others — and post your own discussions too!

Please keep anything you do share HOL-appropriate (if you're unsure, ask a Book Club staffer to glance over it for you before posting!). It is always a good idea to proof read your post for spelling and grammatical errors too as they can make it difficult for people to enjoy what you've created.

Even if you don’t write much, you’re still more than welcome to join in and give it a try. As Mark Twain puts it, “Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words”. ;)
