Welcome to the Writers World of Scratch! We are Scratchers who enjoy sharing our songs, poems, novels, short stories, and more with the world!
Give us new QOTWs, Writing Prompts, Writing Tips, and Author and Book Recommendations!
Do you like to write romances? (historical, fantasy, real, fairy tale, etc) Why or why not?
Just ask to join, and we'll add you! Please only add your writing. If you have a tutorial on writing, that may also be added. I will make a point to try to read it!
We are considering adding an art section. If you would like to add this feature, go ahead and vote yes or no!

WRITER OF THE WEEK: (WOW)
STORY OF THE WEEK: (SOW)
~ My Hero, Said the Prince
✏ WRITING TIP OF THE WEEK:
- Show, don't tell!
"When his mother slapped the light switch, Rob dove under the covers. He swore he could hear things coming after him, creeping, crawling."
- NOT -
"The lights turned out, and Rob heard something coming towards him."
✏ WRITING TIPS:
- If you can't imagine yourself in the story, then add more detail!
- Pretend you are the character you are writing about. If you can't, use more description. Unless they aren't important.
- I often don't start with knowing what will happen in the middle, just the start and the last sentence or two. If you get stuck in the middle, brainstorm the last chapter, and see where you're headed -- the middle has to get you there! Remember, after you've written the middle, the end may change to fit the middle -- don't be afraid to change it no matter how much you like it! I always have a document full of beginnings, middles, and ends that I had to rework to fit the story, in case I want to use one later. ( @mistyhorse)
