This is the place for anybody who loves writing stories! Ask in the comment section if you want to be curator. You can add all story/book related projects.
Comment and I'll add you as a curator. I'll promote people who are active. :)

~ WRITING SPRINTS ~
Writing sprints will be held periodically. (Any curator can hold one, anybody can participate.) A curator will give a time limit, and if you would like to participate, write down the number of words you have before, then set a timer and write until the time is up. Then see how many words you wrote and post it in reply to the comment.
(To calculate the number of words, subtract your starting number from your current number.)
You can write anything you want- short stories, songs, work on a novel, even a diary entry. You don't have to share what you wrote, just word count. The goal is to try and get words down on paper. You can worry about editing and all that jazz later. :)
Assume you aren't allowed to stack sprints unless the sprint creator specifies that you may. Stacking a sprint is when you do the sprint multiple times, then submit your best score.
~ COLLAB STORY CHAINS ~
Now we have collaborative story chains here! (csc) (I'm just going to call them that because I don't know what they're really called if they have an official name.) If you're a curator, you can start one of these anytime. If you're not, just ask in the comments and Candy or I will add you whenever we get a chance.
To start one, just comment the first part of your story. Then, copy and paste this form into a reply and fill it out.
//POV//TIME//PLACE//PLOT IDEAS//STORY OR ROLEPLAY
POV stands for point of view. That's whether people should use he/she, I/me, or you. I/me is first person, you is second person, and he/she is third person. Plot ideas is where you give people ideas on what to write about, although people don't have to do what's listed. Try to give many! Story / roleplay basically means if your story will have separate characters and a more complex plot. If it is a roleplay, please be kind and do not use other's characters.
Don't forget to put a warning if a song contains mature language and don't post it at all if there's anything worse than that. Always use the Scratch youtube links or a Scratch project if possible.
Want to listen to that awesome song that's been stuck in your head but don't want to ruin the mood of your latest story? That story might not get written, but another brilliant one will! Or your newest writing piece may become the chapter you need so much in your fantastic new novel!
Pick a song, any song, or join another Lyric Writing comment chain and listen to the chosen song. Then write your story/chapter/journal/anything else with as many lyrics as possible and the same mood as the song. The participants vote on whose is the best (don't vote for yourself!) or select a judge who did not participate together if there are 3 or less people. The winner starts a new comment chain and uses their fantabulous writing skills to write something even more superb.
~ Collaboration Project Chain Writing ~
This is similar to Collaboration Story Chains, but in a project and a little different.
This is if you want to write a book with other scratchers! Share a project with the information about your book such as Genre, Storyline, Characters, and other things. If someone is interested in your story plot, they could remix and add a chapter to it. Someone else could remix the remix of your project, and so on and so on. There will be examples in this studio.
