Hello and welcome to
This is the coziest corner of Scratch; a little nook of books! Lose yourself in the pages and let your imagination get swept away...
Whether you're a #1 New York Times bestselling author or a kid who wants to get their work known,
THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!
Imagine sitting down, curling up with a nice pile of thick books and just losing yourself in their pages...
And then turning to your computer/notebook and spending a few hours pouring out your imagination onto the blank pages.
Meet the managers:
Just ask! We'll invite you!
Project types: Anything writing related: stories/novels, self-written songs, poems, picture books, writing tips, and more!
Basically, it must meet these guidelines:
- Completely original (inspired is ok! So is fan-fic)
- CREATIVE! (No non-fiction, unless it is a 'story' of some sort)
- Your own! Only add projects with peoples' permission—don't just go around adding random people's projects!
Do you want to become a manager? (manager requirements)
Be super-helpful around the studio, and one of the managers will ask you if you want to be a manager. Say yes, and you're a manager! (Just basically respond to comments/questions and stuff like that ;D) Also, it helps if you befriend one of us; if we know you're trustworthy, we'll most likely promote you!
• Invite anyone who wants to join
• Promote anyone who meets the requirements to be promoted.
• Don't drastically change the description! (You can change and add quotes and tips and suggestions and stuff! (etc.))
Thanks to @Creativegirl9 we now have "Story Requests!" Just comment in the comments a request for a short story, and someone will hopefully see it and respond!
Writing tips (max. 2; delete & replace!):
@Writing_Forever: When it's your first draft, JUST WRITE! Save your inner editor for later; you can't edit something that doesn't exist! Leave the editor behind, and just WRITE!!
@Inksplatter: Don't focus on rereading your first draft while you're writing it; just get on with the job that needs completing. Wait until a day or two after you've finished to read it with a fresh pair of eyes.

Inspiring Quotes (max. 2):
"You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children."
― Madeleine L'Engle
"Why is it so hard to write? Well you're somehow organizing thousands of tiny letters into patterns that make sense and convey thousands of emotions and actions and you're holding an entire world full of people in your head as well as people who you have to make feel real and are written responsibly all represented by these tiny words."

Writing Prompts (maximum 3):
Turn a feeling (anger, excitement, etc.) into a character and write about their experiences.
Imagine your best friend loses all memories of you. How do you react? Do you build new memories with them, or abandon them in the hopes of them never remembering you again? What would you do to help them regain their memories, or at least making new ones?
Describe what goes on in your head. Is it a messy whirlwind of thoughts? Or is it dead calm, with ripples every now and then? Is it organized neatly like books on a shelf?
