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.
Sometimes the challenge is a competition. Feel free to volunteer to host the next one as not all of us have time to host one. Please let the managers know if you're interested <3

Meet the managers:
Just ask! We'll invite you!
What projects go here?
- Anything writing related: stories, original songs, poems, writing tips, and more!
- 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?
Please don't ask! Be very active around the studio (answer questions and reply to comments), and one of the managers will ask you if you want to be a manager. Say yes, and you're a manager!
• Invite anyone who wants to join
• Don't drastically change the description! (You can change and add quotes, tips and suggestions, 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):
@InspireBookz : I have a tip for writing that I think everyone should know about, and that's how to cure writer's block. When you write, always add in elements of strength but also weakness. Put a part of yourself into your characters, for instance, I have a fear of heights so by placing this trait in someone, I will feel compelled to describe this fear and invoke emotions in your readers. (6/??)
@Hopeful_Author: Listen to music that fits the mood of the scene. It can help with Writer's Block as well! (8/15)
