Procedures for Storyline work

Step 1:
First Prove to us that you are a good writer!
Write a short story on your character, or a totally fictional character, from Eternal Lands. This story should be posted in this forum, and once approved by myself, you can continue with the steps down below.
**If you want your story to be considered please put somewhere in your post a message like "I'm submitting this test story for consideration for the team"


Step 2:
-Choose from the list of stories we need written (a list will be posted eventually)
OR
-Submit an idea for a story not on the list for approval. You may do this by creating a new post. Note, you can submit ideas even if you aren't a writer. If it's a good idea someone else might take it up and write about it.

Step 3:
-Write a short summary paragraph and/or outline.
-Submit for approval.
-When this is approved your name will be posted by the story in the story list as you writing it, so others won't take the story.

Step 4:
-Write a Rough Draft
-Submit for approval

Step 5:
-Write final copy

Step 6:

-Final copy should be proof read, edited, and any final changes will be made.


Notes:
We want to stress quality over quantity!
-These procedures are aimed to create a more organize and structured work environment. The stories we write should be well thought out and planned before writing them.
-The list of stories will be planned out and developed by the Story Development Team. The list can contain a simple theme of a story that can be written, or it can be a detailed outline that the writers should follow when writing the content of the story.
-We can have short stories, long stories, even novels! The length in the end doesn't matter(unless something is planned specifically to be a short story, etc.), what matters is the QUALITY, that it's a good story!
-All new authors should start out with writing only short stories, to prove they can write well.
