The Writer's Block: What is it?

The intent of The Writer's Block is not to take you through a series of exercises to improve your ability to construct a sentence, paragraph, or to write a short story or novel. While our hope is that it WILL improve your writing skills, the intent is to focus on writing for PBP games; not writing the great Novel. There are plenty of places and lesson plans out there to help you improve your thesis, short story, screenplay, or novel. This place is designed to focus on writing a good post.

That said, good grammar, sentence structure, and the ability to write a coherent thought into a sentence ARE important. We will likely throw around words like simile and metaphor, and you will be expected to understand (by the end of the lessons) the difference between a first person view, and a third person view. You might accidentally stumble across a discussion of verb choices, and tenses. But that isn't our main focus.

We hope that when you are done with these lessons, you will find some tools, tips or tricks that you can use repeatedly to improve your common, average, everyday gaming post, and bring it up a level or two, for your enjoyment, and the enjoyment of others in the game.
