To my lovely writing partners, please bear with my slow responses! I just got engaged and now I'm headed across the Atlantic for a couple weeks. I promise I haven't forgotten you!

I disagree. Your personal preference for one writer over another, does not change the fact that both may be good at what they do. Skill is not subjective.

Perhaps the answer is some conglomeration: A good writer is someone who can artfully combine proficient use of the English language with ideas that make the reader think or feel.

Bio

I think I was probably a cat in another lifetime. I don't like noise, I don't like bright lights, and I don't even particularly like people, though there are one or two exceptions to that last one. What I do like are warm places, good books, hot drinks, and pleasant conundrums, you know the sort that might occupy a longish drive with interesting thinking. Antepenultimately, I enjoy words of a sesquipedalian nature, though only as a veridical aesthete; I don’t think these words have much of a place in the writing I’ll be doing on this forum. They mess with the flow of the prose if you catch my meaning. Supereminently, I’ll write with anyone that has a strong voice and a good grasp of the English language, and while I won't promise not to bite, I will swear I've had all my shots, so pm me if you've got any clever ideas or inchoate notions.

I'm very interested!
Looking for writers, storytellers, wordsmiths, and scribblers. The harpy is open to roleplay once more.
Can't find partners.
Honestly, I was leaning towards the Spirit category. I have a predilection for thinking up mythologies and religions. I do agree that magic is most interesting when it follows some form of logic, though.
I'm interested in this, especially in the Spirits or Magic coGM categories. We would also have characters, right?
Greetings, writers.

I'm looking to catch a few partners for collaborative-style roleplays, using my ideas and preferences as bait. So read on, and if what you see tickles your fancy, send me a PM or email haplessharpy@gmail.com.

About Me

1. I prefer to roleplay in Google Docs. Play-by-post is a wonderful invention. It got me into roleplay. It's why we're here. Still, it has some major draw backs. Writing in a format both writers can edit fully is more creative, more collaborative. It allows the characters to respond instantly to every action, allows for a faster, more natural play, and removes the question of post size.

2. I write well. Not on a best seller/prize winning sort of level, but I take creative pride in the words I type here, not just the plots and characters. I'd like a partner who cares about this too. This is absolutely the most important point here.

3. I play female characters. Yes, I know. So does everyone else. All I really need though is to find one or two of you that don't mind humoring me on this point.

4. Romance is MxF only. I mean no disrespect to those of you with other preferences, this is just what I like.

5. A good story contains a mix of light and darkness, is often emotionally wrenching, and doesn't always work out for our characters. This can be difficult for those of you who are attached to your characters, or worse those of you who insert yourself into every story, but I'm not looking for happy endings. I'm looking for a compelling story that neither of us will forget anytime soon.

Tentatively interested. For more fun multiverse-saving stories, check out Neil Gaiman's Interworld Trilogy. This reminds me a lot of that series, except in Interworld all of the superheroes are actually the same person or rather different versions of the same person each from a different universe within the multiverse.
New plots and things.
