|The Writers' Nest
at Albatros Bits
If you're looking for something to read, or if you're looking for a place to post your own work and receive courteous, constructive feedback from the Nest's active creative writing community, then you've come to the right place: this is The Writers' Nest at Albatros Bits, a World of Warcraft fan-fiction community.
If you're looking for something to read, there are several impressive running sagas and a number of shorter entries floating around in the Writers' Nest forum. (If you read through something, you should toss up a post letting the author know what you think!) If you're looking for a complete work rather than a work in progress, you should head over to the Manuscripts forum, where short stories or sagas that have been completed are stored for posterity.
New writers are always welcomed! While we're a community of Warcraft fanfic, writing of any kind is welcome. (Please stay within the bounds of decency and courtesy, however.) You can introduce us to your work by clicking here. A short paragraph introducing yourself is customary. If you post the first chapter of an ongoing story, you should bear in mind that the vast majority of such posts are greeted with little more than a hello and a (sincere) hope for more, so don't be heart-broken if folks don't get really into your story for a few chapters. Most importantly, this is a writing community, so you should expect criticism.
New critics are also welcome. Criticism should be considerate and constructive at all times: rank negativity is not useful and will not be allowed! Bear in mind that all criticism is the expression of an opinion, and that there are few if any absolutes in art. Also bear in mind that all writers are only human, and that too much criticism with no positive feedback rankles the soul.
So dive in, read, write, criticize and enjoy: Welcome to The Writers' Nest!
