Dear girls and guys,

one day I had a funny idea. I thought it would be great to write a book. But I didn't want to write it by myself. I just wanted to start the story and then continue with hundreds of other authors. You can lead the story to wherever you want to!

My target is to provide the finished book completely free as ebook.

I found this forum so I decided to ask you guys, if you want to help me writing that book. I don't speak English natively as I'm German, but I hope that you'll correct my misspellings and maybe also the grammar, if there's something wrong.

You just have to register... it's completely free! I use this register mechansim, because I don't want anonymous people deleting and changing the text.

mastixmc.de*slash*wiki*slash*index.php5?title=Main_Page

If we finish that book, your name will be printed in that book. I don't want to earn any money, so I also don't want to spend it. That's why I decided to put the Wiki into a subdirectory on my momentarily unused domain.

mastixmc.de*slash*wiki

We can of course also discuss the book within this thread. I'm sorry that I want to post Links... but I couldn't wait 10 days until posting them. :)

P.S.: Dear Admins: If this posting is wrong, feel free to move. :)

Bummer! I really hoped that some English speaking people could help me.

Is it the registration that keeps you from adding or correcting some lines?

I removed it, so you can edit even if you are not logged in.

Why don't you post an actual link to the page instead of forcing us to type it in, also, i would suggest re-posting this over in the fluff forum, we're much more likely to actually go there and help out if we see it there, i know for a fact that several people don't even look at these forums.

Hi,

the problem is that I'm currently not allowed to post links. :(

I need to be registered more than 10 days.

Well give it a couple of days and then head over the fluff forum. I'm sure you'll find some people there willing to help you out.

P.S. are you writing this in the present tense? because I can start editing grammar if I know how it's supposed to be written

Hi cdsg23,

yes, I wanted to write in present tense, 'cause I think that it could be interesting... :)

Or do you think it would be better to you Simple Past?

Writing in the present is interesting, however things such as descriptions and parts that speak of something that happens as a regular occurance, such as:

Quote:
Jack usually is not that guy flirting with women, even he's a good-looking young man, tall and worked out


need to be in the past simply for modern writing conventions.

I will work on this though.

There you go, there's one pass through, I can go edit it again later when I have time to be more thorough, but there's something for you to work with.
