Hello, deviants! So it has come to my attention that what we've been doing for the Nefarious Networking Project hasn't quite been working out because of everyone's busy schedules and whatnot. So I come to you this month to ask what you would like to see done differently with the project. Would you prefer the project to just be a chance to introduce yourselves and/or others in the journal comments? Do you like doing the collaborations? Would you prefer that collaborations be facilitated by you and a person of your choosing? Let me know in the comments below or note me! Thanks!
What is the Nefarious Networking Project?
Every month, deviants who respond to the questionnaire below are paired with a deviant to get to know and produce a project. If you have responded to the questionnaire in the past, but have not received a partner, it may be because there have not been enough deviants to pair you up yet. So please comment with answers to the questionnaire if you haven't responded yet and would like a partner or if you have already responded to the questionnaire, please comment explaining so and we will hopefully get you a partner this month. If you have a partner, continue on to this month's networking activity.
Initial Networking Questionnaire
- Introduce yourself. What experience do you have with writing (studying it, getting serious about it, etc)? Would you consider yourself a total newbie, someone who's taken a few creative writing classes in school, or a published professional?
- What are your writing goals? (Writing for fun, writing to publish, etc)
- What do you hope to gain from networking? (You could say, "finding a beta reader," or someone to proofread and give feedback on your writing; you could say, "find a friend in the business"; or, "a friend who can teach me stuff"; or, "looking for a mentor")
- What genre do you typically write, and are you interested in trying new genres?
- Post one line of your work you're particularly proud of.
- Share one thumb of someone else's writing on DA that you really love.
Networking Activity Number 5
This month is an extension of April's project. The deadline has been extended to July 1st.
