the greatest thing in the world? writing.
here on polyvore, we have the epic "roleplaying".

well, i'm here to solve that problem for you.
 
this is a group on polyvore where you enter your writing. this includes,
-rants
-letters
-blogs
-roleplay stories/ads
-diary entires of your life...
 
our message for you?
BE YOUR OWN CHARACTER.
 
if you've ever wanted to put
your writings/blurbs somewhere...
well, here you go.
 

THE 3 GUIDELINES TO FINE WRITING;
1) comment on the sets entered into the group! make friends with fellow writers...we don't bite. well, not most of the time. beware when we have writer's block though.
 
2) participate in contests. i'll have themed-contests for different types of writing.
it'll be fun. and a great way to get..."featured".
 
3) please, please: only join/enter sets if you are serious with your writing.
no,
"she was like totally in love with him and so they went to the mall and after had sex"...
 
write with your brain, your heart, and your soul.
if your brain, your heart, and/or your soul is helping you write that...well...
yeah.
 
so once again,
be your own character.
 
write.
 
and in case you were wondering?
"The 'Oxford comma' is an optional comma before the word 'and' at the end of a list:
ex., We sell books, videos, and magazines.
 
It's known as the Oxford comma because it was traditionally used by printers, readers, and editors at Oxford University Press. Not all writers and publishers use it, but it can clarify the meaning of a sentence when the items in a list are not single words:
ex., These items are available in black and white, red and yellow, and blue and green.
 
The Oxford comma is also known as the 'serial comma'."
