New Follow Forum Follow Topic

Story brainstorming! Post your writing quandaries here and we'll help you solve them. A throwback to the old Weather Centre you knew and loved (?).


1. ONLY ONE BRAINSTORMING REQUEST AT A TIME. When the problem is solved or three days have passed, the request will be closed.

2. This is an open thread about solving knotty problems in your stories. Any and all brainstorming about writing is welcome.

3. A typical brainstorming request post will include:

- the date of the post

- a link to the story on FP

- the problem you want us to solve

- the things you've tried already to solve the problem

3. Requests will be active for three days unless previously closed by the OP. If they're not closed at the end of three days, mods will close them. If you see an older post and nobody's closed it yet, tell us in South Wind.

4. To close a post, put "CLOSED" at the top and bottom of the post.

5. If your problem wasn't solved and you'd like to request it again, please wait one week before reposting.
