Hello, and welcome to Lit Spaz! So...you may be asking yourself...what exactly is this place, and why am I here? Well...this is a community for writers...where deadlines for stories will attack you and rampage through your front lawn. I'll set a theme every couple of weeks or so and everyone will write *something* to follow that theme. It can be poetry, prose, whatever...just as long as it keeps to the theme. And you're obviously here because you *need* to write. So let's do it to it, shall we?
First off, let's go over some rules...
1. Respect other members. 2. No plagarism. 3. Please use proper English...or at least get as close to proper English as you can. 4. Please try to keep to the deadlines. If you miss three or more deadlines, you will be removed from the group and possibly banned. 5. Make sure you apply and are accepted by me before you make any posts. 6. I don't censor writers...if you're under 18 or are easily offended, I don't recommend you join this community. 7. Please put your application behind a cut. I forgot to put this in the original rules, but it's here now *^^*. 8. Please put finished writing behind a cut. 9. Have fun!!!
Here is the application. Please fill it out completely and wait for approval from gaffachic before making any posts. People who fail to fill out an application will be removed from the community and banned if need be.

How Lit Spaz Works
Themes - I will give you a word, phrase, or a picture, and you guys (well, all of us, because I'm included too!) will write *something* to go along with what I've come up with. It can be poetry, prose, script, whathaveyou...just put some effort into it and have fun with it!!! Themes will start when I give them, and stories are due by the due date I provide. The day after the due date will be used to read others' stories and critique them. For the first few go arounds, I'll be choosing the themes, but I'll give you guys a chance as well! ^~.
Finished Works - Please make sure to put your writing behind a cut. This way, our friends pages won't explode ^^. If you don't know how to do a cut, check the LJ FAQ; it is a wealth of information.
Acceptable Content - Anything is acceptable. I don't censor stories, but be advised that I don't censor comments either. If you choose to write something highly controversial, be prepared for the possible hellfire you might have rained upon you.
Critiques - Crits will be done the day after the deadline. ALL members must make AT LEAST one constructive crit on EVERY story that is written. I don't care if you hated something more than you've hated anything, you must find ONE CONSTRUCTIVE THING to say. Beyond that, your crit is yours and I don't care what you say. We're adults here; I have faith we can act that way ^^.
Administrator gaffachic - Roxy. All questions, comments, and whathaveyou's should be directed to her!
