[info]originalslash

This is for writers of original fiction about homosexual/bisexual/transgendered/queer characters who want to discuss, bitch, moan, and ask questions about such fiction. It specifically excludes fanfic and NaNoWriMo/NaNoWriYe updates.

(And yes, slash may be a problematic term to apply to original fiction, but it's one that many writers of this kind of fiction are used to using, and it will make it easier to find the comm).

Idea for the community and the user info are credited to [info]the_willow, who first came up with the idea.

Now to find my photoshop disc, darn it and make a nice icon for it :)

Are you going to promote it in the asylum promotion comm?

You know, I hadn't thought of that. Might be a good idea...

Just an off-topic 'hi'

Hope you don't mind that I've friended you. I was a faithful reader of you livejournal (I have the same username there), so I guess it's only fitting that I've followed you here :)

Hooray! It just a matter of time to post there.

By the way, may I be added? I've been reading your rants from LJ for nearly 2 years now and you're always food for my thoughts whenever I write.

I'm intrigued and I think this could provide me with useful information. I'll definitely watch the comm!

I hope so! I'd hate to see the comm die for lack of participation.

I could be using it in the future. One of my male characters is always disappointed by women and considers trying with men.

Oh, this works. :D

[info]yuuo and I have a story that has a m/m pairing turned m/m/f triad in the course of it, so this might be a valuable comm. (one of the males doesn't make distinction on gender, the other is mostly gay with some bi leanings. We're not writing perfect 6s and having them go straight for vagina or nothin'. :D;;)

Also, one more question. I get the whole no NaNoWri- stuff, but... does this mean we're not allowed to discuss characters or plots or anything else if it's connected to something we're doing or have done for NaNo?

... cause if it is, then I'm probably gonna leave the comm, since we use NaNo to force out a working draft to play with and if I'm not allowed to discuss anything I do then, then there's nothing for me to contribute. :D;; (we're going to write the same story but from different POVs so when we make one draft, we have a better idea of what's going on behind most of the major scenes.)

As far as I know, [info]the_willow simply meant that this should primarily be a discussion comm, and thus, posting "I got 1400 words done on my NaNo project today!" would be annoying since it leaves us nothing to discuss. Likewise, just posting a link back to a fic you once wrote would be annoying. Since she used the word "updates," it really shouldn't matter where/how the novel originated, as long as mere updates on its status aren't the only thing that get posted to the comm.

Okay, good. I wasn't sure, on re-reading, if anything done in connection with NaNo was verboten or not, since I don't write in NaNo for NaNo itself, but rather to work out drafts to tool around with.
