I second that guild idea, being the President of the Guild at my school and a prolific writer of sci-fi and fantasy. EDIT: For example, what if I post a thread to gather critique about some of my sci-fi pieces? See, now, the only problem with this is that you should be a little concerned that some may desire to steal your work. I mean, it's kinda pointless to, because of the following reasons... a). If your concept, story, writing, etc... is good enough, there likely will be those who will steal it and try to get a copyright before you do. b). If your writing's bad but your concept is just amazing, it's gonna get stolen. c). If the writing's good but there's really no concept, a formulaic story, etc..., everyone will grow disinterested with it. d). if everything's bad it won't even get critiqued because people won't be able to pay it comment and won't give a rat's ass about posting constructive criticism because they'll think you're a bad writer forever and sign you off. Additionally, if this idea were to come to pass, we might as well make a non-SW user W.I.P. forum. But it is my sincere belief as a writer since the age of eleven that this will just be a goldmine to shamelessly take ideas and concepts w/o modification and encourage plagiarism. Now a guild on the other hand would be better because we could discuss plot details, character, etc... in search of some advice and ideas, w/o publicly displaying our non-copyrighted works. But even that I have some paranoid ideas about because well I can't say... I just don't want to give... certain people... ideas.
