Ooh, interesting. I've been thinking whether or not to join this team for a while. I've been considering homework, theatre, and other teenager-related distractions against the pride and joy of working on this project, not to mention having that improvement in writing... so I've decided I will join you guys, if you'll have me.1) Would you like to participate now or in the future?
I'll go for it now; Be warned though, I get pretty busy sometimes with homework and theatre, like I said. But when I come home, I like to come home to FMA, and I think Project FMA is a good way to enjoy doing something you love and getting things done.2) How would you like to contribute? Currently we're looking for writers.
I can write, no problem. I have an ff.n account, but I'm insanely shy/modest about my work, so until my confidence has a sudden boost, then I'll keep my profile under wraps.
. I'm also a grammar nazi, especially when it comes to formal, more professional writing. Here on the forums, without a doubt I consider myself pretty lax with my n00b-ish "O rly"s and the like, but don't worry, my inner grammar nazi is everpresent in what I do. I'm also hardcore for spelling... Yes, so I think I'd make a decent editor/beta- whatever is available. I'm also a pretty good sketcher. I work best with Mustang and Pride, but my weaknesses are defintely drawing women. I'm a girl, but I draw guys. But I don't think you guys are looking for illustrators at the moment, so... yeah.
To sum it up: Writer, editor, sketcher (as a last resort... and don't make me do anything involving coloring. I can color on photoshop, but that takes forever, IMO, since then I get all OCD on it).3) Do you have any suggestions/concerns about the way things are organized? Are there things you'd like me or anyone else to clarify?
You guys are amazing at the organization of all this. I love how it's all done and the way you guys appear to cooperate with anoter and whatnot but I'd like to point out a little suggestion, if you will. In the first post it read writers were going in 1st Person POV, but as I continued reading the thread, I realized you guys switched over to 3rd person. I really, really, really
didn't mean to be picky about it, but I thought it would keep things simple if someone didn't read the thread and just started writing then went "Oops...you guys decided on going to 3rd person and I didn't know." Sorry, for attacking that...
And sorry for the unnecessarily long post...
EDIT: And what about the usage of onomatopoeias? Encouraged? Discouraged? Writer's choice?
