It began with a walk at the park...

A chance to stretch your legs and enjoy the beauty of nature, really. While walking and enjoying the golden leaves and the crisp air, you notice a strange looking figure standing by the stream. Upon approaching, you notice it's a brown colored ixi, her hair swept up into a tight updo, a few stray tendrils loose against her neck. She's holding a weewoo, watching it as it preens.

Her green eyes turn towards you, and she smiles.

Good day to you! Are you well? You nod politely, and she looks you up and down. You look troubled. she states, tilting her head curiously.
I-I'm sorry. I'm just at a bit of a loss. I've been working on some writing an- The ixi holds up a hand to stop you.
Seems like fate has plans. Come. Walk with me.

You walk with her through the park, and she moves the weewoo from her outstretched hand to her shoulder.
This is Quill. He's my weewoo. I'm Writer.
W-writer? That's an interesting name.
Yes. And I think that's why I'm here. I believe that you need some assistance, correct?
Y-yeah!
Then let's see what I can do to help!

Introduction

Welcome friends to Writer's Petpage. I wish I had some fancy name, but I really don't. This is her spot on the web. I'm Sunny and I'm her...not exactly owner, or guardian really. It's more like I let her crash with me when she's not travelling.

Anyway, here you'll find information related to sharing writing here in Neopia in various forms. Now, there will not be much mention of plotting, character creation, or other things here. Should you need help in that department, I recommend heading down to White River, Meridell and taking a look at Charrie Riddle's Hatshop:



Should you need any more assistance, feel free to ask. Writer or I will be happy to assist.

Types of Neopian Writing:

Before we begin, we must ask the question...what types of writing are allowed in neopia, and where would we find them? This is a complex question to answer, but I'm going to attempt to do it as best as I possibly can.


The Neopian Times

When most people think of writing on neopets, they often think of submitting to the Neopian Times. This user-run newspaper contains articles, comics, short stories, editorial questions, story series, and of course...lots and lots of white weewoos. Submitting to this paper can net you neopian fame, a trophy for your userlookup, prizes (during certain special issues) and even avatars!

The Storytelling Contest

Located in a series of caves below Neopia Central, there's a fire pit with various logs and stone benches. What goes on here? The Storytelling Contest! In this contest, sections of a story are submitted by neopians just like you, with the story twisting and turning each time that a new storyteller adds a new section. Each person who submits a section gets a trophy for their userlookup, 2,000 NP and a rare item!

Petpages/Petlookups

It's quite common for owners to put their pet's stories on their petpages, or a snippit of their story on their petlookups. Stories are often part of applications as well. If you want some examples, here's some below:

.:Mossy's Woodland Haven:.. . . IsdariVisit the Flower Crown Ixi!

Poetry Contest

If you take a dislike to prose,
and comparing things to a rose,
well if you do, then how about you
try this contest and see if you win?
-Sunny (who is not a poet)

The Poetry Contest is where you can submit poems themed to Neopian subjects. When you win, you get 1,000NP, a trophy for your userlookup, and a rare item.

Pet/Petpet Spotlight

These two contests, the Pet Spotlight and Petpet Spotlight both allow users to submit a picture and a short written piece about the pet or petpet in question. Typically it's a short "snapshot" of a moment in that pet or petpet's life. These spotlights only earn you a trophy, so they can be entered on side accounts.

Reference



Writer's got a quad reference because there are some artists who simply cannot draw anthro ixi. So I created a quad version of her. I don't really /use it/ in my stories/roleplay, it's really just here to allow those artists to be able to create fan art if they're really keen/interested in doing it. ;)
