Authors' Hangout Library

Welcome to the Authors' Hangout Archive.

The purpose of this archive is to provide links to topics covered here, by authors of this site. Several of us felt it a shame that such a wealth of resources and knowledge were buried way back in the annuls of the AH.

This archive focuses predominantly on threads and topics relating to writing, or issues directly related to Literotica, however, there are a few notable threads here which members of the AH thought worthy of archiving. These include topics which can affect many of us, including: depression, relationships, sexuality, and the need to have some fun!

Within this archive, there will also be answers to many of the frequently asked questions that come up here, at the AH - as well as links to the many threads which answer those questions.

Please do not post comments in this thread.

If you have any suggestions for, or comments about, the AH Archive, please feel free to post in the AH Thread Library - Discussion Thread . You can also PM the AH Thread Librarian directly. For those of you new to this forum, please read the Welcome Authors! Please Read sticky, at the top of the AH, for links to useful information and tips on navigating both the Author’s Hangout and Literotica, as a whole.

At this point, a couple of credits have to be given for the ideas and inspiration behind this project. Sweetnpetite came up with the original idea, and both she and Tatelou took a lot of inspiration from the BDSM Library. Thanks to the BDSM Librarian, S’lara, for your encouragement, support, and Tatelou's blatant ripping of your format. Also, thank you to the many AH’ers who have helped in this task, by providing suggestions and links.

We hope you find this archive useful, informative and fun.


[This thread is under construction. If you have any ideas or suggestions on topics or threads to be added, please post in the Discussion thread.Please do NOT post here.]

I don't care what the thread is, how serious the subject, be it politics, love, writing, or any other topic you care to name, I can guarantee that you won't get 20 posts without some two or more contributors going off in to a discussion of someone's AV.

Depression

There have been many threads and discussions on this board about depression and ways of attempting to cope with it. It has been argued many times that perhaps the creative mind is more inclined to suffering from depression, but that discussion will no doubt run and run. Here's some of threads in which many here have opened up and shared their experiences.

Editing/Editors

The editing process often takes longer than the initial writing of the story, and is crucial to achieving that polished finished product. Editing isn't discussed that much at the AH itself, but it does come up from time to time. Here's some links to threads discussing editing, both here at the Author's Hangout and over at the Editing Forum. Also tips on how to find a good editor.

FAQs

This is a list of questions that are frequently asked on the AH:

How long does it take for a story to post? - At the present time, it can take between 1-2 weeks for your story to appear once it's been submitted. If you click on the preview link of your submission, then you are sending your story back to the end of the queue, and you have to start your wait all over again.

My story has been rejected - why? - There are numerous reasons for a story to be rejected on Lit. Usually there will be a message that will hint at the reason. It could be grammar, punctuation, improper use of dialogue, paragraphs are too big, mention of underage sex, etc. When in doubt, you can post here or in the Editors' Forum and someone will probably volunteer to help you solve the mystery.

Can I refer to sex before 18 in a flashback? - Only if there are no details provided whatsoever. You can say "So and so lost her virginity or had sex"... and that's about all you can do.

Is there a clique in the Author's Hangout?
- Depends on who you ask. Some say no, some say yes. You just have to decide that one for yourself.

Why are trolls? - Because some people have nothing better to do than to ruin your day.

A story or author I read earlier has now vanished. Why? - Periodically, authors will pull their stories from Lit. This can be due to personal reasons or because of publication elsewhere.

How do I find a particular story? - Search for it using Literotica's search feature. Sometimes, you might have success asking here or on the Story Feedback forum.

Why does Og wear a cake on his head? - because he's got a bald spot underneath and Henry VIII didn't have one.

How do I edit a posted story? - Simply submit the new version as you submitted the old one, only adding the word "EDITED" to the title (ex. "My Sexy Firefighter Ch. 03 - EDITED") so that Lit knows to replace the old text with the new text. They will then replace the original text with the new text. Your story will retain its previous voting score and views.

Guess The Voice - AH Author Challenges

The idea for these challenges was initially spawned from a thread on the AH discussing Voice and whether or not we felt our voice in our writing was distinctive and easily recognisable to others. Impressive suggested it would be a fun, and perhaps informative, venture for authors here at the AH to write a short piece on a set theme, and then for a designated person to receive each of the pieces by PM, and post them blind on the AH, for others to try to work out who had written which piece.

Here's links to all the threads pertaining to the voice challenges:

Characters, Plots, the basics in plain language.

A place called Unclean Arts, , It seems appropriate in this company.

Quote:
Firstly, let me throw out a somewhat imprecise working definition of a screenplay character:

character - an artificial, aesthetic construct that simulates a human life for the purpose of entertainment, or for the exploration of dramatic, moral, or aesthetic issues.
And!
Quote:
Myth, Symbol, and Philosophy

Theme: The Soul of Story
Understanding and applying theme to your own screenplays is essential to creating work of impact, relevance, and duration -- and indeed, the line between competence and greatness.

Submerged: The Story Beneath the Story
A detailed examination of the role that symbols and symbolic meaning plays in screenplay storytelling, via a thorough look at the many layers of theme and idea contained in "Alien."

Know Thyself, or How to Avoid Becoming a Hack
Only writing that originates from self-knowledge and experience can approach greatness.
