Happy Holidays!
Uboachan Dream World MUD is back up. The issue stems from DennisMUD not being able to update its SSL cert without being restarted manually. A fix will be investigated, see GitHub Issue #115.

Anon is still around ubuu, so there's a good chance that he'll reply.
However, I advise him to be cautions about this whole thing since he'll be basically doxing himself. If he finds no problem by doing so then it's alright to post about it, but if he doesn't then I'd recommend to hand over a mail address where people interested can contact him directly.

Anyway, it really feels weird to have someone successful here, considering the average post here involves mostly ranting and depression.
Well done, OP.

OP here. Well, success didn't last long -_- it's a long story but, basically, I found out the publisher was majorly screwing me behind my back, so I had to protect myself and sever the contract. Of course, the book was immediately removed from all points of sale.
Good news is - my agent has just found me a publisher for an English version (minor publisher, but still), so I guess it was more of a case of 'a door closes, a gate opens'. Not even sure if that saying exists in English but whatever.

In the meantime I'll link one of the good reviews the original Italian got - doxing myself but I really don't see who would give a fuck.

ITT we write a story one sentence at a time. When you add a sentence, make sure you wait for at least one other contribution before adding another.

Hello! I'm looking for something relatively easy (or intermediate) to help improve my vocabulary, since English is not my first language. Any genre is alright.

Nekojiru Udon (known in english as Cat Soup) was a manga originally published in Garo magazine. Some of it got translated (http://mangafox.la/manga/nekojiru_udon/) but there was much more that never was to my knowledge. There's a blog that was translating it (https://translatingnekojiru.tumblr.com/) but from what I remember it was a clusterfuck of random pages from different volumes, and now you apparently can't view it without a tumblr account. Does anyone own scans of or physical copies that they could scan of the untranslated volumes?

It was also made into 2 anime. A half hour long film, whch I know some of you have seen already (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlLBX4EIlJY) and a series of short cheap episodes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWnkOvi4i6c).

Dear Friends,
i've been working on this art project called The Edges of The Cube for a few years now and finally it is about to take off. I'm excited!
actually this is the first place in the Wired where i post about it other than the fb Yume Nikki group.
if you love Yume Nikki, i'm sure, you will be attracted to my little thing as well.
first 2 chapters and a video you can find on my website,
www.theedgesofthecube.com

 No.593

The video narrator sounds like a giant faggot. Am I supposed to listen to this for 8 minutes? Because I can't.

 No.594

I haven't finished reading the text but the voice in the video you use makes it hard to listen to, which is a shame because I like the ideas expressed in it. I did listen to the whole thing but you did not use a voice good for conveying information. It seemed like you deliberately used a breathy voice that you weren't comfortable in, when you should be speaking strongly and distinctly. I'll get to the writing portion when/if I have time to finish it (I read slowly).

 No.595

i appreciate the feedback. You are right, that isn't my natural voice. If i'd do my regular tone it wouldn't go with the character, though. He has this ghosty vibe, that i want to preserve as much as possible.

I was hoping there were some people out there that know of any good writer support groups. I'm currently working on a book, but the problem is that the genre is kind of hard to pinpoint, though it leans toward supernatural overall. So are there any groups that you'd recommend to me?

 No.503

Find a competent forum RPG, make a character, participate, and talk to the other players. That's how I learned to write.

 No.810

If you're fine with a writing group where the writers are from tumblr (this one is a lot less crazy than the ones that allow minors and there are even people there who won't get angry at you for every small "mistake") then ask and I can give you the discord link

A fair amount of people have asked what are books that are reminiscent of Yume Nikki. This made me wonder if there are books of similar vein to .flow - or, to be broader, it's like a Yume Nikki-esque book but gritter, creepier, or more horror-oriented. Would be interested in reading what y'all mention.

I am fond of reading poems. Reading and writing own stories and poems helps me to improve English skills. Few weeks ago I wrote my poem and published it on one site for writers. Two days later I found that it was published on anotjer site under another author's name. Plagiarism also well- known problem in wrtitng essays. I prefer to write essays by my own and now i am fighting with writing reflective essay like here https://essaypro.com/blog/reflective-essay/
