I enjoy writing and whenever i roleplay and get into something, i like to do small stories or other contributions to whatever it is i`m focused on. I`m aware that there are magazines and such in game and it occured to me that my writing skills might be put to good use and even paid use, which would be good for my second life standard of living.
However, as a newbie, i`m none too clued up about how to go about this, so i`m interested in any advice as to how one might go about writing a “book”, or other publishable work in game. Links or personal guidance would be appreciated, as to format and distribution, or content.
As an example, i was tempted to put together some sort of “unauthorised biography” of our good mayor, who seems a fascinating man and a bit of an enigma. I`m sure there are other luminaries in the city or in the world itself that people would be interested to learn more of.
Do we have a babbage newspaper or other “thing” whereby one could contribute articles? After all, articles are a lot more practical than books and would be a good place to get to grips with things before embarking on writing proper. Also much quicker to read!
All assistance welcome.
