Chatterbox: In This Month's Issue

Save Inkwell.

Save Inkwell.


I have noticed that Inkwell has been quite inactive lately and was wondering if anyone here has a plan to revive it.

Most of the roleplays that were once active (such as the Cat roleplay and Squirrel roleplay) are now inactive. A horse roleplay was also recently made and has been inactive as well.

Does anybody have any roleplay ideas that are unique so we can catch Chatterboxer's attentions?

I've noticed that too, and I've been trying to think of ways to revive it!

I started a Solo Write that I quite like and have been working hard on, but unfortunatly it seems like the Admins aren't too fond of it for its darker themes– Hopefully they approve it, I've already started working on future Solo Writes/RPs to tie into its universe. I've also learned/read darker stuff in elementary school, from history class and required reading. So maybe they'll consider that while they review it? I'm not planning to kill off characters 'on screen' or anything, which is milder than what some Ski Lodges do on here.

But if it gets approved and I'm allowed to continue with my Zdroiskan universe, I feel like it'd bump the Inkwell activity up at least a little bit! So fingers crossed :D!

Other than that, I think I'm going to do a 'Write This in Your Style' thread! Like 'Draw This in Your Style,' but for writing!

I might start some kind of historical RP as well, one that doesn't tie into my main universe. I think a Wild West one could be a lot of fun! Just need to figure out a plot...

Even though the Zdroiska solo write's only got one part posted so far, it's become one of my favorites, so fingers crossed you'll be able to continue it!

I'm so glad you like it!! I genuinely love the feedback you've given me and your characters! I have *quite* the plans for them in store, hopefully I have a chance to share it! ;D

I saw that the admins finally made a decision on Zdroiska... I'm so sorry, Tenebrous. I hope you continue to write it even though you can't share it with us.

However, just because Glory to Zdroiska didn't fit the CB rules doesn't mean you can't write other things in the same universe. Perhaps the admins would allow you to share other stories from that world, perhaps even featuring some of the same charries, so long as they fit CB rules? I love your writing and I'd love to read anything from you, not just stuff from the world of Zdroiska.

Thank you so much!! I think the next story I'm going to start might be outside of Zdroiska's universe, but... That might not be the last you see of that glorious country on here! ;D

Ooooh! A 'Write this in your style' sounds very fun, Tenebrous!

As for RP ideas, you can be sure I do have a few. It seems that nowadays I always have ideas, which I don't know whether is a good thing or not. Starting from the oldest I have...

1. Project Skyline. It's been an idea my subconscious been tossing around for two months. Unbelivable, right? And despite that, it still isn't fleshed out. I was thinking about it to be a rather steampunk - futuristic - fantasy world setting, about a bunch of aspiring young inventors and their troubles. But I'll see about that.

2. Camp of Creation. Expanding on my random thought I posted on DTE about notebooks and their theraputic uses and the theorized pocket dimension within them that contains leaking ideas, I have created this. Welp, it isn't the most polished idea there is, but perhaps we can do something with a writing and arts camp that has mystical legends surrounding it.

3. Argh I need to go... I'll finish this soon!

Both of those sound awesome! I'd love to join either of those if you launched an RP from them!

Why thank you Scuttles! That may or may not have made my day :D

Also, I'm terribly sorry for your solo-write, Tenebrous. If it makes you feel better, I'm still trying to get myself over deleting 35684 words of hard work in thirty seconds, so I really feel for you. *Offers the duck of self-inflicted therapy and good advice*

And [on the art of picking up a conversation started days ago]:

3. I was thinking a possible RP about zodiac signs here, but it's fresh out of the half-bakery*, so I'll let it cool for a while first. Any good suggestions for this one?

4. A miniature RP! Not in the sense that it's a small RP, but in the sense that it's a small RP.


Get it? No?

What I mean is that there's a whole unexplored world out there about perspective. And by that I mean size. I don't think I know many RP's out there that have characters around the size of three inches, so yes, a RP with miniature sizes should be quite intresting, I think. I wonder why there aren't many of those around. 

And I should have a few more ideas to add on here, but they seem to be still floating in the void of non-existence for now. I think 4 ideas should give Inkwell quite a boost already, if they manage to gain traction.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk XD

Maybe these could help?

1. Dragon rider rp~ The last one litrally died a year ago.

2. Ski lodge~ Obvious reasons!

3.Squirrel rp~ Just sounds cute!

I made an Interactive Solo Write, which should hopefully help to revive the Inkwell a bit! :D
