Hello people,

As I've said before, Adopt-a-Writer is rebooting, so to say.  What that means is that we are pairing up anyone who hasn't been yet, but we need you to send in a new friend/mentor/mentee application .  That is, unless you've sent one within the last 2 weeks.  

So far, we got about 10-12 applications, which, while good, isn't enough to get some strong pairs together.  Along with that, we don't have anyone volunteering to be mentors. While we don't want to force anyone into being a mentor, especially if you aren't comfortable helping someone in that capacity, we need some members to step up to be a mentor, and if someone can even take on multiple people, it'd be fabulous.

Finally, I haven't said it before, but helping get the group back on track are some awesome people that deserve to be recognized:
lilskellington
thetaoofchaos
HeyThereISeeYou
CoLdEmBeRs22

So everyone, send in those applications!  The sooner we pair everyone up, the sooner we can move on to other steps of making the group more active.

Erick

Just wanted to say that I would be willing to take on more than one member if you're still having trouble finding mentors. I'm comfortable with both prose and poetry and glad to help if you need it.

If I send you the application in a note, do I have to post my own application and such to the group as a deviation?

Where's the links to the profiles? I'd like to apply for a mentor position. I help teach creative writing so I figured I could be of service here. :)

No no its okay. I went back and spotted it about ten minutes ago and just laughed at myself. Sorry about that. Also, are you the founder?

Awesome :)

And no. I was a contributor (and still am). However, the founder, along with the other contributors are MIA, so I kinda became the new unofficial founder. And the people listed in the journal are the unoffical contributors. I'd make it offical, but I cannot promote people. :shrug:

Ah, what sort of powers do you have in the group? Actually, let's continue this in a note. I've spotted a small problem in the group and it'd be better if we discussed this quietly. :)

Oh were we supposed to send in our own profiles even though we're helping?

I'd say so, I mean, you still want a friend/mentor/mentee, yes?

Very understandable. What's up is that I am taking over the group, because the other admins have been inactive for very long. They are the ones that had the lists of applicants as well, and I cannot access those lists. So to make it simple, I am asking people to resubmit their applications so that the new group can get everyone paired up.

awesome, I get to resubmit for a 4th time. I will do so when I get a free moment.
Just feeling like the last one chosen for the team with this group.

I apologize for that, but I promise that once we get a good deal of applications from everyone (which is growing at a good clip) we will start pairing everyone up to the best of out abilities.

Question: I would like to apply, but had a friend in mind. They aren't a member, but I suggested joining. They write manga, but though the art is terrific, the plot line is abysmally executed. I know she has potential and want to give her the chance. If not, I will submit an app for sure. :)

You are very welcome to submit an application for yourself, as well as your friend. However, it might be better if she was able to join and create her own, being able to put her styles in her own words. It is your call, but I'd recommend that she join herself first.
