Welp, it's October, so it's finally culturally acceptable again to have a spooky skellington as your avatar picture (lookin' at you, Meeester)
Also skulltrumpet videos as far as the eye can see, because what even is Halloween without skulltrumpet
Now here's the somewhat embarrassing part - in a month, it looks like I've only been given three group submissions. Last month we had several times that, and interest has been pretty steady for awhile. This month, I've only got a total of three, and even going through my PM history doesn't turn up any I missed. If you did submit one, and it's not here, bug me about it ASAP and I'll get you added back on, but otherwise I'm just going to chalk this up to a slow month. Too many people getting ready for the SKELETON WAR to worry about what their groups are doing, I dunno.
Request Criticism is a group where you can go and get help with your fanfics. While 'Looking for Editors' and couple other groups exercise in making your story look good, Request Criticism exercises in your story building. What does this mean? Fimfiction lacks a lot of fanfics with good quality. Many writers also want to get better, but they don't know what they're doing wrong. This group is here to help you.
By joining Request Criticism, you'll learn the does and don'ts, the good and the bad, and proper spelling and grammar. (That's actually another group) We'll also occasionally review fanfics. When we get a certain number of request, we'll give some reviews to a couple of decent stories monthly/weekly. This group is here to make sure you don't fail, and we'll do our best to make sure we know what we're saying before posting.
Every fanfic, good or bad, has at least one thing that makes it unique. We're here to show you that.
This group is dedicated to bringing your ideas to life. Here you can find people willing to bring your fanfiction ideas to reality. Don't need an idea brought to life? Are you a writer? Then come along and be a part of the team that helps the others with their ideas. All are welcome so come on by today. I'll see you there.
It's about time that we take our revenge. Let the dark side flow through you. Harm everyone who has harmed you. Join the First Order if you are feeling the need to harm.... You are one of three classes.
Stormtrooper- One of the normal soldiers
Admiral- An admin
Sith Lord- Only two at a time. Margopolo and Ramses are the only Sith currently.
We will get our revenge here on FIM. And we will build an Empire!
The night of fear,
the night of darkness,
the night your nightmares come true,
there is no hiding,
there is no escape,
nightmare night will come,
it will bring your fears,
all of them,
so you better be ready for nightmare night
Well, how about that, two groups exclusively about writing and a topical holiday group. Not a bad list, despite the short length. But seriously, don't hesitate to send in groups to be advertised for November! It's free exposure, so you might as well take advantage of it. Even if you've advertised in these before, I don't mind doing repeats as long as I get a new PM each time.
If you want to submit for November, send me a PM with the following:
-A link to the group's front page, or FAQ, or rules, or whatever you want people to navigate to
(I appreciate the thought people put into making clickable links for me, but since I need the actual URL to recreate it for the blog it's actually less work for both of us if you just paste it in the message text raw)
-A brief, 150-ish word description of what the group's for and why people should join. Keep in mind that this is going to be copied and pasted directly into the blog as written, so try to avoid saying things like "it's a group I created," because then it's going to sound like I, Eldorado, created it.
I'll accept just about anything, as long as there's not a legal issue that I'm wary of. I also don't accept groups about specific stories or people, but if it's a big universe type setting with multiple authors currently working on stories, then it's usually okay.
That's all there is for this month, so I'll see you (and hopefully a few more groups) in November!

Groups Posts are a monthly group advertisement blog open to anyone who wants a signal boost. If you're interested in having your group advertised in one of these, send me a PM with the name of the group, a link to its front page, and a brief description of what the group is for. I'll copy this directly into the post, so write it like you're trying to tell other people about why they should join or pay attention to your group - anything up to around 150-ish words is fine.
Good day folks,
The School for New Writers is still alive and kicking and we have a new way to share some writing tips with you in the form of a monthly discussion video cast between some of our professors. This first month's post can be found here and covers a variety of topics from "How to make Characters More Realistic" to "How to show not tell a landscape" and several others in between.
So remember, if you want to try to improve your writing consider FIMFiction's own School for New Writers, one of the largest groups on the site.
Come and join us to share your stories and give / get meaningful comments! Everyone who joins is guaranteed to get at least one comment on the fic of your choice!
A group dedicated to helping readers find stories they can listen to. There are already hundreds listed, and more are being added shockingly quickly. If listening, rather than reading, is your thing, you'll be glad you came!
There are many stories about Conversion Bureaus, some good or bad. But this group is somewhat different then the others. We made this group in hope to change the idea of Conversion Bureaus. Where ponies convert humans into ponies, we change it to make humans convert ponies into humans.
More details are on our group home page. We also allow our forum to be whatever you wish to discuss. We wish for great writers to join us and to create stories based around our idea.
For fans of The Old Republic game and it's prequels, KOTOR's 1 and 2.
Talk about the character's you've made, the story ideas you've had, and even team up with other members of the group in SWTOR.
Do you ever wonder if your strings are getting pulled? Do you feel like a puppet? Well, if you do, then this group is for you! We have fanfics based on any sort of puppeteering or ponies getting their strings pulled. We mainly focus on the FNAF puppet, but we also accept any other Fics!
Have you created a character for a story or ponysona and want a second opinion? Well in that case you can post here, and members of the community will help you improve it. No OC is too daunting for our fearless, if small, group. You can also feel free to discuss OCs in general, as well as the stories they appear in, and just pony stuff that strikes your fancy.
So what are you waiting for? Start posting your well thought-out and developed characters, so we can help you make them even better!
Write my fic for me is having a contest at 100 members! This is a contest for everyone for all you great writers or all of those who have great ideas! Show us what you got! Join now and details will be released once we hit 100 members!
That's it for September. See you next month!
