sea_of_stars is a science fiction writing community. Short stories and chapters from novels are welcome as are song lyrics or poetry or anything else which is creative sciene-fiction writing. This community is a forum for sharing work as well as recieving feedback in the form of praise, comments, questions, and constructive criticism. The key is constructive criticism. Anybody posting blatant flames, flame-bait, or otherwise abusing the author or their work will be given just one warning then banned. Trolls will ~not~ be tolerated.
sea_of_stars is for ~science fiction~ writings, including cyberpunk, sci-fantasy, space opera, and alternate modern among many many others. Pure fantasy and alternate history should be posted in silverquills which is more geared towards that sort of writing.
LJ cuts for long blocks of text are mandatory and anybody repeatedly posting chapters or stories without cutting them may find their posts deleted. LJ cuts are also recommended when the content may be offensive, graphic, or just not for people of all ages.
Unless otherwise stated, all works contained in this community are property of the person posting and no duplication or reposting is permitted without the express permission of that author.
The rules are as follows. 1.) Be polite and courteous. Debate and dissenting opinions are welcome. Arguements and flaming are not. 2.) Please at least attempt to use proper English grammar and spelling. Occasional abbreviations or l33t speak is tolerable, messages full of it are not. 3.) LJ-Cut anything long or sizable like images. Not everybody is on broadband and not everybody has the same screen resolution that you might have. In the same vein, please use HTML when posting long URLs that might stretch the screen (and thus people's friends pages). 4.) Quizzes and memegens are forbidden and any posts with them will be deleted.
If your post or comment violates these rules you will get one warning and then the offending post or comment will be deleted.
If you are here trolling you ~will~ be banned. Period. Your only warning is right here in the user info. If you get banned and come back with another username, you will be reported to LJ Abuse without hesistation. I have no tolerance for trolls.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
