So many of us do have a story to tell and most times do know how to start the story, but then the muse suddenly disappears and then we get stuck in the middle of our story, even when we know there is still so much more to write.
Most of us have been victims of this situation a number of times, with a sudden surge of desperation and frustration, as so many manuscripts lay somewhere in our libraries unfinished and each day we look at them and feel unaccomplished.
For some others, there is actually a story they want to share with the world, it is so strong in their heart that each day goes unfulfilled, as they never get to start the story lurking in their mind. It is not as though they are lazy, it is just that they just could not bring themselves to start because they don’t know how to. Most of the times, when there seems to be no solution, they painfully kill the story off their heart.
And then there is another category that do love to read a John Grisham, Sidney Sheldon, Chinua Achebe, Wole Soyinka, Ngugi Wa Thiong’o, Thomas Hardy, Chimamanda Adichie, amongst so many other creative works, but just do not have any idea about this writing business, in as much as somewhere in their mind, they want to know how to achieve this. But they don’t get to see anyone write where they find themselves. They have gone on the internet, and typed in ‘how to write’ but they end up learning nothing from abstract materials with no practical instances that could make them explore.
For everyone of us, we do wish that a miracle could strut out of somewhere, just anywhere. And guess, what, it is finally here! You do not have to bother about the lapses in your creative prowess, as Nextscenes launches its site to help solve all of your writing problems. Either you need someone to help start a story that you could continue or you need a contribution to a story you already started or you need a practical platform to learn how to write, Nextscenes, as established by Mr. Godwin Oguzie, has the perfect solutions.
How it works
The site has different Forums that would suite your interest; which includes Action, Crime, Children’s Forum, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy and the Historical, which gives you enough choices to pick from. Under each forum, more categories could come up that touches on various aspects of each forum, which breaks it down further, giving you more choices.
For each forum, there is a Moderator, a moderator is the one that initiates a story and leaves it for the contributors, otherwise known as the Power Users to create the next appropriate scene to the initiated story. The Power Users are registered members of the site that would propose various scenes to the initiated story.
After the various scenes are provided, everyone, including Regular Users, who are just on the site to read and learn, would go to the discussion room and pick the most appropriate scene that tallies with the initiated story. When the best scene is picked, the Power Users propose various scenes that best continues the story, and the cycle is repeated until a complete text is achieved within a span of four months.
While the scenes are been provided by the contributors, the Moderators, who initiate the story would edit for necessary corrections, arrange the structure to appropriately achieve the beginning, climax and denouement. After appropriating all of these, the finished text is sent to a publishing house, where the editor puts a finishing touch to it before publication.
With all of the forums and categories available, about 30 complete texts would be available after the end of four months, and all 30 would be published, with the acute possibility of having not less than 5 best sellers, considering that it is the selection of the best that made the final results.
The Moderators have more works on them concerning the smooth running of the site, and are rewarded at calculated periods of time. The contributors whose scenes came out best and make the complete text, would have their names acknowledged on the published text, and would also get paid.
For the most committed regular users, who indulge in the discussions, recommendations and votes, they would constantly get rewarded with packages.
Nextscenes has been able to reach out to everyone, as it touches on various genres of creative writing, and also to different categories of writers and readers. It is indeed what the creative world has been waiting for, and it is that miracle you have waited for, for too long.
