    @ThePlumbob @Munterbacon @roseinblack69: Made a thread. ;) It's pretty basic and I'm open to changing the name.

    Cool deal! I've got your thread listed! I like your name!

    (Does anybody else suffer from Circle Envy? LOL!)

    Did you leave a cookie trail? :)

    EDIT: And you know that we stole the questionnaire from the Disney Princess Novel Idea group, right? ;)

    Ok... so a few thoughts after the busy flurry of hurry-up-and-sign-up!

    Thought one: let's have waiting lists! That way, if someone wants to join a group but it's currently full, they can get on the waiting list and grab a spot when one opens! Also, this gives us a kind way to say to those wanting in, "We're so glad you're interested in our group! We're currently full, and once a spot opens up, we'll love to have you! Let's add you to the Waiting List for our group!" Then, please be sure to let me know, and I will add that person to the waiting list.

    Thought two: I think it's ok for us to join more than one Circle... I'm thinking of TS4 clubs. Our Sims can be in more than one club! The situation for me is that I have more than one currently active story. I don't want to require my circle members to have to keep up with more than one story, so what I want to do is to sign up with one circle for one story and have another circle for another story! Of course, those of us who sign up for more than one circle can be considerate to make room for those who aren't yet in any circle, but as long as there's room--and as long as we feel able to be productive contributors of both--I think it's fine and useful!

    Other thoughts, responses, and observations after our first few days getting started?

    I didn't! It's a good survey!

    Hi Everyone! I think this is an awesome idea, and it seems like a great way to make friends and show support :) I'd love to be put into a group!

    Yay, equuest! Please take a look at the list of Circles on the first page, and see which one you'd like to join! A few still have spots, there's a brand new one forming, and the currently full ones have waiting lists! :)

    Just post here when you see which one you want to join. I've got a busy afternoon, but I'll have time this evening or tomorrow to add you!

    Um... hi! I've been thinking about this because it is a neat idea and I like it, so I've kind of wanted to join, but I'm a bit afraid that I start to take my pledge of reading the works too seriously and start stressing about it. But since it's summer and I have a lot of free time I guess I can give it a shot...

    So I could join The Art Commune, if that's okay. Unless my stories are not out of the mainstream? I think they kind of are, but I don't know.

    @RipuAncestor I've been secretly stressing about keeping up, too, BUT I've made a deal with myself that if I can't commit I'll be up front and say something as soon as I admit it to myself, haha! :)

    I'm so excited about this. Once I get settled, I'm going to start a Circle :)

    Thanks for thinking this up!

    Umm.... Death worrying about the extinction of a frog? Umm.... a vampire gossip columnist? Ummm.... motley crews of immortals?

    Nah! Nothing out of the ordinary about that!

    I'm signing you up for the commune, baby! :)

    We can always make as one of our agreements: no stressing. It's ok not to keep up! :)<3

    It is most definitely okay, and when I mentioned it in the storytelling thread I was hoping that you'd see it and want to join. :)

    And I totally get the stressing thing. I've been in a group like this before on Tumblr that ended up failing because most of us got stressed out and were too busy with other things. So I'll come up with something more relaxed for us. :)

    whats a commune anyway i forgot?
  • AdamsEve1231AdamsEve1231 Posts: 7,020 Member
    This is such a fantastic idea, @CathyTea. I would love to join the Art Commune since there's one more available slot if that's okay with you all. I try to post regularly once-a-week on Saturdays on my main blog, Kassiopeia Fullbright's series, although I post sporadically (usually once a week or 2-3 times a month) on my other blog Livin'a'Simmin'Life, but I advertise on Kass's blog when I'm posting over at LASL and skipping a week at KCLKF.

    I hope it's okay that I join. I think my story falls outside the norm since it's a long-term story series following the same character. I hope for new readers that they can catch on if they jump in. I don't know though since it's a series, although backing up to 2.0 gives a good overview of what was missed in Part 1 and my character bios probably help.

    If I don't fit in the Art Commune, stick me in the Literary Long Haul, since Kass's story is long.
