:bulletgreen: Note: The group icon now is only temporary. The official one is currently being made! The group is also still under construction, but is opened to the public. We're looking for more contributors to help out as well! edit: still in the making! sorry for its tardiness!

This is Jenny/Starija

As you may have noticed, this writing group is not entirely new. However, BRTennant, the founder, has only just recently appointed me a co-founder position (and strawburdeath as well).
Despite our efforts, we are still low on members and need all the help we can get! If you active members are able and willing to, please support us and advertise our group so that we can gain more popularity. The admins here will work hard to keep this going as well! We will aim to upgrade Kakikotoba into a Super Group.

:bulletred: NaNoWriMo
Guys, what do you think about the group holding a program where we promote the National Novel Writing Month event? We will be rounding up as many prizes and points as we can possibly get so that we may award Premium Memberships for NaNoWriMo winners and/or participants. BRTennant plans to get these PMs through discounts on deviantART.
Just throwing that idea out there. It might not happen this November, but yes, this group plans to stick around for the next oncoming years and we hope you writers will stay with us too.

Our First Contest!
Hello everyone and welcome to Born of Mental Soil’s first contest! Since this is the first contest we’re hoping to gather a lot of attention from artists and writers alike. Thank you all so much for your support and best of luck to each and every one of you!
:new:Updates::new: ONLY ONE MONTH LEFT! Now is the time for everyone to start getting serious about their entries. We only have 4 art entries and 1 writing entry so far. We need at least five in each category. We can do it! I'm sorry I haven't been on much to update this place but I will be as soon as I get internet back to t
This is the big one!Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to announce our next contest!
Scratch That!
What the hell is a "scratch that?"
An excellent question! This is the biggest thing this group has ever done. It will be 5 rounds of tournament style writing, with varying themes and writing styles! Each round will last 2 weeks! (Dates will be posted further along in this journal.)
Anyone can enter! We're trying to make this as big as possible, so members, non-members and their dogs may enter! Bare in mind, however, that the very first round will be an audition. Only 50 people will then be selected to go through to the competition, so make sure you write to the very best of your ability!
At the end of every round, 5 people will be eliminated. We will celebrate the best poet of that round by giving them small prizes.
That sounds awesome, but what's in it for me?
Prizes, my friend. Riches beyond your wildest dreams, fame and glory.
No, I lied. Here's what is actuall

Kind of into the NaNo idea. Despite the fact that the two times I tried it, I failed. First by half, second by...24000?

I know, but it's so time-consuming! I think I'll try with my friends.

Yes and with school and life in general it's a hard thing to accomplish
