Welcome to the Creative Convention project index megathread!

The purpose of this thread is to create a central place for people to link individual project threads so that we can all benefit from consistent mutual critique.

The OP will also function as a repository of ongoing megathreads and resources.

Who can add links to this thread?

Anyone who has an active project thread in Creative Convention or the Dorkroom. That could be a short story or excerpt you're working on, a webcomic, a sculpture, a paludarium, or anything else you might conceivably post a standalone thread about in Creative Convention.

Should I bookmark this thread??

Yes!

One recurring challenge in Creative Convention is getting people to read outside of their bookmarked threads. The proposed solution was to create a project index thread so people would have a bookmarkable resource for new projects and undertakings.

General guidelines

  • While some discussion in this thread is fine, please take any feedback to the creator's thread so it's easier for them to keep track of.
  • Don't use this thread to link to posts in a megathread. If you want to link to a story you wrote for Thunderdome, for example, you would make your own thread, then link it here.
  • Don't post projects directly in this thread. Post a brief description and a link to your project OP.

Nice thread! I appreciate the work you put into it.

For my part I'm almost done with the first chapter of a webcomic called John Doe about two nerds with amnesia trapped in a computer simulation. I'd say more but I don't want to spoil the surprise! I'm updating every other week or so as I have the time to work on it.

this is a long and technically competent story doing an "advertising bad" riff, I thought it needed some more story juice to go with the well-drawn setting but would value other peoples' thoughts - am I being too harsh?

Hello! Sitting Here was kind enough to link it in the OP (very sweet of them ) but here's my link to my paludarium build. You know how a terrarium is basically a box of land and an aquarium is a box of water? A paludarium is the bastard hybrid child that incorporates both. Perfect if you like amphibians, although they can 100% stand on their own as art without inhabitants. (often more easily, actually)

I'm incorporating miniatures in mine too to turn it into a sort of fantasy dreamscape. This one is going to be a remote riparian scape incorporating a temple to a pair of vicious pale river-gods (aka my cute and kinda dopey aquatic frogs). Ideas for future builds include "Jurassic Park except with a cane toad instead of a T Rex," and "80s B-movie where random army men get lost in a hostile jungle with giant creatures when their vehicle breaks down." Check it out if that's the kind of thing you're into!
