Basic Information

So, you've happened upon this lovely community, however you are very confused as to what the point of it is and why it is here. Here, you may find some answers.

WHAT IS BREAKAWAY?
Breakaway is a community dedicated to people who enjoy writing, whether to have their work published, or merely for the joy of writing. Here, you can post links to your stories or poems and share them with other people. Every month, we will feature a 'Writer of the Month' someone who has shown incredible talent and/or dedication to the art. It is also my goal to begin some challenges and battles for the members of Breakaway to compete in, matching their writing skills against those of another member. A key cornerstone to this community is just that: community. Here, we will work to encourage each other and help other writers get past writer's block. Tutorials and notes of encouragement will be posted often, and you will have the option of posting your story for critique from other members.

WHERE DID YOU GET THE NAME?
break-a-way [breyk-uh-wey]
1. An act or instance of breaking away; secession; separation
2. A departure or break from routine or tradition
The title breakaway wasn't merely chosen for its unique sound, nor was it chosen because I, the administrator is a great fan of Kelly Clarkson. Rather, I selected the name because it represents stepping away from what is tradition. As writers, we constantly have to come up with new and compelling ideas, ideas that no one has ever heard before at the risk of our story being called a cliche. Here at breakaway, we strive to reach new levels of creativity, thus breaking away from the traditional plots and ideas used in stories, and coming up with our own.
