Submitted storyline.png This article covers a writing guideline!

Writing guidelines are utilized by the writing department to create content in a consistent and agreed upon way. They contain information how specific types of writing content should be created and explain why the writing process is approached in this specific way.

This article explains how new writing content should be created and how existing writing content should be revised.

Food for discussion

These guidelines are only food for further discussion at this point.

What does set in stone mean?

  • Set in stone means that a writing element has been agreed upon and prolly won't be changed unless you come up with very good arguments and are willing to flesh out an alternative proposal for the writing content in question
  • We assume for now that only the aspects outlined in the Creative vision article are set in stone and that pretty much everything besides that is up to discussion
