Re: Writer's Group

Thanks for the headsup, I'll check out yahoo groups, I'm not really game for a face-to-face group. If no one's interested not a big deal, figured it was worth asking.

Writer's Group

Hey, So not sure if this is the appropriate place for this but I figured what the hell. I'll cut right to it: I was wondering if anyone would be interested in starting a virtual writer's group (if not no harm no fowl).

Re: Stuck with Plot vs Character and character development

Thank you guys for your input. I downloaded some in-depth character questionnaires and hemmed and hawed over my development of them. In the end I needed to add a few more scenes in between the plot point (event where actions felt forced) and previous plot point (fairly near to the beginning). I thin...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hello, my name is Ben but I usually just go by B. I'm kind of new to the boards, I have a few scattered posts, and I did enter last quarter (and this one) but it has taken me this long to say hi!
