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). We could use slack to post work and comment and critique, maybe try to get a new ...

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...

Stuck with Plot vs Character and character development

I did a quick search through the forums and couldn't find anything so I apologize if I missed something and this is semi repeated but I'm looking for some input because I'm about ready to....you know...bash my head into a wall. I'm about 17,000 words into a novel (I know not that far) I have one mai...

Critique Exchange 4,600 words

Hey everyone. So I read the rules and I think I'm not doing anything wrong, apologies if I inadvertently do. I have a 4,600 word science fiction story that I am debating entering in the contest or not. I recently (following several rejection letters on said story) rewrote the majority of it and trie...

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! It's the introvert in all of us I swear. Anyways, thought I would finally say hello. I just graduated fr...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 32

I wrote if for QDSF at Lightspeed, so I wanted to sub there first, and that window closes at the middle of Feb. Would I get it back in time? If the QDSF is handled the same way Adams handles the rest of Lightspeed you will hear back within two weeks. I've had several stories rejected from Lightspee...
