Do you ever discuss writing ITSELF?
- Hi, all-
I haven't gone thru the archives yet, but I have been following posts now
for 5 months. I see the book signings, new books, and conferences discussed
in the main, but can't find any "writer's content." Is there another forum
for that I've missed?
By that, I mean I had originally expected to see lots of vigorous
discussion on classic writer's issues-
* Theme and characterization, plot
* Dialogue tricks
* Marketing an MSS-tips
* Story idea for different levels/ages
* Language, tone, viewpoint
* Fiction vs. Non-fiction: special issues
* Poetry for children
* Teen novels
* And all the tons of other stuff listed in the conferences
I recently started a Ragdoll cattery and am a member of a Ragdoll breeder's
group. They post 24/7 on vital content-birthing, disease/vaccine,
showmanship, bathing, litter boxes, new products, epidemiology of diseases,
writing contracts, and so on. I get everything I need to think about to set
up my small business there. I use this as an example of content that is
helpful in my cat craft.
For the zillions of writer's craft topics, where do you all go for meaty
discussion, debate, and camaraderie on-line?
