For my writer flist friends. I wonder if there is enough interest in a B7 Writing community?
The purpose would not be to put pieces up just to have people read them purely for enjoyment. What we would do is commit to helping each other grow as writers by giving constant constructive criticism. Whether in terms of grammar/spelling, character development, whether things like humour/romance/action/etc are working, flow, consistency, etc. We would all make an effort to comment on each other's work. What we would not be looking for is "that's nice" comments for gratification but to give positive suggestions/criticism for growth as well as praise for things done well.
We might also want to explore things like writing exercises and helping and sharing with each other about the writing/creative process.
While I'd like to keep this B7 oriented, as there are other writing forums that are general, I am open to other ideas.
We're all learning as we go along so no need to be shy. We're not professional writers.
Is there any interest in forming this kind of community?
