B7 Writing Community 
26th-Sep-2009 02:51 pm
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?

It's an interesting idea if the volumes are low enough to handle. I'm not sure I could commit to being involved all the time.

I know I haven't been writing much lately, and I think it goes with my lack of self-esteem in the last 18 months or so. I've written for ficathons in that time but tend to veg out otherwise and read or do other stuff. I must try to get back to it.

We'll be glad to have you. Once we get a few more people, we'll start having some discussions about how many we want. Not too many but enough to have activity.

I'll have to see how it goes. I don't want to feel I have to in effect do betas or editing a lot. I might watch at the start to see how it's working.
