Writer's Retreat

Post by Kitsune » Wed Jun 03, 2009 9:07 pm

Hey, just a little shameless advertising here...

Late last year I started up a writers forum, with the idea that writers talking about their works, their hopes, their fears, and their blocks, would help all of the writers on it improve, whether they were writing for fun, profit or any other reason.

Recently, I haven't had much traffic on the site, thus I've been trying to garnish some more members.

I wanted to mention it here in case any of you were interested. I'll mention that I'm now running a worldbuilding course that literally will only take 15 min of your time a week if you decide to take part. ( [-o< )

I'd love to see some of you there!

If I can get a reasonable following, I'll also be offering occasional contests and prizes on it, whenever I have money and come up with a reasonable contest idea... (suggestions would definately be appreiciated if you have any).


As well, :oops: Julnowrimo is coming up. July Novel Writing Month. While it's not as big a thing as Nanowrimo (even to me!), I will be partially taking part, since I'll be working on the rewrite of my novel during that time. IIf any of you are taking part, or are interested in finding out more, just ask and I'll send you some info on it.

lol Kistune I think I stuffed up on your forum site.
Was I supposed to write a guest post then register? As I'm unable to register then write a guest post under my handle.

You know I would be happy to do so, cher... but right now I'm flooded work wise and tryin to get ready to move and deal with corporate politics. I will definitely look into it after I get settled, but will likely have missed the July run... or at least most of it.

Sorry, I originally put on that restriction. Since it was supposed to be a very personal site, for friends and friends of friends, I had added the feature so that people couldn't simply enter to post WoW stuff and other spam. Please, simply register, and then I'll accept the registration. After that you'll be able to post and see the forum with no restrictions.

I think I may have to change that restriction though... I think perhaps people found the "exclusivity" of it rather daunting and wouldn't sign up... #-o

Put up something to protect the copyright of people, and suddenly no one wants to visit... ;) ](*,) :lol:

Sorry, edited to add...

Arcanum, I've already accepted your registration... Stop by and introduce yourself.

Runewolf, don't worry... When you have some time, I'd love to see you there! Speaking of which, I have to find out how your trip was sometime since it seems you're back online again.

If you love to write, and would like to chat with other writers we'd love to have you. Stop on over, sign in!

I do check every day to activate new registrations, and after that you'll have access to every board. You won't be able to enter most of the forums in you're not a member... A bit of protection for those writers who are wary of putting their writing online and copyright issues.
