Writers' Chat

Stuck, struck dumb, or blocked? Inspired, on a roll or tearin' it up?

Is your latest accomplishment writing a single page, finishing the 265th revision of your book, or just making the commitment to writing?

Whatever your state of mind, this group is for you.

Whether you are passionate about inspirational work, how-to's or memoir; excited about graphic novels, YA or sci-fi; focused like a laser on literary fiction, poetry or mysteries-- we're here to talk about what's on your minds and to celebrate your steps.

Bring no pages-- just your desire to connect with and support other writers.

    Sounds good, Sergio. I'll bet with our diverse group we will get input worth its weight in gold.

      Alright, we'll still vote on it cause I want to collect a variety of topics for future use. My vote is still going towards "what methods work best for researching a story?" But we will eventually discuss all topics suggested at future meet ups, we could even discuss the second most voted on topic if we finish the first one faster than we think. Sound workable?

    I'm curious does this meetup usually have a topic/led discussion? I've only been to one chat so far.

      Since I've been attending writer's chat, "yes" it does normally have a topic announced on this page. However, it looks like i'll be coordinating again this month (since I just found out that my schedule permits it go figure). So as I was conversing with Tom Alexander below, any suggestions for a topic are welcome. What have ya got in mind Iscah?

    Hi guys,

    What's the topic this week?
    If there isn't one, how about "how to do research for historical fiction."

      Was just chatting with Cheryl and I was going to seemingly have everyone suggest a topic and then vote for the one to chat about this month. But now that you've mentioned it, how about, "how do we research for storytelling?" or "what methods work best for researching a story?" I like your topic but I was just wanting to broaden it a bit to include those not doing a historical piece. Sound alright?
