I know that many of you, beside keeping a blog are working on books, specifically novels, and like me find yourself easily distracted, lacking the support you might need/want from peers/friends/spouses, beating yourself up for feeling overwhelmed by the work ahead. (Because writing a novel is A LOT of fucking work.)
Anyway, I'm thinking about launching a writers-group-blog for writers who are drafting their novel(s) and would like the feedback and support of fellow writers as well as editors. (I have already spoken to my fave editor-dude eva and he's excited to be a part of this.)
I have no idea if this is going to work but I thought I would at least try. I think it's very important for writers to write and although blogging is fantastic, I thought I would offer the opportunity for all of you who have a story to tell, to tell it. A writer's community may be just what you need to get inspired.
Please email me if you're interested in participating: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for all of your emails and I wanted to clarify that if you are working on short-stories, non-fiction, ANYTHING you are more than welcome! Several of you have also mentioned that you have had a project in the works and/or have one you would like to start. Again, WELCOME! Basically the group is open to anyone and everyone who is serious about their manuscript(s), regardless of what stage you are at with it. The blog WILL NOT be open to the public as to keep people's work private.
I'm having computer issues today (Hi, BRAND NEW MACBOOK = SUCKS... might have to blog about this later to warn all my peeps that Mac, though very chic with cool programs and design makes utter shit.) Regardless, I will get back to all of you after I get organized with this. In the meantime, thank you for your emails and keep them coming!
You're all awesome and I'm really excited about this! High fives all around and many exclamation points!!!
