    I was really looking for a site like this, butthe true purpose was to find fellow writers I could talk to. I am really wanting to be a good writer and a successful one and I've found I learn the most by talking to fellow writers.

    I don't think I will show exact pieces but I will summarize, and write outside things not connected to my book that I wil want critiqued, like short stories and poems.

    yeah that sounds pretty cool, a collaberation of 3 begginer authors XD. I just don't exactly understand how we will do this,like we each take turns doing a paragraph or what??

    yeah probably, I always thought that there was a main author and the other author putched some of his ideas,but I don't like the sound of that

    yea, that sounds a little weird haha. maybe its like switch each chapter or MAYBE (this is just an example) if there were like a band of 6, and they all split up into groups of 2, then each person could do a certain group, or sumthin. just an example of a method of switchin off the characters, if that makes sense
