    Okay, so I'm sure many of you aren't sure exactly what to post and what to do in here.

    Well, simply put it is a place for writers to commune and showcase their own works.

    The general discussion can be anything writing related, from markets, to plot problems, to advice, anything really.

    The original work is the place for you to post writing of your oen that you'd like people to critique. People are encouraged to return the favor. If someone comments on your piece, go back and comment on theirs, this makes it much more likely for every piece to get a response. Another thing..."It's great!" doesn't show any effort or helpfullness. Go on and point out what can be improved, what you liked, didn't like or any mistakes you might have seen. The more effort you put into your critiques the more you'll get out of them.

    Writers' workshop is a place where you can discuss your ideas, form them and polish them up. Or you can start writing challenges and the such.

    If anyone has any question regarding any specifics feel free to PM me.

    Will it be a problem, if I would just make some objective chritique without writing? Because, I have an own story, but it is in German, so... I don't have time to put up a second story...
    But it's cool, that there'll be an own house for it^^

    That wouldn't be a problem at all, we could always use more critiques!

    Just jump on in!

    Hey guys, getting into my last two days of school and finals are killing me. That's why I'm not on these last few days. I'm like that on my other site at the moment as well, so don't think I ditched you. :D

    *blushes* Why thank you, I'm glad you guys are into it. I just hope to get more and more people in here to bolster the activity.

    I had deviantArt, but I got rid of it because I didn't find I was getting honest feedback at all. Everything was "OMG! That's great!". I couldn't stand it. But to each his own...

    Look forward to it, and to everyone who has stories up at the moment, which I haven't gotten to, then rest assured my last day of school and graduation are tomorrow. So I will be critiquing once summer hits. :D

    I write in Dutch so I don't think I will place any excerpts here. I've got one book published in 2006 and I'm working on the second one since a year.
    Maybe I'll put my teaser online again (I deleted it from Youtube a while ago)
