Do Writers Write? Not As Much As Most People Think.

Most people who don't write themselves or who don't know any full-time writers imagine that when writers spend five or six (or eight or ten) hours in their attics or garages or studies every day they…Continue

Come on people, let's get this thing rolling. I joined because I am on the slightly more active Atheist Writers group on Atheist Nexus.

There's a writers' group on TA, all right, Michael, but as you can tell, it has not been particularly active for quite some time. Maybe all the writers are off on their own writing wonderful things.

Good luck on your film project! I've done some screenplay work myself (for features), and I know what a challenge that represents.

Wow, I didn't know there was a writer's group. I've written for Canadian Freethinker and now I'm tackling for my first time (and quite unexpectedly) a documentary film (writer, director and producer).

I have totally fallen off from writing any fiction or poetry. I blame my schedule; I'm naturally a night owl, and my most creative time is in a pitch black room with nothing but a computer screen. For the past year, though, I have been doing the 9-5 routine and have to get up at six a.m. This whole day-job-thing totally sucks! If only I could make money off of staying up all night writing, lol. ;)

A contributor to this site posted a poem in the Green Atheists group. Maybe we could get some cross-pollination going? Have Green Atheists post their works as WIP here (for discussion, criticism, whatever) and maybe some of our writers here try their hand at Green-themed poems? Thoughts?

Or, you know, anyone posting anything? I want to read your stuff, people! :-)

Can I take a moment to cheer other members on to submit a WIP? You're among friends -- I believe and hope -- and I would love to read the work of some more of you. I could post another, but I already have posted a novel excerpt and a poem, and this is not "The McGee Show" -- nor even "The Fibber McGee and Molly Show". :-) You have my support! Go for it! And consider using the [WIP] notation for your excerpts.

Astute professional editors are crucial to the refinement and effectiveness of most published writing, fiction and nonfiction.

I am currently writing a story entitled, "Jump for Jesus" and yes it is as hilarious as it sounds. I'm planning on finishing it soon, maybe in a week or little less.
Comment by S S Tragus on January 9, 2010 at 9:43pm
SS, I have never come across (or heard of) any small press or literary journal that would consider a WIP posted to any writers' group (online or elsewhere) for feedback or criticism equivalent to publication.

That is good to read, Don. I'm not sure why I'm so nervous about posting creative works online. I by no means intend to discourage anyone else, if my fears are entirely unfounded, from work-shopping their work here.

Nevertheless, if we can rig something to make it a little more private still, I would feel more comfortable. I'll be watching this thread with interest, Joshua, to see if you can come up with something to integrate into TA for our purposes. I've been sitting on some poetry for a few years now that I wouldn't mind work-shopping a little more before finally submitting for publication.

more-or-less seamlessly into TA...

... out of respect. I'm also happy to do it all on my own (WIP for AW) and link to it, but I expect that this proposal would/could be read with (unintended) mutinous motives.
