awesome idea! i'm already workshopping a memoir and a sci-fi novel in my main group, so no capacity for book-length projects, but i'm into cheating on those projects with other work. >:)

Hi there! I just had to say hello because you are NorthernPixels and I am Northernwriter. Hello from Alaska! I actually met my current writing group from someone who did exactly what you did - posted an ad here! I think it’s great that you are doing this and wanted to wish you luck! If I get a chance I will check out the discord chat (though I don’t want to “cheat” on my main group lol.) Best of luck!

Hello from Canada! (though admittedly, I'm in the southern most part of the country). That's totally fair and understandable. I'm glad to hear it worked out for your group, that gives me a lot of hope. :)

Thank you for doing this! This is really cool. I’ve been looking for a group like this for emotional and creative support as I try to write a novel and then navigate the waters of traditional publishing. Anyone else working on a book?


I wouldn't really say I'm writing a novel just yet... I mean, I've written segments here and there, character sketches and such, but basically it's been incubating for a couple of years and all work towards it is in the very, very rough stages (and happens at intervals because I'm preoccupied with other things). I still have a lot to learn and have been trying to spend my time educating myself about creative writing and sharpening my skills in writing short (or rather very short) fiction for various contests.

How long have you been working on yours? I'm gathering it's your first...? I'd love to hear about your experiences thus far so feel free to reach out in a pm or perhaps we'll meet on this new server

So I had this idea running through my head as a result of NYCM — I was thinking about what I’d write about if I got historical fiction as a genre for one of the challenges. Well, I never got that genre, but the idea kept nagging at me to be written. So I started writing what was in my head, and that became the first two or three chapters. Then I outlined where I wanted it to go. I’m currently on chapter 19 but unhappy with it, so I’m stuck until I have inspiration to rewrite it. Once I get over that hump, I’m so close to being done, because I outlined 23 chapters. I started writing it, I don’t know, end of May, I think.

I did my first NYC competition with the 100 word micro-fiction and found the same as you with the quality of writing and peer feedback - hadn't seen that before in other online groups! So I’m keen to join the Discord group, I’m only doing short fiction though.

I have discord on my new phone. I'll join later. I only have it for family chat with my kids so I'm still new to the app though.
