FindAWritingGroup.com


 FindAWritingGroup.com is now officially up and running!

I've already got a few FAWG links set up.  If you'd like to help, please consider doing the following:

- Start or join a FAWG Yahoo group in your state/country. 
It's a free to join/free to use service.  Add details of your writing group(s) to the relevant
FAWG link. If your country/state doesn't yet have one, consider setting it up yourself.

- Spread the word.
Please tell your blog readers and current writing group members about FAWG.com. If you’re feeling especially helpful, you could add a permanent link to
FindAWritingGroup.com to your blog’s sidebar (Home/Customize Journal Style/select ‘Links List’ (below ‘Customize your theme’)

- If you haven’t already done so, add your writing tip to the Wall of Wisdom.

- Lastly, please consider adding the site's blog, Write Around the World, to your Favorites (or RSS thingy). 
Over the coming months I hope to provide some great writing posts and helpful links there.

Thanks in advance for your help and support.  I'm particularly grateful to those folks who've already started spreading the word.

If anyone has any questions, please let me know.


Jon

I have a question: why Yahoo? Would FindAWritingGroup be opposed to other platforms? Like Livejournal?

I thought about LJ, but I figured Yahoo has a wider reach than LJ. Also, on a Yahoo group you can create seperate folders within the links section for individual counties within each country/state, which I figureed would be very useful.

That said, if there's a way to sort out the potential links problem, I can't see any reason why we couldn't have an LJ FAWG group for a particular country (or any other platform, for that matter).

What did you have inmind.

Well, I just have never used Yahoo before, so I started thinking: if I wanted to participate in this, I'd have to start. I'd have to figure it out, create a new account, remember another password, bitch and moan like an old lady... etcetera. So I thought I'd ask.

There's probably not a lot of writers from the Netherlands anyway, so I'd finally end up joining a group of Germans and Brits and that's fine by me too.

If we went with LJ, folks who don't have an account here would have the same problem, I guess.

As for there not being many writers in the Netherlands, one of the potential good things that can come from FAWG, is that a lot of folks might discover they're not as alone in their neck of the woods as they thought - of course, whether I'm right about that remains to be seen ;)
