Writing Workshop

Here's a thought: how about a writing and criticism section on my message board? A place where people can stick up samples of their writing and have others criticise it? This would be an internet version of the kind of postal workshop, or folio, I was a member of for about 10 years...

Obviously I wouldn't be able to add lots of comments myself while I'm in Crete, but this could still be a useful resource for those who want to write.

H/T Guy Haley

Oh, and seeing as I nicked this idea from Guy I just went and bought his novella (a mere 65p) for my kindle.

Anything that encourages creativity is good in my opinion, so I'd say go for it!

I've personally found your pieces on writing advice and your own methods of writing very helpful and quite inspirational, thanks Neal!

Bob Lock said...

I'd be up for it :)

Taylor Preston said...

Absolutely, great idea!

Adam J. Keeper said...

help, advice and little bit of exposure... great idea, I'd post

Okay, I'll sort that out. I'll have to be limited word count etc and under a new title each time.

Okay, this is the page on my blog:http://freespace.virgin.net/n.asher/page79.html

Go to Writing > Workshop. I've left instructions there and a piece of my own you can all have a go at if you wish.

Whoop whoop my sponge is throbbing with mesmerisms. Oooh look pretty lights, what's over there? Cheese run away run away...

Sorry about that it's been building up all day and you got it... I feel better now.

Splendid idea, by the way. Read the other fellas blogs, very good. Any submissions other than ScFi?

I'll check it out soon Bob.

Any submissions, Graeme.

Neal Asher said...

Uh? What are you apologising for Graeme?

Graeme Finch said...

I posted a random, but for some reason it didn't actually go through.

For the best me thinks.

Yes, but not ready yet.
