The Writers Circle / Happy New Year

The Coffee Shop / Signing off
« on: December 29, 2017, 04:51:32 PM »
Hi Circle Friends,

I want to thank you all for your contributions to the MWC community, and let you know I'm turning in my moderator stars. My online time outside of real life work is limited, and the current situation is such that there's not much I can do to help here. I've decided that it's time for me move on. 

Over the years I've come to love this place and our interesting cast of characters. You're a lovely bunch of writers and poets. I'm sad, but it isn't the site that was great, it was always the community and you folks. The site is just an address.

I intend to continue whatever admin chores I can for a bit to allow the owners time to acknowledge my resignation and turn off my access.

Happy writing, and I hope you all find the best writing forum for your needs and that we all meet again.

My best,

Hey, folks. Just want you to know that we're not ignoring all those spam posts showing up on the welcome board and elsewhere. Something is up with the zapper, and while the posts have been removed, they still show up on the board lists.  :-\

Hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

Writers Wanted! / Clarkesworld accepting submissions
« on: October 14, 2017, 01:55:03 PM »
Hey, Sci-Fi  writers, polish up  your stories and submit!

Per a FB post by Editor Neil Clarke - "Clarkesworld's inventory is a bit on the low side at the moment. If you write SF/F short stories, now would be a good time to send us something. "

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.  ;)

All the Write Questions / How important is that first line?
« on: December 30, 2016, 07:36:04 PM »
I think the importance of the first line of a book is a modern issue.

Used to be we had more patience with stories. Nowadays, people have Facebook and snap chat and quick one line summaries of news and life and everything. Is this going to change the way we write? Hopefully, true readers will still be engaged and stay with a book, but I do think a hook/grab is becoming more and more important as the collective attention span wanes.  :-\

What do you writers think?
