If you're serious about reviving this site, why not get links to writing blogs and ask those writing blogs to link back here? It gives this site exposure to the people we most want and increases the rankings in Google Search.

Hello everyone,
I am new to internet forums,and I am mainly trying to find people who are able to offer substantial criticism for my writings. I am also attempting to come out of a hiatus from writing but don't where to start. If there is someone who can impart advice on how to overcome writer's block then please do so.

Authors' Resource Centre / Where to Find a Critique Partner
« Last post by S-wo on August 14, 2018, 10:42:28 AM »
I was suggested by someone successful to get a critique partner for my novel and was also told that I need to be careful with getting a critique partner. I need someone who critiques plot structure along with character development. I finished my first draft of my novel and this second draft will have a lot of revisions. I think this first edit I want to just do on my own, but it was suggested that I start looking now. Where can I find these partners? I feel weird about having it through online means only. I don't know what the person looks like or their real name. It's just... it's just unsettling.

I think  there is a chance to get this place back to the great forum it once was. We have to help and try and do what we can. I am not sure why the "other new place" doesn't seem to be getting off the ground. So hey let's make this place great again eh?

Review My Script / Re: Opening scene.
« Last post by BaileyNeve on August 12, 2018, 05:12:06 PM »
Thanks for trying input. I'm curious, because you called it a storyboard, what you mean by that? I haven't explored the possibility of a novel. The end goal is to be a filmmaker, not just a screenwriter, though I do enjoy it immensely. I don't want to get in the habit of settling for something's just because it's easier to break into.

Thanks again for the input!
