Everyone has stories to tell, and in this age of easy self publishing with virtually no mandatory expense, more and more stories are out there to be feasted on! That’s awesome! But it comes with a dark side…
It used to be you had to be a good writer to get published, or pay a vanity press and store boxes of your books in the basement. Now, with self published books on demand from the mighty amazon and others, you can get almost anything published, having only to meet the most bare technical aspects of format. As for the quality of your writing, truth is, it is of little concern to amazon. That’s awesome too, because it gives almost everyone an even playing field. A chance. The down side? Let’s not sugarcoat it. The market is flooded with crap and an entire cottage industry is finding new ways to make sure it still cost you. Books, and readers, that look no further than an enticing cover.
I’m a member of several writing groups on Facebook and I find them lacking for the most part. If you want to exchange likes with pages you never visit, or proudly answer every question about how many words you need for a novel, it’s great. Hopefully we will get all those answers available here as well, without the need to repeat them ad nauseam. What we really want to do is share work and provide candid and honest feedback to each other in a controlled and objective manner. We want members that can celebrate the success of their peers and improve their own skills while helping others.
If writing is the desire that moves you to action, then consider a community that focuses on helping you become a better writer!
