A good many young writers make the mistake of enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope, big enough for the manuscript to come back in. This is too much of a temptation to the editor.
Ring Lardner (1885 - 1933), "How to Write Short Stories"

This community is intended to be a writers forum. A safe haven where we can chirp when our writing is going well and rant when it's not.

It is to be a place where we can simply share the trials and tribulations of writing with others who will understand and support us.

It's been created as a "closed community" to ensure that it will be that safe environment.

Joining is pretty easy though--just write a quick email to the address above explaining what you write and why you want to join the community.

The only thing I was fit for was to be a writer, and this notion rested solely on my suspicion that I would never be fit for real work, and that writing didn't require any.
