Yup, Writers for Pete’s Sake has a Skype account. Why would a writing group need a Skype account? Because our meetings are held on Saturdays and we’d like you to be a part of it.
#1) We do word sprints! Want to do a 15 minute sprint to get your mind started? We’ll join you! Do you want to do a 40 minute sprint to get that scene done? We’re here for you!
#2) We are NaNoWriMo participants! We’re supportive and would love to hear about your stories. Let us help you get to that 50,000 word goal.
#3) We’re here to answer your questions. If you need help finding that perfect word or help naming your characters (that’s always been my big problem), we’re here for you. If you have a question about plot or grammer, we can help you!
#4) We’re welcoming. We are an open group with diverse members. We’re like the planeteers: sundry, friendly, and when we get together we can call upon the god of writing knowledge. Well not really but we still form a great group.
#5) We’ll be your writing buddies. As a writer I’m always looking for more friends that can relate to my writer problems. While my “regular” friends are supportive, sometimes they just don’t understand what I’m going through. I love being a part of a group with the same interests. Do you feel the same way?
#6) We’re dedicated to helping other writers become better at the craft and stay inspired.
#7) We’re avid readers so if you want to talk about your favorite author or book, come chat with us.
#8) We’ll give you virtual hugs and will laugh at your jokes. That’s just how friendly we are.
#9) We’re determined to make connections with the far reaches of the writing community. As writers we all have something to share and something to contribute to readers and other writers. We want to tap into that knowledge and experience and help share it with the world.
#10) We’ll help you get to your goal. We all have personal writing goals (whether writing is just a hobby or our career). We’ll do our best to help inspire, help, and support you so that you can reach those goals.
So look us up on Skype. Our username is writersfps. Do us a favor though and send us an e-mail before you add us (firstname.lastname@example.org). Let us know your username and tell us a little bit about yourself: your favorite book, what you like to write, etc.
Looking forward to chatting with you!
