Are there enough writers and would-be writers on permies to have a forum just about writing and publishing?

I'd come play.

I like the idea that it could encourage more people to write.

I think I'd especially like to see permaculture break into the fiction world more. Unfortunately I don't think fiction writing is my gift. Maybe such a forum would inspire someone who does have that gift.

looking around at what forums we have already, communication comes closest - but doesn't really work as a writers lounge.

So the next steps involve

.... finding a name (one or two words) for the new forum
.... finding content to put in it when made.

For the second one, we have a fair amount of content already.  If we could have 10 new threads about writing (maybe start them in Meaningless Drivel, I can move them to their new home later) or publishing, then I think we have enough content to make google love the forum.

That is if there is enough interest.

I'd participate.

National Novel Writing Month is coming up in November, so there's that to talk about.

I'll think about name ideas. At the moment I'm tired-out and all that comes to mind is something like Scribbling.

I've made a new home for writers - https://permies.com/f/351/writing

Everyone's welcome.
authors, writers, publishers
indie, new, want-to-be, and established.

Please come and start threads - we need lots of threads in there.

I would... I would like to find writers in several languages, to have a multilanguage sharing about all that is around living more naturally.

I have this blog http://balancefeeling.wordpress.com/ and I write in a language that is not mine! I would love to CO-WRITE!
My 1st goal is english spanish french... the last one being my mother tongue.
