This is a writing community, primarily for in-the-moment progress reports, discussion, and support. The aim here is to share as little or as much as you want about each day's writing and to gather active writers together so that we can take heart from each other's writing progress.

This community is open to every writer, whatever you are writing, however frequently you write, however much you write at a time, and whatever you want to share about your writing. If you are writing something right now, you are welcome!

The general format will be daily (more or less) posts in which everyone is welcome to talk about what they've been writing that day or in the past couple of days. Word counts are welcome. Small comments like "Still working on the scene I've been working on" are welcome. Griping about difficult things going on with your writing is also welcome. Large comments about any writing revelations you've had, goals you might have, how your process is working, etc. etc. -- also welcome.

Don't worry about being inconsequential or repetitious -- sometimes you keep having the same revelation in different ways, and that's okay! Sometimes you've got a difficult scene and have to keep just plugging away at it. Sometimes the same gripe comes up more than once. Sometimes you have the same word count over and over again...well, maybe not exactly, but you get the point. This community is about right now, whatever is going on with your writing now -- anything you have to report is welcome. It's all part of the process. If you're writing (or editing, or working on writing in any way) this is a place to talk about it.

(If you're writing, but not very frequently, you're definitely very welcome to come talk about your writing whenever you've written. There's absolutely no frequency requirement. If you're not writing right now, but plan to, feel free to join / hang around / lurk / whatever, but keep in mind that the primary purpose of the community is to talk about current in-progress writing.)

If you get here and there's no post up for today yet, please make it yourself. (If you decide to wait for me, there are times in my writing when I don't want to talk about it, so it might be a while. Please don't hesitate about making a post yourself.) The top level post doesn't have to be anything fancy -- in fact, if you prefer to put your report or discussion in the comments, just put the date in the subject and make a blank post.

Alternately, if you'd like to make a top level post to introduce yourself, for discussion of anything at all related to writing, etc. etc. please do so. This community is meant for anything you want to do (as long as it's related to writing).

(Short, outside the cut summary: reply to the daily post with whatever you want to say about your recent writing, if there isn't already a daily post, make one yourself.)

And I think that covers it. Welcome to the community, please jump in.
