Hello all,

I was thrilled when the initial response to this forum was so strong, but people are not posting here lately. Can you please take a moment to respond to the following poll?

Thanks.

Cheryl

It's just been really wacky, with a challenging workshop and being in edits for the book coming out in July and writing the next one and that whole writing-to-earn-a-living thing. I've been MIA from a lot of places -- but hope to come back and hang out here soon!

I would definitely say time is a big factor - that and as you start getting more serious about writing you gravitate towards different types of writers. I'm also not big on posting or reading forums, mostly because if I read something I'm generally reading to learn. It's hard to have that kind of learning in forums.

Actually, I think this is the only writing forum I belong to anymore.

While I enjoy the goals section, that's really the only area of interest for me (I'm sure you've noticed from storycrafters).

Hope this helps!

Time is the biggest drawback for me. I'm trying to do too many things. I'm cutting back on book reviews. Then I've edited two forthcoming stories and have two WIPs. I want to post here, but get busy with other tasks and the day is gone before I know it. I also spend lots of time taking hubby to treatments and doctors and giving shots and ... But I think I'll work on a schedule to improve my organization. Yeah, good luck with that. Will give it a shot. Laughing

Hi Cheryl,

I think for me it's the time factor. I love the way you have set out the forum but if I don't get a message from you, my mind is so full of stuff I can't even remember it is here. When you send me a reminder, though, I try to make an effort to come and participate. Like now. :-)

Thanks for the input ladies. Honestly, when I began this forum, I hoped it would serve more as a place to motivate aspiring authors, but I was thrilled when so many published authors joined.

We'll see what happens.

The project I'd planned for the forum hasn't materialized yet because the other participant hasn't got back to me. I will start it going myself when the April VBT is over and I have time to think about it.

Thanks for the heads up, Chris. I can also post this information on the blog once you're ready.
