Writers on Writing - Forums

There's a lot of really good forums for writers out there at the moment. While there are many sites that are dedicated to writing in general, there are also a large number of genre-based websites with thriving communities of like-minded authors. If you work in a particular genre it's probably best to find a specialized forum.

It only takes a few minutes to sign up for a forum, and there is usually no obligation to post. Users can browse through threads and comments from experienced and new writers, and of course add questions and thoughts of their own. Forums are also great for motivation, especially if you find yourself getting bogged down with a difficult manuscript.

Every now and then I will link to some good writing forums as I come across them. At the moment two of my favourites are Mythic Scribes and SFFWorld.
