For some writing practice, the February exercise is now up: The Kiss. Whether it's a kiss of love, or the kiss of death, show us a meaningful one in a scene! In Writing Exercises now.

What's the most unusual word you've come across lately, and where did you see it? Check out the Word of the Day thread in The Algonquin Round Table.

Since we're a forum for readers AND writers, we're happy to discuss wide-ranging reading topics in our new area, The Readers' Lounge, or talk about a particular book or series in our various genre-specific reading folders.

Aspiring writers often have questions when they're writing outside their immediate experience, so we've made their lives easier by splitting our former Research & Craft section into Research Questions and The Craft of Writing.

Now, if you need to answer questions about blood spatter, the care & keeping of chickens, or Castilian Spanish, you can visit the Research Questions section to ask fellow writers, readers, and the generally curious-minded for help with those sticky wickets without getting your historical fiction's dye recipe from a video game wiki.

If you're a writer, or would like to be, The Craft of Writing has discussions on all things to do with the craft of writing. Join in the Writing Exercises, request feedback on a snippet of your work in Critique Café, and join the Writers Workshop to exchange critiques of your work-in-progress. We have plenty of talented writers, including a number of published authors.

If you're a closet writer, too embarrassed to show your work to others, is the perfect place for you! Get feedback from experienced writers in a friendly environment - everyone had a first time, and lived to tell the tale...

Finally, if you want to talk about All Things Outlander (books, TV show, or both), you're welcome to join the discussions in the Diana Gabaldon section.
