For some writing practice, the September exercise is now up: another Ask Me Anything. Have your character answer questions, and ask questions of others. 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 our Research & Craft section.

If you're a writer, or would like to be, Research & Craft 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...
