Everyone needs a storm shelter from time to time. Maybe if for nothing else, just a pickle barrel to sit around with a few peers and toss out some old tales or gather fragments of sage advice.
That place now exists for writers.
Extreme Writing Now is open to all writers. Starting today, the EWN social network will be accepting registrations from any freelancer, poet, article writer, prose hound, and check kiter who is looking for a cozy place to hang with folks who will treat them as a friend.
We have one blog that everyone can post at, groups, and an exciting activity stream. The forums are still under construction, but they will soon provide a place where we can share information and seek help.
I guess I need to mention somewhere that membership is 100% free. No hidden tiers, no you-can-join-this-level-for-this-much crap.
The center of today’s opening gal is a 55 word fiction in the activity stream contest. All members who want to participate can post a 55 worder in the activity stream for other members to vote on via the LIKE button. The update with the most LIKES at the end of the day will win a brand new hardback edition of William Golding: The Man Who Wrote Lord of the Flies, a biography penned by John Carey.
The rules for writing 55 word fiction are simple and can be read [intlink id="404" type="post"]55 Word Fiction ~ This Masochist Loves It[/intlink].
