    Do you know a good writting community?

    I find the sites like this and DA are very useful and fun. I really want to find a site like this for writing too, since I enjoy doing that as much as I like to draw. Does anyone know of any that isn't FanFiction.net?

    Elfwood.com is a great community where users post original art, fan art, and original fiction. Unfortunately, content is limited to science fiction, fantasy, and horror, so if your writing won't be approved for posting if it doesn't apply to one of those genres. Try it out!

    I made a topic like this a while ago and I didn't get many replies. Writers tend to meet in real life, not the internet. I think the only good place for this is the nanowrimo forums, they're useful even if you don't feel like writing a novel in a month.

    If you're interested in fantasy, then fantasy-writers.org is very helpful.

    I second Linzoy, check out the Nanowrimo forums. The Nanowrimo crew usually meets up about once a month here in toronto even when it's not novemeber.

    I would suggest read a lot of books, and practice writing.

    Get yourself a good writer's handbook.

    i used to go to chuck palahniuk's forums before it went all pay site. there was a lot of great writers posting their short stories, a writers workshop, etc. lots of great stuff... but its so mainstream now i wouldn't recommend it.
    sigh... back in the day it was the best writers community i'd ever seen.

    I frequent http://www.fantasyfic.com, a forum for mainly fantasy interested. It's a small forum with a helpful and friendly crew, not so grammar oriented but rather aimed at developing your writing style. I joined last august and before I knew it, I got so inspired I now have a manuscript for a fantasy novel almost ready to ship. Wish me luck in finding a good publisher!

    Thanks to all those who answered.

    I find it so strange that there aren't a lot of sites for writing. Sites like fanfiction.net are useful in the sense that it's incredibly easy to explore, so why aren't there more sites like that? The only reason why I don't go to fanfiction.net is because I don't like fan fictions all that much.

    I've been writing for a while and have been swapping stories with friends and such, but it would seem fun to have a online community, such as this community, to share writing ideas.

    Most of them build up out of other things. Locution is basically spun out of the Megatokyo forums.

    http://www.locution-zine.com/

    The creative writing board at Megatokyo isn't terrible.

    There used to be a forum that attracted younger writers at a website called Pokemon Village. It spun off into The Almost Published Writers Forum. Both are deader than dead things which are dead.
    Do you Mentler?

    I hear about a book called Story a lot. There are some writers in Holly wood that swear by it.
