The Scribosphere website is being thoroughly revamped at the moment in the hope of establishing it as an online screenwriting workshop. It's in the early stages of development so if you have any feedback, queries or even donations, then mosey on over to their site and check them out.
There's been a lot of talk about blogs/websites recently, it seems, and the advantages/pitfalls of the hobby, and whether to post anonymously or under a pseudonym or with your real name.
I've just done my Writers' Guild article on the subject, and am attending the Websites for Writers event on Thursday. Phill has some good words to say on the benefits of using your real name, here.
Pillock, prompted by Jason, decided to shed his nom de plume and reveal his identity (hello Andy!). And Miss-Cellany is doing some MA research about writing blogs (why we do them and what we get out of them), so leave a comment if you can.
Before I started blogging, I thought to myself: "is it a bit naff? is it too geeky?" and I was a bit reluctant. Naturally, I'm very pleased that I started. It's been a pleasurable distraction from the often stressful day-to-day grind. There's definitely a great sense of community and camaraderie, and it provides useful contacts and information for aspiring and professional writers alike.
