I got this idea from another author, and I thought it was super freaking cool. So, here's the deal.
The last week of every month will be Open Pen Week on the forum. This is a chance for all of you other writers to share your stuff with each other.
The rules. Go to the forum and click on on Open Pen. Or just follow this link: http://www.network54.com/Forum/652758/. Once there, click "Post Now" to start a new thread. Post a snippet from one of your stories or novels (or hey, poetry's cool too!) of 500 words or less. If you post a snippet, you must comment on at least one other person's post too.
Have at it, people. Can't wait to read what you're working on!!
(Final note. This is meant to be a showcase, not a critique forum. To that end, when you comment, find something encouraging to say.)
