I came across this site at http://www.mywriterscircle.com/ pretty recently. I certainly don’t consider myself a serious author of any kind, don’t get me wrong, but there is a ton of information over at My Writer’s Circle for professional authors as well as dumb old bloggers like myself. It’s a place to chat and get together with other writers and pick their brains for questions about grammar, storylines and really anything that might have to do with writing. You can post samples of your writing for critique (but be aware that you will get critiqued!), get ideas for new stories or articles as well as poetry and screenplays.
Apparently the forum has been online for two years now and I have never been there. I suppose with all of the millions of web sites out there that is no mean fete but with all the message board traffic they have I would think it be be a lot more well known than it is.
As I mentioned above one of the boards is there so that you can have your work critiqued and judge other peoples stories as well. There is quite a bit of amateurish fluff, stuff that I would write but I did come across this little gem. I thought it was pretty good anyway. Go check it out and tell me what you think.
