I wasn't really concerned about privacy.  That was Saint.  But that whole idea-stealing thing doesn't sound very fun.  Hmmm.

Even as I posted that I realized that nobody's going to be posting their stuff onto the site.  Just comments.  The works get distributed by email, right?

so... what did we decide in terms of what board to use? and who/when are the first ones being emailed? Do we have a comprehensive email list for that?

Ok, I'm making some decisions on this here. i hereby order Fell and SaintEhlers (wait, that's me) to email out their manuscripts. The entire thing. Then we'll work on them chapter by chapter. Anyone else can email out theirs to the group as well, but we'll do Fell and SE's "Chapter 1" sections this coming week. We'll hold a discussion here. Fell, you're also respectfully requested to establish a forum for the writing group. I don't care what we call it. The Twigs or something like that seems appropriate. First chat discussion will be on the 23rd at 8pm Mountain, that's 10 pm for us easterners via AIM.

OK?

I will create a forum tonight, when I get back from wherever I'm going right now. Will our first discussion cover the first two chapters of each book, or only one? Or more--we can do a ton of reading between now and the 23rd.

well, my chapters are kind of long. I only have 8, actually. So lets do one of each for the first one, and see how that goes. No problems reading ahead though.

If you have lots of chapters, Fell, we could do 2 of yours and 1 of Saint's.

Not a significantly huge number. We can just do one. I'll email it out to every address on SE's email.

Well, on the 23rd, being so close to Christmas, I will be in CA, and though my mom just got a new computer, I doubt that the internet connection will be any more reliable than it was before.

I'll try and get comments to you both before I leave on Saturday.
