The inherent problem with our Nanowrimo efforts is that everything must be a question. The chat is spotty to say the least. Weirdly of all the stacks this is the one that seems to have the best community as far as I can see. But the community is, oddly, held back by the fact that this is expressly neither a community, in the social sense, or a forum. It's a Q&A.
The obvious answer to this has something to do with real names. So you could replace the infamous FB with G+ or something as they're apparently doing away with the need for real names but tbh I personally have no objection to people knowing my real name. My constant problem in life is that I am not a household name as an aspiring writer...
Anyhoo, I thought with Nano literally round the corner and the failure to worm our way into the Nano community in "official" mode I might suggest that a sort of social offshoot of the Q&A might be an aid in "selling" writers.se at Nano. It's not something I would suggest for all ses but it is certainly a suggestion I am making here because I sense a logistical gap in the communications between some enthusiastic contributors that a social networking group may go some way to filling.
Have I failed at "Hawk or Handsaw" or am I only mad when the wind blows southerly?
