Our weekly chat sessions seem to be getting slightly more people in the last few weeks. Since people ask for topics from time to time, here's a place where people can brainstorm on ideas. Something easy to summarize in a short sentence, please.

Chat topics do not need to be anything like a Stack Exchange question; anything goes, let's just keep the ideas related to writing somehow. You can be silly, or serious, or a little of both if you like.

Let's see those fertile imaginations!

Edit: Here's the current schedule of events in our chatroom.

    I'd just like to say I'd like to see topics that provoke discussion, more than a round-robin of opinions. Not even necessarily writing-related - anything that gets us talking and getting to know each other a bit better would be really nice :) – Standback May 2 '12 at 21:58

What fiction do you like to read for pleasure?

Bonus points for introducing cool stuff other people don't already know.

  • Any chance to tell you all what I like sounds good to me, that's my favorite subject. – Nathan C. Tresch May 4 '12 at 13:41

  • How to get to know your characters? How does everybody else do this? How do you know when you're ready to write them?

Music while writing: Yes or no? Why?

What's your "throw across the room" book? (the book that you started reading and then threw it across the room, shouting, "I could write better than this!")

  • I -so- have one of these. It was unreadable garbage and I have no idea to this day how it ever made it into print, let alone a movie. – Jed Oliver May 7 '12 at 1:20

    Eragon or Twilight? :) – Lauren-Reinstate-Monica-Ipsum May 7 '12 at 9:55
