A group for the discussion of the written word. Though we'd like to see folks active in the industry, you need not be published or working in the industry to join in and ideally there will be help and motivation for those wanting to write. All that is required is a love of the written word and an interest in how it's done.
I just thought i would post that i am rather shaken by the recent death of harlan ellison. i read several obituaries and most of them mentioned his litigious and combative nature but also admired his writing. only one obituary said that his personality interfered with the quality of his writing. i disagree with that; they are two separate things. has anyone else read the obits and seen such an assertion, and do you agree with what you read?
