Discussion topics are a good idea.

Perhaps we should try and revive the Facebook page. The most recent post is over 2 years old.

Before I approach any of my contacts, I'd probably need to see a reasonable level of interest. I'd hate to invite them here and only have a couple of people turn up. Be warned, they lean heavily to the fantasy/SF space.

Who controls the Facebook page? I don't have access to it.

I agree, no point getting them on if the level of interest in not enough to make it worthwhile...

A guest would be cool! I'd love that!
I try to pop in most weekdays and see what's happening or what new posts I can contribute to. I've really been loving being a part of this forum lately!
I think time constraints are everyone's struggle and probably the reason a lot of people come and go or don't log in for a while.
I needed a hero so that's what I became!

Thanks for the feedback :)

I (more than most) understand about lacking free time. Hard to make having a forum "worthwhile" if we don't have members who all regularly contribute... It does not even have to be writing related all the time, it is just disappointing to log on and see no new posts.

I think we're running the challenges and have even shortened them to help with time constraints (reminds me, I should explore setting up voting for the character challenge). The problem seems to be, people are visiting, but not contributing some writing because of a variety of reasons, they're busy, they're working on their own project and and in that headspace or they're shy. Probably heaps of other reasons too. I think we're doing most of what we can. The discussions and guest post are a start.

By the way PaulE, I'm keen for a guest chat too. They're are certain days I have rehab or speech booked in but otherwise I'll be there!

I think we need to push these more in 2018, in the past they have really made the forum active :)

I think that's a good idea. They're great exercise for the brain.

What made me join up was being able to read what other members are writing and help them develop as writers, given I have little time to write myself.

I struggle with challenges, only because I'm so focussed on my WIP that I generally don't have time for anything else.

That's a good reason. I like the challenges as I'm not really doing much other writing due to a combination of lack of time and lack of motivation, I seem to work much better with an imposed deadline. (I should probably set some of those for myself.)
