Writers?

Apologies if there is already a thread about this. I've recently moved to Switzerland with my wife. She's working for a local company while I spend the day working away at novels and works in progress. I was wondering if there are any other writers around? On a typical day, I find my way to a Starbucks (just such easy access to charging my computer and internet) and sit there for about 5-6 hours working.

However, I know that community will improve the process. Is there anyone working on novels that wants to sit and talk shop during the day? Anyone that wants to try and organize brief discussions, compare stories, etc. I'm just looking for any sort of discussion about reading and writing and wondered if there were people in a similar position. Thanks!

Not in progress yet, but I have been planning one for some time now.

Re: Writers?

I write, but I'm not in your area. Have you looked at NaNoWriMo to see if any participants in your area would like to meet up? This month is Camp NaNoWriMo so I'm sure those people tapping away to meet 50,000 words would be glad of some group inspiration!

Re: Writers?

I just started writing my first novel this month and know that when I get to CH next week I will have a lot more time to put into it. Just been getting a style nailed down by taking the preface around and talking about it with friends. Would be interested to get some professional input on what this has in store for me
