Speaking of, I think we should think about the purpose of the Author's
Group.  Basically, as I see it, it's best when it's used for polishing
stuff up before it goes out.  Discussion really seems to belong here

Note that there are also pages for authors on the Wiki; I've been
consciously avoiding filling most of 'em in for people who are active,
so that they can do it themselves.

Personally, I'd say that the demographic it most easily appeals to is
college-aged; however, I'd also say that anyone who wants to write in
a comfortable, positive community where you can bounce ideas off each
other and get feedback on your stories should check us out!

Andrew "NO .SIG MAN" "Juan" Perron, if you like shared universes,
that's a plus.
