    Skype?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Cheyenne, Mar 20, 2015.

    Hope this is the correct place to put this.

    I was wondering if anyone here had Skype and would be willing to chat on a semi-regular basis. (Weekly, perhaps?) Just to encourage/help one another through rough times and cheer each other on through the good. A group chat would be awesome, as well, not just looking for one on one.

    EDIT: My skype is cheyenne.trumbo, for the record.

    Skype is a good tool. I use it mostly to help aspiring writers if that is what you are looking for?

    We use skype to visit with the grand kids. It seems to me that you are also referring to a chat room. Where folks can just sit and visit. Several forums I frequent has them. They are available and free to forums so maybe that would work here as well.

    A chat room would be great, but they tend to be rather impersonal.

    @Lemex That is exactly what I am looking for.

    I'll add you when I get off night duty tomorrow. Skype chats can be great for helping the creative juices flow :)

    I personally don't approve of randomly handing out your Skype to strangers. I mean I'm sure this forum is fairly safe, but online predators can be lurking anywhere.

    My skype handle is thebusyape (it's a Shakespeare reference, if it sounds weird to anyone) and I hop on and am down to chat now and again.

    I recently signed up to Skype and my Skype handle is the same as my forum handle. I don't accept invitations to Skype unless made through the forum and for forum/writing reasons, but within that context, I'm cool with it. :)

    It would be kool to have something like a regularly scheduled writing circle with members on this site.
