I've gotten serious about writing for the past year and I find it's getting frustrating not being able to talk about writing to anyone. I'm a very shy person so I would prefer not to do a writing group in face to face. I would love to meet people online who would want to talk about writing and their works. I tried Nanowrimo but it's more about the word completion than community. How did you create your circle (or few friends) who help you discuss writing and your book(s)? Did you do it online and meet people that way? I've sent out an invitation for this on a few forum sites for critiquing partners but no one has responded. I would love to know how other people did this as there are so many writers but it's surprisingly difficult to meet any.
