This is possibly a really dumb question, but since I know a lot of writers (who themselves know a lot of writers), I thought it might be interesting to ask some of them to contribute discussions of some sort about the art of writing to you guys (the young writers).

So there's a poll, but you might also leave a comment with suggestions, questions, etc.

It's not always best to hear about writing from published writers for me because what if the person published only one writing piece and then they think they know everything about writing. If that person was more experienced then I like to hear advice on writing.

Ronen -- honestly, most of the writers I know don't think about that. They only talk about what they've learned and what works in their experience. I get what you mean, though.

But it can be useful to see how other writers do it.

Actually I would like to hear their thoughts on writing, they might not fit my perception on the matter, but they also might give a good deal of guidance, and I never say no to learning new techniques, it is part of writing after all
