Welcome to The Writer’s Chat Room

January is The Art and Craft of Novel Writing Month at the Writer’s Chatroom



The art of fiction does not begin until the novelist thinks of his story as a matter to be shown, to be so exhibited that it will tell itself.”

The Art of Fiction – Percy Lubbock

If no one is in the chat room visit our posts pages and come back at our regularly scheduled times. 7PM ET on Sundays and 8PM ET on Wednesdays

The Writer’s Chat Room has been around at least since the days of NetScape, WordPerfect and FrontPage. We have changed our look, our leadership and or regulars. We continue to evolve but one thing remains the same. We are friendly, supportive people with all levels of experience in writing. We meet twice a week, year-round.

You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter

Navigating the Online Writers Chat Room

Click on the tiny icon in the lower left corner of the chatroom Text Area. A dropdown list will let you select your activity status.

  • Available
  • Idle
  • Busy
  • Offline

You may also Mute the Sound, here.

Selecting Offline takes you out of the Chatroom.

Changing Your Chat Room Name

The room assigns you a random name. You may change this name by Clicking on the Round Icon with the First Letter of Your Random Name.

Use the same Drop Down Menu you used to select your activity Status to change your Randomly Assigned Name.

At the top of the drop down, you will see your ‘not’ name and a tiny pencil. Click the Pencil to Change your Name. Then Click the Sign in as a Guest.

Just like that, Welcome To The Online Writers Chat Room.

You may Private Message in chat by clicking on the person’s name in the room list, a magical drop down at the upper left of the room’s frame labeled “participants.” A new chat window will appear. Some kind of blinking or notification will alert you to any messages being sent to you.
