List of People Willing to Help: Go there first if you're looking for help!
The Thread Directory
We here at Author Support have a common goal, and that goal is to support and help out any author that comes our way. A simple task often made to look complicated by the sheer number of threads and people we have. Often times, though, getting help is as simple as rifling through our threads. More likely than not, you'll find just the thread containing the information or service you need.
As it is our purpose to help any author with any conceivable problem, we have well over fifty threads*, all designed and fitted to specific purposes or services often required of authors. From finding ready-made OCs, to guides on how to create your own character, to dialogue, and story ideas. Nearly every subject of writing is at least touched once. We even provide things such as editors, proofreaders, critics, and reviewers.
Of course, we can't help someone who isn't willing to help themselves, and no matter how easy we make it to find the information you need, some effort is required of you to at least find the information. Usually, this is as simple as leaving a comment in a thread, or even just browsing through some already-made comments.
Another purpose of our group, besides helping you as an author, is to be a friendly community to all who come our way. Around here, everyone is treated as an equal, and commenting and conversation amongst members is encouraged. Most of us are nice, patient people who would be more than willing to help you out or just have a conversation.
Browse around, take a gander, do as you will to make yourself comfortable. If ever you have any questions, feel free to message any of the admins. We're more than willing to answer your questions and help you out!
*The thread counter next to the message board is wrong; we actually have 56 threads, half as much as is listed.
This is where you go if you want to find editors and/or proofreaders and/or pre-readers.
Here, once you have published your story, you can shamelessly promote it to the world!
Wanna join mass collabs? Be part of large teams? Perhaps you think it would just be fun to work with others? The Collab Cage is the place for you!
Perhaps you are an Admin. Perhaps you are not. Perhaps you want to be an Admin. Whatever the case, this is the group for you. Talks abound about how to deal with being an Admin, dealing with or starting up a group, and interacting with other groups!
