I know there are plenty of places out there where you can join online writing groups. What I can't seem to specifically find are groups for brainstorming or checking out outlines.

I have an opportunity coming up in September that would push me more to the fiction side of things (I'm a technical writer, normally). I've done fiction writing, but never anything long-form. I've always wanted to do more fiction work, but my time has been finite.

I've done writing groups, but there's none down by me, and I've learned I have a low tolerance for going into the city during the week. Also, I don't want to put in all the effort to get to a group, only to find that most of the people can't seem to critique out of their chosen genre (as was the case in my last writing group).

So, any ideas?
