What kind of writing are you interested in? Tell us about your work and what you want from this group.

Short stories, memoirs, screenplays. People encourage me to write down my humorous stories, and I have published a few. I have found my voice, but I would like help in refining & polishing before publishing. So basically.... I need critique and feedback.

What workshops interest you; for instance, technique or motivation or appreciation events, writing skills or marketing?

All of the above. I've yet to attend a workshop on publishing/marketing/getting an agent for writers that isn't ephemeral, elusive, evasive, or just downright abstract.

Are you willing to share your original work and participate in critique sessions?

Yes. Constructive criticism is a good thing.

What point are you at in your writing goals and this coming year what would you like to accomplish?

Writing has been on the proverbial back burner since Hurricane Gustav rendered me homeless and changed my priorities. Now rebuilt, I'm ready to get back to it!


I have crashed a motorcycle into a concrete wall, worked the oilfields of South Louisiana, trained two dogs in three languages, eluded matrimony twice, and view writing about my dysfunctional family as both therapy & retribution. I lie about my age.

What Bella F. is saying about this Meetup Group

I enjoy the casual, relaxed atmosphere and good, much-needed feedback on works-in-progress! One of my "characters" even showed up and participated in the meeting last night! Although every genre isn't my particular cup of tea, I do find it infinitely interesting to discover what others are working on. Rush-hour traffic on the bridge has been such a problem for me, I may have to adjust my work schedule to leave earlier. I don't like arriving late!
