Let's Meet Up to Share Work, Learn Something New & Work On Our Group Project!

We had to push back our meeting a week due to the Mardi Gras Holiday and I hope everyone will use the extra time to write!  Please bring in anything you're working on and want to share with the group or choose from one of our writing prompts from the last meeting.  You can still print a copy of your story if you would like or email it out to the RSVP list for this meeting.  If you prefer to email it to me first then I'm happy to send an email blast to everyone for you!!

We will have a short writing lesson (TBA) and will discuss chapter 2 for our book project that Dawn is preparing.  We will determine whether to use present or past tense, discuss a timeline for the story, and work on a rough outline so bring your ideas.  I'm so excited to read the next chapter. 

At our last meeting, I requested everyone to think about tools that they have used to help them with their writing.  This can be a blog, website, software program, book or anything else that you feel has contributed to your art.  You only have to give me one thing but if you have a couple of favorites and cannot choose then send them both.  Please email these to me ASAP.  I will compile a list for the group and we will share and discuss briefly each item.

Happy Mardi Gras and as always, Happy Writing!

    The project is interesting and I can see the learning value of the project. I do have reservations about keeping characters and story line coherent while shifting authors every chapter. I don't see how it's possible to present a consistent development of character or theme. Having said that I'm certainly interested in being part of the process. This was my first meeting so I realize that I am not speaking from experience with the group however I do think the project, and learning value, would be enhanced by a more critical review of the work presented.

      Sal with this project there may be a time and place for ensuring consistency. I am thinking that with the newness of this project it is a great time to write with abandon. We are glad you have joined us. Vic

    Just a quick note. 83,000 words on their way to mentor at Vermont College of Fine Arts. Now, I can think about the next project unless my number is called at the next meeting. Thank you for your support. I am lucky to be around such talent.

    Sounds like you guys had a great meeting! Andrea and I caught up on chapters 1 and 2 and really like how it is developing. What are Simone and Ruth up to???

    Still working on my project and Andrea is still down for doing more prompts, so keep them coming! Hoping to catch you guys at the next meeting!

    We welcomed new members, Michelle, Sal, and Craig!
    We were treated with readings from Vic and Dennis (with the stylings of Michelle and Brenda.)
    We shared our favorite writing tools which I will post on the website and blog ASAP.
    We discussed our book project and what a super job Dawn did with chapter two!
    We assigned our next chapter for the project to Lee (wait did he volunteer?)
    As is becoming the usual, it was a busy, informative, and fun two hours!

    Sorry guys but I'm not going to make it tonight. I lost my wallet and don't want to chance driving that far without my driver's license. Like the start on the book and can't wait to see the next chapter.

    Hey everyone,

    This is a friendly reminder to share with me any tools that you have used to help with your writing! This can be a blog, website, software program, book or anything else that you think is useful.

    Please email these items to me if you have not already!

    I would like to compile a list for the meeting tomorrow night and share with the group.

    Thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
