    I just showed up for the last 30 minutes, but it was good, like always. Now, I"m waiting on y'all to send me some critique notes on the first draft of my manuscript, Destiny's Destiny. And thank you all in advance for helping me.

      I've already made some massive changes in 2 or 3 places. So don't be surprised if it looks totally different when you see it on Thursday night. I still want your feedback, in case you see something I don't.

      I don't remember who all got one, but I've got a 2nd draft ready to work on, if you'd rather be working on the updated version. Email me and I'll send it.

    I'm planning to leave the other meeting as early as possible, so I can get by here. I have a manuscript I need you guys to help me with, THIS WEEK. I value your input.

    I'm interested in attending but have a scheduling conflict. Does this group meet on a regular basis? I

      Yes, we meet every other Tuesday at 6:30 until around 8:45 or so. If you can't make the next meeting, try to come meet us on Wed. March 6 for our monthly birthday dinner. Perhaps we can help you with your conflict as many of us belong to several groups that meet on different days. Perhaps one of those days works better for your schedule.

    It is really hard to remember I can't be there on this night. I really, REALLY need some feedback on a project. I may have to leave the other meeting early and try to rush back to the library before this one is over. Pam - If I get that other item finished in time, I'll loan it to you on Monday at lunch, so you can give it a try.

      Stormy, we are there until 8:30 or 9, so if you come late, that's not a problem. Looking forward to seeing you.

    I will not be attending as I was just cast for a role in the play CEMETERY CLUB for April 5-13 at Broken Arrow Playhouse 1800 S. Main.

      Congratulations, Mistyrose. That's terrific. Can't wait to hear how it's going.

    Hi! I just found this group and I want to attend! I'm working on a book right now, it's short (just under 25,000 words) but it's my first finished story. I'll be bringing a copy, are there any requirements? Does it need to be double spaced?

    February 21, 2013

    • Pamala W.

      Formatting a first draft is however you want it, but a finished product must be double-spaced to be accepted by a publisher or agent. FYI - 20,000 to 39,000 words is considered a novella. But, to me, a story is a story, doesn't matter how many words. I love to read. Looking forward to meeting you.

      Our critiquing practices are very helpful. If you provide copies of what you are reading (8-10 pages max), then we will be able to not only help you with words, sentence-structure and the like, we will also be able to help with capitalization, grammar, and punctuation. A great book to help with formatting is Writer's Digest's "Formatting & Submitting Your Manuscript". This book helps you format not only your book/story, but your query letter and such to agents and publishers. It's a great help.

    My monthly "other" meeting is on this night. :( I always miss you guys!

    February 22, 2013

  • Renee La V.

    We have a good number of new members. Would sure love to meet some of you guys! Come to the meeting! If you don't have something to read, at least come share some input into everyone else's. C'mon. No need to be bashful! I believe this is the monthly meeting I'll have to miss to attend another one, but I'll see you guys next time. You'll be old pros by the time we meet! :)

      I HATE missing these! I miss out on so much! But, for the moment, it's a "must do."
