    Last night was so much fun and really insightful. I hope to attend more!

    Just thought I'd post that Orem Library is having a writing month in April and is doing all sorts of actives throughout the month. There is a complete list on their website. I think the writing workshop with Carol Lynch Williams on the 16th looks interesting, as well as the YA Fiction Panel on the 23rd, and the Fiction Panel on the 29th.

    Last night was great! I look forward to reading more from you all. If anyone would like to swap material, I have a lot of stuff I'd like feedback on.

    Thank you to everybody. We have such a great group. We are a bit big. I know there was talk of limiting to ten next time but I hate to leave someone out that wants to be there. Is it not possible to split into two groups at the same locations? Or have an alternate location for the wait list people to still meet?

    If you want to come, come. If you want to read, read. If you want to watch, watch. We will figure it out. It does not matter what chapter-- we are not all on chapter 1 anymore. Anyone in SLC want to carpool? Call me[masked]

    Could I bring a later chapter of the novel in or would that be too confusing?

    A friend and I want to show up and observe, see if we're a good match for your group.

    So I have a question about how this is going to work tomorrow. Are we bringing 14 copies of our work or will we split into two groups of 7 and only bring 7 copies to share?

      I really doubt everyone will show up. We'll stay as one group like usual and share copies if necessary.

    "Do as I write, not as I blog. ..."cannot not be with us"? And I did actually have paragraphs that made sense but hey, I cannot not ask the question no matter how badly written. lol1

    Hi writer friends - I signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo for April and thought some of you might be interested too. The website is www.campnanowrimo.org. It's a flexible version of the "write 50,000 words in November" NaNoWriMo where you can choose your own goal (mine is 12,000 which is awfully close to the 10,000 minimum but you have to start somewhere). If you're interested let me know and I'll request to be in your cabin (like an online discussion board I think). Susan

      Hey Beauty, You read my mind--or I read yours--because I was just contemplating this challenge for myself. Not sure yet... lol!

    OK, We cannot have Susan and Matt not be with us. And we know how many 'newbies' 'no show'. In other MeetUps I'm in as Host, we prioritize our regulars and have the newbies come even if they don't all read the first time. Also, I can bring extra chairs if you want Trisheena. So maybe an 'open house' this time and we see what pans out. I'll wait to read at Steph's.

    What do you guys think?

  • Toney

    Can we come if we're on the wait list or is that something that this site just does?

    This is my first time going to a writer's group. Can I just sit in and listen?

      Does everything get critiqued? I just published my second book and would be willing to read a bit from that, but not ready to share new material.

      March 5

    • Susan Curtis S.

      Ann, first off congrats on getting your work published! As far as critiques go, everyone who reads gets critiqued since that's the reason most of us go in the first place. Of course you're welcome to just come and listen the first time, but don't be shy. Also, there's only time for each reader to share maybe 5 double spaced pages of what they're working on so it's not like you need a completed manuscript or anything.

    I'm really going to make it this time, I'm very eager to share and listen.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
