    Note to us four straglers.... See how powerful we are? We spoke of people who are not centered ie: self absorbed. Then drug addicts. Then people going through divorce. And oila! We manifested all-in-one opening a door. lol! It was a great night! Thanks to everyone for honoring my space. Great writing to one and all!!

      I felt bad as well. I didn't want to leave you in bad graces with your neighbors. I had no idea we were being loud. It was rather fun.

      Yes Steph, bringing your tumbler next meet. LOL! Seriously, the manifestation was our/my creation. This person didn't hear us from the back bedroom. It was only 10:30. She is a combination of all situations we discussed. One who was banging on my door at 7am first three days she lived here demanding I take her to get her meds, food, etc. "Life or death." Hysterical! She's just an unhappy out-of-sync person. No worries.

    I guess I posted this in the wrong place, so I'll say it again. That you all so much for the feedback yesterday. You were spot-on with your critiques, and I'm finding them hugely useful in revision.

      Thats OK if I won't be able to read. I would want to come and observe a few times first anyway before I share. So its OK to come?

    FYI. We were wondering about Edward. After being missing since Monday, his brother, Fred's body was found yesterday. My heart goes out to him and his family at a very difficult time. A tragic, sad end for a young man.

    Is this a themed story based on 'New Beginnings'? Or, is it open forum?

      The theme for these meetings is, I suppose, so people who aren't working on something (a short story, novel, etc.) can have a prompt if they'd like one. Most of us bring what we're working on. Sometimes a few of us will bring a one-off piece of work. You can bring anything you want, theme or no theme, end-goal or no end-goal.

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.
