Writing Circle!!!!

Hey fellow Writers!  I, Michael, will be hosting our first writers guild of sorts.  I'd like to get together, share what I have written, and get some constructive criticism.  I will be writing over the next few weeks, and polishing up a children's story, and working hard on my novels I have started.  I would love to meet up with other writers who wish to share their work in a friendly, non-judgemental environment as well (although we'll be giving ideas to anyone if they wish to hear any).  So please sign up for this event if you would like to join us.  Oh, and I promise that we will be kind and receptive to those who are first-time writers (you may have a gem on your hands anyway)!

    For you folks you stayed after the writing circle meeting to watch the Hobbit (I had already seen it)... I am curious... what did you think of the movie? How would you compare it to the Lord of the Rings / the Fellowship of the Ring? On a relevant personal note about writing, my challenge is finishing a project. I need to have a clear mandate for the beginning, middle, and end (and not keep adding and subtracting ideas in my head.) I need to divide that elusive "middle part" into coherent chapters. What are my strengths? Three things. 1st: proof reading and editing, 2nd: vocabulary (I sleep with a dictionary next to my bed) and lastly, the 3rd: writing in conversational dialogue (actually this is the one that my father envies... he can only write in third party narrative) I shared the above in an attempt to preserve and perpetuate our writing circle, here together - virtually - between our writing circle meetings. More later...

    Oh, yesterday folks in my office were singing, "I'm dreaming of a White Easter!" Snow in late March...? The folks in Punxsutawney are holding a mock death penalty trial for Punxsutawney Phil, who on Groundhog Day 2013 predicted an early spring :-)

    My father who was a college professor and taught composition, has a couple of DVD's on writing... basics... for some of you, this may seem remedial or demeaning... others might find same of significant value & utility. If the Host and others seem interested, I could share these if or when you like. He also has DVD's on research methodology. Your call !

    Hello! I know this is the first meeting of this particular event, but I was curious as to whether you were aiming for more of a reading-and-critique environment or a workshop style. I wouldn't be able make it out until the second event anyway, so if that hasn't been decided yet, that's fine. It's just that I'm in another writer's group I really enjoy, so if this one is going to have a similar format, I don't want to take spaces away from others who aren't! Good luck with the event!

    Are we still on for tonight? Do we need to bring anything?

      Yes you are still on for tonight. you may bring one writing sample, but only if you wish. This is a meet and greet night. I will be reading one or two items this evening to share with you the beginnings of some works we have been writing thus far, but other than that this will be the meeting in which we discuss how to go about the next writing circle. This should become a regular event...

      Also, this is an informal initial meeting, and anyone who wishes to read something they wrote, I'd be wanting to hear from you. ;-)

    Is this something where we should email stuff for reading around in advance to save time at the meeting? Or will we read it there?

      We may go that route. I have yet to discuss this idea with Michael and decide on a format. More details will be coming out soon!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
