Non-fiction - I have written a self-help book (not yet published). I have one blog and plan to start another soon. I have written a number of self-help articles and research type articles. I also write web content and edit others' content.
Only on the internet in terms of blog entries and online articles.
I would like to learn more about the business or writing and how to make a decent living in this field. I would like to become a full-time writer instead of just writing "on the side."
Yes! I would love to meet other writers and attend lectures about writing-related topics. I work from home (jack of several trades...) and don't get to meet other people all that often.
Yes. I actually like your "tough love" approach. I think it's better to weed people out in advance rather than have to kick them out later (although I'm sure you still have to do that, too).
I've always been a writer, but I've only recently begun to own the title of "writer." I read the description for this group and it's exactly what I'm looking for. I want to learn more about the business of writing and meet other writers.
This group includes writers from a variety of genres, but all are serious about writing. I have attended only two meetings so far, but I learned a great deal in both meetings. I encourage those who are on the fence to join this meetup and check out a meeting. I don't think you'll be sorry!
