    I'm hearing from a few folks that they are having trouble getting into dropbox. Can someone who knows more than me post some user friendly directions again? Thanks

    Guys, I have a 6pm meeting in North Raleigh. So, I doubt if I will make the meeting tonight. I will send my feedback to Hugh and Tamara.

    Hi everyone,
    I've had a couple of questions about how to access the writings for the critique group. Go to There is a folder titled "Holly Springs Writer's Guild Critique Group". Once there, you will see another folder for "Critique Workshops" and then again for the date 3.10.2014. Tamara and I both have our pieces there. As per our guidelines, the pieces are available there through tomorrow at which time they will be deleted. If you have not reviewed the group guidelines, they are also available in the dropbox folder. Please do so. Thanks! I look forward to seeing everyone tonight.

    Thanks for letting us know Larry. As we are just getting established, we need to work up to the "3 meeting" guideline. That being said, if you can join us in April, maybe you can submit for May? We now have 2 openings for writing submissions for April. I'm going to suggest that Sherri and Susan, bump up from May to April. Does this work for you, Sherri and Susan?

      that would mean I'd have to write quicker :). And taxes are due... hmmm. I'll try.

      no pressure intended Susan. You can stay with May and we can solicit someone else tomorrow night.

    I will not be able to make it this month, again. Since the rules say that you have to attend 3 meeting to submit writing, looks like I will need to be pulled from next month's reading. Sorry and will miss this. Thanks...larry

    Hi friends,
    I'm excited about our critique group getting off the ground. Garrison, we will miss you. Thanks for still submitting feedback. And my apologies for my latent Luddite tendencies showing themselves. I have now correctly uploaded my submission to Dropbox for your critiquing pleasure. See you all Tues. at Susan's.

    Unfortunately I can't be there this month as I will be in Indiana on Tuesday. But I'll email my feedback to the people submitted stuff!

    Hi everyone,
    I just uploaded my piece to dropbox. It's a smidge over 1K words. It's the beginning of the first chapter of a novel. The first paragraph is really just paraphrasing of the Cherokee creation myth. Feel free to critique this, although I'm more interested in feedback on what follows the myth. Many thanks!

    I tried to send an e-mail to all of you but because I'm not the administrator, it didn't go. Anyway, I will be moving next month and won't be able to submit my work to be reviewed. I'm sorry I didn't get the message to you before your meeting last night so you could have chosen someone else to take my slot.

    Good luck all of you and I wish you success in your writing!

    I am happy to be a part of this group and it was so wonderful to have met a few of you last night at the Wine Cheese and Book night out hosted by the amazing Lori Verni- Fogarsi! Sylvia
