Hi all:

Two important topics related the the writers group:

November meeting - Writers Tools

The November 21 meeting will be a presentation of writers tools made by the group itself. Please please help by identifying one of your own favorite writing tools and agreeing to make a five minute presentation to the group. We'll have a laptop there for the electronic tools or if you have the urge to create a Powerpoint presentation. I need to know by the next meeting that you want to present and what your favorite tool is, to organize the session.

 

Web Site

It has always been our intent to find multiple ways for the writers group to support each of us as writers.

The web site is nearly ready. You can see a draft version of the site here:  http://mainlinewritersgroup.wix.com/mainlinewritersgroup. The page titled MEMBERS has sweet rolls in place of face photos. Here's what I need from you:

  • A photo that will crop well to roughly square
  • A three word title to describe yourself (no more than three...think of it as a writing exercise)
  • A bio covering the information you want someone to know about you
  • Links to any or all of the following that you want to include: LinkedIn, Facebook, your own web site, a site for a book you've written,  Amazon links etc.

The bio isn't a separate page that has it's own address (you can see the sample on the site address listed above) but it is a great opportunity to have another place Google finds your name and shows up in the results.

Once I get the first few profiles, I will pay the upgrade fee for the site and remove the ads for WIX and make it available to the search engines.

One note: the profile is for members. Yet another reason to support the group with that low membership amount. It covers the meetup charges, the web domain name and hosting, the meals we typically buy our guest speakers and any other costs we run into.

The site will also be where we host pages for our book which we are publishing!

So send me the stuff for your profile pages!

As usual, questions or comments: [address removed] or call me[masked]-2346. Thanks!
