      Hi, Clare,

      Hi, Clare. Our first meeting was sparsely attended, and I'd hoped to see you here. Do you want to try for this Saturday? I'm sending notes to others who had planned to attend but didn't let me know they'd changed their minds. Please let me know. Chris. [masked]

    I did get a message from someone who shall remain anonymous, saying that in that I intend to charge for this group I was "degrading" the spirit of Meetup. I'm mortified if that's true. There is a system to charge fees, though, built into Meetup so I can't be the first. So, let me explain my reasoning: I think this works better. I think groups with a leader are better because they have a consistent style from the start. Six strangers can get together to share their writing, and without a leader there will be six philosophies at play. I'm not saying MY philosophy is superior to all others, mind you, but I do have one and I think it works pretty well. And things that cost something are more valued. But please see for yourself. The first meeting is free. We'll see how people get along and go from there.

    I am away until mid-June but am very much interested in a group such as this. I realise you may be closed by the time I return, if now... perhaps I can meet you then?

      I expect so. Let's see how this one goes! I saw you cancelled five times, so I was going to respond, "The lady doth protest too much," displaying my literary aplomb... but now I understand.

    will all classes be on Saturdays?

    March 22, 2013

    • chris w.

      That's the plan, but if the group prefers otherwise, we can change it.

    At what point do you feel comfortable saying, "I'm a writer."?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
