Awesome April 10th and 24th

Hi everyone. Charen and Anthony here.  We can try again for 2 meetings this month.  Members attending are getting some awesome feedback.  We are working well together and very supportive.  This is one positive group.  If twice a month does not work for you, or Thursdays are NOT good, we still are open to ideas on how everyone can meet and benefit.  We tried the Wednesday night which supposedly clashed with another meet up but we had more people show up.  So, please, please, your input is vital. I am open to one or two nights per month, so let me know what is best for you and we will try to accommodate. As you may remember, there were problems with the meet-up site, and then I couldn't log on and had to change my password.  All should be well, see you April 10th at 7pm. Call me at[masked] if you have any questions. Keep writing, Charen

    Have either you two (Amanda and Theresa) heard anything back from Claire Alexander-Wheeler? I am still waiting for my reply. Sent manuscript to her at the end of February.

      Not a word so far. I suspect she's been inundated with submissions, but who knows...

    Hi. I just joined the group via internet and am wondering if you can tell me more about it. I had started a book several years ago and gave up, and would like to be around other writers to maybe re-start the effort. Is it okay to just be present and observe?

      People do come and observe. You can't really know if something is a good fit until you check it out. So, welcome. However, most people who come once and have no work to share just want us all to tell them how awesome they are and what they need to do to write a book. So that does annoy me. Because I am there to improve my writing. That means, if other people have zero to say about my work, and no work of their own, it's kinda a waste of my time. But it's also very hard for me to stay writing, so, yeah, I get that support is a big function of the group. But do I prefer people who critique and contribute? Yes.

    I think it would be good to input the meetups separately instead of lumping both together. It's hard to know who is and isn't coming this way. I will be there on the 10th, but not on the 24th.

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.
