Welcome to another edition of Redmond Roaring Writers, our bi-weekly meeting at Redmond Panera.

Panera has free Wi-Fi.

Panera does request that groups order at least something. They have a decent selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads. Consider arriving a little early if you plan to eat, it may also be a good time to meet your fellow writers! We usually chat until ~7 and then work on critique.

Please consider bringing some writing to share, even if it's your first time. We keep our feedback constructive and supportive.
Since we critique work during the meeting, keep your submission relatively short.
I suggest limiting your piece to under 1500 words/six double-spaced pages.
I also suggest double-space (so people can write comments).
Check the "Yes" count before you depart to make sure you have enough copies.

Also if you want more in-depth feedback, consider posting your work in .DOC(Word 97) or RTF format by the Sunday before the meeting and I'll send out a note to let the group know it's up there.

    Will bring the first draft of my science fiction novel synopsis to Wednesday's meeting. Am currently working on a chapter by chapter outline.

    After tonight's helpful comments, I left feeling I didn't make something clear. So I'm posting it here ahead of the next MeetUp. The two guys in my story who love the same girl ARE THE FURTHEST THING FROM THE TWILIGHT TRIANGLE! I agree it will help to work on making the two distinctly different from each other. I agree building conflict in some other way will help the story. But one reason (and there are other reasons) to make the two guys friends, not rivals, and to not have the story focus on some conflict between them, is so it's clear I'm not writing Twilight FanFiction. These three unite against the world, in the village and later in the city. That's the story. It's not about rival lovers. In the second book the three become four against the world. Sorry, had to get it out. ;-)

      No one wants you to write Twific. All I'm saying is that if you have two people from diametrically opposed cultures, they're going to clash even if it's from simple misunderstandings. It takes effort to gain understanding and trust and bridge the cultural divide.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
