My name is Meghan -I am involved heavily in another meetup group in Spokane & a member of another. I am not a "serious" novelist or anything, but have started (very minimally) writing a children's picture book and though this would be a fun group.
Feedback/ideas from other people to get me on track and motivated to keep my story going. I am stuck in a rut and I've barely just begun. I think being in a group with other writers could help motivate and inspire me to continue further.
Like I said, I am in a rut. I have never been a daily writer anyways. But I admire those who love to write that much. I have a cousin who has published 2 books and another cousin who has written a couple books. My sister is writing a children's chapter book and has a couple starts on picture books. I guess in a way I may feel like I am not good enough in comparison which stops me as well. But one day - my imagination and motivation will re-appear and take off. The other issue is that childrens books these days reflect some sort of "lesson". I need to figure out what the lesson will be and how it gets delivered. I miss the days of the fun silly stories.
I have nothing to really present. But would love to listen to others. I would be insanely nervous anyhow as I can tend to run a bit shy when put on the spot.
Meet other creative individuals, possibly gain some motivation/inspiration/ideas from others in talking. Possibly help in some form myself with anyone else who might like it.
Welcome to the group Meghan! Great to have you. I look forward to meeting you in person. I love those classic children's books. Have five children so I had lots of practice reading aloud. See you at meetup!
Nice to meet you today, looking forward to more "meetups"!
I hope so Meagan.. Its a blast!!
Hi Meghan, thanks for joining the group! Hope you're able to make it this Friday, if your schedule allows..
Meghan, you are the coolest person ever!!!! I wish that I had more time in my life to attend more meet ups with you. You make them fun and relaxed. After my next show I should have some more free time. Keep smiling and being the wonderful you that you are!
Hello Meghan. I am glad you decidedto join our group. Our monthly meeting is tomorrow and you can get the information about times and location on our website. I wouold love to see you there. It sounds as if you have a definite interest in writing and maybe meeting with us is all you need to get that jolt of inspiration that will propel you into a new life of authoring a bestseller. I hope to see you there.
Meghan I was wondering if you ever had a chance to look for my white plastic plate that i left at the wine and appetizer meet up? My friend Jeff that lives there went to the club house but did not find it. If you know anything about it would you please let me know. It had the ham snacks on it. Alana
Thanks for the welcome, Meghan! I am looking forward to meeting you once my crazy September is through and I can breathe again. I spend a little time in the Valley working at the Y. Maybe I can do a park walk soon.
Thanks Meghan! I am excited to meet you all. The park walks sound fabulous and I will have to join one soon.
