This is a group for anyone out there who has been wanting to write a book and could use a little inspiration and challenging goals to get started. We are all busy with other jobs, family duties, etc., and sometimes can lose track of some of our creative goals. The plan is to meet weekly to just write. And have a goal of working six months straight and see where that gets us. We can also have a speaker come in and help us with writing structure. Hopefully, we can also form friendships and end up with a product, or a few chapters, or a few pages.  But further than where we started.
To let you know about my background, I own a performance space in Hollywood and I book/manage/program about 50 shows per month. I also have several film meetups with around 3,000 members, and we offer screenwriting classes and other educational film events. In addition, I run other writing programs for stand-up, and other kinds of get togethers, most of them which involve writing, acting and theater. I have 9 meetups, some of them since 2010.  Mostly, the were created to provide a space for creative folks to finish their products.
In terms of writing, most of my life I have been a singer/songwriter for my band (lyrics, music) that have aired on MTV. I have a degree from the Ohio State School of Journalism (Advertising Track) and a Master's Degree in Telecommunication Arts from the University of Michigan. I have written a couple of screenplays.

I will be joining you in this book/writing/experiment. Lissette
