Shopping Bags Full Of Bacon

Hi Writers,

I cancelled the 3/20 meeting so we can all attend Kim's event on Tuesday. Let's meet on 3/27. Shelagh will have her story reviewed then. Anyone else want to have work critiqued?

See you then!

    Hi, everyone. Just wanted to check in, thank you all for the great conversation tonight. I enjoyed hearing the thoughts about my piece, and came away with ideas for revision - something I was really hoping for. Nice to meet new people. Laura, thanks for sharing your piece. Still can't believe you wrote that in an evening! Good luck with revising it. I'd love to see it again.

    We all left rather haphazardly, and I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to a few people, but I appreciate the feedback and the attention to my story. See you all again soon, I hope! Best,

      Thank you for that, Tamah. Too bad you couldn't make it. Perhaps I'll see you at a future meeting...?

    Thank you all for taking the time to review my piece (unpolished and all). I received some great feedback to consider and would love future feedback. My strength is dreaming up the story, not editing and I know there are some damn good editors in this group! Thanks again!

      The story really resonated with me. It's amazing you did that in one night.

      Hello Shelagh I look forward to reading your work and getting out of my shell a bit. I am excited you are in this group, I found it one night when I was thinking of a friend of mine who is very actively writing and networking. Interesting how aligning brings energies together. Peace.
