    Thanks to you all as well. I also gained a lot of insight into my own work. I always learn unexpected and surprising things at every meeting. We can get so much out of simply listening to one another. I enjoy getting to know all of you and getting to hear your varied and informative perspectives.

    It was a very special conversation last night! It is so helpful to hear the various perspectives and I agree with Wendy that Amanda is a wonderfully low-key, effective moderator on Monday evenings. Thank you so much, Amanda. Today I am reading everyone's written responses and finding even more insights. Wendy, I really appreciate your editor's take on my work and I am using your copy with its editorial notes as the basis of my revisions, adding other's suggestions (like Cathy B.'s title for my chapter and others' comments as well) into the revision process.

    Great group last night. Hope that, although it was small, the writers had enough opinions to help their process and progress. Enjoyed the tenor of discussion and all the comments. Always so informative what each brings to another person's work. Thanks, Amanda and Rebecca for sharing your work, and yourselves. And, Amanda, thanks for leading every Monday night and your low-key, effective moderating.

    At the BWW, I enjoy reading others' works and discussing the varied perspectives we bring to each piece. When my work is presented, I am so thankful for the careful reading and comments others share. Thank you, Amanda, Cathy, Pat J., Shelagh, Wendy, and Darlene!

    I'm very sorry to have to cancel last minute- I didn't realize my husband is working tomorrow night and I don't have childcare arranged. I'm happy to give comments on line, Amanda and Rebecca, let me know if you'd like them! And Amanda I will have to get the book from you next time.

    Hi Wendy and Everyone else,

    Sorry about the tardiness. I will be posting three poems this evening. I have to type them into my computer when I get home because they were written on a typewriter. Sorry for the delay. They are pretty short pieces.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
