Sept meetup

Hi Everyone!

This is the date chosen by our last meetup attendees. I hope you can still make it, we can end the day together, a tough day for many.

A HUGE thank you to Laurie for leading a successful and positive critique series. I'm thrilled so many new members and old faces we've missed attended. I understand there was a fantastic turnout and you all found it a positive deviation from our usual meetings. I plan to keep doing this, to diversify and listen. To try and stir it up and stay fresh. (I know my goal setting gets old, I know, I know....) I'm meeting a few people in Sept and will see if they have any time this fall to speak to us. If not, perhaps in the spring. I know their names and emails, they can't go far, so eventually I promise we'll have one or more of them as a speaker.

In the meantime, sorry to be the buzz kill, but I just paid the meetup dues for the year. It costs $180 per year to stay on meetup.com which is how we find our new members. This is why I stay on here and why I have to charge dues. (I am the starving artist, yes yes.) I've been absent, but I'm back and need to crack down and collect for those of you that haven't paid for July-Dec. If you are new and want to try a meeting first, no problem. If you come a second time, you can pay then. Check or cash. Check made out to "cash" as we are not incorporated.

See you then! I'm excited to hear about your writing, the recent critique and of course, meet our newest members. Please come, you all keep us interesting!

    Good, but too many people, not enough discussion.

    Do you want to specify how much the dues are so everyone knows? I'll bring mine.

    Also--is there no location listed for a reason? Do we have Panera's?

      $15 for 6 months, Which isn't bad. And at Panera Bread in Shrewsbury. See you there!

    Also re the date--as a WTC survivor, I'd just like to say that this year I am looking forward to the meetup on September. It's a "looking forward" day for me this year, and the energy, camaraderie, and inspiration of being with other writers fits right in with my chosen outlook. Hope to see you all tomorrow night.
