New Year, and it's all clear (as mud)!

Hi all!

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday season and taking time out from your shopping to write. I've gotten some great updates that you're on a roll some of you. And I'm thrilled. I've even writing again and happy to once again be in my element. Nothing like a natural disaster to distract you.

Hate to be a bore, but please bring your dues. Cash or check (checks made out to me or cash as we're not incorporated) for $15. This way there's no basket passing and having to deal with money each meeting.

Last meeting we decided on our formal meeting being the 1st Monday of each month. THe library has given us the official word that we have secured the room and time for the entire year of 2013. Mark your calendars! We've also decided the informal meeting will be 2 weeks after and that date will be announced as well. We'll be in a rhythm which I think will serve the group well.

Thank you for those of you who have offered to help on committees and also those who've turned in their author bios and "Perks" pages. If anyone wants to be included on our roster of members offering services (discount or not), please contact me. I'll be compiling the list through January for distribution in February.

We'll be trying some exercises and small groups as suggested by our members. So come along, try us, you just might like us.

Ho HO HO,

wendy

    I drove all the way there, and I wasn't able to park. I had no idea the parking lot would be so small. It had only a few spaces. Never again if I can't park. It was a wasted trip.

    Hi,
    Looking forward to your meeting. I am not a published writer but I would like to learn and grow from others as I write at home. Thank you.

    Glad to see some new people are joining us. People in the group are at all different levels. That doesn't matter. What matters is that I need all of you to inspire me and kick my butt back into writing mode for 2013. Hahaha.

    Hi,
    I am not a writer by trade, but during the course of my professional life have done alot of writing. Now I'm thinking of developing my writing, but not in a vacuum of only me, myself, and I. A group as yours would
    be good exposure for me. I hope to attend your January meeting.
    Sincerely,
    Ann
