    That was a great time. I'm inspired to try a memoir exercise today just to mix things up. Thanks, everyone - for being interesting and fun and interesting. :-)

    ON THE TOPIC OF MEMOIRS: I rarely read them, but I will recommend "Nomad", by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Ali's memoir is absolutely astonishing, and she makes a really compelling argument as to why so many Muslims are vulnerable to being radicalized. She tells a very personal story while also putting it in the context of the social, political, and religious forces that have shaped her life's journey.

    A great evening for me! I'm inspired to start marketing my memoir. Also took D's advice and linked to my blog post on facebook today.

    I was really wanting to go to this, but it's a long trip into DC, I've got a bunch of deadlines, & I need some sleep tonight. I HAVE to go next month!

    D, what prompted you to come back to the group again after disappearing with nary a peep?

    April 22, 2013

    • Joan F

      Oh, ignore previous comment. You must be coordinating with Jim. Nice of him to provide enough support to the group to keep it alive.

    I'd love to come, but Friday nights are often hard for me for religious reasons.

    Yeah, Donna: you're back! I'm definitely in. I LOVE Bird by Bird. There is a book of writers' quotes and inspiration that has some good thoughts that I'll bring call A Year of Writing Dangerously by Barbara Abercrombie.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
