After 35 years of writing reports, analyses and technical documents in the nuclear industry, I want to return to writing science fiction, fantasy, freelance articles, and seague into a second career as a full-time writer.

Do you belong to a favorite genre?

Not yet. I write in fantasy and science fiction, and am planning a contemporary thriller that contains a bit of both.

Are there any weaknesses in your writing style that you want to focus on?

Definitely. I really need to work on improving transitions, both between subplots and different points of view.

Would you like to have fun with your writing?

Always! The thing is, to be successful as a writer you have to write, whether it's fun or not. I've found that if I stick with it, it becomes fun as I make progress.

What Kathleen Parrish is saying about this Meetup Group

We have a great mix of new and experienced writers, and try hard to give a good critique for everyone who submits. We're a pretty eclectic group - Sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary romance, literary fiction are all welcome.

    Responding to the meeting last Wednesday.. I was pleased with the turn out and professional look at the writers work. I am interested in becoming a member and will respond when I am ready. To do a good job I need to make time which I now dedicate to finishing the third book in a trilogy I am working on. When I feel I can dedicated the needed energy to the group and sit amongst all those famous authors and give comments I will do so. Still adjusting from living in Mexico for 2.5 years.

    Hi, KC,
    I really would prefer to be in the Blue group, with people I feel better/more comfortable about working with. I was changed from the Red group without my consent and would like to have a say in where I fit in to this Meetup.
    Thank you,
    Lisa Crouch

    Thank you for the welcome. Penina sent me a welcome as well and I would love to attend the Feb. 20 meeting at BN. Hopefully she already added me to the list.

    Hi Kathleen! Thanks for the messages! My kids have been on fall break, so I've been busy, but I will definitely review them before Wednesday. See you then.

    I spotted something about it on your message board, I have it on my calendar. I'm undecided about whether or not I'm going though.

    Thank you for the warm welcome, Kathleen. I'm very excited to be finding writer friends here! It's been six months since I've really been able to attend such a group and I'm looking forward to it. Regretfully, I won't be able to come tomorrow, family commitments. However, I have the next several months meetings in my calendar and I feel confident I'll be able to come to one soon. Thanks again!
