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.
Not yet. I write in fantasy and science fiction, and am planning a contemporary thriller that contains a bit of both.
Definitely. I really need to work on improving transitions, both between subplots and different points of view.
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.
We have a great mix of new and experienced writers, and try hard to give a good critique for everyone who submits. We&#039;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.
It was great meeting you today. I look forward to future meetings with this group.
Hi Kathleen, thank you so much for your warm welcome! I am really looking forward to meeting the group. See you tomorrow!
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!
I sat in on your session this past Wednesday.
