There's been some noise about how long the meetings go, and I want to check in with you. Yesterday's meeting was unusual in that we had new people attending, and some of us left early to catch the superbowl. Usually meetings run anywhere from three to three and a half hours. Originally we were meeting once a month and changed it to once every two weeks because of all the good stuff people brought that they had to read.
How about you: are the meetings too long, do you want to limit the amount of time, or limit the page/word count for material that people bring with them?
I've been using the volume of what people have to read to judge how long the meeting runs and how much time we spend discussing that person's work. It's very much an ad hoc consideration.
And I want to apologize if you feel left out or didn't get your fair share yesterday... So there.
If you respond to this email it'll go to my personal email so no one will know, unless you give me 48.6 cents.
Typically we meet every two weeks to work and support each other.
Though we occasionally post online, this is a face-to-face meetup group.
This group is for any of these and more:
If you're working on a piece, we'll help you with ideas and your writing process. If you're blocked or are having trouble writing, we'll work on what's getting in the way. If you've written and want to get published, we'll find out what the next step is (including self publishing).
In this group we'll get together to do good work, and have fun!
If you want to find out how this group works, I've put together an introduction sheet that should get you started
