I am VERY serious about finishing and publishing this book, and then I have a possible screenplay I want to write.
Absolutely. This group is about writing quietly, not about finding clients or promoting ourselves.
I pay the Meetup site fees and the dues charges are merely partially reimbursing me.
Grew up in Central Valley of CA; moved to Bay Area 1969. Art major who switched to accounting and had a biz for 35 years. Mostly lived in Marin since 1982. Always did music and song writing until I didn't. Have always liked to write; mostly essays. A couple have been published. This book I've written, I now see, is my life's work. It has pulled so much out of me; it's challenging to discover how one wishes to be heard and what is significant, moving or contributory enough to put out into the public eye and ear. Now I write because I am compelled!
I'm 68, mostly retired from a profession not related to writing, have written a book about my experience of polio, which I finished in the group and have been revising. The quiet and friendly support has been integral in having me move it forward!
I don't get a lot of writing done at home, so the intensive concentration has me produce in that two hours.
