Perhaps we need to step back, rethink a little and share a bit of who we are and what kind of work we do.? I agree that it is horrible to let a 130 member group die without an attempt to save this good energy we have gathered.? Maybe we need an online home first to get to know each other, and then we can figure out where to go with the group.? I think a website or group created somewhere to share our thoughts and our work would be a great start.?
Victor, I love science fiction and fantasy, and I would love to see some of your work.? I write poetry, and I am writing a book, Confessions of An Executive's Wife.? I live in Lake Orion on the lake, and perhaps next summer I could host a meeting and we could enjoy the sunshine and water sports here.? Maybe each of us could host one meeting a year, but in the meantime, let's talk about sharing online.? I have read the notes about the meetings, but I always managed to have a reason not to go.? Let's share a bit of our work, and what we love about writing, and get to know each other.
Happy Valentine's Day!

my biggest question is where would it meet? ?I never went to any of the meetings because of how far away it is from me (I live in Monroe)
