Brentwood Meetup

This group is for everyone, writing everything. Bring it all! If we have 10 or more people, we may split up into two reading groups to make sure we have time to read everyone's work.


For those bringing pieces to read:

  • 5 page limit
  • Double spaced
  • Try to bring enough copies for everyone


As far as location, I'm open to suggestions. I chose Panera for this month because I know it has enough space, even if it's a bit loud.

    Though this was my first meeting ..and my inexperience was evident .. The writers I might were friendly and they gave me reviews that will help me I improve my story. I liked the enthusiasm for writing and honest reviews.

    I can no longer access the information on thoughts, but it was compiled by author Michael J. Tucker at the behest of Cheryl Reiger for Sunday's Writer's Chat. Check with one of them to get a copy. It includes portions of Palahniuk's blog about the subject and Mike also added material from another blog that address the use of quotes, italics, and neither to display a character's thoughts. Plus he added a material from a novel I'm currently reading that provides a working example. As Mike noted, very thoughtful. I enjoyed Monday night's Meetup and meeting new people. Hope I see some of you at Killer Nashville.

    I will try to make it. My book, Vendetta Stone, has just been published and I have about a zillion things to do. Plus, Killer Nashville starts Thursday at the Hutton Hotel.

    Quite new in the world of writing fiction -- though I have several short stories . Looking for people with experience or committed writers for feedback and encouragement. I have a thick skin.. and would not mind brutal or constructive feedback.

    I write plays that inform, short stories, and expound on random thoughts.
