New Providence Writers Extra-Meeting

I am calling an extra-meeting since some of us were interested in meeting again next week.

We will be meeting at Waterlilies Restaurant again.

Please RSVP and let me know if you are presenting a piece, so I can get a good idea of how many presenters we have to include.

If less than 4 people sign up I will cancel, so check again before coming.

Best,

Freda and Sharon

    Dr Malhotra thank you. I just don't feel well enough right now. Our company made one acquisition which I am supposed to take forward. This is a complex issue as I am also knee deep in research and have written a part of a book on Subhash Chsndra Bose that I am passionate about publishing . If ok I can communicate without taking up space here This is just temporary. I question the purpose and usefulness of the stories I read

      You have to ask yourself that question. I want to write and I want to write well. For the first time I am improving her in this group. I will keep writing , keep getting rejected and keep getting pulbhised. That is what happened all before us and that is what will happen to all of us.

      I don't really think about what's encouraging. Certainly, it's nice to get accepted into a magazine, or to find someone's bought or downloaded a story of mine from Amazon, but a lot of my writing, I do because I feel like I have to. A lot of my writing is just stuff I'm working out in my head. It would get written whether it was published or not. Getting published (either by someone else or self-publishing) is more or less a bonus. I have a story in my head right now that will probably never get published, but it's going to get written. Whether it's for publication, for the writers' group, or for only my closest of close friends, I haven't decided yet, but it's going to get written. Certain things just burrow into my brain and won't leave me alone until I write.

      The end of writing a story, is tellling it. The more people here my story the more joy I get. Publishing is the ultimate joy. Seeing it in print is thrilling.

    Got some really good feedback today. I'm going to be revising the epilogue (which I may or may not rename) and presenting it again, sooner rather than later. I'm thinking of toning Dave down a bit and making him less angry. And I'm going to extend the story a bit, to include more narrative about other things. I think it's a stronger epilogue for the book if it doesn't focus so heavily on Tavia. Anyway, thanks, all. Good group, as always!

    I agree it is a very good group. and the feedback is of great value. The feedback is heartfelt and honest I am greatful to all who seem to care the stories I read were written 10 years ago. I can edit and shorten them but I want the groups feedback first. I hsve been very sick for 4/5 years. I didn't most of last year and part of 2014 in hospitals , rehab and clinics and monasteries to heals self. The writing group has helped a great deal I am grateful But I am not still fully well and cannot do all the typing and getting. I have looked for a typist but no success yet. Please bear with my limitations for now. On a personal level I feel I feel genuine respect and kinship with the members. Some of the writing is d

    Some one asked me to review her book. I was able to do it more creatively because of what I learned from you guys in the group.

    These meetings are so beneficial. I reckon one could pay thousands of dollars for the feedback / tuition. In only three visits, I have learned a lot. Writing is HARD but rewarding!

      And you haven't been at the same table as me yet ;^) (really kidding - we all exhibit different strengths)

    Today , I learn that some paragraphs distract the reader from the story and not add to the story.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
