    I'd say try bringing a small work to critique. We can split into groups depending on how many people bring material and do a little reading. Try to keep it under 3000 words? (not a hard limit, just a guideline). Maybe 3-4 copies. Let's try that for now and see how it works.

      Bill, Click on MORE in the main menu line, then on FILES, you'll see an ADD FILE under the main heading. They say there's a way to limit access to just the members. If you don't, your file will be available to everyone on the internet.

      That worked!!! Thank you.

    I uploaded article to the http://www.meetup.com/sci-fi-writers/files/site on Writer's groups from Writer's Digest July/August 2014 issue. Mentioned it at last meeting 7/10.

    I think an open discussion board is appropriate for some things. Perhaps not actual our compositions, but I'd like to be able to scan some things for the group on writing itself. As far as weekly, I think the group would be more cohesive and productive if the meetup were more than once per month. I'll be there the 17th, and hope to see others there.

    Jeff mentioned the http://www.meetup.com/sci-fi-writers/files/ looks like a place we could post stuff and there looks to be a discussion board that is private. I don't know about you guys but, I just started and would feel vulnerable to post on an open forum. And the once a week may be tough for me working evenings

    July 15, 2014

  • Cynthia

    Are people bringing work to critique or just wanting to chat?

    July 15, 2014

  • Jeff

    Glad everyone enjoyed this month's meeting. I think an idea for a weekly meetup sounds like a good idea. Wish I could attend them all, but unfortunately I won't be able to right now unless my schedule changes. So I will change the calendar for next Thursday's meetup.

    is there a blog space connected to meetup that we could all login to and share information that we might not want to tell everyone on the internet.

    July 13, 2014

    • Jeff

      Prue there is a message board under the discussions tab where you can post information. Usually anything that is posted there doesn't go out to everyone.

    Jeff -
    Sorry to hear you were ill. Hope you're feeling better. Last night's meeting was terrific. Everyone had input and many good ideas were put out and discussed. A couple of us suggested weekly meetings [same time, same place] as an experiment, and agreed to show up next week. Looking forward to see what happens. Perhaps all of our brain cells will start kicking in.

      Sad to hear I missed out on this one. If you guys are meeting up next week will you, or someone, let me know? I'd really like to try to make it.

      July 11, 2014

    • Jeff

      Thanks Jerry, feeling good now, sorry I missed this meeting. I heard you all would like to start a weekly meetup. I am thinking that sounds like that could be a good idea.

      July 13, 2014

  • jerry w.

    Great!

    July 13, 2014

  • Jeff

    Will everybody the meeting is still on, but unfortunately, I am not feeling so well right now, and unfortunately I will not be able to attend tonight. Sorry about this, did not expect this to happen. Will have one scheduled for next month for sure.

      Hi Jeff, thanks for putting this together. Is the $2 per person an annual fee or for every meeting? You weren't there so I didn't know if I was to pay you. I'm looking at all this on my phone so don't know if it's a PayPal thing.

      July 11, 2014

  • David W.

    I share Jamie and Jerry's sentiments wholeheartedly. I sent Jeff a private message about trying for weekly meetings (for whoever can make it) in an attempt to build momentum. For those of you who left earlier - that's something a few of us discussed later; even if not everybody could make it, having a more regular standing weekly meeting might make it easier to establish a rhythm and have less "reboot" meetings. I don't want to be presumptuous, as this is Jeff's group, but I also don't think it'd hurt to try.

    July 11, 2014

  • Jamie

    Great to meet everybody last night! Lots of good thoughts shared--I look forward to seeing you next time.

    David: When you arrive at the Black Eyed Pea, you go through the main dining room to the second/back room. There is a large table at the front of the second area that Jeff usually reserves for us. Lee

  • David W.

    So how do you guys usually find each other when the group leader's not there?

    July 10, 2014

  • Sophie

    I'm new and bringing a friend. Is it still on?

    July 10, 2014

  • David W.

    What's going on now? I'm planning on attending (first time), so at least that part of the rsvp list isn't broken. Let me know as well if you end up canceling this, please.

    July 10, 2014

  • Lee M.

    I am confused. Either 2 people are going (Jeff and me) or 11 people are or some people RSVP'd more than once and it's 13. . Jeff, hit my email at [masked] if it's only 2 and you are cancelling 7/10 before 4:30 tomorrow 7/10/14.

    July 9, 2014

  • Lauren D.

    Aww, I might have to work that night unless I can switch shifts with someone. And I know I've said this for the past 2 months, but I am seriously really trying to get enough writing to put up in the file section for critique. :-)

    I hate missing again, but I've got a conflict!
