I will investigate other meeting locations. Can anyone meet on a weekend? I
can’t make it on a weekday before 7:00 pm.
I appreciate the opportunity to read others’ chapters because listening to
readers does have its challenges when it comes to digesting what I hear and
being able to comment. I don’t do books on tape. I was about to say, “I read the
old fashioned way – with a book,” but I suppose oral storytelling goes back
thousands of years!

right. I went ahead and reserved quills for tuesday, Oct. 1. I will be there at
6:30 all are invited. If anyone wants to post/ read excerpts ahead of time,
write me at: [address removed] I will create a dropbox for the group and
give passwords to those who ask for them. I have reserved quills for the
first Tuesday in Nov and Dec. If this is going to be worthwhile, we will know by

[scifiwriting-1] Member Limits at Quills. My Suggestion.
I like this idea, though I do prefer the idea of having one in the
beginning of the month, one at the middle. It’s sort of self defeating, in my
opinion, to have two potentially one day after the other.
I also like the idea of having a group SkyDrive or dropbox, as I have a
difficult time just listening like someone else mentioned. Perhaps, for the sake
of privacy, we can make it so that it’s a password protected dropbox. Password
could be distributed only to individuals present day of, and any uploaded
content is deleted at the end of meeting? Maybe it’s paranoia, but I would much
rather read along as the author is reading than risk any joe shmoe joining the
group with the exclusive intention of stealing someone’s work.
