Why did they switch from Starbucks? It's been a couple years since I was there...

Just a note to remind people, I will be at Quills on Tues, Oct1, for
vault 2. Everyone is invited. I have had only one person express
interest in sharing a dropbox for sharing the stories. Please refer to
the earlier posting for more information.

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.

I, for one, enjoy the freewheeling nature of the Vault, but i can also
see the utility of a more formalized meeting. I propose to start a
new group, called Vault2, to meet on the first Tuesday of each
month. If there is interest, I will go Quills tomorrow and make the
reservations. I will also show up to pay for the room and act as
moderator, until someone else shows that they want to do that. I'm
not really the moderator type.

People will, of course, be free to go to either group or
both.
This will be more formal. I will set up a facebook group that anyone
who wants to participate can access. In order to participate, you
have to submit what you are going to bring to the meeting one by
the Saturday before the meeting, either by posting it on the site or
by emailing it to the members. You may also elect to read at the
meeting, if you are concerned about putting your work on the
internet, but the people who posted in advance go first. Each
person gets 15 minutes (or more if there is not too many people)
to read and receive critique. You may also elect not to read and
only accept critique of your written
words.
let me know if people are interested, then I will start to make it
happen.

Another suggestion that was made was to put a time limit on how
much reading and critique time a writer gets, which would allow
more people to read. The time limit would also mean that people
would be more selective about what scene they chose, like writing
that needs work, etc. I believe she formulated it as five minutes of
reading and then 10 minutes of critique, but we could always
adjust that formula.
I think it would also be a good idea for people who sign up for the
MeetUp to commit that they have writing they want to read, or if
they're coming to listen/check out the group. That would give us a
better idea of expectations.

As much as I love Quills, if there is another location available, I'm
hoping we could consider it. I'm wracking my brain to think of a
place that has enough space, privacy, etc.

As you might know, the fire marshal has informed us that we can
only have 14 people in the meeting room at a time. Since we have
been running well over 14 for the last few months, this causes a
problem.
#1 - Our group is getting BIG. Yeah!
#2 - Not everyone that wants to read is getting the opportunity.
Not yeah!
#3 We all want to participate. Yeah!
So here is an idea I wanted to bounce off you all. What would you
say to there being 2 meetings a month? One on the first
Wednesday as we have now and the second on say the 3rd
Wednesday of the month. You could go to either or both, but only
the first 14 people to sign up with an RSVP could attend. We would
need to check with Quills to see if we could have that date, it would
need to be paid for as usual, and we would need someone to run
the meeting each month on the second session. Lizard runs the
first meeting of the month.


We could also look into yet another place where we could all fit, but
it would not solve the problem of everyone having time to read.

Suggestions??? Thoughts??? Protest posters?

Think you have "Liberal"(commie) friends? Ask them what they're
willing to see
done to you for refusing to obey their commie laws.

If your "Liberal" and `progressive´ so-called friends claim they
aren´t
communists ask them which of the 10 planks of the Communist
Manifesto
they disagree with. If they give you an honest answer you will
know what
you are dealing with.


Just because you're "Liberal" so-called 'friends' are nice to you
doesn't mean
they won't be happy to see your property confiscated, you
imprisoned, or killed
for standing up for your Liberty.
