Writers Critique

Writers will submit their works in progress in the files section for other members to read and write comments on. If possible, please bring a few copies to pass around just in case, but this is not mandatory.

This group is self-sustaining. I expect to attend every meeting I post, but, in the event I, suddenly, can not, if an assistant organizer is able to attend, they can help lead the group for that specific meetup.

Members are encouraged to keep sharing to 10-15 minutes each, if the group is larger.

Also, please note, there are submission guidelines. They are listed as 'Submission Guidelines' under the 'Discussions' tab. There is a format we follow in an attempt to keeps things moving along in a freindly, yet, concise manner.

    I enjoyed being able to discuss my work and share it with others in a supportive setting.

    I feel so bad because I am very ill today with a cold and/or flu. I'm hoping maybe we can review my chapter next time. i will resubmit it. I will share my thoughts on the ones i reviewed at that time too, unless anyone wants to write to me. I just can't make it since in addition to fearing the drive due to being feverish, sore and sniffling, I also fear spreading all my joy to the rest of you! Hope you enjoy your meeting and will see you next month!

      Sad news. Sincerely hope you feel are on the mend soon. Sounds like a terrible bug. Stay home and rest up. You'll be glad you did. Hope you recover as quickly as possible and see you at the next one. I'll just leave your current submission up until the next critique session. No worries.

    I just found out I may have a schedule conflict tomorrow. I'll let you all know as soon as I confirm it.

    I changed my "Available to" to "Anyone" if that helps everyone.

    Unfortunately, until this gets fixed by meetup, everyone has to update their files so that they can be seen/viewed by anyone at this point. I did put in a note to meetup that there is a bug that needs fixing, but, all I got was a generic email reply at this point. They probably won't get to it until tomorrow (Tuesday) at the earliest.

    If we set it to be read by "everyone" who is everyone?

      Thanks Kimberly. I wonder if we can email our writing to each other this time, until this gets fixed.

    • Ardyth K.

      Also, I WAS able to open all files. Strange. At any rate, I certainly do not want my memoir out there for everyone to read. So, I would be willing to email it if this does not get fixed.

    Ok. anyone else having problems downloading the submitted files? Maybe it's just me, but I am.

    February 17, 2014

    • Kimberly Murphy W.

      I was able to download everything, regardless of the permissions that were set.

      February 17, 2014

    • Sachi M.

      I'm unable to see any :(

    Sorry - we have a conflict this weekend. Next month for sure!

    Looks like I'm going to be able to come after all. We are going to do my grandmother's 90th birthday party on the 23rd, so I'm free for Saturday. Will upload the next TLE chapter soon.

    I was a little afraid yesterday that I would be the only baby boomer old timer in the group--but I see that there are other members who are my age! I'm hoping that some of you will come to our next critique!

      Yeah, I hope some of the others pop in for this session.

    Thanks Daniel. I"m the one you invited and I am going. Hope to see you next time!

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.
