      Due to family problems I was unable to attend our March meeting. I am so sorry I missed your presentation. I know it was awesome and I could have learned a lot. You're not only a great writer, you're an excellent teacher as well.

    Reluctantly, I suggested my siblings do a couple of the 2 minute stories. I thought they would tell me to get lost, but they played the game with tons of enthusiasm. I couldn't shut them up. I talk about my meetings all the time and how much I learn each week. Thank you for sharing your talents.

    As always, we walked out better informed than we walked in.
    That is a constant that I'm thankful for.

    I made suggestions for other meetings to include tenses, sentence structure etc. After thinking about it I realized that it shouldn't be the task of the group to teach me grade school grammar that I forgot because I had been out of it for so long. So sorry for those suggestions.

    Yesterday's meeting was my third one with this group. Great presentation and information sharing.

    Wonder if it would be possible to have some small group time so that members can share their work with one another?

    Also, wonder if there is a way to share information about contacts (editors, specific publishers, agents)?

    Love the two minute drills and looking forward to learning about doing pitches.
    Looking forward to next month's meeting.

    • Eveline Horelle D.

      There are such possibilities. If you have something you want to share with the group you can post it on the FILE section. We have an editor, she worked with 23 of us and it seems every author is happy and goes for more. Contact me separately at evelinenow at gmail and I will introduce you to her. As for specific publisher, you must first start with a finish and ready work, that is after the editor. Let us know what your genre is and we will point you in various directions. As for finding you an agent, my dear, this is an author's dream and must be self-inflicted. The search is a long and tedious one. Most of all after your work has been edited and you are satisfied, you will be ready for the search for agent.

    Thanks to all for making my first meetup a wonderful experience. I learned so much, made great contacts, and just had a good time.

    March 3, 2013

    • Eveline Horelle D.

      This is the idea, now that you know the experience to be good, you can make the best of every visit. You will learn new things from your fellow writers.

  • Eveline Horelle D.

    As always the meeting of great. The sense of community learning and shared experiences makes this meeting particularly enriching. Remember the anthology. When you judge your work to be ready for the editor email it to me. Readers on standby are anxious, our editor is ready. My email address: evelinenow gmail... On the subject line do put 2013 Anthology. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

    After today, my attendance will definitely be more regular. I enjoy the group very much and I always learn more each time! Everyone is so willing to share information with you! Look forward to the next meetup.

    This was my third meeting and once again, I found it enriching, entertaining, and educational. The people in attendance seem to really want to help each other to be successful, which makes it easier to participate and want to share. I look forward to future workshops and reading other members stories. Great sense of humor as well. ^_^

    My first meeting today... having attended writers meetings in different groups in the past, I was reluctant to attend another, as the experiences were less than stellar. This one, however, was run very well, well attended, and I believe I stand to learn a lot from this group. Vinny's (?) presentation was engaging, humorous, and educational. And it sounds like there are some good things ahead. I look forward to the next in April. Thank you!

    Hope to attend the next meeting. I have written a children's book and have been working with an illustrator. I have some questions that I would like to address to someone that has had this experience. If you are that person, would you please be willing to share some information with me on your process. Thanks. Myrna

      My children's books don't involve illustrations, so I'm no help. There might be someone at the SCBWI (Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) who could give you information -- scbwi.org

      March 2, 2013

    • Myrna F.

      Gale, thanks for your response. It was nice meeting you this morning and I really appreciate the information you have shared. I will be in touch.

    I recently joined and am eager to get started with Ink Slingers :) I have company coming Friday. I will ask them if they are amiable to part company for the meeting. Is there a format to these meetings? A charge?

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.
