What Terry D. is saying about this Meetup Group

Six of us at the Jan 5, 2016 gathering. And great to see former member Rob Ellis return for a visit! He is considering become more active in writing and the group once again. We also shared some writing goals for the new year. I will not list them here, but we can get updates from each other in the coming months......... We also shared some tips on "writing focus." We critiqued two pieces: Anne's treatise on New Year's resolutions and another chapter from Doug M. relating his early-life struggles with anxiety. Our next small group meeting is Tues Jan. 19 and remember that Feb. 2 is our large group meeting in Allendale featuring author/speaker Kim de Blecourt. Good writing to you all.... Terry DB
