    Smaller session today - 38 members. Nice to have a large group, but easier to contribute to the conversation when the group is smaller. I want to add that it is easy to get published today, BUT is publication only what you want? Post to online sites desperate for copy; create a blog. Vanity publishing is free today. Do you want prestige or confirmation of your skills, knowledge, and art? Do you want your writing validated by an editor or agent? Those goals require more effort on your part.

      I'm afraid my more exact directions keep getting erased. I'm going to post them again.

      The food court is actually more than 1 court. From the rotunda, one goes straight, and one goes left.

    Definitely looking forward to the meeting. I'd also like to mention that on Sunday, Oct. 6th Rene Daniel, a fantasy fiction writer who writes on The Mysteries will be lecturing on a new book at the Tesla Society meeting--5:15 at the Phila. Institute Library, 1905 Locust st. I'll also make a brief mention of the event on Saturday.

      Unfortunately Rene Daniel's lecture for the Tesla club has been cancelled on Sunday...I'll keep members posted on when the Tesla lecture will be rescheduled.

    I've been breezing by the Meetup Notifications for way too long now. I have 80,000 words of memoir work that needs to be put together and finalized as my first draft completed.

    Hoping being around like-minded creative types will push me back into writing mode daily.

    Looking forward to it!

    To paraphrase using the immortal Mr. T:
    I pity the fool that does nothing, because he only think he can do a little.
    Bonus points to the person who knows the correct quote and who said it - oh, without looking it up online...

    I'll buy you a drink if you can guess where I saw the quote for the first time - ok, I offer the drink for really good guesses...

    If you can't tell, I'm looking to get involved and meet some of you to gain your insight...

    If any member is serious about getting published in the Children's or Young Adult genres, need to check out the SCBWI Eastern PA meeting is coming in November. I have attended, well worth it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the discussion concerning the business aspect of this profession. I learned so much from listening to fellow colleagues. I will definitely be busy Monday as I put to task the many different websites while searching for a literary agent or agency. Best wishes to John M, who I did enjoy your piece and cannot wait to actually read and enjoy more about the Commandante.

    Thank you, everyone, for your helpful critique of my submission. It has given me the sharper focus in my style that I needed as well as an idea for action-dialogue near the start of the piece that was obviously lacking even to myself but could not break through without the candid views of fresh eyes such as yourselves. Always positive. Always constructive.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
