    As is the case with a New Years, resolutions to write spring eternal. 45 people showed up and 17 were new people. We had 4 critiques and one was a fine work of poetry. Afterwards 10 of us met for drinks and dinner at the Marathon Grill.

    I came with my expectations sternly managed and was just delighted. Can't wait for the next one!

    I feel it went smoothly, and the craft chat seemed to work.

      Hi Meredith- I totally enjoyed the craft chat ("How should you end your novel or story?") As always, the multiple perspectives to ending a story made for an interesting discussion. Many clever strategies were suggested, and I felt like trying them all. I'm struck by how crime novels seem to combine many strategies in the same work -- as one thread is closed (the crime is solved), other threads are left open (the detectives must still resolve issues in their own lives).

    I've got the creative bug just like all the other members in this group but am not always comfortable reading my submissions in a group setting. Is it possible to attend and observe my first time out?

    • Jarod G.

      Thanks for the explanation, Sophia!

    Feeling grateful for the feedback I received today. It was helpful because it is challenging me to reconsider some of my novel. Thanks!

    I did not attend because I did not receive alll the submissions. I did not feel I could fully participate

    Hello group, I wanted to apologize because I am changing my RSVP on this meeting. My moving date for my apartment was changed from today to tomorrow and I don't think I'll be done moving in time to catch this meeting. Hopefully soon though.

    Aw man. My first submission and the first time any professional has ever read any of my work... In a word... nervous.

    January 1, 2013

  • Sophia

    It's been a while, but I'm determined to come to this one! I have reason to believe that I will be able to participate much more in this New Year. :)

    The "pages" section says each of these meetups has a topic discussed. I'm new to the group, but where can I find what the topic will be for this time? Thank you!
