What Emily C is saying about this Meetup Group

I feel reinvigorated by talking with such a diverse group about the writing everyone is doing, thinking about doing, and/or wanting to be doing! Thanks to Maryann for organizing the meetup, and refereeing the conversation. Hopefully we'll be able to get together and do this again.
