    To all those who reviewed my piece at the meeting I missed last month: if you could, please bring in the critique. Thanks.

    I think I may become an unrepentant tree killer. My paper manuscript pages fell out a certain way tonight and I ended up revising where a scene started based on that. I can't see how that would have happened had I been doing revisions on a computer screen. Maybe just the way my brain works and not helpful to you but I like it!

      That's interesting, especially if it works out. My on-line instructor never edits on the computer. She always prints out the manuscript.

    I joined a monthly creative writing class where we are given assignments. Lat month's assignment was to write 'what would I do different if I could live my life again'. This is my very first 'creative' writing … ever! I will upload it and look forward to the critique.

    I hope to learn a lot from this experience.

    Starting a new novella, Grace Ruby. Tackling a slight Adarsa revision. It's great to be on summer break so that I can get back to what I love, writing!

      Good, Silver. I think writing something new will let your creative juices out. Maybe set Adarsa aside for just a week or two, then look at it with fresh eyes. Just a thought.

    Hello, this will be my first meetup with this group. Is there anything I should bring? Thank you

      Hi Heather, Welcome to the group. You don't have to bring anything, but you can check out the file section which you will find under the MORE tab. That is where the writers who would like their writing critiqued have uploaded their pieces. You can upload something or just come and see if we are a group that would work for you. If you decide to submit something for comments, please keep your story to 3000 words or less. Double space it and put your name and page numbers on it. Hope to see you,

    Going to try to write more this weekend. I have enough to submit already but it is funny how events lined up in opposition after I declared my goal. Good thing I had a head start. This week my car and back both went out, and I dreamed I died in a nuclear explosion. The only good thing about this week is I had my writing already in progress, and am now on the mend!

      You know for having that bad stuff happen, your mind had to raise the stakes by having a nuclear explosion. I think you're ready to write.

    Looking forward to attending.

    Good job, Brenda. Maybe you can submit for the next meeting. It was good to see you again. Your comments are always thought provoking. Thanks.
