    Sorry, Michelle, I don't know. Are you using a .doc or RT file?

    Thanks everyone for your encouraging and great inputs. Question for any computer savvy member. My files seem to be much larger than most. Any idea why?

      Michelle: You may want to see if there are any graphics of any kind in your file. Other then that it could be the formatting you are using. You may want to go to Kindle and use the formatting they recommend there. You are using a Mac, I believe, but I am sure there are others using that too. Send me a file when you have time and I will look at it.

    Hi Debra,

    You know, we haven't. Sometimes we have a second meeting a month just to discuss writing and the writing market. That might be something to do with a few people from the group.

    Are you coming to the meeting? A lot of people find it pretty motivating. It's only once a month, but it gives you a deadline if you want to submit something. I hope you can make it.

      Thanks Mary. I have been before but without anything to submit I don't get much out of it and don't feel comfortable commenting on others work. Need to just make the time to do more. I'll work on that. :-)

    Have you guys ever thought of doing "shut up and write" sessions where we get together and just crank out writing together in a coffee shop. I need to have a time outside the distractions of my house to get me jump started and would love the group activity/commeraudity. Just a thought...

    I appreciate your guidance on the short story I am working on. Thanks!

  • Brenda W.

    I am putting the novel through a book-in-month grind next month, rather than wait for it to start flowing. I honestly don't know if that's the best thing, but I don't care at this point because I would like to make it past page 50 on at least one novel! Also noticed that I have quite a few half-written short stories. So for group submissions, I figure I am going to tackle those and maybe make it a goal to finish all of them. Thanks to the group because I am starting to see the ways that fear holds me back. I am becoming more willing to try things and see what happens. Right now I have revived a ghost story, of all things. I'd don't generally write that stuff, but for short stories, maybe I do! I always think of people in the group who write in genres I don't deal with. Ghost story for Mary coming up! And maybe then a romance story for Elsa. Oh but wait, I have an unfinished sci-fi too...

      Sounds great, Brenda. I like all your stuff, so reading a ghost story by you should be fun. Excellent goal about putting the novel through the book in month grind and getting your short stories done. It'll keep you busy. Maybe we should talk about goals at next month's meeting.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
