    Same here. It sounds like a great way to get feedback and enjoy fellowship of other awesome writers. Everyone that takes the time, energy, and courage to write from the heart are indeed awesome.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
