This group is helpful. There are many aspects of writing--from craft to plot to characterization to theme to setting--and the variety of members in this group can help polish that novel, short story, screenplay, poem, or essay.
Hi Brennan: I am a bit technologically challenged as far as Meetup goes. Can you please point me to both the link that shows where to go for tomorrow's meeting and the link for where to find the materials that are going to be critiqued? Thanks!
Hello Brennan, I just joined your group and RSVP'ed for tomorrow's meeting. Is there anything that I need/should bring with me? Do you require writers to bring with them some of their work to present? Please let me know. Thank you, Stephanie
Hi Brennan! Thanks for joining the group! I see that you're not familiar with screenwriting, so I'm not sure that the critique aspect of the group will work for you, but I'm planning on doing one get together a month just for the members to meet each other, so, hopefully, you will get a chance to network with other writers and learn a little more about screenwriting there.
When Brennan says he "doesn't understand poetry," he's just bluffing. His work, his wit, and his writing all have poetic elements: Eliot's love of cats, Nash's exuberant jokes, Herbert's seriousness and concentration. When his novel is acclaimed and authors everywhere are envious not only of his success, but of his hair, which is going to look luxuriant on his book jacket, I'm glad I'll be able to say "I knew him when."
Thanks again for taking the time to try and show me how the group site works. 'Preciate it and your strong presence in the group.
