    Thanks for the ideas.
    The concept that Zofie might fall in love with Milli is growing on me--although I see that as a nonsexual relationship. More like BFFs. If Milli's programming is good enough to entice Tedd into loving her, then it's good enough to entice others--unless Tedd is just some sort of freak.
    Damon, interesting plot sequence. I need to work on how it might fit with my time-line (the sooner Tedd moves out, the better his mom will like it). The last line, "Tedd saves Zofie..." seems like a bit of a hand wave, but the back and forth between them is pretty hot.
    Thanks again, everyone.

      Scott, I believe you're right, it would certainly be possible to show the charm Milli has without her and Zofie entering a sexual relationship. I do hope we helped you out. I know there can ba a LOT of ideas in those sessions (I got the same, a bit overwhelming) and it can be hard to keep it all straight after the fact. I'm not certain if we wouldn't benefit more from meetings with people within our own genres. This seemed particularly true for KC for example, as I noticed a lot of confusion when he said he wanted to write non-fiction, including my own. I'm not sure how much we helped him.

    I am so glad I went last night. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your help. I was so nervous I thought I was going to swallow my tongue and choke on it! LOL. It was fun!

      Babaft, you're not writing in my genre, but I still saw the potential of your story. You did great.

    My storyworld wasn't easy to describe in a short period of time, but people got it well enough to come up with some interesting ideas. Even if I didn't immediately recognize how I might use those ideas.

    Things I like best about writers: They listen and with the most skillful imagination offer help. And they like said help from others too. My brain is happy when I leave.

    Guys, I can't make it tonight; health issues. Good luck and have fun.

    Are we still on tonight? I have never driven on a wet road before (I'm really new to driving, I practically crawled my way home last time since it was my first to drive at night too). I have been thinking about missing tonight (scared to drive), but I am so conflicted cause I'd like to be there too.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it to this one, after all. My wife and I had a scheduling conflict and I ended up being the one to compromise. Sorry folks.

    Hi, to whom it may concern. I do believe that I committed to showing up today but so sad, I can't. Out of state company from Arizona has popped in. I'll try to fit in May 9- night though?

    Roberta, Babaft, myself, and Casey will be bringing our story problems. We went pretty fast last week and we *might* have time for a fifth.

    I need all the help I can get. Reserve a spot for me please. Hopefully, I will be confident enough to bring my synopsis and expose myself ;-). Tonight's meet up should give me a boost.

    Hoping to be at a point where I would like divergent threads thrown on the loom. At the very least I will have honed my questions so that they don't sound as though I'm trying to answer the questions of the cosmos.

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.
