What are some Key Topics/Issues you'd like to discuss in the Group?

Writing schedules, outline usage for book length works, the "angst" of just being a wordsmith and why writers in general seem to harken from the "Dark Side of the Moon" as per the POV of "civilians"...NON-hackers, that is...;)

Crime and murder mostly but the odd purely uplifting or sardonic fictional short story as well.

Share ideas, both from a creative and structural sense, interested in seminars as well but not grammatical critique.

What Barbie T. is saying about this Meetup Group

Feisty and brutal that meeting was...ahh, the smell of blood shed upon a writers group floor...;) Hey, listen, People, on the CWM About Us Page, I warned ya this would NOT be a PC/Uber Polite gathering where we enable bad habits, just as the gang in Paris was not. I'm all about the craft, the discipline and the work involved in bettering one's skills and improving one's works. Soooo, having said that, IF (on the rare occasion) I see that amateur beliefs or practices are being bandied about, I WILL don my suit of armour and fight to the death to eradicate said, especially when I KNOW, from my education and work experience, such beliefs/practices WILL a) hurt YOUR present day and future manuscripts and b) jeopardize YOUR skill development. Period. I will apologize for my bull-in-a-china shop delivery (you people KNOW I have no bedside manner) but I will NOT apologize for caring. Nuff said. Nothing more to see here, folks, move right along...;)
