“ Are you a person that wants to write, but gets stuck creating &#034;That perfect Sentence&#034;; thereby leaving the passion for the story to wither away, while you debate punctuation or word length? You need to be around more experienced writers so they can share with you the learning processes that each one has developed for every aspect of storytelling. Everyone seems to have an approach, they are all valid; you just need to pick one up, try it one, and work with it for a while. Eventually you will find a great fit! This is the group where that process of transformation begins. It doesn&#039;t happen overnight, or, maybe over 6 months, the more you attend, write, discuss, and share your own work and ides,someday you no longer find your self spending 67 minutes on one single sentence any longer. Breakout of the solitary world writers create around themselves, where nothing therein challenges them to improve on a wonderful idea. Please come check us out each month!!!!! ”
