What sort of stories do you write? And if you have anything published, tell us about it (even if it's not SF.) We love to hear about all your successes.

Just retired after working at an answering service from home for several years where I wrote a grammar column called “Words R Us” for the employee newsletter. Worked as a reporter for a weekly newspaper for a couple of years. My writing runs the gamut of science fiction, fantasy, suspense, humor, noir flash, bucolic flash about gardening. I haven't done horror yet, but intend to. My goal is to write novels and have half a Young Adult novel as a result of participating in 2011 NaNoWriMo. Recently I finished a short story of over 10K words.

What brings you to the SF Writers Meetup? Is there anything that you hope the group will do for you?

I've tried many groups before this. A few have been very good but have either not lasted or have been filled with hobbyists. I believe I'm producing writing that's publishable, and I need more authoritative critique and the succor of rubbing elbows with serious writers. Ego boosting is good, but I'm seeking more in-depth critiques.


I've always written one way or another, when I was a teen it was mostly angst poetry. My writing runs the gamut of lenth and type. My first love has always been SF&F. I'm a first-time winner of NaNoWriMo 2011.

What Carol C. is saying about this Meetup Group

I love this group! There are members at every stage in their writing endeavors. Everybody I've met has been forthcoming and helpful. The site is full of resources.
