What we're about

This is a group for all writers, experienced and inexperienced, published and unpublished. Writing is a difficult, wonderful, agonizing, fulfilling, boring, and exhilarating activity. Working and writing together, we can minimize the hardest parts of writing and grow our creative potential together.

"Making people believe the unbelievable is no trick; it's work... Belief and reader absorption come in the details: An overturned tricycle in the gutter of an abandoned neighborhood can stand for everything."

One monk came up to me and gave me a teaching
which helped me for so many years.
He said,
"Pushing the wheelbarrow is easy
thinking about it is the hard part."

How true that was.

As soon as I stopped complaining,
as soon as I stopped thinking about it
and just pushed the wheelbarrow,
that wheelbarrow was lighter,
and there was no suffering anymore.
It was the thinking that was causing the suffering
whatever test you have in life,
stop thinking about it so much.
Just do it.

"Plot is people. Human emotions and desires founded on the realities of life, working at cross purposes, getting hotter and fiercer as they strike against each other until finally there's an explosion—that's Plot."
