Write With Authority

Please upload your submissions (Limit is 6000 words, but you may go a bit over to avoid an awkward break.), double-spaced (Times New Roman 12 pt. is preferred) , in Word 97-03 (.doc) or RTF to "Files" under the "More" tab by 3:00pm on Sat. 8/16. Note whether it is a complete work or a piece in progress. Critiques will be optional on any work posted later. Bring your "crits" to the meetup so that you can present their main points, and please upload them to "Files" ASAP afterward. (If you submit work it WILL be critiqued, so there is an expectation of quid pro quo even if you do not attend the meetup.) Note: Some work submitted may be intended for mature readers, so if you are under 18 years of age we request that you obtain permission from a parent/guardian before you participate. At Flapjack's enter through the front door, make a right, and go to the tables at the far end. We're in the restaurant, not the pub. See you there!

    Hello all, I wasn't sure if I should let you all know about this or not. But I figured some of you might benefit by it. So here you are:

    Have a good day. :)

    A terrific meetup! Unfortunately, we learned that Ashley is moving. The good news is that she'll continue to participate (virtually).

    I was very excited to attend my first meeting this afternoon, but alas, when a 3.5 month old puppy is sick, only a fool leaves him in his crate for a few hours without potty breaks. Having already dealt with a few messes in the house this morning, I am not a fool! I will have to wait until the next session to meet everyone.

      Sorry, Ila. I hope your puppy feels better soon. Looking forward to seeing you next month.

    I know I said I'm be participating virtually for this meeting, but I am going to be there. I'm excited to sit down and chat with everyone!

      Yeah! I can't wait to see you!!!

      Wouldn't be the same without you.

    Just got my schedule. Working 8 to midnight. Guess I won't be coming..

    August 20, 2014

    • Ashley H.

      That's disappointing. I was excited to see you. I have your book to give back to you. If you send me your address, I'll put it in the mail.

      August 20, 2014

    • Zac

      That's fine, I'd hate to have you pay to send my book. Did you like it?
      I got my new hard drive in the mail, I'll be good to go by next month

    When is the ending time for this event? Busy day for me.

    August 22, 2014

    • Ashley H.

      There isn't a definitive ending time. It really depends on how many people show up and how long we talk. It's usually about 2-3 hours. That said, you're welcome to leave whenever you need to.

    • Mary M.

      Thanks, Ashley!

    I am still editing and rewriting. I can't tell you all how thankful I am for all the honest feedback. I'm really proud of how Stormgate is shaping up and I hope that, when the next version is done, the rest of you will be excited at the result! Have fun without me! I miss you all!

    So I uploaded last month's submission accidentally. I've replaced it with my actual submission that it indicates it's for August in its title. I blame the fact that I was on vacation for the mishap. Sorry about the hassle. I'm looking forward to Sunday!

    I plan to attend the Sunday meeting. I'll mostly be asking questions about the critiquing process and about others' experiences - successes and failures in the publishing world.

    Did anyone have trouble accessing the site yesterday?

    August 18, 2014

    • Tsiphuneah M. B.

      I did for about 30 seconds. It said Meetup was down, but when I refreshed, it loaded the page no problem. Not sure what was going on.

  • Zac

    I should be able to make this one. Still haven't gotten my laptop back. Got a quote from ASUS to retrieve my stuff. Just a mere $1500 to $4000....
    So I'm doing a lot of rewriting and re-editing. Hopefully I get to see all of you in August

    July 13, 2014

    • Don H.

      I hope we DO see you in Aug. We've missed you.

  • Mary M.

    I am just beginning my journey as a writer, so I'll be observing and soaking in everything I can!
