Creative Writers Ambler Meetup

At this Meetup, we'll gather as a group to share our experiences with writing during the month. We'll share ideas and resources and offer encouragement about writing and the process of developing our projects - for ourselves or for publication. We'll also take some time to do writing prompt exercises or other fun writing activities as a way to increase our spontaneity, gain energy and inspiration, and have fun together. If you have writing that you'd like to share, please bring copies with you. We are always happy to celebrate the positive in the work we review and to offer constructive feedback where invited. If you have ideas for fun writing exercises we can do together, please bring them! We will be meeting once per month, on the 2nd Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. If you want to suggest additional times and places to meet, please know you are encouraged to do so. This is a community for all of us!

    Your kind words of encouragement are appreciated, perhaps more than you will ever know. I certainly would be interested in having a professional editor help me assemble my stories into a book. Admittedly I am a babe in the woods on such things and need all the help I can get. It means a great deal to me for you to take an interest in my stories.
    I close with the utmost appreciation- Gary

    I am normally uncomfortable being with a group for the first time. The group's immediate welcoming friendly tone eliminated most of my trepidation. It seems to be an interesting mix of truly unique encouraging individuals. If I had one wish to take from last evening's meeting, it would be that some of the group's enthusiasm and self confidence would rub off on me. In many ways I am like a fire left unattended, unless someone bothers to stoke my creativeness every so often my fire will eventually go out.

      I am so glad you joined us, and I am especially glad that you shared your beautiful story. If you have an interest in having a professional editor help you assemble your stories into a book, let us know. Among us, there are many with great resources for how to take our work to that next level. Your story has such a beautiful heart, a beautiful voice. I'd love for you to share it more.

    I'm sorry to beg off. I still have a long list of TO DOs before I can leave the office tonight.

    Best laid plans...I can't make it tonight. I was just handed about 3 more hours of work that needs to be done this week and tonight is the only time I can do it. Have a good meeting. Hope to see everyone in February!

    Happy New Year to all. Let's finish that poem, short story, novel or screen play this year.

    I noticed the initial link has a very difficult track to hear the words of the song, I am adding this one as well so you can hear the words clearer. I apologize- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lMbVzFtvM8

    Thought I'd share. An article I wrote was recently published in the NEA Today, a magazine distributed nationally to all teachers who belong to the union. http://neatoday.org/2013/12/12/what-ive-learned-complacency-is-a-teachers-worst-enemy/

    I hadn't realized I had clicked on anything requiring a response, but I must have. I have been retired for over a decade and to put it bluntly I am older than dirt. I am a member of the King of Prussia Meetup writer's group. Other than seeking a group geographically closer to where I live, I have no complaints. They are a friendly, supportive group. My writing is mostly memoir based, but my stories can stand alone and be read without any concern for order. From time to time I attempt to put a humorist spin on very ordinary every day situations. To change things up when inspired I have been known to write poetry. My main outlet for my stories is doing readings at area Open Circles. I find that satisfying, but often wonder how I might reach a larger audience.
    Questions: are all the 2nd Wednesday of the month meetings held at the Ambler Professional Center, Bldg. B and is there a limit to how many people may attend?

      Hi Gary, Welcome to our Group. While we typically meet at The Resiliency Center in Building B of the Ambler Professional Center, sometimes we meet in other locations (like this coming Wednesday at Lisa's home). Also, Bobby has organized other events that happen on different Wednesdays of the month, and many of those happen at Zoto's Diner. I hope you will be able to join us soon.

    Hello everyone. I hope you have a great holiday season and the New Year rings in bright and with fortune favoring you all. I know that occasionally people run around the (writers) block and have a hard time getting jump started in the new year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCjxZHGHL4Y

    My challenge to you if you are experiencing the malaise, listen to the music, let it waken your muse, feel it in your soul. Then write a 1,500-2,000 word short story based on the feelings the music invokes in you.
