This group was created to address the needs of a large subset of members of the Round Rock Writers Guild. It was the manuscript store-and-forward site to manage the critique schedule without overly burdening the rest of the membership with excessive, irrelevant messages. It worked well.

Recently, Meetup made an unannounced decision to remove the file-upload feature. As we require manuscripts to be available for review at least two days prior to a critique meeting, the need for this Works in Progress site is moot. All of our meetings are now scheduled in www.Meetup.com/RoundRockWritersGuild, and as we have no further need for this specific Meetup group, we will shut it down by April. Therefore, we are not accepting new members here.

We are in the process of setting up a Google Files site. It will require for you to have a gmail account.

You must be a member of Round Rock Writers Guild to participate in this workshop. You are welcome to come and audit a meeting or two. We have critique-format meetings five or six times a month, depending on the calendar -- every Monday night and the third Saturday morning -- to help each other in developing our writing, using a workshop format.

The prerequisite: Anyone participating in a workshop must submit a piece of their own for review and read those to be workshopped that day. (Consider that to be more of a guideline; members can review without having submitted anything.) We will receive the most benefit from an active discussion among all members attending a workshop day. That being said, we follow a round-robin feedback procedure, and depending on the number of manuscripts and the number of participants, sometimes, there's not much time for deep discussion of a particular piece. There is no requirement to attend all the WIP workdays, just to contribute your writing and to read the pieces to be discussed on the days you do attend.

    "Sorry, guys and gals. I seriously overestimat­ed my energy level following a 20 hr drive. I'll probably be tucking myself into bed around 6! I have some trips coming up that mean I won't be able to make a meeting until the end of the month. :("

    "Whoot! I'm on my way back to TX! Providing I can recover sufficientl­y from our 20 hr drive, I'm hoping to stop in to say hi to old friends (*cue sarcastic word play by Mike L), meet new faces, and maybe even do some writing!...­"

    "Hi! I went to the More and Files sections, but a message said that Meetup no longer supports file uploading. Am I doing something wrong? I have 8 pages (Chapter 9) I would like to submit. Thanks!"

    "It's almost 4:30 and still sitting on I35. Traffic at a standstill.­ Since it's unlikely I can be there by 6:00, I'll just say see you next week. Jim, do you want me to post my notes or just wait till next week?"
