What we're about
Writing, whether full-time or in those spare moments, can be a lonely pursuit. My goal is that KC WSW will provide a support system for writers of all types. Not making the progress you'd like? Tell the group your goals and we'll help you by carrot or stick. No idea if self-publishing makes sense for you? Ask the group. Get answers. Need to bounce an idea/story/blog post off patient and experienced ears? Drop your story into KC WSW's DropBox, show your smiling face at the next meeting and bathe in the constructive criticism.
The DropBox is for you to upload writing you'd like others to read and track your progress on the Support and Success Journal. The Journal has fields for: (a) your current goal, (b) your deadline, (c) what you've completed by each meeting, AND (iv) your cumulative reward points for meeting your goals. WHAT ARE THE REWARDS?? Hell if I know, but I'm sure we'll figure it out. Like our stories, KC WSW is a work in progress.
FYI my first goal was setting the first meeting. I just gave myself one (1) reward point. Damn skippy. Want us to gently push you forward? Enter a tough but doable goal. Want nothing but to meet writers? Your goal is "Show up." Easy peasy.
Oh, and we're centered downtown(ish). There are other great writers groups in KC, but holy moly are they way the hell away from Downtown.
