    A couple of us are here early. The door is locked. Are we just too early?

    July 9, 2015

    • Jeremy M

      Well, with no one here to unlock the door, everyone is leaving.

    I'm having some transportation issues at the moment. I may have to wait til the open mike night at The Buning Bush gallery to meet with with you. I'm also trying to atend another appointment as well this evening & was hoping to split the time to spend some at both. Though If I don't have reliable transportation by tomorrow I won't be able to atend either tomorrow & will have to wait til next week to atend more when car is returned running good.

    Is this event CENSORED or can we read mild adult content with 1 or 2 curse words?

    I have a 11-minute beginning to a novel. It works as a Cliff-hanger/Intro in a short story sense.

    Please let me know as well when and where it will happen. Wednesday night is not a good night for me as I always have meetings on that night.

    Is anyone still interested in this event? It has been several months since the last comment...

    July 30, 2014

  • Jeremy M

    FYI:
    EVERY 3rd Wednesday of the month:
    FRUGAL MUSE BOOKS Open Mic Night in Darien from 6:30-9:00pm... Essentially the same event but not yet a part of this group...

    I just found the date, and unfortunately, I'm already committed for tonight. I hope I can make your next meeting.

    February 10, 2014

  • Eve L.

    My husband Joe, a musician and I will come if available on the date set.

    February 10, 2014

  • Ardyth K.

    How sweet of Laura! I will come if I can make the date and time.

    Is the organizer of this group still organizing? If not, let's make some changes and make the meetup happen. Laura has offered her living room in Naperville..let's pick a date!

    January 28, 2014

  • Ardyth K.

    Thanks Daniel! I'll give it a try!

    January 22, 2014

  • Ardyth K.

    That is a great idea, Jeremy! I have a Chucky Cheese near me I can check out. Also, I will call my library here in Darien.

    January 16, 2014

  • Jeremy M

    If it's a location issue, perhaps check libraries for meeting rooms, mini-golf and kid's party places for side rooms we could meet in, and restaurants with spaces that can be closed off or sections that are secluded from the rest of the customers.

    I am looking for a writer's critique group. Is this one? Sounds like things have not been happening. I lived here years ago (just moved back) and we used to have our writer's groups in one another's homes. Took turns. Has to be a small trustworthy group.

    Hey guys...I'm changing my rsvp because I don't think this event will ever happen lol :) And that's fine. I think this planning conversation has passively been going on since last summer. If a place, date, and time can't be arranged in 5 or 6 months, then perhaps its simply not meant to be. When the right time comes everything will fall into place. Its just not

      Oops, I did it again. ;) Something about my phone & the meetup app always gets glitchy. I was saying Its just not supposed to be this difficult :) I'll gladly join in if ever a day comes that the stars align. Merry Xmas & Happy New Year :)

    I say it's high time we simply set a date and make it happen. I think Oakbrook Barnes & Noble was a great suggestion so let's just go there. I agree w/Daniel, let's get together before 2014. If 10 people can go or only 2 or 3 people can go it doesn't matter.What date is good

    Elmhurst Public Library has awesome conference rooms available - I believe the charge is $25 total, and I would be happy to take care of that fee if it serves the group -

    Hello everyone :) I'm new and this looks like a nice group. I see there's been trouble choosing a date and place. Just throwing it out there, there's a Panera @[masked]th St in Oakbrook..What about meeting on Sunday Sept 22nd?
