Review of October 2008 Meeting

Dear fellow writers and aspiring writers,

Last night's meeting was attended by twenty people, including our three newest members. (I'm excited about this, but don't want to overuse the exclamation point!) Kaye Coppersmith set everyone to writing immediately about a character, and most were able to read their results to the everyone. What a talented and giving group!

I'd like to remind you, gently, that you'll get out of this what you put into it. I spoke with a bestselling author who has sold millions of copies of her books, and with several whose first published book is like mine, still a dream of the heart. The desire and excitement to write was the same in all of them, all of us. This is a group that encourages and challenges, and I ask that you accept the challenge, drink up the encouragement and share your talents with the group. It can only help you get better, not only in writing, but in life itself.

Keep writing and living,

Absolutely! With that in mind... I was thinking that I might be able to do a blog post here once or twice a month on writer's resources. I've compiled a pretty sizable collection of books and tools; it would be great to share that information. What do you think?
