Writing a book


I went to my first Utah League of Writers meeting last night. I LOVED IT! It is going to be so helpful. There were a few new people there. We set up a new critique group as there are already two. I can't wait to start with that in January.

I learned so much, just from that short time we were together. I really liked everyone who was there and felt so welcomed and comfortable.

I'm in the process of re-writing many parts of my book. It has been a lot of fun but very hard work. Now when I read a published book, I appreciate it so much more. People have no idea the blood, sweat and tears that go into writing a great story!

Thank you to all who help and give me encouragement! I love you for it!

Wohoo! Way to go. LUW has been a great benefit to my writing and is a whole new phase of getting 'REAL' about it. Best of luck. Critique groups are priceless.

I think it's wonderful you have a piece of your time set aside just for you!!

Can't wait to hear how things continue with the editing...

I've been really impressed with your aggressiveness and dedication to this Melissa-Lou. I can't describe how neat I think that is.

I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your help and wisdom. Having a friend like you, is the best blessing.

Also, I wanted to tell you how beautiful you looked yesterday. Sitting there in the chair, with the sunset sky light coming in your windows. Your eyes were a twinkle. I really wanted to stay and visit.

Thank you, for being all that you are.

Melissa, you're going to be a great and famous writer someday. Well, actually, you're already famous now! But I mean really famous! Someday, we'll be saying, "yeah, I knew her back when..."

That's downright awesome. A critique group is the single best thing I ever did for my writing.
