Elizabeth, We're delighted to have you join us in the novelist group – please accept my belated welcome (I’ve been finishing a novel on deadline, and traveling to boot). If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion. We do a live chat the first Wednesdays of each month at 1 EST, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one. I hope you’ll enjoy the group.

Meg Waite Clayton
Novelist Group Moderator
Bestselling Author of four novels, including The Wednesday Sisters (a writing group novel) and the forthcoming The Wednesday Daughters (Random House/Ballantine)

"Great essay, Nancy! I do get the feeling that some of these big name "memoirs" are more autobiography - which requires so much less reflection."
