Hi Valerie, Our critique group is fantastic, but it took a lot of work and some devoted people to keep it together until we began to attract a variety of serious writers. Now some are getting published due to all that hard work. It's a great feeling.
I want to Thank You for joining my group Blooming Late!
I didnt get to write you innediately as is my custom when I approve you but I was aaway from home so please forgive my late response to your membership here.
I took the liberty of looking at your blog link included in your profile an find it highly creative! You hae lovely photos included too like the one above in here too!
Now let me fill you in a little about us here at Blooming Late-
There are many wonderful women like you here in our group from all ages, genres and levels of writing who are a real source of support,encouragement and inspiration. I hope that you will be able to make your writing home with us!
Please, when you have time let us get to know you a bit better by posting in our "To kick things off" discussion or if you don't feel like doing an extensive intro then just say Hello" on our wall on the front page.
We have just started something new here too. We have launched our own group platform,we have our own group blog called "The Blooming Late Journal" which link can be found in our Discussion area if you would like to write a post in there and then plug your blog, your book and your own platform.
Then we have our own Twitter hashtag so we can talk to each other in there as well as make sure to re-tweet each others blog posts and important links, etc. It is #BLWriters - just add it to any of your tweets so the group can see them by looking for the hashtag.
And best of all, we have our own Facebook Fanpage under "Blooming Late Authors", please LIKE the page and then feel free to do your plugging in there as well as put things in there that you may find useful or fun for the group to see. Especially when you post in your blog.
We would like it also, if as time allows, you would "friend" everyone in the group in here as well as in Facebook and Twitter so that our groups publicity potential is maximized for all the writing work we do and is seen out there on the net.
We also have a PAGES section to the left of the group wall where you can list your great blog-as well as FB/Twitter handles (which I would ask on the latter, if you could get that up right away so that everyone could connect with you), among other things like your birthday etc.
We also have useful DISCUSSION areas that might be a help to your writing. You can choose to follow as many or as little Discussions as will interest and help you,we don't have any requirements on how much anyone participates but I would ask if you will set your settings in here to recieve the group emails so that you can be kept up on anything important in the group as a whole. On average I only email the entire group once a month.
Also, if there's anything I can personally do, I'll be happy to help with anything you may need.
Valerie: It is wonderful when the kids flourish and are able to come to terms with their challenging childhoods. In my job, I work as a coach to adoptive and foster families and for so many, it is a steep, uphill slog, but sacred work I think.
Hi Valerie, I just got your message, thanks for your interest and of course you "qualify"! Please just go to the group Blooming late and press the join button so I can officially let you in, look forward to seeing you!
