Thanks so much, Pauline. I really appreciate the welcome I have received. I will do as you suggested. I want to learn as much as possible. It seems like you guys have created a treasure trove of help, information and fellowship here.
Thank you Pauline, I am looking forward to this journey. I have set up a blog lauriejoreichart.blogspot.com. I am eager to learn more and share my writing. I take comments and input. That is an invite, by the way. It is strange how they truly do feel like our children walking out the door.
Pauline, you were so good to ask about how to welcome new members, and I am really sorry that no one got back to you about it sooner. The best thing to do is to click on "Find Out Who's Here" on the top righthand navigation on the main page, and just browse through the newest additions. The newest members will appear at the top. On another note, thank you thank you for your comments on the Five Questions with Diane Meier. I saw her at the event on Wednesday evening and she really had enjoyed hearing from you. I also wanted to let you know that there is a London Salon of Women Writers -- are you in London? Drop me a line any time at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can tell you more about it.
Thank you so much for your kind words about my article on Katja. It means a lot to me to be able to share her amazing story. I'm also excited to have been brought to your She Writes page, and I'm really enjoying your screenwriting blog; I've already bookmarked it!
I couldn't more agree, Pauline. What a moment not only of history -- a woman winning at the Academy Awards!, but also an artistic victory, especially over the silly teenage-boy-mentality of Aavtar! Reason to celebrate. Catherine Bigelow rocks!
Why thank you! We're working on a little remodel of The Story Spot right now, growing and bringing in other active groups such as this one on SheWrites where we can. There are so many interesting people and discussions out there. I'll put my noodle towards thinking of ways we can collaborate. I think that would be great fun, don't you?
Welcome to the Bloggers: Let’s Make it Work! group. So glad you joined. If you haven't already, please visit the discussion New Members Visit Here First, tell us about your blog so we can list it on the members blog index.
I hope you will find, as I did, a great sense of community, loads of information and resources, and an incredible amount of talent. Jump in on ongoing discussions or start one if there is an issue you would like to discuss.
Also, let me, or Julie Jeffs, the group administrator, know if you have any questions.
Pauline, welcome to Screenwriters and Story Editors. Glad you've come along for the fun. Do drop in to our Introductions thread and share a bit about yourself and your work. We're writers at all levels in our work so feel free to ask questions, seek resources, and share your own expertise and experiences (which appear to be considerable!) Here's to getting to know each other.
"Hi and let me be one of the first to welcome you to Shewrites. This is a terrific site, tons of resources and innovative info. As my own bonus, you have access to my teaching site and free teachings on memoir. Just click here…"
"Catherine, Just waving hello. If you’re looking for places to connect here, we’d love to have you join us in the Novelists (Struggling or Not) group.
Hope you enjoy it here, and best of luck with your writing.
Warmly, Meg Waite Clayton…"
