I’ve had all I can stand…

var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);
document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”));

try {
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-9168462-2”);
pageTracker._trackPageview();
} catch(err) {}
And I can’t stands no more…
I’m pretty much fed up with the writing groups that I joined. I joined them because I was looking for a way to connect with writers in ‘real life’ but in the last two months I have made no real connection with anyone. I don’t want to quit (cuz I’m no quitter), but I would like to be a member of a writing group more catered to my genre. It seems pointless for me to be a member in a group where one person is writing about their ‘God’ experience, one person is writing about sports, and still another is writing a young adult novel. So that’s when I got the idea to start my OWN group. I think it’s a FABULOUS idea. BUT…I have no idea where to start. If you guys have any ideas, or information on how things like this are started and organized I would really appreciate your input. I know I can look for members through meetup.com but I’m not exactly sure what each meeting should consist of. I don’t want to start this up and have it fail because of poor planning. So gimmie some ideas!

  1. Starting your own group is a good idea. Perhaps you might consider Yahoo groups? There are a ton or erotica writers out here in Blog Land that possibly join you if you reach out to them….

    It's just a thought….

  2. Thanks for commenting, kitten.

    I thought about doing the Yahoo groups, but I know in my area a lot of the 'joiners' use meetup.com as a place to find and make 'friends'. I just don't know what their restrictions are; meaning I don't know if they will even let me start a club like this.

    Primarily, I'm looking to start something that will eventually grow into the sort of thing they have going on in NYC with In the Flesh and in Philly at L'etage, but first I have to get all the dirty birdies to come out of their hidey holes…that's the tricky part.

  3. Hey Elle,

    You might want to check out Desdmona's Fish Tank, which is a community of erotica writers. When I was first getting published, I went out there and the community is nice and helpful. You can post stories to be commented on, and can comment on stories. I actually think you have to comment on others' stories to post your own. They also have message boards.

    Here's a link:

    Good luck in whatever you end up doing!
