    Is anyone participating in May 2016?

    How is everyone doing? I’m a pretty big fail so far. I have maybe 7 stories (out of nine I’d planned to have by now) and NO stories revised (I’d planned at least one by now). Worse than that, I feel lost. This has led to meta-thinking. What IS a story, anyway?

    Imagine my surprise to see our very own ‘Austin’ group! Besides lazym, is anyone else here a Nanowrimo’r? Not that it matters of course. I am hoping that some of my other writer buddies will sign up as well. Perhaps we can have a write-in somewhere if people are not too dispersed here 🙂 I live in Southwest Austin, close to the Y.

    • That group first appeared a couple of years ago. Hopefully some of its original members will be back this year.

      • Hey Julie, I hope so too. I will meet up with some of my Wednesday morning writers and perhaps they’ll join up as well. Alan [see below] is one of them but traveling at the moment. I started reading my father’s memoir [he passed away in 1976] and I already have imagery and ideas in mind for this month. going down memory lane provides lots of…[Read more]

    I’m going to have a rocky start. Just arrived in India for a couple of weeks, bu will be checking in to see how everybody is doing. Good luck to all.

      Hi, Alan!
      I hope you are able to write anyway.
      Is this your first Story a Day challenge?

        It is. Jet lag and a 10.5 hour time change helped get day one accomplished. I’ll be back in mid-May and hope to make it to the writer’s’ group then.

    • Well, you’re ambitious, I’ll say that for you. Even if you don’t have a chance to write properly for the next couple of weeks, you could certainly capture some great ideas (and maybe turn out a Twitter-length story or four…)

      Have a great trip!

    • Hey Allan, we’ll miss you Wednesday morning but I ‘know’ how well you can write about what you see and experience around you. Oh yes, I remember that bus ride story!! Happy trails! 🙂

    Anyone in Austin writing stories this year?

    • Finally made it. I’m practically done being the PTA president. just finished our big school carnival this past Friday so I am totally ready to ‘just write’.

    Hello small quiet group!
    Who made their goal?
    Who’s happy with what they accomplished?
    Who’s doing this next year?

    Maybe we’ll have a more active group next time!

    Wow, not much happens on the Austin, Texas group, huh? I’ll be at Genuine Joe’s Tuesday evening if anyone is looking to meet up with a fellow story writer. From about 6:30 to 8:00, I’ll be in the “Cellar” with the “Sit down, Shut Up, and Write” meetup group, and will probably then hang out in the main room for another hour or so.

    Howdy all. I’m planning to go to Central Market-North after work today, around 5 pm, and work on my story for the day. If anyone wants to join me for an impromptu meetup/writing group, let me know. Thanks!

    Hey Austinites! Welcome to this group! If anyone is interested in setting up a meetup or in-person writing group, let me know! I’d love to meet the other locals (if any) doing this.
