Notes:

Solame welcomed a new member to the group tonight.  Her name is Jane and she is working on her memoirs.

Robert pretended to have an agenda and later in the meeting called Michele a super genius.

The meeting part held mostly discussions about our need to meet, or at least try, to achieve our goals.  Time went quickly and soon it was time for the writing portion of the meeting.

Goals:

  • Candace Haven workshop goal – Write 5000 words before next meeting.
  • Standing goal – Blog

Jaci – Get Edward and Nikki to Nashville

Robert – Will write 15,000 words if everyone meets their 5000.  Work on Demon Within. Work on Witch book.

Michele – Write the 8 pages it’s gonna take to finish her Jade book.

Tammy – Put the meeting minutes up

Jane – Work on the 1st chapter to her book

Shawna – Quit volleyball.  Join the Peace Corps.  Write 50,000 words before next meeting.  Cure cancer.

Some of you might have heard of the word processing program Scrivener. I’ve personally never used it but know a few people who have and they swear by it for doing draft work in creative writing. Right now through NaNoWriMo you can get an extended free trial version of Scrivener, including a beta version for Windows. The program will be good from now until December 7, letting you work on your NaNo project. If you complete the NaNo month with 50,000 words, you can buy Scrivener for 50% off.
