Wordsmith Syndicate

Well look at me, I have a project. I was the first up tonight to talk about my prospective project and Jennifer, the group leader, said it sounded like a passible project. I have to hone some of the 'milestones' of it. Standing up in front of the group I shot my mouth off, you're shocked right? She asked how many writers was this project going to reach. The number '100' actually escaped my lips. This is by Dec 22nd no less.

I think I'm going to set up a Ning for this. I posted the question of how to promote this on yelp talk and a friend who knows about these things offered to give me his input. Hopefully I'll get this sorted by the next meeting (next Wed) where hopefully the project will be 100% approved so I can move forward.

I am hoping the group would attract writers of all genres and serve as a place for people to encourage one another and also collaborate. For the Austin writers, I plan to have a get together once a month. I have other plans too, but that's the basic plan.

It will be interesting to see where this goes.


  1. "If you build it, they will come"

    Count me in. My girlfriend said yesterday that I needed to write more and then I came home from work and you'd posted this. Serendipity.

    I also have friend in Dallas who is in too.

  2. GET OUT!!!! This is AWESOME!!! Jack N on yelp is going to help me with advice as how to proceed.

    Ohhh, I'm excited!!!
