Re: Dialog #1

All of the teenagers are going to the movie theater this evening." Tina, a mother only in her early thir...

Re: Be A Better Writer--ASK ME ANYTHING

I have a question about Pro Writing Aid. It seems to be related to Grammarly and both appear to slow my computer down to a crawl. Before I give up using them, do you have a suggestion that might remedy this problem? I can't find anything on the Internet, so would very much appreciate any suggestions...

Re: Be a Better Writer--Cliches

Okay, here goes. "Take the bull by the horns." My first thought is, "Go for it!" or "Dive in!" but that's a cliche also! My world is full of cliches - help! No really, thanks Jan. "I'm going to just begin,today - now, and not wait for a "someday"! 2. People don't process cliches in addition to skipp...

Thread closed. Please follow new link below.

Good morning all. I came over to close this thread, as it is no longer the one we are working off of. So good to hear from everyone exited about moving forward. Most of us have complex lives. Writing from, within, and for some - about - those complexities requires that we learn to juggle our time to...

Re: General writing Accountability group desired to start

Is this group closed? There was a mention of 6-8 people max at the beginning of the thread. Just let me know if the group is getting too big! :D I'd love some accountability. My life is very, very busy with raising my six kids and homeschooling 5 of them. I also work as a birth doula from time to t...

P.S. Trudy, it took courage for you to put your goals out there, and conviction that goal setting is a real need for all of us. Thank you. God bless you as you continue stepping out and up to be the writer who He is calling you to be. Looking forward to hearing this week's goal results.

Re: General writing Accountability group desired to start

Though this is a focused group, and we will want to avoid replication, and offering the same things that FW offers in other parts. I say this because expectations can become a burden, and can kill the very things we are trying to accomplish in meeting needs based around time management. However, we ...

Re: General writing Accountability group desired to start

My goodness. I was waiting for P.M.'s, and haven't been back to this thread. What a great response. I wondered if others would feel the need I felt! It appears you do. :D First, what this group isn't. It isn't a Buddy Group. It is simply meant to be a safe place to discuss/present or goals God has l...
