This is a Test

Just a test to see if anyone is listening... I will ask at our meeting if anyone saw this message. The test will be if you know the secret word (happy!) and, if so, I will give you a free ARC from a small supply we have of upcoming books.

Tired and Worried

Is it just me, or is there a lot of tired going around? Just trying to figure out if it's the heat or something else. I mention being tired to anyone and they seem to feel they are too, so what gives?

Any ideas?

Challenge for an Article

Hi, all...

Linda here, with a writing challenge. I would like to start a blog series with the theme: Truth and It's Discontents.


If you'd like to participate, just write a short little essay and post it here for all the world (well, our tiny part of it anyway) to see. I will watch for entries and perhaps share them with our members at the next meeting (this Wednesday night for those who are really quick). But otherwise, I will encourage members to visit the site and…

Invitation to Members to Blog Here

Hi, everyone.

Just a reminder that you can blog in this space and share your thoughts with other members as well as folks who drop in to read our content. If you have another place where you blog, you can include your link as well. But remember, if you are someone who has signed up here to be a "pest," I will delete your content quickly, so don't bother. Ha ha!

NaNoWriMo Status?

Did anyone take the challenge this year? If so, let me know how you're doing. You've got just 3 more days, but a lot can happen in a short time!

Good luck!!!

INWG November Meeting 11/16 6:30 p.m.

Our meeting will be at Auntie's at 402 W. Main, Spokane, WA for those who can make it. We have a guest speaker - John Soennichsen - who will talk about his experiences with both being published with the aid of an agent for his nonfiction (Bretz's Flood), and also going the self-publishing route for his fiction (the Fat Detective).

Join us for an informative presentation and great discussion with Q&A.

See you Wednesday night.

INWG Website Up and Running

As you can see, we're up and running again. If you are a member of NING (it's free, I believe) you can enter a blog post, add photos, etc. This is a good place to enter notices if you are looking for a collaborator - either for writing or illustrating - or an editor for your work.

We just had our October meeting and discussed local area publishers - what they offer and requrements - and also tips on finding an agent.

Check here for further news to be posted…

New Website Under Construction for INWG

Well, there's one thing that remains the same: Change.

We're working on a new website for INWG which will be designed to meet our specific needs as a group. While NING has delayed switching off the current networks (now aiming for August), we do not know when this site will go dark. Since we will be paying for a site here, we are going to look at our own ISP for a website. Might as well get the best for our money.

Although the new site may not start off with all…

Possible Changes to Meetings and NING Site

Hello everyone!

Thanks for your support of the site. It looks like a couple of you have been making contact and sharing information. I want you all to know that we are considering the value of the site carefully, since beginning July 20th, NING plans to drop networks unless they begin paying a fee. I'm not sure it's worth it, frankly, and I don't know if I (we) can afford it. While it's not a lot, it is still a regular fee that must be budgeted into our slim…

I have recently deleted several blog entries which were inappropriate. This is a network for writers... not a place to sell or advertise products. Thanks for your cooperation!

August Meeting Featured Russ Davis of Gray Dog Press

Russ Davis filled our heads full of valuable information concerning the state of small press publishing these days, and offered several "success" stories about authors he is either helping with their first book(s) or reissuing. Members were pleased to have lots of time to ask questions and talk about relevant issues for them personally.

INWG looks forward to having more such speakers in the future, so stay tuned!

Sample of Linda's blogging

This is a sample of what you can do for a "blog." When you are signed in, you can add your blog here, just as I have for this example. YAY!
