  1. I really enjoyed this post, hearing from numerous peeps! I belong to a picture book writing group. Each member is invaluable to me. I've also belonged to a few YA/MG groups.

  2. Hi Jess - I agree with SA .. such an interesting range of group members to read about. I haven't joined a group yet - but may do so in due course ..

    Happy Easter to all concerned ... Hilary

  3. Yeah, everyone was different. Never belonged to a group except online.

  4. I gave my first talk to this group, after publishing. They are a friendly bunch, and made me so welcome. I never joined because of my writing workload. However, I would have done, and had fun!

  5. Thank you Jessica. Your interest is greatly appreciated. When is the next book 'Golden Cliches' likely to be published.

“I'd make a comment at a meeting and nobody would even acknowledge me. Then some man would say the same thing and they'd all nod.” ~Charlotte Bunch

“Probably what my comment meant was that I don't care about the circumstances if I can tell the truth.” ~Sally Kirkland

“We're not going to pay attention to the silliness and the petty comments. And quite frankly, women have joined me in this effort, and so it's not about appearances. It's about effectiveness.” ~Katherine Harris
