"...you have to keep close to people who see you as a writer. In this sence, new friends maybe the best friends." -David Bradley

Gertrude Stein wrote,  "To write is to write is to write is to write is to write is to write is to write.."  Who can say what she meant (She also wrote,  "Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose"), except perhaps exactly what she wrote: that writing is all and everything of it, the beginning and the end.  That to write is to write.  We just do it. How to get started writing?  Write.  How to keep going?  Write.  -Judy Reeves

"Make sure you have other people in your life who will exert benevolent pressure to get you to keep writing." - Anne Lamott

Show me a writer who isn't scared at least some of the time and I'll show you a person who is as out of touch with their feelings as a sociopath or as spiritually envolved as the Dalai Lama.  We're writers, of course we're scared.  That doesn't mean we don't write.  Or rewrite.  Or show our work to others.  Or ask questions.  Acknowledge the fear and move on.  Light a candle.  Say a Prayer.  Ask for help.  Comfort and encouragement one another and be kind. -Judy Reeves




"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but really great people make you feel that you, too, can become great." -Mark Twain


To all former member's of the Crest Hill Writers' Group.  It doesn't feel like six years have passed.  It seams we would be together forever.  We've all had our ups' and downs'.  We've seen members come and go.  Some members have even changed genres But, most importantly, we've made long lasting friendships that will never end.  So, all is not lost, and hopefully we can still stay in touch.  Sometimes change is for the better. 

Change has brought forth an idea for a new writers' group to be formed, and for some of you, that maybe an option for further growth, and for others to take a break.  What ever you may decide, all of us from the Write Way Writers' Group would like to wish you the best.  Stay committed, keep reaching you goals, and continue to claim yourself as a writer.
