I’m delighted to have so many people interested in the Sept-Dec 2012 writing group, even with 10 days or so to go until our first official check-in. I know some of you from past groups, but we haven’t all been in the same groups, and there may be some new people here, so I’d like to go around the room and have you introduce yourselves. Feel free to comment on any of the following, or add your own thoughts about yourself and your work:
Where are you in your career? What sort of institution(s) do you work for or study at? What’s your big-picture goal, not just for this iteration of the writing group but for 5 or 10 years out? What challenges do you face in making time for (or expanding!) your writerly identity? To whom or to what would you most like to apply some of Dame Eleanor’s Anti-Bugge Power-Writer Spray (https://dameeleanorhull.wordpress.com/2012/02/17/writing-group-week-2-bug-spray/)?
