Hi. My name is C.S. Cole and I'm a member of INK, the group of writers who have a hard time scheduling INK meetings. I miss our meetings but life has encroached heavily on every last one of us. Couldn't be helped. Nothing wrong with that.
I propose that we take the pressure off trying to schedule INK meetings in its old form and try something different. Once a month, at 7:30 on the very first Sunday of the month, I'll be online and I'll be here for a single hour. Anyone else who can make it to this non-meeting is welcome to do the same. No pressure or guilt if you can't come.
We can post something here on INK, or email each other with thoughts, links to ponder, and/or creative motivational words during this time. Whoever happens to show up can enjoy some writer camaraderie and a quick, on-the-spot prompt to get the juices flowing.
Proceeding toward a more dedicated method of meeting via Skipe or IM might be fun for the future. But in all honesty, I'm not looking for anything more yet, not because of lack of dedication or committment to writing but because I know, first-hand, how hard life can make things happen on a regular basis.
