Welcome to our blog website. Writing melded with dedication and friendship tied the three of us together for nearly twenty-five years. We are not professionals. That is, we are not paid for our writing. We are compelled by our love of words. A writer is anyone who strives to examine their innermost thoughts and imagination by putting pen to paper or tapping away on a keyboard. We were encouraged by teachers and mentors to record our journey as we managed the group and stayed together for such a long time. The book that evolved, Telling Tales and Sharing Secrets was released on September 6, 2022. In this blog, we share news of our path to publication with its sideroads and roadblocks, as well as updates on group dynamics through essays, stories, and poems. We will provide a prompt each Thursday for your group. We invite you, dear reader, to comment or ask questions. Our goal is to encourage writers to create groups that support the craft of writing, explore and expand creativity, and build long-lasting friendships. See a link below to an article about our group and book published in the Explorer Newspaper, September 28, 2022 with the full text on the Our Book page.. We are also written about in the Lovin’ Life After 50, October 2022 issue, and The Marana News, September 28, 2022 issue. Sheila Bender, a noted poet and teacher, highlighted our group in her January 2023 Writing It Real newsletter. A link below connects to that article. We were featured in the recent Tucson Festival of Books as independent authors and have done signings at two Barnes and Noble locations in Tucson.
