      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Any writers on the forum?

I don't mean you have to be published, but I mean, is anyone working on a novel, novella, or short stories?

I'm getting back into it after a few years of a dry spell. Loving it.

I've been picking at a novel for several years....the outline is complete, as are character sketches plus about 50 pages of text....its fun

 

I used edit medical journal papers for the surgeons I worked with, so I actually have my name in print. The work was tedious at times, but so interesting.

I started working on a novel (turning into a possible trilogy *sigh*) since May, I think. So far, about 15,000 words written, tho not all of it on the story directly--the rest is character interviews, scenes that won't make into the story, etc. Been a lot of fun so far.

I was just published in an anthology. Came out Labour Day.

 

Had a fair bit of positive results from being published online, including an article about Kate Middleton after the new baby that went very viral, and was republished by the UK Mirror, and interviewed for the news. That was interesting.

 

Working on fiction, and putting togther something based from the blog and other articles I've done, see if i can get any interest.
