I’ve been a member of the Chat Noir Writers Circle since 2009. We meet twice a month to discuss life, find inspiration and share our stories! Led by Carol O’Dell, author of Mothering Mother, the group has seen many stories published, blogs born and books written. I count these talented, supportive women among my closest friends! Check out Mary Ellington’s blog, Random Thoughts or Marilyn Fowler’s book Silent Echoes or blog. In addition to our meetings, we usually work on our writing at an annual writer’s retreat.
