I think a key factor to make this work is that we (at least those that made it tonight) are at very similar points in our writing. Which is...stalled and trying to quit making excuses. "No Excuses" is going to be our battle cry, and we're all tasked with holding each other to it. We'll try to be as ruthless as possible in culling excuses that keep ourselves and our comrades from writing those pieces we've been holding back from the world.
I'm also excited to read what this group of women has to write. Even though I know them all personally, and we've clearly got several things in common already, what we want to write runs the gambit. We're not all interested in the same age groups, genres, or subjects...though I wanted to read more of each of the sample pieces that were read tonight. And some of the blog ideas going forward are very promising (and informative.)
It was pointed out that next month is the start of the year of the Snake. Before I share a cool info graphic about the year of the snake I would like to point out that there are a lot of crap web sites out there that are optimized for Chinese horoscopes. Google hasn't figured out their keyword stuffing techniques quite yet, but it's clearly not quality content. End of marketing rant.
Three cheers for the Unruly ones getting serious about our writing.
