What subjects would you like to see come up in writing workshops? Non-parenting topics, maybe travel?
Do you even like the 'workshops'? I have not participated because the topics don't spark my interest
What do you think about the fact that only the moderator can start new threads, does this make you feel unwelcomed? I think it is pretty limiting, especially for those who don't do the workshops but are still writers and want to talk writing with other mamas
Please elaborate on why, or why you do or don't feel welcome or 'at home' here. I write for a living -- and there are so many challenges to being a full time mama and trying to write for clients and meet deadlines and do your best work. But I don't feel like that fits in here -- and it SHOULD. It seems most of the talk here is for mamas who solely write for the joy of it. It would be nice for professional writer mamas get a chance to chat and share challenges. Also different genres -- for example I write TV scripts. Not that anyone would want to READ those (they are dull and technical on paper) but it is still a mode of writing.
Please be brutally honest, we are only trying to make this a forum that you really want to visit
I thank you in advance for your answers. If you have something to say that you want to do privately, send me a PM. (I'm toughskinned so don't worry about offending me)
Thank you..thank you...thank you...Kelly

I liked that idea! You could write as a mother or a small child or anyone! Sort of open-ended. I wanted to post it for anyone who wanted to play, but there really wasn't anywhere to go with it, so I guess being able to start new threads will be a plus!
