    Any meet-ups outside of the forum?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by AdamWriting, Jul 15, 2010.

    I enjoy getting together with fellow writers and discussing projects. It's hard to discuss plots and character development with people who don't do it themselves. I live in Bergen County, NJ. Are there any face-to-face writing groups formed in this forum?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Well, should anyone ever have plans for a vacation to tropically delicious Puerto Rico (roll the R for extra tropical effect) feel free to look me up! I know all the good beaches.

    And if anyone ever decides to vacation in New Mexico and sample our hospitality and incredibly awesome green chile, just let me know. I'll drag you to any coffee shop or restaurant you want and discuss writing over coffee, cake, or liquor.

    If anybody wants to visit Belgium: don't! It's way too boring. ;) Okay, maybe not everywhere, but at least where I live. I could give you a tour through my boring town, though. Yay...

    Then I could show you all my writing which you wouldn't understand, since most of it is in Dutch... so unless you want to follow Dutch lessons- stay where you are!

    Meet-up-romances, if that counts? lolol.

    That'd be so amazing, if we had a WF convention one day.

    Though we'd probably end up sitting in a circle, coughing and shuffling our feet, being too embarrassed to talk to the people we've known on here for years. LOL.

    And I, being the fabulous extrovert would be monopolizing the conversation, mugging the camera and leaving everyone feeling slightly scandalized. ;)

    "Who is that wierdo?"

    "That's Wreybies, the mod. Kinda reminds you of a spider monkey, aye?"

    You forget to mention your cascading hair, haha.

    I would definitely be shuffling my feet and quiet.

    I remember loving the way Wrey says 'cascading' in one of his videos. In Essex we say "CAS-CAAAAAYYYY-DIN" :p

    I've yet to actually meet anyone from the forum in person, but I will admit that every time Joel and I are discussing a potential vacation, I think "who do I know from the forum who lives there?" He probably thinks it's a little weird. But I don't care. :)

    I'll look you up if I am ever in Vegas, losing my money gambling and I need a place to crash, haha.

    I no longer have cascading hair. :(

    It was just too much upkeep.

    Don't know how girls do it. And somehow there was always some random hair in my mouth which got annoying.

    Oh Wrey, it's even worse with lipgloss. The minute a little breeze comes passed, I'm pulling my hair off my mouth. Not nice, or attractive, lol.

    R.I.P Wrey's cascading hair :(

    And if anyone wanted to vacation in PR, I would take them to Flamenco Beach on the tiny island of Culebra which is part of the Puerto Rican Island Chain. Most people don't know that Puerto Rico is really more than one island.

    Anyway, Flamenco Beach regularly rates as one of the Top Five Beaches in the world.

    If God had a private beach, this would be it.

    P.S. Bring your PADI card because the diving will leave you gobsmacked!

    And my husband is terrified of the idea of diving. I need a partner!! :(

    Wrey, I think that's the only ocean-beach I'd like to go to. Oceans freak me out, but that looks so lovely. :)

    Whoa what a pristine locale. The coral must be exploding with life, if only I had the cash and time, Wrey, I'd join you.

    I would probably be doing the same as Wrey, I'm not shy at all. :D

    Seriously, a WF meetup would be great. It'll happen someday!

    I think I would make everyone extremely uncomfortable.

    Actually, I'm extremely quiet, shy, and seemingly decent in RL...

    So am I... Hey, we'd make a perfect pair! We could just sit in a corner together. ;)

    And I would enjoy the look of perplexity on your faces as I try and bring the two of you out of your shells. :)

    "Come on! Everyone has to participate in the Bikini/Speedo Limbo!! It's way fun!"

    I'd be the one stood with arms folded saying 'No chance' at that one, Wrey :p

    I was actually thinking about this the other day, weirdly. Need to lay off the melange.

    Um... throw the bikini idea in the trash can, Wrey. Nobody (yes, nobody) can make me do that in public. :eek:

    We could just have a giant barbecue. :D

    I seem to be living off those.

    Barbecues, that is, not bikini ideas in bins.

    Predicting threads and ideas on WF is quite worrying when you think about it. Even if it does mean I get to make terrible Dune references.

    I wager I might be able to. A few whispered sweet nothings and empty promises and Lydia's dancing on tables.
