Note from Alison:
I'm proud of us! I'm proud of how we show up, determined to take the next step. Those of you who showed up on Thursday for Rebecca's memoir session were so engaged. Everyone of you asked intelligent, thoughtful questions that you wouldn't have known to ask a year ago. Your very struggles demonstrate understanding of what a memoir is and of the creative process. Our class could have been a graduate level class at a university. No wonder Rebecca is impressed with you.
I'm so proud of how, when I was gone for two weeks, you pulled off four events without me. What a great spirit of teamwork it took to handle the technical stuff, the food, the registration, the hospitality. Not to mention transferring the key!
Great job by everyone!
I'm so proud of what we're building little by little on Thursday nights--the high point of my week. I love how we show up, with our stories, our ideas, our Cheetos. I love how we put up with one another and try things that don't work and keep coming back because we're not just there to be entertained but we're committed to the ideal of a true writing community. I love how diverse we are and how we embrace new people and how we aren't there just to have an audience but because we truly care that we all thrive as writers. I love how I never know exactly what's going to happen.
We work, we share, we have fun, we have meaningful discussions, we make decisions about the direction we need to take next. 

Thank you for everything that you do and bring and say and try.
