How Do I... Participate in a Monday or Saturday WIP Critique?
1. Have you registered on the Round Rock Writers Guild forum?
YES: Go to 2
NO: Register by clicking the “Register” link at the top of the page
2. Have you attended a meeting?
YES: Go to 3
NO: Let us get a look at ya! Come join us at Lamppost Coffee for one of our Work In Progress (WIP) meetings so we can meet you and you can become familiar with our process. New members don’t need to participate, as they do not yet have access to submissions. Just come listen, and be prepared to say the following phrase: “I laughed. I cried. It became a part of me.” Don’t worry, we’ll tell you when.
WIP meetings happen every Monday from 6 pm to 8 pm, and every 3rd Satuday of the month from 11 am to 1 pm.
3. Can you see a header labeled “Works in Progress” with the following boards in it: “Mon WIP” and “Sat WIP”?
YES: Go to 4
NO: Create a private message. Your recipient should be “admin”. Tell us who you are, which meeting you attended, and that you want to participate in WIP. Yes, you have to go to a meeting first. It's a privacy matter. Trust me, once you put your darlings out there, you'll be glad for this hoop.
4. Have you RSVP’d?
YES: Go to 5
NO: Find the appropriate thread under the “Works in Progress” header and tell everyone you’ll be going. Follow the format outlined in the first post and upload your submission. Make sure you read through all the other submissions by the meeting and have your notes ready!
5. There is no 5! There’s just four easy-peasy steps!

Admin: I just wanted to say that you all are the most amazing and I miss you terribly. I brag on my super supportive, wonderful writing group ALL THE TIME and there are writers all over the country who are jealous of what we have. Happy writing. See you in Nov!

Ja-bird: Hey! How about this. I'm very new to this group. I need time to review this week's submissions. The question I have is: can I give my reviews of these works next Monday? If so, I would like to skip tonight.

dan: I can not seem to find anything about how to post stories for Monday night's WIP
Sept 20, 2018 20:43:11 GMT
kathi: To Dan - Come to Monday night's WIP, if you decide it's for you, Kathrine will help you get access to post stories and critique other people's stories.

Admin: Head's up ... if you had access to the WIP group, but haven't been active on the forum in the last 6 months, your access has been limited. If you are interested in becoming active with WIP again, just contact Admin.

kathi: BellyBlast - if you do not yet have access to the WIP pages, you'll want to come Monday night, sit in, make sure you want us to perform critiques for you and you are willing to do so for us. Then Solee will give you access. See you Monday!

kathi: Say, Kathrine, I noticed you've scheduled the Thursday night Write-Ins to run from 7-9. Was there a request to make them later than the WIPs?
Nov 30, 2018 11:23:03 GMT
Admin: Head's up ... I have updated the meeting descriptions both here and at MeetUp to more closely resemble each other and what we're actually doing. If you see mistakes, please bring them to my attention! Thanks!

Admin: I have also added meeting dates/times through Feb 2019 for Mon WIP/Thur WriteIn and through Mar 2019 for Saturday meetings. Let me know if you see errors. I put all the meetings on the forum calendar but it's very helpful if you RSVP at Meetup.
