Count me in...

Great idea David! Thanks for the outlet to voice our opinions.

The Network has to have some patience. Things aren't going to happen overnight. A network like this has many dimensions of possibilities outside of being a conduit for employers, agents and so on. Writers are the most resourceful of people and the network depends on their vitality and intelligence. I would hope that when a person logs into the Sunoasis Writers Network they find something useful or add something of value. A network is a process!

David - With you behind it I'm sure this will be a success. And "The Selfish Giant" video? Wow. I haven't seen or even thought of that since I was 6 or 7 years old. I used to see that when I'd go to CCD and seeing it this morning sent me back about 30 years. What a trip.

Is it just my computer, or is that a terribly bloated rendition of the statue David at the top of the page here?
Comment by David Eide on July 30, 2008 at 8:11pm
Well, as far as the "bloated David" that was a picture sent to me by a writer friend who got it from some person he knows in South Africa. Its title is, "American David." Maybe this is the impression others have of Americans, I don't know. If it bothers people I can change it.

I am thinking of adding at least two new groups. One of those is called, "Finding jobs," since this is a network about enhancing the ability to find jobs. The other would be called, "Q and A" since Sunoasis has had a QandA for years and has answered hundreds and hundreds of questions.

So, if anyone has any opinion about that let me know.

I think those new groups would be great. You should definately get on that :) Another place to look for writing jobs would be fantastic. Also maybe you could create a chatroom on here so writers can talk in real time, getting access to instant ideas and advice from other writers.

Are you going to start your new groups, the ones you mentioned? Perhaps you should start one for Muses. ;-)
Comment by David Eide on August 12, 2008 at 4:43pm
I will add those groups in the next day or two. The great thing about this Ning is that any member can make a group, any member can put up a blog or start a forum discussion, etc. I want to make groups that are focused on the essence of the Network which is career development and jobs. It can and will be many more things.

So I thank Vicki and Katrina for keeping my feet to the fire.

As far as chatroom, Katrina, I'll look into that. I'm not sure they have that capability. You can send messages to people in real time, back and forth, as long as you are both in the site. You might try that out.

New guy! Alan, 49 y/o wannabe writer. Just wanted to say hi, and maybe get some direction on where to get started.
