About This Newsletter

I am one of those people who would say I love to write but, I'm not really a writer. WDC taught me to stop saying that. I write. So I am a writer. I am a dyslexic writer who found a place where it is rare for people to make me feel horrible because my spelling and punctuation might not be perfect. Instead, they offer helpful tips so that I can fix the areas I have issues with and do it with a gentle smile and a kind heart. You have to love people like that. I know I do. The fact they overlooked it to make me a mod and let me do this newsletter... Well that's a priceless Master Card just can't understand.

Letter from the editor

To those who are so new you may not have had time to figure it out yet or those who have been here a while and are still trying to get your feet under you, you may be wondering how in the world does one really fit in in such a huge place. Reviews is always my answer. Doing reviews is the soul of WDC, but we aren't going to talk about that today. Today we are going to talk about it's heart. The very heart of WDC is of course our brilliant The StoryMaster and The StoryMistress who are like the very young and very unique urban hippy parents (yes that is suppose to be a complement) to a multitude of writer children but surrounding the inner heart is the outer one, our groups.

If you have yet to join one you really need to look into them and consider it. We have so many different ones from writing groups, to poetry groups, to reviewing groups. Leading the charge:

Reviewing Groups

WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  (E)
Join the fun! We inspire reviewers through kindness and learning! Four time Quill winner!
#1300305 by Maryann
- They have an abundance of things to review and are one of the oldest if not the oldest group on WDC. They love a good newbie.

Showering Acts of Joy Group  (E)
On indefinite hiatus
#1499415 by Pat ~ starting a new journey
Ms. Pat and the Chickadees are always looking for good reviewers to help out. It would seem they never run out of items in the garden looking to be watered by the reviews of their members.

The Rockin' Reviewers  (13+)
~Quality reviews given in a positive and encouraging manner
#1630911 by Hannah ♫♥♫
- not only do they do some great reviewing but they offer a lot of help for newbies including writing courses or at least they did before I had to change my handle to: still trying to get internet.

The WDC Angel Army  (ASR)
Dedicated to promoting positivity, encouragement, and support to the WDC community.
#1188309 by iKïyå§ama
The angel army was one of the first groups I joined. Though no longer a member due to just being overwhelmed by too much to do, The angel army is an amazing place to start if your looking to feel at home.

Anniversary Reviews  (E)
Celebrate Writing.Com member account anniversaries with reviews. Earn GPs and MBs.
#1565040 by Same Ol' Sum1
- Not a group persay but sitll worth the mention. Everyone loves a good review on the anniversary of the date they joined WDC

Newbie Groups

Though many of the ones listed above qualify as great for Newbies there is one that stands out above the rest. If you haven't joined yet you should.
The Newbies Academy Group  (E)
Need assistance and guidance. Stop on by!

- Sisco has done an amazing job at helping new members learn the ropes. I highly recommend seeking out his group if you are feeling lost.

Writing Groups

October NaNo Prep Challenge Group  (E)
October NaNo Prep Challenge participants.
#1474310 by Brandiwyn🎶
- This is a once a year writing group. Its only really active in October but many of us couldn't make it through November without it.

NaNoWriMo Plus  (13+)
A writing group inspired by NaNoWriMo with monthly goals.
#1593387 by Dawn Embers

- I haven't had a chance to do much with this group but the premise has always interested me.

Charity Groups

RAOK Upgrade Brigade Group  (E)
RAOK (Random Acts Of Kindness) helps members by Upgrading them.
#398524 by Writing.Com Support
- this is one of my favoirte groups because we get to pay it back by helping out people who can't afford their upgrade. They are also a great group to review for. It's all about paying it forward.

 Transformation Game Group  (E)
This is the group for those who wish to be transformed for charity.
#1833897 by scriptboy
- This is a new group to me but it looks interesting.

W.T.G.H. Upgrade Group  (ASR)
W.T.G.H. Upgrade Group
#753439 by Lexi
- I am not familiar with this group either but any group willing to help with upgrades is a group I feel I should promote.

As you can see, the heart of WDC is alive and well and full of abundance that you can join in on. We hope to see you join one or twenty, which ever works for you. I think I'm currently at 24. I would have never made it here without the WDC Groups. Hurry and join before you miss out on something.
