Welcome to the CLW Blog!

Our group turns two years old this August 2020. That is an exciting time for us as we all strive to continue to thrive through a world pandemic.


This group was a creation of our fearless leader Nancy Golden. On a lark or a whim or perhaps inspiration from above, she posed a question on a social media site regarding writing.

“Is there any interest in joining a group that is focused on writing?”

Our first meeting, held in the backroom of a BBQ restaurant, was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Well, several friendships.


Our list of accomplishments for the first year was monumental for a fledgling group of writers. Bonds quickly formed and continue to be strong even with these last few months of isolation or social distancing.

This too, shall pass.

During this time of inaccessibility to physically connect, we have found ways to communicate through social media platforms, including using tools like Zoom.

Instead of this virus being a negative force in our lives, we have discovered that not only can we assist each other and be around like-minded people but, we can take that goodwill well beyond the borders of our city.

If you are interested in writing, are an author, you will find this group welcoming.

The purpose of this blog is to provide useful information to the writing community at large. The blog is also to provide a central place to share stories, ideas, and inspiration.

At some point, I (Scott) will be providing writing prompts via our twitter account soliciting stories. Those prompts, of course, are to sharpen our metaphorical sword and make us all better writers.
