What Is Happening Today on Gather ~ Thursday January 9, 2014

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on January 10, 2014 0 Comments

The Tuesday WE editor is in the hospital. She is very sick.  The doctors have to get her infection under control before they can do surgery on her.  Her daughter is keeping me updated and I will share what I can with you.

There have been a lot of changes within the groups on gather.  Many of the once active groups have become very inactive because members have had problems with submitting posts so much that they gave up.  The ability to submit posts is working once again.  So lets get the party going!

The Writing Essential group is one group that suffered, struggled and is reviving once again.  We have new editors and they are excited to offer new prompts and writing styles.

As with anything, change is always hard. We will miss all the outgoing editors.  I would like to personally thank them for all their hard work and dedication.


 The post today will deal with groups as well as an introduction of all the WE editors.  Enjoy

 PLEASE Remember to add your links to your latest posts in the comment area of this post and I will spotlight them in the next edition.
