The Wet Noodle Posse

In 2003, a group of about sixty women met each other online for the first time. They were finalists for the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart award – the top measure of achievement for unpublished writers in the industry. Like finalists before them, they formed an Internet loop to discuss the upcoming awards ceremony at the national convention, held that year in New York.

Most of these online loops dissolve shortly after the convention, but something happened on the way to the Big Apple. This particular group found they had a level of camaraderie unknown to them before, and they stayed together. They even named themselves. When one member expressed doubt about her worth and talent, another threatened to cover thrash her with a wet noodle for doubting herself.

That’s how the Wet Noodle Posse was born.

We shared some of our thoughts and talent, first with an ezine, later with a blog, but our lives have become progressively busier and we've had to change our focus once again.

We're all doing different things. Many of us are published, most of us are still writing, and some of us have put other interests as primary. But we're still around!

We're on FACEBOOK! Come join us there.

forgive me. I've never posted on your blog before but I have been a frequent reader. With your new Facebook site, does that mean that you won't be posting anything here on your blog anymore?

Jody,
We don't have any plans to post on this site. I think any new announcements will go on Facebook.

We are sorry to not continue the blog, but it was getting harder and harder for us to carve out the time for it.

I hope you'll come to facebook or follow some of the individual blogs that are listed here.

As a reader, I am of course bummed that you don't have time for the Wet Noodle Posse... but as a writer, I'm so thrilled for you! I'm guessing that your collective publishing obligations keep you busy.

Good for you.

Thank you Diane and everyone at WNP. I do understand your reasons for not continuing the blog.

One final question: will the blog archives still be hear to read and review? or will the entire blog be shut down completely?

I know so many questions.

Jody

Jody, the blog archives should remain as long as Blogger allows. We're going to be keeping this last blog up as a way to access the archives.

I know there's some great stuff we've done. I'm particularly proud of our Golden Heart preparation of 2007.

What might disappear eventually is our website. www.wetnoodleposse.com
When the host site asks for more money, we are likely to let the website go. So if you want anything from our old ezine at the website, best to copy it soon.
