groups is Writers Eating DC.
My Friend Dee drives the bus over there and does a great job motivating me. She is the writer/artist for the comic Reply-All in the Washington Post.
She drew the trading card of me on the right!
I found this and other groups in meetup.com.
Go check out Meetup and find a group near you. I even found a group near me that focus's on Science Fiction specifically. There are groups meeting every week near you in libraries, schools, bookstores and coffee shops!
--Drink coffee, make stuff up, talk about it with people!
