Who Are We?

Who are we? We are the resident writer’s group of the Cary Area.

As is the case, in the beginning for most writer’s groups, residents of the area wanted a safe haven to read and write on subjects close to their hearts. With this thought in mind, a small group of people began to gather at the library. In a short time, the group grew and now we fight, as all writers must fight, to keep this time for ourselves.

Arriving promptly at noon or if we are honest with ourselves we arrive either a half hour early because we can’t wait, and maybe a few minutes late because a great thought struck us just as we were about to walk out the door and we couldn’t take a chance on losing it or more often, life is an intruding monster. But does it really matter?

We are here because we share a common bond with each other that encompasses everything. What do I mean by everything you might ask? We mean everything! We write poetry, sci-fi, romance, children’s stories, non-fiction, even memorials. What do we not write about? I don’t know because like I said in the beginning, we do it all.

About Cary Area Writer's Group (CAWG)

Who Are We? We are a group who live, meet, and support each other in Cary, Illinois. Writers… that is what we call ourselves, but we are so much more than that. We have full time jobs, full time kids and full time hassles like anyone else. We don’t come up with stories. we live them. The only thing different about us is that we write them down. We don’t sleep. We have deadlines that are constantly looming and we always hope for that elusive quiet that never quite finds its way to our lives. If you think you can keep up with this pace, if you can put down the phone long enough to write a sentence or two and make sense, well I’m sorry to say you’re a writer and I know what you’re going through. Stick to it. Publication is just around the corner and then you can sit down. Or can you? It’s all in a day’s work but you know you wouldn’t trade it in. It’s who you are. By Grace Rellie
