We Should Come…

We should come to share..

We should come to hear…

We should come to be heard…

We should come to lend an ear.

We should come to encourage…

We should come because we care…

We should come to be enlightened,

deepest writings then laid bare.

We should come never frightened…

We should come to dream together…

We should come as writers,

as writers to be better.

We should come to cheer each other on…

We should come support another…

We should come here to nurture,

like a child is by his mother.

We should come feeling safe…

We should come not to annoy…

We should come never bullied,

we should come seeking joy.

Our writing never sullied,

we should come to hone our craft…

We should come always trusting,

harsh critiques left to the past.

We should come for our heart’s desire…

We should come to publish…

We should come with nothing,

we should even come with “rubbish”.

We should come to our writer’s group…

with no “should” required!

We should come to our writer’s group,

brand new stories to be sired!!!

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
