To develop my writing skills by meeting people who possess these skills and are willing to teach others how to use them. Then once I have fine tuned my skills I hope to pass them along to others.

I wanted to send a quick (belated) welcome to the Write it Forward, Real Success and Profit for Writers group. We're glad you're here!
The group's discussion forum is packed with ideas, and is great place to get feedback on your work, ideas and questions. Jump into the conversations and let us know how we can help you reach your writing goals.
How are things going with your book(s)? Hope you're having an excellent weekend!
PS Also, in case you're interested, I offer a free e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! to those who join the Make The Move email community (also free). I think you'll get a ton out of both resources.
I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.
I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!
Finally, it sounds like you are interested in writing. If so, consider joining the Write It Forward. There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.
Plus, you might want to check out Speak It Forward as well. It's another group I'm involved with that has a lot of activity taking place.
Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!
