* I have had many requests for sub groups lately, I just don't have the time to create anymore groups ;) If you have been thinking of starting a group here, these are some of the requests I have received ... ~Writing Group ~How to get Published Group ~Marketing Group ~Goal Setting Group ~Art Swap Group. Feel free to start a new sub group here if it's been calling your name!!! If you are a leader of one of the sub groups & do not want to run it any longer please ask someone in your group if they would like to take the reigns for you, so the group can continue, these are some wonderful groups & would like to seem them continue. I see there are a few groups where the Leaders have dissappeared.
