I just hope they all get emails like did! Rjs good to see ya Hon. Without chat not many come on. 1 lady was going to try and get a chat room for us but stuff happened and I haven't been able to check with anyone. Haven't seen a wow in here in a very long time. I contacted Irish when I found out Focus passed away as we were Facebook friends.

Wow, I hadn't heard about Focus. Since you're on Facebook, I'll PM you here so maybe we can connect on FB.

Focus

Sorry to hear that Focus has passed. I stayed at her home one night when visiting the USA, she lived in Lodi, California, and was kind enough to drive me to visit another friend further north. Remember the good old days of WritersChat? ScribeWOW is still around, and Focus’s daughter married and settled in NZ if I recall correctly. I wonder if she is still there? Funny, I remember Focus’s first real name, but not her last name, one of the problems of using these nicknames all the time! I think to get things going again, you really need a phone app, or mailing list, or a Facebook group that people are able to access easily and regularly.

FocusWOW tribute

Found her tribute page:

So loved what Focus did with WritersChat all those years ago, for not only helping develop writing skills, but develop people’s friendships online.

Thank you for sharing that info! I too miss the old days and this site has almost become a tomb with mostly voices of the past. So little activity and oddly I didn't get an email of a new post. A few have had some ideas of how to bring it back but so far nothing.
I haven't seen a WOW in here in forever. So, so sad. The advice and friendships were lovely.
