At this point in a typical winter, I would be looking out my window at the snow covering the lawn, cinching up my robe a little tighter because the heat is not that good in my home office, and watching the steam rise from my coffee as I settled in for a lazy Sunday afternoon of working on my latest story. Today, though, the sun is out, the local kids are running up and down the street in short sleeves, and I’m thinking that maybe the writing can wait until later.
I currently have 13 writers on the list for our round-robin story, and I just received chapter seven, which means we’re halfway through. I’ve been enjoying the chapters as I’m seeing them, and I hope you’re as curious as I am to see where the story goes. If you volunteered to participate, keep an eye on your mailbox, because you may be next! If you’re interested in participating but haven’t notified me yet, you still have time. Please send me an e-mail and I’ll add add you to the list.
The next THC Writers Group meeting will be Saturday, March 12th, at the Tamale Hut Café, starting at 2PM. If you can attend, we’d love to see you there. If you would like to submit a piece for critique during the meeting, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with an idea of the level of feedback you are looking for, and I will distribute it to the group. If you have something you would like feedback on but you can’t attend the meeting, I’d be glad to forward it to the group as well. We can discuss it at the meeting and get some comments back to you via e-mail.
Hope to see you all on the 12th for the Writers Group, and on the 19th for the March Reading Series night, with featured reader Nathan Beauchamp.
